  1. Exactly, when the market crashed even stock portfolios that were diversified were affected, not because they were intertwined with the housing market, but because most major companies had exposure to the same banks. So, they weren't very diversified after all, because most of them had exposure to the same risk. Getting exposure to different asset classes is why I looked into crypto in the first place, but after a while I figured out that crypto in general has more potential than I would have ever thought. There will be exciting times ahead.
  2. Ripple - Singapore, Bahrain, & the UAE

    I found a picture of what this looked like as a work in progress.. . @mars75 Great work by the way!
  3. http://time.com/money/4937436/apple-ios11-apple-pay/?utm_campaign=money&utm_source=twitter.com&utm_medium=social&xid=frommoney_soc_socialflow_twitter_money Looks like Apple Pay is rolling out an upgrade, too..
  4. My Thoughts on the upcoming conference

    I agree, I imagine this whole endeavor is pretty expensive, and they aren't going to waste their opportunity. The difference between this and previous conferences, is that this is their conference, and I'd like to remind everyone that we don't even know what's going on, on the last day yet. This will be the biggest, most hyped event that they have done thus far.
  5. Did you ever use Windows 2000, Vista, 8? Microsoft has rushed out almost every other operating system they have ever put out...
  6. Every time this is threatened, it pushes them to look for an alternative. China doesn't want to be pushed around.
  7. For the last three months, we have had a lot of good news/ snow falling on our investment/ mountain, and right now we are just waiting for something to set off the avalanche. It seems like price always lags good news with XRP, but catches up once it's on the move.
  8. Loving the community

    Welcome to what has to be the most patient community in crypto.
  9. Banks make money, and governments regulate. Ripple understands this, and that's why I'm here.
  10. Agenda SWELLbyRipple is out

    True, I was just thinking it seemed early, even taking that into consideration. It must've just been early in the morning when they announced it.
  11. Agenda SWELLbyRipple is out

    I was wondering the same thing..
  12. I think Ripple always wants the price to increase, and I can't imagine either want a lawsuit. I'm not sure how the market will react, if it will at all, at least for the time being. If Ripple fails to wow everyone before the end of the year, then I think people will be looking for other opportunities regardless. Also, this won't be resolved any time soon, and I think the biggest impact will probably be felt once it is. Even if R3 won they wouldn't be able to just dump them all at once anyway. Most likely, it would take them years to unwind that big of a position given all the red tape they'd be wrapped up in.
  13. Story is a few days old now, and pretty much nothing has happened yet, not that it couldn't in the future.
  14. Ripple ~Swell ~~ Tsunami

    I think an Apple + Ripple integration would be a great way to subtly strong arm banks into taking Ripple more seriously, not only is Apple huge, but they are also very technologically progressive. With that type of alliance, Ripple's sales team could say something like, "Yeah so did you hear about Apple getting on board, these guys aren't waiting around, they're going to make something happen." I still doubt that will be the news, but I do think it would be a great strategic step.
  15. The public used to be really into, pet rocks, no money down ARMs, snuggies, and Crocs too, so don't put too much stock in the majority opinion...
