  1. Accenture is a backer of Ripple... https://www.accenture.com/us-en/insight-real-time-cross-border-payments
  2. I think it's possible that the Chinese government is angling to take over the mining pools...
  3. These are some deep pockets looking for crypto projects (together with Xpring!) - I think we'll want to keep our eyes on this - "An investment by such a group increases a new founder’s access to the fund’s funders (in this case, Xpring and Bain, which is one of the world’s largest investment firms with over $105 billion in assets under management)." Bain Capital and Ripple’s Xpring Invest in DeFi Founder’s ‘Scout Fund’ Brady Dale Apr 10, 2019 at 15:00 UTC "Robert Leshner, founder of crypto money market Compound Finance, has received $1 million from Bain Capital Ventures and Ripple’s Xpring to write checks to early-stage companies. The project is called Robot Ventures, both a play on Leshner’s first name and a reminder that automation is coming for all work. “I think the robots will take our banking jobs as well,” Leshner told CoinDesk. A scout fund is a fairly recent development in the broader technology world, and Leshner doesn’t know of another one looking specifically for crypto projects. That said, scout funds are known to operate somewhat secretively, so there’s no way to be sure. Distinct from angel investors in that they have a direct link to institutional money, scout funds normally eye toward investing in later rounds. An investment by such a group increases a new founder’s access to the fund’s funders (in this case, Xpring and Bain, which is one of the world’s largest investment firms with over $105 billion in assets under management)."
  4. Yep, still here since July of 2017, sorry can't post so often, will return when I clear the backlog of things I neglected while making 2,299 previous posts Hodling strong!
  5. Amazing post @Leonidas Thanks for gathering all this news and information together! When you see it all laid out there (without all the usual interspersed FUD) it's really mind-boggling. Should be pinned and yes, if you can possibly keep it up that would be excellent...
  6. I love this, after all, "our" team is not exactly standing still lol
  7. Rafiki was well mentioned in one of Hodor's latest blogs, in case anyone missed it, go back and have a read...
  8. Mercury FX CEO looks like the early bird that got the worm I'm so happy to see that he's happy!
  9. Retired folks do a lot of travelling... just sayin'
  10. Quite a breakthrough! The security may prove to be tricky, I think...
  11. Hi Bob, I'm Giddy Up, and as far as I'm concerned you are welcome to visit anywhere I happen to end up - could be a yacht, have definitely lived long-term on a houseboat - I'm really enjoying all of your posts and ideas, but am unlikely to "run" with anything besides scissors! Thanks again for showing up just when we needed you, you're a champ...
