  1. Hmmm, this thread derailed somewhat, merely about semantics if you ask me. Yeah, feedback is a wonderfull thing. I love to give it, but hate to get it though. Lol. The normal solution with ( tiny) quarrels like this would be to drink a cup of coffee together ( and maybe end up with 20 beers and some whiskey). Sadly that’s not possible in this case, but a few nice PM’s could do the trick. Still wondering why nobody ever asked me to give proof of my identity?! Happy to post a pic of a bodypart or two ( No!! That’s not what I was thinking about!! You’re nasty!). Anyway: humor is what get’s me going in life. It’s already difficult enough as it is.
  2. That’s it! Enough! I’m in it for the tech from now on.
  3. A polar bear in Antarctica? Must be on holiday! It’s a bi-polar bear.
  4. Must be the Polar bear @ecent
  5. I guess 100% comes from Europe! Wait: that’s just one vote, and it’s me.
  6. Finally someone with common sense talking here! Yes, I want protection and I want it now!
  7. So Sister Sledge got it wrong for more than 40 years: Ofcourse it had to be: “ Loost in music” Glad the misunderstanding is solved. Back to the misunderstandings about cryptosts.
  8. So when exactly do we call it a bear market? Low prices but very high interest from investors? Lack of interest, but for other reasons than DA’s not having utility/value? Semantics , Semantics. And BS.
  9. Put her on the ignore list, a great feature of XRPchat, or simply PM the mods here to ban her by reporting her as fudster. That should do the trick.
  10. Lol, wasn’t joking, had to Google them both. Since all the Brexit talk, I unfollowed all British Royalty.
  11. 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.
  12. Thе strengths: EOS tokens exist аnd arе сurrently traded оn Ethereum, thоugh thе smart-contract platform itself, billed аs уеt аnothеr Ethereum killer, haѕ уet tо launch. This article sure has the latest news....
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
  15. No, but imo it neither points towards something very negative for Ripple or XRP.
  16. 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......
  17. 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.
  18. 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).
  19. 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).
  20. 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.
