  1. So glad I sold almost all last week and started day trading other coins. Xrp is the most manipulated coin out there; and budges at nothing in terms of movement. Already upped my overal portfolio returns with 30%. Multiply that with 52 weeks and give or take we’re looking at 1500% give or take (apart from value increases of particular longs). Don’t see xrp hitting 3,4 any time soon within a year...
  2. Yup. Sold 20% of my zerps for stellar 5 days ago and yesterday 40% more for some btc, iota and monero. Riding some other waves for profit seems like a sane thing to do. By today I can almost buy twice the amount of zerps I sold, and I was already in the 2% hodler club.
  3. Yeah the pumping is becoming more and more bizarre these days, it's like they keep it going until it reaches the moon... I bet since this whole USD/USDT thing is pretty sensitive to the US government since they're the official issuer of USD, that something will happen sooner than later in terms of shut downs. But then again, I think the bitfinex peeps are tucked away safely in China, so who can touch them?
  4. No, I think the problem is the exchanges that also allow trading in USDT. Bittrex had their USDT deposits disabled in the last couple of days, but they still allow trading in those pairs. Same with all the other ones. I like bitstamp because they don't use USDT. Technically all these exchanges that use Tethers and Bitfinex above all since they're the masterminds behind this printing machine, will eventually get dragged along when it explodes. Unless they wise up and all exchanges except Bitfinex start delisting USDT pairs.
  5. The whole USDT issue is definitely worrying. I've been following this guy lately on Twitter and I'm getting more paranoid by the day to say the least. It's somehow very reassuring to invest in something solid like xrp, but at the same time, it is also traded against USDT on many exchanges. Kraken, poloniex, bittrex, just to name a few of the bigger ones.
  6. Any thoughts on this? Seems to me like the guy acted on his own, but the article makes it look like the guy was actually a Ripple employee/manager: https://www.japantimes.co.jp/news/2017/10/18/national/crime-legal/manager-ripple-cryptocurrency-exchange-arrested-scam/#.Weh_utDQvYU
  7. Hi guys, not sure if this was already mentioned anywhere, but I just found this commented out in the source code on https://swell.ripple.com/agenda/ (after the Steve Miller Band): The logos are: - Bank of America / Merryl Lynch, MUFG, RBC, Santander, Standar Chartered, Westpac. Would this fall under the big announcement, or is this something we already know? Most of these partners are known, but maybe this could be some announcement of things going live? (fingers crossed)
  8. XRP live in Brazil? Check out the icon for São Paulo: https://thenounproject.com/term/sao-paulo/168659/ And here for the actual sidewalks in some areas in the city (some are exactly the same as the Swell logo). But most likely, this is all just my own wild imagination & speculation.
  9. Thanks for mentioning the other topic! Yeah, I was just amazed at the effort some folks go through just to screw other people over. I also filed a complaint with Google because the ads are used for phishing.
  10. Hi guys, today a friend of mine had to set up his account and he almost fell for a phishing attempt through Google AdWords. Luckily he sent me a screenshot of the url, and it was gatahub.net. A tiny difference easily overlooked by newbies. These phishing attempts through AdWords ads are more and more common nowadays, please be careful (same thing when Googling for "bittrex", there is usually one or two ads pointing to other sites that look exactly the same, only to steal your login data. This was the ad that appeared on a "gatehub" Google search: And this is what the site looks like: I'm pretty sure most people won't fall for this, but it's good to keep an eye out on these types of scams.
