  1. Just an FYI for anyone with a Trust Wallet, I was hacked somehow about 36 minutes ago and and had BTC transferred out of my wallet, I was not logged in, I did not click on or answer and phishing emails, I did not respond to any email saying my account was compromised, I got an email about a BTC transfer that took place on my Trust wallet, figured it may have been a phishing email, got my phone and logged into my wallet only to see sure enough I had been a victim of a hack.   

  2. Question?

         I self custody my XRP on a Nano S,  I did complete the process for claiming my spark tokens though setting up an ETH address for which to receive the tokens, I used the xrp toolkit walk though to complete it and I show good to go when I go to xrpscan , it shows me how many spark tokens I am set to receive. My question is what do I need to do as a self custodian to make sure I am set up to receive the songbird drop? is there a walk though out there like there was for the spark tokens? 

  3. I use uphold and have had probably 20 transactions with them and have not as of yet had any issues, this is over the course of about the last 7 months. Not saying I recommend them over any other exchange but I started using them as an outlet to buy XRP in the US  when few exchanges would allow it and have found it easy and problem free.  

  4.         I Picture a XRP NFT more like bridge over a river of hungry wealth stealing monsters or something  :)   That or  if an artist could truly capture a picture of hope for the future in some way?  Something that depicts a family across the world separated from a loved member all alone working to send money home in order to provide medical care for a sick child or something like that, and the money saved by using XRP being the difference between getting care and getting a cure!!  It seems a one in a million to one scenario I understand, but the reality is people all over the world are working outside of their native country and in a lot of cases doing so in order to better the lives of those they love and care for and and extra $15 dollars a week or more saved on transfers makes a tremendous difference, that is compounded on a national scale and only helps the economy of that country by having more spendable $ moving around.    

    Cheesy I know but that is what I would hope a XRP NFT could convey in some way. 

  5. Hey all,

       So I have had a good portion of my XRP stored on my leger nano S  and use leger live on my pc, I have not seen any walkthrough at all that will incorporate the Leger live to claim spark tokens.  Has anyone successfully been able to claim spark tokens from xrp that have been stored on a Nano S? My leger live app is all I can even think of that would even show how much xrp I held as of Dec 12 2000.

  6. Hey Slugger,

        I have been holding XRP since early 2018 and have bought anywhere from .29 all the way up to just recently $1.69, I tell you this just to provide perspective not as any sort of a brag or boast.  I have seen my total investment tank to about 20% of what I had invested to just recently seeing it worth almost double what I have in it, I have never sold ONE xrp yet. I bought XRP because I believe in the utility it provides and the real world problems and adoption I have seen over the last three years, I truly believe that XRP is one of very few coins out there that solving global problems and the the companies and people embracing it on a global scale prove it! I apologize if I  strayed from addressing your question.

    :Do I think that XRP price will rebound over the next few days?  NO,   I say this not because I don't believe in xrp but because I don't believe the crypto market moves for the most part based on fundamentals of individual coins, I think it is still tied way to tightly to the rise and fall of Bitcoin, as long as Bitcoin continues to tank so will XRP and the majority of the crypto space.

    Good news....    I do believe that Bitcoin will rally and we will see the market do the same, if you have the ability to hold your investments at a minimum probably 90days to 6 months I think you will be greatly rewarded for it, this is not the first or even the 3rd time I have personally seen a dramatic pull back  and the market over all has been rewarded for perseverance over panic selling. I have a ton of other coins I speculated a lot more on but my heart belongs to XRP, it's my biggest holding and the one I will hold for as long as it takes for this space to finally start to separate the wheat from the chaff, when it does we will really see the moon everyone holding xrp knows it deserves!

         Just my own personal opinions here :)  I wish you the best whatever you decide.

  7. I might be off here on a few points so please feel free to correct my lack of understanding, we all know BTC mining is horrible for the world and un sustainable right? that said the real damage will end as soon as BTC is fully mined correct? Brad mentions how bullish he is on BTC while at the same time reminding the world of the ecological cost, I agree he might also be playing to the larger BTC community looking for a little "between friends support"  One final point, I feel like we all kind of see that the crypto market on a whole is not really tied to the fundamentals  behind a coin right now or real world utility and use cases but more so almost 100% speculative, and in a large part tied to BTC.  If we know that most of the price action for a good portion of the market is tied to the price of BTC  is it not a good thing for Brad to be bullish on BTC knowing that a higher BTC will probably mean a higher XRP?  is he not still helping each of us and the price of XRP being bullish on BTC?

  8. Hey all,

        I am hoping that some of you more technically skilled and crypto savvy folks can help a true challenged newb to the space, I have some XRP stored on my ledger nano S and have had it there for about a year and a half now, as I understand it I have till June 11th of this year to claim my spark tokens?  can anyone post a walk through of the best way for me to accomplish claiming my spark tokens for XRP stored on my ledger?

    As always thanks to all of you for any help you can provide!!



  9. Hey all,

       First time post but have held XRP for some years now. I have not bought any XRP since this whole SEC thing and I have always purchased my XRP on either Coinbase, Kraken, or Bitstamp, I have a buddy that just signed up for Binance US and he is not able to purchase it there either. Does anyone know where you can still purchase XRP and if there are any US exchange's left?
