  1. Forte partner and legendary game developer preview minting features: https://macro.biz/ripples-gaming-juggernaut/
  2. Whoever sent it probably typed the wrong address in.
  3. I think they're bought and paid for, unfortunately. They'll only report on it when the stink gets so bad they can't ignore it.
  4. The SEC’s Ripple Lawsuit Reeks of Regulatory Capture: https://macro.biz/the-secs-ripple-lawsuit-reeks-of-regulatory-capture/
  5. Music NFTs are an explosive area of expansion for blockchain technologies and a promising use case for the XRP Ledger: https://macro.biz/music-nfts/
  6. One of the things I like about this project is that they're going to be maintaining a more curated list of NFTs. Unless I've horribly misread the whitepaper, they're not just going to let anyone upload a meme gif image and mint some nft "art."
  7. The volatility works both ways. With a small amount, you're more likely to hold it until you get a major price spike and your $50 winds up being worth $150.
  8. I've been using Coil for a while now (both the old blog platform and when I migrated to my own site). The on chain payments are as fast as a normal XRP payment as long as the amount is above a certain threshold. But the user base isn't huge.
  9. I think cause of the crazy unsustainable interest rates they advertise.
  10. I remember reading briefly about that Craig Dewitt music marketplace xSongs. I can't find any information about it officially shutting down but the webpage seems dead: https://www.xsongs.store/store-app/ https://decrypt.co/14343/ripple-xsongs-lets-artists-sell-music-for-xrp
  11. NFTs, hooks, and side chains could bring the lucrative gaming industry to the XRPL: https://macro.biz/xrp-expands-into-300-billion-gaming-industry/
  12. Brad Garlinghouse and other panelists chastise the United States for a decided lack of regulatory clarity: https://macro.biz/aspen-security-forum-record-breaking-year-for-ripple-despite-sec-lawsuit/
  13. Smart contracts as a direct to consumer interface between manufacturers and customers is a very interesting idea. One of the things I love about the internet is that it's revitalized these peculiar cottage industries with places like etsy, ebay, etc. One of the big problems we have here in Canada is that some oligopolistic storefronts refuse to carry popular items and instead choose to sell products from manufacturers they have a formal business relationship with. In a way, they have tremendous power in determining what it is we can buy. A system that lets consumers and manufactures interact directly and bypass these oligopolies absent a formal gatekeeper has a ton of potential.
  14. Oh man, I have tons of questions about this stuff. I'm very curious about the concept of "code as law" in the text from Primavera De Filippi and Aaron Wright. One of the scenarios I thought was interesting was a hacker breaking the code of a legal smart contract and extracting money from it. If the flaw is within the code and the code is ostensibly the law, has he actually done anything illegal? I'm also curious about how far away the first iterations of these state-backed legal contracts are.
