  1. There's usually a huge discrepancy between how we see ourselves and what our thoughts are in reality. Last couple of years I saw a couple of so-called conservatives or libertarians promoting many communist or socialist ideas. Also, when someone says he knows how markets function, that might not be entirely true.
  2. When I was running my rippled servers, CPUs were only taking some 5-10%. Something else must be running in background. Or are you experimenting with your own builds?
  3. He is just one of those who think they can time the market. Nobody can. This kind of approach leads to buying too late and paying too high price. If he sees XRP positively, then the time invest is now. Simple as that.
  4. Uber denies, but there's no smoke without fire... WireCard is owned by Reisebank, which is one of oldest Ripple partners. By partnering with this company Uber can get ahead with realtime DLT payments. Uber: "We are not in conversations with Wirecard for card acquiring" Of course you are not in this for the card..... --- EDIT: WireCard is NOT owned by Reisebank, but these two firms work with each other for about 2 years. --- SOURCE: https://finance.yahoo.com/news/uber-says-not-talks-germanys-161526557.html
  5. NO. Stupid idea. 400 top quality people at Ripple work 24/7/365 how to make a good use of ALL 100B.
  6. It does not matter and it never was meant for the retail. RippleNet users are free to create plentitude of tokens and name them however they like. XRP can be successful even if it's being only used to facilitate all that services - ODL, StableCoins, Sologenic type of coins, tokenized-whatever-coins (stocks, bonds, real estate...), loyalty coins...
  7. Libra is designed to directly compete with main world fiat currencies within their own areas of interest, while RippleNet+ODL is helping fiat currencies to achieve crypto-like features in terms of speed and cost of exchange. Maybe they will try to launch Libra on some markets in 2021, but I simply don't see how this concept could become mainstream on a worldwide scale. @tulo, I don't need to study that whitepaper to see the big picture. Diving into much technical details in this case actually distracts you from seeing what's really important. It may give you some edge in nitpicking over tiny details, but that's basically all. Libra is not going to happen. Are you ready to take the McAfee's challenge here?
  8. 1. Libra is actually another fiat. Who would like to see a new one to compete with? 2. RippleNet+ODL is a technology enabling superfast value transfers within the current fiat world. I believe this case is closed...
  9. That "Respected Trader" is CryptoManiac101, so better stay skeptical about these predictions...
  10. I think that Ripple feels their solutions can now be finally marketed simply as RippleNet and that XRP is no longer something that "is not wise to mention". Times when they had to disguise their crypto XRP-based system under names like xCurrent or xRapid seem to be over and now it's simple RippleNet. Excellent news!!
