  1. Thanks for sharing, very interesting to read such opinions. I think a comparison with gold is difficult at this time. Gold is old and well established. Cryptocurrencies have to prove themselves as better alternatives for real problems for at least several decades. Several decades are a long time in IT. In my opinion, it depends a lot from your personal point of view: - If you're comparing gold with bitcoin there are advantages. It’s faster and cheaper to transport. - If you're comparing gold with any crypto, you discover other aspects and solutions. I don't think it has to do wit
  2. Thanks for your feedback. The usecase is blockchain agnostic. An implementation could also use other cryptos like Nano. Important are tiny/free fees for transactions and speed. I used XRPL for convenience Totally agree @Sukrim, this usecase is some kind of an abuse of a payment system for a messaging system. I like trying out new usecases that do not always fit what it’s meant for. It does not care about amounts or settlement. It just uses its messaging feature. I also think, relying on ledger access is a main critic point. It shifts maintenance cost from myself to the entity that provides
  3. As a mobile developer maybe you needed to send your user a notification from your server backend to his smartphone. Therefore you probably used Google Cloud Messaging (GCM) and/or Apple Push Notification Service (APNS). While it’s easy to send notifications to user’s smartphone, it’s getting harder if you like to send a notification from user’s smartphone to his computer. Existing services have limited functionality for that use case or don’t support all desired computer platforms. Therefore we created radCM as a new approach using XRPL. It's the first paragraph of this Coil post. What do

  5. Thanks for your response. From time to time, I'm in contact with Wietse but i prefer to not contact people directly if not really necessary/not directly related to their products. I assume people have enough other stuff to do. IMO this topic should be more in the activity area of XRPLF.
  6. Meanwhile I discovered proposals BIP-0021 (Bitcoin) and EIP-681 (Ethereum). I couldn’t find an equivalent proposal for XRPL. Any suggestions where to submit & discuss such proposals? Didn’t receive a twitter response from @XRPLF until now. @karlos Maybe you could move this topic to "Technical Discussion" due there isn't a blockchain agnostic solution and therefore we need to create an XRPL specific proposal.
  7. Hi there I'm currently working on a converter, which transforms blockchain payments (xrp) into ISO20022 camt054 format. That should allow companies to import received crypto payments into their accounting system within the existing ISO20022 import functionality. In traditional accounting, you need to match a received payment with an issued bill to recognize which bill was payed. Therefore you can integrate an identification string into your bill as payload. If this payload also gets integrated into the payment, the receiver can match the payment to the bill. Most crypto wallets just s
  8. I really like that idea! Some time ago I tried to motivate coil team to support a usecase, where we could implement coil in any software. But I could not convince them I think. In my opinion there are some interesting advantages in such an approach: a) As you already exound it's a way to support other (free) projects b) It enableds a further distribution of XRP c) It could improve one of XRP ecosystem's most disadvatages: lack of independent developers. While BTC, ETH and others have PoW to enable companies and developers to generate regular earnings, theres no such a thing in XRP e
  9. Sorry, I read some reddit before that post. I invested more time that i liked into that post... therefore it must remain
  10. Ripple tries to enter financial sector. As I read all your post it doesn't seem that many are working in this sector. I would love the hear such voices as I know there are some here. Financial sector works differently. If you don't get that, I think it's even harder to understand several developments. ODL saves a bank money? Nice, but who cares? The big investers as stock owners? Pha, they are far far away. As a private person or a sme company you are interested in saving money. Banks have already a lot of money. There are other, even more important aspects for an ODL interested person in a
  11. Maybe my words weren't the best chosen. Maybe they were interpreted wrongly. English isn't my native language. In my opinion, there are often multiple aspects to consider if you think about a topic. Depending on the point of view, other aspects maybe appear only after we take another view. As already told, I'm not interested in such a way of talk as I read it. Maybe I get that wrongly. Thanks for sharing your minds in this thread.
  12. @TiffanyHayden sad to hear about personal attacks. We should be able to discuss respectfully about different topics and bring light into multiple aspects. However, yea, that's sadly the culture we're living. One of the major reasons I prefer to stay in background. Very kind you jumped in with your own validator, but what did you expected. Were your expectation maybe too high? As mentioned before, priorities in a competitive area may change quickly. I'm sure Ripple is aware of that specific situation now. Was it just luck that the network didn't halt? Maybe. Maybe there was a disaster plan. W
  13. @TiffanyHayden I understand your annoyance, you mentioned some important aspects. However, they aren't new. These aspects existed since I discovered XRPL years ago. Therefore, nothing has changed. I knew that situation when I started investing time into XRPL. I knew Ripple hold many coins. I knew there is no fund that just throws money to me. I knew nobody pays me for running a validator. I have to insist politely, but if you expected something different, your expectations may just have been too optimistic. All your engagement (thanks!) was your personal decision. I for myself think most of
  14. In my opinion it's all about the idea. A horde of apprentices without ideas and visions won't be able to establish an ecosystem. Given a good idea learning XRPL specifics isn't that hard. I think we see the same problem, just with different reasons and other point of views. Thank you for exchanging minds.
  15. I refuse to judge here which projects are worth a funding. In my opinion, this would lead to an ineffective debate of subjective opinions.
  16. I'm convinced EVERY good idea finds a funding. In my eyes, often people tend to think their idea is better than it actually is.
  17. I would argue, they just don't care if anyone else uses XRPL or not. I don't see currently a prosper ecosystem for XRPL nor serious efforts of Ripple to establish one. That's ok for me.
  18. Honestly, I don't think the funding is an issue. There is so much money around in the world as never before. I'm convined that you will get a funding for any idea if it's worth. That's not a question of the platform you use. Never in my career any possible investor told me "but you have to use platform x".
  19. I think we have to be fair here. Neither with Bitcoin nor Ethereum, nor any other serious platform there is an easy funding rain for my ideas. If my idea is it worth, I’m going to find a funding independent of my chosen platform.
  20. Today it doesn't matter. But imo the decision to enable ICOs attracted a lot of devs into the Ethereum ecosystem. There are a lot of independent Ethereum companies able to generate money nowadays. That results in a living ecosystem beside all the moon talk. Imo that supports and encourages innovation. With this point of view, the distribution of coins in an ecosystem matters.
  21. I don't see that as a big issue. XRPL API is quite good documented and not that hard to learn. There isn't any exotic programming language *solidity**cough* I don’t see XRPL just as a playground for interested coders. It’s a platform like others you can use. With any idea I'm going to choose the environment which fits the best. I don't see any big issue here. The lesser incentive there is, the bigger the idealistic motivation must be. The ICO chess move was a great idea.
  22. I wouldn't sign this in this absoluteness ... but the current situation does not seem supportive to me either.
  23. I think each entrepreneur has to decide him/herself, if an idea and the environment is good enough to give it a try. I understand the reason, why there shouldn't be an incentive to run a validator. But there are also negative aspects of that decision. Some were mentioned above. It's ok if someone doesn't want/can contribute. But... no incentive for those who could contribute also means people maybe invest their time and effort in other platforms :/
  24. Great effort, top engagement! Just speaking for myself, I currently have to refuse to take such big risks in this space as you took. Wish you all the best and press thumbs for your success!
  25. As mentioned before, I think it's not an easy task to support developers in a sustainable way. To establish a healthy community of developers/engineers, they should be able to start projects with a good risk/reward aspect. A good aspect in mining is imo that it gives people an incentive to "work" with the network. Money can be made and spent within the network. Once I hoped Codius would became such a place. But currently, the party is running on another floor :/
