  1. Interesting article hit the Australian press today... ASX sells stake in IRESS as move from CHESS to distributed ledger technology advances. No mention of XRP specifically, but there is mention of instant settlement. Time will tell. https://smallcaps.com.au/asx-sells-stake-iress-chess-blockchain-distributed-ledger-technology/
  2. I think most browsers, if not all, will be interoperable with ILP soon enough thanks to the new W3C Payment Handler API... https://www.w3.org/Payments/WG/
  3. now 4... here we go!!! FYI, I tried my first withdrawal ($5k) from BTC Markets to UBank the other day... worked a treat, no delays and no bank issues.
  4. Plan A... 18% @ $54 = early retirement Plan B... cash out and load up more if there's a boom/bust cycle first
  5. As I understand it, Corda settler is R3s equivalent to xrapid... and can use XRP directly (no xrapid required) as the bridging asset for cross-currency settlement.
  6. Swift integration with R3 Corda Settler... reduces competition + gains exposure to entire Swift customer base. Beautiful!
  7. Great topic, and some really insightful responses. My view... central banks will generally move to issue a CBDC in their market and secure participation from domestic banks, small and large. This will take time. XRP is positioned well then as the bridge asset of choice globally. Incumbent players may issue their own coin/token initially, where a central bank is slow moving, in an effort to retain control and relevance, but I see this as a selfish solution that benefits the few, and likely won't survive beyond 3-5 years due to market competition and (typically) government desire to encourage fair markets and improved outcomes for citizens.
  8. They're tax havens - lots of companies and HNW individuals base their operations there for favourable tax treatment
  9. I don't suppose he introduced himself as Art, Arty or AB?
  10. What makes you say that? I think the family resemblance with his Dad is pretty clear.
  11. I was intrigued by yesterday's DAI video 'Who is Arthur Britto?', so did some amateur sleuthing. I left the breadcrumbs and links in a comment on his video. I'm fairly sure Arthur is the guy on the left in this ripple team photo from 2014. https://m.facebook.com/ripplepay/photos/a.565977803515909/567686226678400/?type=3&theater Mystery solved?
  12. I wouldn't be surprised to find Ripple have reached some kind of deal with Swift... much like when Ripple's top lawyer parted ways having stitched up the R3 settlement.
  13. I think the introduction of CBDCs (XRP-based or otherwise) is a great thing, as it will likely lead the IMF to support/endorse XRP as the global bridging asset of choice. I may have it wrong, but wasn't this the exact scenario conservatively suggested by IMF Deputy General Counsel Leckow onstage with Brad Garlinghouse at the Singapore Fintech Festival? #XRPthebridge
