    Ripple IS working with the U.N. - Proof?

    India already has very good real time payment infrastructure. Can send transactions via whatsapp that clear into the receivers bank account in seconds. Its amazing

    massive money moved on XRP ledger...

    When one of the frequent claims of centralisation is that Ripple owns the majority of XRP and this is a high risk for any crypto control / centralized claim. Clarification and transparency on XRP movements of this size is important. Do they have to no, is it in the best interest of the network IMO yes.
  3. Love to know how much of that 7 billion xrp was donated to charity in accordance with the 2015 statements from Ripple........ https://forum.ripple.com/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=9900 https://www.ccn.com/ripple-ceo-chris-larsen-to-donate-7-billion-xrp-to-the-underbanked/

    Coinbase Custody considering XRP

    So they don't get accused of insider trading, after the BCH fiasco it is a good policy. It also allows a very small team of decision makers to be aware of the strategy before the wider company, making it much easier to pinpoint insider trading.

    President Bill Clinton Keynotes Swell 2018

    Ouch, its no real feat having a former president speak that charges 300k per event, add to that all the scandals that followed him around and the negative publicity as a result of this, I think they could have got someone allot better for that price tag, at least someone in the finance / banking / payments some sort of innovative field.

    Tushar Jain w/ CNBC Crpto Trader

    Some valid points that are worth listening to, some are not very valid. I understand people getting upset when someone has problems with their investment, but you cant have it both ways, super happy when well known investors publicly compliment their investment (Arlington). I see no issues about criticising investments they hold the opposite position in, it is the same as these well known investors pumping projects they have holdings in (this applies to non crypto too)
  9. If I was in Ripples position and had access to ..... I would be trying to buy R3 & Chainlink.
  10. Sorry should have stated capital not liquidity your correct, my main point being with the value they have parked around the countries they operate in can easily be deployed.

    Coinbase considering everything but XRP

    Kind of like Greg Kidd being a core investor in both Coinbase and Uphold.....
  12. It is still very early in the product life cycle and in my experience working on new payment products I dont expect any decent versions of the product being live prior to years end, especially when the target audience is enterprise not consumers. The comments regarding WU - I don't really see how these are not transferable to Moneygram. Maybe even more concerning, Moneygram is still in a very average position, after the failed take over from Ant Financial they are trying to reinvent them self and some how find a way to become profitable (good old days profitable). IMO Moneygram is still fighting for their life and is still very exposed to take over unless they can overcome this. Non financial players recognise the payments ecosystem as an "enabler" and not a profit driving business, they are following this up by quickly moving into the space and providing payment services (often for close to free) to get more wallet penetration and ultimately sell more products from the profitable side of the business. I personally do not know if in 5 years from now it will even be possible to charge for the service of transferring funds, when industry players such as Apple / Facebook / Google ect can easily deploy the -capital- (edited from: liquidity) they hold from business operations to facilitate this value transfer. I am bullish on XRP but neutral / curious on Xrapid and will wait to see what the end product actually looks like / cost savings it provides.

    Coinbase considering everything but XRP

    Most people on this forum and within the community have already purchased XRP or will know how to purchase XRP. Which makes me believe the only reason for them wanting xrp added is for the "Coinbase effect" on price, going back to Litecoin / BCH listing these announcements would see 100% + growth, now I think a combination of the "Coinbase effect" wearing off and the fact that we are in a bear market only leads to a 12 hour rise of 10-25% kind of makes the the whole endeavour pointless. edit- Add to this that the market was clearly manipulated in the case of BCH - Yes it will open the market up to more newbie retail investors, but they are the ones that if they get burnt we see the court cases pile up. If you cannot navigate the markets / exchanges (which I encourage everyone considering purchasing to try to do) then you should invest in something that you understand. Bottom point: Who Cares, you are probably invested to try get rich and 25% wont do that, if not stick to what you do in the physical world and purchase your goods from a company that provides you the services you expect. IMO disregarding XLM & ADA - Decent choices, but I already know how to buy coins that I am interested and would not do so based on Coinbase listing and Coinbase fees suck.

    Gladly, Looks like a couple of donations from Ripple executives to Brian Armstrong "Give Crypto" project does not get XRP listed. If XRP was announced, this surely would have been attribute to the above (announced over the last month or so), would not have been a good look for either company.
