  1. Care to state what those reasons are?
  2. That is not the correct quote. The correct quote is: At Swell, Santander Head of Innovation Ed Metzger said the bank’s vision in the integration of Ripple is to utilize xCurrent, Ripple’s enterprise blockchain, to improve the lives of its customers. As you can see from the correct quote I posted above, XRP is not mentioned at all. Santander's One Pay FX service currently uses xCurrent, not XRP.
  3. Why do you view EOS as a worthless token?

    Take your profit

    @Crypto_Knight What is your opinion on the Bitcoin ETF decision being made by the SEC tomorrow? Do you think the SEC will approve the Bitcoin ETF or decline it?
  5. The CEO of SBI Holdings did not say he expects XRP to reach $10 by the end of the year. All he did was retweet an article that predicted XRP will reach $10 by the end of 2018.
  6. I'm in the same boat. I'm in the red with my XRP investment. I could buy much more XRP this very minute and bring my average cost down to $0.46, but I won't. I already own quite a substantial amount of XRP and will be holding for at least 10 years or until XRP reaches $300+.

    Ledger Live

    The Ledger Live application contains far too many bugs. Clearly the application was not tested thoroughly by Ledger before releasing it to the public. I'm getting the following error message when I try and add my XRP account: "Something went wrong during synchronization. Please try again." Apparently I am getting this error because my XRP wallet address has a ALV token trustline assigned to it. There are several other issues I have also encountered. The application is not fit for use in its current state.

    Word of caution. Stolen funds

    I believe the possibility of that happening on my phone is non existent as my Android phone is not rooted. The hacker will also need to have physical access to my phone and will also need my phone's unlock PIN code. The hacker will also need my account username and extremely long and very complicated log in password which I do not store on my phone.

    Word of caution. Stolen funds

    So how did the hacker gain access to your account if you had 2-step authentication enabled? In my Kraken trading account, I have 2-step authentication turned on for everything (for logging in, trading, depositing funds, withdrawing funds, etc). I also have the settings in my Kraken trading account locked. So even if a hacker somehow managed to log in to my account, the hacker would need a master code to unlock my locked settings. Every section (trading, funds, settings, etc) in my Kraken trading account has its own individual 2-step code. All four 2-step authentication codes for my Kraken account change every 30 seconds. Also, I do not keep any cryptocurrencies I purchase on any exchanges and I only use a Ledger Nano S hardware wallet to access the cryptos in my wallet addresses. I never expose my private keys. I either use my ledger Nano S or sign all my crypto transactions on a permanently offline computer.

    Word of caution. Stolen funds

    Was you receiving your 2FA codes by text message? I have 2-step authentication enabled on all my email addresses and crypto trading accounts and I only use the Google Authenticator app (the required 6 digit 2-step authentication code will change to a different code every 30 seconds). Unless a hacker has physical access to my smartphone, they have no chance of getting into any of my trading accounts.

    The new XRP symbol is horrible

    The new XRP symbol is horrible

    I like the new XRP symbol. It has a nice futuristic tech look.
  13. I'm looking forward to the launch of the SBI Virtual Currencies Exchange and seeing if they have a considerable impact on the price of XRP. I don't think they will, but who knows. I have always viewed XRP as a long-term investment and never expected the price of a single XRP to gain a much higher trading price valuation in the short term. It's going to take a tremendous amount of volume to get the price of XRP to the high price points I see many individuals mentioning all over this forum and elsewhere and I do not see that happening without some serious level of adoption which could potentially take a very long time to happen. I will hold my main stash of XRP until the price hits at least 500+ U.S. dollars. I don't care about making little money from my investments. All I care about is making the type of money that enables me to never have to work again (so I'm after the millions). I will reassess my investment in XRP in the next 5 - 7 years. And if by then the price of XRP has not reached 500+ U.S. dollars, only then would I sell all my XRP.
  14. I think the price of a single XRP token will be $0.70 to $2 U.S. dollars at the end of this year. It's going to be very interesting to see if the SBI Virtual Currencies Exchange (which should launch this summer) has any impact on the price of XRP.
