    XRP Chat : 
    Long time reader, and avid follower here. My name is Tim Lewkow, and I manage a team of six integration engineers at Ripple. I was the second member (employee 23 at Ripple from December 2013) to the now 30+ team that we internally call "Customer Success". That team now includes a tremendous group of project managers, architects, technical services engineers, and account managers. 
    It's really been a special part of my life to watch it grow and evolve into an group that facilitates enterprise software delivery and professional services for financial institutions around the world.
    I also consider myself one of the largest, internal supporters of the XRP side of our business. I work on security, off ledger XRP exhcange integrations, gateways, market maker integrations, and most of the external facing communications that you all read. . 
    ..."Ledger churn" was a recent one I debated @warpaul about
    By way of this introduction, I'd like to officially make myself a part of your community, and do my best to contribute.
    -Tim

    Am I the only one that remembers partial payments exploit that rendered Justcoin out of63M+ XRP and subsequently out of business? Also, Donch's bot that takes advantage of order execution shenanigans.

    Yeh I made that mistake too. My colleagues have turned XRP into a running joke ☹️
    Ripple management is very lucky that XRP holders have no voting rights. Because if we did, half of them would be clearing their desks right now.

    Yep but I suppose Bitstamp will put those on their trading page. Now you can hold Bitstamp.USD on the Bitstamp exchange, but you cannot trade them for XRP on the their own service (you need a ripple wallet for that). Suppose Bistamp is going to add some trading facilities (kinda Ripple wallet if you want) on their trading page where you can trade their own Ripple-IOU's for XRP.  I do not know how exactly their relationship with Gatehub goes, but I guess it still is pretty close. I wouldn't be surprised if they ware re-bundling forces to bootstrap Ripple trading/liquidity (Gatehub still has a hard time to achieve decent liquidity on their own). Or maybe it's just the opposite and are they gearing up competition @gatehub in the Ripple markets.
    @enej might chime in to shed some lights on it?

    So trading on Bitstamp as an exchange as opposed trading on a gateway?
    Current trading on Bitstamp is like trading on Gatehub?
    I guess it's the way the announcement is worded. 
    As it is first thought is "What's new?"

    Hi, 
    We appreciate all your comments and suggestions. 
    FlashFX is not your classic exchange but rather a transfer service / payments proecessor using RCL. 
    Yes, we have an issuing address.
    We all share the same goal, which is to make Ripple succeed in the various forms (RCL, ILP etc). Self managed wallets are in the pipeline.
    For more information, see this release from Ripple:

    It's a breath of fresh air to see Ripple release polished promotional advertising after years of what seemed like only testing and partnership news.
    Ripple is entering the next stage. Was a long wait.

    Will the Crypto Facility's trading platform be connected by the Ripple network to the CME Group digital trading platform? Or is it going to be numerous distinct independent exchanges like Kraken & Polo?

    Corda is going to be open sourced this Wednesday Nov 30th.
    So there will certainly be more R3 stories coming this week.

    What components does it use besides Corda?

    Ripple seems to try and collaborate as much as possible rather than viewing every fintech company or bank as a competitor. R3 (I thought) was zeroed in on securities, while Ripple was focusing on cross-border payments. I was a little confused when R3 trialed Ripple for cross-border payments. Of course Ripple worked great. It works just as great without R3 too! I'm not really sure what value R3 provides. If they plan on building a bunch of private ledgers, that's cool. The logical approach would be to make them ILP-enabled. (And Joel Katz has said that more private blockchains would provide more value exchange volume that XRP could compete to facilitate.)
    Just for fun, picture several, big-headed, long-winded R3 executives intensely instructing the banking consortium that switching to private R3 ledgers, and ponying up $150m in funding, is absolutely vital for making cost-effective, nearly instant, cross-border payments.
    Then picture Joel Katz casually saying -"or you could adopt ILP by adding support to your existing ledgers using Ripple Connect."

    I don't know what the heck goes on over at R3.
