  1. Would love to find a record of the live stream for this as I did get to ask my question to the SEC Chairman and would love for you to see his response. I asked “will” and “when”. As Brad Garlinghouse follows you I’ll ask this question: Will the SEC make a ruling on XRP and if yes, when might that be? He answered for about 60 seconds but he basically didn’t answer the question and said that he really couldn’t (but I don’t know why). I was going to ask Brad: As the global economy is experiencing a liquidity crisis as evident by the Federal Reserve pumping billions to assist in liquidity, could this be the catalyst for truly launching XRP usage? I wasn’t able to be called on in asking my question by the moderator but another person asked a like question. Brad said he could see XRP as a part of the solution. If someone can find a record of these two live streams that will give the clearest information.
  2. Listening to Jay Clayton, Chairman, Securities and Exchange Commission. Clearly very guarded on the topic of things that can be both a commodity and a security. Talking only about financial assets and not crypto at the moment. I’ll see if I can ask about XRP if I get the opportunity. Brad Garlinghouse follows him.
  3. Seems like clarity for a digital asset that doesn't yet have regulatory clarity. He doesn't seem like a person who would join the team otherwise.
  4. And if it does... I must.backup.thetruck...and buy MOAR!
  5. I think the Libra white paper has been a blessing and that we’ve likely experienced it’s best use case to date. I don’t see the Libra proposal much helping or hurting XRP going forward.
  6. See if this image shows XRP as third in volume...
  7. Well @Hodor, Your alter ego will be missed. I’ve become convinced that the avatar you’ve used is in your likeness. To suddenly see the real man behind the brilliant writing may take a bit of getting used to (unless of course you’re a gorgeous stacked blonde in actuality) then this gets even better. Some how though... I don’t think that’s how this all pans out. And referring to you in your real name? Ugh...many things to relearn. Best wishes in your new approach, I look forward to seeing you cover the growing explosive developments and growth of XRP as the guy who used to be @Hodor
  8. I hear you @RandyMarsh, my experience as well until I utilized the ignore option. Now XRP Chat is so much nicer to check into because I’ve turned off the troll noise as they appear. Simply go to the three horizontal bars in the upper right hand corner, select Account, Ignored Users, Add new user to ignore list by inputting their name and then select the options you wish to ignore. I select them all for maximum stupidity protection. As they appear just add them to your list. Soon the noise stops as you update your list. I know that there are those who enjoy a good troll engagement and I do find them to occasionally be entertaining but to me they are as a added value as a fly bothering you while eating. Perhaps the ignore function will be of benefit for you.
  9. I’m not the sharpest tool in the shed, the brightest bulb in the pack and I’m as far from insider knowledge as one can get but, I believe this whole thing kicks off when the next liquidity crisis begins in earnest. But it’s just my suspicion unbacked by anything other than how I suspect it will play out. “If it’s solving a real world problem...”
  10. Yeah. Like thats a big deal. Finastra. It’s only “one” more partnership... https://www.ripple.com/insights/ripple-to-bring-blockchain-technology-to-finastras-banking-customers/ ...times a few more customers.😁 “Finastra has over 9,000 customers, including 90 of the top 100 banks globally.” https://www.finastra.com/about/our-story Back to the OP’s point for BoA, I think it’s great to see BoA coming around. Here’s another recap that’s likely been viewed by many here:
  11. Why send him an email? Go for it. You’re here. It’s not a question of attacking anyone or someone not getting asked to offer support of their claim. People are free to DYOR and encouraged to look far and wide for their sources. Some sources are more reliable than others. We each get to decide who’s worth listening to and learning from. https://mobile.twitter.com/LeoHadjiloizou/status/1181637237282398208?ref_src=twsrc^tfw|twcamp^tweetembed|twterm^1181637237282398208&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.xrpchat.com%2Findex.php%3Fapp%3Dcore%26module%3Dsystem%26controller%3Dembed%26url%3Dhttps%3A%2F%2Ftwitter.com%2FLeoHadjiloizou%2Fstatus%2F1181637237282398208
  12. That’s it. Yuri said it. Game over man, game over! So glad that stupid stuff like paying attention to anything knumbnuts “Yuri” writes doesn’t phase me in the least. But let’s play Coolioz Troll Advocate and say it’s the gospel. Are we doomed? No. Just as @Caracappa points out, we’ve been told repeatedly the first step is to get the banks on the new rails (RippleNet) and let the change in doing business begin. Once the early adopters are ready they’ll begin pressing their advantage by leveraging the performance of XRP. Once their advantage becomes uncomfortable, the late majority begin utilizing XRP. Same can be said for central banks. Once one central bank leverages XRP the others will have to remain competitive. Or...feel free to listen to Yuri. For me, I think listening to David Schwartz is a much better source. Cheer up Yuri, it’s all going to work out fine.
  13. Hmm... This role leads for the Ripple Project... Responsible for driving product strategy and growth... Develop strategic roadmap... These action snippets don’t come across to me as very entry level. Great to see BoA working this direction. Even hardened anti-XRP supporters must be reading in disbelief... and that’s OK with me. Everyone’s entitled to their own assessment as to what this means. To me it means BoA is getting on board.
  14. OK, back to meeting the random wealthy...on 16 September 2019, I’m off to one side of a very crowded corridor of the Gaylord National Resort & Convention Center in MD (by DC in the US) and all of a sudden this dude plows straight into my back. Being the gentleman that I am I turn around to ask WTF dude? only to come face to face with a very apologetic Sir Richard Branson. Couldn’t have gotten a chance to actually meet the man if I tried but when he runs into you and apologizes, you get a brief and awkward encounter and handshake. Yes, a very nice guy. And it’s the oddest things you notice: he was rushing to be in position to give his key note address and he had a drop of coffee or tea stain on his white shirt. I couldn’t help but ponder: here’s a billionaire about to go on stage and he’s at the mercy of the little things in life just like all us pre-rich Zerpers. We now return to...Charting the course of XRP, already in progress.
  15. So...you’re telling me there’s a chance...? Yes!!! PS Not financial advice...but it would be phenomenal if it or any action like it turns out to be true in the future.
