  1. but i dont think they are all MMs. OTC is also peer to peer buying/selling.
  2. yes, you have to reach teddybear on twitter. he goes by dabiggapicta. i go by fourthjohnxrp
  3. I don't think we have much to worry about. Someone here once mentioned the process banks must go through to approve technology. It sounds to me stellar is trying to ride IBMs contacts, but it doesn't work that way. Ripple has been going after banks for a while now. Stellar seems to me they are now trying to jump in because of Ripples success. I don't think they are a threat and if so, Ripple is interoperable.
  4. By the way, per Teddy's request, I have corrected concurrence to competition in the first sentence.
  5. nah, IBM works with many companies. There will be a winner though.
  6. mKe sure u follow us on twitter. i dont share here much anymore.
  7. My friend Teddybear is a banker in Switzerland (he's been banned here on xrpchat). He sent me this information and wanted me to share it on here and on Twitter. You can follow him on Twitter here: https://twitter.com/dabiggapicta You can also give me a follow here: https://twitter.com/fourthjohnxrp The Swiss National Bank is in talks with Ripple and gave a presentation at SHAW School of Management and Law in Zurich. I have atttached the the primary source, as well as Teddybear's comments and his translation of what the presenter stated. "I hope my thoughts have shown that Cryptocurrencies are not a real competition to traditional currencies. However, the underlying DLT has potential. This is especially valid in complex areas like Securities Processing and crossborder payments. But, the techonlogy needs to proove itself first. DLT based solutions do not only have to be efficient, but also may not pose a systematic risk to the infrastructure of financial markets. In the systematically important cashless payment transactions between banks, the SNB plays an active role, by providing a reliable basis (a fundament). Future DLT-based systems will, in one form or another, be connected with this reliable fundament. In contrast, in the cashless Retail-payments sector, private actors are better positioned, to satisfy customer needs. This splitting of roles between the Central bank, as bank-of-banks, and commercial (retail) banks as interface to the customer has proven itself over the years. *If the cashless payments are efficient and innovative, there is no need for digatal central bank money.* It is important to stay flexible. Our existing system provides stability to the financial system and enables simoultaneously enough flexibility. This is valid for both the infrastructure of financial markets and this two-layer financial system. We should take care of this stability and at the same time be open for new developments." I will add that Ripple has been saying this all along. There will be many blockchains, and Ripple is positioning itself to be interoperable with them all. Even Microsoft said Ripple/XRP was essential in that underlying everything is the need for payments. Grasping this will show you how big your stash of XRP can and will become. Remember, what we are looking for is a revolution. It has started, and we are waiting for the first shot- to be heard around the world. Don't take my word, trust people like Yoshitaka Kitao of SBI, Brad Garlinghouse, Joel Katz, and many others that see the coming revolution.
  8. sounds like he has taken some profits. doesnt sound like he dumped all.
  9. dumped and selling a portion are two different things. people have the right to do what they want with their holdings.
