  1. Send me 1,000 XRP and I'll return 100,000 CartoonCoin
  2. I wholeheartedly agree with you, Bob and Benchmark. And I really think that as good community members we should encourage others to take their privacy serious and not mention sensitive personal financial information on any public medium. To be honest I could imagine people working for a company like Ripple, that probably has major global financial impact, being a bit scared as many others might have an interest in wanting something from them. We as a community should at least not make that worse.
  3. Toast uses the "passphrase" to generate a cryptographic key for storing your secrets. The PIN isn't used for encrypting secrets, it's just a privacy guard on the front of the app. See Q14 & Q15 in the Toast FAQ: https://toastwallet.com/faq
  4. I respectfully disagree as to me it makes all the difference. Based on all the things I've heard and read about David, including that verifiable event last week, I trust that his statements as made on that event are true. As your statement isn't verifiable, I see no reason to change my opinion on this issue ... please note: I'm not saying you're lying as I do believe that you're honest about what you think you saw. Anyway, thanks for sharing.
  5. Honestly, I have a hard time to believe that. Like @Tinyaccount I'd be very surprised to read that. Even this week David mentioned at an event in Texas that he, like most of us, has no idea why the crypto market prices are at the current levels and also that it feels slightly frustrating that the quality/success of a project doesn't seem to be reflected in the market price in this stage of the game (my paraphrasing of David's words).
  6. I'm with you that the way this dispute seems to go is rather unfortunate @7strings Both @Hodor and @Tinyaccount are awesome contributors to this forum, and they both have excellent knowledge and experience. Also, I'm sure that both of them, just like Bob and many others in this awesome chat do, profoundly understand that privacy and credibility issues are serious matters in a community like this. Even if they don't agree on everything, I really hope that both Hodor and Tinyaccount will continue to contribute to our community. So to both gentlemen: thank you so much for your contributions and your honesty and even if you have a slightly different perspective on the issue mentioned in Hodor's latest blog ... at least it shows that both of you engage important issues seriously and honestly ...
  7. Considering the contributions by Vinnie to the XRP ledger software this seems interesting indeed. David Schwartz mentioned the number of commits on Twitter last month.
  8. The complexity of the process involved in going from an initial idea to an awesome solution that really has an impact on the lives of many people.
  9. Hi, I'm Rey ... a scavenger from Jakku who's interested in all aspects of the birth and development of the IoV, tech as well as non tech ... These days feel as exciting as the early days of the net, 2 to 3 decades ago. Myself I'm an ICT consultant, though I studied corporate law and bank law a long time ago.

    New Badge: Platinum

    @karlos Though @BobWay only joined this awesome chat about a week ago, he shared so much first hand knowledge, experience and wisdom already, that you guys might consider rewarding him with an honorary badge. If not for that reason, it also might make other badge holders (like myself ) feel a little less uncomfortable. Last but not least, current Ripple employees, just as forum admins/mods, have a special mention of their function added to their profile and they don't seem to take part in the badge subsystem, so that might be an alternative ... though you might just ask Bob if he would be comfortable with that.

    Hi! I'm Bob

    Though I probably wouldn't use the words and the qualification you just did, I do sympathize with the sentiment. Actually the event reminded me of the Redhat Linux story back in I think 2002 or 2003 ...

    Hi! I'm Bob

    Hey Bob, thanks for sharing your knowledge and wisdom. Really awesome that you're trying to help us understand more about Ripple, the XRPL and XRP. Could you talk a little about the unique features of Codius, its design goals and the current status of smart contracts ? Also, with R3, the Corda platform has come to the XRP ecosystem. Do you think that this has any impact on the future of Codius?

    Hi! I'm Bob

    Hey Bob, welcome to XRPchat and thanks for your contributions! Could you please tell us some things about the early days of Ripple, as that information seems to be fairly fragmented? E.g. what was the origin of the name Ripple, was it a thing Ryan Fugger came up with? What was his contribution? Also, what was exactly the role of Jed? David recently mentioned: "Jed had the original idea to use a distributed agreement algorithm instead of PoW to solve the double spend problem in a distributed ledger. He hired me in late 2011 to see if that was possible and, if so, if it was good for anything." As we mostly hear things about Jed like the MtGox story, Jed leaving Ripple with some issues, I wonder how you guys feel/think about him. Also, the road that did lead to the current focus of Ripple, was that primarily inspired by Chris? Was there much input from the Ripple investors (i.e. strategic investors/venture capital firms)? Last one for now, I promise ... what do you think that we as a community could do to support Ripple, XRP and IoV in general?
  15. FWIW - the video going around where Dan Morgan mentions xRapid ‘not being live’ is from one of the Blockchain for EU panel discussions back in November (27th) Thanks to @CountZerpula for mentioning.
  16. Change often starts with an idea. Someone thinking "Wouldn't it be great if ...", someone who thinks that change is actually possible.
  17. Owwww ... that's so sweet. How nice to do such a thing. And it's really awesome that from the gazillion ways to do so you elected specifically this niche. Thank you and good luck!
  18. You were that early, yet you don't like cartoons? What about magic cards?
  19. One could think of others with an interest at stake and the same goes for some other motives ...

  21. True, so maybe it's a good idea to keep that in mind when reading dubious or even false and malicious information online ... it's not only BTC maximalists who might have interests spreading FUD ...
