I acknowledge that this has been a very challenging month to get through following the xRapid announcement on October 1st. Nevertheless, I have seen more hate in the past thirty days than since I began following Ripple and XRP roughly two years ago. Since when did having an XRPchat profile or twitter account make us all insiders and experts? Are we not just contributors? What makes ones opinion more valuable than the other? A good portion of us are all trolls anyways, right? I think it would benefit the community for all of us to simply be respectful of everyone regardless of their opinions. These are uncharted territories we are entering so everyone should stop acting like there are clear bench marking examples to compare XRP and its future value to. This site is obviously for being open minded and having discussions, but the cruelty and hate is just toxic.
We do know : Ripple has partnered with some of the biggest financial institutions in the world and is also supported by massive companies . In a world of manipulation of value and inefficiencies across the board, Ripple and XRP clearly have a future and that should be enough to propel us into where we want to go. The moon.
What we don't know : How XRP will react in the next few months to the incoming rumors. We do not know where the price is headed, or how big this monster can be.
My irrelevant suggestion : Pray for the best, prepare for the worst. I am optimistic that if some things go right, who knows where this price could go? If things go wrong, maybe the price goes back down into the .2-.3 range and the concept is dead. My price prediction is from $.1-$5000 and with that mentality I will never be wrong. The division between 589ers and <1ers is so silly. Shout out BG123 though.
I am definitely a fan of old fashioned raillery, however, cruelty never made anyone's day better. Keep it real guys and have fun.
