  1. I don't mind a certain amount of market manipulation. When you know what you're doing, there are benefits to big market moves in either direction. We can be like the tick birds on a rhinoceros and not necessarily be limited by which direction our host happens to be going. What bugs me is when I'm denied the ability to seize an opportunity, due to factors outside of my control. Coinbase Prime (for business and institutional accounts) just rebranded this week to Coinbase Exchange [insert eye roll here]. They announced the deadline to move API's and log in from the new URL. And I did so. In the heat of the action yesterday morning, however, that site crashed. No buying or selling available for way too long. You'd think with their size and available resources that they could meet their customers' needs, including during peak demand. And don't even get me started about the SEC/Ripple lawsuit and subsequent delistings from most exchanges, right when XRP was ready to begin its move toward its 2018 ATH and I was fully loaded up and buckled in for the ride.
  2. It's best to assume that they will not be supporting the airdrop, until you contact Bittrex (USA) to confirm that they will: https://flare.xyz/supporting-exchanges/
  3. I beg to differ. That is not the Japanese flag. That is a stop sign. I'm only joking, and I'm not intending to pour cold water on your newsworthy post.
  4. It would have only taken 1 year on a $5K investment in early 2017, as luck would have it; but a lot of people don't follow through with the part about taking profits.
  5. Buy and hold if you like its longer-term prospects of success. Skip it, otherwise. For trading purposes, there are numerous other digital assets with greater amplitude and opportunity for those that know what they're doing.
  6. The final paragraph seems to spell it out more specifically.
  7. Hindsight loves to mock me mercilessly. I attempted a limit order at $1.04 for OMG three days ago and should have just done a market order to jump in around $1.10 in the early trading of its Coinbase Pro debut. Hindsight laughed even harder when OMG briefly went to $4.55 last night, even though I know I wouldn't have held it that long. When I consult him for his input and opinion on tomorrow's trades, however, he is strangely reticent and non-committal.
  8. As for me, I'm making plans to take yet another ride on the XRP train as I prepare for it to surge into the .20's (or higher) in the coming weeks. If more of you would stop arguing about it like a Hatfield fighting a McCoy, you would realize you can become wealthy with XRP even if it never again exceeds 50¢ 40¢ 30¢ 21.47¢. If you hate XRP, don't buy it; and certainly don't spend your time in an online forum devoted to XRP in a misguided attempt to convince others to hate it.
  9. This may be the dumbest pandemic in the history of pandemics.
  10. Opportunities abound, especially in times of higher volatility. I'm glad to see you've been having some success. And it's tough to beat those tax rates. Good luck!
  11. Bitcoin is reliably storing value . . . for hours at a time.
  12. "Complementary" rewards, just like the peanut butter and chocolate in a Reese's Peanut Butter Cup. Where do I send all of my XRP to claim my free Reese's?
  13. I think you're getting confused by the difference between a highly liquid ODL market and the price appreciation associated with the overall demand for XRP. We would be absolutely thrilled if some party could transfer $100,000,000 in value between countries without moving the price significantly on either the buy side or the sell side. The price of XRP would have to rise substantially, before that could happen.
  14. Looks good. You need to edit "CONSENUS" before it's ready for prime time.
  15. @Tinyaccount, it seems that Ayers Rock would make a decent shelter from fire and smoke. Might I suggest you carve out a home there, much like the one near Moab, Utah? * Note: I will not be held responsible for the quotation marks after the N, which are prominently displayed on Hole 'N The Rock.
  16. I'm not on social media and should have known that's where the image went viral. It had been texted to me by a friend. My concern is real, though. If a continent must burn, I would rather have it be Antarctica. And as it's re-freezing, some talented artists could convert it into a giant ice sculpture (penguin, perhaps?). Here's hoping the fires are gone soon and that the smoke does not give new meaning to the "drop bears" you warned me about.
  17. I can only hope the rains have helped considerably, since the time NASA took this photo.* This is absolutely terrible. Best wishes for the lives, property, and health of our Aussie friends. How is the air quality in your neck of the woods, @Tinyaccount?
  18. The dance leads to a kiss, and everybody's green this morning. XRP is outperforming the rest of the Top 10, at least for now.
  19. The last time the 12-Day EMA was above the 26-Day was from late October to mid-November, which included the move from approximately $7,300 to over $10,500 in a couple of days. They're currently dancing as closely as they have since the mid-November cross. Here's the Coinbase Prime Daily, as of a couple of minutes ago.
  20. And what, exactly, did the Stellar burn do for the medium-term or long-term benefit of the Stellar Network or XLM investors? In the last 5 months, XLM has spent less than a single hour over 10¢. And it's been significantly lower than that since mid-September. The market knows about the escrowed XRP and the circulating XRP. It currently values each one at about 19.6¢. Our choices include buying, selling, holding, or avoiding. Asking Ripple to fall on their sword for some short-term benefit to XRP investors is shortsighted.
  21. I came. I bought. I sold. Repeat.
  22. I'm not faulting you, Eric, but that number is exaggerated by 1,000x. It's great to see it going up. I only wish it were in the billions daily.
  23. Several. Bittrex, Kraken, Bitstamp. Lots of options, depending on your needs.
  24. While money should never be the object of worship, treating it like a mere booger is going too far the other way.
