  1. hahah they won't learn.. When I told my friends it might be a good time to buy they hadn't. Now that we have seen these gains they are asking me how to get started.
  2. I see 2 stories for us future grandpa's/grandma's: 1. It's 2050, you sold XRP at 31cents in 2019. Future grandkid: 'Grandpa, mom told me you owned digital assets even before they replaced all other currencies. What did you do with them?' Grandpa: Well kid, I remember it like it was yesterday.. The entire cryptomarket was on it's butt. We had a bad really bad year in 2018, and when 2019 started it didn't get much better. That is when I decided to give up and sell it all.' Future grandkid: 'What happened? Did all developments stop? Grandpa: 'Hmm, not really. Crypto just wasn't perfoming price-wise. Institutions and governments around the world were just getting started in crypto.' Future grandkid: 'So you sold because prices were low when the true potential of this new asset class was just being discovered?' Grandpa: 'sigh' 2. It's 2050, you invested all your spare change in XRP as long as it was under a dollar. Future grandkid: 'Grandpa, mom just showed me how to look into the XRP ledger. You won't believe what I found. It's your very first XRP purchase back in 2018. I can't believe you bought it under a dollar!' Grandpa: Well kid, I remember it like it was yesterday.. The entire cryptomarket was on it's butt. We had a bad really bad year in 2018, and when 2019 started it didn't get much better. Though I understood this was the opportunity of a lifetime.' Future grandkid: 'Wow, that's cool. Wasn't it hard to hodl through al these years? Grandpa: 'Hmm, not really. Crypto just wasn't perfoming price-wise. Institutions and governments around the world were just getting started in crypto.' Future grandkid: 'So you bought because prices were low when the true potential of this new asset class was just being discovered?' Grandpa: 'sigh' yeah it was bold.. Which grandpa do you want to be? I know which one I will be.. I've got patience. 5 years? Cool I'm 28 by then. 10 years? 33yo is fine for me. Most of us have been in crypto for less then 2 years, is that all the patience you have got?
  3. https://s22127.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/2018/12/fin-fed-real-time-payments-docket-op-1625-final.pdf In a letter from FIN to the Federal Reserve they state that other countries are ahead of the US, urging the FED's to hurry up. Interesting indeed! 'The Federal Reserve should encourage accessibility of a future RTGS system and promote Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) as a means to enhance adoption of bank and non-bank payment systems utilizing a future RTGS system. Industry technology solutions that improve the efficiency of system accessibility through secure connection paths, such as APIs, will serve as a catalyst for broader and faster industry adoption of interoperable technology solutions. The Federal Reserve should develop a real-time system with interoperability in mind, but should not have the burden of solving for all interoperability questions before implementation of a RTGS system. FIN companies operate payment systems globally; a RTGS system offered by the Federal Reserve will be more consistent with other jurisdictions. Furthermore, given that other nations are ahead of the United States, FIN urges the Federal Reserve to consider U.S. competitiveness as a critical justification for action. We are at risk of falling behind as other nations are already realizing the economic and social benefits of real-time payments.'
  4. Sorry to hear that.. Did you buy it through an official reseller (probably not as you talk about his name)? I hope you had to configure it yourself? It should come without PIN configured
  5. Hahah I was just checking back on the same 😂 https://www.google.nl/amp/s/nieuws.btcdirect.eu/abn-amro-franx-ripple/amp/
  6. If I remember correctly, they just cut down their overhead costs and lowered their margins. No Ripple involved as far as is know
  7. Have you looked into the miner stocks? Personally I own stocks in several gold/silver mines. If you are looking for the big gains (and risk), look at junior miners specifically.
  8. It probably won't just be selling pressure at that level. With XRP shooting up in value there would probably be new money coming in to. Plus, with them announcing this the run up wouldn't be instant. In the month I gave as an example, the price would already be rising. Perhaps it will be a longer period to make sure it's more organic to keep XRP more liquid? Market makers play a very important role in the network. They also can design algorithms to provide the liquidity when demanded. I see your point, though I think it might work out..
  9. This is what I was thinking.. What if they are just waiting for the decision on whether XRP is a security or not. Just imagine an announcement being made by Ripple stating: To maximize efficiency, by the end of this month we will (together with our partners) establish a value of 20$/XRP. Market makers will make sure spreads remain low and sufficient liquidity is provided.
  10. Usually I don't go into the nostro/vostro explanation, especially if they don't even know there are more crypto's than just Bitcoin. Using examples is key to make people understand. For example, I often tell them about the struggle that comes with sending money to our family outside of the EU. Then I show them how much quicker and cheaper these new technologies are. Am I the only one who gets overly excited when talking about this?? haha
  11. This reminds me of november last year. We had several sell-offs like this one. We can go from this looong bear market into a bull market in a matter of weeks. This time we are even in a better position against ETH and BTC.
  12. Bitflip is a mess. 500 of my babies are still in there 😢 Do you also have coins stuck there?
