  1. https://ftalphaville.ft.com/2020/02/26/1582730287000/The-art-of-redefining-success--MoneyGram-and-Ripple-edition/ Quote: When pressed on Ripple’s own profitability, Mr. Garlinghouse noted that Ripple, the company, was cash flow positive. How much of that cash flow was coming from service provision as opposed to sales of pre-existing XRP stock was less clear. Asked if XRP was keeping everything cash flow positive at Ripple Labs, Mr Garlinghouse answered: “Well XRP is one source. I don’t know how to answer that because if you took away our software revenues, that would make us less profitable. If you took away all our XRP, that makes us less profitable. So I don’t think about it as one thing.” He clarified later: “We would not be profitable or cash flow positive [without selling XRP], I think I’ve said that. We have now.”
  2. "... Americans on talent shows always talk about their dreams. Fine, if you have something that you’ve always dreamed of, like, in your heart, go for it! After all, it’s something to do with your time… chasing a dream. And if it’s a big enough one, it’ll take you most of your life to achieve, so by the time you get to it and are staring into the abyss of the meaninglessness of your achievement, you’ll be almost dead so it won’t matter...." Tim Minchin, Graduation Speech, 17 September, 2013, University of Western Australia, Australia
  3. I think it's possible that the CTO of HSBC, Stephen Bayly knows something that none of us do.
  4. Cut the video by 50% and remove any reference to doomsday predictions. It will make the video 5x as good. I still have a hangover from peak oil predictions.
  5. The way I understood it is that R3 may have difficulties bringing one of their products over the finish line. It could be a case of 1 plus 1 equals 3 if they are able to jointly bring something to market faster that might service the insurance sector for instance. It's all based on rumours and conjecture. Why this would require an acquisition of any kind, I have no idea. Maybe they need to create a newco?
  6. Just for the record, he also called the Canada Post announcement. Both, came from absolutely nowhere. Being a scammer does not mean that he does not have contacts.
  7. Scammer or not, his prediction track record can't be entirely based on luck. He is being fed some information from time to time from somewhere valuable.
  8. The 18M number on the left, what metric would that be? Volume in $ or numbers of transactions? I did 18M x 2824, which gives me approx. 51 billion in 2 years.
  9. Thank you for sorting out the math! I didn't expect my question to generate so much debate Next question - so what is the estimated xRapid volume at the moment? Anyone has an educated guess?
  10. Can somebody please do a compound growth calculation based on 170% per quarter for a year or two years? I am getting a stupidly high number
