  1. Coil’s business case doesn’t really appeal to me but I’m the same guy who could have looked at Netflix’s business case and say it doesn’t appeal to me when I’ve got a Blockbuster just down the street from me. I know this because the above analogy is based on actual history for me. Today I have Netflix and a slab of empty concrete sits where Blockbuster used to. Just because I don’t initially see or appreciate the value of something doesn’t mean others don’t. I think it’s more important to learn what’s valuable for the most influential generation of a time and follow those early adopters. If they like it then I like it and will invest in it. I think that’s what we have with the leadership at coil.
  2. Seems a little too general for me to answer correctly. How would we know cause and effect is strictly from Bakkt? Is there a specific time frame we would agree to measure from to claim it’s from Bakkt? How do we negate any positive or negative influences that occur in the same time frame to ascertain it’s from Bakkt? Don't get me wrong, I see Bakkt finally going live as beneficial to crypto and to XRP future value. I just don’t know how to measure or anticipate it’s positive influence on XRP price in any certain period of time. Maybe someone sees how it can be done...?
  3. I’d say that there’s a new Hungarian a hole on XRP Chat. I guess they wish to speak on our behalf.
  4. Thanks @Molten I expected this type of feedback. I agree that I’m likely mixing apples and oranges but when I look on the data tab it appears to me that it uses volume.
  5. Was going to ask this in new thread but when I searched “volume” it brought me to this thread so I’ll ask my question here. Hopefully I’m not interrupting this thread... I would just like any intelligent feedback on why volume is dipping down. I expected to see a gradual increase in volume but I know that I likely don’t have a complete understanding of how MG’s use could/should drive up volume. So to be precise: Shouldn't we be seeing a gradual increase in volume or are dips in volume on the way up to be expected?

  6. Awesome. A vibrant city. Go have some “beef on a leaf and kimchi” for me when you can. I absolutely loved doing that when I was there. I forget what it’s really called. Yep, toxic is a good descriptor. Enjoy yourself there!
  7. Hmmm...wouldn’t that automatically exclude 50% of us without calculating ones own wealth?
  8. I hope that @ 60c you recover everything if you’re clearing house. Crypto is too new to get a real educated guess on. Consider looking at the objective of Ripple and what they are up against. Remember the claim a couple years ago about this being a marathon based on what was known and perceived at that time. Consider a macro perspective vs trying to read crypto market or XRP short term performance. A great video to watch from someone who’s very positive on BTC, but who’s logic IMO is very applicable for XRP, is from a Thomas Lee of Fundstrat. I think he’s got a great perspective on what we’re in for and in my opinion it’s more long term than short term. Thinking long term is likely far more accurate for what we’re in for than suggesting we’re preparing for our moon shot. Take a look and see what you think: Hope all is well with you and yours.
  9. Welcome back @Seoulite Theres been a fresh cast of Debbie Downers who’s come to challenge and twist anything positive one posts into something one hasn’t intended to communicate. So you really haven’t missed much. Although Debbie was a real hoot! True story. Others who have tried to be positive on here a year ago have taken a break from dealing with those whose only purpose appears to be spread doom and gloom. @mrchamberlain comes to mind, he was great to be in here but he said he had enough and bailed. Anyone posting anything positive is high on hopium and will be called to the carpet by the Anti XRP Army for their crimes. (Standing by now to receive incoming fire... and not a fresh delivery of delicious hopium) Anyone challenging the Anti XRP Army will be met with swift resistance. Their skills range from p/ss poor to fairly good psychological ops. Other than that, all you’ve missed are a lot of great posts on development of the IoV. Welcome back. You in Seoul by chance?
  10. I can hear Bill Paxton's improvised and famous line from Aliens... “Game over, man! Game over! Now what the f@ck are we supposed to do?"
  11. Time to be disruptive in an environment that fears disruption. I embrace Ripple’s approach. Yes there’s risk and it’s time to throw in some good risk. Playing nice for a long time expecting regulators to do something useful with their thumb came with risk. Banks are risk adverse and thinking they would embrace this to improve their business model was risky. Now they to can become a customer for MG. Screw the laggards. God speed the risk takers. Throw the throttles up and let’s see what happens.
  12. So @xrpmommy asks if WU is beginning to see the light and I’ve watched the video twice now and reflected on what I’ve seen and heard and I’m going to go with no. I don’t think they are beginning to see the light. I’m going by the body language and say that it’ll possibly come with time but my take is they are still comfortable. It’ll take a significant increase in market share loss to be woken up. Still asleep in my opinion.
  13. Surely @K41105 and @Bystander can follow a thread...and understand the logic included after the quote. Or, maybe not. 😃
  14. That would be great progress in gaining institutional investment. And it's not a stretch to imagine the market overall getting a lift from just BTC futures interest.
  15. Excellent! Twiddles hands together like Mr. Burns...logs into Uphold and purchases $10K of XRP @ .26. That's the best financial advice I've heard all day... We'll see you in the future @baobeiiiii!
  16. Too funny! Same argument here. I ain’t paying for no cable TV! I sure as a heck ain’t buying no movie channel stuff! Heck no I ain’t spending more money just so we can all have better access to the dang Internet. And so...after I got done making myself perfectly clear, I signed up for like a bazillion channels, Netflix and the 1G fiber optic connection. Pretty sweet!!
  17. Thanks @JannaOneTrick - really appreciate seeing some clarity! Agreed @mistatee2000 - the USA govt regulators are still being laggards vs leaders.
  18. Oh god no. No more VET FOMO for me. I’m already whale status in my own mind. I start buying VET again and I influence the market. I stop buying and it’ll collapse. I’m staying on the sidelines and nurturing my fiat for a while. It’s taken a beating this month and needs time to heal. It keeps trying to turn into XRP at .29 and I’m having a hard time telling it to settle down.
  19. Ahhh, I knew there was risk in attempting to have a semi intelligent conversation with this one. Another BTC maxi from China...? Ignored.
  20. Thanks @Capone, I was really trying to get peoples perspective on my three questions after they read the case study. Yes, I’ve bought precious metals as well since 01 right after the .com bust. I’m not interested so much in the safer choice as I think the biggest percentage of growth is in the rear view mirror for BTC. I’m interested in potential growth and that to me means XRP.
