  1. There's a lot of bravado about "HODL" and "diamond hands", and doing the opposite of your emotions. Fear has helped me out more often than not.
  2. I don't mind him but sometimes his logic just seems a little rigid - he says he never sells based on fear - like if you hear bad news about Ripple and the price tanks because of the bad news, you feel the fear and you do NOT sell (according to BCB). I sh*t myself when I heard the SEC news in December and sold into ETH immediately. Sometimes fear is instructive, or well....lucky.

  4. All I can say is - I strongly disagree. We've been here so so many times with this kind of news. Crypto's never been "safer" to buy than now in terms of adoption (e.g Visa using USDC), institutional investing and governmental support. It doesn't mean people aren't going to get rekt trying to invest in it, nor that we're not going to enter a bear market at some point (of course we are, we just don't know when). Today we had a pull back that's fairly typical (I think we had two already this year like this, 21st Jan / 14th Feb). The death of this asset class has been announced so many times - and yet more and more adoption occurs.
  5. I use Delta as a portfolio app - been using it for 4 years now. You could try kucoin if you're in the US - no KYC needed at all and it's a great platform (been using 4 years too).
  6. Why is there no buy button next to XRP? I'm very much NOT in the USA, and there's no buy button for me too. Is this CMC's continued hate campaign against XRP? They did an "April's Fool" this year where they moved XRP to some random low position in their rankings for a few hours. Ha. Ha.
  7. Thanks for clearing that up. I'm a bit trigger-happy when it comes to the idea of governments confiscating things
  8. SEC: "it's our job to look out for the little guy, the retail investor. And by 'the little guy, the retail investor', of course we mean our own interests"
  9. I'm confused - shouldn't those who had their crypto stolen get it back from the French legal system/government/whoever is holding the stolen crypto?
  10. Here's the thing: the SEC love to be vague to limit their accountability when they're in a tight spot like they are now. Who are "affiliates" of Ripple (for example)? However, either an exchange could sell XRP legally, OR the SEC deem it an illegal act and they consider exchanges to be "affiliates" of Ripple. There is no middle-ground. When a judge starts to lose his/her patience with the SEC on this matter, the SEC will have to unequivocally state the clarity of the situation (finally). When they do, and if it's the case that exchanges weren't breaking any law selling XRP, then why wouldn't exchanges seek damages from the SEC (i.e. take them to court) for loss of business?
  11. I like attorney Deaton's take on the SEC casually saying that only Ripple employees could be deemed to be selling XRP as illegal securities: why didn't the SEC tell that to exchanges when they started to delist XRP (the delistings were a direct result of the SEC's lawsuit, and the delistings directly harmed XRP retail traders). The SEC are either disingenuous (my opinion), or they are making themselves look like complete fools.
  12. The (sad) irony is that their job is to actually defend us. They're literally being sued by their (essentially speaking) customers for doing the very opposite of protecting them. Issuing a lawsuit 3 days before Christmas was basically a "mic drop" by the SEC - it caused maximum damage against retail traders. Clayton resigned the next day - not a good look. It's all looking bad for the SEC here.
  13. One thing I caught from Jeremy Hogan's most recent video is that the SEC unequivocally stated that only Ripple and Ripple employees sold unregistered securities (according to the SEC of course). According to Hogan, that gives the green light for exchanges to RE-list XRP again. Video:-
  14. Ripple stock you say? Ah yes...I was wondering when I get my XRP dividend. The stock broker that introduced these XRP investment contracts to me promised a quarterly dividend based on the company performance. I hear the Ripple board are trying to avoid issuing these payouts. Luckily us investors have the SEC on our side - they'll sort those rogues out! /s
