  1. @P3T3RIS Hi Matey, I have registered and will be using your exchange Great work, love the interface!
  2. I'm all for negativity, and I'm all for having a positive outlook. That's the reason a forum exists. We are all here for the same purpose, well we should be and that is that we invest in xrp and all want to profit. I certainly don't mind realism and I admit sometimes I need to bring myself back to Earth at times. It is very easy to big something up and get excited over nothing. I'm not going to block or ignore anyone on here, life is too short to mess around doing stuff like that. But one does have to question when someone is always negative what their motives are... not that I really care mind, I'm just here for the ride.
  3. I love posts like these, because this is where we are going to look back 5+ years from now and either laugh that we were small talking xrp having made a lot of money or cursing the day we ever invested I'll just come out and say it, ofcourse I want to be a millionaire, who doesn't? no one in their right mind can just say 'well i'll settle for paying off my mortgage and have a nice car' to me thats just a get out of the question easy remark. Even someone who has 10 xrp will have at some point considered how is this going to make me rich? The only question I ever really ask myself is, what is the real value of an xrp? at the moment that question is on the same even keel as 'what is the meaning of life?' no-one knows. The way I look at this is simple, bitcoin has set the standard, albeit in the most backwards/forwards way imaginable, something will follow suit, thats what trends are for. If bitcoin hit 20k+ per coin, I would go out on a limb and say xrp will follow suit and inflate aswell, do I care if this is caused by FOMO, hype whatever... no I don't, I couldn't care less. I don't really care what Ripple do either aslong as what ever it is has the potential to raise the price of xrp. Yes for what it is worth I follow some crypto news, I look at the stuff what comes out of these expo's but as I am effectively throwing pennies into xrp per token, I'd rather do that than blow it on fast food or alcohol as an example. i have learnt a lot about following charts, understanding support, wallets and withdrawing, the volatility of crypto. But I hodl my xrp, I dont trade, I don't panic when the markets deflate, yes the price changes but my holdings don't. Hell I even took the time to read about CGT. In short, and I'll re-quote myself years down the line, if xrp hits between 50 and 100. Then I'm out, completely 100% I'm rich. 'But wait what happens if xrp hit 1000+?' my answer is great, good for you, I hope your rich too! the first opportunity I get to hit 1 million plus, i will take it and I will have no regrets, I wont look back and think I should have held out, greed is not my friend in life, I know being the kind of person that I am if I think one more day, one more 0 on the end, I'll lose out and thats not a chance I am willing to take. Like I said if you choose to hold out and it pays off, then great, I'll be the first to congratulate you, but I'll be doing it from some big ass mansion with my extravagant car asking when are you coming to party? I know this isn't some get rich quick scheme, and there has to be a level of investment however small to eventually make a good return if that happens. But I am investing an amount that I believe will return me a reward worth waiting for, an amount I can categorically say I can afford to lose. Thats my take on this
  4. I'll see you there I make it a point to go to Ibiza atleast once every year! And when I do that they year I cash out of XRP, thats going to be one wild trip!!
  5. Not sure I agree with this, it all depends on the eventual price per xrp. At £100 per xrp, 10k xrp = 1 million At £50 per xrp, 20k xrp = 1 million And so on and so forth, so for for a 4k investment and 20k xrp a 1 million return is not much is it
  6. i don't think the 10k a day is a bad thing as lets just say that you have 20k xrp and xrp hits £50 per coin, your'e a millionaire. But a millionaire in crypto... this is where I feel Uphold will really come into its own, you need to get that xrp converted into fiat, so you most your 20k xrp into Uphold, you can then transfer into fiat and onto a virtual card. My understanding on this from speaking directly with Uphold, is that these virtual card have no max or upper limit, so in essence you can instantly exchange 20k xrp for £1 million that £ figure remains on the card, even if xrp plummeted immediately after you still have that £1 million. So with that in mind I suppose it comes down to how desperate you are to withdraw the whole balance. If this ever happened for me I'm effectively paying myself 70k a week (based on 7 days) The only caveat here is that I am of the understanding that once my entire hoard of xrp has been converted that's it i'm done I really dont want to be messing around with having another 20% kicking around, Iv'e invested and done my time, if xrp hits 3 figures then that's me, I'm out. I have not reason to have any emotional attachment to it.
  7. My conversations with Uphold have always been very positive and I'm a fan of how Uphold works. What I do find interesting aside from my own reasons for using Uphold is that it looks like it is becoming a place where you can store, exchange and transfer between their base currencies. This is quite exciting because as I have said before as a UK resident I have the ability to withdraw into GBP to an account, even whilst we are still very early in the game, this sort of adoption really does give you an insight to the possibilities that will be around when this market matures. Personally speaking I don't want to be relying on exchanges, this is just as important as Uphold proving they are secure with what could be potentialls millions and millions of crypto and fiat currency and user accounts, someone will try and break them at some point, I think for me to be able to use them I need to see how they handle something like this and what 'stories' come out of it by affected people. I don't want to be part of another Mt.Gox saga.
  8. This is the reason why I chose to Hodl and keep it that way, i'll make myself ill if it bash the charts daily and panic over fluctuations, it just isnt worth it. The way I see it is that I am buying xrp for pennies here, it isn't of much consequence to me whether the price rises or drops in the short term, it is completely out of my control. I enjoy coming here and reading the articles and contributing in any way I can, and yes I I do get excited when I see Ripple news and stuff, but I have to treat my own xrp as throw away, almost like a pack of cigarettes, so I purposely buy, add to wallet and forget. It did take me a long time to work out the difference between the buy and current price and to stop looking at this daily but it's all part of the education. I'm not a trader, I never will be and I'm ok with that. I firmly believe that xrp will in the future have significant value both in terms of price as a asset and also as it own entity. But I am prepared to wait for this and hope to look back in 5-10 years when I will still be relatively young and think ' wow I made the right choice there' and in part a lot of that will be down to you guys, for which I will always be thankful
  9. I've always said for me 20,000 xrp makes me a millionaire at £50 and 10,000 xrp a millionaire at £100 Which is £4000 or £2000 give or take initial investment
  10. Learn from the past, participate in the future I do honestly believe in a few years from now we will be having the same conversation but some of us will be very wealthy
  11. I don't think anyone has a hatred for bitcoin, bitcoin is the golden child of crypto. I think what is frustrating is that bitcoin has very little use and it is more 'valuable' than a crypto with use in the real world ie; xrp
