  1. It makes me feel much more secure knowing that they own a lot. The more the have, the greater incentive they have to increase its value. The less they have, they less they (potentially) care about the price. It’s a guarantee that they will work hard to raise the price. This seems really obvious to me. How is it that people freak out when a CEO sells their shares of a company (or David Schwartz sells some XRP) yet people object to Ripple holding on to large quantities of XRP?

  3. Can you prove to me that Coca-Cola is not a scam? Come on. They are building a useful network right before our eyes. This network has clear utility which will be beneficial to anyone who uses it. Did you see Ashton Kutcher instantly send $4,000,000 to Ellen’s wildlife charity? This is an example of someone choosing to use it for a charitable benefit. But maybe some dude in Zimbabwe will use it so a tourist can pay him instantly for a ride to his hotel. We are watching the network being built. If you can’t see it, then you’re blind.
  4. Create the highway and let the buyers and sellers decide what car to drive. XRP will be the fastest and cheapest. They’ll discover that very quickly.
  5. I very much doubt that Google is (blindly) speculating on the future of XRP. By that I mean that I find it a little inconceivable that Ripple would not have some sort of contact with the brains of the most powerful internet company in the world... particularly given the amount of money and forward-thinking that Ripple has devoted to its college funds, xpring, etc. Point being, it’s disingenuous to imagine Google merely “speculating” on xrp’s furure.
  6. I think it’s very simply a playful nod to JungleInc’s YouTube channel. I wouldn’t read too much into it.
  7. Just speculating, but if you’re truly a believer in it’s future and you’re truly in it for the long-game, you might just want the price to grow organically at a stable pace which genuinely matches its real-world usage.... as opposed to encouraging speculative investors to jump in and create another bubble. That’s not healthy for its adoption because it gives crypto a bad reputation and scares people away. If you genuinely believe in where this is all going, and especially if you are a huge investor with connections, such as Google... maybe, just maybe... you have the inside information
  8. Remember when Cory Tweeted the photo of him shaking hands with the Canadian PM with the caption, “This matters,” and then removed it within just a few minutes? I’m not suggesting that that cost him a job, but it was apparently sloppy, and I’m guessing he wouldn’t have taken it down unless Brad called him and ordered him to. Pure speculation of course, but why else does one hastily remove a selfie of themselves with a PM?
  9. Brad Garlinghouse has said from the start that this is a 3-5 year plan, and that we are in the very early steps of a marathon. He’s stated that he isn’t concerned about price at this phase. Meanwhile, he seems to have kept his promises about rapidly building solid partnerships. We’ve seen celebrities like Ashton Kutcher and Scooter Braun promote them and hint of things to come. We’ve seen banks invest millions and millions of dollars into Ripple, while claiming that the XRP standard is coming. We’ve seen David Schwartz’s price predictions (he would possibly say that he didn’t make a pric
  10. They are clearly waiting for me to accumulate more. I’m hurrying, but I have a very limited income and it’s going to take a long time to accumulate enough to send my kids to college, and buy our family dream home. Be patient though... just a few more months....
  11. I’ll tell you exactly why. Many people bought in heavily over the past few months, even to the point of over-extending and buying more than they could afford. They knew that they would have to sell in December, in order to buy Christmas gifts and pay bills, but they didn’t want to risk out the possibility of an EoY super-rally. They knew quite well that there was a very real possibility that the plan would fail and they wouldn’t make any huge gains, but they also felt confident that they wouldn’t suffer a huge loss, so they figured they’d let it ride as long as they could. Now they are b
  12. No one takes him seriously. I wouldn’t waste so much time on him.
  13. Institutional investors? Yes, I hate Coinbase right along with most of you, however they are a very established name and now provide a secure custody solution for multi-million dollar investors wishing to buy XRP. Banks are going to need secure custody solutions. Or maybe they will just store giant golden Nano Ledgers in their vaults..?
  14. Okay, I can not argue with this point. I was the original poster, and so far as I’m concerned, this post settles it. ?
  15. I get your point, however let's not forget about Coil, Xpring, etc.
  16. Can I state something that I think is somewhat obvious, yet I've very rarely seen discussed? IMHO it's kind of an "elephant in the room": XRP has a real name problem which IMHO is hindering mass-adoption. Let me just state for the record that I am incredibly bullish on XRP and Ripple. I've been a supporter for a year now, having switched over to it from BTC after realizing that BTC had significant scaling issues; but I've always felt that it's name hinders its adoption somewhat, by the general public. "Bitcoin," "Stellar," "Ether," "Litecoin"..... all of these are easily and intuitively
  17. From six months ago: https://oracletimes.com/tipping-point-ripple-xrp-adds-bank-per-week-in-quick-fire-xrapid-inroads/ “...So many banks are signing on so quickly that Ripple CEO Brad Garlinghouse said in a recent interview that Ripple would stop announcing partnerships until the number reaches 200...”
  18. Like Saul’s conversion on the road to Damascus: some of the most impressive testimonies sometimes come from those who were once the most outspoken critics. (I’m certainly not comparing XRP to Christ, but just saying that these sort of high-profile converts can make the most zealous promoters.)
  19. Those of you who are critical are reading the article, correct? Make no mistake... this is an investment. ”Ripple’s new focus reflects its view that education, particularly in STEM and FinTech, is a key driver of innovation across all sectors. Ripple’s contributions to teaching and research in blockchain (through the University Blockchain Research Initiative), cryptocurrency and fintech are intended to encourage broader understanding, adoption and innovation in business and finance, computer science, law and policy and other relevant fields. In particular, Ripple for Good will focus on ap
  20. I'm pretty sure he said he'd eat his own **** if they ever traded it, but I confess I may be starting to confuse quotes.....
  21. I have little concern about this. I do believe that Ripple's five-year advantage, not to mention some of their talent such as David Schwartz and connections that they've been working on, gives them an enormous advantage here. That said, it's foolish to completely dismiss any threats. Don't be like Obama when he infamously mocked ISIS and called them a "junior varsity" player. I haven't read The Art of War, but I'm sure Sun Tzu would agree that the best warriors don't underestimate their opponents or allow their own cockiness to lower their guard. Again, I'm not terribly concerned, but it
  22. It's all about the publicity. You can't buy that kind of publicity. This may not be important with regard to the FI's, but it's important to mainstream adoption.
  23. So there was also the guy who appeared on Ellen with Ashton... a big music industry guy, and isn’t Madonna supposed to be promoting it soon?
