  1. ODL usage increases with liquidity in the market per corridor. Liquidity is provided by market makers. Market makes do not take speculative positions (outright just hold XRP), Market Makers make the fee. They have to hold XRP to do business and collect the fee. Market Makers need to offset the risk of holding XRP. This is done through derivatives. Options, Futures, ETF's, preferably XRP following, but can also be done with correlated assets, like the BTC futures. Derivatives were mentioned in the 2019 Q4 report. For some reason, no one has mentioned this yet. Ripple even links to a 1999 report. Dilap Rao had a tweet today about derivatives as well. The more MM's can de risk their XRP holdings, the more XRP they can hold, the more liquidity they can provide, the more payments and higher volume payments can be sent. Nos / Vos can start to be reduce. Ripple bootstrapped MM's early on with incentive programs, loaning with no risk, but receiving the upside of price appreciation. These incentive mechanisms work to bootstrap, but are not the long term play. 2020 = A focus on regulated liquid derivative markets. This is the next phase.
  2. 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

  4. 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.
  5. 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?
  6. 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/
  7. 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...
  8. 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.
  9. @Tinyaccount Thank you kind sir, and I agree on everything else you said.
  10. Really, no one cared about this? I'll just crawl back into my corner
  11. 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.
  12. @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?
  13. I added in essentially what she said on a different thread, not sure why it did not update this one when editing.

  15. 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?
