  1. Are you sure that you weren't told a made up story by someone who wanted to make fun of you? ... Since in April 2017 Ripple wasn't OpenCoin and XRP wasn't OpenShares ...
  2. If you want to know more about this, read the documentation about the consensus protocol used by the XRPL ... You can find that information at https://xrpl.org/intro-to-consensus.html
  3. Indeed is the value of the SDR calculated based on the rate of a basket of existing currencies. To peg a digital asset to those currencies would introduce just another 'stablecoin' ... How could XRP, if being used as a bridge currency as you described have some price stability ... that could be if it is traded as a forex currency, so very high volume, high liquidity, low spread ... how to get there is an interesting issue ...
  4. The SDR is the unit of account for the IMF, and is not a currency per se ...while XRP is targeted as a bridge currency ... "One of the XRP Ledger's most powerful features is the native ability to use XRP as a bridge currency on a decentralized exchange, whether for trades or for cross-currency payments." -- David Schwartz https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special_drawing_rights
  5. Rest in peace @P3T3RIS My condolences to family and friends.
  6. ... still decoding TickTock ...
  7. The answer to your questions wrt Casinocoin (CSC) might be found at the Casinocoin forum https://www.cscchat.com/ or the CSC website https://casinocoin.org/
  8. Hey Timeslot, I hope you're OK. Cheers
  9. Timeslot or Johns NO ...
  10. LOL, that's almost the same as my stash, though I don't have BAT yet ...
  11. Hey @Harishka Welcome to XRPchat! Nice story, I also love the work by Frank Herbert Can you tell us what assets you like besides XRP? Cheers and have fun
  12. Send me 1,000 XRP and I'll return 100,000 CartoonCoin
  13. 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.
  14. 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
  15. 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.
  16. 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).
  17. 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 ...
  18. 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.
  19. 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.
  20. 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 ...
