  1. Hey Dymac nice to see your valuable opinions -- we all know its super easy to make unfounded claims btw Miguel didn't disappear
  2. while i overall agree with you, i don't think that people who are falling for the nonsense written here or on ripple-reddit recently are really moving the needle on XRP's price
  3. Totally agree -- and to be honest, XRPChat and reddit getting more and more the same characteristics recently
  4. XRP pumped on 3 or 4 days in one week -- always started at the exact same time -- i don`t think this was caused by FOMO on the last day, however, XRP went crazy and more than doubled in 24h -- surely some FOMO`d in at this point
  5. after a quick search i found this tweet linked on their homepage (scroll down to social media" https://www.tcs.com/bancs and this is from the PDF linked in above article "Cross border remittances leveraging DLT based ecosystems The Quartz Cross Border Remittances solution enables banks/payments systems to connect to newer DLT based payment infrastructures (like RippleNet) for processing of Cross border FX remittance transactions. The Quartz Gateway seamlessly connects the TCS BaNCS Payments system to the blockchain based Payments platform using APIs, and supports services related to FX Quote finalization and debit/credit of beneficiary accounts. Leveraging this approach, existing/core systems operational at banks/ other payment institutions need not undergo changes in connecting to the blockchain platform, as this complexity is absorbed by the Quartz Gateway."

  7. I highlighted all the wrong assumptions you`ve made -- please DYOR on those matters
  8. oh ripple is still focused on its main use case - this is exactly what xpring has been meant for - and they are nailing it with this big time IMO they are not just trying to integrate xrp into video games like a lot of shitcoins, as you said, do - they are trying to integrate codius and ILP for cross chain interoperability with xrp for inter-asset liquidity in a big way it seems -- 100 mill fund is just wow this is not compareable with your so called "**** coins" IMO https://medium.com/forte-labs-inc/forging-the-future-of-games-3aebbaf6eccd "Today, we’re following up with multiple new announcements. For the better part of a year, we’ve collaborated closely with Ripple’s Xpring team on architectural designs for trustlessly hosting software services in a decentralized ecosystem using Codius and facilitating cross-chain transactions using Interledger Protocol (ILP) for interoperability and XRP for inter-asset liquidity, all open source projects. We believe these projects offer a strong foundation for a future we’re excited to help game developers build: where game economies offer multi-directional transactions between parties, greater player agency, minimized counterparty risk, multi-network contract interoperability, and trust-minimized computation. We’ve also put together a $100M inaugural fund for game developers with Xpring aimed at bringing these and other core technologies of our blockchain platform to market." "We believe that there’s room to dramatically improve on where we’re at in 2019. We believe greater player agency is a good thing, that transacting value should be a multi-directional affair — with value flowing not just from player-to-publisher, but player-to-player, and publisher-to-player. We believe virtual economies in games can more closely mirror our experience in real economies, and that our ambition as game developers should be to build these economies in a way that maximizes openness and interoperability." "Initially, we’ll help developers with some of the difficult but essential basics. We’re building a wallet that will be easy to use and integrate with both new and existing games on many platforms and facilitate cross-chain transactions using Interledger. We’re building a container-based hosting solution compatible with the Codius specification for running game-specific chains and flexible, secure, performant computation that rich, engaging games need. We’re building a security-audited smart contract framework and tools to inspect nodes, update contracts, reconcile new data, generate data reports, and mint new chains. We’re securing licenses for regulatory compliant operations in all major markets. We’re offering market-making services to address cold start economic challenges in new game economies. We’re building a white-label marketplace framework with embeddable filter-by-game views. We’re composing these solutions based on a deep evaluation of public blockchains, layer 2 solutions, and off chain computation in combination with our own substantial research and development efforts." "We’re currently working with a select handful of partners to apply these platform technologies and tools to games today and anticipate opening them up to the industry broadly on an aggressive timeline." Danny Aranda https://medium.com/xpring/partnering-with-forte-44b6d3304bbb "At Xpring, our core belief is that crypto presents an opportunity to realign interests and incentives of marketplaces of all types, including between gamers and developers. The potential is that, by using crypto, the unidirectional relationship (developer sells virtual item to user) can evolve into something radically more powerful: fully functioning peer-to-peer economies where users are primary and active participants. Forte’s platform design aligns well with where crypto is headed, with a sharded, application-specific architecture and coherent protocol-based abstractions for cross-chain interactions. Towards this, we’ve worked with the Forte team from early on to deeply embed Interledger, Codius and XRP in the platform architecture to maximize cross-chain interoperability, security and liquidity. With this technical foundation bundled other core technologies, tools, and easy-to-use services, Forte is building one of the most exciting platforms that will enable developers to reach mass consumer audiences. We have continually been impressed by the Forte team. With backgrounds from Kabam, GarageGames, Unity and others important companies, they have been leaders in transforming the gaming industry."
  9. I'm fairly certain that Ripple would not drive this kind of funding through Xpring without these companies clearly working on some kind of integration of XRP and/or Coil support for their respective platform or game(s). I'm also pretty sure Ripple wouldn't put these kinds of offerings in place without making sure through explicit contract language to avoid any chance of "dumping" price action. Either they are limited in selling to OTC only or are likely restricted to exchange sales with a maximum distribution per day/week/month whatever Ripple wants to put in place for market liquidity protection. https://medium.com/forte-labs-inc/forging-the-future-of-games-3aebbaf6eccd "Today, we’re following up with multiple new announcements.
