    We need to hammer home this point. Even some of the big Flare talking heads are doing a great job but missing this key point – and newbs to Flare need to be made aware that they are moving their funds to another (agent) wallet to initiate the f-asset conversion process.

    CountZerpula reacted to jargoman in XRP about to go parabolic   
    I choose coins according to technical analysis. In 2011 I was sick of losing money trying to value buy. I went to investopedia trading games and looked at the top 10 biggest gainer accounts. 9 out of 10 profiles chose momentum as trading strategy. the 10th chose buy and hold. 

    When I investigated the top account, to my shock he/she was trading constantly. 

    I decided to throw everything I knew out the window and go by momentum technical analysis. Instead of searching for investments, I searched google for charts. But every time I saw a chart that fit the signals for a momentum investment, it turned out to be bitcoin. Eventually I said, screw it, this chart is the best I've seen according to the theory, I told myself not to question the T.A and bought bitcoin at $10 for a long term hold. After Bitcoin saw massive gains I noticed that the ltc/btc chart was the same thing, showing that ltc would outperform bitcoin. Then to my shock, most alts outperformed btc. Then I came across XRP, everyone was saying it was a scam. But everytime I tried to investigate which coins banks were interested in using, the rabbit hole always led to XRP.

    Fast forward to today, the way I trade is I list all the coins by which ones are up and which ones are down. I have two reasons for this. The ones that are going up will stand out to me. I want to make a mental note of them. Out of the ones that are down I look for buy opportunities. I examine the chart of each for an entry point. I research market cap and utility. Then I search if it's a scam, then I buy. AFTER I buy, I figure out, what is it? what can I do with it? can I earn an apy? Will I need these in the future? Will I ever use these tokens? Is there a way to profit off of these? If it's a shit coin then I sell it for a profit and at least I was paid for researching the coin. If it's a gem then I got in at a good price and if it goes down I can average down. 

    I don't have to be correct all the time. Just disciplined and market aware. I use bots and I find ways to hedge my risk as best I can, which is hard in crypto. 

    Your idea of an exit plan is perfect though, I'm doing the same thing but each purchase is long, medium or short. I think maybe I make it seem easy when it's not but I've been doing it so long that I feel comfortable making trades based on analysis. What I do when things don't go as expected is really important as well. Usually just hold, or trade with a bot, or earn an apy and take a breather.

    From my understanding things are still in the very early/preliminary stages as they've only released an internal testnet to hammer out and fine tune the platform before a Pre-Alpha release. Crypto-News-Flash.com did a interview with the founder, Barney Mannerings, earlier this year regarding their collab with Xpring, now RippleX.

    CountZerpula reacted to WrathofKahneman in Austin King of Strata Labs departs from Ripple   
    Austin King, from the Strata Labs acquisition, worked on the ILP and co-authored PayString with @JoelKatz   I know there is much weeping and gnashing of teeth when Ripple employees depart, but his story provides good insight about why - and it has nothing to do with Ripple's prospects.  The short version is that he remains very bullish about Ripple but misses the small, creative milieu of running a startup; drawn to defi.  It's different working in a big company.  Blog definitely worth a read, if only to provide insight why people depart.

    CountZerpula got a reaction from BillyOckham in Flare Finance public Beta - TAKE TWO !!   
    Appreciate the sentiment @BillyOckham... I can only echo what I'd earlier mentioned about my experience around the project.
    As far as any red flags, or issues surrounding anonymity - that's something that each person will need to reckon with. As with anything else in life, if something seems off to you, either get up as close as you can to investigate, or steer clear and let someone else be the first one through the door  ... For my money, the anonymity was more of a curiosity than anything. It was known early on in the emergence of the project that they had revealed their identities to the Flare team and that, if Flare wanted to divulge that information, that they were free to do so at their discretion. Likewise, any member of the team who might choose to come forward is open to do so.
    The way I see it, this isn't the first instance of a project either initiating, or even operating under some measure of anonymity - from Team Rocket with Avalanche, to Satoshi with Bitcoin - it just wasn't an issue for me. How the team interacted with all of us in the earlier days of the project really impressed me - along the way they've been there for support during all of the beta testing and, from there, we'll all be able to see the results of the auditing once it's complete. That's good enough for me, and you can bet that I won't be putting one red cent on the line if I'm not totally comfortable - but I'm really happy with what I see every time I head over there. 
    People interested in the project went from a group of a few hundred people, to thousands of people very quickly, and, despite the inevitable chaos that comes with such a large group - Discord & Telegram can both be a mess -  all you ever see is one person after the next going out of their way to help somebody else, so definitely drop by if you're curious.

