    xerxesramesepolybius got a reaction from Honest_Bob in Why does the value of Ripple (XRP) have to change? Why is it worth more than a common postage stamp?   
    Sensible advice but please moderators close this thread and please people go to the reputable sources of information.
    i am sorry @Honest_Bob any anonymous person can claim to be anything they like to attempt to establish “ argumentum ab auctoritate” in a forum like this with no way of checking. And lets be frank this is a crypto forum, a sector that has attracted vast numbers of paid shills, narcissists, paid Fudsters, and instant experts who don’t just lie, get facts wrong etc but do not even understand the basics of banking, technology or economics. Its terrible how many people will lose money because of wrong or dishonest advice about crypto but can we try to direct people to better sources of information about something that can kill.

    xerxesramesepolybius reacted to KarmaCoverage in Xpring Open Payments   
    https://docs.openpayments.dev/overview
    I read/skimmed the docs, and it looks good to me. This should allow apps like Uber/Airbnb to integrate with ILP, and therefore with a single coding effort, all ILP Connectors and any ledgers that the ILP Connectors support.
    On the very last page there is a flow for 3rd Party Payment Initiations like a Google or Apple Pay.
    This Open Payments initiative by Xpring should reduce the risk level of every investment they make, because each application startup will not have reinvent the "ILP integration wheel".
    The only thing that came to mind was, the idea that with Open Payments, two Exchanges could operate a Nostro/Vostro relationship directly, going around the XRPL... but they can do that already anyhow.
    All in all, this effort should speed up adoption and growth of the IoV, at both the application layer, and I'd also think it would also make it easier operating at the ILP Connector level. Once again, the Ripple folks have demonstrated superb strategy in choosing their initiatives.

    xerxesramesepolybius got a reaction from quan in Dear Ripple, please make this fact public   
    Sorry, no does not make any sense.
    The fact is the same people created Ripple the company and XRP the cryptocurrency. Ripple did not buy the bottle openers/XRP
    no one in Ripple denies that.
    please have another go, even Brad’s oil analogy was better and that didn’t work that well.

    In general I'd say the answer is 'some'. The ODL tracker on https://utility-scan.com/#/dashboard looks at payments on the xrp ledger and compares them to trades on exchanges using the same amount. I think I read on this forum quite recently that they don't include it until they see 15 transaction that match the pattern. When those transactions are more than 24 hours old, they become part of the history, but don't affect new tests or numbers. However, there may be individuals who are doing ODL like activity - or random buy/sell pairs that appear to be matching that will appear as ODL activity on utilityscan.com - my own suspicion is that the numbers seen the other day including JPY, KRW etc were probably not ODL activity, but probably random trades that just happened to match the pattern.
    My own ODL tracker uses a different approach. I scan payments on ledger and do a very basic statistical check to see if the 'corridor' looks like ODL payments. By this, I mean are there regular payments from one account to another, using the same destination tag - are both accounts known as exchange accounts. Do the payments have sensible transaction sizes, do they fit a certain weekday/weekend pattern. When I find a corridor that 'looks' ODL-like, I then apply a filter to remove spurious corridors. for example, I see a great many ODL-like corridors that are probably arbitrage-bots between exchanges, casinos and other wallets that are 'unknown' - these I remove and what's left are then filtered down to 'candidates' and from there I keep only the ones that ripple have announced as trading partners, (bitso, bitstamp, coins.ph etc). When I plot the amounts on those corridors, I get numbers that match the ones shown on utility-scan.com - except for the JPY/KRW stuff - because I do not consider a corridor open until the trading pattern has stayed active for at least two weeks (I can increase or decrease that window).
    If a corridor is active during a period of time, and then goes inactive. I drop it from my list. This means that if I plot historical charts going back in time, traffic on these 'corridors' does not appear. In general, the amounts on these corridors is quite small by today's standards.
    If you look for example at this plot of weekly totals

