  1. I didn't read the article, but Transferwise says that they are 8 times cheaper compared to "leading UK high street banks". That is only when they offer the service you require through their own services. If they don't have the 'corridor', they are still charging Swift costs, which are still ridiculously high. Transferwise still cannot compete against the rates that Western Union is offering though. Therefore, it's highly questionable if their business case can be competitive enough, especially when WU swings on xRapid (*he said hopeful*).
  2. McDonalds as Ripple partner must be true, cause price is -4%.
  3. How is this giving China advantages against the US? Sure they can have a better regulation in place than in the US, but that doesn't mean that the regulation is positive against cryptocurrencies. Besides that; having lots of blockchain related patents doesn't mean they need to be crypto related.
  4. Launching 26 fiat-backed stablecoins won't get you anywhere. You'll have a credit card which can handle all those coins. You can instantly swap funds from stablecoin to stablecoin. All this doesn't make any sense when you can hold one currency which can convert instantly into any fiat when having to pay with your credit card (or Wirex card)... Anyhow; let's face it. In order to get the XRP ecosystem healthy, we need regulation. Banks won't jump into something of which governments say it's no good. Even the most bullish bank in the world SBI is postponing constantly because of the insecurity of regulation. I am 100% sure that if good regulation gets through, there's nothing stopping XRP to be used by a majority of the worlds largest banks. Ripple is busy building the foundation while at the same time they are busy trying to get some kind of regulation. They know XRP needs it in order to get mass adoption. Whenever regulation is in place, the basis of the ecosystem is healthy and mature enough to launch properly.
  5. Facebook could, Facebook would. I can could and would as well, but that does not mean I will. Not getting any hopes up from this. This blog is just showing what could be possible.
  6. Has anyone read the book called The Tipping Point by Malcolm Gladwell? For those who did; I really have the feeling we're on the tipping point of XRP at this very moment. I have the feeling that all pieces - all parts needed to create an 'XRP Epidemic' - are slightly starting to come together. For those who haven't; big recommendation to read this book. Super interesting! A short recap of the book can be found here on Wiki. Cheers!
  7. What that means is that Euro Exim Bank is not really a Bank, but can only offer Money Remittance services? The only connection to being a bank is the actual word 'Bank' which is simply in their company name. Lol. The status they have is already active since Feb 2017 though.
  8. Because other banks charge reasonable monthly fees (3 EUR/Month) for functionalities that most consumers desire. I guess as suggested above, I am indeed not their target audience.
