    4.4.0 Update

    I’m seeing some laggy script type artefacts.... eg I ticked a thank you on a post and the posts above changed from the greyed out heart to be a coloured Thank you icon. After scrolling a bit they returned to grey hearts. Never seen this type of thing previously. Also the forum feels more laggy. That could be subjective and incorrect though.
  2. If the perfect scenario came true... then every XRP you convert into fiat will be risking value loss by moving out of the standard and into the insecure realm of fiat. It may be that your wallet will be like a treasure chest... the doubloons inside are permanent stores of value. Much safer than a national currency. Thats my dream anyway.
  3. Oh I may have misunderstood you... the “some people” you were referring to were Ripple. (If I now have it correctly). So you were saying that we shouldn’t be asking some people (eg Ripple) to not aggregate data because in fact it’s public and anyone can do with it as they please. So your opinion is that Ripple have as much right as anyone else to display charts. I’m sorry I didn’t understand it more quickly. I’ll shut up now.... (unless of course, I’ve gotten the wrong end of the stick again... in which case I’ll have to make further apologies). BTW... my opinion is that CM probably is correct in the effect he describes, but I don’t think the solution is less involvement by Ripple. The long term solution is the utility that is current and growing. That’s just my view... I’m generally wrong....
  4. I’m not sure how to say this. I’m slightly worried about but also pleased to see this dev take up of ledger capabilities. I wish you all well, and hope you all bloom into giant services. But at the same time I’m slightly worried about something that isn’t discussed much (at least to my knowledge these days it hasn’t been...). My concern is around the possible ramifications of us all pulling open the curtains behind which enterprises normally function. Banks are all about privacy, and I do wonder what the ramifications of pulling this data apart might be in regards to their possible take up of the technology. I’m sure that Ripple have worked through all this and have a way for enterprises to ensure the privacy that is both their expectation and their right. It’s a bit of a double-edged sword that the ledger is both secure and public. But irrespective of any slight misgivings I might have, there is no way to stop human ingenuity, so trying to avoid looking into the ledger would never work. So knowing that deep data mining is inevitable on the ledger, I guess I just have to trust that Ripple and R3 and everyone else developing payments applications are able to assuage and mitigate any client fears about their privacy. I assume that these ramifications have all been discussed and dealt with in the Ripple/R3 organisations, and therefore will not be an issue. At least I hope so.
  5. Huh? What am I missing? Did a post get deleted or something?
  6. Thanks for that... but let me be age-ist for a moment and guess that you are not an older person... I’ve found that over time the chances of anyone answering more than one question per email or post is rapidly diminishing. Folks seem to be less able to manage lists. Ok, now I’ve got that rant off my elderly chest.... I was also asking about release conditions...
  7. Sorry for peppering you... well you did ask for questions....
  8. Also how do you envision point of sale working? Will I be travelling another country and I can pay via xrp? How do the businesses get on the platform?
  9. I’m starting to see a bit of your vision.... a very nice idea. You are going to use the amazing capabilities of XRPLedger to enable micropayments and cypto safe lodged bets and promisises and streams of payments. All via your platform. Nice. In the Sport arena who is authorising the escrow release after the team wins? And is it a XRPLedger escrow? What are the release conditions?
  10. The Fund page on you demo has a spelling error. Chariry instead of charity. Just letting you know.
  11. Woah.... I can now follow the Twitter link and see the threads. It’s like trying to drink from a firehose. I’m going to have to either ignore this for a bit until some consensus arises on the project or perhaps read some now and again over a period of time. Not sure when you want people to take your Twitter survey... after seeing one flashing gif, or after watching the vid, or after reading the 33 case studies? I do want to wish you every success though @Error ... you guys certainly seem to have done a huge amount of work.
  12. Very interesting, thanks. An ambitious project... i hope they succeed spectacularly.
  13. Where are you seeing this? So far I can’t see a thing. Also I asked if halwaymonitors video was related but was told no... but then I seemed to find a link in twitter... I’m confused.
  14. I often think that. Although he has a lot of competition... there are some really cluey people here. Often they are quieter than some of our more rambunctious members. I’m jealous of how much they know, and who they know, and how long they have known....
  15. Really shouldn’t be a surprise to you that she found you out.... Mommies know everything.
  16. While we have you here... @Error are you connected with the video Halwaymonitor linked? I’m a bit confused about the connection if any...
  17. I’m getting a load error. Can see the rest of my twitter feed though.
  18. As I (mis?)understand it, if you are a Ripplenet member and have a Nostro account with the other member, or a different multihop member actually does and you with them, then Xcurrent provides near instant settlement. (People use “instant” loosely) If you don’t, then you need to move funds or agree to bulk settle later. So in that case not instant settlement. Xrapid will provide ‘instant’ settlement because the XRP carries the value. So it is also providing a liquidity solution because you don’t need a Nostro account. Petsonally I think you both know all that and just like arguing...
  19. John used to be active on here but I think a disagreement saw him move away.
  20. Market makers and takers are waiting for the opportunity to do the trade and take tiny profits of each one.
  21. JPM do not have the whole world locked in as you seem to believe. Our opinions differ and I’ve spent too much time discussing this. I thank you for the discussion especially since you only descended once to ad hom my biases...
  22. No it is not unexpected... and doesn’t need to be “acknowledged”. It already is. And that is my point. We have always known that at least one or some of the larger banks would try this. Brad wrote a blog about this two years ago and many many others have discussed this endlessly before and since. And yet to you it is “worrisome”. This has been a known risk all along. It’s likely not going to be as a big as you seem to think because of all the arguments made against Stablecoins. The market is huge and it was never imagined that there would only be Ripple, the one remaining player As for your allegations that I suffer from a number of biases... sure since I’m human probably I do. That’s why I try and see around them them. You don’t think I manage that... fair enough, believe what you will. I’m still surprised that anyone who knows anything about this space can be alarmed that a bank has decided to create a bank coin. Perhaps you do have no agenda... that just makes it more surprising.
