XRPboi's Achievements

  1. Great points, but all of the companies you listed serve as central authorities of each network; none are open source. What ever happened to the founder's original plan to distribute 50%+ of the token supply to the user community/as widely as possible? 2013: "Of those, around 55 billion will be given away in some form or other." 2013: "To give the new currency momentum, OpenCoin plans eventually to give away 75% of the supply." 2013: "Ripple CEO Chris Larsen says in a phone interview. OpenCoin intends to give away over 55 billion XRP through their various giveaways, and the rest of the Ripple credits the company will use to fund development and promotion of the Ripple system." 2014: "Ripple has said that it plans to give away 50 percent of XRPs to the user community."
  2. If this is accurate, shouldn't liftoff have occured already?
  3. When creating an IOU like this, how do you back them with local currency?
  4. Seems noteworthy that "Ripple On-Demand Liquidity" does not have a 'First Use" date listed.
  5. The wallets of the escrow releases can change ownership at any time without funds needing to be moved. I think the large escrow could be set up to give citizens some type of UBI for the foreseeable future, directly into their new digital Fed wallet. The 'Digital Dollar' won't be XRP - it will likely be an issued currency on the XRPL. Businesses and individuals generate utility for the asset, which raises the long-term value, which benefits the people directly each month through a "Freedom Dividend" that is funded through the consistent escrow release. Just a thought
  6. Who/what exactly are you referring to here?
  7. https://www.coindesk.com/the-us-should-use-stablecoins-for-emergency-coronavirus-payments Catherine Coley seems to agree 🤔
  8. Hey @Eric123 I have been off the forum for a while. I guess we were off quite a bit with our BTC and XRP calls in November and December, eh?
  9. I have the app (updated) and I don't see XRP available on any of the pages..
  10. Didn't BTC hit $10k+ and ETH hit $1,200+ without any 'regulatory clarity' of any sort? Neither of them have a team of 300+ and a full legal staff from Washington on payroll. These are the things that confuse me in this space..
  11. I see he outlined everything he'd like to expand on. Has all of this been elaborated on in the meantime (outside of what is listed in that thread)? I'd love to read more about all of that
  12. I completely agree - it wouldn't be the first time we've heard empty promises (caused by real delays or not). I suppose you don't agree much with the following posts? Lastly, Ben Sharafian recently posted a blog detailing how Interledger will be 'Open' sometime in 2020 for access (for companies, wallets, etc.). https://coil.com/p/sharafian/Interledger-2020-Access/ddUXfDobj I try to separate hype from reality, but I think it is also beneficial to set accurate expectations of the next 12-24 months ahead. I am interested in hearing your take on all of this.
