  1. I think the issue here is that there's nothing anyone can say that would change your mind, truth or otherwise. Sometimes this is called "cult behavior" or "brainwashing" Also don't forget that many folks on this forum have been involved with XRP longer than BG.
  2. I may be framing this incorrectly, but what sort of traffic volume is associated with those payments? (perhaps there's a better measurement?)
  3. This doesn't make sense - wouldn't you just need to expect XRP to move higher than BTC? If BTC moves 10x and XRP does 12x, that's a win.
  4. This is like saying the US is only 4% of the worlds population, why should they even matter? While in theory it sounds right, it's not true in reality. US remittances are critical.
  5. Thanks for sharing. I've heard that the lawsuit is focused on Ripple more than XRP and this is articulated quite well. Interesting thought exercise as to what would transpire if Ripple is *permanently* not allowed to release XRP. I'm becoming more bullish on XRP without Ripple. There may be a period of pain while other participants and developers pick up to (hopefully) build utility but a truly decentralized XRP has always been the ultimate goal, right?
  6. The better measurement is $ settled, not # transactions handled I can move $2B across the world and settle in a few minutes. Can I do this with Visa?
  7. BREAKING: Some hodlers are selling because new information has been presented. Crazy, I know.
  8. Where are you seeing this? Here is what I can see from the @grayscale twitter account: XRP AUM Dec 2 - $21.9M Dec 11 - $20.6M Dec 22 - $18.6M Dec 29 - $8.6M
  9. Appreciate your insights and level-headedness throughout this thread
  10. It's very common that a CEO who builds a young startup isn't the same CEO best suited for a mature startup. Probably a year or so late replacing BG, imo
  11. 9 hours later and you've nailed 2 out of 4 - not shocked if you go 4 for 4
  12. I'd be more concerned that you are being targeted than the actual phishing attempt. Assume whatever contact info they have will be disseminated with more attempted attacks likely
  13. My understanding is that the network is driven by participation. Those that don't participate and merely hold will see their value decrease due to inflation (which flows to those who do participate)
  14. I just used xumm and it's crazy simple https://coil.com/p/wietse/Prepare-for-claiming-your-Spark-token-Flare-Networks-a-tool-for-XUMM-XRPToolkit/NkXJQUqpi I control my own account and it was super easy to: add my xrp account, follow steps provided to add a Flare pointer to my ETH addy, remove my account from xumm to go back in cold storage (definitely go back to xumm if I have a need to transact) @Wietse and group do a wonderful job focusing on UX - highly recommend.
  15. I agree. Brad is wonderful and has done tremendous work building Ripple to where it is but perhaps its time to hand the baton off These two thoughts seem to counter each other. I understand the tech is functional and great but if it was mind blowingly awesome then liquidity would pour in based on the tech alone. This may be the case. It is concerning that MGI and others have reversed course on XRP usage. Hoping it's the regulatory situation but doesn't sit well with me.
  16. The only thing holding XRP back is that Ripple owns a majority of XRP. The sooner this can be remedied the better.
  17. I side with @Dario_o here - I follow XRP loosely and this is how I found out about SWELL this year..
  18. There are sites like equityzen that provide a secondary market for pre-IPO employee shares of private companies. Of course, dependent on whether employees are willing to sell their shares.
  19. "Avoiding the behavioural traits of people who consistently lose in the markets should be everyone's first goal ie. survival. Don't become a #lossaholic" Thanks for sharing
  20. This article could be better had it linked to the source it is citing
  21. Your point is that XRP has drastically fallen from ATH and as such, is a bad investment My point is that every asset has fallen >50% from ATH so singling out XRP while ignoring the overall health of the market holds little merit. I agree that XRP price has fallen further than most since ATH. I also agree that XRP appreciated more than most while attaining ATH
