  1. In toast wallet, your recovery phrase is just a second passphrase, you need to actually create a backup of the addresses connected to your toast wallet. Sorry.
  2. There is a Tim Horton's right around the corner from where I live currently. I would be down for a coffee and a chat, just send me a PM and we can set it up.
  3. I have always lived in Hamilton my entire adult life.
  4. Niche markets are tricky to enter and tend to have a high barrier to entry. That is why most gateways tend to fail. A new solution may garner new interest, only time can tell, I am still very much a silver bug and believe in its value stored in its physical form. Digitizing such assets has been the reason why I got into Ripple in the first place, "email" for precious metals. Gateways and exchanges are still a fairly new technology and the XRPL remains the best, in my opinion. decentralized exchange that is available. Even if we were to not enforce a TransferRate on our IOUs, the volume of deposits and withdrawals will be the key to the success or failed of a Gateway. I have a solid terms of service which can be transferred to any new trade-name that we choose to operate under. Most gateways were for advanced users and ignored newbies to the ecosystem. It would be nice to ensure that there is a corridor for CAD. Perhaps even getting on board with ODL could be a possibility if we succeed in launching a sustainable product.
  5. I am sick so I am just going to write that I am pro getting projects done which will reflect well on end users of the RCL.
  6. I am sure that the MSB license is transferable but if not then we will need to register a new one with FINTRAC. I have no problems with you holding the license. I would prefer to be director of operations and I can assist with some front end development if needed. I have done some back-end work before but I can leave that to you and your mobile app dev. As for the security audit, I second you in your coughing fit, I'd hire Sukrim to ensure everything is kosher. I operated XAGATE with multiple issuers so I have no qualms with being inclusive (if your market maker hasn't backed out). I would want to assist with the list of developer and user resources, I have written some stuff besides the QuickGatewayKit that helps out Gateways, such as this package that displays balances and obligations of a gateway. I am sure that we will be able to strike up some sort of deal that can be equally beneficial to all parties involved. Please do write me a PM with your email and we can perhaps get into a google hangout or do a skype call sometime to discuss this further.
  7. I am very interested in learning more about what you have built and I would be pleased to either help you form your own gateway or to go into a partnership by selling you a minority amount of shares of 8569541 CANADA INC. Please do contact me via PM or email my gmail account and we can get down to talking business The XRPL allows you to "email" silver and gold to other people across borders which is why I got started in Ripple in the first place. Silver and Gold backed tokens will be the future in my honest opinion as they are stable investments which have historical value. The reason why I used the NXT blockchain was because there was no pay dividend function available on the Ripple Consensus Ledger hence the profit sharing asset program was not issued as Ripple IOUs. Since the creation of my first gateway, community developers have created functions to payout dividends to people on the RCL and issuing Ripple IOUs which yield dividends are now feasible. Ripple has been moving away from the small business Ripple Gateway scheme since around 2015/2016 when Ripple Labs reformed into Ripple Inc. A dedicated server with 16-32GB of RAM, 120GB SSD, and quad core processor is what is needed to operate a rippled validator. Legal hurdles would include selling company shares to interested parties (around 700-800$CAD to get those documents created) and the other hurdle is to update with FINTRAC my Money Services Business profile with them as it still states that xagate.com is the operating website address at which my MSB can be found at. In addition to this, MSBs must now declare if they are operating with virtual currencies and must update with information with FINTRAC by Summer 2020. I am very glad to see a positive response from the community. Please do continue to discuss with me your suggestions about this upcoming project and provide your feedback for this project for 2020!
