    Jerrybo reacted to hammertoe in XRPL Grants for Developers   
    Hello world! We're pleased to announce something special that we've been preparing for the past couple months: XRPL Grants!
    This is a new program to support the XRP community by funding developers and projects directly. Unlike any prior initiative, XRPL Grants is primarily targeting individual developers and very small dev teams, in the earliest stages of building the next big thing. We know that many types of projects don't have a clear business model, especially in the early days. There are also lots of needs in the open source community, which don't directly lead to users or revenue, but are critically important to evolving the network and fostering innovative use cases. Those are the projects we want to support! There's more we can say, and we look forward to discussing in more detail today and in the weeks ahead.
    Find out more at: https://xrplgrants.org/
    Also, I shall be running a couple of extra Twitch session tomorrow (Thursday 27th) at:
    11 AM Pacific Daylight Time (18:00 UTC) 11 AM British Summer Time (10:00 UTC) Come chat to us at: https://www.twitch.tv/ripplexdev

    Jerrybo got a reaction from Julian_Williams in Bitcoin $50 transaction fees and understanding the crypto space   
    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 with intelligence primary. It's more about how you rate bitcoins dominance and inviolability. I understand a maxi’s point of view if I'm assuming bitcoin will simply dominate crypto space forever.
    Another reason could be, people tend to simplify unconsciously unknown things. No one can have a detailed knowledge of so many cryptos. I'm observing similar behavior in traditional media. For many people cryptos are bitcoin. Therefore, people don't know the unknown. It's standard human behavior. We all do that.
    As mentioned before, bitcoin is successfully in some aspects. People assume something is the best because of it's success. Time will tell.

    Jerrybo reacted to Seoulite in Bitcoin $50 transaction fees and understanding the crypto space   
    As of this writing, bitcoin transaction fees are $51.64. For those of you who are into patterns and cycles, the end of the last bull run coincided with fees going above $50. This is the first time it has happened since then.

    I have a BTC maxi friend. Genuinely curious, I asked him how people in bitcoin circles talk about high transaction fees; are they seen as a problem or not? He pointed me to this podcast interview with Michael Saylor. Luckily, the website shows a transcript of the whole thing, so you can scan through and browse at leisure. 
    One of his main arguments for BTC seems to be that it is 'harder' than gold, meaning that it is a more reliable store of valuable than gold over a longer period of time, and therefore it is more useful.
    Why does the number keep going up? Because people keep putting money in. Why do people keep putting money in? Because the number keeps going up! 
    It is a circular argument that collapses if people, for some reason, decide not to put money in. Maybe because people invent a better store of value? I mean you can't just invent a physical substance like gold, but you sure can improve and innovate on a bunch of computer code. But anyway this still doesn't solve the problem of high fees. But the argument he makes for why bitcoin is better is that it is more efficient than moving physical gold around the planet. Yes, he is using Brad's 2017 suitcase of money in an airplane trick, but instead of paper money we are now actually carrying bars of gold around to use as exchange.
    My friend said: "The fees are high because so many people are using it!" I then asked my friend, what do people then say about chains that have low fees no matter how much people are using them? He quoted this in response, from Saylor:
    I thought, hmm is no one using these other chains? It's been a long while since I checked transaction volumes so I did. 

    There are about 3.5 times more transactions daily on the XRPL than on bitcoin. Maybe these metrics are totally wrong, maybe they don't show a bunch of btc transactions that are happening. Nevertheless it seems a bit strange to refer to altcoins with nodes across the planet, transacting billions in value, as lab experiments in a garage.
    Which brings me to my main point. This guy is obviously smart, a savvy businessman, successful. Does he genuinely not know what is happening in other projects in the crypto space? Like does he really think that all altcoins are just a white paper and a few moonkids passing tokens around? It's so strange. I've noticed this with my friend: he is completely oblivious to what is happening in crypto outside bitcoin. I get it though: btc is the big fish so we have to know what's going on with it, but it doesn't have to know what's going on with us. But isn't it surprising when intelligent, hard working people get things so obviously wrong?
    I make no secret of my dislike of bitcoin, but I'm not trying to start a fight or be snarky here. I'm genuinely confused by this. Does this guy not know? Did he do some cursory research back in 2016 about some other projects and has never checked back since?  
    I know crypto is tribal and it's my team versus your team etc. But even in football supporters of teams like Man City or Real Madrid will at least know that other teams have some good players, even if the fans don't think they are better. But in crypto we get this. It's baffling.

    Jerrybo got a reaction from thinlyspread in radCM: A flexible alternative to GCM and APNS using XRPL   
    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 ledger access. Despite that, I see following main advantages:
    It's a kind of outsourcing infrastructure. I prefer paying someone for ledger access, rather than caring about a more complex backend infrastructure myself with maintenance. Backend can be a simple PHP script (simple POST REST API). Hosting a PHP script is very simple, doesn’t need much server maintenance and often available almost (or complety) for free. On the other hand, with direct WebSockets we need something like a Node.js on the server side. That comes with a lot more "admin work" than hosting a PHP script. Another critic would be “why not pay someone to use a generic push notification service, instead of building something yourself”.
    I appreciated your critical feedback, thanks again

    Jerrybo reacted to Sukrim in radCM: A flexible alternative to GCM and APNS using XRPL   
    I don't think that this is a very good use case for XRPL. Yes, it can be (ab)used in that way but it only works because nobody does this at scale. If they did, you'd likely no longer have free and open access to on ledger data and especially memos just like that because you're leeching public resources which will push back if they are used in that way.

