  1. Ok. It is no doubt good for XRP. But why is it chosen? What is the exact advantage against other solutions?
  2. Would be great if somebody could explain what it means the whole thing and how it works? Eri said (I am not native speaker so I might misunderstand something) : "Sumitumo is going to make future transactions with FxCoin to hedge price movement by selling the XRP back to FxCoin on a specific date what that does is it allows Sumitumo to lock in a future price which is so important and revolutionary for trade finance. This is really genious" Why is it so revolutionary? Is it only a "plain" future trade, isn't it?
  3. DLT and Blockchain are used as synonyms, but in fact Blockchain is a subset of DLT. So each Blockchain is DLT, but not each DLT Blockchain. It is a good choice for using DLT term in that paper. David Schwartz defined Blockchain here (actually it is a pretty cool definition ) https://www.distributedagreement.com/2018/09/24/what-is-a-blockchain/#more-707
  4. Hi @Quadear, Your own time and the node time are not synchronized. Your server and XRPL node time must be different. If you check only the ledger_time you will see there is no mixing in timestamps. jlr@jlr:~$ date -d@1599723590 Thu 10 Sep 09:39:50 CEST 2020 jlr@jlr:~$ date -d@1599723591 Thu 10 Sep 09:39:51 CEST 2020 jlr@jlr:~$ date -d@1599723592 Thu 10 Sep 09:39:52 CEST 2020 jlr@jlr:~$ date -d@1599723600 Thu 10 Sep 09:40:00 CEST 2020 jlr@jlr:~$ date -d@1599723601 Thu 10 Sep 09:40:01 CEST 2020 jlr@jlr:~$ date -d@1599723610 Thu 10 Sep 09:40:10 CEST 2020 j
  5. I have made rough estimation how big news RippleNet integration into SWISSRoute. Of course more accurate estimation can be made (ex. I wasn't working numbers from same date), but just I wanted to get some impression what it means in numbers. https://issuu.com/ibismarketing/docs/swissroute_total_messaging_brochure (2014 - 33 million messages/ MONTH - [SWISSRoute]) ~= 1 million messages / DAY https://www.swift.com/about-us/swift-fin-traffic-figures (2020 Jun - 37.9 million FIN messages/ DAY - [SWIFT]) [I am not sure if it's enough to calculate with only FIN messages] S
  6. Currently Ripple is behind the planned distribution curve with 10b XRP https://ripple.com/insights/ripple-to-place-55-billion-xrp-in-escrow-to-ensure-certainty-into-total-xrp-supply/
  7. fyi : Lawsuit against Tether and Bitfinex for manipulating cryptomarket. No surprise, but at least there is some progress. You can read the details about it here: https://www.courtlistener.com/docket/16298999/leibowitz-v-ifinex-inc/ ...and there are many tweets posted regarding this topic
  8. Unfortunately I didn't find the reference about Ripple selling from JoelKatz, but he said once Ripple has three different ways to sell XRP. 1) Sell OTC on normal market price. 2) Sell OTC below the market price with restriction (restriction can be how to use it/when to sell it, etc.) 2) Sell on exchanges with normal market price as well. I hope this helps
  9. ethnews.com is said to be "Dangerous Web Page Blocked". Is there any other source of this news? ok. i know ... google is my friend... Here it is : https://cointelegraph.com/news/brazil-central-bank-adopts-imf-guidelines-for-crypto-classification
  10. Thanks @Sukrim and @karstnDE, You gave me a good starter. I am going to digest it if something is not clear then I'll come back to you.
  11. Ok, but why? While in the case of Bitcoin blockchain it is easy to validate blockchain intergrity. Just iterate on blocks and calculate hash on that and check if that hash is equal to prev.hash of the next block. But if you changed anything in the chain it would be extremely difficult to create new hashes from the modified block till the end. Why cannot I counterfeit any closed XRPL since you mentioned it is easy to create reference to the prior closed ledger? So I would modify a ledger and recalculate secure reference for the closed ledgers till the end. How can I figure out if whethe
  12. @karlos, Could you please move this topic to the Technical Discussion? I have no permission to do that.
  13. Hi, Definition of the Blockchain according to the JoelKatz blog (https://www.distributedagreement.com/2018/09/24/what-is-a-blockchain/) """ A blockchain is a series of states of a distributed ledger where each state, except the first, contains a secure reference to the prior state and sufficient information to demonstrate that the transition from that prior state is valid according to the system’s rules.""" It is clear for me how it achieves 'secure reference' in the case of Bitcoin block since if we changed any piece of byte in the block it would be revealed quickly with hash
  14. Hi, I have just found this tweet that you might find it interesting as well. There is an article on IBM domain which mentioned Ripple and XRP many times (among other crypto things)
