    Thank you for this, its nice to see a sumup of some views together.

    I personally liked Strictlys TA also in where he explains channels are no holy boundaries that should never be broken but estimates of highs/lows.


    This "mother of all XRP channels" of course deserves mention! Still trying to find the correct mix so that's not just TA - maybe mix with one or two relevant news items:


  2. If there is one person the universe needs, it's David. He's absolutely humble and modest, politely forthcoming and, well, an absolute Einstein of our times - and no social drinking. 

    Guess that's key to keep that splendid mind he has. David's the treasure Ripple has to take most care of - he's invaluable, really. Could get any salary he wants, anywhere.

    David sticking with all his energy, mind and heart to Ripple and XRP - that, to me, is if not the main reason to believe in the project.

  3. Altogether the inefficient corridors and unbanked are probably a market larger than the playing field of the established banks. Whatever competition comes along, I think Ripple gave up some time ago trying to confront the biggest names in banking and finances heads on. These might join, however, eventually, if the Ripple concept proves right.

    It’s definitely nonsense.   :) 

    The bold is WHY it is nonsense.   Your conspiracy theory is NOT the only explanation.  If you think it is then you haven’t understood much at all about this market.


    This is certainly a good and possible explanation although it depends on what you consider good news.  I think it’s good news when Ripplenet grows and when UK creates regulatory certainty etc.   

    But others won’t consider it good news until the final pieces of the whole puzzle are in place and utility at volume becomes fully apparent.  The thing about that is unfortunately by then the market has started to wake up and bargains aren’t as much available.

    I’m really tired of seeing close minded conspiracy theorists dead certain that Ripple are pulling strings and controlling price when there are plenty of other more rational explanations.  It’s like saying that it’s obvious the Sun revolves around the Earth because you can see it doing so.  But the reality is more subtle than short simplistic answers.


    Others get tired of the unwavering apologists always having an excuse for everything Ripple does. Face it, XRP is or was financing most of Ripple's operations. And of course the earth is flat, depending on where you're looking from.

    1. Ripple "announcements" will have no impact on the price of XRP - Moneygram for example was a significant partnership and did nothing.

    2. It is not in Ripple's interest for any announcement to have an impact on the price of XRP - it suggests they have an element of control over the price.

    I rather think that good news actually WOULD have an impact on price, but they counter-sell XRP to level out price again. Of course you can say this is nonsense, it's however the only logical explanation as of why good news have no impact whatsoever on price.

    I just went to some length to describe why I won't comment:  My silence is not positive or negative; it's me not getting into price discussions. 


    In the end, isn't price what it's all about? Or strictly altruistic motives?

    Of course, this is the real challenge, talking about price, expectations, vision vs. reality, etc. And this is were some issues start and cracks appear that hopefully are solved over time. But just ignore it? Or are you saying that everything is perfectly going according to plan?

    Or are you mainly a chronicler? Then it would be helpful to point that out, because it could be misleading to folks who are newer to it.

    In fact, it makes no sense to talk about crypto and not about prices involved, because in the end that's what it's all about. Ripple's and XRP's success are measured by numbers, not by flowery visions.

    Understanding price movements and fluctuations are also important in the whole context. Crypto without price analysis, it's like a body without bones.

    Ha!  Well, I do have an immediate answer, but I will not share it; it's up to each individual investor to make that particular decision on their own.  :JC_thinking:

    Here's what I will say:

    IMO XRP is the best choice among every crypto that I know of, from a standpoint of utility and fundamental value of its use cases. 

    Of course, yes, but given the current trend?
