    My question for those purest faith, what is the XRP statement of faith i.e catechism?

    I can recommend the search option of this forum, or just read all posts from last 3 years, that will do the trick. 

    But yeah, good point, I’ve always found it very peculiar that on a forum dedicated to a digital asset named XRP there are so many people positive about that very same asset, like the fanclub for FC Barcelona seems to be in favor of their own footballclub and not for, let’s say,  Real Madrid. Weird.  

    Is this of some use to you?  Can you go on with your life or do you still need some help?  AMA! I’m at your disposal, lol.


  2. Could be they’re making profit, but still XRP sales are maybe necessary to fill up a cash-flow deficit ( as BG stated 1.5 years ago in an interview). Different things profits and cash-flow.

    I have a 100% working algo. 

    I will give it to you, after you send me 100B XRP on a ledger nano. 

    Lol. An algo for what exactly?  Does it predict how I’ll react to your generous offer?  And if so,  what’s the outcome?

    Trumps my vacation....banker b*stard. (However, feel free to invite me next time.  :) )

    I still got the US ( anywhere, but preferably the West Coast) on my wishlist. So let’s make the deal that when XRP hits $ 10 we mutually invite eachother, first Greece, then the US.

    Go get some fresh air @Ripple-Stiltskin, the less empty garbage you post the better. :big_boss:

    Done! Just returned from a beautifull Greek Island and ready to post anything! Garbage, empty garbage, content, valuable content, or even just read your 20 page posts about the role of central banks ( no, not THE Central Bank, lol) in the world. 

  6. For the record: anyone saying XRP would go down again while it was on the run after december 12, 2017 in hindsight can be considered not only as contrarian but as realistic ( again: in hindsight), but there weren’t many of them ( quotes please!) 

    So who are the contrarians now, at this moment? People who predict more of the same ( 1.5 yrs of tanking/ flat prices) or the ones that say it will be better soon (TM)?  We’ll know within 1 or 2 yrs max imo. 

    TLDR : the terms “realistic”, “common sense”  and “ voice of reason” give the false impression that predictions made under these flags are more trustworthy. BS.

    Most people thought I was stupid comparing XRP and Nano but it helped that I finally decided both were completely speculative assets in a bull market hysteria.  I don't think anything the "completely speculative assets" part has changed a bit.  

    Still:  reading your actual post from 12/28/17 you give newbies the impression that XRB ( now Nano) would grow even further and you stated that XRP “ won’t give us big dips like before”. 

    If anyone followed this “ implicit advice” then he would be rekt within 2 months.

    I think you just proved my point. Not that I blame you, but like I said:  overoptimistic, realistic, pessimistic, it’s all BS,  crypto is unpredictable and any spot on prediction must be considered as “ luck”. 

    A backtested algo with a succesrate of , let’s say,  > 65% would be nice.   Anyone?

    Common sense and critical thinking is always referred to as FUD in XRP Chat.  I am glad that there are a few reasonable investors in here.  It helps to have some voices of reason in a mostly delusional cult otherwise sometimes I am left to wonder if I am  the one who is insane?  

    Common sense, critical thinking, voice of reason, hypers and perma bulls, fanboys and selfproclamed prophets, TA, crystal balls and algo’s.  It’s all plain BS.  Yes, both sides!  Crypto has been  and is still doing it’s own irrational thing.  In hindsight the hypers of mid 2017 were right, price went up 1200% in 3 weeks in december. ( not to mention spring 2017!!).  In hindsight the “ fudsters” or “ voices of reason” were right from 2018 till now.   

    Don’t think for a moment that you’ve more insight than others now that you’re right ( until now), I call BS on both. 

    FA and TA maybe have ( some) value in traditional stockmarket, not in crypto so far.

    It can rise to $ 5 on pure hype or go to $ 0.006 on an announcement of a major partnership.

    You didn’t grasp what I said:  crypto is unpredictable, meaning a major dump would probably have the opposite effect and bring us to the moon. 

    You really must learn to think contrarian and abandon the herd mentality. 😆

    Nothing that has been circle jerked on in the last TWO YEARS has helped the price. 

    True, but predictions of notorious fudsters that XRP will go to zero haven’t come true either.  Crypto is unpredictable and there lies the beauty afaic.   It can rise to $ 5 on pure hype or go to $ 0.006 on an announcement of a major partnership.  For me the way to endure this all, besides of not investing more than I can afford to lose, is taking the whole shabam with a grain of salt, playing the game, have some fun during the ride and taking some profits now and then when a coin is P&D-ed. Even last 2 years there was money to be made ( with several coins, including XRP).  Just hodling would be wiser in the longterm maybe, but is not for me, I’m way to impatient and in it for the adrenaline.  Since I abandonned the idea of getting filthy rich ( since april 2018) I’m much more relaxed, although I’m 80% XRP atm, betting on a horse I like and “ believe” in. 

    TLDR: circle jerking is fun! 

  11. One of the best interviews I read in a long time. Gives an insight on Ripple’s strategy and what’s going on behind the curtains. I would prefer quarterly financial reports like public companies do, but this is second best. 

    What does this mean for XRP’s price? Nobody knows, but it certainly doesn’t hurt , seeing most other coins with no plans and no use. I’m betting on a few spikes coming years, maybe not 100% based on the intrinsic utility value, but sheer FOMO on the perspective of utility will do the trick imo.

    It can? New concept I suppose as long as the market appreciates volatility. 

    I don’t want to ruin my own party, but it seems to me everyone here is talking about different kinds of liquidity and mixing this up with volatility, utility and other things ending with -ty. 

    Talking about market liquidity ( to be able to sell or buy instantly without a substantial impact on price) there’s a correlation with average daily trade volume ( high) and somewhat weaker with fundamentals and market capitalisation. High liquidity by definition means low volatility. There’s also a correlation with price, atlhough the other way around: investors tend to favor high liquidity with a willingness to pay a higher price ( because the asset is easier to liquidate, thus more in demand). 

    A low price doesn’t necessarily mean low liquidity ( and what do we call low? Research shows it could be for stocks under $ 0.25) , high prices don’t mean high liquidity per se ( what about BTC?). 

    Anyhow: in any discussion it would be a good thing to first have consensus about the definitions of what we’re talking about.
