  1. This asset is still amazing to me. Suck it up haters & enjoy your future regrets
  2. I do love her content. A sensible gem in the ocean of hype vids on yt
  3. just saw bob way in a you tube video (90114 - yllop) (1min31sec) so totally not ripple related but wishing everyone a happy 4th of July so good to see him looking well at least
  4. fair enough all that I can agree with. I think he'll turn up working on an xrp project some time but quiet for now which is fine.
  5. all the negative folks looking for the worst conspiracy bollocks. A person who wrote words we liked is doing something else (or something similar or more so they don't want to talk about) & we are supposed to feel like we're owed something? Er nope I don't follow that I'm a princess logic. I'm happy to do my own research & not think the worst just cause someone isn't summarising it for me. I still think the future is bright, you're welcome to disagree with that & call me an optimist or delusional but I'm not crying 'cause an internet identity didn't ask my permission for something or that the sky is falling because they didn't.
  6. that is a huge unknown as I can't recall anyone ever commenting on how much they had in n/v & how much that would normally last (plus if volumes have been lower with covid?) Plus the how traceable will small payments be if/when they return?
  7. Maybe I'm optimistic but it sounds and looks exactly what I would expect removal of n/v accounts to look like. Namely the big customer uses odl for a bit to top up such n/v aka "treasury" payments. Then after proving it works reliably with saving customer decides to apply it to the actual individual payments AFTER they have burned thru their n/v (or reduced to whatever level they are comfortable with) then volumes (if they're as easy to trace in small payments?) will return........ AKA this could be all the things you mention. So suck up that negativity soldier & have a warm glass of optimism sponsored by me
  8. is btc secretly tommen baratheon in this analogy?
  9. jesus lots of fud haters here, must mean it's time for a rerun of er whatever season 2017 was. lol
  10. I will still pea myself laughing if this is just how it happens going from topping up n/v accounts to the actual individual payments (where the drop off is the n/v getting used up) as it is the holy land of what Ripple have targeted & we have been seeking for years but here we are all shitting our pants.....
  11. I'll say again how does a happy customer who was using it to top up their nostro/vostro accounts switch to killing the n/v & using it for actual as needed payments on odl? First they have to use up their n/v funds which would in the short term mean a drop in any previously increasing odl use, after n/v used up volumes will return but in smaller individual size. Simples
  12. Much discussion about this following ripples Asheesh Birla's tweet about this yesterday. See "Staying the course in remittances and SME payments" thread in the press section.
  13. I've been thinking about this all day & although it could just be my delusional optimism could it not also just be, as partly touched on above with the Schwartz tweets etc, that this is just switching from large top ups to keep the nostro/vostro's topped up AKA "treasury" & now they trust it works & are happy to use it directly for the smaller individual payments. If we're talking moneygram here then does that cover all the corridors which have now dropped? If the end goal/promise of removing the need for nostro/vostros is or could be happening now how would it be handled/processed? Eg if Moneygram has 1bn mexican peso's sat there to handle their business & now they have this new shiny ripplenet what do they do with the parked Peso's? Surely they wouldn't have any benefit in sending it back to usd so they would just use it & reduce it as they send payments out? Which would then at least in the short term mean a drop in odl use, as they hit their reduced holding level or decide to start processing the smaller payments through odl then volume comes back? This would at least explain why there might be a drop for now as the bit which troubled me was why would doing a little a lot should be less in total than doing a lot a little for the same customer?
