  1. https://www.coindesk.com/trump-blockchain-critical-technologies?utm_source=dlvr.it&utm_medium=twitter Credit to @HamEggsnSam "DLT is one of 20 focus areas on the National Security Council's "critical and emerging technologies" shortlist, released Thursday.... Pockets of the U.S. government are already investing in blockchain infrastructure, the Department of Homeland Security most publicly so. The U.S. military is also examining DLT for combat operations, but efforts are still in their early stages. Chinese officials have long been bullish on DLT. A state-sa
  2. This is good. This tells me that SWIFT will be pushing hard to join hands with R3 and Ripple, otherwise they are irrelevant.
  3. LetHerRip is such an arrogant, smelly piece of garbage. I'll believe this tech when I see it. It sounds to me like a last gasp to hold onto legacy giants and the power they hold over all other players. Good piece of FUD, though.
  4. Is it possible they are using xrp for settlement. Have a look at what IamLegion @Paisan26849860 has posted: In particular this:

  6. 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.
  7. ..."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 c
  8. 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."
  9. Windows from DOS moment. Crypto desperately needed this.
  10. 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.
  11. "Aside from moving XRP into Sygnum custody account, users can also improve fiat liquidity with lombard loan against XRP."
  12. His identifier is "Let Her Rip". That's a pretty big hint! I wouldn't take him too seriously.
  13. 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.
  14. 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?
  15. 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.
  16. And this is how the underdog becomes top dog. Ripple will leapfrog Swift. Legard will not sit idle and let Swift sink them.
  17. Were you around during the 2017/2018 rally? If so I'm sure you would remember that BTC was painful to trade. You didn't know if your trade was successful or not often for hours. That was with just a few speculators relative to the what the market will be when adoption really takes place, especially if there is a run fueled by the current Coronavirus/financial crisis. It's true there are more exchanges, on-ramps, etc. and they are better prepared, but the underlying problem has still not been solved with BTC. All the while Ripple has only improved and built out their tech and partnerships to in
