  1. It's been awhile since I've spent much time in the main forum, after it got flooded with sewage. But this thread has been exceptional (even the off-topic discussions). Thanks to everyone involved! One of the reasons I've been so taken by crypto (and XRP in particular) is the exposure to people who are extremely intelligent.
  2. I promised an update on the planetree from around the 4th of July, and here it is. (Yes, I gave up on the yard after several years of unsuccessful battles. I'll be xeriscaping it over the next year). Mostly I'm bummed that @dr_ed and @XRPto50dollars are MIA, but I hope they're happy and healthy. Take care, anyone here, and I'll see you next year!
  3. Hi @tar - any worthwhile update on your analysis? Cheers, and hopefully you and yours are safe and doing well.
  4. Awesome, and well done, @Lumpy. My thoughts: First and foremost, some of the larger implications of your topic go untouched. What would the effects of a larger surveillance state be, both good and bad? How do privacy coins counteract those effects? How about the criticisms against privacy coins (enabling illegal activity, undercutting institutional authority, etc.). You did a commendable job of keeping yourself out of the argument. Obviously you probably have your own developed opinions and thoughts, but you allow the reader to weigh your evidence on their own. Makes you more credible. The middle section gets a little loose. I wasn't able to clearly follow your connections between the value of privacy in monetary transactions and the Nick Bostrom paragraphs. I'll leave my comments at that because I don't want to discourage you. There's a good start here, and your efforts are appreciated. Again, well done, and keep it up.
  5. Man, Molten deleted his account. And Dr Ed has been MIA for months now as well... True bummer. But I can understand why. The trolls in here are outrageous. I hope they're getting paid well, just to tear down the well-intentioned work of others. Ed, Molten, hope you're both doing great if you ever read this. And **** the trolls.
  6. FYI, he bailed on the forum because he was tired of fighting trolls. He still very much believes in XRP. Not gonna lie, the general forum is almost completely useless and toxic for your average user. I almost exclusively visit the Zerpening now, and the quality there is also dropping... Everyone stay healthy, stay grounded and stick around. The good times are still ahead.
  7. What type of impact does this have on your overall analysis? Is your wave setup invalidated?
  8. I imagine that regulatory clarity has to be in place in order for the full offering to be available. If any DA is labeled a security, the entire process flow will have to work differently for that particular asset. Also, does this blur into FI activitiy? Etc. etc... But I'm super excited about custody solutions making progress - besides the obvious benefits of enabling institutional-level participants, I'm tired of relying on my dumb human self to protect my zerps.
  9. The link you're using applies only to cold-storage wallets in BitGo's possession, and in the event of an issue, only Celsius Network itself would be covered. Individual depositors on Celsius Network have no protection and would have little to no recourse. I agree, DYOR and do it right. I'm done arguing with shills.
  10. Incorrect. Not trying to be combative, but spreading disinformation like that, knowingly or not, puts people's investments at risk. As always, DYOR. From Celsius Network's own site.
  11. For those that are interested in joining the Zerpening (like @WhtSno), send a DM to @RegalChicken (possibly others but I'm not sure exactly who). They'll take a look at your profile and as long as you have a history of being positive and/or posting in good faith, I'd hope they add you. No guarantees though.
  12. Ha! The day I post something truly helpful and insightful will be the first. I'm a student here, learning from y'all. That said, I have a heikin ashi weekly chart I built with some inspiration from @XRPto50dollars, but it would strictly be for comic relief. Maybe one of these days I'll share it.
  13. To follow up on @Truckdriver and @Plikk, the Zerpening is really the best (and some days only) reason to log into xrpchat. The members there believe in XRP but have a healthy skepticism and desire to back up their passion with evidence. Also, they have a great sense of self-effacing humor (you gotta laugh to keep from crying). Oh, and they kicked out Moonraker for being a negative ***** with nothing of value to add. So you know it's legit. So if you've gotten an invite (or want to request one), I recommend it. Even if you just lurk, like I do. That said, much love to the regular posters here, who have the guts to put their own opinions up for group discussion, even when they get endless crap from idiots. @dr_ed, @Eric123, @Molten, and many others. It's appreciated.
  14. Growing up in the US Rocky Mountains, I would spend a lot of time hiking with my family, especially my mom. As a snot-nosed little brat, I would often complain about how long the hike was, and like every kid, ask how many miles were left. She taught me a trick (or rather, she played a trick on me) that has stuck with me my entire life - whenever I asked how many miles were left, she would give me an answer that she knew was longer than the truth. And every time we arrived back at the trailhead "early", I would be thrilled. Now, I pull the same mental trick on myself anytime I'm enduring anything. All that's to say, I can't wait for the bull market to go parabolic in 2023...
