  1. Yes. She’s using broad general and generic numbers. You can be invested in something and still be rational. Unfortunately, many on this forum can’t be rational. Executives leaving, at this rapid pace, is a set back no matter what. Now you need to bring in new employees, train them , build relationships, etc. Not just a plug and play replacement. Let’s also not ignore that most executives leave traditional companies where upside isn’t astounding. I can work as executive at Fortune 500 company and leave after two years, largely because my upside is a fixed bonus. I leave because I feel I’ve done what I can as the company is established and it’s a matter of increased sales. We can’t hold that same logic to something like Ripple, which is in its early stages If I’m an executive at Ripple, see large potential of an IPO or something similar and see all the amazing developments behind the scenes, resulting in confidence that XRP, which I can be paid in and likely receive a boat load of as bonus and perk of my executive role, then I’m not just jumping ship for a “better opportunity” or pay increase. In fact, even if I thought XRP could reach $1 again, that’s a 4x increase that my efforts are directly tied to helping achieve. You need to stop the when moon club and realize not every piece of news is somehow amazing for Ripple or “standard”. Show me one other start up in key critical stages of early adaption that had this % of executives leave in this time frame.
  2. If you’re at a start up company and hold an executive position, which comes with shares , etc , you don’t up and leave for better position. The upside is too high and then you leave once you realize it’s not going to materialize. Ripple goes from having no employees leave to a barrage of 6-7 key players over course of several months. And no...people don’t just come, do a “job”, and leave when it’s done. That’s not how reality works but it does sound good in fantasy land.
  3. Somewhere, someday, a bear will pop up with a cartoon image and try to tell us all their job was done and we’re near the finish line. Then a rational person will pop up and explain people don’t just leave or move companies because their “job” was “done”. It’s likely a case of set backs or them all seeing resistance ahead that’s not public. Many people join start ups, give it a go on potential, then leave after it comes apparent the vision couldn’t be fulfilled for whatever reason.
  4. This isn’t as big of an issue as Ripple makes it out to be though. There wasn’t even an outcry about this or a sought after solution until Ripple pushed the narrative because they found a use case. If this was as big of a concern as Ripple is making it out to be, much more would have been done sooner and faster action would be take. As is, I’m hopeful for XRP success, I just don’t think it’ll be adapted easily, as banks will be content with xCurrent for faster correspondence.
  5. Do banks really care about nostro/vostro? Is it really that big of an issue for them? Who knows? It seems like Ripple pushed this narrative as it was the largest way to implement a true banking use case for XRP. Reality seems to dictate that the banks are more concerned about the messaging systems over the nostro/vostro accounts and the savings and opportunity cost that come with them. xCurrent could end up being the key product that banks like and utilize, with XRP/xRapid being used in other corridors and use cases. We can't just make assumptions that it automatically goes xCurrent to xRapid implementation.
  6. Even in a perfect world scenario where banks are using XRapid, the settlement time is what ultimately hurts XRP price. It’s not the amount of transfers banks are making daily that matters as much as how many combined with the amount that are happening per second, minute, etc. Now if banks hold large sums of XRP (which they won’t need to and likely wouldn’t for a variety of reasons), then that could put upward pressure on price, as liquidity dries up. In the end, as long as Ripple’s preferred partner exchanges are set up and have liquidity, the transfer are so fast that the XRP will be available to supplement the next transfer in a matter of seconds. Hopium is fun Hopium is unrealistic.
  7. Follow DrTrump for updates. Actually, I mean follow TiffH for updates.
  8. No their not. Their “insiders” that create Twitter accounts, tweet some cryptic stuff, and follow him. From there they pose as insiders as he gives them recognition and they feed him more trolling messages. He doesn’t vet out any sources, as that’d ruin his theories and views. He should change his screen name it Ohhforrr.
  9. It’s new for Ripple the company. XRP is decentralized and not a security, remember? Therefore if Ripple doesn’t control XRP, this shouldn’t have any impact on XRP. We can’t have our cake and eat it too.
  10. This is what people don’t realize. Banks need to profit. They’ll pass on the costs anyway they can. Everyone likes to use the “their not using XRP or they’d save more” excuse. Reality is banks will be hesitant to invest heavily into something few others are using. Add on training on top along with keeping current system and it’s a large headache for most banks. Ripple is building a lot of partnerships but has yet to produce any significant xrapid or XRP usage. It seems more clear many are utilizing their other software solutions.
  11. My bank allows me to withdraw as much as I want as overdraft but that doesn’t mean I do.
