  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.)
  4. 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.
  5. And that they've used that same example now - twice - over the past few weeks.
  6. It's the thought that counts, partner
  7. Check out this article from when Bridgepoint acquired Kyriba. I always thought the wording here was pretty tantalizing: "Kyriba says it has partnerships and software integrations with companies that include BlackRock and also payments specialist WorldFirst and Ripple Labs, a venture-backed global payments platform based on blockchain technology." https://ctmfile.com/story/kyriba-acquired-by-bridgepoint-in-1.2bn-deal
  8. Indeed - and it provides a convenient foundation for the next FUD to be sourced from, by way of "As Cointelegraph reports..." Sorry, but neither of these authors deserve the benefit of the doubt. This isn't directed at the OP at all FWIW
  9. The first justification after initial push-back always begins with these words.
  10. Hey Kiwi ... there is a video interview with Jennifer Peve of DTCC, where she describes the testing in some detail: http://www.dtcc.com/dtcc-connection/articles/2019/january/03/settling-equities-on-the-blockchain Paraphrasing/TLDW: For the testing, DTCC chose two private DLT platforms: R3|Corda Enterprise - https://www.r3.com/corda-enterprise/ Digital Asset|DA Platform - https://www.digitalasset.com/products Accenture managed the project and created two ring-fenced environments within DTCC's AWS Cloud environment.
  11. Hey Bull ... hope all is well ... Either the author has left out key information from a 'FIAT ILP connector' demonstration that might have been given, or he's alluding to another presentation that we know was given, and that Vanessa had been tweeting about. He mentions this tweet: By which we can see from the slides that this is a presentation of Kava Labs' Switch-API (unless I have this wrong?) https://github.com/Kava-Labs/switch There is nearly %100 chance that I'm missing something - so please point it out. Either way, seeing all of what has come out of that event over the weekend has been a real treat, and I can't wait to see some video. Needing to brush up on Strata Labs. -- h/t @jn_r @RareData https://twitter.com/strata_labs https://www.stratalabs.io/mainnet
  12. Fair enough, in that 'administration' typically refers to the Executive Branch, of which: "Including members of the armed forces, the Executive Branch employs more than 4 million Americans." So talks could really be with anybody from any of the departments that make up the Cabinet. https://www.whitehouse.gov/about-the-white-house/the-executive-branch/ My point is that this topic is usually presented as 'Ripple talks to White House' when, in fact, we have no idea how high up the chain talks have gone. Again, from the source article I posted: BreakerMag: "How high up in the administration have you gone, as far as talks go?" Cory: "...we haven’t said who we’ve talked to. But we’re in regular talks throughout Washington, and we meet with regulators as well as politicians." Giving credit to Solomon Magawi, he never makes the claim that there are direct talks with the White House - and his entire article is based on the BreakerMag piece, which does mention the White House - I was making a separate point really, which is sort of splitting hairs, and is now interfering with my Sunday drinking ... so I'm off .. cheers!
