    xRapid - The Beginning Game

    That was rude. Did not expect that from you TBH.
  2. 'A Ponzi scheme is a form of fraud which lures investors and pays profits to earlier investors by using funds obtained from more recent investors. The victims are led to believe that the profits are coming from product sales or other means, and they remain unaware that other investors are the source of profits.' - Wikipedia. 1. You can't really name Ripple/XRP a fraud, can you? Ripple seem to have a clear and transparent strategy/vision which is in public domain (as well as dozen of other information) hence any investor is responsible for a decision made: to invest or not invest. 2. In no way Ripple profits are coming from newer investors and not from sales. 3. Do you consider yourself 'a victim of a fraud' assuming you have invested into XRP?

    Proof-of-Work Crypto Will Be Left Behind

    How do you know? The whales (most of them AFAIK) are those who has been un crypto for years, so called early adopters. They have decent understanding of this market hence why would they be that dump/stubborn to not see 'what is obvious to us' (XRP the sandard)? I just don't want to accept that these whales are blinded by their BTC religion and are willing to take losses (by not moving out of BTC to XRP). How do you know? Apart from the link on dormant wallets being active again. I've been seeing 'when' vs 'if' wirding for a while, nothing new here. Don't get me wrong, i'm all in XRP, I've been on this forum for a while (and i've been hearing 'BTC is dead for at least 1.5 years now) but i don't see BTC/PoW capitulating that easy/that fast.

    XRapid ONLY uses XRP as counter currency

    Theoretical economists are definitely not those who disrupt, innovate and make things happen. "Antifragile" is in front of my eyes... XRP should be alright. Breath in, breath out and enjoy the show.

    You seem to be an intelligent person and i appreciate your inputs on this chat, but this is not the first time i notice you get aggressive/annoyed quite easily. Sometimes something which is very obvious to you is not that obvious to someone else, hence it takes time and efforts to explain it. Sometimes couple of times. Thanks and have a good day/evening/night.

    Not only, but, yes, correct, JK has elaborated on it once - https://www.quora.com/If-a-large-amount-of-banks-were-to-adopt-xrapid-and-started-using-xrp-how-would-that-impact-the-tokens-value

    Euro Exim Bank: 1st bank to use xRapid

    AFAIK there are quite a few businesses (trading businesees especially) which are 'noname companies' with very few employees, but they make good money. Look, why would this bank which is 'primarily focused on providing financial services for export and import companies' have billions in assets? Or hundreds in employees? All they need is an office (not neceserraly though), several computers and a license. What is more importantly is that they have exposure to some 80 countries and that they will use XRP. Everyone would have wanted to hear BoA or Santander or Credit Agricole instead of Euro Exim Bank but this is definitely a huge step forward. Probably the next announcement is just weeks/months away and probably it will be a major fin. institution, who knows? I believe there is no way back after this announcement... Fasten your seat belt, hold tight, but do not get over excited, patience is still the key... P.s. care to name any other crypto which is that close to being used/adopted as XRP currently is?
  8. @JA8I don't see any connections between XRP Army shills and XRP adoption. Don't you think any bank would, even after a DD you mention, say smth like: ohhh Jeeez, we like XRP so much and we want to save 60% on cross border remittances costs but we wont adopt XRP just because crazy XRP Army on Twitter? That sounds childish IMO.

    Euro Exim Bank: 1st bank to use xRapid

    Great news, esp in the first days of the year. It won't influence XRP price significantly from use case driven demand point of view but its definitely positive news. Crawl, walk, run...

    Challenge you to call XRP community members

    Several parties have been scheduled here, on XRP Chat but not actually happened unfortunately. I remember in about April 2017 there was USD 2.00 XRP party scheduled in the Netherlands but it had been cancelled eventually. I'm talking about XRP price milestones parties though, lucky refers to 2020 NY party which is different, so no parallels to be drawn here.

    Tiff Hayden is XRP Trump

    Where is the party happening? Amsterdam? ) Just curious... and sorry for being blunt, you may not answer it, if you not wish to. On topic - i'm still on Twitter and from timing zones point of view it is rather impossible for Dr. T and TH be the same person.

    The impossibility of liquidity in xrp

    Ohhh, maaaan, you have absolutely nailed it with Taleb and especially with 'Antifragility', spot on..! I've been reading this thread with the above book in my mind, so many parralells... @lucky must read, for sure!

    The impossibility of liquidity in xrp

    Who is Bob? MM? If so there are many other MMs that can step in. If Bob is "A customer of JPM" i can't imagine a reason for Bob to "refuse access to his XRP". Or I'm not getting your example properly..? Don't know why, but this thread makes me wanna HODL even stronger... Thank you all.
  14. I know what you mean but I would not be that certain as now things move much faster. Esp when it comes to technology. Competition is not sleeping...
