  1. This sounds right: https://www.ccn.com/ripple-expat-jed-mccaleb-ramps-up-cryptocurrency-sell-off-as-xrp-rallies/
  2. He didn't tell me anything that isn't outlined in is agreement with Ripple. That's where you should be looking for specific information. I don't remember how he described it, but it wasn't one specific charity but something with many charities underneath it, I think. I didn't ask any questions other than why he stopped selling and it was a simple answer of adhering to the agreement he made with Ripple. When that wallet sells, he will not. He has moved on. All of his XRP will be sold according to his agreement with Ripple. Both XRP and XLM are open source projects that some startups work with, simultaneously, and end up in the crossfire of people thinking it can only be one or the other. Stronghold comes to mind. Jed wanted to extend an olive branch. I was happy to accept.
  3. I made a hypocrite out of myself and asked him directly. I don't think what other people do with their crypto is anybody else's business and I am disappointed in myself for not maintaining that same position with Jed.
  4. At one point, Jed had donated a significant amount of XRP to some type of charity. In his agreement with Ripple, he won't sell XRP if that charity is selling. Either he can sell XRP or the charity, but neither at the same time. The charity was selling so Jed stopped. Once the charity stopped, he resumed. There is no reason to speculate on hidden agendas or secret plans. Both Jed and Ripple have moved on.
  5. I think it's strange how much people care about this. After carrying kids around on my right hip for so long, I am used to using my left hand for things. Since I don't actually have a camera crew that follows me around, that's how left-handed pictures turn out. I don't like posting pictures of myself nearly as much as people like to chide me for. I don't like it all. I hate it. Try and find a picture of me in my 20's or even in my early 30's. Do you think any woman thinks "Now that I'm 41, it feels like a good time to start taking pictures of myself to share online in a predominantly (young) male industry, filled with vitriol, that scrutinizes every breath I take, and actively hates me?" No. I do it DESPITE that. Contrary to what dude's with middle-aged, single mom fetishes may think, I post pictures for the women. Like attracts like. I want to be visibly present and this is the best that I can do. People who like to talk about all of the attention I crave are never able to explain why, then, have I turned down every single interview request over the years? I push myself to be as personable as I can be because I want to be understood and I want to be visible to the other "regular people" in the world. Agreed. I was embarrassed at some of the comments and behavior coming from XRP supporters. It would be analogous to one flavor of Bitcoin making fun of another flavor of Bitcoin because their mempool was full. Same thing could happen to you, dude. Even more importantly, those people failed to recognize that the Stellar network SUCCEEDED, as designed, and stopped forward progress until it was safe. That was a victory for anyone championing Consensus over PoW. Thank you for this. Up until recently, I have never *only* liked XRP. One of the main features of the XRPL that originally attracted me to it is that it's currency agnostic. I am uncomfortably open about things so people don't have to speculate. I try really hard to do the right thing, knowing full well that not only are strangers online watching closely and judging, but my 2 kids as well. They are teenagers now and I have to atone for all that I do. They read every word written about me. I am sad at the way Bitcoin turned out. I didn't get involved in crypto to make a financial investment. I have always been poor. When the financial/housing crisis hit, I had a baby and a toddler and I felt terrified and helpless. The houses on every side of me went into foreclosure. They stayed empty for a long time. When somebody bought the house next door, they bought it for $12,000. When learned about Bitcoin, I latched on like it was a life raft. This is the Bitcoin that I was out evangelizing for: The entire article is good but it turned out to be ********. I was hopeful when Bitcoin forked that there was a chance to salvage it, but then Craig Wright showed up and there was just more infighting than I have the energy and capacity for, mostly because being an XRP supporter has been so damn taxing as well. And it's gotten worse lately. Nonstop **** like this. I don't know why, but as crypto enthusiasts poor into this space and grow in their knowledge, thoughts and reasoning, new XRP supporters have taken a different route, embracing ignorance and deciding to hunt cartoon bears and create conspiracies instead. Jed reached out to me, in a sincere way, because he felt misjudged by me and wanted a chance to be heard. I have no reason to hate him and everything he touches into eternity. Life is short and I don't enjoy fighting with people or holding onto hate. The second news broke about Steller and IBM, everybody was trying to make it sound like a loss for Ripple/XRP. Good news for Stellar doesn't mean bad news for Ripple and vice versa. I'm not willing to spend one second getting into an XLM/XRP ******* match. And I don't want to participate in the cheering that goes on whenever another project stumbles. I learn by doing and I'm here to learn. Because, for the most part, if one of you gets screwed over, nobody will care. I have a small platform and try to use it to amplify the voices that don''t get heard. I disagree. Neither my opinion of Ripple nor XRP has changed. It's because I am secure and feel confident in XRP that I don't feel the need to hate everything that isn't XRP. There are lots of cool projects popping up everyday. I think it's exciting and I definitely want to be a part of it. I don't view crypto as a spectator sport.
  6. Explaining the mempool to my son, while his $20 Steam Game transaction was stuck, really hit home on how futile Bitcoin was. I do think kids are a great use case for crypto though. My kids always want to convert their cash into prepaid cards to make online purchases. It's expensive and it's a PIA. It was great when Steam accepted Bitcoin. They stopped though because of the high fees and transaction delays. I hope in the future they'll be willing to give XRP a chance to get it right.
  7. Thank you so much, @Roaring_Twentiesand @Truckdriver!
  8. This thread was created to make an unfounded and false accusation. Tiffany Hayden and XRPTrump are NOT the same person. Nothing in your response contributes to keeping THIS discussion honest.
  9. This is really disappointing. XRPTrump tagged me in a photo. End of story. My Nov stats weren't nearly as good.
  10. My comments weren't aimed at David Schwartz. I've been away from the forum for awhile and I was disappointed to see this thread. Do you enjoy watching personal attacks launched at me? I don't. It's painful and dehumanizing and almost unbearable at times.
  11. XRP vs Bitcoin They aren't competitive, they are complimentary. Believing otherwise, especially with an angry mob carrying pitchforks, only slows down progress. Tribalism is a dead end.
