  1. M-Pesa in Africa, trades mobile phone credits, like bank account credits, in small amounts. They are familiar with the concept of digital-non fiat- credits for settlement, due to this app. IMO this is what XRP needs to fill, familiarize low avg income folks, in many countries with XRP as a much more accepted/interchangable digital "credit" P.S. Oh, and XRP is cheaper, too, of course
  2. denverks, from the same article "The partnership combines Ria’s resources with Ripple’s network of 200+ financial institutions. For customers this would mean increased efficiency, speed, transparency and efficiency. It would also mean better visibility and end to end tracking. In addition to money transfers Ria now also offers bill payments, mobile top-ups, prepaid debit cards, check cashing, and money orders. The partnership has the potential to significantly reduce transaction costs for all of these transactions. RippleNet customers will benefit from Euronet’s Digital Integrated Payments Cloud and access to Ria’s global fintech ecosystem, enabling cross-border payments both ways. Interesting
  3. Not sure how that fits in, but I think "Warbler" on XRPChat, here. IS creator/Bithomp's guy. Interested in the thread info here because my brother has a "toast wallet".
  4. Hey, great topic! Interesting. But...Didn't Bob Way once say, loosely, something like : "We thought Arthur Britto was a god, because he'd bought BTC at $1". So Britto does not equal Satoshi if this is the case. Just sayin'
  5. Janna, fantastic stuff! So, not to get shot at here, you prompted me to think...If I were a French wine shipper, as you stated, and wished to use altcoin to offset possible losses, I'd be far more interested in a stablecoin, and I'm no fan of stablecoins. This is the first time I've figured out a use for the stinkin' things. The only way to retain currency arb with XRP, or BTC or etc, etc, would be to buy and reserve them NOW, before the flood into them, right??
  6. Either Terrible or Wonderful, not sure. Thoughts? https://www.yahoo.com/news/china-says-wants-eliminate-bitcoin-mining-042048924--sector.html May 7th is China Govt's decision date, evidently
  7. Great Q by OP XtraRarePeople. I'm by no means pumping this alt, but have seen NYC or New York Coin as interesting for a while, at one point they had a few NY business' on board to use. If you've ever been to New York city, you'd know why I thought this would take off, but so far, dud. Any of you much more savvy XRPChatter's wanna weigh in why not more interest? Thanks in advance P.S. it's up 89% as I typed this, but it'll lose it back. LOL
  8. Reminds me of boiler room BS. It that you Nathan Rothschild, back from the grave? You got some info on XRP's Waterloo outcome??
  9. To tweak something I've said before "All XRP transactions settle very quickly, and cheaply regardless of transaction value or remitter, or currency XRP was purchased in or is redeemed in." As long as this holds true, everyone else is simply competing with VISA, not XRP. VISA bought UKs EARTHPORT, by the way, outbiddding Mastercard by stupid money for the shares. You know who's been in bed with Ripple Labs a few years? Earthport. Wonder if they (Earthport) have some agreement to buy XRP at some price agreed to circa 2014?? Go VISA! (too) PS Original poster, I'd posit, is a BUYER of XRP. I say, Transferwise "Pthlllllllll whateva' "
  10. From a 2015 article in an online Journal: "But I would suggest that Blackrock’s influence is every bit as significant as JPMorgan, Goldman Sachs, and Morgan Stanley put together. In the past I have written that BlackRock is one of the Big Four - a group of huge financial holding companies that control many sectors of the economy in the US and abroad. Other members of the Big Four also include: the Vanguard Group; State Street Corporation; and FMR Corporation (Fidelity)..." Blackrock's Big time From the same: "...former Fed chairman Paul Volcker, once called BlackRock the most powerful financial corporation in the world..."
  11. Good info JBW, TY. Read this few weeks ago, finally here. Have to use their Travala wallet for XRP(it's a refund point in the fine print) I guess? I couldnt find it. They are out of Malta, have the big cities USA, lots of Europe. Adoption's good, though!
  12. I guess what some Bitcoiners need to understand, is that once on an exchange, there is money made in call options, and put options, you can make money on the rise(call) and the fall(put). You could have bought the "Puts" at $19,000+, and you'd be kickin' ass! I don't own nor do I hate on Bitcoin, as many do on XRP, it is an important asset. Once the exchanges get control, IMO there will be no such thing as $50K BTC, they'll control it like fiat, and keep it range bound. There may still be some advantage in fighting inflation pressure against fiat, though (Think Zimbabwe or Venuzuela). Hope I'm wrong.
  13. Six international banks have reportedly signed letters of intent to issue their own stablecoins backed by their national fiat currencies on IBM’s now-live blockchain-powered payments network, “World Wire.” The news was jointly announced by IBM and Stellar during a keynote at Money 2020 Asia in Singapore, financial news channel Cheddar reported on March 18. So it Appears the big deal is: IBM= "We like blockchain, we gots us some blockchain for STABLECOINS and some banks will use it" Jed= "I helped 'em gots some blockchain, for STABLECOINS
  14. I found part of the info I wanted in your link, tev, TY!
