  1. You must understand that things get delayed especially in large enterprises. Have you ever tried getting a project into production? As a software developer, unexpected things always come up that may push your launch date (better to push back then rush to production with a broken product). I understand you’d like a CEO to be a little more accurate with his “predictions”, but look at the scale of what Ripple is accomplishing and these delays start to make sense. When you’re upending an age old infrastructure, it’s going to take time and you’re going to hit speed bumps (liquidity, regulation). Have patience (easy to say now), I truly believe what Ripple has accomplished/is accomplishing will one day be looked at as revolutionary on a global scale. And then factor in the other companies (Coil, Xpring, Polysign, XRPTipBot etc) building on the XRPL... HODL on XRP is in great hands
  2. Hey @BobWay Does Ripple integrate its solutions for its customers or are other cloud providers making Ripple solutions available through their own cloud platforms? A few come to mind SAP, Volante, Temenos, Bluezelle, Microsoft etc. The community has definitely speculated on this: Bluzelle/Temenos: Volante: https://www.volantetech.com/news-events/press-releases/volante-technologies-launches-accelerator-for-bank-integration-to-ripple-s-distributed-financial-technology Is cloud+Payments as a Service the future?
  3. I’d say this and Polysign are the two announcements I’m personally waiting on.
  4. I know there are some great channels but I really don’t care for any of it, I’d rather read articles and information myself and form my own opinions. You must remember the underlying motives are usually views, more “bullish” news+dot connecting/hype == more views (especially in this bear market) 🤷🏻‍♂️

    Hi! I'm Bob

    @BobWay I believe he already linked the 2 that have been issued here: http://patft.uspto.gov/netacgi/nph-Parser?Sect1=PTO2&Sect2=HITOFF&p=1&u=%2Fnetahtml%2FPTO%2Fsearch-bool.html&r=0&f=S&l=50&TERM1=Way%2C+Robert&FIELD1=INNM&co1=AND&TERM2=Ripple&FIELD2=ASNM&d=PTXT #2 “Resource Path Monitoring” talks about “resource paths” and “resource pools” potentially having to do with pathfinding and or xPool (not sure if Ripple has ever confirmed xPool to actually exist)? I know Ripple owns a trademark on xPool so it’d be awesome to learn more about it (if it’s something that actually exists, or whether they were just “defensively” getting trademarks for some possible future project) I’ve only briefly skimmed these so let me read them more in depth and come back to this as I could be on the complete wrong path here. Once again thanks Bob!

    Hi! I'm Bob

    Honestly it might be more beneficial if we all setup validators, it literally takes seconds with the docker image Wietse @xrptipbot setup and he has an awesome guide on how to do it: It would be a great way to strengthen+diversify the XRP ledger!

    Hi! I'm Bob

    @BobWay can you speak at all to the validity of this thread where this person claims to be an insider from BofA and says something along the lines of them having an exclusive agreement using Ripple? Who do you think will be the first major bank to use XRP (I’ve always assumed it’d be BofA due to their close albeit quiet relationship with Ripple)? Also since were getting speculation out of the way and David @JoelKatz is in the house, is there any reason Uber/Amazon/AirBNB are always referenced in Ripple presentations? I could see them hugely benefiting from Ripple technology due to constantly paying out in a variety of currencies (xVia comes to mind). Are they interested? Again thank you for taking the time to interact with us and provide these insightful responses!

    Hi! I'm Bob

    @BobWay Just want to preface this with a huge thank you for doing this for the community, the stuff I’ve learned is absolutely incredible from just this post. How far ahead of “competition” is Ripple in realizing it’s strategey? Who are their closest competitors in your opinion, IBM? I think the strategy of Ripple is crystal clear in that they are targeting high friction corridors (Mexico, India, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand...) are these (mostly ASEAN) the corridors that will see a lot of XRP usage at first? I’ve also seen a lot of activity in the MENA region, it seems like they’ve gone full on into the blockchain space, do you see that as being a targeted corridor for XRP use? How do big banks/treasuries view crypto currencies like XRP in your opinion, are they taking it seriously? Can they realize benefits today or are they waiting to join the game? What’s holding them back? Back in 2016 there was a pilot of like 16 banks that trialed using XRP and they said they were pretty much on board but couldn’t use it because of regulations, are they any closer to using digital assets today?
  9. It’s not a proof of stake network, coin ownership does not matter. Why are you not asking the same about Bitcoin or even worse Ethereum? How much ETH does Consensys own? How much do they sell every month? Can you verify these numbers?
  10. This kid is crying on twitter about a lecture Susan gave as a guest about the XRPL and Bitcoin at Stanford. Here’s her slides: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1oLHfKorF3PVTZr4sTdMfmYlisNwNJLbB/view
  11. I also found that a bit surprising but seems to confirm my suspicion about xRapid being “live”. I undoubtedly believe the ledger volume would be much higher than it is today if it were truly live. My guess is that they’re “live” with certain customers (mercuryFX for example) perhaps as a demonstration // real world “proof of concept”. It could help deomonstrate how DAs can be used in cross border payments to transfer value. I feel like this tweet is flying massively under the radar: it seems to be how most govt’s are treating crypto, ban trading but acceptable if used to facilitate money transfer
  12. Seems to me like they’re just pruning some low hanging fruit. He was there to help explain the Ripple + XRP distinction and I believe this is them saying his job is done. One of my fav quotes: If you think this is Ripple saying they’re strapped for cash, just remember they are opening offices in Dubai+Hong Kong...
  13. I bought my first XRP a year ago almost exactly to this day (REKT. I know). I know everyone always say they heard about BTC back in 2013, I should’ve bought it! Well I had a friend mining it and I wanted 0 part of it because I didn’t understand it. Fast forward to December last year, everyone is talking about it and I felt extremely dumb for not digging into the space at all, especially with the technical background that I have. So I made it my goal to research everything and anything about this space. I very quickly stumbled upon Ripple and XRP. It was hard to see the value at first as many in the cryptosphere called it a centralized scam, but the more I looked into the company, their partners, and the problem they were solving I was immediately hooked. I started reading through David’s old comments (man is a genius and doesn’t get the recognition he deserves, instead we applaud Roger Ver and Craig Wright and worship some fake persona “Satoshi”) and started following quality researchers on twitter like @BANKXRP and XrpCenter who post relevant snippets as well as the sources they come from. I made an account here and started reading awesome threads by guys like @Tehol_Beddict and articles written by @Hodor, @galgitron. After being here for a year, I’ve noticed there’s a lot of noise in this space that can get you caught up in hype but it’s understandable. This is revolutionary technology, on the scale of tcp/ip. People have access to banks now because of projects like Mojaloop and companies like Ripple. They’re creating a global economy. It’s amazing to witness, I used to check the price everyday until I realized we’re still tied to bitcoin. If XRP can reach the levels it did last year based on pure speculation, where will it go once it’s being fully utilized? Whenever I explain Ripple+XRP, I like to use this quote championed by Ripple themselves: “Enable the world to move value like information moves today” https://ripple.com/insights/the-internet-of-value-what-it-means-and-how-it-benefits-everyone/ 2019 is lining up to be a big year for Ripple and XRP, thank you to everyone here on XRPChat (plenty that I didn’t mention, I apologize) for helping and educating new people like myself
