  1. LCW probably calculates liquidity based on the volume within 2% of mid market price. It would be interesting to sum up only the liquidity from The crypto compare top tier exchanges and see what the volume looks like. CMC’s liquidity calculation has BTC at ~60M and XRP at 20M (in the other thread I posted) which is much lower than LCW. CMC also doesn’t say exactly how they calculate liquidity because they don’t want exchanges gaming the system
  2. I took a quick look at CMC liquidity data. It's not posted on their main page, but if you select a currency and look at the markets, you can see their new liquidity metrics. I looked at BTC, XRP and USDT top 400 markets pairs by adjusted volume and summarized below. https://coinmarketcap.com/currencies/bitcoin/markets/ https://coinmarketcap.com/currencies/ripple/markets/ https://coinmarketcap.com/currencies/tether/markets/ Only ~30% of markets are displaying the liquidity index, and XRP is the least reported of 3 above. CMC does not report Bitso liquidity (1-4M daily?). XRP liquidity is probably under represented, but it's anyone's guess how this metric will evolve.
  3. http://ir.moneygram.com/news-releases/news-release-details/moneygram-international-reports-third-quarter-2019-financial the line above it in their report on table 6 is ‘cash and cash equivalents’ for 131M. I’m still not sure what they mean by ‘settlement assets’.
  4. I’m confused about the term ‘settlement assets’ on their earnings report. Surely they can’t have 3.3B+ trapped in the system? Anyone have an idea what this actually means?
  5. Ripple charts hasn’t been supported for years. It has seen many bugs and strange data in the past. Look at it a day or two and you’ll see that spike go away.
  6. https://bitso.com/trade/market/xrp/mxn or via their API https://api.bitso.com/v3/order_book/?book=XRP_mxn
  7. If there is a high volume of bi-directional flow, market makes will see higher profits. Higher profits will increase competition between market makers. More market makers mean more people holding positions in XRP. More demand for XRP means prices go up. We’re not there yet, but it’s starting.
  8. What would be interesting to me is to track the combined USD/MXN exchange rate through this corridor. If the majority of the flow is into Mexico, I would expect the exchange rate to be less favorable to MGI. What they need is someone on the other end to counter balance the flow, i.e. businesses. Businesses might actually see a better exchange rate compared to other corridors if this is the case. Bitso just needs a little help to find those customers and make those deals.
  9. I was at Key Bank the other day signing papers for a new house. We brought the kids with us and they were distracting us from the task at hand. They had to go potty, beg for candy from the bowl, and being a PITA in general. The lady that was helping us with the paperwork made some comment about getting 'paid by the hour' because she wasn't in a hurry. I replied "Paid by the hour? Lucky you, I get paid every 2 weeks".
  10. Link to webcast https://financialservices.house.gov/calendar/eventsingle.aspx?EventID=404235#Wbcast03222017
  11. The escrow Requirement was removed from ILP earlier in the year. https://link.medium.com/cUoSMLpWVZ
  12. Anyone find the actual patent application? I’m having a real hard time finding the original source. The image is so vague it’s not giving me many search terms. So the only way to see it is to join some telegram group? What’s his angle?
  13. There is no requirement to hold full ledger history so no risk there. The issue is that a full history server will have to store these meaningless transactions forever, adding to bloat. Storage costs are small so its annoying, but not really that big of a deal.
  14. I just browsing bithomp so I do t have accurate numbers, but it looks like he’s done 19k spam transaction today at a rate of 40/minute(not per second) Not sure if there are other accounts doing the same, but he may be a lone wolf. Ive been checking ledger observer and don’t really see any meaningful increase in tx/sec.
  15. They get a few transactions at 10-12 drops and then the fee jumps to 6000 drops. Throughput of 40 tx/second from that account.