    Hey Tiny. Yeah, that Captcha bot was only just implemented as there was an influx of scammer bots, but glad you managed to pass the Black Knight.
    Regarding the FAQ, that is currently being re-worked and regarding the anonymity, there is some news in the pipeline that should ease some concerns. I’ve also had conversations with the founders recently which highlighted their dedication into the future and the new APY Cloud is like nothing else, which is tailored to weather market cycles - so long term rewards even through the bear markets.
    So all in all, definitely worth participating in the TestNet environment, just to get the swing of DeFi. And as time goes by, you can assess Flare Finance on merits and if you still have any concerns by the time FF launches, you could only risk your airdropped DFLR/YFLR to begin with.
    I’m pretty confident the founders may reveal their identity by launch, especially if it would increase platform volume.

    Hmm...  I dunno.   I am a bit uncomfortable with FF.  I just went to the discord link.  I don’t use discord so the whole UI seems a bit user-unfriendly to me but I tried anyway.  
     
    I get a captcha-bot that presents me with distorted text to type in proving my hue-manatee.
    My first go fails,  so I look closer and realise there was another letter lurking there.  Retry but fail again.  Cant see any alternate to what I typed,  but only have one attempt left.  No way to click ‘try another captcha’ or suchlike.  So that’s a bust.
    Ok, let’s look at the flare finance faq.  I get down to the part about we don’t want to reveal our identities so the powers that be won’t assassinate us...   and now I’m turned off the whole thing again.
    This is about the third time I’ve thought I should look into it,  but as soon as I do red flags jump up and dissuade me from proceeding.
     
    The ONLY reason I’m still slightly interested is because of @CountZerpula and @Flintstone and others here being participants.  They are smart and decent folk so it gives the thing more credence than I would assign it otherwise.

    This was one of the best, most detailed speakers I have seen on the subject of CBDC, especially within the US.
    If you can read between the lines on the technical features, this screams IoV, ILP, RippleNet & XRPL.
    Too many wonderfully astute points being made, that every minute is worth attention. Too many "at this minute, he is referencing... this part of the IoV" it's like a continuous stream.
    I'm pretty sure Educational folks, get either no NDA, or an "NDA lite".

    Are wrong … or maybe 'half-right' and 'half-wrong'. There are people who insist that it's dead, in that, it was a thing but is no longer a thing; based on misconstrued comments made by @JoelKatz ... In fact - an iteration of Codius had been deprecated alongside ongoing work on the ‘repurposed version’ (for lack of a better description)
    https://github.com/codius/codiusd/pull/157
    So, half-right in that regard. However, it's very much alive as many of you well know. The current state of development/usage is another matter, but the Interledger community calls have featured some great at-length discussion with @ahopebailie @wilsonianb @justmoon among others.

    (IIRC) the October one was my favorite, and is the one where Stefan mentions that there may be some sort of light event surrounding a proper relaunch. I think that would be a worthy RippleX livestream event – sort of a community call with the various dev teams of the larger XRP ecosystem, talking about developments around  Open Payments, Web Monetization, ILP, Codius etc. Perhaps @hammertoe might agree 
    Looking ahead, and while keeping an eye on the same things as everyone else here has mentioned, I’ve been intrigued by how Codius might be used with Hooks as @Wietse points out here

    Seems that if people deployed Codius as part of a distributed smart oracle network that could feed data to Hooks, perhaps that same data could simultaneously be used to contribute to Flare @FTSO data? Definitely fun to watch it all unfold.
