  1. Professional crypto traders worldwide make huge profits based on their TA.
  2. https://www.cryptopolitan.com/fxcoin-partners-sbi-to-launch-a-volatility/
  3. In your initial post in this thread you did not distinguish any type of CBDC, you put all CBDCs on one big heap and said bridging them is "the worst and most absurd use case" you had ever heard. Now you're narrowing it down to a very specific type of CBDC that may theoretically not need bridging, but it's a type of CBDC that does not exist.
  4. Even if you had a 'non tokenized money' version of a CBDC, one that doesn't need to be backed by fiat, it would still equal fiat money and fiat money can and will be inflated by banks and governments. History has shown that.
  5. I think we shouldn't forget CBDCs aren't assets, they're liabilities, because they're backed by fiat. So you're transferring liabilities, not value. Ripple is trying to create an internet of value, not an internet of liabilities. Also, correct me if I'm wrong, CBDCs do not solve the Triffin dilemma (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Triffin_dilemma).
  6. That particular XML file has been deleted. It may be related to https://ripple.com/matchmaking/organizations/?destination_country=AO&dir=receiver&order=asc&orderby=title
  7. A summary report of the European Commission says that the main barriers to operating truly cross-border and calling for further harmonisation are duplication in anti-money laundering requirements across member states, diverging know-your-customer applications, discrepancies in PSD2 transpositions, as well as differences in national consumer protection, consumer credit, and insolvency rules, and tax rules for cross-border services (source: https://ec.europa.eu/info/sites/info/files/business_economy_euro/banking_and_finance/2020-digital-finance-strategy-consultation-summary-of-responses_en.pdf).
  8. @CryptoEri drew my attention to this interesting video. "They are a store of value just like Bitcoin is, obviously, but they're the clear winner currently in that cross-border space, the clear winner. They could be the Netscape of the world or they could continue to be Google from day 1 to where they are today."
  9. Imagine for a moment you're a central bank and Accenture is your tech delivery partner for domestic payments. Wouldn't it make perfect sense to ALSO have Accenture as your tech delivery partner for cross-border payments? Ps. I read somewhere that Bank of Canada also works with Accenture.
  10. FCA has confirmed XRP is not a security, SEC hasn't. However, since both companies have signed cooperation arrangements reaffirming their commitment to continue close cooperation in March 2019, I'm convinced it's impossible for the SEC to view XRP differently.
  11. I initially thought Steve Wynn is a pseudonym (I kept asking myself 'did Steve Wynn?'), but it could be Steve Alan Wynn, founder of Wynn Resorts and estimated by Forbes to have a net worth of $2.4 billion in 2015. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Steve_Wynn I think it's him, but I'll check.
  12. I like his simplistic view. https://www.forbes.com/sites/johnnavin/2020/07/12/xrp-is-the-crypto-to-watch-says-vegas-blackjack-pro/
  13. @LetHerRip I'm just curious, are you an investor?
  14. And those who do find the issue of low speed and high fees annoying, you can suggest to send BTC using the XRP ledger
  15. This is how Google has indexed one of the webpages of BoA's official website: I don't think anyone has tampered with the meta title tag You can verify that yourself by visiting https://www.bofaml.com/content/boaml/en_us/home.html and checking the source code of that page. It will show you the following meta title tag: <title>Bank of America Merrill Lynch - Business Solutions </title> Merrill is a Bank of America company. Bank of America Merrill Lynch is also mentioned on Julie Harris' LinkedIn page: https://www.linkedin.com/in/julie-harris-450511134/
  16. If Julie Harris would personally confirm that what was said in the interview is true, would that convince you? The transcript of the particular podcast https://www.xrparcade.com/ is referring to, can be downloaded from the official website of Bank of America Merrill Lynch (I understand you'd like to see an official publication or tweet, but that's not going to happen): https://www.bofaml.com/content/dam/boamlimages/documents/articles/ID20_0286/digitization-of-payments_podcast_transcript.pdf
  17. Did you listen to the audio or do you believe it was fabricated? Of course there's no tweet and there won't be a tweet soon either.
  18. Julie Harris, Head of Global Banking Digital Strategy of Bank of America Merrill Lynch, has said the following: “It’s not about our platform and our capabilities, it’s about you as a client and the infrastructure you have and the ability for us to integrate, whether that’s with platforms and capabilities that we built our partnerships that we have with the likes of Ripple or Swift. These are Fintechs that we’re partnering with. They’ve come through all of our rigor of legal and compliance and we’re able to leverage our banking as a platform to deliver that to you. So I really think the fu
  19. "SWIFT says it’s looking to become a global leader in account-to-account and business-to-business transactions, taking on credit giants Visa and Mastercard as well as emerging fintech companies like Ripple." This suggests SWIFT has specifically said it is taking on Ripple. None of the original articles the Daily Hodl is referring to, claims SWIFT has said that though. I'm not sure if ISO 20022 for cross-border payments supports instant settlement, SWIFT's article on https://www.swift.com/standards/iso-20022-programme/timeline does not talk about it. Last but not least, the end-date to ena
  20. I second that. You'd also lose purchasing power when XRP is set to a specific number of dollars and the dollar devalues.
  21. One of the things the video emphasizes, is trust. True trustless cryptocurrencies or digital tokens, eliminate the need to trust a company, auditor, bank or humans in general. A private network without tokens or smart contracts however, does not eliminate that need and therefore isn't trustless, nor decentralised. I personally believe private, centralised networks ultimately can't and won't be trusted. Hasn't history shown that? You said MANY of the upcoming developments will use some type of a digital token. That's exactly what I think and I believe the majority of those tokens and crypto
  22. True, to consider stocks, bonds, real estate, and gold to be cryptocurrencies, is odd, but I was referring to the 'digital representation' of it. In order to store a digital representation of something (stock, bond, house, precious metal etc.) on the blockchain, I would need a digital token or a cryptocurrency, right?
  23. I personally don't read that Jay Biancamano does NOT expect crypto to blow up again. Correct me if I'm wrong, but digital representations of traditional assets, like stocks, bonds and gold, are cryptocurrencies, aren't they? How big the crypto market can become, is realistically discussed in the article below. "The World Economic Forum has predicted that around 10% of the world’s GDP will be held in the form of tokenized assets by 2027. If we took 2017’s global GDP as a reference point, which amounted to 75 trillion US Dollars, then 10% of that would be 7.5 trillion US Dollars. If we fact
