  1. Not sure what your point is. It's clear Standard Chartered is invested in Ripple. Being invested in Metaco does not negate Ripple. The former is custody, the latter transfer of value. Transfer of value is done with XRP.
  2. ..."Over the years, Standard Chartered has been romancing the crypto space. The firm, in 2016, announced investing in Ripple Labs Inc., the firm behind XRP token, and some massively adopted remittance payment solutions. During the investment announcement, Standard Chartered declared that it made the decision to work speedily towards the realization of its digitization agenda in the distributed ledger technology space, where Ripple performs a pivotal role. Standard Chartered Bank made the investment to get opened to new initiatives that will add value to the banking industry and its clients. Since then, the bank has been making use of the RippleNet solution. Mid 2018, the bank said it would expand its use of RippleNet to five more countries for easy fund movement. The bank, before making that decision, began with Singapore and India corridor and launched the solution in partnership with Axis Bank, another Ripple customer."
  3. https://occ.gov/news-issuances/news-releases/2020/nr-occ-2020-98.html credit to XRPDarren @Fame21Moore for pointing me to this article "From safe-deposit boxes to virtual vaults, we must ensure banks can meet the financial services needs of their customers today," said Acting Comptroller of the Currency Brian P. Brooks. "This opinion clarifies that banks can continue satisfying their customers' needs for safeguarding their most valuable assets, which today for tens of millions of Americans includes cryptocurrency."
  4. Windows from DOS moment. Crypto desperately needed this.
  5. Is that a real ripple web site address? It doesn't look legitimate to me with the .bz address. I don't see any sign of this on the Ripple.com web site.
  6. "Aside from moving XRP into Sygnum custody account, users can also improve fiat liquidity with lombard loan against XRP."
  7. His identifier is "Let Her Rip". That's a pretty big hint! I wouldn't take him too seriously.
  8. You've probably heard the rumor about Ripple buying R3 (probably false, but . . . ). Now combine that idea with this news and it makes even more sense for Ripple to buy R3. The two combined would likely be the nail in the coffin for SWIFT.
  9. Time is running short not only to innovate but to consolidate technologies because of the current Covid19 and financial crisis pressing the need. Think of JP Morgan as a potential competitor to R3, both having a consortium of banks. If you think of it that way and the intense competition involved you can see the potential for mergers or buyouts. Just like we've already seen with Visa and MasterCard purchasing companies at a premium to help their placement in this emerging financial world, might we start seeing the same with companies like R3, JP Morgan, even Facebook?
  10. What an amazing move it would be by Ripple to do so. It goes without saying that people should do their own research. However, speculation is very much part of this and every market.
