  9. In this, my first community blog post, I tell a story of the early days of the internet of information, hows things developed and make some comparisons to the current situation, including my views and a comparison between Ripple and Cisco. It's a true story. I hope you enjoy. https://xrpcommunity.blog/ripple-will-be-the-cisco-systems-for-the-internet-of-value-a-k-a-memoirs-of-young-network-engineer-circa-1986/ Also, big thanks to Hodor and Pablo for their help with reviewing my early revisions..

    InstaReM (RippleNet Member) Launches in the UK

    As they send payments to 60 countries, let's hope their really looking for the cost-effective option.
  14. I'm not a derivatives expert by any means, but above I was thinking of the contracts themselves, forwards, futures, options could all be "simple" smart contracts, bought and sold as they are now, actioned by codius at the expiration. All possible I would think, assuming trust was assured. Swaps as i ( very basically) understand them, might require a different setup. but im sure they run as code now, so could be programmed. The derivative assets themselves could eventually be on any blockchain, with ILP as the bridge, Codius being a transaction handler, XRP being the settlement asset.
  15. interesting watch.. Mayur Kapani references trading volumes on the Intercontinental exchanges at billions of usd per second, a small slice of that into derivative codius contracts would be nice.
