  1. Can you please provide us with links to: 1) the pacer documentation 2) where ripple said it would be settled soon
  2. @Zerpiet Thanks for your comment. I've read the tentoshi description of the liquidity index too. My understanding is that there isn't a "right" way of defining liquidity in some objective sense. There are different approaches that give insight to what's happening: raw XRP volume raw fiat volume some tie-in of volatility to the above The liquidity index attempts to capture 3 with 2, I believe. The truth is, Bitso volumes are still dominated by XRP volume, which suggests that ODL plays a key role in Bitso's overall exchange volume. Below is a plot of the underlying daily MXN volumes on Bitso (source). Whilst admittedly there is a fairly catastrophic collapse after May - which does seem concerning - an explanation of this has been provided by Ripple (a focus a low value transactions). The general trend in recent months does still appear to be up (just about), although the daily transaction volume still remains very volatile. My personal view is that it's way too early to label ODL as "dead". My personal view is that the community should be watching the XRP volume dominance on the known ODL exchanges.
  3. Who here actually understands how to interpret the numbers produced by the Twitter liquidity bot? Specifically, the maths equation used to derive the index value.
  4. XRP volume on BTC markets is currently not far behind BTC volume, and on many occasions will surpass it
  5. From watching this, it appears that SEPX is essentially identical to Codius, right? Or am I misunderstanding something?
  6. Ultimately, they must have cut ODL in its current form because it wasn't sustainable. The question is, why wasn't it sustainable? Here are my guess, which both relate to Ripple trying to protect the price of XRP: 1) the increased volume from ODL was resulting in a negative effect from Jed's sales (which are proportional to volume). They had to cut ODL volume so they could reduce Jed XRP sales. 2) much of the ODL market was being "incentivised" through their incentive scheme. The scheme was ultimately being funded through XRP sales. They had to cut the incentive scheme so they could reduce incentive scheme XRP sales.
  7. This sounds like the logic of a communist. Do you have any idea how markets function?
  8. As far as I'm aware, bitstamp was an xRapid (previous ODL name) enabled exchange. https://coinspectator.com/news/1333818/bitstamp-is-now-officially-licensed-to-facilitate-xrapid-payments-on-ripplenet
  9. Haha. No! I much prefer C++. I had to remind myself the exact interface of maloc because a C based GStreamer application I'm building
  10. Extremely interesting development right here. This may not hold in the near future, but the trend is our friend, and I expect the gap to widen as we go further out into the future https://coinmarketcap.com/exchanges/bitstamp/
  11. Thanks for the clarification. My mistake.
  12. What I don't understand is why there is capacity for unlimited memo size per transaction in the first place. The XRP ledger is a payment network, not a storage network. In my view, the ledger should have a small per transaction memo limit. Any hash of data could be stored, if need be, but keep the underlying off the chain... Storage networks can then be tied to the XRP ledger of need be, without necessary cost to the ledger
  13. Hi all. One of our greatest fud fighters on Twitter was @XRPTrump. Unfortunately, he seems to have disappeared lately. Anyone know where/why?
