  1. If it turns out to be Amazon, please do show us the transaction that you dumped on Friday..
  2. That item is about r3 is now hosting their stuff at amazon datacentres, like many.. many out there. That has nothing to do with a partnership to use R3's functionality by Amazon. So actually that Coindesk item is not really news.. The escrow was, which Coindesk 'forgot' to mention. If a Amazon-Ripple partnership turns out to be the case, it's could be significant.. and therefor worth exploring.. call it hyping if you want.. just don't dehype it with fud.
  3. In another thread @kanaas mentioned this article: https://www.pymnts.com/amazon/2017/hyperwallet-international-payments-for-amazon-australia-ecommerce-marketplace/ This could be the missing Amazon link if you ask me.. Could get kind a big if it turns out to be Amazon
  4. Nikkei.com: 37 banks incl. SMBC and Resona trialling Ripple

    While the world keeps on hyping on manipulated crypto values, Ripple just keeps on building the actual use case. Love that focus, the values will come and more importantly, stay up so banks can buy significant amounts of XRP without a fear that it will drop, and just keep it to use it. If I was a bank, I would buy a truckload before the tipping point where all banks will step in.
  5. It would be better if it was called decentre 😜
  6. That is one well put view, @goodfellashxm +10 Edit: and means Ripple is so powerfull that even whales don't dare to touch them.. quite a compliment and the breakthrough based on real adoption is just a matter of time..
  7. As much as I would love such an ideal, that is a way too naive statement comming from you.. Whales centrally plan and controll Bitcoin and all other top30 coins out there atm. And not to mention large mining pools, the bitcoin core dev group and of course Vitalik B. I am very interested in the outcomes of your analysis project though, and I mean that. It's ambitious but the answers will be in the data somewhere, and could in theory unmask all of the ones mentioned above.
  8. Swift GPI second phase

    A friend of mine worked at Swift yet left again after 6 months because of the lack of innovation moving forward.
  9. Amex and Blockchain Platform Ripple Partner Up

    Don't let the veterans pull you down😉.. it's actually a very nice article.. Indeed being addicts we might already be aware of the items, but so many out there do not have a clue about Ripple's potential . We need many more of these articles untill the mass starts to realize.. 🤘 Altough more transparancy on that would be nice, I think we would be surprised.. but either way, it still would be by far closer to their use case than any other coin out there.
  10. SBI - Huobi partnership

  11. Could be quite significant actually.. if JPMC is resetting their beacons on crypto, it shows that Ripple is the place to go to and help you out, both on the technical and regulational level. Ripples long term roadmap will lead to nice grounds. And is much closer than many out there seem to realize. I'm waiting for it with zero stress.. 😉
  12. @Hodor, Ripple is calling for you..! And if you're not into it fulltime, share the seat with @TplusZero or @TiffanyHayden 😉 https://ripple.com/company/careers/all-jobs/#writer-and-social-marketer
  13. Earlier today I read this one, but seems more focussed specifically on bitcoin derivatives: https://www.coindesk.com/report-bitcoin-derivatives-banned-south-korean-government/ And just now this one, while it seems to be short and also based on some local translater news: https://cointelegraph.com/news/south-korea-preparing-full-crypto-exchange-ban-local-press My assesment is that Governments like South Korea, as also others, are seeking ways to regulate these new markets somehow.. Ripple, having a clear long term strategy, saw that one comming a long time ago, and the reason why they actively reach out to Central Banks and other regulators. They even have a jobs open for that at the moment (see legal&compliance). https://ripple.com/company/careers/all-jobs/
  14. Made this for an earlier discussion on this 😉
