    NightJanitor reacted to VoteForTomorrow in XRPayments   
    Wietsewind has just announced the approval of XRPayments by Google and Apple.  I guess XRP really will be a currency in it's own right soon.

    There are a few Twitter accounts I follow. The annoying thing is sometimes they post OLD news as well as NEW news, and the worst of them sprinkle in rightwing conspiracy theories about planned economic collapse and the satanic liberal deep state (ugh). There's good info if you dig through the garbage.
    twitter.com/BankXRP tends to be pretty good
    twitter.com/Fame21Moore more out there but sometimes interesting

    I just announced a new project that I hope will educate more people than me just trying to write a book. I hope everyone will take a look at my announcement, and if you are interested in helping out please send me an email. As we develop new material, I'll be posting it here in the club for open discussion.

    NightJanitor reacted to mDuo13 in Ripple Dev Blog Has Moved   
    The Ripple Dev Blog has moved. The new blog location has been inaugurated with a feature article about Interledger, and we plan to continue posting new blog articles at a higher rate than we previously have. *crosses fingers*
    Check out that Interledger article here: https://developers.ripple.com/blog/2019/interledger-checkin.html
    If you have any technical topics you'd like us to cover or other things you'd like to see from the Ripple Dev Blog, feel free to reply here and we'll do what we can to address them. (As usual, we cannot provide financial advice, forecast moon when the price of XRP, reveal confidential info about partners, comment on litigation, etc.) We can and are happy to talk about open source technology, the XRP Ledger's many features and potential uses, and provide insight into where Ripple's devs see fintech going in general over the next few years.

    NightJanitor got a reaction from zerpdigger in Trump 'Lucky' to Inherit Strong Economy, Gene Sperling Says   
    Here's the article he wrote:  https://democracyjournal.org/magazine/52/economic-dignity/
    I haven't processed it (stopped when he invoked Kant, as I knew then I'd have to read it all.)
    I do wonder whether he wrote the subheading, that "allowing people to lead dignified lives."
    Seems a little bit undignified... but I'll reserve judgment until after I've read the whole thing.

    NightJanitor got a reaction from hallwaymonitor in SWIFT: Copying Ripple since 2014   
    That sounds like an engineering person has just discovered that there are not only a couple of big gatekeepers making money on fees, but also people making money on float.
    Don't take that the wrong way - it's an important insight to have - and it's not the first time anyone (even on this forum) has made that realization (I remember an old metaphor running around, maybe even by you?, about "the market for float") - and just because there are incumbents and it's not a "greenfield" - it's not insurmountable - as an obstacle - indeed, it's one of those "this giant inefficiency = huge opportunity" types of things...  Always good to see people re-realizing stuff like that;  that's the key to iterating solutions.

    Never thought about this, but I wonder if time zones create some legal issues because in some jurisdictions (like the US?) Banks, Exchanges, and others have to "settle" net-trades/flow by midnight... or whatever it is, there is always a time limit.
    Taking this "time limit" towards real time, will surely have ramifications for many periodic financial services.

    NightJanitor reacted to ChazzCoin in Chat: New Ideas for the XRP Ledger - Formerly "Most of you are amazed at what Ripple is doing, but you are looking at it wrong."   
    @BobWayI was discussing with my brother last night that I see a wallet with the ability to transfer value like venmo/satoshipay  "@ChazzCoin" and also using the same wallet to pay for things via NFC as you are saying. This is so absolutely key as everything in our lives are moving to our phones in the future. Samsung Pay has pretty much eliminated the use of my physical cards, I merely use them out of habit now.
    I am trying my best to learn how to integrate with the ILP and Coil. I would love to incorporate other amazing ideas like XRP Tip Bot into the wallet to allow users to tip each other. What an amazing social value of the future!!
    Any resources to help in my endeavors are always welcome!! I am still new to the development side of this but spending one night connecting up to the api/ledger successfully made me realize how simple this stuff really is in the end! I should have a native open source android wallet on the store in a couple of months! (at least thats my goal)
    Thanks again for everything!

    NightJanitor reacted to BobWay in Chat: New Ideas for the XRP Ledger - Formerly "Most of you are amazed at what Ripple is doing, but you are looking at it wrong."   
    Stay tuned. I'm trying to retool from non-stop question answering to more of a teaching and learning format. I'm going to start bouncing ideas here, probably tomorrow. I really want to work out how to do some hands on projects (like GDW) with the community. However, I work best in an interactive format when doing that. As opposed to just typing a bunch of text into posts.
    But I do have resources that I can connect you with. I know a guy who has been working on NFC passes. Turns our @APR on twitter is a good friend of mine. He wrote the open source credit card processing stack (jPOS) that is used in a huge number of your daily card transactions. Another friend and I built the first debit card integration with the card networks. We had our own debit cards that could spend anything in our Ripple wallet at any store around. I mostly bought cheeseburgers. That's why I'm currently on a diet.  Coil is of course working on ILP. I just happen to know them as well.
