    Will Ripple XRP reach $1000

    Quote: Nоw insiders оf thе crypto scene put fоrward thе bold thesis thаt аn XRP cоuld ѕоon bе worth $500-1000. Thаt wоuld bе аn increase іn thе vаluе оf 169,931 percent! “Bold thesis” is a bit strong imo, insiders know that 169,932 percent rises are business as usual in crypto. The question is: will XRP reach $ 1000 when it rises 333333 percent?? Yes, I believe it will.

  7. Lucky would be an understatement to describe one man in Canada. Peter McCathie survived being hit by lightning when he was a teenager and now he’s won the lottery — both events combined come to about a 1 in 2.6 trillion chance. McCathie is splitting the $1 million Lotto 6/49 prize with co-worker Diana Miller, the Atlantic Lottery told ABC News today. He’s getting an additional $10,000 since he owns the Amherst Shore Country Store in Amherst Shore, Nova Scotia, where the duo bought the $3 ticket. Players select six numbers for the Lottery 649 game and a bonus number, seen in this voided ticket. McCathie’s first experience of defying odds — a nearly one in one million chance — happened when he was 14 years old and wading through shallow waters. “I was trying to lock the boat up, it was a very sunny day, there was one big, white cloud in the sky and the lightning bolt came through the trees and hit me,” McCathie told CTV. McCathie survived the lightning strike and now years later, he told CTV he plans to use his unexpected winnings to take his wife of 30 years on a second honeymoon. McCathie and Miller had been buying lottery tickets for about a year, but never imagined they would defy the odds. “I honestly expected to get hit by lightning again first,” he told CTV. The 1 in 2.6 trillion calculation comes from combining the lottery odds, lightning odds and the odds that McCathie’s daughter was struck by lightning as well, which happened a few years ago, University of Moncton mathematics professor Sophie Leger told ABC News today. Leger worked through the equation — noting that she didn’t know the exact number of lottery tickets McCathie has bought in his lifetime — to come up with the near-impossible odds. “It’s almost not possible, but it did happen,” she said. “It shows that anything can happen in life.” Peter McCathie did not immediately respond to ABC News’ request for comment.

    Has Corey Johnson left Ripple?

    XRP dipping below the long term Elliotwave number 5 descending triangle support, validating the head and shoulder pattern which could mean a false bear trap that suddenly turns into a bull trap once the shorts get rekt at the 68% Fibonacci retrace line.
  10. Ripple-Stiltskin

    Has Corey Johnson left Ripple?

    No, but imo it neither points towards something very negative for Ripple or XRP.

    Has Corey Johnson left Ripple?

    Come to think of it a bit more: I think they need a Chief Market Strategist to edit the text about Cory’s leave in a proper and positive way. ah wait......
  12. Ripple-Stiltskin

    Has Corey Johnson left Ripple?

    True. And thats why I have a hard time to give it a positive spin, like I stated. ( people overestimating their price and are forced to leave isn’t exactly very positive). But yes, it happens every day, true.
  13. Ripple-Stiltskin

    Has Corey Johnson left Ripple?

    Ok. But he was prominent enough to make a public statement about it ( and I think Ripple knows very well what his leaving and the statement about it can cause in crypto overhyped crazy land). So I think they considered not communicate at all ( bad), communicate with a positive spin ( apparantly not possible) or communicate neutral ( which this is. And vague).
  14. Ripple-Stiltskin

    Has Corey Johnson left Ripple?

    Exactly! And that’s a red flag for me. Positive changes at Exco level are usually communicated in a different way: - wait with the communication until there’s clarity about the new position of the leaving exco member and/or: - stating explicitly that everything is discussed in good harmony and/ or - giving explicit details about his succes ( deals or other concrete milestones). - giving explicit details about why exactly this role ( CMS) isn’t needed anymore ( preferably spinned very positive). TLDR: when a separation is somewhat negative, this is exactly the vague way big companies communicate the facts. But just my opinion ( based on years of experience of first hand, but could be very wrong nevertheless).
  15. Ripple-Stiltskin

    Has Corey Johnson left Ripple?

    Cory’s last year was also his first, lol. I’m very familiar with how ( and why!) big companies communicate changes at Exco level. I really have a hard time to give a positive spin to both the fact itself as the way this is communicated.

    Ripple Has Signed Up A Bank To Use XRP For Payments. So What?

    Lol! Last 13 months the train need no breaks, he’s standing still at “ Bear-station” . All aboard! ( can anyone blow the whistle so we can leave the station please).

    Within a decade or so (big) banks will be transformed into (big) IT companies. May the best tech win.

    Oh man. This edit ruined everything. You’re wrong on so many levels with this statement . Are you sure you’re a tech guy?? Or just a fax repair mechanic?

    Ripple Has Signed Up A Bank To Use XRP For Payments. So What?

    That’s the spirit! So there’s a possibility it will be a groundbreaking succes! ( until now all your posts suggested otherwise, sometimes explicitly, in tone of voice always). Carry on and educate yourself a bit more about the developments of future banking that already are set in and are already affecting customers. A brave new world will open itself right before your eyes. Goodnight.

    So you do believe other banks are and/or will use XRP ? Tell me.

    Ripple Has Signed Up A Bank To Use XRP For Payments. So What?

    Yawn. First disclose the exact numbers of the POC and the name of your bank. Mister “ fancy buzzwords made up by academics”. Sir “ I work for a big bank, we did a POC with xCurrent but no real savings came out, so other banks won’t use it either”

    If you think these are only buzzwords then you’re living under a rock. ( academics??? Wtf??) So it’s people like you that make big banks a sitting duck, lol. Try to expand your horizon a little bit: talk with consultants of the big 4, follow new banking and fintech groups on Linked In, attend conferences, just look around you to see what’s happening. You’re already left behind. Like I said: my bank will surprise you with xRapid soon. But even if not: that doesn’t mean other banks won’t. Among banks there will be winners and losers. Guess what bank you’re working for...

    There you are. For some banks it’s a substantial part of their profits, for others it’s marginal. But the “ general banks” ( servicing all customer segments with the whole product package) and the banking landscape as we know it is changing rapidly as we speak. So I assume your bank will leave xBorder payments soon to a third party liaison, like many other services. If not they will be a sitting duck. To throw some hyped words in: ever heard of “ Open Banking”, “API banking” , BaaS ( banking as a service) , “ FinTech transformation”, “ First principle design”, “ Distributed banking”, “ disintermediate banking” , “ relegated banking”, “ Digital Challenger Banks”. And so on. Do attend a ( international) conference now and then......( Money 2020).
