  1. Yes, I completely agree and the U.S. government sure as hell doesn't even want that to be a possibility. RippleNet will not be a standalone entity like SWIFT. RippleNet is what SWIFT is missing through their outdated infrastructure that takes days to move cross border payments. I would compare RippleNet to a computer processor. A processor, or "microprocessor," is a small chip that resides in computers and other electronic devices. Its basic job is to receive input and provide the appropriate output. While this may seem like a simple task, modern processors can handle trillions of
  2. I think this theory makes a lot of sense and seems to be a direction where both SWIFT and Ripple can coexist.The U.S. uses SWIFT to enforce sanctions and uses it as leverage for various other political reasons and they definitely will not want to lose control of that. I find it interesting too how often Ripple references the word "Rails" when describing the outdated payment infrastructure used currently. Rails would seem to indicate the underlying settlement infrastructure banks use in conjunction with the SWIFT messaging system. Companies, SWIFT, and Government entities will build the
  3. I know you guys are most likely tired of hearing about the SWIFT and Ripple partnership rumors but I found some pretty interesting relationships between the two noted below. What it seems like is that SWIFT GPI is very similar to Ripple's xCurrent and provides faster and more efficient messaging between financial institutions or corporations. Essentially, a bank would most likely prefer to stay SWIFT GPI due to the minor differences between GPI and xCurrent and the larger network SWIFT has. However, the thing that SWIFT GPI can't do is provide real time cross border payments using a
  4. I feel that this is a signs of good things to come and definitely shows the overall cryptomarket is moving in the right direction especially when you have a University with the second highest endowment in the country investing $400 million into a crypto fund. Investors and other institutions will take notice and hopefully entices others to begin investing in the cryptomarket. It looks like once the exchange BAAKT gets going and Coinbase Custody can securely hold and protect an institution's assets the sky is the limit.
  5. https://tokentops.com/news/money-tap-launches-their-site-what-it-means-for-xrp-ripple-news-september/ Momentum and companies are starting to come out of the word works! Will be interesting to learn more whether XRP will be used in this app and others to come. Utility is the only thing that is going to drive price upwards. Then Utility will then create FOMO to further increase the price.
  6. I understand how the logistics/technology of how wash trading works. The real question is why all of a sudden is this happening? With Ripple targeting the China market is seems that the timing is no coincidence and we could see demand originating from a new pair (ahem - XRP/ZB) to help drive demand. https://www.cnbc.com/2018/08/15/ripple-targeting-china-with-blockchain-based-payments-tech-exec-says.html
  7. Even if it is actually washtrading it still drawing interest to the currency pair of XRP/ZB which in turn could have a positive effect in the long run. It doesn't makes sense how the volume came out of no where.
  8. https://www.cryptocompare.com/coins/xrp/analysis/ZB https://www.cnbc.com/2018/08/15/ripple-targeting-china-with-blockchain-based-payments-tech-exec-says.html If the ZB exchange launched XRP last November where was the volume previously? Judging by the recent charts above there appears to be a significant increase in volume of XRP paired with ZB. The Chinese were the early adopters of Bitcoin. It looks like this shift in volume with the XRP/ZB pair shows they are showing significant interest this past month. Also, I love seeing that pie chart
  9. https://www.forbes.com/sites/astanley/2018/08/31/bitcoin-to-96000-xrp-to-0-01-by-2023-ico-advisor-satis-group-estimates/#75794a9b1490 Alright everyone time to sell we are going to $ .01 by 2023 LOL. This quote kills me "Little value in XRP and cryptoassets which are misleadingly marketed, not needed within their own network, and have centralized ownership/validation.” How can a so called advisory group stand behind that statement? Would love to know what actual ICO's Satis Group has worked on considering no other digital asset has utility like XRP.
  10. http://fortune.com/longform/nyse-owner-bitcoin-exchange-startup/ https://blog.coinbase.com/coinbase-custody-is-exploring-a-range-of-new-assets-e700496844be Will Coinbase Custody be providing custodial services to BAAKT? It is interesting to note the connection between these two companies and what the potential future hold in the coming months! It looks like Coinbase could be changing their business model to cater to custodial services by limiting their exposure to coin offerings due to the competitive nature of exchanges that is forthcoming. Additionally, custod
  11. I highly recommend this video by Lee Reiners, CFA who is the Executive Director, Global Financial Markets Center at Duke University School of Law. He discusses why it is so difficult to create new regulations for Fintech companies and uses Ripple as an example. This provides insight into why regulations especially in the U.S. are so slow to develop. Ripple knows what they are doing and in time will come out on top. There may be a pop up that comes up but you can just X out and the video will continue. https://www.coursera.org/lecture/fintechlawandpolicy/decentralized-paymen
  12. It will be interesting to see if there is a significant increase for the JPY fiat pair when SBI VC launches and onboards their customers in the coming months. Also, this shows how regulation helps mature market and gains the confidence of new investors to invest in XRP or any crypto for that matter. Good things to come!
  13. https://fasterpaymentstaskforce.org/wp-content/uploads/ripple-vs.pdf Attached is Ripple’s proposal to The Faster Payment Task Force that gives the best explaination I have found of Ripple’s vison and product line. Seems like Ripple might just be what they are looking for! ? Please note this is from February 2017 but I did not see it on site! ”In early 2016 the task force solicited proposals for end-to-end faster payments solutions that could address the need for fast, safe, ubiquitous payments. Seeking to address potential conflicts of interest, as well as concerns that all task
  14. Monetary Policy in the Digital Age - Crypto assets may one day reduce demand for central bank money (June 2018) Written by Dong He (Deputy Director of the Monetary and Capital Markets Department (MCM) of the International Monetary Fund) The article does not specifically mention Ripple but discusses their technology and use case! Additionally, it states "...some crypto assets will eventually be more widely adopted and fulfill more functions of money in some regions or private e-commerce network", which is exactly what Ripple is doing.! https://www.imf.org/external/pubs/ft/fandd/
  15. I believe this is good news for XRP. The investigations sheds a bad light on BTC for potential market manipulation therefore investors (institutional and retail) will lose trust in it.
