    Roaring_Twenties got a reaction from Julian_Williams in XRP News Update: May 19th, 2019   
    Couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw your post just now @Hodor. Like everyone else here I’m amazed at your ever increasing productivity. I’m sure Ripple is doing what they can to see if they can out run you. I’m confused on who to root for...
    Loved this little gem of yours:
    “In March of 2018, I covered how Polysign was ramping up its project staff in preparation for development.   Now, over a year later, it's intriguing to hear David Schwartz avoid the topic with such self-restraint.”
    Looking forward to learning what’s been going on and having it explained in simple English so even I can understand...most of it.
    And this simple observation of yours:
    “David Schwartz is a visionary, and we would all be wise to listen to his message, no matter our personal take on banking or traditional finance.”
    Yeah...he’s still an unknown to the world. Mention names like Bill Gates, Steve Jobs, Mark Zuckerman and Jeff Bezos, and most people are likely going to be able know who your talking about to tell you the dent they made on society. The name David Schwartz is inbound to that list.

    I agree with you guys saying that some in the room would no doubt be locked in old paradigms.
    But in this case I don’t think the question is as dumb as it sounded.  These guys are discussing reworking international finance... that’s a big big thing and you really don’t want to get it wrong.  The central part of many of the roles of those in that room is to ensure stability.
    In my opinion when he said ‘run in ripple’ he actually meant ‘run on XRP’.  Which is an odd wording but I believe he was trying to say this:
    “What happens if we do reorganise world finance and cross-border trade is done largely (or exclusively?) by exchanging XRP programmatically.  Obviously the liquidity of xrp will be huge because of the volumes.  And price will be higher providing the liquidity need.  Now what happens if,  two years after maxing out on this new system,  there is a crisis of confidence in the XRP asset?  For some reason people fear it’s value won’t hold so the sell their holdings.  The price collapses.  A run on ‘ripple’.
    That process would dry up the liquidity that the xrp cross border solution requires to operate.  Is there a mechanism of last support like there is in existing financial engineering?”
    When put this way it’s a reasonable question to ask, and there will need to be a good answer.  I’m guessing the answer will involve the IMF somehow having custody and capacity with an XRP pool.
    I’m just trying to say that assuming he meant Ripple the company, and not ripple (XRP) the asset, is probably incorrect in my opinion.  And if you elaborate his shortcut phrasing,  it does become a serious question.

    The charts are looking doing exactly what one would expect considering how the bitcoin price has behaved when the 100, 200 and 300 Day EMA's approach and cross.  We should see prices increasing with periodic volatility around the interaction of these Averages.  In about of Month the price will be far above these averages and they will no longer be useful so we will have to look to other indicators.  
    Last week I had an exchange with @Warg discussing the growth patterns of bitcoin/crypto and how they will not continue indefinitely.  @Warg correctly stated that we can not expect the kind of growth the sector has experienced in the past to continue forever and I basically replied, "Yeah but the past patters will probably play out until we bitcoin/crypto has saturated the economy."  So - how close to saturation are we??
    According to this Article from April 30, 2019.  11% of American's own bitcoin which fits in with this other article by written last October Stating that Coinbase had 25 million users. However the article from Bitcoin Market Journal states claims 5% of Americans own bitcoin.
    https://cointelegraph.com/news/11-of-americans-own-bitcoin-major-awareness-increased-since-2017
    https://bitsonline.com/coinbase-25-million-users/
    https://www.bitcoinmarketjournal.com/how-many-people-use-bitcoin/
     
    Regardless note that most of the bitcoin users are relatively young and the young control relatively very little capital. 
    https://research.stlouisfed.org/publications/economic-synopses/2017/02/24/aging-and-wealth-inequality/
    So basically a few young people (who really don't control much capital) are invested in it and the Old that control most of the capital are not involved in it. 
    I'm gonna guess the growth pattern repeats 2 more times before price levels out.  Thoughts?

    I think you have a 60% + chance of being right for the rest of 2019 and first half of 2020 and we will see growth unfolding along the pattern of previous bull markets.   I think the type of investor will be changing dramatically over the next two years, and this will have a disruptive effect on your expectations as they take over control of the market.  Overall, after the financial sector  digitalise and join the internet, they will rule the market.  The impact will be huge on the crypto that they choose to promote, of which XRP is the obvious horse for us outsiders to back.  This time the lead may come from Japan, Far East and developing countries and even India, with the EU and US dragging their feet over regulation but eventually joining too.
    I think the accuracy of your your predictions to date have been epic.

    At some point the picture changes in a fundamental way as what we have now (sheer speculation) is replaced by utility (or possibly lack thereof in many cases)..
    That's when BTC correlation will go away, no matter what ultimately happens with BTC itself. 
    A lot of questions we have now will be answered.
    Will XRP become the cash of the internet?
    Will blockchain technology change the way the Web works. Will it be decentralized?
    If not, I expect the gains will stop being so spectacular, and they will accrue to companies that have found use cases that are highly valuable, the kind that disrupt existing methods of handling data in the business sectors where they make the most sense, Real estate, insurance, medical records, things like that.
    I do like to look at the way cryptos might behave according to theories like the Technology Adoption Cycle and the Gartner Cycle. 
    I expect that you might be right. This might even be the LAST extremely speculative wave in the crypto market. There will no doubt be other waves, but maybe with very different drivers and a very different chart. imho.

    I find it extremely weird and even slightly disturbing (a la Idiocracy) that anyone thinks this is how markets work. 
    These markets will likely need years of distribution, and several boom/bust cycles, to be able to sustain massively higher prices ($xxx++) without absurd selling pressure. It’s not something that can remotely be sustained with short term price spikes.

    Another reason "Shane Ellis Theory" is ridiculous:
    The reason markets are liquid around the current price and not hundreds of dollars above it is because -- news flash! -- current price is where successful orders are likely to happen. If we climbed up 20 cents, a new set of market orders (buy and sell) would crop up, as people sought to place successful orders. This isn't rocket science.

    People are used to a certain way of understanding something and if it doesn’t match what they know to be the best way in their “understanding of it” they reject it.
    Keeping on point with the Swiss, an example from the late 60s: the “quartz crisis “.
    “In 1962, the Centre Electronique Horloger (CEH), consisting of around 20 Swiss watch manufacturers, was established in Neuchâtel to develop a Swiss-made quartz wristwatch, while simultaneously in Japan, Seiko was also working on an electric watch and developing quartz technology.”  
    So the Swiss were early pioneers in quartz watch engineering but by the late 60s early 70s the Japanese were suddenly renowned in quartz watch production.
    Why? Were the Japanese smarter? Were they suddenly better at watch manufacturing than the Swiss? No. They weren’t hindered by their paradigms.
    To Swiss watchmakers the quartz watch was viewed as nothing more than a novelty. After all it had no spring. It could be cheaply produced and sold. It required no series of precision made gears, in fact no internal moving parts of any kind. How could it be viewed as any good?
    Swiss watch makers had enjoyed decades of a prosperous monopoly having 50% of the global market while commanding good money for their quality time pieces. To the Japanese, a quartz watch made perfect sense. Durable, reliable, fast, easy and cheap to produce and sell. Their approach was to fill a massive global need for low cost yet accurate and durable time pieces. They had no paradigm to break. They only saw value. They boldly challenged the experts paradigm.
    The result was a Japanese revolution in production and a decimation of Swiss watch maker jobs in under a decade.
    While possibly not the best explanation of what happened Wikipedia has an article that’s pretty good:
    https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quartz_crisis
    Point being with all this is I think we’re witnessing a like-revolution happening before our eyes. It’s harder for us to see perhaps because of NDAs and the secretive nature of finance but I think the future shows its hand every once in a while. The gentleman’s question reminds me of a like experience in Switzerland where being blinded by ones paradigm can obscure what is presented and end in dire consequences.
    The good news is Ripple is steadily converting those who originally didn’t see the value and those that do get often become the best supporters.
