  1. Yeah no one likes paywalls, but that is why we have to support coil. Today coil is just another paywall, but it might become THE paywall. I think that most people don't like paywalls since it is complicated to make a payment towards each new corporation. It is matter of convenience, not that you necessarily don't like to pay for your consumption. It is also a matter of bundled consumption, that I have to pay a monthly fee to consume content from only one corporation. But if the internet agreed on one paywall standard with efficient transactions, and thereby eliminated the inconvenience and the need to bundle consumption, then I think that the potential to monetize content online would increase exponentially. I think that coil is aiming to solve these problems so why would you react to it as just another paywall? Surely no one would object to pay hodor 1 cent for every blog he writes - as long as it would be convenient to do so?
  2. Finally some value for my coil subscription... Now, don't go spending it all in one place!
  3. Imagine the fees of coinbase and visa combined though.
  4. Why would anyone want to maintain a balance of crypto on coinbase, only to be able to use this card? Am i missing something, does anyone see a benefit in having this card?
  5. There is a connector on ILP which have provided FIAT in exchange for some crypto currency, maybe XRP, maybe ETH. It seems from the text that the connector is supposed to be active going forward. Need more information.
  6. Need more information. What fiat is it? Is this coinbase related?
  7. It seems unlikely that this extension in any way is endorsed by Google. At the link below it is said that the extension is provided by RA Dynamics, while the "news source" claims google themselves have put the word XRP in their mouth. I wish! This is simply an integration of XRPtipbot functionality in some random google chrome extension, nothing to get overly excited about. https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/moneymessage/agmiligeoamcmpcmakoknihhcbdgffpp
  8. Speaking in terms of potential i would argue that this partnership is more significant then both SBI and Santander. Markets like India where there is a huge demand for cheap services and where every 50 cents counts for the citizens, that is markets where the real potential lies for adoption. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Remittances_to_India "Remittances to India are money transfers from non-resident Indians (NRIs) employed outside the country to family, friends or relatives residing in India. India is the world's leading receiver of remittances, claiming more than 12% of the world's remittances in 2015.Remittances to India stood at US$68.91 billion in 2015, accounting for over 4% of the country's GDP." 15% of that market is HUGE.
  9. This is an interesting topic. On what grounds do you propose that xrp has better liquidity then Bitcoin? Given that bitcoin has aprox. 10-fold the daily volume of xrp? I realize some of that is crypto to crypto volume... does anyone have numbers to compare fiat volume per crypto currency?
  10. Probably not. However it may be convenient to pruchase these securities with an instant settlement cross border payments service which is integrated in the same system as the securities. A service that requires XRP.
  11. Project Ubin: (http://www.mas.gov.sg/Singapore-Financial-Centre/Smart-Financial-Centre/Project-Ubin.aspx) Project Jasper: (https://www.payments.ca/sites/default/files/jasper_phase_iii_whitepaper_final_0.pdf)
  12. Well. You and me both. Possibly. My apologies.
  13. https://bittrex.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/360024542691-Bittrex-Technology-Update-What-You-Need-to-Know "Some of these features will include: Maker-Taker and other features for liquidity providers and high-volume traders" "Once the update is completed, Bittrex and Bittrex International users will enjoy noticeably faster orderbook updates and overall order execution, as the new engine will have the capacity to execute even more orders per second. In fact, after the upgrade, your orders will be processed at a rate 20 times faster than before." Doesn't this sound xRapid-related? The two main features they are pushing are speed improvements and Maker-Taker features, which would both be crucial components for an xRapid transaction. Does anyone know in detail what the Maker-Taker features are?