  11. Do you have a time frame as well? When it leaves the atmosphere I'll see you on some tropical island
  12. Thanks for mentioning @T8493 I tried finding a post about it in the topics / search, but couldn't find one.
  13. Since the site's Wordpress, for that I could technically apply, but if it's anything ledger- or blockchain related they're looking for, I'm afraid that's out of my league
  14. Came across this today after taking a peek in the source code of the ripple.com website. Pretty awesome way to announce coders that they're hiring, if you ask me:
  15. Happened to me so many times today at Kraken. Bittrex executes immediately. Not sure what the deal is with Kraken lately, but it seems to be getting worse. It's just so mega frustrating when you know you hit the sell button to buy back more later, the order tilts and gives an error, only for you to see the price go down even more
  16. Well, those are the actual search volumes (dumbed down, but still the graphs are accurate). So people do search for "swift". This search volume just gives an idea of how many people search for Swift in general. But you are right in the sense that the broad search "Swift" also includes other Swifts, like Taylor. After adding some more detailed search terms, Ripple is already over Swift in search volume, but xrp still lags behind:
  17. Just doing some Google trends comparisons and saw the following: 2004-present for xrp, ripple and interledger: As you can see, spikes in price coincide nicely with spikes in organic searches entered by Google users. First one was in May, second one is happening now. Also interesting that "Interledger" / "interledger protocol" etc all have almost no search volume. "Xrp" shows the same trend, only volume is lower. When we compare this against "Swift", I think we get a sense of the true potential for Ripple & xrp, take a look: This just made my day
  18. @hodor thanks for the great post! I recently read "The Case for Gold" by James Rickards, in combination with "The Road to Ruin" and I can recommend both as excellent reads for more background information on how the upcoming bubble will play out. Especially the first one is interesting because Rickards gives such compelling arguments on why gold is still a store of value, and most of those could be used for xrp as well. The only biggest downside to xrp -or any cryptocurrency for that matter-, in his argument, is that if the power cuts out, internet cuts out, in those cases cryptos can't save you. But I think we won't be heading for a Zombie Apocalypse apocalypse just yet, haha! So XRP it is (although I would recommend having a % of every portfolio in physical gold)
  19. Seems for some people there's a paywall on that article, so here it is completely: <removed>
  20. Just stumbled upon this article: Six global banks join forces to create digital currency https://www.ft.com/content/20c10d58-8d9c-11e7-a352-e46f43c5825d Ripple is not mentioned in the article, but do you think that this could mean these banks want to reinvent the wheel, or will they use Ripple for it? According to the article it doesn't sound like it: "Barclays, Credit Suisse, Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce, HSBC, MUFG and State Street have teamed up to work on the “utility settlement coin” which was created by Switzerland’s UBS to make financial markets more efficient." To me it sounds like they will create their own coin for this, but of course, who knows. Do you think this will impact the price for xrp in any way?
  21. Definitely. Tried daytrading with xrp at the start, only to want to shoot myself every time it went up right after selling and always ending up with less xrp, except for once. The conclusion is: if you believe in xrp and Ripple, you're better off hodling in the long run.
  22. I actually think that slowly people are catching on. I am a member of various crypto groups, and people there (a lot of newbies as well) mention xrp and its use cases. And the absurd low price it is at. On bitcoin forums/Facebook groups they are waging a war on segwit2/whatever and slow & expensive transactions, and even there every now and again users comment that btc should be used as a store of value, and that xrp is way better for transactions. Now, granted, this is a very small group of people. However, regular investors are catching on, and I think many people might have misread the marketing announcement by Ripple on Twitter for pumping things up too much, whereas this was actually not the case. Institutional investors KNOW blockchains will disrupt tech in a way that we haven't seen before. They just needed some more reassurance about real-world applications, and influential people backing Ripple. I think the millions are flooding in streams to xrp will steadily keep flowing (at the same time I hope that I can still buy some more at these prices, so it shouldn't go too fast! Lastly, I think the podcast had its repercussions. The way Brad Garlinghouse explained Ripple's mission and that there are unforeseen ways of using the technology is impressive, but at the same time he keeps stressing that Ripple's main mission is facilitating and making transactions cheaper and faster, and whatever comes into play after that is a win. The way he compared it to Amazon getting started out with books, and then adding a range of services was just so clear and to the point. Personally I feel that if I played this podcast to every member in my direct family and circle of friends, they wouldn't think twice about buying in at 0,25ct. Just my two cents.
