  1. Vertical integration might be of strategic value. It might allow Ripple to leverage their core competencies in other markets and increase their value creation. Ripple will be able to get closer to the end customer and get valuable feedback from customers that will allow them to improve their products. Literature suggests that having control of overlapping input and output domains enhances an organization's competitive advantage in its core domain and creates new opportunities for value creation. Therefore I do think that it makes sense for Ripple to buy MoneyGram, the advantages for both parties can be huge as cost savings might be realized and the overall competitiveness increases. The opportunities are great, but with a depth of 1 billion dollars from MoneyGram it will bring its risks too. I am also curious about how competitors think about this. Will we get a similar situation as seen with Apple and Spotify? Maybe? Are competitors willing to take that risk?
  2. I thought it was fake, but it is not: https://www.facebook.com/donate/280231332752230/ Ripple donated money to this charity apparently.
  3. "The “escrow queue” is implemented differently than announced, leading to a faster future release of escrowed funds compared to the announced schedule" I see this as a positive development, it suggests that they are expecting that resources are needed earlier than anticipated.
  4. You should have wrote off your investment from the beginning, that's what I do with highly speculative investments.
  5. I can also remember this quite well, I felt quite sad at that time when so many alt coins were pumping like hell and XRP was just sitting there being dead. It is clear that in the last two months XRP has been outperformed by almost every coin. Setting aside your emotions is key to not react on these short-term events that have no influence in the long-term performance of an asset. IMO XRP is still positioned to outperform all coins in existence in the long run.
  6. I hope you are right. I personally think that this is also the moment were we would see a more significant price increase of XRP as Ripple will no longer be able to fulfill the demand, the market will be the place where institutions will have to go if they want to purchase XRP. Exciting times ahead, all we need to do is wait and let Ripple do their thing.
  7. https://bithomp.com/explorer/FEFD7BF9D850B73819F61A82AC0F98D003DAA603C11A38FC33BE18BB4A903D3C https://bithomp.com/explorer/342E9A5132AEBC20F097C7DB7E20831EEACA5129DA2C5F89BEAEB176A9D7E766 https://bithomp.com/explorer/99204B490DD7DB2260CB5828D6C05F24DA628CAF334694AA3D2E842137C3FF7C Seems like 700M has been escrowed this month again, I'm not 100% sure if I found all transactions.
  8. They did mention during Ripple regionals London 2019 that they were expanding their service to 10 countries before the half of this year. I am not saying this therefore must be xRapid, but they already had the UK and it definitely is not unthinkable that Australia has been added to their service.
  9. If we look at the definition of Venture capital at Investopedia.com we get the following: Sure GV can sell their shares and make an "exit", but in general VC investors do this this at moment the company gets an offer from a bigger company or when it goes public on the stock markets. There is no such thing as "google killing ripple", this is only done with projects they develop internally.
  10. Why would the SEC be influenced by some class actions? I don't see the point in waiting, who knows how many companies are going after Ripple in the coming decades... Law makers should be ahead to prevent things like this from happening, this is only evidence that they are not doing their job properly. They should really come with some clarity about this matter asap.
  11. Bears are getting starter, they created this topic to figure out how low they need to go to get us to fold! I will not participate in informing the enemy.
  12. So sadly this is the case, I think this will really limit the adoption.
  13. 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.

  15. 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.
  16. 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.
  17. 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.
  18. Jup: Singapore Dollar, Vietnamese dong, and Indonesian Rupiah.
  19. 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.
  20. The company name reminds me of the game Stronghold, man I love that game.
  21. 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.
