    Curious development. I always assumed Hodor was a team of people subcontracted to the Ripple marketing department.
    @CryptoEri You are as prolific as Hodor, are you going to retire or reveal your identity next?

    The man can say anything he wants , Ripple is a private company subject to very few rules .
    The question is , how much can we believe?

    Brad's quotes say it all if you ask me. 
    Garlinghouse cited a high level of investor interest in Ripple, saying the company did not need the money, though the funds will provide "balance sheet flexibility." A Ripple spokesperson said its plans for next year include hiring up to 150 new employees and adding overseas offices."
    "It's been a tremendous, tremendous year for Ripple," he says, adding that the company will be disclosing more numbers and major announcements in early 2020."
    It sounds to me as if these investors want to get more "skin in the game" before xrp really starts to take off.  Just the fact that this round is substantially greater than the combined total of all the previous rounds combined, speaks to a great deal of "in-the-know" investor confidence in the future success of xrp - I can't see how this all isn't extremely positive news for what's about to unfold.

    I think it's more than that.  I think it's about Ripple relinquishing measures of control to the current owners of the financial system.  I'd bet XRP the central banks own a substantial amount of Ripple.

    If the investment values Ripple at $10 Billion and Ripple has 50 Billion + XRP (Escrow and other Ripple wallets) that values XRP at 20c and rest of their payments software business at zero.
    Hmmmm
    that is not a good message price wise.

    With the additional series C funding it means Ripple has generated investments and revenue from XRP sales of over $1.5 Billion.
    Thats and awful lot of money.

    No matter what anyone says about decentralisation etc. Investing in XRP means trusting Ripple Labs.

    I don’t think that makes any sense. Its not like estimated gold ore reserves, it is a very clearly identified asset in XRP that can gradually be sold off or immediately sold off for XRP in non-escrowed wallets.

    They reveal claims about increases in volume but not volume, that shows they know what their volumes but simply do not want to share them because they are presumably so low.

    Damn Eric, if bullish peeps like you are feeling this way, I wonder how most others will. I thought these news were gonna bring sentiment up, though I do share your concerns as I had read various articles discussing this and I wondered why it wasn’t brought up more in the boards.

    @King34Maine well it can be looked at this way.  So far the only thing XRP has been used for is funding Ripple without Ripple actually selling any equity.  Where a normal company would have to sell stock for funding, Ripple has just been selling the XRP it was gifted, basically selling "stock" without giving any equity away.  A very ingenious way around securities law and the main reason all XRP detractors feel that XRP is a scam. It appears that now XRP has even lost this function. Basically Ripple saying we used XRP to capitalize our company now we can move on without XRP.  Our investors own no XRP so they won't care if we abandon it and either use a different token which the central banks or another entity issues or if we use no token at all. 
    @mrhat75 I'm all ears, bro.  If you know why this is bullish for XRP believe me I want to hear it.

    Money Gram holding XRP is very different than Venture Capital investors holding XRP.  Nothing is stopping a venture fund from holding XRP.  
     
    I kinda see it as a middle finger for XRP holders.

    I think a few things will come from this Series C funding round. Firstly, we all know that they will be expanding/scaling their ODL platform with many more partnerships and corridors. Second, in a Fortune article about Ripple's Series C, Brad/Ripple spokesperson stated: 
    I wouldn't be surprise if we see some major acquisitions/acqui-hire announcements and an influx of major banking partnerships here in the US, maybe China?? Thirdly, I think this Series C funding was, in many ways, a "Middle Finger" to the many Ripple/XRP doubters/haters. I like Brad's "shoulder shrug" response when asked why they did the raise. He was like, "we really didn't need it, but we did it because we could do it beeotches!!!"
