  1. Trade volume is still over $6 billion (second only to Bitcoin) which is a bit unbelievable considering I am used to seeing $100-300 million. @Drew and @galgitron, I think you are right. There has to be institutional money that has started flowing in post-escrow. Given all of Ripple's recent press, I am sure there is a lot more money flowing in from existing and new individual investors, but I have a hard time believing they are bringing all this money to the table.
  2. The exchanges still seem to be under heavy load. This is good, but I had hoped to be able to pick up some more XRP today. I do not know if I have the patience to deal with it...
  3. Were you surprised though? It was more or less what he said during SWELL.
  4. I hope they have triple checked the audio feed!
  5. Didn't it drop from 0.86 to 0.74 earlier today?
  6. I remember that as well. Honestly, I do not see how Coinbase cannot eventually add XRP. GDAX (part of Coinbase for those who do not know) claims to serve institutional investors, and I would imagine there is a lot of interest in XRP from them. The same would potentially apply to LedgerX as well.
  7. I generally refrain from speculation, but one interesting thing about the Coinbase rumor is the fact that Ripple has not shot it down. This does not mean it is true, but Ripple has a history of proactively shooting down rumors. For those of you who were here in August, you will remember the Alibaba rumor. https://www.coindesk.com/ripple-confirms-china-expansion-plans-shoots-alibaba-rumor/
  8. Here is the link to the thread I believe you are referencing. It often seems to be misunderstood. I believe David's point was no one really knows how high XRP could go. Is there a maximum? Yes but that maximum price is determined by Ripple's success, amount of speculation, how many holders of XRP are willing to sell, growth of the monetary supply, and many other known and unknown factors.
  9. Apologies if this has been posted already. This thread is simply too hot to keep up with. Michael Arrington (XRP hedge fund founder) Tweeted back: "It's stunning that coinbase hasn't added XRP yet." I have no idea if XRP will be added to Coinbase, but Ripple and their associates are mentioning Coinbase a lot recently.
  10. Can you please provide a link?
  11. I hope you are right.
  12. Moved Here from r/Ripple

    Welcome. I too prefer XRP Chat to Reddit, but to each their own.
  13. https://public.tableau.com/profile/sebastian8319#!/vizhome/RipplesInternetofValue/RipplesInternetofValue To my knowledge, no other crypto has a customer/partner base like this. These are only the ones we know about. There could be dozens more in the pipeline.
  14. For sure. The past 24 hour trade volume for XRP is $4 billion. The past 24 hour trade volume for all cryptos is $35 billion. Depending on how successful Ripple is, XRP trade volume could be anywhere from $100 billion to $1 trillion (or more) on a daily basis. No one can say for certain how a trade volume 25 - 250 times greater would impact XRP's price, but it is a fun and interesting question to ponder.
  15. Kraken is completely overloaded. I tried multiple times as I too wanted to pick up more XRP, but I gave up. Fortunately, I was able to pick some more up a few days ago, but I had intended on spreading out my purchase...
