  1. the glaring issue I see is that big banks are still accountable to do KYC/AML - if there's a world where banks are circumvented, this becomes a huge problem.
  2. why would one assume this? I think it's pretty clear that the will be injecting XRP into the market for years to come
  3. Are you saying in ~5 years when R3 has liquidated all of their XRP there won't be a digital asset that may have superior qualities to XRP?
  4. While I do think this is great news in the short term (2-5 yrs), I'm concerned with this long term (5-10yrs). R3 said something along the lines that they will "start with XRP" to settle transactions using Corda. It's known that Corda has capabilities to utilize any asset. I'm worried that they would use XRP for as long as they are invested in (and hold) XRP. Still doesn't feel right that SWIFT partnered with R3/Corda over Ripple. This is pretty huge, imo.
  5. How does R3 seemingly make better progress than Ripple? They seem like the superior tech company Corda news in the last 4-5mo seems far more significant than anything Ripple has announced in the last year.
  6. I found this interesting: "..and the decentralized network infrastructure provider SIA" is this referencing the same SIA that's a DFS? If so, I think that's great because XRP is far better designed than SIA for this application. Since this was before the R3/Ripple settlement, perhaps R3 was trying their best to use another DA in place of XRP.
  7. In just a couple months, brad will have been CEO for 4 years.. I would say this has evolved into a 5-10 year plan
  8. 1- is this chart from 2011? the "E" appended to each year makes me assume "Estimated" 2- i realize this may not be the point that you intended, but this chart shows that internet devices have iterated and left the originating tech in the dust. PC = gen1 crypto, Smartphones=gen2, tablets=gen3 - to me this seems to prove that our current digital asset state will soon be outdated. (Smartphones taking over PCs)
  9. truth. perhaps hype does indeed drive markets more than utility?
  10. my assumption (possibly incorrect) is that the only way XRP are added to the "circulating supply" number by CMC is from escrow release. this doesn't align with the actual escrow release numbers and may seem fishy but I personally question CMC's number to begin with. @jbjnr has done an amazing job analyzing the escrow release and supply numbers. perhaps he has more insight on what the ~1B bump from Oct is and whether it aligns with what he's tracked?
  11. Ripple has made significant progress over the last couple years to relinquish control (decentralizing) of the network validators. Currently, Ripple operates 7% of the validators on the network. Is the long term plan to operate 0% of validators on the network?
  12. I disagree. Wiki is an amazing source of info, arguably none better. It's so detailed that often times information is misunderstood by the reader. statement in question: The bank traces its origins to the British Bank of the Middle East which was acquired by HSBC in 1959. In response to restrictions on foreign ownership of banks in Saudi Arabia, SABB was created in 1978 to manage HSBC branches and assets in the country.
  13. I'm not saying you need to own their specific behavior. I am saying that with participation also brings a small piece of responsible for community actions. It could be as simple as intelligently standing up to others in the community who voice malicious intent/opinions. Your views and actions within a community help dictate direction
  14. great post - this is the most glaring rebuttal and seems to make Messari's argument negatively biased toward XRP
  15. I agree 100 that this person is purely responsible. However, it is our inherent responsibility as part of the community to help shape the way in which misinformation is refuted. Far too many folks in the twitter xrpcomm are immature and emotional - constantly attacking people personally rather than intelligently disputing the issues.
  16. According to Jake, the shutdown can't affect the decision: "the SEC doesn't have the power to extend the 240-day deadline. The statute absolutely prohibits any further delays. By law, that means if the SEC fails to make a decision by the February 27 deadline, the ETF will be automatically approved." https://twitter.com/jchervinsky/status/1086266220381421569
  17. feels like a video discussion would serve both parties best in hashing this out however, this takes into the account that both parties are open to their views changing based on newly provided facts @P3T3RIS is there anything that can be said that would change your view? whether thats by people here or Ripple folks
  18. Go Ryan! love the firm and confident stance. Is there a link with the full video? I'd love to hear the rest of the convo/rebuttals
  19. did not mean offense, was saying that markets are irrational and people tend to overlook this starting point. cheers.
  20. The first thing you should understand is that all markets are irrational.