  8. Ever since I rejoined the forums, I sometimes get private messages in regards to forming a new CAD gateway. In this thread, I am asking the community to provide some suggestions and feedback to determine if a new gateway is feasible. I was asked if I would perhaps perform a crowd funding round from the XRPchat community to bootstrap a new Gateway, which I will touch on later. The first thing that I would need to do is set up a new issuer, requiring about 500 XRP to cover OwnerCount objects in the ledger from trust-lines and to activate new ripple accounts who are coming to the Gateway in addition to providing some small amount of XRP to the market making account to cover the major order-books so that payments can find paths. Second, I already have a domain name registered until 2023 and I have the ability to host a website via shared hosting on the monthly basis but this means I will not be able to host an instance of rippled as I will not have enough resources to run it on the package I have available. Third, I would require capital to purchase silver for remittance over the RCL, as all of my gateways in the past have been focused on cryptos, fiat, and precious metals with precious metals being the focal asset class offering for all of my Ripple Gateways to date. This would be about another 600$CAD (or more) so that I could purchase a tube of silver rounds for remittance. As for crowd funding to jump-start a new Gateway, if the official forums were still up, I could point all of you to the postings in which I mention the crowd funding rounds that I already completed in the past via the NXT blockchain. The major problem with a crowd funding round is how do I provide value to the backers of the crowd fund? At first the NXT asset was providing 45% of the profits derived from the gateway calculated in NXT then shared to the XAGATE asset holders on that blockchain using their pay dividends function but I was still the majority share holder of the assets so I was receiving 51% of the dividends paid as a kickback for not selling my company's equity so easily (I forget the price per asset but it was set pretty low). With all of this being said and done, I invite you to take a look at https://streetsofsilver.website to view the fee schedule this Ripple Gateway will launch with. Please note that USD withdrawals will be done via wire transfer and that is why the withdrawal fee is set so high; If I am able to find a way to reduce this overhead I will be able to reduce the fee drastically when/if this Gateway launches. That is all for now folks, please, provide me with your suggestions and feedback as to how I may be able to provide some value to the interested parties who may want to crowd-fund this project! EDIT: Someone pointed out via PM that the deposit fee for Ethereum on the site was listed as 0.1 ETH per deposit which is a preposterous amount, the actual deposit fee is 0.01 ETH, that was a typo.
  9. The information is for those who have junk/constitutional silver who would like to see how their investment is able to carry over to XRP if they decided to sell their silver coins. These aren't random links, I created these spreadsheets myself for my own usage and shared them via Twitter last year but that account is still locked. I value silver not based on dollars but based on the historical value of silver. Even today 2/3rd of the world live on less than 2$USD a day which is about equal to a silver dime. A roman soldier was paid a denarius per day which was equal to a tenth of a ounce of silver. A farmer in those times would work 12 hours a day to earn a denarius. An ounce of silver therefore is worth ten days of unskilled labour. I don't value things relative to fiat currency as it is not a store of value over long periods of time. The real silver investors out there know that the worldwide, generational fiat debt based money ponzi scheme is coming to an end soon. When the price of silver goes down you just get the opportunity to buy more silver. When silver was priced at around 42$CAD I bought less because I knew it was going to be smacked back down. You need to dollar cost average your positions in precious metals. People in the crypto community who have done their due diligence with researching the cryptocurrency ecosystem know that these systems are just test tube babies for when governments who will create their own blockchains one day soon to trap, trace, track, and tax all of humanity. Ripple is poised to solve the liquidity problem when the shit hits the fan and the fiat currency systems of the world collapse and that is the only reason why I am invested into the XRP bridge currency. Last, was it really necessary to create three posts one after the other? But we should put this thread back on topic now. Please discuss whatever you find interesting about the value of silver relative to XRP using these spreadsheets.
  10. The real value of an ounce of silver is actually 1044$USD now. I like that the precious metals markets are manipulated; I get to stack more then realize profits later down the line.
  11. I've been since the Ripple classic client was being used before being shutdown and began posting on the official ripple forum in 2014 when I gained an interest in operating a gateway then created some resources for the community with http://ripplegateway.design [thread]. I did manage to take a small profit from the last bullrun. This wound has been over a year healing now but it still looks good and is healing up nicely, its just a matter of time and reducing my activity as the wound has healed completely on the side of my foot but the ulcer/hole is still on the bottom of my foot now.
