  1. We're caught in a trap.... I can't walk out Because I love you too much, baby....
  2. Like Phil Colins says… “I can feel it coming in the air tonight… oh yeah” I know when the market is going to turn to the upside. How? Every bone in my body is saying, SELL. Sell now, sell it all… quit. I bought in the early days, held XRP for years whilst the market burned me to hell. Then it went moon. Yes... it already went moon for some of us older hodlers. But I can tell you all now… it’s spicy. The nerves are twitching. Something big is going to happen. We have all suffered long enough. Strap in.
  3. If I might throw down a little here... thinking you missed the point completely P3T3RIS. But glad you got a chance to sneak in the word "racist", bet that felt good. Of course, that's just, like, my opinion man...
  4. Bravo... so good one could even apply Galgitron's Hopium to ... our current state of politics in the USA. Thanks for the refresher.
  5. This could be related as it is from Chase Bank. It is not well published. Perhaps it is not available to all accounts at Chase. But when I go to Global Transfer on my phone, I can send to almost anyone in any country converted into their currency. Every time I step through the process the wire fee says... No Fee. It may be that they are not charging as an initial promotion, but they do make the point that for any transfer over $5,000 there will be no wire fee in the future. My understanding is that the wire will happen way faster than it used to.
  6. The jury is still out on this one. It could be possible per articles such as this one, to use 1031 exchanges: https://www.forbes.com/sites/tysoncross/2018/02/19/the-truth-about-cryptocurrency-and-like-kind-exchanges/#21bed6216fd1 Accountants I have spoke to suggest filing as if it were short and long term gains. Then, for any trades before end of 2017, file an amendment with a disclosure statement using 1031 exchanges. That way, you avoid the IRS ruling against you on your original return which will trigger huge tax penalties should they disallow the 1031 exchanges. However, if they accept the amendment, you will typically cut your tax bill by a substantial amount. In my case, over 75%.
  7. You are correct but the thread ended in Feb. It is now June. More people have joined since then and it is still of great concern. But if no one cares that XRP is the child of the Tyrell Corporation. I yield
  8. Great.. I'll buy one tomorrow and hopefully all the chicks will think I'm cool
  9. Okay Plikk - where has this been discussed. Give reference. If so, I fall on your sword firmly.
  10. Hey Skeletor... back off on your useless comments. This is a topic for those dealing with serious wealth issues.
  11. Wow... are you married. Do you fart when you eat hot dogs. Way to squirt on my topic.
  12. Maybe something to think about in this depressing, well only 9,900 % increase from $0.005 over the past year or two. Anyway.. sorry.. point to raise is, what happens to the world when XRP hits $500. Sure, the world has had mega wealthy people before - JC was worth $3 trillion. GK was over $100 trillion. The Bezos and that 'man boy' from Facebook will be peanuts to the wealth that will come from this. Are we ready for rulers with that much financial muscle?
  13. Yeah and somewhere there is a guy wishing he hadn't spent 10,000 bitcoin on a couple of pizza's. Would be interesting to get her take on the loss of $58,000 for a nail. But hey man, I've been married 25 years so I get it.
  14. You got the right idea - being humble. But don't settle for just a year's salary... Grab that bull by the horns and ride him hard - get a 10x yearly salary Just be careful to know what you will do when you have that much.
  15. Not my thing. I'm only doing this as a PSA. I'd likely eventually get lynched if I stuck around here. I'm just glad I was born in the right time to see what this is. You do too. That's like better than 99.9%.
  16. Pretty cool eh... I know. It doesn't sound reasonable. Or does it. This will be my only time to comment here. I don't do this. You all decide. Just don't lose your nerve. You all know you backed the right horse!
  17. Again.. just my opinion... but what did email do to communication. What did .com do for shopping online. What is happening now is that on steroids. Real money. Connecting billions who could not connect. Sure Ripple could be the Myspace. But if it is not... Ripple will make Facebook look like a fly on an elephant. Again, just my opinion.
  18. Appreciate man. I delivered my 5th kid on my own. Couldn't afford the hospital. And that same kid put $2k in crypto from walking dogs. She's 14 and now has $800k. Probably gonna ruin her. But whatever. This is a fun ride. And don't be single man... get busy. Women drive men to success.
  19. Could not have been said better. Go talk to your friend that invested in stocks and ask if he/she made that return. As I stated earlier in this thread, the problem is not being proud of the crazy returns you make... it's how you will control yourself when you have that much money. Making it is always easier than keeping it.
  20. BEAUTIFUL. But even if you dipped and started to go under, would you sell... no. And it's not because you "can afford to lose" it's because you have to believe in something in life. You picked XRP. Right or wrong, go down with the ship or buy the ship. I admire your many posts. I am sorry to all for my sarcastic, obtuse comments. But please all pay attention. We are seeing something like nothing that has come before... or well that's just like my opinion.
  21. I love you guys... but if we go from 300 billion to 3 trillion market cap - who cares. Everyone wins. Well not bitcoin. We all know that's dead (myspace).
  22. I'm not salty, I'm sarcastic or so said someone. Sure I get it... I lost too for many years... You know how I won? I stuck to my guns.
  23. Okay okay Tiny... you lose calories walking out the door. You think that's maybe nonsensical, but can we both agree that life is swings and roundabouts. You win some you lose some. Think Beautiful Mind. It's all math. If you can't stand that you bought in at $3.00 and it's now $0.60... take a breath and buy more. Or if you can't, go have a beer. It amazes me that no one can see that Ripple is a lock. Sure did Facebook beat the crap out of Myspace... but is Ripple "myspace"? No one loses if they keep their nerve. That's not FUD that's math.
