  1. Is there anyone affected directly or not, by the quadrigacx scandal?
  2. Welcome. What is your native language?

    Hi! I'm Bob

    Excellent. There are others here who are interested in Ripples potential for social economics, in fact I got started in the space from a LETs system. Are you still doing anything related or intersecting with similar systems?

    Hi! I'm Bob

    Hi and welcome @BobWay! I was away from the forum and missed your grand entrance. I am busy catching up on stuff here but was wondering if you are the same chap Red who released GDW (I think it was back in 2012-2013)? If so that is awesome, I was using the Goodwill project as an example of how distributed monetary systems could parallel or aid LETs systems.
  5. Congrats to all winners! Messaged you @JCCollins for shipping details
  6. No more than what the ledger shows. rBxQw8gvC5i7GZaeNw4HjKxxyqFS54Cav3 closed the escrow, and was funded/ created as part of the 2theMoon project via purchase of one of the medallions.
  7. Here are some of the documents I am submitting alongside the medallions.
  8. One of the final Senate reports can be read here: https://sencanada.ca/Content/SEN/Committee/412/banc/rep/rep12jun15-e.pdf I believe that Kidd mentioned that NO Canadian banks were using/ testing Ripple. The report says otherwise from such sources such TD spokesperson to the committee. There are also several instances of proof that this has changed since that report/ interview, they can be found in other forum posts
  9. I was the only audience member there I went when I heard this was happening and made a post/ transcript on the old forum I believe. Very nice coffee served in real cups, the senators got served by their assistants... I had to get my own. Still not sure If I was supposed to even some...
  10. Mostly due to fees and deposit limits. The amount either has to be accumulated over time using several direct deposit (ie. interac online) with each adding a cost. There are several bespoke wealth management for high value accounts, but unless you dealing in the hundreds of thousands these options tend to be unworkable for most.
  11. Something shiny arrived today...
  12. Most if not all orders should start receiving shipping/ tracking emails this coming weekend
  13. These are 1/2 troy ounce (technically a tad heavier since its in grams, but so close it makes no real world difference)
  14. Coinsquare has high fees and some hoops to go through BUT they do have a high wealth management services and account managers that should help
  15. Agreed. Depositing via Japan defeated the whole point having a trade in our currency. Never mind explaining the wire instructions to a bank. I am curious who the local provider gateway is though. The list of those willing to work with cryptocurrencies is small... very small
  16. I have given up on these guys. XRP has not yet been listed and they do not respond to requests for updates
  17. Can you find a bank branch that doesn't sponsor a local charity or a national bank without a cause? Having a group of smiling teachers and kids hanging in your boardroom doesn't hurt your company's profile. Of course its advertising. Doesn't mean its bad though. They could have just as easily donated the money to a game reserve, an endangered cute animal or offer to help clean up the oceans. There was a reason this cause was chosen from a long list of worthy causes and it could be simple because they like teachers and kids
  18. I have to be honest and say i do not know a lot about CLS. But it appears they separate processing and settlement, ie. Same old workflow, but perhaps on faster technology or with deeper middle market management to give the illusion of instant settlement (instant payouts, later batch settlements). CLS has been around since 2002 and it looks like your standard FX company that is implementing new fintech to gain a market edge vs. Ripple wich is building from the ground up with the new technology.
  19. Hello and welcome to the forum @Jkumar! There are several examples under tutorials and the new members section on a cold wallet setup- man that could be run on a live distro. The question you have to ask yourself is how often will you be accessing the wallet?Is this a cold wallet for long term storage or a hot wallet for daily trading? If its a cold wallet a paper wallet, writing/ printing off the secret key is all you need. If a hot wallet than desktop Toast wallet would work.
  20. Techcrunch had an article that was interesting on the subject. https://techcrunch.com/2018/06/12/netflix-and-alphabet-will-need-to-become-isps-fast/ I do not agree that Google and Netflix need to become ISP, but the changing landscape of vertically integrated ISPs (AT&T merging with Time Warner and eyeing Fox) makes a strong business case for throttling or simple offering paid access. We might see a return to the cable setup- providers acquiring rights to special access (or being paid for customer access) and the whole package being offered as a bundle to consumers.
  21. I admire your faith in common sense lol Personally I will side with history- someone will come make a mess of it- and that will spur change.
  22. Metered content also runs into the same issues surrounding premium or niche products/ services. There is a reason why channels are bundled together, individually it they could not attract enough interest to support themselves. If you pay for everything you only shell out what you want/ need and rarely branch out to other items/ services. Consider, how many times have you watched or even waited in line for a paid movie you knew nothing about? VS. trying a new show or movie on Netflix because it was there and free? Comcast already rents out users routers for public wifi, I see it going
