    Dear community members… why the hate?
    Too much of the posts just always drift abroad to personal attacks and hate. Why are ladies and gentleman doing that here? It’s really not needed, neither it’s useful for open exchanging minds. In my opinion there are often the same reasons:
    Misunderstanding of specific points Inability to firstly THINK about other opinions before start bashing Missing respect of other opinions, independently of my own Personal hate for specific members I enjoy different opinions. That makes discussions interesting. I like getting challanged with critical points... but with respect. I would really enjoy, if members here could think about above points. Take yourself at your nose and ask yourself:
    Shouldn’t I try to understand other points better, even if there are maybe some wrong aspects? Am I aware of the fact, that due there’s no face-to-face communication here, maybe I just understand something different than the poster wanted? Is hating/attacking someone here really helpful for my opinion? Gives that behavior any more info about a topic? Does that really help others to join a communication? What does it help me to call others idiots? Would it be possible instead to show my own position and arguments? When I’m trying to prove someone is wrong, couldn’t I just add some sources to help others understand my point of view? Does any disrespectful note really help others to follow? Is it really necessary to defend my opinion to the death? Maybe i could just leave a topic earlier? After realizing I was wrong or misleaded, couldn’t maybe a friendly “sorry” help our communication culture? These critics of course don’t apply to everyone in this community, but I am tired of reading hate after personal attacks. It doesn’t bring anything to anyone. So please… think more about your own behavior and keep respecting other opinions.

    As for over the last year... over and over... THX for the first time
    @Topic
    I think most of (non-tech, non-fin) people will always trust exchanges too much. Our short crypto history has proven that already too often. I think it’s the same problem like with traditional financial institutions. In my country there is a limited maximal amount guarantee by the government if an institute fails. But a lot of people have more, uninsured money on those banks. For most of them it’s just too painful to manage multiple accounts (and paying multiple fees). We can just indicate the importance of that topic… so… thanks

    Jerrybo reacted to jag216 in Recession, Basel III and Xrp   
    For point one, I agree here - the B3 accords are voluntary even as I understand it - they are guidelines and not legislation. They are what banks agree to in order to put a floor on systemic capitulation. I can't speak to how dishonest banks may be about fulfilling their reserve requirements for leveraged assets, or how ratings agencies may face regulatory capture. Yes, we can all get fooled again, but this makes blockchain adoption more interesting - it draws a line in the sand, so to speak, in terms of transparency to some degree.
    Point two, I have argued that, as domestic reserve requirement and creditworthiness tightens due to raising interest rates, banks will claw back their correspondent banking reserves to provide more liquidity at home - but those banks already hooked into RippleNet may actually get a jump on this scenario and pull this back in advance because they will be able to source liquidity for cross-border payments in a radically cost-effective way. It isn't the inflation in other countries that is the concern - it is the shortage of reserves to provide liquidity through the extension of credit at home. All the belts tighten as rates rise, but banks connected to RippleNet can lose the weight in advance.
    Point three, by the time they consider purchasing XRP, the system will have to have already proven itself to be both viable and valuable because of the circumstance I have mentioned in point two. Being able to pull back correspondent capital and yet still maintain (if not accelerate) cross-border liquidity over a few months may provide regulators with enough data to determine the stability of the asset. By the time banks are actually getting around to doing this, the sector will no longer be dominated by retail traffic. We should already see a reasonable price for XRP - and stability through utility. It may take a full fiscal year of use in the marketplace for this decision making to even start. I wouldn't expect anyone to rule on the nature of XRP until it has survived a fiscal year in the trenches.
    Point four, elastic solutions are necessary when it comes to extending credit to pay for war. If we go to war - at today's debt to GDP ratio, there will be a final fiat bubble and catastrophic collapse:

