  1. The dollar is in a unique position because it's the global reserve currency. Entities outside of the USA need dollars to pay for stuff and to service dollar-denominated debt, which bids up the price of dollars against other currencies. There are really two dollar markets, the one internal to the USA and the eurodollar one outside. I found this video quite enlightening (no mention of XRP, though):
  2. Asheesh Birla, Ripple employee, weighs in: https://twitter.com/ashgoblue/status/1232480844847017985
  3. I hate to say this, but this subsidy paints a picture of ODL not being able to pay its own way (save money for the company that uses it), YET.
  4. http://ir.moneygram.com/news-releases/news-release-details/moneygram-international-reports-fourth-quarter-and-full-year-4 I have no idea what a "contra expense" is.
  5. Incorrect. The selling schedule you quote is from 2014. That agreement was superceded (as has been stated on this forum countless times) by the 2016 agreement outlined by Monica Long on the official Ripple forum. It currently restricts Jed to selling 1.75% of daily XRP volume, IIRC. Ripple are in full control of Jed's XRP and they parcel it out to him to sell based upon the said volume.
  6. Thanks, this looks great for cashing out. For crypto purchases, however, it seems that GBP deposits to Uphold are not possible via Faster Payments; they only take debit/credit cards and charge 3.99% commission on the deposit. Just FYI.
  7. IIRC RippleTrade (RT) was a client used for interacting with the RCL (now XRPL) where you could trade XRP for fiat IOUs bought from gateways. RT was neither an exchange nor gateway, therefore you could not have bought "Ripples" from RT.
  8. Most likely a Ripple acquisition. No accurate value can be attached to Ripple whilst the XRP Security issue is formally undecided and that would make any purchase of Ripple incredibly risky.
  9. I strongly doubt that @Sporticus is genuinely a qualified lawyer - his output seems insufficiently cautious and measured, rather lacking in precision and nuance. Compare his output with that of Jake Chervinsky, for example:
  10. Ohhhh, I see it now. I can be very dumb sometimes.
  11. Thanks, but my list of ignored users is not available from my own profile (AFAICS). I got to it by going to another member's avatar > Ignore user, then delete their name from the box and add the offending member. No, it's not you
  12. There is a certain member who delights in trolling in the zerpbox but has never posted in the forum. Unfortunately there is no way to place him/her on ignore because their profile contains no content to hover the cursor over their avatar and bring up the option to ignore.
