  1. Step 1. Have money. Step 2. Pay your bills. Pay off any outstanding loans you have. Put some money away for planned future expensives: new car, social events, holidays, funerals. Put some money away for a future unseen emergency. Put money into your retirement scheme. Put money into a savings account. Once you've done all of this, you're ready to move onto step 3. Step 3. Buy XRP, Bonus step: Step 4. If you followed all the above steps you can now kick back and relax and not eternally fret & worry about your future. The alternative is to come on this board wailing and gnashing your teeth every time you wake up and realise you don't have a Lambo.
  2. Ripple already got a humungous fine from FinCEN in the early days for selling 'currency' without KYC. If they get fined by SEC as well does they mean they get the money back from FinCEN? Anyway, sounds like an America problem, the rest of the world doesn't seem to have these issues and will be the leaders in this technology space.
  3. ^ Whatsapp is owned by fakebook, so can't see them willingly doing that unless they see themselves falling behind and bite the bullet.
  4. I used Go-jek recently in Indo. Man, you could stay at home all day and run your entire life using that app. Sure you can do that now. But you'd have to go to one website to do your banking, another to pay for your internet, another for your power, another to book a ride, another to deliver food, another to top-up your phone, another to manage your reward points at retailers. One stop shop for everything. It would make sense for them to add an FX option in there.
  5. ^ But you didn't even ask if I was subject to EU law, or US law, or International law, or maybe even FakeBook Law (ignore all laws)
  6. You have the permissions given to you by law to invade my privacy rights. I expect from here you're gonna be doing a metric shedload of paperwork.
  7. We seemed to have picked up a few 'barometers' in 2017. They cheer and boast on the upswings, then wail and gnash their teeth when the pressure is on. It was that way even way back when Jed came on the (previous) forum to announce he was dumping. It's just that there weren't so many of us back in those days so it was easier to ignore. The more things (Ripple/XRP) change, the more they (Sentiment slaves) stay the same.
  8. ^ KInda holding out hope they're like the Marvel Hydra organisation and one day they're just gonna be like: Hydra/Ripple: "SURPRISE MOFO!!!" Cap USA/ Swift: "OMFG!!! Hydra/Ripple: "All your base pair are belong to us! Mwahahahahahahahahahaha!!!11"
  9. I tend to open my browser and leave it open all day on certain tabs. Content authors are gonna make a fortune outta me if I subscribe.
  10. I own more than one. Maybe even two. How much is the wallet reserve again?
  11. ^ I keep blocking 'em and they keep coming back under different names.
  12. I think a long, tangly mess is the perfect haircut for a cryptographer. It screams: "I'm too busy sorting, arranging and straightening out more important things for the good of humanity to have time to think about my hair."
  13. I'd much rather the energy was used on the other useless things. PoW doesn't need to exist when there are better alternatives. Yes 10,000 inch TVs and 909090Ti gpx cards don't need to exist when there are alternatives like playing Bridge or Scrabble, but are they better alternatives?
  14. BoE, in their recent press statements about crypto & DLT have made it clear that climate change and sustainability are their top priorities for emerging fintech. They don't go as far as naming names but if you read between the lines you can see they are referring to BT4C (bitCentralizedChineseCoalCoin). I think IMF may have been dropping similar hints.
