  1. https://markets.businessinsider.com/currencies/news/xrp-delisted-ripple-sec-complaint-coinbase-crypto-okcoin-trading-platform-2020-12-1029926814 Coinbase and Okcoin, according to business insider. Crypto.com is delisting for US customers. There are probably more, but I'm not going to go through every single exchange, press release, and blog to make a list.
  2. If I had to guess, he found something more lucrative than the income he was generating from blogging/Coil and the effort he was putting into maintain that blog was no longer worth it.
  3. With coinbase, no. Other exchanges it depends. Some have de-listed for only US customers and others have delisted for everyone.
  4. They find themselves in a weird situation now because they need regular people to value and use XRP and if the SEC allegations prove to be correct there is a lot of burned good will in the community. While we might not have a right to demand things, I don’t think Ripple can afford to adopt that attitude, because if supporters check out of the platform entirely because they no longer trust Ripple the use case could be called into question. That being said, people are generally cherry-picking quotes to push the “ripple was dumping XRP on us” narrative as an insinuation that it supressed th
  5. I replied to this just now, probably going to get burried in the twitter feed: I've only ever seen data on BTC's end of the mining pool problem. Was never able to find anything indicating ETH had it anywhere near as bad, so it's always been curious to me why Ripple has been trying to lump Ethereum into the Chinese controlled chain bandwagon.

  9. The only model that makes sense to me for the news now, at least if you want a semblance of trustworthiness, is to trust individual reporters rather than some parent organization. People like Greenwald, Taibbi, and to a lesser extent some of the popular YouTube news commentators, mostly because I haven't yet been egregiously lied to by these individuals. If someone has a long history of telling the truth, even when it doesn't fall in line with their political leanings, that's an individual whose opinions carries weight with me.
  10. That’s true, the news is in a bad place lately especially considering things like the resignation of Greenwald from the Intercept due to censorship issues. The main thing that gave me pause about the Breitbart article was that almost no one else featured these comments except for a few crypto publications, many of which are worse than tabloids to me. But I totally forgot about the DLT comments earlier. If anyone's curious about those comments: https://www.coindesk.com/trump-blockchain-critical-technologies https://www.coindesk.com/trump-white-house-doubles-us-commitment-blockchain
  11. Haven't seen this posted here yet: https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2020/10/24/trump-administration-concerned-sec-dragging-its-feet-on-digital-currency-as-china-races-ahead/#disqus_thread Not the best source, and no other publications reporting this. Should be an interesting conversation piece though.
  12. A topic I've very interested of late is different models of governance for decentralized blockchain projects. One of the things I spotted in the whitepaper, and included in an unrelated blog post, was that the Flare Foundation is going to be running a voting delegate: "Flare will follow a liquid democracy model whereby token holders are free to vote themselves or to delegate some or all of their tokens (votes) to another entity which votes on their behalf, as defined in 3.8. A voting entity that amasses delegated votes can be formed by any one or collection of people. One of those entiti

  14. The choice between the Xbox Series X and the Xbox Series S is a difficult one, particularly for multiplayer gamers. Find out 𝐰𝐡𝐢𝐜𝐡 𝐨𝐧𝐞 𝐭𝐨 𝐛𝐮𝐲 in my latest Coil post: https://coil.com/p/macropolo/Xbox-Series-X-vs-Xbox-Series-S-4k-gaming-vs-high-FPS/AnC65kVum
  15. I completely agree. And it's probably even scarier to them as some might not understand what's going on because of cognitive impairment or dementia.
