  1. Well, if Bob was talking with them for 15 minutes i would agree with you but from what i have read, it seems he was revealing Teleporter to them for few hours at that time. I would be happy to hear his thoughts though...
  2. I am a little bit surprised that you talked like that with competitors. If ripple is not 5 years ahead, i would see that as a serious problem. IS RIPPLE REALLY 5 YEARS AHEAD? All the time i hear about changes in financial world and for sure you triggered them but i am really eager to see adoption NOW... One example of the changes you can see in the picture. I see this as building the infrastructure part of the process but hope ripple is involved as well... Thank you Bob for sharing your knowledge and i wish you the best.
  3. Thank you for all of your responses. Yesterday there was an interview online with David Schwartz. I have really enjoyed it a lot, he is fantastic, brilliant mind really and i recommend you all to see it. -Regarding Brad Garlinghouse, he said that 1 major bank will use xrp until the end of 2018. You can say whatever you want about him but he was hyping and i dont like it... as well as him talking about "taking a flight with suitcases full of money" for 2 years. I apologize for my desire to hear more about ripple progress. Ripple doesnt really say much about their projects, news and communication can be much better. In the end this is the reason why Bob is here. - Ripple is solving settlements, not payments. Payments are years ahead of settlements. -I personally see Jed Mccalleb is a threat. He is obviously an expert in different areas and all of his work and projects confirm that. He did not receive most xrp for a pretty face... - motivation... in general people are more motivated when they have nothing. I agree with you that many people are involved, etc... But how many people are working for ripple? 200? Cmon, this project is changing the world, it is potentialy most significant change in the history of the mankind and 200 people involved through ripple is nothing for that scope. Also, check out ripple youtube channel. They post rarely but look at the interviews and ripple drop episodes- i dont care really about London office interior. I want to hear about news, project, what the hell is going on and why nobody is using xrapid... - there Will be a next bull run for sure simply because as you have said 95% of people dont know about crypto and in the last bull run, many were not involved since the process of buying crypto was too complicated and risky, long verifications, there were no xrp/usd eur pairs... Etc... - regarding ripple vision... If something is working great for you, it is lucrative, why to change it? Banks are the institutions that are least likely to change. Financial world is the least likely to change and yet is the most powerful... changing the unchangable... Was changing the unchangable the best approach? I am not really sure... Was there another way? I dont l know honestly but i know that ripple's way is one with danger all around... And i am asking questions here to ask what do others thimk about that... Also, regarding Brad Garlinghouse... Yahoo and AOL failed to be no. 1 and i want ripple be no. 1 so please dont hate for asking logical questions... Also, Xrp is better than btc for so many reasons and if there was decent infrastructure (crypto exchanges with minimal comissions, ATM's), people would already use xrp all around the world and western union, PayPal would already be history. Banks can afford comissions, fees, etc-they charge it to their clients. Many people around the world can not afford these fees and i would like ripple to solve that problem as well, simply because they can... I really believe that David Schwartz wants a better world but 99% people want better world for themselves and this is why progress and changes take a lot of time and sometimes dont even make it. See Nikola Tesla and his inventions as an example... There is no FUD about Ripple but only about xrp... I would have bought stock rather than coin but it is what is... Have a nice weekend guys.
  4. Here is what i find as a threat to xrp: 1) I am afraid if ripple long term strategy was the right one in terms of developing it only as bridge currency since it was superior to btc. Without infrastructure and legal framework it does not work... As infrastructure develops, there might be better, faster, more decentralized coins than xrp 2) xrp Distribution, ripple is keeping too much of xrp and creators individually as well... Xrp needs more purposes than serving only as bridge currency 3) competition and Jed Mccaleb especially 4) settling remittances with stable coin makes much more sense 5) xrp has already served its purpose for ripple and founders, 20 bn usd in escrow is more than enough money for whatever you want to do in future... I dont believe you are motivated as you used to be before... 6) i dont expect another bull run for speculation. People have learned the lesson (i have not lol)... And we are far away from utility
