    Zerpening 3: HODL My Zerps

    When I bought last year I knew it was a risk so was careful to not overextend. The thing is STILL a risk, but I think much less of one. But still risky. American Express, 100 banks, Satandee, WU Moneygram, Saudi Central Bank, Arlington, ILP everywhere, media recognition, IMF friendly attitude,..... It's all made it less likely to fail I think. All happened after I invested. Having said that.... It definitely is still a risk, so I do not envy you your choices. I hope whatever choices you make work out well for you, and would never give you financial advice, but I do think there may be some wriggle room between your absolute yes or no choices. If you can work out some portion that you would hate to loose but wouldn't ruin your plans then maybe consider that smaller compromise option. Just offering a thought.... it's not advice.

    The one and only test is a BTC fall..... We used to go nowhere when it rose and stuck to it like crap on a blanket when it fell. So when it falls but we don't while nothing much is happening THEN I will think we have decoupled. It won't really happen till XRP is in solid usage and everyone in all media know Ripple well.... and the bloody bot programmers (I know you are here.... ) stop pricing the relationships in BTC. Soon(TM).

    I don't think you need a larger stack to do that. The beauty of crypto trades is unlike shares you can do it in tiny amounts since the costs aren't fixed, they are percentage based. So my plan to sell little pieces ( say 3%) at various points on the way up works with small stacks just as good as if I had a large one. I think doing that starting at say 20 or higher means I can retrieve initial investment and a small profit to keep wife happy without having lost much of my Zerp pile. After all... Each little Zerp has a name and a special spot in my wallet. I don't want to loose any...

    Aw crap. I hate it when my sarcasm detector is broke and the warning light for low understanding doesn't come up in my HUD. Time for a complete reformat and re-reinstall. Luckily I will have time for doing it soon when XRP moons and I retire.....

    How do you know they have mental problems? They might be right and tinfoil on your head stops the brainwashing EMF and it's the only way to think straight.... So their name is therefore a badge of honour and sanity. Gotta go now... I hear them coming for me....
  7. I think you are largely correct with the addition that another portion is from certain folk only being able to buy XRP via BTC. That's probably no longer true but the hangover remains. So the thing that will undo this coupling is media attention. Ripples had a lot in various niche circles, but not in the mainstream. That's soon gonna change. SBI and Santander and WU etc will bring more attention to XRP. More exchange options, and even things like ToastWallet getting a buy option, will dramatically change the paths in to XRP, and that will finally be the decoupling. I can't wait..... it will be great.

    I am sorry but I can't agree with this idea. I love your posts but beg to disagree on this one. As much as I believe we are a great resource here for retail investors, I personally don't believe our shenanigans have any effect on price. The price is much more dependent on media and trader sentiment, Ripple announcements and ultimately real world usage. I suppose it's possible we contribute a tiny tiny percentage of sentiment, but our mood here is essentially permanently set to BUY, so movement can't logically be attributed to us. Else it would never go down. Its just the pendant in me that makes me say the above. On a more positive note I am delighted to see some real gains here against both fiat and BTC. Great stuff. Loving it!

    Nah not at all. If we think we have overstepped or miss-stepped and then apologise I reckon it shows we are not a bunch of jerks. Doesn’t matter how it’s taken... More power to you my friend. Carry on Zerpening.

    That dude is fricken awesome! So much respect. I dream of one day having an idea half as good.... and the retirement time to play with it... Wonder what I could make as a post-Zerpening project?

    So I really like your posts and they hold a lot of valuable trading knowledge.... they are very informative and positive, thanks. (Negative is fine with me btw... Reality is always best) But I had not realised you were in red on your Zerps so I'm just posting to say Respect dude. We both know you are going to be laughing soon, but it's impressive to hold the fort well when things are red. Good onya. My path has been easier just by sheer luck... zero skill.

    Nah don't let the occasional hiccup upset your view of the place.... I can bet the vast bulk of us here are smiling right now with these green candles.

    Good heavens..... Don't rely on my opinions.... I'm the Internet equivalent of the village idiot. No real use but occasionally mildly amusing when he stuffs up. But yeah... we don't need to manage Ripple... they are doing fine. I'm sure they can handle a small amount of mixed messages.

    Yeah but then it gets into that awkward human/politics area when the new girl has to ask the major player if he wants to clear up his mistake..... . I'm guessing best to let sleeping dogs lie. I probably should have just pretended I didn't see it....

    Absolutely no need for sorry... It's near impossible to drink from this firehose at times....
