  1. 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.
  2. So what are you saying is Ripple's message these gullible miss?
  3. Small investors altogether have probably contributed more money than all these big names together. Of course small investors have a say, and it's nice to see that they're heard. Money has been thrown in all directions for some time, just to name Bill Clinton, Ellen Degeneres, then our inexistent community manager, and so on. Seems Ripple is listening, which is great.
  4. Makes no sense to be an XRP "investor" and not having any questions and being a blind follower. The obedient sheep neither help Ripple forming its path ahead nor are they doing the community a service. Asking questions and having a critical mind - with the ability to concede when you are just plain wrong - are the basis of progress.
  5. So I asked Riley Q about her earnings, and she answered that the "majority comes from the Boost Program". She just posted an article about Coil and monetization: https://coil.com/p/RileyQ/New-to-Coil-10-Keys-to-Success/O4HTL Of course she monetizes the website, YouTube and Coil - plus Boost Program. Chapeau. Not the average "monetizer", but as expected she enjoys special payouts.
  6. Maybe if you're an influencer, which she is clearly not. Or you have a team maintaining the site, which she doesn't have. You need at least 20-30k unique visitors a day to make this amount in a few months.
  7. She she must have either enjoyed a promotional rate or her stuff is successful beyond dreams. Even Google Ads, which pays best, would hardly achieve $3.4k within a few months. But again, Coil payouts have been lowered the past few weeks. I have websites with a few hundred readers per day. Currently earns me a few drops with Coil. Basically nothing.
  8. Coil gets this 1-billion-XRP-grant from Ripple - okay, we don't know the details. Must be a very long-term deal. Have two websites monetized with Coil and trying to use the Coil platform for content. Still way to go, conventional ads pay many more multiples of what Coil pays. Coil certainly needs more momentum. Oh and they don't have control over payouts, that's done via XRPTipBot - so they depend on a third party. Now during the past month or so Coil made a big change with payouts. The amount of drops donated went down by a high factor. According to Coil it's now down to 100 millionths of a dollar per second. That's 0.0001 bucks per second. That's $0.36 per hour. Well, that wouldn't actually be too bad, would it. But for this you need a solid amount of readers who are Coil subscribers. We'll get there, somehow, me hopes. Question, is anyone out there making even a little bit of money with Coil's monetization.?
  9. It's quite a challenge to monetize with Coil. One needs a huge reader list - or depend on conventional ad monetization. Of course I'd love Coil to succeed. They're currently experimenting with some different payout strategies. When you use Coil for a certain amount in a month the rate of Coil payout will decrease. This helps prevent abuse of the platform by people who idle on their own sites, but sometimes one can reach this threshold by normal usage. The rate will return to 100 millionths of a dollar per second when the subscription renews. As said, this model requires a lot of subscribed readers to see earnings, otherwise you're talking about monthly earnings in the very low dollars. Another option is to use the Coil.com platform for content creation. All content is monetized, whether you're a Coil subscriber or not. Currently experimenting with that.
  10. This statement doesn't make any sense since Ripple completely depends on XRP sales. They'd be nowhere without massive XRP sales. So there's no point about talking about a separation of the two. Of course a token holder has no rights, but that's not the point. Okay, they collect xCurrent and other licensing fees, hopefully so, but all the expansion depends on XRP sales. So what is good for the XRP community is also good for Ripple themselves - or else they already make so much money thanks to this golden token goose that they just only care for their shareholders? Not likely.
  11. Well said OP. Agree that many ventures are not core responsibilities of Ripple, especially the philanthropist ones. They can do that once they settled, not as a startup. Money's much too loose in their pockets.
  12. Why don't you offer your credentials and factual rebuttals of the arguments made by the OP that make sense.
  13. So you're saying all is on track and that's the way it's planned all along and supposed to be.
  14. Get the discussion going that Ripple hears it loud and clearly. Comment on Ripple diehard loyalists Twitter posts, etc. Their golden donkey ******** money is neither sustainable nor beneficial to the building up of a strong and resilient ecosystem. Much funds are thrown around in irresponsible ways - I don't mind how much Bill Clinton cost last year and Ellens African animals and so forth, but money just sits too loosely in their pockets. They hype - then milk the market. Again and again. Plus they've become quite quiet, sensing the backlash? High time them moving ahead in more responsible ways. Can't hear the apologetic talk anymore, such as but they have no obligation, they can do what they want... no, they can't. They have serious obligations.
  15. Excellent stuff, excellent research, thanks much for this confidence booster!
