  1. I am from Austria and went to the same highschool as Sebastian Kurz (it is a small country). Neverteheless I would never ever vote for him and really dont like his politics. As most of you are not aware of Austrian politics. It is 99% certain that he will be chancellor again after the next election in 6 weeks. Anyhow: It's kind of funny how close Brad is to the political Leaders of Europe. Kurz is more importand in the EU than one would think. Still i dont like him.
  2. So what? If the price of XRP will be $10 in 2030 it will be - by far - the best investment I've ever made. I am very certain that XRP will be a success. Nevertheless I only invested what I can afford to lose.
  3. @Lumpy Ok I get what you are saying. Anyway, the number of “transactions” has doubled in the last weeks. Is there any guess what the reason for that could be?
  4. I recently discovered that the number of transactions on the ledger has increased significantly in the last few weeks. from arround 5-600k/day to almost 1,2 mil/day in the last few days. The ledger now handles significantly more transactions than ETH or BTC Am I right with my assumption that this shows implementation of xrapid in real-life-use?
  5. I think the same. I am 99% certain that XRP will be +10$ sometime in the future. But i have no clue if we will pass 10$ in 2 Months, 2 Years or a Decade from now.
  6. Great news for Iranians. I have been to Iran two times. (I am European, but have friends in Iran) I remember that it was a pain to bring money to the Iran. There are ATMs in Iran but it´s a closed system not connected to SWIFT or SEPA. I ended up bringing almoust 5k Euro in cash with me. But that’s an even bigger problem for Iraniens. Iranians (unlike Saudis or Chinese) get passports and are allowed to travel as much as they want. So they do travel a lot and for that they have bank-accounts in Europe to have cach, ATM-cards and credit-cards to use in the rest of the world. I assume XRP is a very good way to move money fast and cheap from rial to euros. PS: I am European so I don’t care about any embargo from the USA. Actually my country (Austria) is (and was always) doing business with Iran.
  7. Kinda funny. I am living in Vienna just 10 min away from Transpaygos headquater. I recently noticed that one of the 15 non ripple validators on the defalt UNL is located in Vienna and was wondering, what the reason could be. Now it makes sense. I have to admit that TranspayGo isn't known widely in Austria. But maybe that's because they are not targeting retail customers.
  8. That is only true if you just look at XRP against the dollar. In my opinion one of the next goals for XRP is to become 2nd biggest Cryptocurrency in terms of marketcap (I know that marketcap does not mean that much but it is importand for the public). So XRP has to overtake ETH to be the first contender of BTC. In the last month XRP has gained 20% against ETH, 40% in the last 3 months and more than 90% in the last 12 months. So at this point of time XRP is doing good within the crypto-space. Gains against the $ (that are not only driven by speculation) will come into play in maybe the next 18 months
  9. Ripple stated that the Ledger handles 1500 Transactions at the Moment. And that it will handle 50.000 TX/sec in the future. That would bei all of Swifts transactions in 7 minutes
  10. Imho: The goal for the next 6 months should be to become Nr.1 alt-coin. In other words: overtake in ETH in marketcap (I know that marketccap doesn’t mean a lot but it´s importent for the public reception) So I it is also important how XRP is doing against ETH. And recently the XRP/ETH Charts look promising
  11. From my European perspective I can not understand the backlash. Bill Clinton was (and somehow still is) popular in Europe. In my opinion the message is clear. It is: Ripple is a legitimate company so that Clinton (how has ties with Banking Industry) is eager to hold a keynot for this company. Sure Obama would have been a eaven better choice – maybe next year.
  12. As far as I know he is Austrian (but has studied in Germany and lived in Switzerland). So his mother tounge is definitely german.
  13. If BTC goes down to sub 2000 the whole System will collapse as miners will stop mining. I am not saying that it could not happen. but I think that it is quite unlikely. I would say that BTC has now reached its "intrinsic value" which is the cost of energy needed to mine one BTC. Do you hold any XRP at the Moment? I dont think we see single figures ever again. But It is quit possible, that it will take some years till we see +$1 year.
  14. That is exactly the situation I am in. I bought early before Nov/17 so I have no loss. But I missed selling at the ATH. Thought about selling 10-20% of my stack. But didn’t do it. I didn't expect going so low. Now it is to late to sell imho. The odds are way better that XRP will be higher in 6 Months than being lower. I am quite sure that (if Ripple is successful) we will see a new ATH. Although it might need some patients. Even if XRP takes 5 years to reach the next ATH the Return on my investment will be tremendous.
