  1. It includes this prediction from Ripple managing director Danny Aranda https://s3-eu-west-1.amazonaws.com/bell-pottinger/fintech/fintech_2017_trends.pdf?utm_content=bufferd8705&utm_medium=social&utm_source=twitter.com&utm_campaign=buffer
  2. Thanks for the alert. Already voted.
  3. There is a difference between "never happen" and "that's a long way to go". As Bill Gates once said: "People tend to overestimate the amount of change that can happen in the next 2 years and underestimate the amount of change that can happen in the next 10 year".
  4. What do "consumers" do with fiat currency, travel miles, credit card award points, precious metals, etc? They are all different forms of VALUE. Value can change from one form to another. Cryptocurrency (and hopefully XRP eventually) can become another form of accepted value consumers become conditioned to be familiar with.
  5. Edit: @JoelKatz, @Vinnie, @nikb Please relay this suggestion to Ripple Inc. management. Such a foundation:: 1. Must start with a significant balance of XRP (donated by Ripple Inc.). 2. It must develop and nurture an independent developer community using Ripple eco-system (specifically around RCL) to come up with software tools such as cold wallets, mobile apps, reward programs, PayPal like functionalities...etc. 3. Must have a clear strategy as to how to promote XRP to the consumer facing applications and websites (Amazon, Walmart, Target,...etc.). 4. Such Consumer facing strategy must leverage and align with all the progress Ripple is making with banks & FIs. Thank you
  6. Why do you guys think it is a scam? I'd like to hear objective reasoning and analysis. We have to make sure we are not all drunk with the Ripple Kool-Aid.
  7. Hey all, I wanted to get everyone's opinion on Cosmos, another "Internet of Blockchains" concept and protocol being developed as we speak. They aim to connect different blockchains so that digital tokens can be transferred from one platform to another seamlessly and efficiently. The system has a native staking token called "Atoms". They are planning to launch a pre-sale event for "Atoms". Is this something that has the potential to compete with the Interledger protocol? @JoelKatz, @mDuo13, @nikb, any thoughts on this? https://cosmos.network/
  8. Interesting. I wonder what this means for Fidor's partnership with Ripple. This article from 2014 is still on Ripple's site. Not sure if it will be amended or taken out. https://ripple.com/ripple_press/ripple-labs-announces-fidor-bank-ag-as-first-bank-to-use-the-ripple-protocol/
  9. LOL...No, I just happened to stumble on Tech Republic from my LinkedIn feed page, then went to their website and saw the video. Just lucky I guess
  10. Mods, please delete duplicate. Not sure how this happened.
  11. "In 2016, a number of banks are banding together to create a global blockchain payments network using Ripple's distributed ledger tech." http://www.techrepublic.com/article/video-the-top-5-things-to-know-about-the-blockchain/?linkId=32334774

  13. @Nicolas Thanks for the clarification you provided. You are correct, we are all here rooting for Ripple's success both in its technology (RCL, ILP, Ripple Connect, Ripple Stream...etc.), and in its digital native asset (XRP). A question: Are U.S. residents (such as myself) able to use Flash FX service to send money globally? Or is it currently limited to Australian residents?
  14. Excellent! Ripple is upping their game, both from a marketing and technology service standpoints.
  15. I'll try to set it up this weekend. If I get stuck somewhere, I'll PM you. Thanks!
