    I think the XRP chart is unimportant.  XRP with get dragged up as bitcoin's price rises and it will move up on positive lawsuit news.

    This whole notion of some secret rich whale society seems a little tinfoil hat'ish. I don't disagree that manipulation is happening. I'm confident people are paid to produce pro or con "news" articles and forum posts, but do you really think they're coordinated. How would that even work? Some secret society discord channel? I'm confident they're as disjoined as us. The difference is all it takes is one investor with a couple of million to invest in media to drive markets in their favor... or, better yet, the popularity to do it for free with a few tweets. Those playing this media game might recognize when others are doing so as well, but we small pocket investors can also see and track these patterns.  I just don't think there is some secret whale society making coordinated moves.

    You know, once upon a time I would have argued that, despite a coin not representing an institution with objective fiscal reporting, market cap was still relevant and something you should consider when doing your due diligence on a coin.  But as I type this, Doge is the 6th largest coin by market cap.  Pretty sure any argument I make in favor of crypto market cap relevance is immediately lost due to this fact.  So yeah, as long as buyers out pace sellers for what ever crazy reason, price, and specifically market cap, can really go anywhere.

    Questioning is an absolutely normal process to figure out what to do next, the amount of comments of people trying to show their guts by pointing out people with questions makes me think: are their guts impacted by the number of people with questions? 🤣🤣🤣

    My biggest problem with XRP which seemingly is unlike other coins is that is ALWAYS fails to hold any gains it makes. Look around at any other token in the space and they mostly go up, consolidate for a while and then move up again. XRP is a great coin for the non true believers. Very easy to trade as you know after a leg up it is coming straight back down.
    I have shifted large amounts of $ in the last 6 months for many reasons, but ultimately the SEC case was the clincher. I do not know what will happen with Ripple / XRP as no one else does but I do know that the promise of its true potential have been dealt a severe blow. The Moneygram relationship ending was terrible from a PR perspective. It signals to the world that their technology did not work out as hoped. I still have a sizeable portion of XRP but have transferred that to others which have performed exceptionally.

    As an experiment, I placed $10k each (in a Blockfolio account) on May 17 last year with the following results:
    BTC up 964% - $96,400
    ETH up 987% - $98,700
    VET up 2200% - $220000
    ADA up 2678% - $267,800
    XRP up 80% - $18,000

    I think the lesson we can all learn is that never place all your bets on the one horse. Great if you are right (and we still might be) but painful when you are not.

    A surprising amount of people on twitter don't seem to understand circulating supply.  BTC going from ~$10USD  in 2012 to $50,000USD today is the equivalent of XRP going from $0.002USD  to $20.52USD.    

    So yes, XRP going to some 4 or 5 digit USD value is completely laughable.

    Zerpple reacted to 2ndtimearound in Are you diversifying your XRP bags? If so, what are you buying?   
    I picked CTSI purely because I kept hearing about it...talk about a speculative bet.  I think Eri's right about basically throwing money at enough coins, and you'll see a decent return in the bull market.  At the same time, you have to really focus and be prepared to take profits regularly and never ever get complacent. 
    I have bought back into XRP...though sold some off in the last "pump and dump".  The amount of XRP I hold is maybe just 1% to 2% of my overall crypto holdings though. I am just wary of XRP's price action.  It's prone to whales dumping as soon as the price rises.  Essentially any kind of rise is always dampened by this kind of selling action.  It makes XRP quite a wild ride whereas other tokens I hold seem to have fairly strong support levels and there's time to think. With XRP, I basically can't trust any support levels above 25c.  It's 44c now, but if it was 25c by next week, it's no surprise.  Something in me "snapped" as far back as September 2018 when XRP went from 28c > 80c (wicked there), then crashed back down to 25c in a matter of days.   It just seems like there's no time to think.  I know crypto moves fast, but XRP moves too fast for my liking. 
    There's also a lot of conspiratorial talk surrounding XRP which I don't think is helpful.  I got absorbed in it during 2018, but it starts to not only get old, but it becomes "noise" where if you believe it too much, you can end up overlooking other tokens.  Not only that, but I think the conspiracy talk can lead people to think XRP is this magic asset that will give them the x100 they're after.  The smarter money puts in more money but looks for more realistic returns so "sells early" into a bull market and finishes selling near the blow off top.  The "dumber" money is treating their investments like a lottery ticket and dismissing even x5 or x10 gains....for that magical x100.  And they hold right through a bull run without selling.  They thought their token was "the one" - there was going to be that magical moment that their $2000 investment became $100,000 overnight...and it never happened.  So they overlooked an x5 and then probably end up selling at a 50% loss in frustration.  I know I'm generalising but the XRP conspiracy talk foments this idea that holding XRP is like holding the winning lottery ticket.  I just don't think it's healthy to think this way.
