  1. Here's what you need to know about XLM. Everything that morons accused XRP of, being controlled by the owners and highly manipulated by them, is true if you hold XLM. Jed can singlehandedly walk off with your money. He can get bored with the project and kill it. There is no corporate structure behind XLM that is working with regulators like XRP and Ripple have. People who touted XLM as the anti-XRP are some of the biggest morons in crypto. The only good thing I've seen that XLM has are the inflation pools where you earn small amounts of XLM for holding XLM. Short of that, you're buying a coin that a guy who has f'd people over several times in crypto controls. Why is that a good investment? They've been linked to IBM for awhile now and IBM isn't doing jack with XLM. And where's that mythical exchange from IBM that is all backed by XLM? XLM should be called Jed Coin.
  2. I believe it will. But it's going to fight like a cornered animal first before it lets us pass it.
  3. It also pains me to see people panting over Swell like it's the moon shot with no end. XRP moved to .42 at Swell last year mostly on The Gates Foundation news and then promptly dropped as low as .16 I recall before sitting at .24 forever. This place and Reddit were filled with posts for months about how Ripple was holding the price at .24 and how you had to get out of this "shitcoin" That it would never be more than .24 ever. Then in December, we had our moon before the bear market brought everything down with a thud. Point being if you're frothing around on the internet about Swell, please stop. It's a conference. It's not where Brad rises up through a hole in a stage while fog machines create a cloud-like effect and screams "I AM BEARABLE GUY! 589 BEGINS NOW!!!!". Enough with the hype -- this year should have proven to you that hype is a con. We want utility and usage and volume. Not some spike from a rumored announcement.
  4. He came off really poorly if you ask me. Just seemed to be trolling really and protecting his product which crypto essentially kills. If I send someone $1000 worth of XRP to India it's cheaper and faster than anything Paypal will offer. Consider the source. The guy looks like he knows the future is coming. If Paypal were smart they'd work with XRP to speed things up and bring down costs globally.
  5. Okay. This makes sense to me. I wonder what that catalyst will be. I mean, this isn't just XRP -- the whole market is depressed. I have friends who bought in heavy on ETH at $700 who are devastated.
  6. ...wouldn't they want the market to pump again so they can draw in newbie investors again and take their money at the top? I constantly see everyone claiming someone is manipulating the crypto market to drive it down -- that makes no sense to me. Crashing it down like this makes investing in it dangerous. What would make sense is keep attracting new money in by letting it quickly recover from the bear markets and pump higher than before so people FOMO and throw their life savings into it so whales can take it from them. What would anyone gain from sending the prices back down to levels from 12 months ago? All it's done is allow crypto to become this thing that people are more afraid of investing in than ever. I'm not buying this is just some "whales" messing with us. Thoughts?
  7. They are rolling them out slowly, but if you go online you can see there's a place to deposit $US -- it's just not an active button yet. Yet, being the key word in the sentence. It's coming very soon. I think they are starting it out with business accounts and then rolling it out to personal ones.
  8. Once Bittrex opens up US dollar cash deposits for me I will delete Coinbase and never go there again. It's got a nice user interface for newbies, but outside of that it's being lapped by the competition. The whole Coinbase is going to send XRP to the moon routine is old hat now. Market has moved on in huge ways.
  9. Remember last year when people would incessantly whine that Ripple was controlling the price at .24 and it wasn't allowed to move? I mean, we've tripled since then and seen a ridiculous ATH in Dec/January. That .24 whining went on for many months. I just keep on holding. I'm up.
  10. You want Kutcher and Oseary in on XRP. Oh, God do you want them in on it. This is a very good sign for the future. Ignore the price. Load up while you still can.
  11. The fact that US Credit Card providers have banned crypto purchases killed some of the market as well. People liked the instant purchase. They don't want to take a few days to fund a crypto account and have their money sit there. Especially, the more emotional buyers. It was a complete impulse buy this time last year for many. I know I didn't keep money on an exchange, but when Bitstamp opened up credit card purchases I was buying every XRP dip I could. Now I'm more pragmatic about it. Yes, you can buy instant with a debit card, but I think some people were enjoying buying on credit and then paying it off at the end of the month instead of the money being taken from your account immediately. That said, I'm not giving up on $5. I think the moves are slowly happening to enable people instant XRP purchases that make buying BTC and ETH as a gateway coin irrelevant for the average investor.
  12. I don't know, I've gotten quite liquid based on what my XRP's were worth this time last year.
  13. And you know this how? Little green men told you? A throaty owl? You heard it whispering through the wind? You know nothing. Admit that and then you can begin to have a conversation with the adults here.
