  1. I thought it was great. And price of BTC changes daily what’s your point? What a bunch of pricks you are. Someone goes out of their way to write good things about something your invested in and you all come out as if your editors for the New York Times. Check your own spelling before criticizing others.
  2. How do they make money then? i know here's an app called robinhood which is also fee free trading but for stocks in the US. This must just be a ripoff of that but for cryptos.
  3. I can only speak for what has worked for me. Last few weeks I been selling on Friday morning and buying back Sunday morning. Been increasing my position in coins roughly 10-20% a week until last week I lost everything I gained plus 10% of my original investment. My point is even if it works once or twice be very careful. Nothing is set in stone and no pattern or strategy works all the time. Other than that have fun because you'll be having a heart attack with every movement. ???
  4. I was actually wondering what effect war would have on crypto'. Care to elaborate your reasons?
  5. Which part of anything I said makes you think I disagree with that? I'm actually advocating that. See my previous post not the one your quoting.

    This is not my department so my opinion would be of no help to you. But I'd just like to say congratulations.
  7. Yea bro. Don't get me wrong I love as much info as I can get as much as the next guy. But wanting it and demanding it are 2 completely different animals. business is war and every piece of info we get the enemies are dissecting and trying to use to their advantage more than us.
  8. Ladies and gentlemen I also am an impatient person, wanting more info than we've been receiving. It's totally natural. But I'm also realistic in my expectations. Ripple, @miguel @JoelKatz, and the rest of the team don't owe us anything. So let's stop pretending that they do. They especially don't owe us to put their schedule on hold to come here and answer ANY of our questions. They're a private corporation who have a vision they're trying to execute. They don't even owe us a quarterly report. Which they go out of their way to give us. We are not shareholders, nor are we partners in the corporation. We are all simply speculators lucky enough to be able to ride along on this journey with them. Whoever isn't happy sell your xrp and have a nice day. We should be appreciative that they do periodically come here and answer our questions. But let's not act like it's something that's obligatory on their part. Whoever has been a long time holder you've already made 4000% profit already, cut the crap and stop being greedy. We're at war with over 1000 crypto coins. There's no time to play these pricing games every time someone isn't happy with where the price is today.
  9. I agree that at the moment it is bank to bank but I think it's commercial usage possibilities are way bigger tbh. When banks finally start using it, it will be a "currency" plain and simple. The next step could easily be that banks integrate $XRP into the actual bank account. For example log into your bank account and you'll see national currency on one side and xrp on other side, if that small and simple step is taken it's game over for every other cryptocurrency period. Another possibility is being able to send peer to peer through text messages. But my hope is that credit cards implement it. As of today consumers swipe a card for goods or services at merchants business then at end of business day merchants batch out all credit card transactions then wait for 1-2 days for visa/mc etc. to deposit those funds in merchants bank account. However if they somehow integrate xrp and ripple tech as their platform, when u swipe a card at any store that money can be instantaneously deposited into the bank account of said merchant which will free up all the "float" money required in business's bank account. Now calculate all the credit/debit card transactions worldwide on a daily basis. Americans made 33.8 billion credit card transactions in 2015 (up 3.1 billion from 2012), worth $3.16 trillion (up $0.61 trillion since 2012). (Federal Reserve) Americans made 69.5 billion debit card payments in 2015 (up 13 billion from 2012) with a value of $2.56 trillion (up $0.46 trillion from 2012). (Federal Reserve) There were 775.4 payment (debit, credit, prepaid) cards in force in the U.S.in 2012. (Federal Reserve) The number of debit and prepaid transactions in 2012 was more than twice the number of credit transactions. In 2000, the number of debit and prepaid transactions was less than half that of credit transactions. (Federal Reserve) 103.3 billion card transactions (credit and debit) were made in 2015, with a value of $5.72 trillion, up 19.9 billion and $1.07 trillion, respectively, since 2012. (Federal Reserve) Debit cards had the highest payment intensity in 2012, with 23 payments per month. General-purpose credit cards saw 11 payments per month, and prepaid cards saw 10. (Federal Reserve) These stats are only USA. $XRP the possibilities are limitless.

    Jamie Dimon and xrp

    He's a Con Man. He's just trying to drop price so he can buy more. If you think he really believes that then this must mean that all these people are liars or stupid Quotes from Famous People Who Invest millions into Crypto Currency: "Bitcoin] is a techno tour de force." - Bill Gates, Founder of Microsoft who has invested over 500 million into this space. "You can't stop things like Bitcoin. It will be everywhere and the world will have to readjust. World governments will have to readjust" - John McAfee, Founder of McAfee “It's money 2.0, a huge huge huge deal.” - Chamath Palihapitiya, Previous head of AOL instant messenger “We have elected to put our money and faith in a mathematical framework that is free of politics and human error.” - Tyler Winklevoss, Co-creator of Facebook “Entire classes of bugs are missing.” - Dan Kaminsky, Security Penetration Expert for Cisco and Avaya “There are 3 eras of currency: Commodity based, politically based, and now, math based.” - Chris Dixon, Co-founder of Hunch now owned by Ebay, Co-founder of SiteAdvisor now owned by McAfee “Right now Bitcoin feels like the Internet before the browser.” - Wences Casares, Founder of Banco Lemon, aquired by Banco do Brazil, Won Xbox game of the year for his game Assault Heroes "Bitcoin will do to banks what email did to the postal industry" - Rick Falkvinge, Founder of the Swedish pirate party "Bitcoin may be the TCP/IP of money." - Paul Buchheit, Creator of Gmail “ I think the fact that within the bitcoin universe an algorithm replaces the functions of [the government] … is actually pretty cool.

Just like microcomputers." - Paul Graham, Creator of Yahoo Store “I do think Bitcoin is the first [encrypted money] that has the potential to do something like change the world." - Peter Thiel, Co-Founder of Paypal "I really like Bitcoin. I own Bitcoins. It's a store of value, a distributed ledger. It's a great place to put assets, especially in places like Argentina with 40 percent inflation, where $1 today is worth 60 cents in a year, and a government's currency does not hold value. It's also a good investment vehicle if you have an appetite for risk. But it won't be a currency until volatility slows down." - David Marcus, CEO of Paypal “"[Virtual Currencies] may hold long-term promise, particularly if the innovations promote a faster, more secure and more efficient payment system.” " - Ben Bernanke, Chairman of the Federal Reserve "Virgin Galactic is a bold entrepreneurial technology.

  13. Either is the US dollar. It's literally not backed by anything. I hate bitcoin don't get me wrong but it's only bc I don't understand it. "My daughter bought bitcoin and it went up and now she thinks she's a genius" that's what he said in that interview. He's a crook one of the biggest on the planet that's why he's CEO of JPM. Crypto is still independent of him and people like him, they can't control it. They can't manipulate it legally. That's why they hate it. They hate that people are starting to notice they can trade things and make money without him and the likes of him ripping people like you off with their God damn fees. Him and people like him destroyed the world economy in 2008 or have you all forgotten? He wants you to stay stupid so whenever u safe a few dollars you think he's the only one who can invest it for you. He's a goddamn bloodsucker.
  14. Let's be clear. In January it was less than a penny. In may or June it touched .40 cents that's unbelievable progress are you all high? If that's not progress what is? Now for a curve ball question let's play devils advocate. Anyone ever thought maybe Ripple should dump all xrp into the market if they're so confident it will be the new standard? Let the price drop temporarily and then Whoever adopts its tech will have to buy their own xrp from regular exchanges like the rest of us? That way we'll all be treated the same as banks. In all honesty XRP holders and current buyers are only thing keeping Ripple funded while we're not even their targeted customers.
