  1. Lol is it really worth your time to even respond This is a fascinating discussion, I’d want to hear more of the technical breakdown of how a private ledger works more optimally then the public ledger:
  2. I have been following $dxy dollar index for some time and it’s correlation to crypto, PMs etc. It has *generally* played out as, $dxy up, btc everything else down, and vice versa: Personally, I don’t see how the dollar can continue rising with where we are at with bonds, $1.9t stimulus, countries wanting to ditch the dollar etc
  3. @BillyOckhamFYI I posed the question to towo and this was the response:
  4. Is it possible to opt out of a future airdrop by just removing the message key and ETH address that you set this up with?
  5. The part that worries me most is that this airdrop will happen over a period of time, each time not knowing what the price is going to be. It’s quite a gamble at this point, on the one hand I really want to claim as much as I can (with the hope that the US could adopt a more friendly regulatory process in the near future) but on the other, I don’t want to be liable for all these taxes if something crazy happens. For this reason, I’ve seen others in the US create a smaller wallet for the claim, I guess I’ll do the same and only claim a small amount.
  6. So I have read a lot on this crazy story with Jed, Jesse Powell, Chris Larsen etc. I’ve never read this steemit before, but it did warrant a response from @JoelKatz . https://steemit.com/ripple/@olyup/fck-you-money-the-rise-and-fall-of-xrp I’ve never seen the theory that FCK/YOU and FCK/XRP is what led to the initial rise in March ‘17 and was a way to raise volume so Jed could sell. Personally I don’t believe it and the wallet does not appear to be his https://bithomp.com/explorer/rJed6Ttuz4aD2EeinKZWPrGK9KiepX2iWL And I don’t know enough to know whether the back and forth trading of those tokens would’ve caused the spike the author suggests. It seems more like a troll post to me
  7. Depends on how you store your XRP. If you use a ledger nano, this guide by @Wietseis very helpful: https://flare.wietse.com You can alternatively send your XRP to somewhere like XUMM or another supporting exchange As always, consider risks and take steps you feel most comfortable with:
  8. Do you attribute any of that anomaly action to Ripples new strategy of buying XRP back from the open market?
  9. @JASCoder is there anything indicating this recent price action is ODL driven or assisted
  10. How do you guys feel tracking now that line of credit is in beta? Is it harder to track the flow:
  11. I know this chart is a rolling 28 day average but damn that fell off a cliff:
  12. Your XRP aren’t locked until snapshot date right? If you set this up with a wallet based on an amount, and then sell xrp, is the number of flare you get based on when you set up the wallet or when the actual snapshot occurs?
  13. @nikb I appreciate the thorough discussion on the topic both here and on Twitter. I do sense a lot of confusion around the incident still, even with @JoelKatz trying to clear the air. I’m curious whether a postmortem would be useful for others to read. I understand you and the team at Ripple are not responsible for the XRPL, but from an earlier comment it looks like you guys did fix an issue (as seen in the commit https://github.com/ripple/rippled/commit/bd2a38f5844ce824c02cce1ed97e9cf0cd04c019). I did go through it but a lot of changes are due to what looks like an ide auto-format adding a bunch of spaces on top of the actual changes that fixed this. From a very simplistic point of view, if you were monitoring for partial validations would that have allowed you to catch this faster and alert validators? Even if you don’t know the specific cause, at least you’d see partial validations and know something is wrong. This seems like an easy enough tool to build, would a tool that lets you look and ensure no partial validations (or which validators are issuing partial validations) be useful to catch something like this in the future? This is by no means me suggesting the tool be built by Ripple, I would give it a shot if I can free up some time in my personal life, just wondering if such a tool would be useful
  14. Hello, I cried reading this thread. It’s been so long. Too long.
  15. @Eric123ive been seeing people point out the inverse correlation between $dxy and crypto/metals/stock, over the last few weeks it’s been $dxy up, crypto down:
  16. Intense FOMO and speculation during the ‘17-‘18 bull run. That’s all The same could happen again and it could reach that price again on speculation alone, however many of us here are waiting on utility to kick in (people actually using the asset). Once that happens on a large scale it’s anyone’s guess as to where the price falls.
  17. Revisiting this Fiserv thread after I saw this tweet from VP of payments strategy “Need for payments flexibility” got me thinking what kind of relationship does Fiserv have with Ripple (if any)... Quick google search brought me to this thread by the great @Tehol_Beddict Ohhhhh and would you look at that little breadcrumb, who we know has now OFFICIALLY partnered with Nium... @Tehol_Beddict brilliant stuff man
  18. Here we are just above the levels you were looking at
  19. What has caught my eye is that nowadays, the volume seems to be dwarfing that of the ‘17-‘18 bull run: I mean how much longer is this going to stay under 0.20
  20. I get it...take the contrarian view. I don’t hate seeing opposite viewpoints but sometimes arguing just for the sake of arguing gets old... @DirectorCoulson i can find your name nearly everywhere in these discussions arguing back and forth with someone, at some point it may just be easier to walk away and forget about the price for sometime. It’s what I did and I’m much happier... The market makes absolutely no sense, go open CMC and filter on top gainers and tell me if you’ve ever heard of ANY in the top say ~20: https://coinmarketcap.com/gainers-losers/ In that sense, why bother obsessing over the price when the whole market is clearly ass-backward (until we get some sort of regulation). Just sit back dude, if you’re sweating the money sell a chunk. If you believe it’ll hit $100 then selling some now shouldn’t matter.
  21. That article was about the shortfalls of POW, XRP uses a consensus protocol: https://xrpl.org/intro-to-consensus.html
  22. Not a lot, have been DCA’ing over the years, chasing that ever so close “bull run” I have a great job that supplies me with enough to mess around in crypto and not miss it. I look at these prices as something I never in my wild dreams could’ve imagined back in ‘18. Just have no idea how much further we have to fall with what’s going on in the world. ive already been told to work remotely at my company as many others have as well...things seem to be coming quickly to a halt in the states
  23. Do we know why Ripple initially bought their shares for something like $4+? Do they just not care short term, and are able to forecast that in the long term the savings+revenue will make the stock worth >$4?
