  1. Ridiculous comparison. XRP market cap is larger and XRP have 2x more coins in circulation. They only thing they should care about is the gained profit percentage. Besides, pumps like this wont last forever and price wont stay like that. I've seen it many, many times: coins that grows parabolic will fall as hard as they goes up. But the sentiment of XRP maxis here has of course changed
  2. Not sure if I understood your post regarding: My interpretation is that most investors invested in Ripple for a future profit - so its for money. I don't use a specific term for my activities, which has different connotations, and I don't like that. I invest - or whatever term you would like to use - in multiple crypto projects in order to make money and that's my only goal. I use different strategies and I try to take advantage of the price swings. I don't have any perception that I own a part of Ripple when I buy XRP and I'm definitely not a accredited investor.
  3. I don't know what Tetragon is thinking here, especially as a investor. I mean they must have been done their due diligence before investing in Ripple, such as risk analysis etc and eventually saw Ripple as a potential good investment. So why this move? Now, if they think Ripple is already f**ked, then fine. But again, we haven't even the lawsuit and we don't know the contract details between Ripple and Tetragon. What exactly made Tetragon to think that they are entitled to force Ripple to redeem stock? Because it's a security? No, this will be decided in court and there hasn't even been a pre-trial! So to me this sounds premature to say at least!
  4. People draw all kind of conclusions and they haven't seen the lawsuit
  5. I don't understand this or if this is a correct interpretation. SEC charges Ripple et al. for illegal securities offering. To be charged in the first place, you have to sell an unregistered security - XRP that is. Ripple et al. did sold XRP and violated security laws (and currently still engaging in unlawful offer and sales) according to the SEC. If XRP is not a security, you cant be charged with securities violation and SEC clearly sees XRP as a security.
  6. I do have my own opinions - but I think its best for people to draw their own conclusions
  7. I recommend everybody to watch it! Very important stuff pointed by Greg Kidd and how this whole SEC case is very unusual.
  8. This is why we hate or love JavaScript! EDIT: The trick of understanding this is to acknowledge how JavaScript coerce stuff and how "loose" equality == and "strict" equality === comparison works
  9. To be honest I haven't really cared about the functional programming paradigm, so I have ignored all that altogether including F#
  10. Why F# Would prefer C# or even better JavaScript/NodeJS or perhaps some wrapped version with TypeScript You don't need to run your own rippled server per se, although its encouraged to do so since public servers from Ripple might become unavailable at any time. And yes, some API's - Admin methods - are only available when using a local rippled server. If understand correctly public methods should always be available. WebSockets allow you to setup a connection whereas both the client and server can send messages to each other with the same connection, which is kept open. So the client might for example monitor incoming payments from the server (or whatever event) and run some logic based on that event. The "API" technique is simple when the client send some JSON calls to the rippled server and gets a response. There is no connection that remains open. You call different endpoints depending if you are using JSON calls or WebSocket since they are different protocols (HTTS vs WSS) - but they lead to the same ledger. Everything is detailed on https://xrpl.org/get-started.html EDIT: Just to clarify - there is no "best" method per se. It depends on what you are trying to get done.
  11. Here is what I think. Its not that crypto came into existence yesterday or something like that. I'm sure that the US government quickly became aware of Satoshi's work. Now fast forward to where we are today. The lack of clarity and the absence of action from law makers clearly says it all. The Obama administration didn't offer clarity. The Trump administration didn't offer clarity. And here we got this pickle and the whole industry in the US is in a weird state of limbo. What exactly is allowed and not allowed? "Well - we cant tell you!" Crypto challenges the US hegemony. Crypto is decentralized and this is something governments cant control. They don't want innovation in this industry, but rather they want to make everything more difficult. One example is the recent FINCen wallet rule. https://cointelegraph.com/news/heavy-hitters-of-crypto-call-for-users-to-comment-on-proposed-fincen-wallet-rule The USD is a big Ponzi scheme with none-stop printing from the Federal Reserve and not to mention the enormous debt that will only get bigger. People's hard worked money gets undermined daily and its not strange that people move some of their assets to crypto. Yes, crypto might be a bubble but at least you cant "print" more just like that. This is new paradigm and in the end this is war that the US government will lose.
  12. I don't think there is anything wrong with what David said in that context. Ripple is trying to solve a billion dollar problem and modernize how we deal with payments. XRP is the tool to accomplish that. Of course if XRP manages to slowly and surely capture that market, then of course the XRP value should rise. And that is just a hypothetical scenario.
  13. Yes, absolutely. But I'm still not convinced. Are you able to read and understand legal jargon? Otherwise I would like that to be confirmed from someone that actually work with law. This lawsuit wont be settled anytime soon in the close future. So you've got plenty of time to learn everything, suggest your amendment, save Ripple and BOOM we go directly to the moon!
  14. How is that everyone is so sure that the large holding per see is the problem which thus constituted a violation? The lawsuit is clearly says that defendants sold a unregistered digital asset - XRP.
