  1. well, I didn't want to call attention to that....
  2. Agree! Agree! And THIS is a fun vid to watch, just because:
  3. As in dry cleaning, er, money laundering?
  4. Agree, but beyond the benefits to the individual borrowers, this is also a great vote of confidence in the long term value of XRP, which, in itself, is very good!
  5. Now there's an interesting idea, something like the peer lending companies, but with crypto? It looks like they "partner" with businesses, but perhaps not individuals.
  6. I like the idea, but personally wouldn't want to put my zerps on the line for a stupid loan...that's like refinancing your house, FFS...
  7. THIS IS GREAT!! Kudos, @P3T3RIS I hope you make it to the States, also! Cheers!
  8. This is cool, and could really open the door, so to speak. It looks like Catalyst Corporate has been a leader in the past: "In the early 2000s, Catalyst Corporate was a pioneer in the electronic image exchange of paper checks. Two years ago, it pioneered a web-based, real-time deposit capture suite of services, called TranzCapture. The next step in pioneering new efficiencies in payments for its members is researching blockchain delivery of international remittances."
  9. LOL....RIIIGHT...heard it from a friend, who, heard it from a friend, who.... https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=1&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=2ahUKEwj0utnB5YPeAhWSxFkKHcaVBjMQyCkwAHoECAYQBQ&url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.youtube.com%2Fwatch%3Fv%3DeN4I3XIoRxA&usg=AOvVaw21GI-Ruse9VsfrD1eOvRzN
  10. Impressive, but if you first bought in at $2 and you "kept buying the whole way down," and you are now at break even at $0.42, you must have bought a SH*TLOAD at sub $0.42, so kudos and way to go. Totally agree with the rest of your post! Cheers!
  11. Nice find, @DreXRP Thanks! I am encouraged to read this one: Do you have a sense of what the Trump administration thinks about a product like Ripple? When I started to meet with people in government and regulators, I had very low expectations. I have been truly amazed at the open-mindedness, number one. And number two, the smart questions, sometimes even tough questions. There’s clearly a lot of homework going on. The White House in particular seems to be thinking about what it means to have 80 percent of bitcoin mining taking place in China and a majority of Ether mining taking place in China. When you look at XRP, there is no mining, so from a foreign-control aspect or from an environmental aspect, XRP is a very different beast. And in conversations we’ve had with the administration, they seem to get that and think that might matter. And this is an interesting perspective: You’re a former journalist. Tell me, what questions should I have asked you that I did not ask? I always asked that question when I finished doing an interview, and I never got a good answer out of it. I think the question I get all the time is “When is the SEC going to say something about XRP?” And I think it’s possible the answer is never. I don’t know that the SEC wants to be in a position to have to comment on every single cryptocurrency or digital asset created and issue a ruling about it. I don’t know if they like what they did with bitcoin and Ether. I would guess that an administrative agency doesn’t want to take on regulating an entirely new part of the world when no one’s asked them to do it, and no one’s going to raise their budget for doing it.
  12. LOL. OR one and the same person? Multiple personalities?
  13. Best rebuttal ever. And with no need to even utter a word.
  14. Another mainstream article with bullish sentiment for our favorite crypto asset https://www.forbes.com/sites/cbovaird/2018/10/02/will-xrp-reach-1-this-year/#1ed913361352
