  1. @Duke67 There is also a link between Microsoft's Azure and Ripple. See below. https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/blog/azure-blockchain-as-a-service-update/
  2. @cmbartley, Very happy I got into FCT in a significant way when the price was $2.70. It is now at $3.75. I'm thinking we will see $5 this year.
  3. It seems like March will be an interesting month for BTC, not just for XRP. https://www.wsj.com/articles/irrational-exuberance-for-bitcoin-etfs-1486350601
  4. I found this interview interesting for two reasons. First, Caitlin's journey into the world of blockchain resembles, at a high level, many of our own journey in this space. Second, and more importantly, she mentions something we all as Ripple fans, intuitively can agree with, and that is if one of the big three central banks (The U.S., the U.K., or the Japanese Central bank) adopt a specific blockchain currency, then all the intermediary banks that have to deal with them will follow and that will in turn cause multi national corporations to switch immediately to that currency. It is such a tantalizing future to contemplate....I hope the horse we are betting on wins.
  5. CEO Brad Garlinghouse talks about recent tech giant moves into payments, and what it means for banks https://www.bloomberg.com/news/videos/2017-01-27/will-tech-titans-enter-payment-industry
  6. I think this thread has out lived its useful life. @tomxcs or other Moderators, I suggest we lock this thread and move on to more productive discussions.
  7. The good old "Love it or leave it" argument, which was said many times on this forum by many people in many different ways. This attitude will turn this forum into an eco-chamber of Ripple fanboys, the Ripple version of Bitcoin fanatics. and will result ultimately in a loss of all credibility on this forum. If this ever happens, you will get your wish and "I will get off the ride". Dissenting viewpoints (aka "negative energy") can be a good thing and a healthy sign of a vibrant debate.

  9. I have significant positions in XRP, FCT, and ETH. I'm very bullish on ETH and FCT. For XRP, this year is pivotal in maintaining my position. I intend to reevaluate my outlook on XRP some time this year.
  10. We all knew that Siam Commercial Bank was a partner of Ripple Inc. I didn't know they were also an investor. Saw this post on LinkedIn today and thought it was interesting.

  12. Kris Hansen is a senior principal at SAP, focused on financial services at the global software player. In his role on the value engineering team, he identifies ways that digital approaches can be used to find interesting opportunities to create disruptive business value. A self proclaimed “recovering” chief architect of a bank, he brings an interesting perspective on changing business models and technology platforms in financial services, including Ripple
  13. @Byyo, you beat me to it. Thanks! It's a very busy day at work. @PunishmentOfLuxury, you got your answer.
