  1. When listening to people in Ripple talking about xrp as pre-mined, I wonder if they should perhaps drop the whole "pre-mined" term. Using the terms continues to give value to mining and king of indicates that xrp is second best. It continues the idea that xrp has to fit into the paradigm of BTC, which it doesn't, so it makes it seem second best. I think they should figure out some different terminology. Perhaps the reference should have to do with the "allocation method" and how it differs from others. In fact, instead of indicating it is second best (pre-mined), the case can be made that it has a superior allocation method that allows the xrp ecosystem to grow more effectively than the way BTC grows. *ps I'm trying to remember who in Ripple I've heard use the term pre-mined. I heard Stephon Thomas (while he was at Ripple) use that term. I cant remember who else, so I'd be open to anyone stating that no one else does, or that it was a rare occurrence.
  2. This is similar but different from my previous question. Using the XRPL explorers, they only show transactions that did not produce an error. However, some transactions that are errors also take a fee. How can I see those types? Thanks!
  3. That's interesting. Bithomp produces a hash for the transaction. Why is that?
  4. If a transaction had the wrong sequence number, can I still find it on the ledger? The standard explorers do not show it, is there some other way to see the transaction even though the transaction had the wrong sequence number? If yes, is there a link I can plug in an address to see such transactions? Thanks
  5. You are not seeing this from his point of view. Do you want to be publicly known how much XRP you have in your wallet when XRP goes up? That is a bit of a safety concern. Don't know that this is the case but looking at that data does not mean dumped. We have no idea where it went from coinbase. He may have transferred it from coinbase to a private wallet. This way there isn't a public link from his first wallet to his new wallet. There is no way to know either way, or some other reason...

    Hi! I'm Bob

    With all due respect, if I were you, I'd see a psychiatrist and a good therapist. Dont know if your account is just messing around or is serious but if serious please take up the suggestion. No offense meant on my part. Good luck.

    Hi! I'm Bob

    This thread would never be sanctioned by Ripple! ☺ It varies greatly from their standard PR.

    Hi! I'm Bob

    No, no. Don't take it that way. Ripple is transparent. As BG once said (about a year ago or a little less) regarding if he is trying to get XRP on coinbase - and I am not quoting the exact words - "I am trying to fix an institutional problem, not an investor's problem." I am messing up the quote, but it was something like that. This statement of his made me feel comfortable, because, as an investor, I want them to focus on the institutional problem. I think ripple has been focused on their work instead of focusing on feeding us information. I think this is good. But as Bob mentioned earlier on in this thread, ripple can seem opaque to outsiders. Let's face it, we are getting a whole lot more info from this thread than is coming out of ripple. I am fine with this, but is ripple also?

    Hi! I'm Bob

    @BobWay, Thanks for all the clarifying information. Not sure if someone else asked you this because I'm still making my way through this whole thread. What is the reason that you are coming out with this information now? Is Ripple okay with it? It seems that you're still on good terms with them, so I would guess that you wouldn't do it against their wishes. However, giving out this amount of information seems to be against their philosophy (which of course I don't know. Just my feeling as an outsider). Thanks!
  13. Probably just a fan of jungle Inc . People are thinking that ripple made that memo. It could have been anyone. Anyone can release the escrow and add a memo. It's probably not a secret message.
