  1. Not coins, dollars. Who do you think everyone who has been DCA'ing for the past two years has been buying from? With the halvening coming up, the giant Ponsi scheme that is crypto is getting rolling. Time to turn that money into coins again to offload on everyone who comes late to the party. I'm only concerned there are more of us waiting this time to partake. I'm uncertain if we just barely get back to ATH before dropping, or if we shoot past it. Time will tell.
  2. Should have used ETH to make your point. It's up 53% in the last 4 weeks compared to XRPs 25%. I'm confident this rise has nothing to do with utility.
  3. Jokes on them, you'll be 20 cents richer when XRP hits $589
  4. Great, I have no doubt that Ripple is working with these groups and is indeed helping to lay the foundation for how financial transactions are managed in the future. But this is because of their role with the development of ILP. What about XRP? Nothing here suggests to me that XRP is playing any role in FIGI or the overall UFA2020 initiatives. I find it much more likely that the end state will be several sovereign coins unified through ILP. Countries probably like their walled gardens. Am I missing something?
  5. Libra, JPMC, USC... seems something is missing. I continue to see Ripple working with all of these companies, but mainly in the ILP tools category. I'm not seeing anything promising about XRP itself. Maybe I'm missing something.
  6. Devil's advocate; What if you were unsure this XRP thing had a future (who knows, maybe due to some kind of upcoming regulation.) If your biggest asset could at sometime decrease greatly and rapidly, but you still have a successful business model for building fintech tools (messaging, ILP bridges, ect...), wouldn't you consider not relying on the XRP and look for stable investment money instead?
  7. How do you predict the pattern of value in something that has no inherent value. It's as much art as it is science. I have seen no one get it completely correct, but I have seen @Molten call far more correct patterns than most. Unlike your comment, I find his insightful and valuable. Let me remind you that this is the price and speculation group, created specifically for short and long term discussions/speculations on price. If you have nothing to contribute to such a discussion except for the mockery of others, I kindly ask you to unsubscribe.
  8. These predictions look nice on paper, but do you really believe there will be enough new investment money to support attaining such levels? I feel like it's possible we may see a new ath, but if we do, it won't be much higher than the previous ath. I mean, when you zoom out over the last 10 years there is definitely a logirithimic curve to the market growth. Couple that with the general populace shift of seeing BTC as a mysterious and interesting potential to an environment destroying manipulated scam coin that burned them in 2018 and well, you get my point. All that said, human greed does continue to surprise me.
  9. I doubt it. You invest in gold for stability in uncertain times. Presently, BTC's stability and certainty is far less than the dollar or gold.
  10. So the only reliable reference I see to this is a tweet from Brad claiming he spoke with Mnuchin. Of course, knowing Brad's tendency to spin things, we do not know if "spoke" means in person, in the phone, or he sent him an email. As for the meeting with Clayton, Clayton wouldn't be doing his job if he didn't meet with the CEO of the largest company utilizing crypto. The SEC has been tasked with regulating crypto. If he's doing his job correctly, he needs to recognize and protect the value of crypto while implementing regulation that prevent it's abuse. The point is, these meetings are likely not indicators of some top secret scheme to change the world financial system through XRP. It's simply a company lobbying regulators to ensure crypto doesn't get over regulated in the US. At the end of the day, do you really think the US government is capable/competent enough to make any kind of large change to any system, let alone the banking system? Take off your Tim foil hat, turn off your TV. Change may one day come, but it's decades away, and it won't be driven by the government.
  11. Well so far we have seen little to no interest by banks and FI's to utilize XRP on their own. Any progress XRP has made towards facilitating cross border remittances has been the direct result of Ripple. I'm fairly confident with out Ripple backing it, XRP would just become another useless crypto currency. Ripple doesn't need XRP, but XRP definitely needs Ripple, or at least some sort of well organized, funded, and connected organization, to see it reach it's potential.
  12. I must be getting old, not sure how I ended up at vetchat.com
  13. Well, it might be time to follow Alex Holmes lead and not hold XRP. Plans rarely materialize as they were originally conceived when they are executed over vast amounts of time.
