  1. Looks like xumm supports SOLO. Anyone following this project? Still looking for more details about exactly how this system is expected to work. Which brokerages have partnered with sologenic?
  2. The immune system both prevents you from getting sick and helps you get better once you are sick. For example, it can prevent infection by a novel microbe and it can clear a novel microbe once you have bee infected. The immune system can also help to repair organs that have been damaged by microbes after the pathogen is cleared. It can also help to clear cancer cells and non-living foreign particle like plastic.
  3. Depends on which currency is being printed. The US dollar is the global unit of account. For the time being, there will be continued demand for the dollar to act as a counter against runaway inflation. Now, if you're printing trillions of Zimbabwean dollars, that's a whole other story.
  4. it's not a strain of influenza, it's a strain of coronaviridae Data from the Diamond Princess indicate that is causes symptoms in 50% of infected individuals The flu vaccine is not perfect and does not confer 100% protection The mortality rate will increase if hospital capacity is overwhelmed, that is part of what happened in Italy. 1/3 of hospitalized individuals need to be placed on a ventilator and 50% of those who are on a ventilator survive.
  5. Hard to compare to the flu when this pandemic is ongoing. If mortality rates hold (even if they are 1/3 of what is currently estimated) and this virus continues to spread unabated (Ro = 2.5) it will kill many more than the flu. We hope we will have a vaccine but there is no guarantee, there is still no vaccine for HIV. And the flu vaccine has to be updated yearly. (luckily this is a long RNA virus and doesn't mutate very quickly). It's hard for people to think in exponential numbers which is why most leaders wait far too long to act. The prevalence of the problem is much larger than what we have measured to date (because of the incubation period and a lack of testing). The mortality rate will increase if there are insufficient hospital beds, healthcare workers, and ventilators to handle a surge in the number of ill patients. This is why you want to spread out the number of infected cases rather than have everyone get infected at the same time.

  6. But whether XRP is a security has a bearing on the IPO. XRP is Ripple's most valuable asset and the largest source of realized (I belive) and unrealized revenue to date. Of course the legal status of XRP has bearing on whether and how equity in the largest owner of XRP is made available to the public.
  7. yeah, it looks so obviously fraudulent. I didn't even visit the domain. Sad that some people put so much effort into preying on others...
  8. Hey, what's this all about? This account (https://xrpscan.com/account/rJWbox8K4kndimMbqLGaxXf5FXzLk1RrNs) is sending out many small transactions with a memo that stats: "NETWORK ANNOUNCEMENT: Ripple unlocks 50% stake in XRP, indicates massive airdrop www.*******.com"
  9. Nigerian P2P bitcoin trading platform Paxful surpasses Coinbase. The majority of trading is in USD-denominated gift cards for bitcoin which are then sold for Nigerian Naira. The author speculates that the trading is mostly driven by remittance payments. Very interesting analysis: https://medium.com/dlabvc/paxful-is-the-most-important-bitcoin-company-you-arent-paying-attention-to-4e699db0c5ca
  10. Where did you read this? Do you have a link?
  11. Their website shows the Ripple, not XRP, logo. Will be interesting to continue to follow them, they appear to be growing.
  12. They emailed me and kindly requested that I send the excess to billing@cred.io via Uphold. The person who emailed was "Heidi from Cred + Uphold". These are the supposed use cases for LBA (https://www.mycred.io/token) but as far as know most of them aren't active. I'm not sure how this doesn't qualify as a security... I really don't know what the drivers of price are other than staking LBA for better loan/interest rates and it's not clear to me what their growth plan is. To me the whole Cred ecosystem is just very opaque and there's enough risk in crypto as it is. They'd do well to just an AMA or put out a clear graphic on how their system works. What ever happened to the Universal Protocol? Remember UPUSD? Seems like nothing is happening from what I can tell, Uphold only has 10K in reserves https://uphold.com/en/transparency
  13. They paid my interest interest in full and twice my principal. They accidentally sent me double my deposit. That's effectively a 210% interest rate for 6 months. I've DM'ed them and contacted support to return the excess but... no response. Bang up job they're doing over there.
