  1. I have another logical explanation: we have not yet seen any good news at all. For years already. No certainty about the legal status of XRP in the USA, no proof that XRP will actually be used mainstream. That means that, for all we know, the project can still blow up in smoke. Tried, failed. Still waiting for the confirmation of actual usage, and seeing proof of that on the ledger.
  2. centered paragraphs are also an indicator for: "not worth reading"
  3. You are assuming that you will be paying MORE for your content. But what you are forgetting is that you are already paying for your content, with your attention, and your data, that you are now giving away for free to multi-billion dollar companies. You currently have a very bad deal. Internet money will change that. Advertisers that want you to see their message will PAY YOU to see their advertisements. Why? Because your time has value. You don't want to pay for quality content? No problem, spend some time in your spam folder, sort it by highest bidder first, and earn enough money to pay for the content you really want to see, and can easily afford. That is where we are going to.
  4. I believe that is the big plan, yes. But don't tell anybody.
  5. You can't transfer less than one USD cent over current payment rails.
  6. Attackers should be aware that all XRP wallets are activated by another wallet, which creates forensic evidence trail. And the funds that are needed for the transactions also comes from some origin, creating another evidence trail. And they are cryptographically signing the malicious transactions with their secret key, which is evidence in court. These 'hackers' are risking a very long jail time when their plan has the desired effect.
  7. he would just repeat what he has said before: "I never comment on the price of XRP". that is why.
  8. I use Bitstamp, they are not controlling my information stream in any way. The problem is the full loop: Facebook is providing you a news and advertisement feed on your mobile device, this feed is constructed by "clever" algorithms. These algorithms can very precisely measure your response to that feed (what do you click, where do you pause, where do you continue to swipe down, when do you engage). This data can be combined with billions of other users, so that the self learning algorithms can optimize your information feed to maximize your screen time and engagement. This already works perfectly. Young people are literally glued to their screen. Even when walking, or biking, the phone is in their hand, and they have to watch every 60 seconds, or even non-stop. They are completely hooked. If you ask them, they will actually tell you that. There is nothing they can do about it: the algorithms are just too clever. They must stare at the device, and swipe through the endless stream of messages, infested with "promoted content" (content over which the algorithms have full control: they can literally change your view of the world with seemingly harmless "advertisements"). The only thing that was still missing: connecting this addictive device to your wallet. And connect the self learning algorithms to your spending behavior, so that the information feed can now be even better adjusted to maximize money sucked out of your wallet, and turn you into swiping and consuming zombie.
  9. A single for-profit company that has access to your full identity, your interests, your social network, your entire personality basically, by scanning what and how you swipe through the content that has been fed to you through your personal brainwash device (a.k.a. smartphone), now also gets access to your wallet, and your entire purchase history. It can not only make you want something, it can let you buy it with a click. The self learning algorithms will make sure you want it, and will make you click. Are we / governments just going to let our transformation into brainwashed swiping zombies that are fed and milked like cows by the server farms of Facebook happen? I don't think so.
