    Thanks. I’ll start from there. I’m concerned about this Evergrande situation. Looking to identify possible ramifications.

    My expectation is that it will start off with less than 1 cent, but might start gaining value once the F-Asset system is turned on.

    I believe there will be dApps supported by some FTSOs to be able to delegate. I don't believe you absolutely must use Ledger/DCent/Bi-frost.

    Instructions are in the link in that tweet. I was able to connect using my MetaMask wallet and see my SGB balance. Unfortunately I think that's all we can do for now - I think the next step is to wait for data providers to get up and running so we can delegate our votes.

    All comments above have alluded to some of this, but we need to think beyond the current market IMO.
    XRP price and liquidity
    Higher the XRP price, higher the value of a single transaction supported by the order book Deeper the order book, higher the number of transactions per second Both of the above are unrelated to each other. However, sustained utility transactions will help set a floor price for XRP. Speculative value, if any, will be above that.
    Addressable Market
    This is where I differ from some of the initial estimates above. Today’s cross-border payments market is only table stakes. This is a disruptive technology and will enable markets that were previously not possible. 
    Personal Computers Internet Mobile Cloud Computing Think about the size of addressable markets that got added with each of these epochs. In fact, blockchain isn’t feasible as a technology and wouldn’t have succeeded as a viable option without any of those. We needed guaranteed, sustained, high Internet speeds with the power of social media connecting people and with powerful computers running the technology.
    The addressable market that will be enabled by the Internet of Value will be significant. 
    Back to XRPL
    Cross-border payments market is huge, but isn’t nearly as big as it needs to be, because of entry barriers for both small payment players and small retail users. The market is trailing demand here.
    @Treehouse is right. Public blockchains will not be used for domestic payments. CBDCs *might*. But side-chains like the ones RippleX is working on will provide connectivity between the two.
    NFTs will be huge. Not pixel art, but the ability to trade on personal assets (digital rights, physical goods, house, etc) across the world will infuse significant liquidity and enable new markets.
    Metaverse is a big deal. Not games necessarily, though that may be the initial market. The idea of a virtual world that runs in parallel with the real world will encompass our daily lives - both personal and professional. FB made the most progress so far, but MSFT, AAPL, Snapchat etc are all making strong moves here. I expect blockchain to play a critical role to enable the Metaverse economy.

    To be fair, we need to wait until at least September 27 before wallets are accessible and a few more days after that for FTSO. Still a big milestone. The path is set and it’s a matter of moving forward on jt

    Ripley got a reaction from Seoulite in Gala Token Price Exploding   
    Congratulations to everyone. 
    A word of caution - the way to differentiate a bubble is when speculation is indiscriminate. Your words around “buy basically any token early enough” reminded me of that. 
    If that is the reality (and that may well be), my advice would be to be more careful about a bad dump. Of course the bubble itself is being fed by Fiat printing across the world and there is no way of knowing when this is going to stop. Could be months, or years.
    Note: I’ve no opinion on Gala, but I hope they do well. Meta verse is going to be huge. They got their market right. I’m biased in favour of Flare.

    I meant what you expressed. It needn’t come to XRPL alone but remember that no one beats XRPL at payments. No one. Not yet. And it’s not a matter of TPS, but even that is getting solved in a few months with side channels. Building great platforms isn’t enough. Platforms need great products. Crypto has great platforms but very very few have actual utility (that is, money that flows outside crypto instead of just rotating hands inside for speculative purposes)
    Also, Ripple sort of already built cross border payments. They haven’t had to do much engineering to extend their product portfolio in this direction. They were held back by regulatory uncertainty. 
    We’re also seeing significantly higher development for the past few years. Liquidity of XRPL and its Fiat on ramps - these things are super time consuming to build out. 

    I don’t want to speculate specific prices or claim that we’ll go to moon or something, but I’m eagerly waiting for the lawsuit to conclude in a positive way.
    I have high expectations for both XRPL and Ripple. Just you wait.

    Without change in fundamentals, it's all just coordinated cash flow. Don't worry. Unless you're a day/weekly trader, you should be okay.

    I think the point you might be missing is that if successful, XRP has capabilities that are entirely new to finance.  
     
    In the same way that PC’s seemed limited and nearly useless to tech experts used to mainframes, simply looking at one aspect of payments is not seeing the possibilities that might open up.  No one in early pc days predicted TikTok or Spotify.
    So streaming micropayments to mention just one XRPL skill set could open business opportunities that undreamt of right now.   Pathfinding is another.  DEX, layer 2 smart contracts…. the list goes on.
     
    Frankly I think any price modelling is a waste of time.  Speculation and unpredicted new opportunities will likely swamp any old style valuation model.  And on the downside,  black swans could kill it mid launch.  
     
    No one knows,  but time will tell.  My bet is on UP.