    If you consider our international incursions leading up to 9/11 as a sort of World War I event, and the great recession to be parallel to the great depression, then the parabolic rise in GDP to debt ratio during World War II could find a corresponding rise in global conflict event that raises the GDP to debt ratio to nearly 150 or more. At this point, your guess is as good as mine in terms of how that sort of currency inflation will affect the dollar, particular when other countries will certainly develop their own trade networks outside the hegemony of the petrodollar by that time.
    Fixed supply asset-backed currencies - not like gold, which is easy to fake and dilute, hard to divide, can be shaved, etc. etc. - but like cryptographically protected and audited ledgers of real-world assets cannot stop countries from inflating their own digital currencies, but adherence to these standards will certainly create a multi-tier segregated marketplace where those trading on fixed-supply assets will refuse to trade in currencies that are inflationary.
    The reason they will do this is because of the effects of Gresham's law - if you allow good money to trade with bad money, the good money will be pulled from circulation/hoarded - like junk silver. This is one factor that makes cryptocurrency attractive internationally. When compared to local system of high inflation, despite the volatility of price in local fiat, the principal of fixed supply on a network that has commercial value makes cryptocurrency closer to the 'good money' category than the 'bad money.'
    In terms of our latest credit crisis, it was clear that 'good money' in the system - trustworthy and appropriately underwritten extensions of credit - was co-mingled with bad paper - 'bad money' - into mortgage backed securities that then were given AAA 'good money' ratings - well suddenly the production of these sliced and diced securities was no longer a matter of selling off the bad paper they already had on the books. Suddenly there was a market for CREATING MORE bad paper - because it could be easily sold as good paper when tied to enough good paper to satisfy ratings agencies. Lots of fees, commissions, etc. to inspire NINJA loans and such. Fun times!
    What makes this whole mess even more interesting is the deep leverage people are applying to the purchase of bitcoin. When you purchase cryptocurrency on margin or by taking out credit that you have no intention to pay until you receive your gains, you are doing the same thing folks did when they used rent income as part of stated annual income while buying more houses and fabricating their income statements to leverage further and further into debt. So long as the price of houses kept going up, this scheme could continue, but once the prices flatten or collapse, the house of credit cards falls to the ground. Those folks with 3-4 houses in 3 years? Foreclosures galore.
    It would not surprise me if there are elements at work now trying to flush out the 'bad bitcoin' - the folks who purchased bitcoin on credit with money they didn't really have expecting the price to continue to rise indefinitely. If BTC goes down to $2k-$1k and flushes the bad money out of the system in a mini recession as a result of what we are seeing this year, that's fantastic - it will create a perfect opportunity for patient good money to get back in.
    But there will always be bad actors - we will hopefully have more regulation in place to lift the barrier to entry. Why do you think so many localities made it impossible to purchase bitcoin using credit cards? Unsecured loans become bad money very quickly in an economic downturn - particularly when the base interest rate rises.

    Jerrybo reacted to cryptoxrp in Is Ripple buying Swift?   
    Agree. In the best case SWIFT (as a coop) will be forced (by the banks) to work with Ripple to enhance it's payment/settlement functionality... that will help.
    The financial pay and settlement landscape is all about, stability, compliancy, controllability (verification) and trust. If SWIFT remains slow to adapt and Ripple keeps up the present pace of improving efficiency of the various payments usescases like xVia, xCurrent, xRapid, Coil, Xpring, Mojaloop, Multi-hop and improvement of inefficient payment corridors, etc... then we'll see real change and higher XRP prices soon. But the pressure has to remain!
    Ripple is not there yet. Major improvement area's are scalability (we are still waiting for Cobalt...) and security. With more and more validators every month @JoelKatz seems to have reached the decentralisation goal in 2018.
    Hopefully we will get some wel deserved good X-Mas news from Ripple (XRP) as a reward to all the HOD-lers, investors and hard working supporters of Ripple and the XRP ecosystem.

    I agree with @Benchmark. I don’t see that happen. Let’s compare advantages / disadvantages “acquiring” SWIFT from Ripple's standpoint:
    Advantages:
    Get a bunch of customers Finish community speculations Disadvantages:
    They aren’t a “Startup” anymore. It would be very hard / impossible to retain that mentality. They got a lot of staff that doesn’t share a startup mindset. Never underestimate problems dues old mindsets of people. Can they really handle a new bunch of customers? Theire time resouces are limited. Acquisition cost a lot of time and resources. Aren’t that resources better invested in ripples own projects? I don’t know why Ripple should need to take over SWIFT. With their active customers it seems like the proof-of-work for their plan is given for me. They are rapidly growing. They will go their way. I see more risks than chances in acquiring SWIFT.