    you will see activity USD/PHP and USD/MXN at low levels during the early part of last year - this was almost certainly testing of systems before they went properly 'live' later in the year. However, we have no proof of that and it might have just been normal traffic. My analysis relies on the assumption that if you were ripple/moneygram/other, it is unikely that you would mix ODL traffic with other money flows - when creating a new wallet is so easy and having different account tags on the exchange can be arranged. From an accounting point of view, it makes things much more straightforward to use certain wallets for certain operations and then summing/plotting/accounting becomes simpler.
    I should upgrade my scripts to keep 'old' corridors so that if ones come online, but then go dark again, then the summed traffic on those corridors is included. However, I am mostly interested in the main corridors and if old ones did exist and go dark, I would only care if they were big ones with a lot of traffic like the ones we see in the plot above.
    When I started tracking this back in 2018, I was having a hard time identifying 'corridors' because volumes were small, but now the signal stands out very clearly. And I ran my number (as mentioned in another thread the other day) against the numbers in the ripple q4 report and they %changes between quarters and other details (I forget what now) do match very closely what I see, so I am confident that my plots are basically correct. If I include or miss a handful of transactions, I'm not bothered - I'm interested in the overall trend and the main total.
    (I also see accounts that appear to be involved in rebalancing these corridors, but I am not including them in these plots).
    EDIT: One thing I forgot to mention is that the very early USD/PHP traffic last year was comparably speaking larger than the actual traffic taking place now. so it was probably setting up accounts as lots of large transfers that were 'too big' took place, however when real traffic started flowing, I kept the 'corridor' in my list. So, yes - there is almost certainly some spurious data.

    Please quote any interaction I have made in that club I dare ya.
    Once I was in that club in 2018 and I posted one thing and that was a joke.
    I'll even tell the same joke.
    A man entering a pub noticed a huge a$$ horse standing next to the bar. On top of the bar there was a big jar filled with money with a sign saying " whomever can make this horse laugh will claim the jar "
    So the man walked up to the horse, and whispered in the horses ear. (2sec) later the horse starts bursting into laughter.
    The man turns towards the flabbergasted bartender and claims the jar.
    - The next day -
    The same man walks in the pub, seeing the same horse but with a new jar filled with money, with a sign saying; " whom ever can make this horse cry will claim the jar"
    So the man walks up to the horse and whisper's in the horses ear. (2sec) later the horse and the man walk together outside the pub (1min) later they both walk in the horse is in tears crying.
    So the man picks up the jar and walks away the bartender shouts in frustration " How the hell did you just do that?" 
    The man turns around and says
    " Well the first time I said to him, that my d!ck is bigger then his. "The second time I showed him."
     
     
    After posting that I haven't had any activity in that club none. so go ahead and post your screenshot I'm curious.

    A lot of people have lost a lot of money and you say it is their fault in a forum that is all about investing in XRP? And also if someone says they have the right to complain about it you start swearing at them.
    So if you saw a car crash with people laying wounded on the road, what would you do? Point at them and say “stop crying, its your fault, haha!”

    I've liked XRP for a long time. But if you think a company can go almost 3 years with this power and publicity and still have a penny stock listing you are nuts.

    xerxesramesepolybius reacted to quan in Dear Ripple, please make this fact public   
    Your thinking process is same as the media that writes false information. 
    Let's say, someone invented a bottle opener and a company saw a huge potential in it and bought most of bottle opener from the inventor. 
    This case, even if the company market and sell the bottle opener, nobody would consider bottle openers as the company's security. 
    Strangely, when we replace the bottle openers to digital asset, people tend to confuse it as the company's security. Just like you did. 
    Ripple invested in xrp (bottle opener), the xrp( bottle opener) is not the company's security, but an investment and marketed product. 
     The misunderstanding is suppressing Ripple from marketing xrp freely on the market, hurting ripple's business model.

    I see the approach you're trying to make with this analogy, but it's not a good one. Is the implied warranty of a bottle opener to make someone an ROI or to simply be used as a tool to open a bottle so you can drink from it?

    I didn’t complain about the price but, I try not to look, oh God, it’s 13.45 cents!
    i was just saying people in general have a completely legitimate right to complain about it if they wish. So please do not bully them or me.
