  1. Constantly sifting through all the minutiae in every news story will drive you mad. One of two things happen.....you'll worry about things that aren't there or become hypercritical and pick apart everything that is posted on the topic. Neither of which will affect the outcome.
  2. There is a beautiful saying amongst the Irish peasantry to inspire hope under adverse circumstances:- "Remember," they say, "that the darkest hour of all. is the hour before day." https://www.phrases.org.uk/meanings/darkest-hour-is-just-before-the-dawn.html
  3. In 1914 the entire world was thrown in to a conflict the likes of which civilization had not witnessed before. The turn of the century industrialization age offered new technologies to mankind which changed warfare indefinitely creating a huge learning curve out of necessity. French soldiers entered the European conflict riding horses wearing no helmets and wearing bright red Napoleonic uniforms making them virtual moving bulls eyes for German machine gunners. By the end of 1918 newly developed tanks traversed the battle field which were a direct response to the new machine gun and artiller
  4. Interesting how suddenly there are these articles being written the month before US exchanges go online.
  5. The evolution of Las Vegas as a city is fascinating to me as it seems to exist on its own plane of reality. The fact that it’s located in a hostile location geographically and really only existed in part to the railroad and now is the 28th largest city is astonishing. Add in the colorful mafia characters, rat packs and Howard Hughes and you have a great comic book series at the minimum. A perfect brew of American greed and the wild west. If someone were wanting to purchase land in the Las Vegas area in 1960 most would have considered it insane, however, to do so would have reaped massi
  6. Most recently I’ve heard many different descriptions of the down trend the crypto markets are experiencing and I’ve noticed some very interesting behavior. First off as a futures trader and investor I’ve been witness to many downtrends in a variety of markets. Markets change over time which is very much like the seasons but without the comforting predictability. I personally think of these down trends as draughts in the market which can cause an exorbitant amount of stress on the people participating in it. It’s interesting to observe how other species such as Chimpanzee’s react to thi
  7. There are a few questions that have been hovering in my head recently that I'd like some perspective on from the XRPchat throbbing brain. First regarding the Bakkt delay and if this is a good thing long term. I'm surprised at my ambivalence about the delay announcement which feels very much like the "who cares" attitude regarding the coin base soap opera. For well over a year now it seems Ripple has been chumming the waters with an onslaught of positive news surrounding the launch of new products and a series of partnerships. By delaying this implementation gives Ripple the opportunity
  8. This has an exhaustion gap feel to it. Time will tell as always.
  9. Thank you for the very concise description. Definitely provides some clarity. Have you had any thoughts on the impact over time the nostro/vostro accounts would have by switching to an instant settlement solution. I assume banks would no longer have a need to have large sums in these accounts, therefore, what impact would this have economically?
  10. Wondering about the Topology Network which I check randomly to avoid working. https://xrpcharts.ripple.com/#/topology When looking at it today which notice the update of 1.1.0 it doesn't appear as though there are any nodes represented. Has anyone any info on this and is this normal or is there maintenance going. Thanks for the info and to all of you who provide information.
  11. When I saw this post I was anxiously awaiting the swarm of entertaining responses. Damn I'll miss this someday.
  12. I'm wondering if I've just become exceptionally skeptical or is the disinformation and misdirection coming from JP Morgan, Goldman completely obvious.
  13. I transferred some Ethereum from Coinbase to Binance and it took about an hour. During that time binance failed to load which got me a little puckered but it eventually hit my account and I was able to make a final XRP purchase with my funds. It's a little worrisome if binance has trouble with that amount of volume when it could be significantly larger in the weeks ahead.
  14. Interesting how there's been talk of a JP Morgan and Ripple partnership and now Satis who also has a relationship with JP Morgan issues a negative report on Ripple.