  12. A few years ago I created a repository for creating Ripple Gateways and Cryptocurrency Exchanges using the Ripple Consensus Ledger. The code-base is accessible via http://ripplegateway.design or https://github.com/whotooktwarden/QuickGatewayKit. This package in conjunction with another, rippled-sign-submit, allows the operator of a QGK instance to utilize the CoinPayments.net merchant solution in conjunction with Instant Payment Notifications (IPN) to accept cryptocurrency deposits and automatically issue IOUs onto those assets over the RCL. Interested Individuals and entities who are looking to form their own Ripple Gateway/Cryptocurrency Exchange may contact me privately to discuss writing a Software Development Agreement for the creation of your own mock gateway, excluding Terms of Service section unless residing within Canada.
  13. I have made a couple of spreadsheets which value silver relative to XRP using American Coinage & Canadian Coinage. These spreadsheets will allow you to input the price of XRP and Silver (in grams) then calculates 1. how much XRP 1g of silver purchases 2. how much XRP a troy ounce of silver purchases 3. how many transactions you can submit by using 1g of silver to purchase XRP 4. how many transactions you can submit by using 1ozt of silver to purchase XRP 5. breaks down how many OwnerCount objects your Ripple account can hold for 1, 5, 10, 20, 25, 50, 75, and 100 coins 6. breaks down how many transactions each coin type would provide should you sell it for XRP. If you would like to use my spreadsheets as a template for your country's own silver coinage, then the resource that I used to get silver priced in grams is found here, there are 110 countries with price data for precious metals on this site.

    An Update

    Hello everyone, it has been quite a while since I have posted anything in regards to my participation within the RCL community. In August 2018, I signed an agreement with my then landlord to move out of my bachelor apartment by a certain date and he would pay me a bonus and return my last month's rent to me. As a part of this agreement I was to remove all of my furniture and belongings from the apartment by an agreed upon date. In doing so I found myself being too active in terms on walking, which with my physical disability caused me to become wounded. When I was very young and wore AFO leg braces, my Mother dragged me up and down hills in Toronto once which led to a hole being bore into the left side of my left foot and another wound which builds up callous on the bottom of my foot. This skin area on my left foot is very weak skin and due to the amount of activity from moving out of my apartment, I bore a hole in the side of my foot and I contracted venous stasis which caused multiple leg ulcers. I moved into a room in a boarding home soon after this and began treatment with homecare nurses and it has been over a year now with this wound healing. Additionally, I was illegally evicted from my new place of residence just a few days before Christmas 2018. I ended up going to the hospital to explain my situation to a doctor and they admitted me to the psychiatric ward of the hospital because they found out that I have had a prior hospitalization there. I then spent 107 days in hospital until the social worker found a new living arrangement for me in a seniors' residence which also acts as a lodging home. I have not been remitting any assets over the RCL as of over a year and a half now and I do not have any current plans to form another Ripple Gateway project due to my lack of income that I have available to me from my Ontario Disability Support Program benefit. In the past when I was living independently I was receiving a little more than 1300$CAD a month but now that I am in a loding home more than 800$ of my benefit goes towards my room &board then I receive a 'personal needs allowance' of 150$CAD in addition to a special diet benefit from ODSP totaling 169$CAD monthly. With having to pay my phone and internet bill as well as buying the necessities of living in a group home, I have a very, very limited amount of funds to do any sort of investing into new projects. As of now, I am focusing on trying to reduce my activity as much as possible so that my foot wound will heal up finally. I had made the decision earlier this year to begin performing research into game theory and MMO economics, specifically the gamification of education & gamification of income. I believe that games coupled with distributed ledger technologies such as Ripple have the ability to impact young peoples lives by teaching them subjects such as mathematics and cryptography while earning cryptocurrency/IOUs while completing various educational tasks. I have also been thinking more about this thread that I posted in the past which still interests me to this day because I just have a feeling that the RCL can one day be used as a backbone for a blockchain based game. I have also been reading up on the Ethereum blockchain and have a few ideas on how to use the solidity programming language to create a smart contract which would power a web based video game. tldr; I'm wounded and healing slowly, I have been put into a crappy living situation after another hospitalization, I don't have funds to fund any projects such as a Ripple Gateway, I still have plenty of motivation to research and refine my ideas which I have discussed in the past on this forum and the official Ripple forums, last I am also interested in using the Ethereum blockchain/solidity programming language to create a smart contract which would power a web based video game.