    Jerrybo got a reaction from thinlyspread in radCM: A flexible alternative to GCM and APNS using XRPL   
    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 you think about that approach?

    Jerrybo reacted to bnuyts in Idea: enabling payments in a CI/CD pipeline   
    Hello!
    "Can we enable payments, and more specifically XRP, in our CI/CD pipelines?" I've been playing with this idea the past week if it would be possible to contribute to the open source community during development lifecycles.
    With Node.js and in particular the packages structure, a lot of dependencies are added between lots of packages. Whether this is a good thing or not is another discussion  Some of these projects are also looking for funding. When you've used npm you've probably seen the npm fund command.
    Now, what if we could automate this and distribute XRP to opting-in projects whenever we have a succesful release, or even build?
    I've created an example of the idea here, that leverages travis to do the build and donate a payment to the xrp-payment-cli package: https://github.com/bnuyts/xrp-payment-cli-example
    You can check the log output of the builds and see that XRP is being transacted at the end: https://travis-ci.com/github/bnuyts/xrp-payment-cli-example/jobs/467430753#L211
    What happens is the following:
    build is triggered via an event on github to travis travis runs npm install xrp-payment-cli is defined as dev dependency and is installed in node_modules the travis configuration file contains the following to trigger the donation functionality of xrp-payment-cli
    after_success:
      - xrp-payment-cli donate --sender ${SENDER} --secret ${SECRET} --amount ${AMOUNT} when the build is succesful, XRP is sent to the addresses defined in package.json files of node_modules. E.g. the package.json of xrp-payment-cl Below an abstract illustration of the concept:

     
    I've probably missed some things, like what happens when lots of payments are submitted at the same time, will it increase the fee by a lot? Is bulk submitting possible?
    Anyhow, I think that with the speed of XRP and the usage of drops, almost anyone willing is capable of contributing something to the OSS projects they love, in small bits, but regularly.
    Feedback is welcome!

    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 bank:
    What can I personally gain/lose? If I push/start that project, it will be attached to my person. It's success/failure will be connected to my personal future in that bank. If it works, nice, I'll get a special bonus. However, if it fails, I'm doomed at that bank and have to leave. Other people in other banks will know of "my" failed project. Compliance is a central aspect to consider in banking. I can’t say that enought times. The risks to take are even bigger for that person, as the situation is not 100% crystal clear. Violating rules are often costly. Not many will risk a 1M+ punishment just for a maybe "tiny" bonus or a "good work man, thanks". The higher you are in a bank, the more it's about keeping status quo to reduce risks. Financial sector is very lazy. They have enough money. They (currently) don't need to hurry. That boils down to the question: Do the possible gains overweight the PERSONAL risks I'll take as a weighted opinion leader in my bank? Well, most of the time the answer in banker's reality is no. A 10k/100k bonus for such a project is nice, but not that much compared to the case the project fails. And just to get that clear: That whole ODL-XRP-Ripple thing isn't a guaranteed success as many seem to believe.
    There are so many posts about no visible progress , no one uses ODL, etc. No one is going to take the risks if a success is not 99% for sure nor will they publicly talk about it. I don't expect to see any banks soon using it. You will hear about it, if they are 99%+ sure it works for them. Maybe some of you have to rethink about their expectations. And yea, trolls will keep trolling
    I would enjoy to hear some banker's voice in this topic.

    Jerrybo reacted to KarmaCoverage in Flare networks - Spark token to XRP holders   
    This video deserves an entire thread.
    - PoS and the economic scaling issue and why Spark plays the role it does in the Flare network. Using UNL cryptography to solve the byzantine general problem, instead of PoW/PoS like XRP.. and why that economically enables high scale.
    Porting the value denominated in other networks onto Flare, and enabling the business logic to be distributed. Using ETH addressing to make it easy for current PoS SCs to easily move to Flare network.
    - The "if it is more than 1:1 XRP:Spark, for custodial holders (Exchange runs XRPL wallet) then the exchange must pass the additional Spark on to the beneficiary owner of the snapshot XRP.
    - Lending XRP via smart contract. Has anyone seen a detailed explanation or TX flow diagram?
    Smart contract enabled Lending will enable the creation of leverage on top of the existing supply of XRP/BTC/whatever. Plus the creation of many financial products and derivatives denominated in crypto.
    - smart contracts enabling a reduction in the cost of enforcement of contractual agreements. Due to the lack of court/lawyer fees. Low TX cost = CVP analysis that says low cost + high volume + high profit... = Utility value. 
    - there are other insights as well

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 the time, only the biggest player in an ecosystem is able to change the ecosystem. I never expected something else for XRPL.
    @Dogowner5 I support your opinion that Ripple's reputation is on the line with the XRPL. Technically, I agree with Tiffany, but there are soft factors to consider. I think it would be risky to change the coin now. If you work with financial institution sooner or later you understand, that a lot is about trust, stability, regulatory and compliance. I assume financial institution wouldn't appreciate such a move.
    If you read about early days of Facebook, Google+ and Twitter you discover, that hard competition leads to abrupt direction changes in companies. We are in a hard competition area. I assume, there are/were such situations too at Ripple. I don't assume everything just works easy peasy as planned months and years ago. As a startup, you have to react to unexpected situations quickly and have to be agile. Most important topics have top priority. They may change quite fast after an important meeting with a potential customer. In a shorter-term view, establishing an ecosystem rarely has that top priority.
