  1. This will certainly stimulate the market over in France: https://www.theblockcrypto.com/linked/39518/france-will-not-tax-crypto-to-crypto-trades-will-tax-gains-converted-into-traditional-currency/ pointed to this by: @XRPcryptowolf
  2. https://www.msn.com/en-us/money/markets/tiny-pacific-nation-is-making-a-go-of-its-own-digital-currency/ar-AAH9f1K “With the blockchain technology in place, we thought this was an opportune time to establish our own legal tender” and lessen the nation’s dependence on the dollar, Paul said in an interview from the sidelines of the conference. “As a small country it’s going to be easier and faster for us to make decisions and respond to the market” as a digital coin is introduced."
  3. Wow, part 2 is excellent. She asked the right questions and Brad put to rest much of the FUD.
  4. That's the video—thank you. Grand conspiracy or not, there is a lot going on behind the curtain. We all sit from a perspective of speculation, but there sure are a lot of coincidences when you look for them.
  5. I like this part: " The other important requirement of government action, if the transition to the new order is to be successful, is that all the required liberties be conceded at once, and no timid attempt be made to introduce the new order gradually . . . " This approach has been speculated on many times via the imposed buy and sell walls for XRP at, for example $50 (Shane Elles Theory, I believe). There is also a video of a man in charge of one of the world's largest financial centers talking about turning things on all at once. Don't have time to find links for either of these at the moment. Fun for speculation.
  6. They wouldn't need R3's Corda if it did. So, no! It's much more logical to assume that it accelerates its use.

Today’s announcement complements the company’s formidable capabilities by providing access to R3’s Corda ecosystem, which includes more than 300 of the world’s leading financial services firms, technology companies, central banks, regulators and trade associations."

"The majority of Ripple’s clients are using the company’s payment messaging system xCurrent to power payments. But Light says he believes the company’s XRP-based solution xRapid will increasingly be adopted as companies and regulators become more comfortable with the emerging technology."

  10. They are not impressed with Libra or Facebook.
  11. That is a great video. Thanks for the link. So many possibilities playing out.
  12. Yeah my bad if it's old. I did see some scattered discussion on this forum, but it looked like it didn't pan out back in 2014, so I assumed that the earlier discussions were just too preliminary and that it has finally come to fruition here in 2019. My apologies if it's old news.

  14. FUD is out in full force lately. Something must be up.
  15. Kevin Cage did a video today reminding me of this interview of Miguel Vias from March of 2017. Start listening at 54:30. Fascinating how things are shaping up:
