    Roaring_Twenties got a reaction from ADingoAteMyXRP in Does XRP Threaten USD’s International Status?   
    Grow baby bear 🐻 grow! 
    I think you’re right about how US leadership sees XRP today. Maybe they’re slowly getting interested because they realize crypto is coming with them or without them but more importantly they’re looking for ways at taxing it.
    If they understand enough that they can tax it then they’re likely to be cooperative. I say US but I imagine that goes for everywhere.

    If somebody read that article and it had any effect at all on their opinion of XRP (either positive or negative)....
    I would recommend for them to sell immediately! (if they even have XRP to begin with)         
    If anybody is reading my post and has any type of confusion about what I am writing.... 
    then please refer to second line above.
    If you find yourself reading this over and over again due to the 4th line...
    refer to the second line....

    I would suggest massive debit threatens the USD.  Just as debit threatens many currencies. 
    XRP may play an important role in providing liquidity that the USD just can't do anymore...

    But I think the “term” is an important aspect for anyone putting money into XRP. It may still be a while yet before we’re in a position for great returns. 
    I think many here were convinced crypto was a get rich quick scheme and that’s why they bought. And depending on what and when you bought and sold that could be true. Yet I think this still has the potential to create generational wealth but that’s likely possible only for long-term digital asset investors.
    Three years from now things will be much clearer but three years in crypto is like 30 years for many. Seems odd to think that three years is in the ballpark for long-term consideration. Always a pleasure @Hodor. Many thanks!

    I nearly joined this forum in January 2018 with a post entitled "I sold my stack at the bottom - AMA" (sold most of my stack at around $1.05, average sell price of $1.10).  In the end, I couldn't even stomach writing such a thing...although I sold in panic, I was determined to profit from the bull run no matter what...and there were decent profits ALL of us who participated could have taken / did take.   The last 18 months have been pretty brutal, but if anyone has learnt anything it's to profit take because this is one incredibly manipulated market and you never know how long you will have to wait for the next opportunity.

    Roaring_Twenties reacted to Caracappa in 270 million more XRP circulating supply today than yesterday   
    Burning XRP to make the price go up sounds like an idea from an investor in XRP. Ripple is not aiming to just get the price up, but grow total liquidity. If all succeeds they may need the 100bln XRP.
    What I do see happening is that eventually Ripple could release custody of the escrow to a sort of Central Bank type or other IMF like institute so they can control the release in the future on a macro economic scale. It might even be a complete new type of institute responsible for doing that as long as it's not Ripple anymore to avoid a conflict of interest.

    This is an interesting concept, and the thought I had was 'one person handing off the actual crypto to the next generation.' 
    Fascinating to think of a younger generation being asked 'how did your grandfather make his money?' and the answer being 'he bought cryptocurrency when it was undervalued.'

    Yes...this is a new fear for me.  Just dawned on me the other day. 
    What if they took all the attributes of XRP and called it anything else so it's something we all don't own and distributed 100% of this new DA to those in power of global finance to make this all work?  Then they raised the value of the new DA somehow and we were all left standing in the wings?  I honestly don't know if any of this brain dribble is doable or if it's simply the equivalent of being afraid of the bogey man. Sounds like a conspiracy theory.  This reads like my first official FUD posting!  Must be getting close to moon...?

    Quite the opposite. I am a dutch banker and I tell you the banking world is winking towards digital assets. As they are a faster and cheaper way to transfer money. Just the supply of options and rumors is too broad. Some banks are working on their own ways to transfer money cheaper. One way or the other, prices of Cryptocurrencies will only redouble. Investment tip, and yes financial advice: Do not sell assets that find themselves in the red sea.

    Perhaps. I think the jury is still out on how this all plays out. I’m not an insider with any real intel. As far as I can tell there’s a lot of unknowns still. I think anyone making a call one way or another today still has an opportunity to be wrong. The one thing I don’t do is proclaim that I have all the answers. I’d ignore anyone here who claims anything with certainty.

    Not knocking you, but who were these experts that you talk of? I know stock brokers that wouldn’t touch crypto with a barge pole.
    I bought into crypto as a long shot and enjoy the excitement of it rising and falling, but surely any grown up would not have only listened to ‘experts’ that they have never met, nor experts that probably never called themselves experts and they probably always said “I am not a finacial advisor” etc etc.
    This is the wild west, which unlikely as it seems make us some profits, but more likely make most of us a  bunch of losses.
    We all must take responsibility for our own trading decisions not blame others.
    Good luck with your investments.
