  1. Appreciate the escrow release history (and summary so far)
  2. http://galgitron.net/Post/To-Be-a-Security-or-Not-to-Be Sir Galgitron's take on the matter

  5. From 2/5/19 While Katz would not reveal the size of Raised in Space’s coffers, he says, “We plan to make six-to-10 very well thought-out investments per year in the range of $500,000 to $5 million and we are completely prepared financially to do that for the next five years or more.” He also would not divulge what percentage Raised in Space would take of the companies in which it invests. Raised in Space has already looked at “dozens and dozens of companies” to potentially invest in over the last few weeks, Katz says, adding, “We’re also looking at companies that aren't even focusing their technology on music. My team and I will look at each other and go, ‘Whoa! That could be incredible in the music industry,’ so our scope isn't narrowed just to companies who are creating products for music; it’s companies that have incredible technology that can fit into music powerfully.” As far as the unique company name, it comes from Katz’s desire to align with innovative, forward thinkers. “The world is divided into two halves. One half of the population is still held down by the gravitational pull of old school thinking and procedures,” he says. “Then you meet those people where they look at the world differently. They collaborate and innovate differently. Those people are just not from this planet. Those people are raised in space and that’s where [the name] comes from. It speaks to that population of guys and girls who are building the future, who aren't willing to be part of the old conversation.” I like Mr. Katz
  6. https://bitcoinmagazine.com/articles/stanford-student-calls-out-crypto-professor-inaccurate-bitcoin-lecture/ In January of 2019, student Conner Brown attended a guest lecture by a Professor Susan Athey at the University of Stanford Graduate School. She gave a presentation to his “Evolution of Finance” class titled “Blockchain and the Future of Finance.” According to Brown, the presentation contained “multiple misstatements” about Bitcoin and its fundamentals. You can view Susan Athey's full presentation here https://drive.google.com/file/d/1oLHfKorF3PVTZr4sTdMfmYlisNwNJLbB/view You can view Conner Brown's letter here https://docs.google.com/document/d/1MA5I08fBY-b_oOPm9drWZ523sdPVw5WBiD5y32SKsJU/edit
  7. Agreed. Also, Kitao is likely saying here that regulatory postponement is a blessing in disguise, because it gives the men in the trenches and on the front line more time to develop, perfect, and deploy practical use cases, before the next surge that will follow regulatory certainty. Lets get the kinks out the best we can before we get the green light.
  8. I am 68 years old, but I have been watching the world markets such as 'stock market, bond market, interest rate movements, currency markets' everyday everyday for more than 40 years. From the time I entered Nomura Securities in 1974, I have been sleeping for 4 and a half hours. I think that there is not anyone who can easily win me in the "intuition and market trends" Pssh...amateur We need somebody like Justin Sun!! /s

  10. Thanks for the slides Found something interesting on slide 138, titled Promoting utilization of Corda and XRP on S Coin platform as a new mechanism XRP, as the first cryptocurrency supported by Corda Settler, demonstrates a high affinity with Corda First, here's an analogy: an opioid drug with a high affinity for the opioid receptor (naloxone) will displace ANY drug with a weaker affinity (heroin, morphine). This is precisely why naloxone i.e. Narcan is used to rescue people in the middle of an opioid overdose. Naloxone wins, heroin loses, problem solved XRP will win, along with the other native coins to the S platform (S coin, UC Daiba coin) Other forms of crypto and traditional assets, although technically still able to use the settler, will lose
  11. You are my hero @Hodor I made an account just to come here and say that. Well, that and also to start actively contributing to the community through this forum. This community is hands down the best in the entire crypto ecosystem in terms of leadership (ripple/coil/w3c/SBI), innovation (wietse wind, xpring), education (you!), and spirit (everybody else on discord, youtube) I've been consuming your blog for nearly two years now. That first post of yours that gave me that light-bulb moment was one that covered the announcement of the escrow in May '17. Ever since, I've been obsessed with learning everything there is to know about blockchain and digital assets and how this tech could apply to my career. I'm a graduate student in Pharmacology researching pain and addiction, specifically opioid receptor signaling at the molecular level, and I collaborate with chemists to develop safer and more effective opioid analgesics. Everyday more than 100 people in the US alone die from an opioid overdose...and everyday (in my free time) I think critically about how blockchain tech and this new and emerging infrastructure will employ true democratic principles, aligned incentives, transparency, etc... that could allow for unprecedented collaboration in biomedical research, expedite the tedious drug development process, and expand access to mental health care. Anyway, for my first post I just thought I'd add my two zerps and express my gratitude for all that you do to educate and your optimism. Cheers!
  12. Hello, My name is Stella Blue Zerps, and I am a Zerpaholic. It feels good to be here, with all you Zerpaholics. I have a hunch we'll get along and all get by just fine.
