  1. XRP is never going to be cool or sexy and that's ok. Because whatever is cool and sexy today won't be next week, next month, or next year. Brilliant technology > hype. Some of the smartest people hang out on this forum. We're a small group because the barrier to entry is high-level thinking. Intelligent people are rockstars.
  2. If only more men could be like that, haha. There aren't many of us that share this strange interest. I don't know what it's like for you guys, but I feel completely incompatible with men who aren't interested in the blockchain on some level. I don't care if they specifically hate Bitcoin (or Ripple) -as long as they can tell me 'why' intelligently. My post that you replied to is exactly 1 year old. FWIW, holding out and waiting for somebody with similar (albeit, unique) interests was the best thing I ever could have done.
  3. A lot of things go on behind the scenes that people never find out about. This little count down stunt has red flags all over it. People, especially in crypto, are not always what they seem. On the old forum, I was framed for brute forcing new user wallets. It was the scariest thing that ever happened to me and I was too terrified to reach out to anyone for help. I was mortified that *anybody* would ever think of me as a thief. Nobody even asked me. I was told -"we know it was you, don't bother lying, we have proof." Gah. My face is burning right now as I relive it all over again. That situation ended up getting mostly resolved. I cleared my name anyway. But that was over 2 years ago and I've never mentioned it until now because just being accused of something is enough to make other people look at you differently.
  4. Didn't it seem odd when corporations became people?
  5. I didn't know about this! Sweet. I can't ever post on FB about Bitcoin without hearing from the die-hard goldbugs. Cupriavidus metallidurans is now my official "talk to the hand" reply. http://gizmodo.com/5948739/researchers-discover-bacteria-that-can-produce-pure-gold
  6. I'm worried that @ripplerm is lying about having found a vulnerability for the sheer purpose of trying to extort an exchange.
  7. The alleged vulnerability is with Gateways, so this isn't Ripple's problem, it's ours.
  8. Do you think the planet can sustain endless exponential growth? I ask because the violence @Vinnie mentioned above is what actually backs our money. And the centralized power of money allows debt controls to be backed by death controls. Being able to print money out of thin air has helped finance the strip-mining of the planet's natural resources. But, like I mentioned, diminishing returns are starting to manifest. The new money will have to have death controls in place, just like the old money. Maybe this is the real reason for the urgent push to eliminate cash? The usual death controls (wars where lots of people get killed and countries are destroyed) aren't as easy to employ with today's weapons. Too much risk of committing collective suicide. Side note: It's been 1,053 day since Flint, Michigan has had clean water.
  9. Well, it's not very portable, haha. Gold also has a history of being confiscated and devalued (when attached to money).
  10. All tangible assets will survive because they will be revalued in terms of the new creepy global currency.
  11. I think it was difficult having Gateways pop up all over the world. Hopefully Celtic can chime in because I'm wondering if it's worth re-opening it as the Ripple Gateway Association with different chapters covering different areas.
  12. Diminishing returns are beginning to surface.
  13. The entire world LOVES the USD. More physical dollars are held outside of the country than within. There is a concentrated effort right now to keep the dollar from rallying, but capital keeps flocking to it anyway because the situation is much worse outside of the US. The would be stupid. Gold is an asset while money is nothing more than a unit of account / medium of exchange. Money never has been (even during the gold standard) and never will be a store of wealth. (Assets = wealth, money measures wealth, money is NOT wealth.)
  14. I thought that because Ripple isn't responsible for Gateways, that's why the IRBA (International Ripple Business Association) was formed. But it dissolved awhile back and I'm not sure why it didn't work out. @celticwarrior72?
  15. Vendetta with Ripple just like @velmet suggested. The OP asked: Consensus is NOPE.
