    Hodlezerper reacted to Bettergoham in The Clearinghouse - Competition or Opportunity?   
    It is an opportunity, the clearing house is a domestic settlement network.  The way I see it, each country will have their own RTGS system up and running by 2021ish with API capabilities.  This will allow for multiphop connectivity to ripplenet.

    Hodlezerper reacted to lucky in SystemD Desktop Wallet now available   
    So you want us to download your wallet software in binary form and load our existing XRP ledger wallet in?
    And trust that your software does not send out the secret key to you or install keyloggers?
    Everybody be warned!!! This project stinks from all angles!!!
    THERE ARE HIGH RISKS WHEN RUNNING THIS SOFTWARE!

    That site is just insane. Sorry, but it has to be said. P3teris, all of this is based upon your fundamental misunderstanding of how a trade works. As I have repeatedly said both on Twitter to you, the following four statements describe exactly the same process of operations carried out by xRapid:
    - Buy XRP for fiat; Sell XRP for fiat
    - Buy XRP for fiat; Buy fiat with XRP
    - Sell fiat for XRP; Sell XRP for fiat
    - Sell fiat for XRP; Buy fiat with XRP
    All four of those statements describe the process by which xRapid would acquire XRP on one exchange, send it to another, and the trade it to fiat to be withdrawn at the end to the destination bank account.
    As for the latter half of that page in which you appear to have written a piece of very imaginative fiction in which a personified xRapid appears to have had a mental breakdown and drunk a bottle of vodka taken a cocktail of pills.... I'm not sure to what benefit that is.

    Hodlezerper got a reaction from Tinyaccount in How does coil work?   
    I think the period of unlimited donations will be a short term gig while the system is being tested in beta. My opinion is that Coil will design templates for creators to provide ad-free experiences for particular types of content. 
    Regarding YouTube, it simply recognizes the YouTube channel and if that channel is monetized it will send payments to the payment pointer set up by the creator, and then they can send their XRP to wallets accordingly. 
    It roughs about to about half a cent per minute.

    I think it's conceivable that real estate agents see commission percentages decline and speed go up so that they can execute more transactions, or that we'll see agencies and companies start to adjust their business mode, but you'll always need a trusted source to connect buyers and sellers. Real Estate is also, for most people, a terrifying proposition that needs a lot of handholding with such large sums of money. 
     
    We may see commissions be put more on the buyer side as well, but I don't think agents will be going away any time soon. They'll just change how they currently work.

    I think you are basically on the right track.  Estate Agents are not going to disappear, but their business model will change to adapt to the new money saving technology as it arrives and becomes more user friendly.  To have 3% of your sale price deducted in estate agent fees and pay large lawyer fees, surveyor fess and tax makes selling or buying a property very expensive.  A lot of the expertise can be streamlined using technology and the work amalgamated into cost saving packages.

    Amongst biggest things yet in terms of potential - R3 + Corda (+ XRP as Corda's DA) together making play for the 200 trillion dollar property market.

    Hey all,
    I've been around this community for a little over a year, watching but never posting.  I recently felt like I had to "do something" with all of the information I had read and thought about.  I needed an outlet.  So, like any good millennial (although I am technically a bit too old for that designation), I started a Youtube Channel.  
    A few of my recent videos include:
     
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ieslw1GdcvA   ("Crypto Tribalism")
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qDTi-vBJCv8    ("IOV and Virtual Gaming")
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MrrSWTnaRgc   ("XRP Price Reaction to Legitimate News")
     
    Anyways, just thought I'd throw it out there.  Another option for XRP news and discussion.  
    Wish everyone here the best with your research and decisions....

    Maybe, maybe not? That's a tough one to calculate...
    What if a bank has massive reservers and the majority of their XRP isn't transacted with, thereby bringing the average up substantially?
