    Roaring_Twenties got a reaction from Julian_Williams in A Ripple strategy - mobile payments?   
    Many Thanks for the 5G analysis!
    A great way to feel better about what we’ve gotten ourselves into, especially with the never ending XRP sale price we keep being offered.

    They also have abandoned XRapid as a trademark, because they have moved on to "Ripplenet", and "Runs on Ripple".  xPool was part of a branding family - that family now goes under one name - Ripplenet.

    A smart CEO, like an Intelligent General, should know “No battle plan survives first contact with the enemy.”    Ripple strategy should not be the same as it was two years ago.
    There is a place for consistency, but being consistent is not the same as banging your head against a wall you know to be made of concrete.  Ripple have to push at doors that are least resistant, and move away from wasting energy pushing at doors that are firmly locked.  Sometimes the only way through a locked door is to go through a window, and unbolt it from the inside. 
    Obviously Ripple management were expecting bigger banks to adopt their services earlier, and Brad made a mistake in predicting more banks to come on board in 2019.  for all sorts of reasons his plans were thwarted, but the remittance corridors have been easier to woo .  So ODL has been released and is being expanded in the outer margins of cross border payments to countries ill-served by correspondence banking.  Mexico, the Philippines, soon Thailand, Vietnam and Cambodia.  India have signed up to Ripplenet but not yet ODL. 
    However you look at it Ripple have made impressive progress these last two years.  The price of XRP is not reflecting that success yet, which is why I go on investing.  I "ignore user" the trolls because they rarely bring interesting arguments or insight to how my investment is doing and divert attention from the bigger picture.  They often give themselves away in shows of open malice.
    Watch ODL, watch news of partnerships and plans for technologies that bring new solutions to old style businesses.  Watch for agility,  flexibility and purpose, and open and transparent management.  Ripple has all these things and XRP is always near the heart of their strategic methods.   They also have money and talent.

    Nothing has changed under the hood.  Their marketing strategy improved, though. ODL is xVia interfacing xRapid, with messaging by xCurrent.  Too many moving parts in their press, so they simplified and said, "Join Ripplenet and if you want, we can give you liquidity on demand, too."  It's a better elevator pitch.  
    The context of that tweet above suggests David Schwarz was opining that Ripple could not wait for the tweeter's friend's software to come out in 2021.  As of 2018, Ripple was in a hurry to gain adoption, not wait for Zillow in 2021.  I do think the next 2 years will be very important.  The dynamic increase in existing daily ODL volumes and looming new  corridors are adding exciting real world use.  
    Also, fwiw, xPool only existed as a trademark, and perhaps, existentially as an idea.  We still have no record of implementation, correct?

    I'm just glad to see that the top groups of holders are continuing to grow their bags.....I like that smart people seem to be quietly accumulating more and more XRP.  
    This is a great chart that shows that that on top (yes some are exchanges but many are individuals)......continue to buy more, and more, and more.

    I think I heard on Crypto Eri some time ago the plan is to get Singapore on ODL, and Singapore have regional subsidiaries with nostro-vostro accounts in the regions.  So Aus sends to Singapore and the money is paid out of a Singapore regional sub bank in a local currency in Thailand or Malaya.  The same goes for Japanese banks which have strong links with countries like Vietnam.
    The systems between old style correspondence banking an new style ODL will get integrated.

    My understanding is that Kitao is scared of the Chinese 51% control over BTC.  It is preventative of a huge scandal in cryptospace that would destroy all his plans.
    It is pretty impressive that this guy can be involved with a project to take 30% of BTC to America, and it is only a sideshow.  He is on the board of Ripple and Ripple/XRP seems to be his biggest passion in business.

    Very thorough piece posted today from the universally popular Galgitron. And only uses the word **** once lol.
    I like his analogy with the concept of the gravity of value, eventually winning the day.

    What's good for BTC is good for alts, until this market matures and changes in some fundamental way that reduces the BTC dominance. So I'm happy to see BTC looking bullish.  I don't love BTC, but it is part of my calculus, always.
    I've traded too much this week, but I did rush into XRP in hopes of a real breakout, which so far is not materializing. My tradable piece, which is only about 20% of my hodl, is now back in XTZ, although I probably should have gone 1/2 LINK and 1/2 XTZ.
    VET is 60% of my stash, and I'm not trading it at all, because I have invested in an additional X node. My only concern is that VET can hold this approximate level...which I do expect, since the hack couldn't take it back down. Lots of good news coming on utilization with VET too.
    XRP back to a distant 3rd in my portfolio, but I am willing and able to trade back into it if we start to see it get more bullish.
    I'm spending my VTHO now mostly for SHA, although PLA has turned up and looks like it should be bought too.
    The discourse on this thread today makes me very happy. To see opposing POV's presented with a good factual basis has been rare around here for months.
    BULLISH!!!!

    There is only one concern - is XRP a viable ODL technology that will be adopted by a slice of the cross border payments market? - clue it is already ramping up from a very low baseline.  No other company has announced they have plans to provide a competing ODL service that could scale up.
    After that, as a long term holder, it is only a question of on what platform the is a bouncing ball bounces.  The lower the platform on which it bounces the higher my returns.
    .....but to invest in the way I do you really have to believe that XRP is viable and launching
