This is my personal vanity thread. I noticed that the forum doesn’t seem to have any “presence” feature I can use to indicate when I’m active or sleeping.
I’m normally pretty private about where I am and what I’m doing at any moment. I don’t tweet, instagram or otherwise livestream my life, because really who cares to know.
But, in launching the club and leaving for a whole day with so many great questions unanswered made me feel really guilty. I’d hate for any of you to think I’m ignoring your particular question or comment.
So I decided to invent this thread as my own personal “presence” feature. That way you’ll know what I’m doing instead (before) I answer your long waiting question.
If you want to follow along and make sure you don't miss anything I post. You can see my forum activity here. @Flintstone reminds me that there is a follow button on my profile. Press that and you'll get notifications when I post.

I really don't know. I remember at the beginning Jed promised to give the vast majority away. But I don't know how it actually ended up. It turns out giving away free cryptocurrency in a way that is perceived as fair, is really really hard. In my option that is why Ripple inadvertantly still has so much XRP. It turns out that is a fortunate thing for both Ripple and XRP.
The real obstacle Stellar or any new startup trying to do the same thing, is that to be the de facto bridge currency for the world, you need to divert payments that currently happen fiat/fiat, into payments that happen fiat/crypto + crypt/fiat. And banks have a statutory monopoly on fiat in most or all countries. Meaning they are already "favored specialists". So you need to work with banks and gain their trust. They need to assure that your proposal is at minimum "win/win" but also that it DOESN'T erode banking's structural advantage.
Most cryptocurrencies don't have that kind of credibility. Most talk in the crypto space has been about "overthrowing the banking industry". You go try to sell that idea to bankers. I dare you! :-)
