    NightJanitor got a reaction from Frisia in PNC Bank is Going Live with XCurrent   
    Ok, let's give you the KaKa test.ย  Tell me if you think this is or is not a fair re-write of what you wrote, above:
    "Sure. this is a big deal, I mean, a veritable ****-ton of money we're talking about, BUT nobody was even thinking about or actively looking for a solution that'd unlock all that value until Ripple told them that they could do it.ย  Newton should have just kept quiet about gravity, too, but the big stinker wrote about the experience and even sent letters - which really ticks me off, being the non-jealous type that I am.ย  I mean, don't get me wrong, I hope XRP's price rises because I maybe own some, but I don't think it'll be easy.ย  Also, either I don't understand - at all - the benefits of a settlement asset - even though I keep talking like I do - or I bought the FUD lie that there is zero reason to use xRapid, over xCurrent - and I'm mad that people accuse me of spreading FUD, whenever I delve into topics and talk like I know what I'm talking about regarding msging v settlement.ย  Also, even if I grant you all of the above, well, it won't happen fast enough to satisfy me - it'll probably be gradual and force me to wait hours or something before I get RICH!"
    That's a quick take of what I heard you saying... Maybe you'll find the KaKa test, itself, partially curative...

    What really screwed him up, was he was part of a group forced to clean up after Nagasaki. That was the breaking point. Apparently when I was born he was on his death bed, and in a coma, but he saw me held up by my mother and he shed a tear.ย 
    Why mention that.. such things maketh a man .Apart from the genetic connection, and the sob tale, I am also a hard man and trauma has also found me. To all the FUDsters, I am born of hell and sometimes live it, but I like XRP. XRP is something that makes me feel optimistic about the future in a financial sense. We are very, very lucky (even if XRP goes to zero) in that the defining moment of our lives is whether or not an investment goes up or down, rather than crispy corpses and oppression.ย

    NightJanitor reacted to Zedy44 in LBA discussion   
    I agree @NightJanitorย it is difficult to understand what benefit the LBA token holds to Cred given you can lend without it, but lending with it provides much higher rates of return.ย 
    Maybe it's due to some underlying mechanic of regulation around lending services which need to collateralize the value partially against a 3rd party.ย  In other words...if people purchase and stake LBA it inherently proves LBA is an asset withย value and the millions of LBA that Cred sits on then appear to be fungible assets they hold.ย  This in turn allows Cred to borrow against their LBA holdings and the initial lenders are paid back through a much larger investment made on behalf of Cred.ย  I'm not sure if any of what I'm saying makes sense, but there has to be some kind of angle for Cred to create value from the LBA they hold.ย  Either they can sell it (a-la XRP) and bring value through dollars or they can somehow collateralize it bring value through borrowed dollars.
    I mean 10% APR doesn't just come out of thin air.ย  Whatever they are doing is certainly higher risk.ย  They do claim they never use borrowed assets to short, but other than that it's kind of a mystery right now.ย  I find a little comfort in Arrington Capital giving some approval to their operation, but I wouldn't go and roll all my assets into them without knowing a lot more about how the whole system they've built really works.ย  This goes for really any of these lending services with higher single digit / double digit APR interest payments involving crypto.

    Well, I'll repeat what I can remember of an old Sir John Lubbock line:ย  "The only cure for speculative madness is pain."
    I'm not sure, though, that it's wise to look only at XRP in trying to determine "how much pain is enough" or whether or not the relationship between "duration" and "intensity" may matter, as well - it's been down for quite a while - and, as far as looking at XRP, only, in a vacuum, if you will, then I think there it may be wise to consider that there is still a lot of crap out there that *really* needs to feel pain - projects where even the people who began or run them will openly say "yeah, it's dead" and yet they live on, zombie-like, or, for an other matter, projects where entrenched interests may have an incentive to pump still yet more liquid into dead ends, if only to float themselves out - while drowning the buyers.
    This strikes me as more of a technical/trading discussion - and I try not to engage in that, as that's not my business...
    Still, the Lubbock line came to mind, and I've already written this, so I may as well press the button and see it through.
