  1. Interesting excerpt from the Zerpbox (so many messages nowadays that one easily misses the interesting ones): The XRP ecosystem desperately needs high quality trusted wallets. JK involved in such a wallet would add a seal of trust that imho is very important. We´re spoiled with great news recently, but I think this is fantastic news.
  2. @nkarthi and @shimbalama in both cases where your accounts were emptied ( and ( this was done by a specific version of the RippleTrade client: rt1.1.32-bugfix-2-ge152297-dirty. This has happened before. See this post by @Warbler and further info in that thread: Note that this could be a coincidence, but it could also mean the same hacker (or group of hackers) is involved.
  3. If you haven't already, I recommend to read the post by @tommytrain here on current developments in India. Very interesting read. Great to see what technology can do for society/economy. Wonderful opportunity for Ripple. Btw, Ripple Mumbai office confirmed: "You will develop, scale and operationalize our Mumbai office..."
  4. You´re set to go..
  5. You´re set to go..
  7. Very interesting. Here´s a direct link to the original paper. TL;DR In this paper the authors present PathJoin, a novel protocol to perform atomic transactions in the Ripple network. They use use PathJoin and DiceMix, "the most efficient P2P mixing protocol existing in the literature", to build PathShuffle, a practical decentralized path mixing protocol for credit networks. Then they implemented PathShuffle and carried out a path mixing among five users in the currently deployed Ripple network, thereby actually demonstrating the practicality of PathShuffle to provide anonymous transactions Is any of the authors by any chance active on this forum?
  8. They will surely use it for domestic payments, thus not only international payments, as for domestic payments there is a also a clear incentive: ""Domestic payments are actually very expensive, it's 5x to 10x more expensive than in the US". Their new toy will solve this. POS payments are then only a logical next step if the user base is large enough. And the consortium seems to achieve this when all banks involved make their apps 'Ripple-powered'.
  9. I think this also is an important part of the story (shows their involvement (11.3%), a clear incentive)):
  10. Ripple (the company) bought the URL from a Grateful Dead fan
  11. They don't go live in March and April. Your information seems incorrect. The Japanese Bank Consortium / SBI Ripple Asia activities are interesting, but "the group has set a March 2017 deadline for delivery of a proof-of-concept ahead of a full commercial build". Thus proof of concept, nothing more. I've seen spring 2017 mentioned as a make or break moment on this forum before, based on the Japanese Bank Consortium / SBI Ripple Asia announcements, but I think the announcement was lost in translation in some cases (it is a proof of concept i.s.o. real use), and that its implications are overestimated. At least for the short term.
  12. Via Google translate: Response @nikb (thank you, clear answer):
  14. The thing is that in this case $0.35 is exactly the same as $0.008 (0.35USD.payroutes ~ 0.008USD.Gatehub). Well not exactly the same: I guess you can trust Gatehub to send you your USD, where in case of Payroutes this is not certain at all. Be aware.
  15. No bug. Explanation can be found here: TLDR: The issue is that Coinmarketcap includes a gateway that issues USD (in this case USD.payroutes) that is valued a lot lower than USD from gateways that deserve more trust (e.g. Gatehub, Bitstamp). One USD.gatehub = 40 USD.payroutes currently. If you include the Payroutes price in your average USD/XRP price, then you get a distorted view.
