  1. I think it is important to point out this document was published in 2016: https://web.archive.org/web/20160107022348/https://www.tasgroup.eu/solutions/payment-networks/interbank-payment-networks/network-gateway-en. Things could have changed since then.
  2. @Eric123, I just wanted to post this to say thanks for this great thread! The only TA content I read on a regular basis is Coindesk's (https://www.coindesk.com/author/ogodbole), Cointelegraph's (https://cointelegraph.com/authors/rakesh_upadhyay), and yours.
  3. Articles such as these should probably be posted in https://www.xrpchat.com/forum/109-other-press/. Perhaps a moderator can provide clarity.

    Zerpening Club

    The Zerpening club is a private club and only has 844 members. There are over 20,000 members on the site. Visitors of XRP Chat and XRP Chat members, who are not part of the club, cannot view the content of the Zerpening club. As @karlos pointed out, there is place to discuss your concerns. It is not in the general forum.
  5. I don't think the $10 million cited in the link above (https://ripple.com/files/xrp_cost_model_paper.pdf) is paid directly to Ripple. This cost is the estimated total cost to implement the software. While this would include any license fees paid to Ripple, I would expect the majority of this $10 million to be salaries for employees' and/or consultants' time for the supporting the actual implementation.
  6. Bloomberg, who often times writes anti-crypto pieces, discussed something similar in an article today. I actually enjoy reading their articles because their journalists (and there appear to be several) come across so bitter at times it is comical. https://www.bloomberg.com/opinion/articles/2019-05-13/bitcoin-s-bulls-are-revving-up-the-lamborghinis-again

  8. This quote is under the Japan section of the report; not the US section.
  9. As a political junkie, I am following the Democratic primary closely. Not sure of Buttigieg's chances in either the primary or general election (if he wins the nomination), but it is remarkable how many languages he can speak. Obviously, he is probably an outlier among Americans.
  10. Ripple claimed they were cash flow positive in a Bloomberg Terminal article (which I do not have access to. But I too remember a discussion on XRP Chat after another story or interview in which Ripple said they would not be cash flow positive without XRP. However, I cannot find the thread on XRP Chat. It is possible Ripple is by now cash flow positive without XRP sales and they are using the proceeds to acquire or invest in other companies to expand the ecosystem. Unfortunately, we will probably never know as Ripple would likely only disclose the details if they were to IPO which may not happen for a long time.
  11. Several months ago, the CEO of TransferWise gave an interview to Forbes. Also, TransferWise markets to both businesses and consumers. https://www.xrpchat.com/topic/29023-transferwise-wont-buy-into-blockchain-until-more-banks-use-ripple/
  12. IBM also seems to be taking a different approach to generating revenue for the project. https://www.coindesk.com/ibm-signs-6-banks-to-issue-stablecoins-and-use-stellars-xlm-cryptocurrency
  13. I think there is a big difference though admittedly I am not familiar with how much work these other projects have done. When Xpring was announced, Ripple stated it was created so that other entities could actively pursue worthwhile use cases for XRP that Ripple did not have the resources to pursue. Below are some interesting quotes from some articles I read about Forte and Ripple. https://venturebeat.com/2019/03/12/forte-and-ripple-form-100-million-fund-for-mainstream-blockchain-games/ https://venturebeat.com/2019/02/26/kevin-chou-bets-big-that-blockchain-will-revolutionize-game-economics/
  14. Wow, Ripple is aggressively pursuing this use case. I know other cyrpto projects are as well. I also like the project is going to incorporate ILP, which should make it currency agnostic, as well as Codius.
  15. Amazing timing. 300% in 5 days and he got back in at 28 cents.
