  1. Two examples where that has not been the case were the escrow announcement and the initial Western Union news. Both times XRP broke ranks. Now it is simply in lockstep with BTC and I see no way to break free other than a blow-the-roof off partnership.
  2. The key is a breakaway from Bitcoin - without that $3 would be a miracle (again).
  3. To hell with the banks - they have been milking it far too long.
  4. Brad didn't get on the plane this time...however, he has a new pet phrase "lean-in" Cory is learning the ropes and I think he has a great understanding of the Ripple ecosystem. Faux-pas will happen now and again. No big deal.
  5. Interesting take on matters. It feels like pressure is building - I would think by now most of the weaker hands have been shaken out and the die-hard hodlers are standing fast.
  6. Logic and crypto are hardly ever seen in the same sentence in this ridiculous mess.
  7. I have a crazy theory about this: the whale was drunk and fat-fingered it. The market was around .94 when it happened. Well, just a thought....
  8. Hodor, all they need to do in this circus is manipulate one coin (BTC) and the rest will follow. A 'market' begging for abuse, don't you think?
  9. Maybe, just maybe now - every comment on here is not specifically about you.
  10. That is a great point - I believe it is because burying yourself in ridiculous abstruse minutiae - the more complicated looking the better, is far more satisfying than simply saying "I don't know" - or even worse "It's out of my hands"
  11. There never was or is a 'level playing field' - nothing unnerves the rich more than the thought of ordinary people making a profit - they want it all and will destroy everything for another dime. I do believe that if opposition from the 'important' people was to take form, crypto would be gone in a heartbeat.
  12. Ah, true to form - the Great Vampire Squid smells money and will thrust its blood snout into anything it finds that might enrich its C-suite.
  13. Well, the courts have not responded to the change in technology regarding 'arms' and there appears to be no revising of the highly destructive and anachronistic 2nd Amendment. Whether they take the same stance in the financial arena remains to be seen. However, if the banks, who essentially own the US, decide that crypto has to go as it is a threat to their obscene profits, stand back.
  14. Well, if XRP gets to something significant, they may decrease the reserve. Or maybe not. That 20XRP might be the difference between my little Jimmy being able to go to Harberd or not....
  15. Question for 'gatehub' - if I close my account out, can I recover my initial 20xrp wallet stake?
  16. He has a vested interest in Bitcoin, having written a book that clearly is a booster for it. the NY Times is doing a disservice to its readers allowing him to write about crypto.
  17. Plennie Wingo - a real individual who actually walked backwards from Santa Monica to Istanbul. Seems that in an age with far too few real characters he should never be forgotten.
  18. Well, there has been more chatter recently by Ripple execs about supporting the success of XRP. It comes down to if the banks want to kill crypto, the US government will make that happen. Democracy in the US is the great nonsense word - it only matter what the rich want now.
  19. I also sense the skulking presence of the Winklevoss twins. The fun never ends with those two.
  20. Their vetting process has gotten much faster - also, in my case, they answer support e-mails right away. Not a small thing in this the Dark Age of 'customer service'
  21. Just the kind of thing that Bitcoin shill Popper would latch on to. The Times editors need to be made aware of Popper's agenda.
