  1. The Artificially Intelligent Blockchain - wondrous tech-fusion or frankenstein in the making?
  2. Blockchain Decentralization - epitome of democracy or ultimate illusion?
  3. The shadow of Quantum Computing on the Cryptosphere - are we sufficiently prepared?
  4. Thanks for sharing, this is very interesting. Does this mean that we could potentially have different ledgers (gaming, logistics, securitisation, etc) that are built on Ripple tech and they would all be able to use XRP natively i.e. XRPs can flow across all of these ledgers seamlessly with minimal (if any at all) integration effort needed?

    Hi! I'm Bob

    Thanks for all your generous, insightful and balanced sharing! I have learned a lot from all your posts, to say the least! I did a little search regarding the intriguing patented method that you were alluding to in the above post, might it be amongst the following? http://www.freepatentsonline.com/result.html?p=1&edit_alert=&srch=xprtsrch&query_txt=IN%2F(Way+AND+Robert)&uspat=on&usapp=on&eupat=on&jp=on&pct=on&depat=on&date_range=all&stemming=on&sort=relevance&search=Search 1. 10187368 Resource transfer setup and verification Systems and techniques are provided for a resource transfer setup and verification.

  6. To those who are using Coinbase and are transferring XRP there, please pay special attention to the fact that the destination tag changes every time you click on Receive XRP. In the event you send your XRPs there using any previously generated destination tags, it is likely that they will no longer be accessible. Had I not checked the details thrice-over, I would have used in a subsequent transfer the previous destination tag from a prior transaction.
  7. Brought a tear or two to my old eyes! **spoiler warning** The part where the mothership appears was particularly moving... **/spoiler warning*
  8. I think the XRP movement that xrparcade was referring to happened in the account rLkMJhSVwhmummLjJPVrwQRZZYiYQhVQ1A and not the other 3 large holdings.
  9. Might his entire lot of XRPs have been sold OTC to institutions (money-makers, FIs, etc) who are in acquisition mode?
  10. Don't need to be touchy. Let's look at the facts: a. The domain name was registered a few weeks ago: Raw WHOIS Record (https://whois.icann.org/en/lookup?name=tr0lly.com) Domain Name: TR0LLY.COM Registry Domain ID: 2349102734_DOMAIN_COM-VRSN Registrar WHOIS Server: whois.tucows.com Registrar URL: http://tucowsdomains.com Updated Date: 2019-01-04T10:33:09 Creation Date: 2019-01-02T16:34:18 b. The web-site doesn't have a proper SSL/TLS certificate set up on its server. The certificate being used is meant for the domain *.serveriai.lt c. The article is based on wild unproven allegations and many other forum members have already pointed that the allegations have been disproved by verifiable sources d. After this hoohah, instead of acknowledging the error of your ways, you lambasted those who pointed out the unwarranted biases in the linked article There is a significant difference between people who provide blind support and those who give legitimate support for proven facts, and I believe the majority of the members on this forum are intelligent and reasonable individuals belonging to the latter.
  11. You might just single-handedly bring up the national average weight in Venezuela by 50% with your move there.
  12. Investing is almost always a test of the investor's patience. Most people (myself included) buy too late and sell too soon. We are held back by fear and tempted by greed. When the dust settles, we usually see things more clearly but when the horses are kicking up sand, we get all excited by the euphoria and enthralled by the numbers. Where XRP is concerned, I am not too worried because the fundamentals look sound. Is there a chance it could go to zero? Sure! But given all the resources that are going into building the network and laying the infrastructure, I personally believe it is merely a matter of time (hopefully not a century) that the markets accord it a price that better reflects the potential of the asset. DYOR!
  13. Cryptocurrencies are a high-risk high-reward arena. You need guts of steel to survive the roller-coaster rides of emotions, and plenty of barf bags too. Hopefully you did not invest more than what you can comfortably forgo. If you are still HODLing, you definitely deserve any moonshots that come in future. And I'm speaking for myself - liquidating my positions at this point in time would not make sense, what with double-digit percentage paper losses; the upside of the situation? I can now survive a crazy ride up to $100 per XRP without flinching too.
  14. The keywords are "all within their network". The major correspondent banks in the SWIFT network have had their way for a long time and much as the bulk of the smaller (but still important) banks have wanted to break away, there hasn't really been a feasible alternative. Disconnecting from SWIFT meant financial isolation and that is fatal to any bank that wants customers from all the different geographies. The advent of RippleNet has created a viable alternative. What seemed like a pipe dream not too long ago is now gaining traction at a rate that is of significant concern to the primary SWIFT beneficiaries (HSBC, Citi, and the like). Sure, HSBC (or Citi) could always create its own blockchain and its own network, but having been bitten before and still smarting from that pain, would any of the disgruntled lower-tier banks want to jump out of the pan and into the fire? Blockchain promises a transformation of the financial industry in ways that may not even be imaginable and I believe that the last thing that any of these SWIFT members wish to do is to get shackled to the traditional big-boys again in the new wave of fintech innovations.
