  1. According to Armstrong, Coinbase is seeing a lot of institutional demand. 200-400M per week in crypto deposits.
  2. Exactly. Not many people understand this. Yet another reason why I'm confident in Ripple and XRP moving forward. I don't see any other solution that directly benefits smaller FIs.
  3. I think people forget that xRapid has only been live for 6 months. In that time, 12 remittance companies have confirmed that they plan to use xRapid, there are indications that xRapid volume is growing (check @behindtheledger on twitter), and XRP's liquidity continues to improve on a weekly basis through new exchanges. It isn't the get-rich-quick investment that many hoped for, but imo Ripple has made gradual progress.
  4. Thanks, @BobWay that really helps me gain a better understanding of the situation that Ripple is dealing with. I appreciate your detailed response!
  5. Thanks for the response. I'm trying to think of a better way to ask my question. I understand that Spring doesn't directly handle any of the regulatory issues, but do you think the fact that other companies and projects are building around XRP will help prove that it's not a security? Hope that makes more sense.
  6. HI Bob, Thank you for all of your contributions! I have really enjoyed reading all of your input. Do you think the XPring initiative will help determine that XRP isn't a security? Was this a primary reason for why Ripple decided to launch XPring? Thanks again for your thoughts
  7. Don't worry guys. Craig Wright is going to put an end to this whole thing
  8. Can someone explain to me how this even constitutes as 'blockchain'?
  9. The first time I started to question Cory was at 7:40 in this video. He had an excellent opportunity to address what Ripple/Xrapid offer, but he missed his chance. He looked like he didn't have an answer.
  10. I always liked Cory, but I usually came away unimpressed with his knowledge of Ripple's products and XRP in general. Good salesman but I don't think his background matches Ripple's needs. That's just my guess. Wish him the best of luck moving forward.
  11. apparently so... https://www.coindesk.com/cory-johnson-out-as-ripples-chief-market-strategist
  12. I guess this is a confirmation that the savings were related to Ripple?
  13. I thought SWIFT's blockchain project had reached a 'dead end'. Does their liquidity solution plan on utilizing digital assets?
  14. The report is underwhelming. With that being said, if Ripple continues to save FI's time and money, eventually, the demand will follow. Hopefully sooner rather than later. This bear market is starting to wear on all of us.
  15. The liquidity isn't sufficient for large transactions at the moment, so smaller payments are the focus in the near future. Xrapid is less than 4 months old, and Ripple has already managed to add about a dozen or so production contracts. Having been self-employed my entire adult life, I'm impressed with what Ripple has been able to accomplish in such a short period of time. It's a matter of improved regulatory clarity, liquidity, and Ripple continuing to add production contracts. I think we'll see improvement in all three of those categories in 2019, and that's why I continue to remain optimistic about XRP in the near future and long term.
  16. I'm sure someone will invest in it, lose all of their money, and then somehow find a way to blame Ripple.
  17. 2018 was the year of xcurrent. I have a feeling 2019 is going to be the year of xrapid in terms of % growth
  18. I’m most excited about DX tokenizing stocks. My impression is that we’ll be able to seamlessly buy aapl, nflx, etc. with our xrp at some point. Times are changin
  19. Voted $1-5, but anything between $1-10 is possible imo. Wallstreet opening exchanges, US regulation, Xrapid adoption, more base pairs, and banks offering custody services could all act as major catalysts. There's a lot to be excited about! Happy 2019 everyone!
  20. My favorite part is the quote below. Surely someone like Viamericas/Paul Dwyer wouldn’t use xrapid/xrp unless he truly believed that it’s not a security. “Speaking of Coinbase, let’s take a look at Ripple’s partnership with the Viamericas Corporation. Its co-founder and CEO, Paul Dwyer is a board chairman of the Money Services Business Association (MSBA). The MSBA works directly with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).”
  21. Patience. It's only the beginning. There is very little money flowing through xrapid at the moment, so this doesn't tell us anything about xrapid's ability to move the price. I'm just pleased to see any activity at all. We're right on the edge of something special! Crawl-walk-run
