  1. She? Her? Don't you dare to blame it on us! My understanding is that is was a guy. For the rest you are correct.
  2. In the beginning stages of a company project, you inevitably take decisions that later on turn out to be wrong or financially not interesting. Companies issue stocks or options at prices that later on turn out to be ridiculously low, yet those steps were necessary to raise funds when you have a risky business plan. While I think it is important for us to know what is happening and understand why it happens, as it directly influences our investments and our trust in Ripple, we are not in a position to judge. It can be very tempting for some to think you know it all better, but you don't. Y
  3. Now I am wondering, are there still xrpchat members that are keeping their funds at GateHub?
  4. So Marjan is nicely in line with Marcus Treacher, also ex-Swift, who made the shift from "work together with Swift" to "coexist with Swift" last year.
  5. Encrypted personal data is also personal data according to GDPR. Furthermore, wallet addresses can be extracted from secret keys and wallet addresses could be stored together with personal data in KYC files, so it is theoretically possible to link the secret key to the identity of a person. This is a grey area in GDPR, with room for discussion, but there definitely are arguments.
  6. Yes, and sometimes the person responsible to keep the car keys is responsible if the car gets stolen. It just depends on legislation and situation. That's why I asked if the person that came with such a blanket statement was a specialist or not. If not, his answer is quite useless.
  7. Are you a lawyer specialized in EU or UK law? Or just expressing some personal thoughts?
  8. Meanwhile at GateHub... It's not that they don't have the time to read this thread. @gatehub your behaviour is sickening, to the highest level.
  9. That's why I follow the official filings made by Gatehub, to see if there are things going on in the background. They could increase their capital to compensate victims or pull out capital and file for bankruptcy, and anything in between.
  10. They allotted 112,832 shares for a total of 2,048,980 USD: 71,300 shares x 20 USD 41,532 shares x 15 USD You mean the nominal value, which is 1,128 GBP and is only a number for the books
  11. FWIW, I saw today that Gatehub has increased its share capital by USD 2m. It is unclear who bought them atm. Allotment date was May 24 but it was only registered on June 07. I don't know if they can antedate the transaction and if it has something to do with the hack, but okay, here is 2m more for the victims! See SH01 doc over here https://beta.companieshouse.gov.uk/company/09311138/filing-history/MzIzNjYwNTQ4OGFkaXF6a2N4/document?format=pdf&download=0
  12. Of course! We mean the same thing. I meant that Ripple is not buying MGI stock as a speculative investment (replying to the statement above) but as a strategic investment that is not aiming at multiplying the stock value, but at forcing MGI to use the tech and boost liquidity.
  13. There are much better investments than MGI, I am sure they did not do it for the stocks. I would even go further and say they don't care about the stocks. They gave the money to MGI because they desperately needed it. If MGI adopts xRapid, creates liquidity for the whole market and shows the whole world that xRapid can bring huge benefits, thus bringing in a lot of new customers for Ripple, they don't have to worry about $50m in stocks. $50m is only $0.001 per XRP that Ripple owns, it's peanuts. Nobody cares about the money, except MGI.
