  1. Many times on this forum I have strenuously defended Ripple, believing that they are not manipulating the price of XRP because David Schwartz said so and I think he's not a liar. However, this data does seem to present evidence that Ripple and/or its programmatic sales agents are indeed manipulating the price. My belief is shaken. Whilst, as an OG holder, I am somewhat comforted by the putative existence of a 'Garlinghouse put' (cf the Bernanke put), it denies new investors speculators the chance to get in at low prices. And of course, keeping the price down during crypto bull runs ... well, you can guess what I think about that. All too fishy.
  2. What if the relevant legislation is not passed by the Diet by late July? Preparing myself for yet another SBIVC delay.
  3. And I was hoping this might be a salt-free zone.
  4. Well, Kitao-san was recently snapped sitting with Shamtoshi. But SBI doesn't list BSV does it?
  5. 1. At present you can't retrieve the 20XRP. I think @nikb recently said that in future there may be modifications made to the XRPL to allow account deletion. 2. Send XRP to an exchange, then to the other person. No one will be able to trace where it came from (except employees of the exchange, presumably).
  6. TW UK account to Hong Kong bank in 8 seconds - pretty impressive. Fee about 0.8%.
  7. It's still here, look for the Zerpbox tab. You have to be logged in to see it. Oh, and you may need a minimum number of posts in the forum - not sure how many. It's a sad chatbox now, though. Full of sarcasm and negativity about Ripple and XRP, plus a couple of guys constantly discussing altcoin pumps. Barely worth reading.
  8. Great that you're back. Not many of us OGs left. Be sure to check out Bob's Book Club - an ex Ripple employee dropping a huge amount of useful info.
  9. Are you the original Dizer, from way back on XRPtalk, who left this forum last year? If so, a hearty welcome back!
  10. Yes he did. And Bob Way knows why, but he said he can't tell us because it would be a breach of confidence, which is fair enough. But it indicates to me that there must be a pretty serious reason why Jed stopped.
  11. I'll just repeat that for emphasis: "But if and when Cobalt is implemented, it won’t be user-facing and its deployment won’t affect users of the XRP Ledger."
  12. The latter. Specifically the one you show above.
  13. Now the thread title goes to first unread, except in Clubs where it still goes to the first post in the thread.
  14. I'm waiting for the wallet OS from Wietse Wind (he of XRP Tipbot). No idea on the timeline, but with his name on it, it's gonna be good.
  15. Interesting video, but this guy is a "financial crime apprentice", not someone who is able to make decisions on Ripple/XRP deployment at Santander. Seems like he was told to go and make the video as a learning exercise for him, not to inform his superiors of what direction they should take with blockchain.
  16. Nothing, except the warm, buzzy feeling that comes with helping push forward the bleeding edge of payment tech. Matt Hamilton said in a recent interview that it costs him only EUR15 per month, hosted on a server farm in Finland.
  17. A later comment says that the above is an old article from 2018. FUD?
  18. "We are not using bitcoin or any other cryptocurrency..." The interviewer bowled him an easy question by which he could have endorsed XRP. He did not.
