    Let me clear this up for those that don’t understand this video. 
    Brad was talking to a big filthy rich banker about the entry level Ripple tech xCurrent, which doesn’t use XRP. 
    This filthy rich banker interrupted Brad to specifically ask about the advanced ripple tech xRapid, which uses XRP. 
    The filthy rich banker is already looking ahead at how XRP can solve problems filthy rich bankers deal with every day.
    THIS. IS. HUGE.

    Quick transcript for you buddy:
    So Brad and this "guy" having a chat. Besides talking about the excellent beard game  of Brad . Brad mentioned one of his babies Xcurrent. But before Brad can do his sales pitch, this"guy" interrupts  him and want to know about the settlement qualities of Xrapid. So skip the Xcurrent, we are intersted in the real deal.
    "this guy" happens to sit on the biggest pile of money in the world and has more liquidity than any other. So Brad and "this guy" high five and sign a contract, making us filthy rich.
    But first they go together to the barber, to work on the same excellent beard Brad has going.
    note:" Above might not be a 100% accurate transcript, would recommend viewing when you have the time"

    This again shows that patience is key.  Ripple has a plan and they are hard at work achieving their goals.  They don’t need to announce or tweet every victory along the way, so long as they win in the end.  Hodl. Sleep easy. The good people at Ripple have our backs

    fd67890 reacted to mDuo13 in How does xRapid provide liquidity?   
    xRapid uses public exchanges that trade XRP to source liquidity from speculators and other members of the public who're trading cryptocurrencies for fiat and vice-versa. It pairs trades at different exchanges in real time and transfers the XRP between exchanges. It is, in a sense, a really polished standard interface to the exchanges' own APIs.
    It automates the following process, which one can do (slower, thereby less profitably) by hand:
    Deposit USD at (source exchange) Trade USD for XRP at (source exchange) Withdraw XRP from (source exchange), deposit at (destination exchange) Trade XRP for MXN at (destination exchange) Withdraw MXN from (destination exchange), send to customer

    Unfortunately, that blocks offline account creation flows. Since you don't know the starting sequence number for the account, you can't compose the transactions to configure it. That might not be fatal, but it is disruptive. But having your light account turn into a regular account after you wiped it out might be disruptive too.

    fd67890 reacted to JoelKatz in Can the first usage of xRapid actually flood the market with XRP?   
    I agree with you. Unfortunately, I don't know the exact details of how the transactions are timed or how the spreads are computed. The third party market makers we've employed understand that we don't want to kill rallies or engineer the price and that our desire is to choose sale targets and approximately reach them having as little effect on the price as possible. To prevent me from gaming the system either for personal benefit or to benefit Ripple, or inadvertently giving others the ability to do so, I am not given access to any details. Every suggestion I've made to them got back "we're already doing that", so I think they know what they're doing.
    They might adjust it to a long term median. They might back off when volume is above normal. Those things I don't know.

    fd67890 reacted to nikb in FUD fighting: "Ripple can just print more XRP"   
    To be perfectly clear, I think that any such change would be ill-advised if not down right stupid and that it would never happen; anyone proposing it would be laughed out of the room.
    But let's think outside the box. After all, code can always be changed and no mechanism could ever prevent that.
    I'll start by pointing out that this isn't unique to Ripple; Bitcoin's 21 million BTC limit could be raised by changing the code too. The code inside a pacemaker could be changed to shock your heard to the tune of "Ice Ice Baby". The "the code can be changed" attack just doesn't carry a lot of weight with me. Sure, it can. But that doesn't mean it will.
    What if it did happen?
    The ultimate safeguard in these systems are people; the people who maintain the code, the people that operate servers and, ultimately, the people that use the system. Let's look at those groups, one at a time:
    First are the people who maintain the code. I can tell you I would not write code to increase the amount of XRP and I would not allow such code to merged into the code base while I am responsible for it. I'd resign, if it came to that.
    Which brings us to the people who operate servers: they choose which version of the software to run and can't really be forced to run it. Would they agree to upgrade to code that changes one of the core invariants of the system? My bet is that they would not.
    Lastly, there are the users; the last line of defense. If the system changes from under their feet, then will they continue to use it? Users value stability and they don't want a system that changes from under them in ways that contradict the system's core principles. If the amount of XRP was increased, what would those users do?

    fd67890 reacted to Ctrl-Z in 10,000 drops stuck in escrow?   
    Its not designed for a specific one use. Its a tool, and yes, it can also be used by people who are wise enough to be realistic with themselves.
    Look at the history of wallets, people sell; even those who've been in it since the beginning. Life happens. Rents need to be paid. Loans need to be paid back.
    It is normal for someone who makes $50,000 a year to cash out when his holdings reach a million dollars. Would you blame him?
    Sometimes we have to be realistic. Its easy to talk big now.

    Just be aware, that that screenshot clearly shows his tweets are protected (the padlock). Twitter say that re-tweeting or quoting a tweet that is protected is against the T&Cs. I'm not sure about screenshots. But just be aware... they might take exception to this. I'd at least check (it not already) with Nico if he is happy you doing this, as he might have protected his tweets for a reason (e.g. said too much, realised might have broken some agreement) or something.

    Great to see how this evolved this evening.
    I doubt Cuallix Communications/IR Dept is happy with how this "unofficial" confirmation came out in the open. If this is indeed the CFO himself, it's a strong and honest message and probably also triggered after all the FUD. A warrior like HODOR deserve such a confirmation imho and I can imagine the CFO was thinking the same.
