  1. That driver is John Romero, he pretty much invented the first person shooter gaming genre. He is a bit of a rock star in the industry. This is a software developer conference, it's not going to look wall street at all. As a developer myself, I recognize many of these speakers. They are big names in the industry.
  2. Correct me if I'm wrong, but with the ever increasing circulating supply, a 2017-like bull run will continue to grow harder to recreate.
  3. 1$ Do we ever reach it or not? Thoughts?
  4. I guess you are right. I apologize, I've spent too much time reading Reddit and Twitter. It's sometimes hard to differentiate the sarcasm from those being serious. I'll try not to be so quick to jump to conclusions in the future.
  5. No offense, but I'd really like to slap the next person who says this. I think some people give the "whales" to much credit. Yes, crypto is not tied to any real value so it is easier to manipulate than traditional stocks and commodities. Yes, groups will coordinate media campaigns and trigger buy frenzies. But I find it hard to believe that there is some secret whale society (outside possibly Ripple itself) that is controlling the over all long term market. And this "shake out weak hands" BS. I'm sure with about a year and a half of losses, the weak hands are gone.
  6. Wow, such a pessimist. If BTC made it to 20k, XRP could very easily achieve highs of .36 or even possibly .368
  7. Why would he use XRP to pay taxes if he he had any reason to believe they would be more valuable in the near future...
  8. Most of us are hoping XRP will decouple and grow on its own merits. Most of us also realize that could be years from now. Until that happens, we're riding the BTC roller coaster so we should probably keep an eye on where it's going.
  9. Crawl, walk, trip, drag, claim you're further along than you are, stand, limp, walk, run. Got it!
  10. Your definition of "long" appears to differ from mine
  11. Oh yeah, nothing bad ever came from mindlessly following others. Critical thinking is the tool of demons and fudsters. The bear probably does have a lot of information, likely works with many of the crypto/xrp "news" sites. Here is some nice Sunday evening reading for some of you https://tinyurl.com/y5sfkyl7
  12. If you own Ripple, you already are. If you own XRP, well, probably depends on your definition of rich. If you're like those kids posting on YouTube, Twitter, and Reddit, probably never.
  13. ... and the whales start chumming the waters again.
  14. What connections? Most have been over-the-top theories that just because one major institution is working with a ripple partner, their relationship has something to do with XRP. At best, these have turned out to be partnerships that involve the use of xCurrent, but most turn out to be unrelated as financial institutions are large and partner with all sorts of fintech companies for all sorts of varying solutions.
  15. It's not about market cap, its about XRP quantity. I think people fall back to market cap because either 1) they are used to stocks where market cap is used to compare to company financial sheets to determine if current price is over or under valued (meaningless in crypto), or 2) they sense that the quantity of XRP has an affect on the ability of it to rise but rely on market cap (which has volume calculated in) to incorrectly express this. So yes, market cap means nothing in crypto, however total quantity of XRP does.
  16. Google, Yahoo, Twitter... sure they are all household names now, but think about the first time you heard them. Silly non-sense really.
  17. I don't know, my dog, an active member of the dog network with insider information, disagrees. He's probably just a fudster though.
  18. I thought from the Western Union trials that small transaction amounts like that don't really see much benefit in using xRapid. I'm could be mistaken as I'm not very knowledgeable in what caused the WU trials to show (supposed) little to no value in xRapid.
  19. It's kind of like predicting a 589 ton meteor will hit a major city by end of year. Can it happen, yes, but it is so highly improbable that's it's safe to bet it won't happen. If your neighbors were constantly going on about this meteor by the end of year, you'd probably want to correct them to keep them from spreading false hope... er fear. Take some time to learn what it would take to increase the price that high, especially considering the billions of tokens (not millions like btc) being traded. As the price rises, people will want to cash out but what happens when their cumulative tokens are suposedly worth trillions when only billions are entering the market.
  20. So I saw this article on Bloomberg today: https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2018-10-09/bitcoin-on-the-brink-of-an-implosion-researcher-juniper-says. Regardless of whether it is accurate or not, it certainly won't be helping to push the over all markets up. I'm leaning more towards new 2018 lows...
  21. But xrp token distribution is disproportionatly held by a few individuals. These multi-billion xrp holders have the power to manipulate the market. How does this look any less shady than Bitcoin to banks?
  22. Buy the rumor, sell the news. Spend any time in the markets and you'll see this pattern several times in all industries.
