  1. Went with the white design and added particle animations to the back to make it more interesting. https://www.theworldexchange.net/ Will next work on folding the user controls/options into a swipe menu for mobile and adding a QR code for sending/receiving.
  2. Is this accurate? It seems like both Gatehub and Bitstamp went from having millions of USD IOUs to billions since Jun.21. https://data.ripple.com/v2/capitalization/USD+rhub8VRN55s94qWKDv6jmDy1pUykJzF3wq?limit=20&descending=true https://data.ripple.com/v2/capitalization/USD+rvYAfWj5gh67oV6fW32ZzP3Aw4Eubs59B?limit=20&descending=true
  3. It seems like Ripple should have been here (if it's not behind the scenes). This is used by consumers but transfers between banks. For example, you can use Zelle to send cash instantly to someone with a different bank account or even different bank (Wells Fargo -> Bank of America). That sounds like the whole point of Ripple to me (different banks, same network). Is there more information on who Zelle is or what their tech is based on? I haven't been able to find much.
  4. Not sure what you're referring to. Any transaction on xrpcharts shows the issuer (symbol.issuer): https://xrpcharts.ripple.com/#/transactions/2118C1372A395A0DC5FCB1585EC373C70BB77C5884B03592E2828FF3374129C2
  5. You can buy anything off the orderbooks without trustlines. It's only sending an IOU that requires trust. So the part to watch out for here is if someone tells you to trade an IOU (say USD) by some issuer and tries to give you a link or address for the wrong issuer without you noticing. For example, this is for Bitstamp's actual USD IOU: https://www.theworldexchange.net/?symbol1=XRP&qty1=1&symbol2=USD.rvYAfWj5gh67oV6fW32ZzP3Aw4Eubs59B&price=1 But unless you memorized Bitstamp's Ripple address (or the site recognizes it for you), you might not notice if it gets changed: https://www.theworldexchange.net/?symbol1=XRP&qty1=1&symbol2=USD.rMwjYedjc7qqtKYVLiAccJSmCwih4LnE2q&price=1
  6. You don't need a trustline to buy or sell though, so that's something to keep in mind.
  7. Good to know thanks - I'll try that next.
  8. I haven't had time to revisit this.
  9. It's optional - like a Wire Memo. You can leave it blank. The situation you'd ask someone to include a destination tag (Bitstamp) is so that you know what the funds are for or who to allocate to if you're managing other people's money.
  10. Someone posted a temporary fix for this. Of course, RL has to update RippleCharts itself, but anyone else using RippleLib can use this to avoid their site freezing for iphone users:
  11. A couple people posted a temporary fix here: https://github.com/ripple/ripple-lib/issues/762#issuecomment-311867764 It turns out all it takes to fix the issue is to update the dependency to the newest version of bignumbers.js (but you have to do it for both ripplelib and 2 other ripple libraries it depends on). Thanks to Julyyq for figuring it out and sharing a recompiled version, but hopefully Ripple Labs gets a chance to update the main branch soon.
  12. Rialto is using ETH for issuing, not Ripple. Their business just trades/arbitrages on Ripple's ledger.
  13. Agreed, had the same thoughts. It's a bit of a hack that you have to explain and people then have to trust you on (unless you expect them to run their own Ripple code), so to me you might as well run with the ICO being uncapped.
  14. Yes I see that, but is there a way for anyone else to verify that the key is actually thrown away?
  15. Maybe I'm misunderstanding the method you're proposing, but we'd basically have to trust that the issuer actually threw away the private key here no? It's a workaround, but I think it'd be hard to convince everyone that you didn't save the key somewhere. My working assumption for now is that IOUs on Ripple would basically be uncapped until Ripple adds a functionality to lock the amount. An ICO that requires limited supply probably wouldn't make sense here. The use cases I see for tokens on Ripple would be more for things like stock/equity where supply can increase/decrease, and the market would price accordingly.
