  1. Thank you for your comment, Julian. I have never asked Hodor to work for me, have I? The purpose of my original comments to Hodor's blog was to provide my personal opinion/questions on his blogs which I read. As a reader i feel thankful to Hodor for what he does, but i feel like having even better content. Its as simple as that. I appreciate your opinion, Julian, but please respect mine. Thank you.
  2. I've meant this specific section (i have actually quoted it in my previous post) : "...the companies in the XRP ecosystem are continuing their steady progress in building out the necessary liquidity, software, tools, and applications for XRP to thrive and grow. Ripple has super-charged this trend with enormous investment from Xpring, its initiative that plows massive amounts of capital back into the circle of companies championing XRP. These companies are using XRP for a variety of immense new use cases." So, can you please specify which "companies" are you mentioning that "are using XRP for a variety of new immense use cases?" I expect your blog to be more judgemental and versatile. For example, it would be great to have your opinion (and believe me i personally value it a lot) on things like Ripple/Chris Larsen/Mr X selling their XRPs. Is it smth you worry or not? Why is it happening? My opinion is that Ripple and/or its shareholders should be free to make whatever decision on XRP they want. I'm absolutely calm about it and i presume they sell XRP for a reason and this is well though strategic move. I also expect you to back up your thoughts or assumptions with data on a best efforts basis. It is always great to have specifics (see me comment above re Xpring). When i have asked you to share some analytics on how your audience grows or shrinks all i wanted to see was if there was a pattern beetween FOMOed 2017 crypto market and the number of ppl reading your blog. And the same for 2019 - number of your readers or "reads" vs 2017. It is not a secret that Google search on "Bitcoin" is nowhere near to what it was during 2017 FOMO, hence less retail interest in crypto, hence bears still have power to pull the market down. My last question you have answered, thank you. General comment - i felt your response was a bit harsh. I wasn't meant to have you on, just felt like your blogs becoming more analytical with your opinion on both XRP/Ripple development and drawbacks or smth you don't like or see as a threat. Thank you.
  3. Thanks for your efforts and consistency, @Hodor In your blog you mention: "...the companies in the XRP ecosystem are continuing their steady progress in building out the necessary liquidity, software, tools, and applications for XRP to thrive and grow. Ripple has super-charged this trend with enormous investment from Xpring, its initiative that plows massive amounts of capital back into the circle of companies championing XRP. These companies are using XRP for a variety of immense new use cases." Hodor, have you had a chance to go through this thread? It seems like Xpring developments have not progressed that well contrary to what you mention in your blog. Can you advise please? Am i missing something? Do you have any data to back up your positive sentiment re Xpring? --- Another question i have is as follows - can you please share with us analytics as to how often (how many times) is your blog read in 2019 vs. 2018 and 2017? Another bit i'd like you to elaborate on please is this: " The market continues to behave in a way that doesn't punish individual investors for making the incorrect choice; most of the trading occurs on exchanges, where people can instantaneously trade one crypto for another at the speed of a centralized database, not understanding that proof-of-work cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin and Ethereum could never support such real-time settlement. These new investors, if their crypto never leaves the exchange, are not exposed to the failings of these obsolete cryptocurrencies."

  5. Counting and analyzing all these wallets and txs is a complex issue as we do not know all nuances. What we seem to forget is demand. Is it right to say that the demand for XRP is not that high (and is not growing) hence Ripple's (or its shareholders) XRP sales suppress the XRP price? And the XRP demand is not growing due to progress of XRP implementation is being slower than needed. Plus regulatory concerns that haven't been resolved yet.
  6. Just to make sure I'm following you: the high risk / high reward (which i agree crypto investment is) balance tips over into very high risk / low reward due to XRP progress being slower then it would need to be to keep high risk / high reward ratio balanced equally? Is that what are you saying..? Many thanks for all your inputs.
  7. Hi Eric there is a bit of hysteria with Ripple and/or Mr. Larsen selling XRPs Does it influence your view on XRP price or you are purely TA guy and base your assumptions mainly on TA and crypto assets speculation (due to utility driven demand is not here anytime soon)
  8. @RegalChicken I hope your sleep in the West Coast US is deep and steady so are XRP fundamentals, but when you wake up kindly take some time to share your views with the community. Cheers)
  9. OTC sales does influence price. In line with a strategy of making XRP big. I do. And im fine with XRP going to zero now. But i think XRP is crawling already.
  10. Look, i presume you are frustrated over XRP price. Do i want XRP priced at USD10+ ? YES, i do, but: CL is not an idiot. Why would he harm his own baby? Is it possible that he does with certain reason which will help XRP adoption (read increase XRP price)? It is IMO. What we know is limited amount of information. Im pretty sure that Ripple know what they do and that they do this for better with forward looking approach. I don't care what Ripple or its shareholders do with their XRPs as long as fundamentals remain the same. And No, im not happy with the pace of XRPs adoption and Ripple progress. I think it should have been faster. 2020 will be decisive for that matter which is around the corner. Competition is not dormant. Having said so i clearly recall the same sentiment here in 2017. In the course of two crazy weeks of December 2017 everyone was super nice and happy greeting each other wishing Merry Xmass 2018. The same thing will happen here once XRP price gain some traction. Cheers)
  11. Im not saying Ripple should inform/target retail investors specifically. Im saying Ripple (and esp Brad - the CEO) should have been more cautious with his 'cats out of the bag' and 'household names'. Cmon...he is the CEO and he knows how this market reacts. Every singly word of such a company in such a space must be well thought of and properly delivered.
  12. I agree with you here and i've said Ripple is bad at communicating proper messages ontime. And im frustrated that Brad 'sells' XRP/Ripple on a stage but can't back up his words in the real life with real actions. But im fine with Ripple selling their XRPs the way the like.
  13. @RegalChicken you had posted this thread and kept silence ever since. Care to elaborate and react please? I'm really not getting all these fear and concerns with regard to Ripple selling XRPs? So what? It suppress the price of XRP in the short term so what? XRP/Ripple fundamentals haven't been changed. Have they? Whatever we know and assume is just a tip of the iceberg. We might overthink and over dramatize news. Our assumptions could be wrong. XRPs are being distributed to end users/speculators. I dont find it bad. Ripple, however, must do better job in communicating proper messages to the audience in a timely manner as non acquaintance creates FUD.
