  1. Anyone know a website that tracks the XRP Ledger Payment Volume over time? I know you can see the last 24 hours here, https://xrpcharts.ripple.com/#/ , but I am looking to see how it has grown over time. If that chart also had trade exchange volume overlaid, that would be nice. If I can filter to only show Ripple preferred exchanges, even better. Thanks

  3. Last year during the "Sell" conference, I believe the top tick in XRP price was when the lady said "we don't see any demand for XRP" From a comical standpoint, it was great.
  4. Just turn on xRapid and use Jed's XRP to make the USD to XRP market. Less slippage and increased liquidity on that one leg. Be done with this guy once and for all. Easy enough right?
  5. Forgive me if this has already been discussed, if it has please point me in that direction. However, I do find some of the documents he submitted to be interesting. Like everything, there is always more to the story and things can always be construed. Would be extremely interested to know more about the history and where he may be right / wrong. https://prestonbyrne.com/2018/09/20/for-the-last-time-ripple-created-xrp/
  6. Here is a good podcast that echos the same concerns from the original post. This thoughts seems to be getting more traction. http://unconfirmed.libsyn.com/why-the-icebakkt-news-makes-some-crypto-investors-nervous-ep032 Also interesting to think about Bitmain IPO and if they go public, now they act in the best interest of shareholders....which would be.....and those shareholders interests are...
  7. I would love to see some analysis of the map / regions verse top remittance flows. See what connects. See what targeted area might be next.
  8. @Tinyaccount Thank you kind sir, and I agree on everything else you said.
  9. Really, no one cared about this? I'll just crawl back into my corner
  10. CME group: http://www.cmegroup.com/trading/files/bitcoin-real-time-index-methodology.pdf Crypto Facilties: https://www.cryptofacilities.com/indices 28 min in: Back to Crypto Facilties: https://www.cryptofacilities.com/news/launching-ripple-dollar-indices-in-open-beta -USD / XRP index new in October to CF -"Input pricing data to both rates is provided by Bitfinex, Bitstamp and Kraken." -Miguel said in the video they have some work to do in the US. “We don’t have 4 good USD listings in the United States" Probably connecting too many dots, but still fun.
  11. @Sebastian Thanks for the insight. Doesn't seem like she likes to stay at companies very long. 2 years seems to be about her max. @mistatee2000 Would love know more about this infamous Ripple paper as well. https://github.com/petertodd/ripple-consensus-analysis-paper/blob/master/paper.pdf Is it this?
  12. I added in essentially what she said on a different thread, not sure why it did not update this one when editing.

  14. http://fireside.fm/s/mhxz5vBo+5uB7jtbe 28 minutes in. Essentially: XRP from an ownership standpoint is opaque and it would have been hard for to use an asset that is not transparent. Lumens is managed by a non-profit, all ownership is public, it is transparent. When going to a bunch of banks around the world, it seemed like the only option. Scalability and consensus mechanism, for them, it seemed like the best. So what really happened?
  15. I feel that @jd242 brings up some very good points and asks salient questions that I hope Ripple will think about as they continue to develop into a world-class, monopoly disrupting company. For now, the community / retail traders fund Ripple's operations, help support price, and create liquidity of XRP. Additionally, @Miguel has stated that both price and liquidity of XRP need to grow drastically to encourage XRP adoption by financial institutions. The community has been an essential part of the XRP ecosystem to date and will continue to be for the near future. This is indisputable. Ripple’s marketing efforts to banks about ripple's service offerings are clearly succeeding. 100 banks. No one questions this. However, Ripple should consider improving their marketing / communication towards the community (maybe they already have with the new Director of Corporate Communications job posting). This is what I believe jd242 is referencing. Twitter, XRP chat, and Quora AMA’s are targeted towards the community / retail investors. Their current marketing department, as well as Brad, did a poor job differentiating between the two audiences leading up to and during Swell. While Ripple’s Swell goals were fulfilled from a banking perspective (most likely), Ripple's unnecessary hype through the aforementioned marketing channels damaged their relationship with the community, a community that they still depend on for funding, price, and liquidity support. This needs to be understood by Ripple. Whether you disagree with them or not, a decent amount of people feel slighted, even lied to, by Ripple and therefore have sold out and moved-on, which obviously hurts Ripple from a funding/price/liquidity perspective. Ripple shot themselves in the foot. There is zero excuses for this when a company is as well capitalized as Ripple is. What jd2424 is trying to do is ask "why" this happened and "what" changes are needed so this doesn’t happen again. Instead of simply complaining like a lot of people, jd2424 is actually trying to encourage a solution.
