  1. Weird. It's almost as if Beard is paying people to NOT use XRP.
  2. I thought Ripple said a new customer could be connected in a few weeks.
  3. “In so far as a scientific statement speaks about reality, it must be falsifiable; and in so far as it is not falsifiable, it does not speak about reality.” Karl Popper
  4. 2017 was good for XRP. 2018 - 2020 were good for Vias and Ripple. They kept the lights on by dumping XRP while lying about "dozens of banks" etc.
  5. Then Aaron shall lay both his hands on the head of the live goat, and confess over it all the iniquities of the people of Israel, and all their transgressions, all their sins, putting them on the head of the goat, and sending it away into the wilderness by means of someone designated for the task. The goat shall bear on itself all their iniquities to a barren region; and the goat shall be set free in the wilderness. — Leviticus 16:21-22 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scapegoat
  6. I don't know what Schwartz means by "helped build the internet", but I'm pretty sure Google didn't create or help to create TCP/IP or HTTP.
  7. Funny because MoneyGram says they are only using XRP internally until their "innovation lab" figures out what it's for.
  8. Maybe this is why Ripple has let the XRPL DEX wither away. Ripple said they would fund projects that used the DEX, but since they started doing that the volume has collapsed and these days it is almost completely dead.
  9. Is this the "dozens of banks" guy?
  10. What is your reasoning for this, do you think they are delaying just to sell XRP for a while longer? I do find Ripple's apparent reluctance to do anything a bit suspicious. But then, the SEC isn't exactly all hands on deck either... would they not have any legal responsibility to stop Ripple?
  11. It is strange that this stupid company "General Bytes" only just added XRP (and then with a Ripple logo) after already supporting 40+ other coins. XRP, as they say, is number 3 market cap. It is also very well known, and the most practical/useful coin. Why on earth would they not have added it before? Is Ripple using it's "warchest" to pay companies NOT to support XRP? What gives?
  12. ?? Sorry, I don't have much of a "nose" for that sort of thing! I could never get past the "Curse of Ham".
  13. Presumably because the comment would be deleted, and they would be banned. Perhaps even arrested if they said too much. And you wouldn't believe it anyway.
  14. Yeah, right. They got a ton of money from Ripple. Where did it go? Apparently this "scooter" dude has been identified as a money grubbing parasite. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scooter_Braun Taylor Swift Feud Braun has engaged in a public feud with American singer-songwriter Taylor Swift. Braun's company had purchased Big Machine records which owns all of Swift’s recordings apart from her latest album, Lover. Swift posted on her social media that she was not allowed to publicly perform her back catalouge at the American Music Awards and on a Netflix special[37][38][39]. On her post, Swift said: “Scott Borchetta and Scooter Braun have now said that I’m not allowed to perform my old songs on television because they claim that would be re-recording my music before I’m allowed to next year.”[40] In addition, she called on her fans to let Braun “know how you feel about this”. This caused widespread criticisms from the public with the #IStandWithTaylor trending on Twitter[41] and notable people such as Halsey, Gigi Hadid, Selena Gomez, Cher and Elizabeth Warren[42][43][44]promoting a conversation about record ownership and women in the industry. The label denied the allegations, claiming that “At no point did we say Taylor could not perform on the A.M.A.s,”
