  1. '"Well, I have some idea how fast I was going, yes"
  2. @JoelKatz - I'm wondering if you or anybody on the Ripple team would be willing to share some perspective on comments that Brian Kerr made recently at the Sept. 12th Singapore Cosmos meetup? I realize that there is only so much that can be put on the table for discussion here, but it's fascinating to watch all of this unfold. Here's what he said: "We actually had one of our early investors, Ripple, ask us - ‘hey, we have all these MSBs, and they’re sending money .. with XRP using our platform called xRapid. But they don’t want to have the currency risk of XRP. Could you guys actually build us a stablecoin?" https://youtu.be/Ej9uVbOtpeo?t=4588 The inquiry that Brian is referring to - how recently was it made, and was it borne more or less out of regulatory concern or that of market volatility? As @MrFreshXRP alluded, we know that Kava will be launching their CDP platform soon, which will likewise issue a stablecoin that can be collateralized with XRP. A few months back, Brian made these comments in the Kava Telegram describing one potential usecase for a then theoretical Kava XRP backed stablecoin (USDX): " ... if markets were made on xRapid integrated exchanges for USDX, the MSBs that use xRapid with XRP currently could use USDX instead, removing volatility risk while still having the speeds they desire." Moving forward, how might any of what you're building now interoperate with what Kava is building, and moreover - in which ways can you envision one effort potentially benefiting the other?
  3. I was just curious why it had been making the rounds again now - whether there were any new developments, etc. I put the older links here for reference/clarity, but no reason to apologize really. This might not be new, but new to somebody, and equally as helpful --- but context is key, sure Incidentally, further down in Dan Tapiero's timeline he links to this great video

  5. Same ... also "Standard Bank is the biggest in Africa by assets and will be joining the likes of ING and BNP Paribas on the distributed network"
  6. They should burn all of them except one, then add a few more zeros to the right of the decimal. Win for everybody.
  7. In addition to your penchant for blaming everybody else on the forum but yourself for your investment choices - it's comments like this that everybody should keep in mind the next time you attempt to gaslight everybody about how sincere you are, playing on the sympathy of newer members to give you a 'second chance'
  8. He hasn't seen any of those interviews. His familiarity with Brad extends to whatever was outlined in the FUD dossier he was instructed to pepper all over social media.
  9. I don't like to see anybody sell under these conditions. I really don't. But I'll take it a sign that crypto-winter has finally broken, and thank you for your sacrifice.
  10. This is really what it all boils down to. It's actually much bigger than SCB 'using XRP'. As @Pablo stated: " ... one has to conclude that the SCB rep could mean absolutely anything." Hard to disagree with that, and it works both ways - it could mean nothing at all, it could be that they were in fact referring to a specific xRapid JPY/THB corridor, twice -- it could be that when they say "XRP system" that they are referring to xRapid for yet a third time - but none of it really matters right now. It will take however long it takes to roll out, and if one doesn't believe that and/or doesn't have the patience to see it through, that's another issue entirely. Tweeting 'wen XRP' at the Bank of International Settlements, and threatening a class-action suit against SCB isn't going to speed up XRP adoption. IMO it's likely they were referring to another corridor, in addition to the established network that we already know about: (October, 2018) https://www.cryptoglobe.com/latest/2018/10/ripples-director-of-product-talks-about-ripplenets-multi-hop-feature/ "Q: So, who on RippleNet is using this feature?? A: ... [SCB] are allowing customers to facilitate payments through Siam Commercial Bank into Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar, Thailand, and Vietnam. (For newer investors that may never have sorted through what Multi-Hop is, the above article is one of the best overviews I'd seen.)
  11. And that doesn't even take into consideration the legal terminology/implications of whatever 'we have no plans to use XRP' might break down to, and across different jurisdictions. I would think 'no plans to use' could mean a few different things ... 'we' could refer to someone along the chain using XRP, or not using it (directly) ... or that nobody plans to, but that - 'hey - things happen!' I'd defer to @Pablo for any of that.
  12. And that they've used that same example now - twice - over the past few weeks.
