  1. You say 60 million like he's not almost entirely responsible for Ripple existing in the first place. It's *completely* none of my business, but if I had been the one divvying up the XRP, Joel Katz would be holding more than Chris Larsen (who was given 7 billion, I think). Don't worry about Joel Katz dumping XRP, worry if he leaves Ripple. That's when I jump ship...
  2. Never mind. I get it. The RCL will be able to compete in the auction. Carry on.
  3. I'm struggling to see when/why RCL would ever be used. Banks can use ILP to connect their ledgers to the network and Ripple will automatically execute an auction to assure best price, while also allowing banks to refine what type of offers they'll accept (regulatory stuff). That sounds like a complete package to me.
  4. Paging @tommytrain. He might be traveling. I think I saw some cool Paris pics from him on Instagram.
  5. I was excited to see the toothpick thread bumped up. I was hoping something was happening with the sculpture. Where does it live now?
  6. Because hackers have figured out that SWIFT credentials are easy to steal. There are no other barriers for accessing the SWIFT network nor are there any safeguards in place for compromised accounts. Falsified credentials have been used MANY times and even SWIFT doesn't expect it to stop.
  7. It's a good way to reach people looking for the solutions that Ripple solves. I was excited to see an ad the other day too!
  8. You can buy Bitcoin through Coinbase. If you already have a Ripple wallet, you can use Shapeshift to convert the Bitcoin into XRP.
  9. I'm sure I was the only one clever enough to Google "how to beat ATS."
  10. How do you have any way of knowing? I assumed "Apply Now" buttons were really ATS buttons.
  11. Thanks! Actually, it looks like the template can be modified as a Word doc. Will "extra touches" in a Word file cause the same problems? https://creativemarket.com/RefineryResumeCo/123839-Resume-Template-4-Pack-CV-Template
  12. Haha, thanks for the vote of confidence, @Morty! I'll give the regular way of applying a chance first and circle back to your idea if I get desperate. It actually reminds me of a joke I heard not too long ago: I was in a job interview today when the manager handed me his laptop and said, "I want you to try and sell this to me." So I put it under my arm, walked out of the building and went home. Eventually he called and said, "Bring it back here right now!" I said, "$100 and it's yours."
  13. There is a fintech position that I'm interested in applying for, but I'm worried about my resume being sent into an applicant tracking system black hole. I've read a few helpful articles with suggestions on how to "beat" the ATS and I'm rewriting my resume. There is one suggestion that I'm wondering about though: "ATS’ require cold conformity and simplicity. Therefore, you’ll need to delete any extra touches you’ve added to your resume, like logos, pictures, symbols, and shadings. Also stick to standard resume formatting in a normal font like Arial, Courier, or Times New Roman—the ATS can’t read fancy fonts and will reject your resume out of confusion. Send your resume as a Word doc or in rich text format instead of a PDF. Though ATS software is becoming better at reading PDFs, it can still miss important things when trying to process them." Does anyone know how true this is? I ask because I bought a special template that is almost entirely what this says *not* to use. (Oops!) Is a simple Word doc the way to go?
  14. Awww, thanks guys. @nikb @TPM @kanaas @Max Entropy
  15. I don't like to listen to myself talk. I get on my own nerves. I'd rather come here and bug you guys.
