  1. Check this brilliant documentary on China's grip on Zambia. China holds a third of Zambia's national debt and growing. Luckily, some of the African countries have started to wake up with some taking serious action and deporting China's expats from their countries. Some countries even refusing China's unethical loans. Modern colonialism works through debt slavery and China has learned that from the best lol. The borrower is slave to the lender.
  2. Unlike South Korea, lobbying is not illegal in the US. Money should be completely removed from the political process but as long as big corporations are allowed to lobby then inequality will always continue to exist in the US. Is there anyone who can argue otherwise? Are we seriously entertaining the idea that Google, Facebook, Goldman, JPMorgan etc are lobbying for the benefit of the ordinary people and not for their own interest? Political parties should only be provided certain benefits such as airtime on TV/Radio to debate and perhaps some financial allowances provided by the gover
  3. I think the price dropped because of her. It's never healthy to keyboard slam buy orders before a skincare routine.
  4. This whole case seems nothing more than a personal vendetta by the SEC. They previously took Larsen to court and spectacularly lost which forced them to change regulations. Sounds like they were gunning for Larsen and they'd do anything to win. Unfortunately those part time lawyers at the SEC are up against the Avengers of lawyers lol
  5. Not just Africa but the Middle East, South East Asia, South America and Australia! For years the US and the rest of the world has been trying to get away on China's monopoly of rare earth minerals. Modern society relies on over 17 types of rare earth minerals which China controls over 80% of its production. Think about that, those high tech US/EU/Russia missiles and advance tech that protect you from China use rare earth minerals which China has a monopoly in its production. For years (if not decades) the US and the rest of the world have been looking for an alternative to China when i
  6. I love this and the video you linked as you can definitely put Traidman's points into practice by just looking at what China is actually doing. The USA called the shots with Bretton Woods as they were the super power at the time and their currency was backed by gold. The USD was not the first pick but the world didn't have a global currency at the time or couldn't agree on one so the US volunteered their currency and as it was backed by gold then it was a safe haven for nations to stockpile the USD as they could always redeem it against the gold reserves at the Fed. Nixon soon realised that
  7. SWIFT is fighting a losing battle and war (to eliminate any notion that SWIFT could lose a battle and win the war). SWIFT in its governing form was created by banks and for banks to streamline the messaging format to make it easy for correspondent banks to interact, much like TCP/IP did for the internet. The thing about SWIFT is that it's losing this battle in correspondent banking to the likes of Ripple, Visa, Mastercard, (and soon) Facebook, Google, Apple and even PayPal to name a few. In turn, the banks that own SWIFT are currently also fighting a losing battle to neo banks, digital only ba
  8. Love the first video when he says there'll be backlash as some of the incumbents will try to protect the status quo to their own benefit and control. *cough*Congress*cough*
  9. Damn, so its been like 3+ years of POC and has taken this long? I wonder how many more are under NDA and not saying anything.
  10. You and me are in the same boat. I want stuff to happen now but i know for a fact that its going to take years if not 1 or 2 decades for this new world order to take affect. Let's face, the Great Reset is not going to be an overnight thing. It's hilarious to think Ripple is moving towards zero carbon when I always belived that zero carbon is the future in accordance to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG). The G20 in Saudi Arabia set forth the new world order of SDG agenda. One of the things I have always felt why Bitcoin and Ethereum will never succeed and or proof of work will never succe
  11. I extremely apologise for the long post. This is my musings and please, you don't have to read it but if you ever feel why you are betting on the future generations then give it a read. This whole thread is worth a read from the start. I wholeheartedly agree with what you say. I too do not believe China will inherit the title of a sole reserve currency like the USD did. I do not believe that the world will ever turn to a single domestic currency that's also the World reserve currency like the USD did. Don't get me wrong, the USD had to create a lot of circumstances to get into that positi
  12. I'll throw in my 2 cents. I'll start with the how many customers are on Ripple. I stopped measuring this and I no longer care what Ripple announces. Accenture, Temenos and the likes have been providing Banking as a Service and that is the future of banking. Long gone will be the days of banks having to spend millions if not collectively billions a year trying to keep up with an IT department that's only their to ensure their inhouse systems actually talk to each other. Banks can save billions by digitilisation and moving towards banking as a service. The fact that Ripple connects to Acce
  13. It's a bit difficult to measure Ripple's customers considering companies like Accenture or that SwissRoute service that give their customers the option to either use SWIFT or RippleNet as options. Do you measure Ripple customers by those they directly announce? Or do you measure the indirect customers who can get to Ripple through companies like Accenture that offer a suite of banking software? Or do you measure Ripple customers by those that use ODL? If its ODL then you know the answer, until banks are given clarity then they won't hold or trade them directly. Custody is not the same. Si
  14. Yes, I am looking into this and thank you for the links. Truth be told, I have not upgraded to the new Windows versions as I'm holding onto the prospect of a Linux + Vulkan API to get away from Microsoft for good.
  15. In the same boat pal. Although eventually I gave up and decided to connect my ledger wallet to the XRP-toolkit but it turns out the latest ledger live desktop app is only supported on windows 8 and above. I have Windows 7 as I'm still holding for a Linux + Vulkan API (hate Microsoft and DirectX). So that route to claim my tokens using the ledger wallet is closed. I'll be moving my stuff to Bitrue for the snapshot and once done, I'll just move them back. This is unnecessary stress and there's nothing wrong with bitrue as you are not leaving your XRP stash on their for the long term, its ju
