  1. $9 in 2020 is wishful thinking IMHO. I don't see BTC breaking $20,000 this year. I expect it to top at $15,000. 2021 is when I expect BTC to pass $20,000. We are still in the beginning of a multi-year bullrun. $3,200 was the BTC bottom. The frenzy that everyone remembers from 2017 came at the end of a bullrun. This one is just beginning. My prediction is that XRP remains under $1 in 2020.
  2. I am sold on David, but not Brad. Ripple needs someone like Ray Kroc. Brad is too damn nice. Ripple needs a psychopath at the helm. It's going to take a ruthless psychopath to convince banks to use XRP.
  3. Ripple struggles to attract top talent, so associating the company with these famous entities puts them in a favorable light. It's a strategic purchase.
  4. I also feel this way. By the time the regulations are finally in place, Ripple's technology and head start might be irrelevant. Ripple's push for change helps future solutions from other entities, solutions which might eclipse the usefulness of what Ripple currently offers.
  5. Free fall might be good because it would spur Ripple to do more self-examination. Schwartz did express surprise months ago that the price is where it's at.
  6. While Coil may fail as a business, the company could still help Ripple in another way. Coil's usage of XRP might help Ripple in regards to its stance of XRP not being a security. Maybe that is one of its purposes to begin with? I wouldn't be surprised if such ideas have come up in "hush, hush" board meetings at Ripple HQ. ;-)
  7. They are not pursuing anything with these large investments. Coil is doing all the work in this case.
  8. My thoughts too. He's laying all of his credibility on the line with this one. We will have to see....
  9. David Schwartz threw cold water on the possibility of SWIFT acquiring Ripple. So I don't know whether to believe the rumor.
  10. CryptHawk claiming SWIFT + Ripple connection..... Alluding to Ripple buyout. Twitter going nuts.
  11. Most likely they are doing trials, but there are NDAs in place. Or they are working with Ripple on new products (not the core Ripple products). Who knows? David always brings up the same companies though, so it does look suspicious to me too.
  12. I think $2-3 is highly unlikely this year. I could be wrong, but I think an optimistic EOY price is $1. My reasoning is that more money will flow to BTC than in past cycles. So ETH and XRP will not jump as they did previously. It will be a slow rise. 2020 is the year that I believe XRP will reach ATH. And I think it will happen at the end of 2020. That will be a true test for XRP hodlers. Do you sell when it reaches ATH? I am sure many will do exactly that.
  13. XRP went parabolic and based on the chart and market conditions in Jan 2018, the right thing to do was to sell. People who knew the cryptomarket (like Charlie Lee) were warning new investors. Until there is substantial utility demand, XRP is going to follow the same cycle as before, although this time perhaps more money will flow into BTC. ALT season may be less intense. The big question for XRP is when will it see substantial utility demand. My bet is 2021. This year is not looking good. And I anticipate that 2020 will see the passing of more regulation, which will benefit 2021.
  14. I think that's wise. 2017 created many bag holders. And Ripple has clearly run into unforeseen roadblocks insofar as bank adoption of digital assets (remember that Brad promised 12 banks by this year). Banks are slow to change, even when they can save money. Without banks on board, you are left with financial institutions (like MoneyGram) and that's going to take years before you see strong affects on the price. There's simply too much supply of XRP. Realistically, BTC is what is driving the price for the foreseeable future. When BTC peaks, it would be smart to sell -- unless you want to see another crash in price. We are at the beginning of another bull market. So we have a ways to go....
  15. The 0.30-0.40 range feels never ending. If it wasn't for BTC, XRP might be below 0.20c. Too little utility, too much supply.
  16. For BTC, the 10k support level is being tested. Yesterday it briefly dipped below before rising again. Lots of buy orders at 10K. Once those orders are finished, BTC is at risk of falling further. 8k is a real possibility. But it wouldn't happen quickly. 9k will be likely be a slow burn, which would reduce XRP in the 0.20 - 0.30 range. So if 8k is reached, then I think XRP would hit 0.20c or below. I have seen TA where it could hit 0.16c.
  17. If BTC reaches 8K, then XRP will likely dip below 0.20. We might see 0.17 again.
  18. Can someone give me legitimate hope in these dark times? I am convinced that SBI will be delayed again. I don't like listening to the YouTubers (Cobb, Eri, etc). Are we all just waiting for MoneyGram to start at this point? Bitcoin will have to reach ATH, until we see XRP at $1. And we probably won't see BTC ATH for months. Is there anything else that I am missing? Will PolySign finally be revealed soon? Does anyone know?
  19. Given how careful the Japanese government is acting with cryptos, the likelihood of another postponment is high. Furthermore, if there is a launch, the price of XRP isn't going to skyrocket. SBI is an important partner but BTC is the only strong influencer on the XRP price at the moment. Nothing else matters until there is significant XRP utility.
  20. I have to agree with this. People are putting too many eggs in one basket with SBI.
  21. EOY 2019: 0.80 EOY 2020: 1.20 Overall, I think XRP will be remembered as a failure because of slow integration by banks. Banks will start to become less relevant in the next 10 to 20 years, and their decline will be attributed to their slow rate of digital asset adoption. By the time, banks realize that they shouldn't have been dragging their feet, it will be too late. In the ensuing panic, they will try to enact laws against cryptocurrency, which will fail. By 2030, Eri from Tokyo will switch to covering Sumo and Japanese food full-time on her YouTube channel. Climate change will shrink the remittance market as millions of people perish in the third world from water scarcity and unbearable heat waves. Cryptocurrency will have evolved into something we haven't imagined yet, and David Schwartz will look like a genius for selling early to reduce risk.
