  1. So sadly this is the case, I think this will really limit the adoption.
  2. I bought my first Bitcoins to buy things on the internet since I did not have a credit card at that time (too young). XRP is much better suited for this as it is faster and cheaper, so this makes me happy and definitely see an audience do this (including me :D) Not needed, XRParrot is a good example of this. One thing that is not clear to me: Does the shop receive XRP or is this transferred to fiat for them? If not I ques not that many shop will accept this payment method.

  4. I purchased Bitcoin to purchased humblebundles as I did not own a creditcard (around 2015). Later when the value of Bitcoin was increasing I started to see the potential. When I was researching cryptos I came across XRP and was instantly sold on the concept. Then I bought in at .16 dollar.
  5. Always take ambcrypto.com with a grain of salt... I find that their articles always cherry pick lines and never give their source. I always end up searching for the source myself and find that their article contributes noting.
  6. Jup, and Ripple is on top of it In The Ripple Drop Episode 10 they announced Swell 2019 will be in Singapore. (video) Asia seems to become the leader in Blockchain technology.
  7. Jup: Singapore Dollar, Vietnamese dong, and Indonesian Rupiah.
  8. With the knowledge that banks are not that fast with introducing new tech this will probably take years before this will even be in production.
  9. The company name reminds me of the game Stronghold, man I love that game.
  10. Funny Theory haha, I suppose their customers will be quite ****** when XRP moons and takes #1. Still, good news! I'm looking forward to March, a lot of things are supposed to go live that month.
  11. My guess is that it will mostly depend on what will cause the value of XRP. When you don't see official announcements of XRP adoption or crypto in general I personally assume history will repeat itself. When there is proof of XRP adoption via official announcements or a major sustained volume surge on the Ledger I would say the price reflects it's real value and will remain stable.
  12. How can you debunk something in march when the tencentcloud.io blog was released on 7 May 2018? Or is tencentcloud.io not an official website from Tencent?
  13. https://support.binance.com/hc/en-us/articles/360023570292-Binance-Will-Delist-CLOAK-MOD-SALT-SUB-and-WINGS A nice overview of the coins that have been delisted and the potential reasons: https://cryptonews.com/news/binance-kicks-out-another-five-altcoins-prices-crash-3380.htm
  14. This already was announced on 15 November 2018: https://www.cimb.com/en/news/news/2018/cimb-group-joins-ripplenet-to-power-instant-payment-across-asean.html Discussed here: "The solution is now live on Speedsend, enabling remittances via corridors such as Australia (in partnership with Instarem)" Instarem already has been featured on Swell 2018 and in the Ripple drop, but are not xRapid partners as far as I know.
  15. From their press release: "Technology powering the payment processing platform jointly developed by MUFG and Akamai capable of processing over a million transactions per second" I guess not. https://www.mufg.jp/english/vcms_lf/news/pressrelease-20190212-001-e.pdf edit: This already has been discussed before:

  17. One of the worst solutions in my opinion. I think it would also be more realistic that if major banks have a contract with ripple that they will have a option on XRP for a specific price. I believe at some point in time there were some rumors that a big chunk of the 60B XRP was mostly "under option" in contracts with banks and other institutions. As usual these rumors are supported with air, and should not be taken seriously. But from a business perspective it would make a sense. When making a deal with something that is not that valuable at the time but has great potential in the long run having optional buys in a contract is quite attractive. If I were to work at a bank and had to make a deal with Ripple I would definitely vouch for it to be in the contract. :D
  18. A bit off topic, but why are crypto exchanges investing so much? I've seen so many projects being funded by them. Do "normal" exchanges this as well and become a investment/venture capital company?
  19. And not to forget that at this point so many predictions have been made that statistically speaking a certain percentage actually will appear to be true even though the reasoning behind it is based on nothing. To me it seems like most XRP celebs have a really strong cognitive bias and see everything they experience/read as something that is connected to XRP. In general their null hypothesis is that something is related to Ripple/XRP while this should be alternative hypothesis. Always assume something is not true until it is proven beyond reasonable doubt. (no, unproven rumors or "news" without a credible source are not beyond reasonable doubt)
  20. Supply is not in $, its the amount of XRP. But you are correct about the increased supply,
  21. In my eyes the next crash will be caused by unsustainable government/country debt. Since the crisis of 2008 many countries have seen their debt increase significantly and only few were able pay off these loans in the past 10 years. Soon markets will realize that the current so called "Strong economy" is just inflated/sustained by counties pumping money into it that they don't have. I might be thinking too negatively, but I just don't see how the current situation can be fixed without a massive crisis and maybe even changing the whole financial system (Like the IMF is talking about). ps. This does not mean that Crypto/XRP will benefit from this.
  22. Misschien dat ik ook kan komen, hangt er een beetje vanaf hoe m'n examens zijn gegaan. Het lijkt mij in ieder geval heel leuk!
