  1. Brad G. is pumping our bags, what a time to be alive.
  2. Would be good if they simply announce/disclose it. Originally, it was pitched like: https://ripple.com/insights/welcome-to-xpring/ "That’s why today we are announcing Xpring (pronounced Spring). Xpring is a new initiative by Ripple that will invest in, incubate, acquire and provide grants to companies and projects run by proven entrepreneurs. Every entrepreneur will use the digital asset XRP and the XRP Ledger, the open-sourced, decentralized technology behind XRP, to solve their customers’ problems in a transformative way." The sentence in bold was never true even from t
  3. Maybe it's just me but I can't see any of the images, only thing I can see is one tweet link which doesn't seem to have much to do with my post.
  4. Just curious - what regulation are we talking here exactly - US? As far as I know a lot of countries have already given regulatory green light - Singapore, UK, Japan(?).. I'm pretty sure there are others. However, banks are nowhere to be seen - you would think Brad as a CEO of Ripple and dealing with banks and customers all the time would've known this kind of stuff 2+ years ago when he said that major banks will be using ODL in 2019 - or he's suddenly surprised there's no regulatory clarity From what was mentioned before by people at Ripple, xrapid/ODL was created exactly so that banks
  5. 1. Remove anyone that is/was involved with Xpring - stop giving away XRP to projects and people that don't have anything to do with XRPL, rather focus the investment towards people like Wietse that are willing to build on top of XRPL. 2. Remove Brad from the CEO position. 3. Make ODL more scalable - don't focus on shady crypto exchanges in order to transfer money back and forth as this won't scale e. g. with the current model if they want to open a corridor in Africa they'd have to wait for a proper exchange to be in place. Better to think of another design - perhaps a pool of liqu
  6. I find it hard to believe, no offense.
  7. There's your formal confirmation -
  8. Sorry to burst anyone's bubble, but that's not how LinkedIn UI works.
  9. Well, more than 2 years ago if I remember correctly he said that if XRP volume and liquidity is the same 1 year later (we are now 2.5 years later) he'll leave/get fired. Not counting the massive amount of wash trading and fake volume, the volume is actually a lot less than what it was in 2017 so I guess he finally decided to leave. About 1.5 years too late, but better late than never.
  10. Tiffany seems to have lost the plot a bit.
  11. @quan , I don't want to get into lengthy discussions to be honest as I won't change your mind about anything and you probably won't change mine either, but since I'm under quarantine anyway let me address some of the points. Of course. Almost all coints have no utility and they've been around for more than 5 years. Heck, coins like ETC even got 51% attacked, devs left and they are still in top20 of the market. Another example - LTC, been around for ages. Just a stupid fork of BTC, barely any development for the past 2-3 years, just look at their github repo - https://github.com/litecoi
  12. No, it's not. 99% of the coins out there don't have much of an ecosystem and are able to outperform the few 'utility' tokens. Investing into an ecosystem by selling your gifted tokens is hardly considered 'investing', is it. More than a billion dollars later there isn't a single bank using XRP - I'd argue the price of XRP now would be worth twice as much without all those xPring and the likes investing.. which in most cases has nothing to do with XRP, it's just expanding Ripple's business.
  13. They are not a large investor, rather large stakeholder. Hard to 'invest' too much when your whole stack was gifted to you.
  14. Just my .02c what might happen after a Ripple IPO: - Institutional money, hedge funds etc. (the big money a lot of people are actually hoping to start flowing into crypto and/or XRP) would almost certainly prefer to hold Ripple stock rather than buy XRP for various reasons - lower risk, regulated market, dividends etc. - A lot of XRP holders might convert some of their stash into a Ripple stock -> could lead to somewhat short-term selling pressure. - For a crypto noob or a new investor, XRP could be seen only as a high risk speculative token that is being traded on a manipula
  15. Indeed. However, my post wasn't prticularly bullish, I feel like Ripple IPO will be absolutely terrible for XRP (although it might not be as bad as Ripple continue selling on the open market for the next 10 years, yet to be seen). Another thing is a long time ago Brad I think mentioned they don't really rely on XRP sales to keep the ligths on which is not true (I didn't believe it back then for 1 second, but I'd imagine a lot of people did)
