  1. Yes I agree that the people over stepping that line and personally attacking, particular clear threats towards the family and offline communications should be locked up. I do not see any endorsements or encouragement from the community and clearly not from Ripple, IMO it is defiantly not Ripples place to engage in any way to discourage these people to stop, they are not responsible for my actions or anyway in which I personally work with the xrp ledger and communicate my opinions and have no place in telling me what to do. Frankly I hardly expect that these morons would pay any attention. Honestly though I personally get a dirty feeling with the response from the broader "community", not the above referenced trash but the people that are providing fairly negative responses to the research. It doesnt strike me as intelligent or elegant counter arguments.
  2. The harassment of this guy and his family is utterly disgusting, community should be hanging head in shame. It is defiantly not the first time and if only it would be the last.
  3. 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
  4. 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.
  5. 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/
  6. 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.
  7. @WorldXRP On the actual blog post it has XRP / XRP logo. https://blog.coinbase.com/coinbase-custody-is-exploring-a-range-of-new-assets-e700496844be
  8. Ahhhhh man the next 48 hours is going to be painful, why Ripple why
  9. 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.
  10. 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)
  11. If I was in Ripples position and had access to ..... I would be trying to buy R3 & Chainlink.
  12. 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.
  13. Kind of like Greg Kidd being a core investor in both Coinbase and Uphold.....
  14. 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.
