  1. Ripple isn't a consumer facing company, neither are XRP intended for the public.
  2. Not necessarily. Has to begin somewhere.
  3. They are just using Ripple tech.

    XRP is probably not being used initially: http://www.coindesk.com/cgis-new-ripple-validator-gives-third-eye-view-into-distributed-ledger/

  10. More like the fork opportunity.
  11. You are assuming that the competition is another digital asset like XRP. Maybe the competition is something that doesn't require another digital asset.
  12. $200 is completely delusional. There will be competition. SWIFT, Hyperledger and the Digital Trade Chain Consortium. In the long run the most stable intermediary for exchange will probably be a basket of world reserve fiat currencies. $1 to $10 is a more realistic short and long term goal.

    Site needs a sticky "Ripple" forum

    I think the board needs a sticky "Ripple" forum at the top of the list. With sticky posts that are constantly refined with concise info about Ripple, the tech and the progress. But it should also include counter arguments and responses that could be referred to whenever they come up. If the sticky is constantly refined with new info and properly organized, it would be a great resource. Currently this kind of info is hidden all over the place. The noob forum is too focused on being a noob to the site and focuses on secondary things like how to setup wallets and how to get XRP. Noobs and all of us for that matter need a concise resource for compiling info about Ripple and XRP and addressing any concerns. That would be so much more efficient than random noob hype, echo chamber and playing criticism whack-a-mole.
  14. To criticize banks for adopting Ripple tech by pointing out they aren't initially using XRP is short sighted. It's not going to happen all at once. Banks are extremely conservative. The first step is for them to replicate exactly what they are doing now with new tech. But it doesn't take a genius to know what happens after that. The fact that they are adopting Ripple tech even without XRP use at this point is extremely bullish for XRP. Is that good enough for you @hodor? Got to counter

    The reason why XRP will be adopted

    It's an exaggeration. But I hope you get the idea. Look at market depth, there is not a lot of buy support. As previously stated, the reason for the criticism is that we're getting excited by hearing the same thing we've heard for years but reacting to it as though it's something new because it's coming from a new person that is having those same initial realizations. Sure it's great to re-live that feeling again. But hat's an echo chamber, there's zero countering. Would much prefer to hear a balanced discussion and be realistic instead of patting everyone on the back for repeating the same things over and over. Shouldn't we be discussing important things like: Is there really enough momentum at this point to continue higher without a downtrend? Are we identifying, analyzing an posting about potential competition. How big of a threat are they? Totally agree that the basics of Ripple technology should be stated. But in an msc posts all over the place? Why isn't there an easily identified Forum or sub-forum that is clearly defined and constantly refined with sticky posts to explain all the great things about Ripple? All the newbie stuff here is about wallets and how to get XRP, with an emphasis on being new to the forum.
