  1. Hey Everyone, I got into XRP back in 2017 and followed every move for about 2.5 years. This led to a burnout and since then have basically kept my XRP in a wallet and decided to just hold on, most if it is actually escrowed and I can't even touch it for several years. That being said, besides the major notifications like SEC Lawsuit and token drops I haven't done any deep dives or kept up (even try to stay off the cesspool that is twitter). Ripple has been unsurprisingly quiet regarding their progress and any developments around XRP (thanks lawsuit). How does the community (especially the OG's here) feel about Ripple's progress over the last year and the ecosystem around XRP. Is it moving forward like how Dillip Rao, Navin Gupta, and others have laid out in the past? Connectivity first, laying out the train tracks, and then moving the freight (XRP) later on? Does XRP adoption seem more probable (excluding SEC)? Is the "Holy Grail" of banks holding XRP and saying will you take "100 Million worth of Lira in XRP" still a possibility? Sorry for all the questions, would just be nice to have a feel for where everyone is at. This won't lead me to any financial decisions, like I said, years ago I escrowed most of my XRP and plan to hold on until 2025ish.
  2. I know this is a few months old but I want to help out anyone that I can. I also used harbor wallet by secure blockchains but I used it to set up escrows that were based on time and password. Harbor wallet was absolutely legit and they did not do any "scamming" they simply shutdown. I was able to move my main wallet over to Xumm using the secret key. Harbor wallet also created an escrow release tool in the event of their demise (thank goodness because I was screwed). If it is against the rules please delete but below is the github repository I used to get my XRP out of escrow because nothing else worked: https://github.com/SecureBlockChains/SBCEscrowReleaseTool I hope this helps even one other person.
  3. Yo @DirectorCoulson, you can't start out every post the same way, it becomes too obvious you started a second account.
  4. I think the doubling of "maximum transaction" size is very interesting. I wonder how they are determining what the maximum should be. Is the technology identifying what the order books can handle at any given moment and determining the most cost efficient route or is this Ripple and the working exchanges actively deciding what buttons to press this week?
  5. I think if we were to say 100% we would be lying to ourselves, however, with the XRPL being completely visible the creators of this scanner put some rules in place to be as accurate as possible.
  6. Good Morning Everyone, If you have been on this forum for more than a few months you know by now that ODL usage seems to be rising at a rapid pace. So far today, $9.34M has already been sent through ODL and we are clearly on pace to set a new daily ATH. As with most trials/expirements the strategy would be to start slow and ramp up as they validate that accuracy, speed, and cost savings are delivered by the technology. What other insights have any of you out their gathered from the timing, size, and corridors of these ODL transactions? Is there a specific reasoning we are most recently seeing $100K transactions going through ODL? Any insights to spur conversation around growth of ODL, potential strategies, and possible limitations would be greatly appreciated by myself and the forum I am sure.
  7. Well there goes my ******* $4 call options expiring on 2/21. Was straight gambling on a big announcement, doesn't matter if it comes a week late.
  8. I'm looking forward to this earning call but I think the Q1 2020 earnings call will be the real decider. There will have been a significant chunk of $ sent through ODL at that point which will give insight to how it effects the bottom line.
  9. I literally can't comprehend why this is still a talking point surrounding XRP beyond. If you invested in a emerging asset class with the expectation of high returns and without the expectation of incredibly high risk you are a moron. If you didn't understand or ignored the fact that one of these risks could be that Ripple is a renegade company looking to bamboozle thousands of investors with the largest ponzi scheme ever then you are a moron. Even though I am a huge investor in XRP the truth is that this "investment" is a gambling with better odds than a lottery ticket. If you are making this gamble you must accept a few things: 1.) The largest owner of the underlying asset on this gamble is a corporation who, in their own interest, wants the price of XRP to rise substantially but will use its value periodically to drive an ecosystem that will make that happen 2.) There are incredibly large risks related to regulations and these regulations must be set ACROSS THE GLOBE 3.)Even if the first two come to fruition, there is a chance some competitors product is chosen as "The Standard" over Ripple's solution
  10. UTILITY!!!! Welcome to the future. There has never been a more exciting time in the crypto space for XRP than now! 2017? **** that, what you are seeing today is value, actual value being provided to real companies using a digital asset. XRP is driving cost reduction for cross border payments and businesses can see the savings. Volume is ramping up day after day and this is just the beginning.
  11. It was not, I know your position well enough on these forums. It is the others who continue to show up with zero knowledge and are spreading fud or are straight out ignoring the fact that ripple started from a ceo and two devs with a vision for an internet of value and today are meeting with the largest central banks and figure heads around the world. If anyone out there doesn't think the largest players in the game aren't watching Moneygram's development like a hawk over the next 3-4 quarters they must be looney.
  12. Complainers, whiners, or fudders, I don't really know what is going on around here. What I do know is Ripple first built the technology (step 1), then they had to build their network and onboard customers (step 2), and just now we are starting to see the fruits of their labor. The first "insignificant" tricklings of drops of ODL in the vast ocean of cross border remittances. Every day growing slightly larger as the faucet opens to those willing to test the water. These are the days we will look back on and say wow at one point only $6MM in volume happened a day in ODL? This feels like being in the early days of the internet but we know what is coming down the road. Banks and remittance companies will become greedy, demand to save money, they will pile on to use ODL and cut costs by 50%-70%. Market makers will be forced to hold more and more XRP to ensure they have enough on hand to manage all of the cross border flows and then on the tide of demand will we see our little XRP's value rise. If you can't see how early we are in this, how Ripple has been successful so far in each step of the way, and finally what is now increasingly likely going to be the future of cross border payments then why do you keep showing up here?
  13. I really wish xrp holders wouldn't argue the idea that XRP should have probably been deemed a security up until a year or two ago. The truth is that while "Ripple" didn't create XRP, a lot of founding members absolutely did and sold it to raise funds and drive their company forward. Since then, this has drastically slowed down and almost completely halted. I own XRP because I believe regulators will understand that the benefit XRP can provide to the world will one day outweigh the cost in damages Ripple may have done by selling an unregistered security for a few years. I think the idea that owning XRP doesn't give you a right to earnings in Ripple means XRP is not a security is backwards way of thinking. The truth is at one point it probably should have and Howie's test SHOULD have determined it a security. A lot of powerful and smart people have kept it, thus far, from being deemed so and I am incredibly grateful.
  14. It is a very rough time line but has aligned with what we are seeing in the world today.
  15. Out of all the bullshit timeline predictions and "this should be our year" hoopla, there has only been 1 timeline I give any credence to and it comes from Deloitte. You can look up the video on youtube, just search "deloitte temenos ripple". There is a cut down video of about 6 minutes where the gentleman covers their estimated timeline for blockchain usage back in 2016 and how they see this whole thing playing out. He has basically been spot on, probably because he works for one of if not the largest consultancy groups in the world and has direct bank contacts. He mentions the movements of assets across a blockchain around roughly 2021 and full adoption shortly thereafter.
