  1. So this is maybe the explanation why we haven't seen new corridors open up this year? I have been wondering why it is so slow. You keep hearing that it's du to regulation issues. But what hinders a USD-THB, USD-KRW or USD-BRL corridor? I haven't heard about any legislation preventing this. And Ripple as always don't say a word ...
  2. Until now Alex Holmes has been talking ODL into the ground (seen from an XRP investor perspective), except on the stage with Brad, but even then. Tons of reservations about early stages, weaving and not wanting to say anything that he can be accounted for, and "we have already very efficient procedures", "this is an experiment" and so on. I don't expect him being any different today. So that's not too encouraging, but if Ripple hadn't had MoneyGram thinks would look much worse.
  3. What is the technicalities in the USD/MXN corridor if payments primarily are going one way? Who buys all these XRP for peso? Is there some mechanism that converts XRP back to peso?
  4. More info: https://all-stocks.net/ocbc-becomes-first-singaporean-bank-to-join-jpmorgans-iin-blockchain-network/ 65 banks already up-and-running I wonder what the same number is on RippleNet
  5. I wonder why it is that JP Morgan in a much shorter timeframe can attract the double amount of "customers" to their solution. Answers to this question are important in assessing wether it makes life more difficult for Ripple. Is IIN free? They might have 300+ customers but how much is it used? Is it more or less difficult to integrate with? Is functionality the same? Is JP Morgan viewed as a more risk free partner (can hardly believe that)? How does JP Morgan sell IIN compared to SWIFT? Etc.
  6. JPMorgan now has 300+ banks on their blockchain which sounds a lot like xCurrent: https://www.coindesk.com/first-singapore-bank-joins-jpmorgans-blockchain-payments-initiative I know it's not a solution like xRapid but isn't this a problem for Ripple? It seems they can land the big banks (like DB) that apparently prefers the JPMorgan solution?

  8. I find that this behavior is directly dishonest and undermines his credibilty. Now they have spend so much marketing effort on pointing out that CMC volumes can't be used and then he just uses it as a convenient (but dishonest) argument for saying that Ripple sales doesn't affect price. I'm disappointed and it makes me feel that you can't trust them anymore.
