  1. Well @enrique11, many of Ripple's partner so far come from questionable countries.

    Partnerships in Saudi Arabia, UAE, Thailand (which is a defacto dictatorship under the disguise of (faked) elections), the Philippines with their strongman Duterte, etc. So China is no exception.

    I'm a firm believer in the poisoned dollar bill. Change by economics and trade and business infiltration is far more plausible than change by economic pressure, boycotts and sanctions.


  2. Well Miguel wrote those reports first, and he disappeared. Cory as well who co-authored: disappeared. 

    Right, they're looking for that report writer. 

    Seriously, I was always more interested in RippleNet updates about new members, initiatives, goals, etc., in those reports. The XRP figures don't say much and aren't that reliable. So maybe Ripple's dropping the reports altogether in times of clandestine pre-IPO preparations.

    Agreed. I hope he has left - I found him by far the least impressive Ripple employee I've seen in panel discussions, interviews and on Twitter, regardless of the liquidity issue.

    Mostly these postures are signs of insecurity.

    "On July 2, 2014, the FT Alphaville team organised Camp Alphaville, a one-day finance festival in the heart of the city, in which over 500 people took part. The camp featured a main stage that hosted rolling discussions and interviews ranging from the future of money to "nuts markets". More focused discussions were held on the sidelines in inflatable igloos. Speakers and attendees were also able to beam into the event via autonomous telepresence robots." 

    lol sign me up 

    OMG the level of intel in here is deplorable. Is it FT approved / embedded / affiliated or not?

    The ones complaining about FUD turn into fudsters themselves.

    Pointless thread. Ripple has virtually stopped selling for months now.

    How can you be so sure about this? Just because they say so? What about the big chunks each month not going back into escrow?

    They also never told us before that - even with no insitutional sales - that they'll keep back large amounts of XRP for whatever purposes.

    TBH, Brad seems likeable as a person, but more and more not like the kind of guy who stands for integrity, transparency and trustworthiness.

    End of 2018 he proclaimed that Ripple by now is running in the black without depending on XRP sales. Should we go on listing the, well, untruths?


  6. These massive holdings - Chris Larsen's and a few others' as well - cloud the whole XRP and Ripple space somewhat.And of other tokens as well. That's the nature of crypto and founders. To them it doesn't make much difference whether one XRP costs a few cents or a few dollars. At whatever value, with these amounts of holdings they hit the jackpot day in, day out. 

    These holdings should be given back into the pool and distributed to create and foster the space.

    They want juicy stories, just like tabloids. Why wouldn't they do "research" and stumble upon some fake docs and "an (anonymous) employee" confirming the news? Don't know how come but it makes me think about bg123 which was also anonymous and "an insider" or "someone in the know".

    If the news is true some people high up the ranks will probably know way ahead of us and would certainly be stacking aggressively. I don't see that in the market so imma go with the conclusion that it's yet another fake.

    OMG can't you people read? I give up.

    Is this XRP Chat or Donald Trump's twitter history???????

     

    Information has come out from shady websites and eventually proven true. Information has come out and also proven to be untrue. We just have to wait and see. It could be tomorrow or it could eight months.

    Again, https://siamblockchain.com is not a shady website, they're Thailand's largest dedicated crypto and blockchain site and were invited by Ripple to the recent Singapore event. They received the press release from Ripple's comms partner in Asia, dated February 18.

    Faiz Ahmad, head of Global Transaction Services (GTS) at Bank of America, and Ed Metzger, CTO of OnePay FX at Santander, are quoted in the presser. And of course Brad.

    There's too much at stake for that comms company to just spread nonsense. But if some anonymous keyboard warriors prefer to ignore what's right before their eyes, so be it. 

    Of course it's more than awkward having to retract the whole story, one gets an easy target. Move on, it'll be confirmed rather sooner than later.
