  1. nah, the groups im in barely watch any youtubers and can easiliy identify hype and fud from facts and know the news before these 'youtubers' talk about it pretending they are understanding it.. i think that the popularity you describe is a picture the youtubers love to spread about themselves, but all i see is fake news, hype, misunderstandings and for a true xrp investor its incredibly cringeworthy to watch. Be your own boss, read & learn, invest some time and efforts into your own brains so you can make up your opinions, they are easier to defend and you can change your vision easier as it becomes a true learning process instead of adapting other peoples opinions and trying to make them your own based on popularity instead of propability, facts and logics. You are way smarter than you think once you take away the limitations of being captured in another persons mindset
  2. ye, they tend to like to shoutout who they think is right, usually just go with the popular opinion as they dont know who is right or wrong, but bet on the majority. Easy targets for hypes, scams, bots and fake stuff
  3. i dont think watching a youtube channel is something people do when they want the 'news', its better to read about a lot of stuff yourself and learn about it - instead of listening to another persons interpretation of something he might or might not know a lot about - sooner or later you will lose the ability to judge for yourself because you stopped taking the effort of reading yourself.. by then you are being used that everything is chewed for you before you swallow. Get the real taste of this, read read read read & read. Way more fun too, and you wont clickbait yourself into becoming a sub on 'secret guest' and 'inside information' that non of them have
  4. the bitcoin forks - i know, a fork isnt an airdrop, but still - you get my point
  5. thats their choice, they could have not done that to avoid it, or give those details later to avoid the multiple wallet creation. i doubt people would lock up 20xrp at the time to assume something like that would occur
  6. would have been easier if you would have put the snapshot in the future, so people could have moved their xrp to a trustline compatible wallet first
  7. does that mean you will wait for them to fix the wallet and keep the possibility for the trustline airdrops open until then? I really dont feel comfortable exposing my ledger to gain coins
  8. So anyway... i had a ripple wallet with 20 xrp on it after transferring it to my nano i did the ALV thingy and added a trust line, got 5k ALV then i removed the trust - nothing happened (it said 'we will convert your balance of ALV to XRP' but it didnt) then i tried to add the trustline again and now it said 'you need 30 xrp to add another trustline' weird
  9. @Allvor u cant get the ALV drop if you hold your xrp on a nano ledger s, can you?
  10. well, since we're putting down some dots THC uses Vocalink Marcus is on board of THC as independent director. https://ripple.com/insights/ripple-executive-marcus-treacher-appointed-chaps-board THC is working with both IBM and Vocalink - for domestic RTP (not Ripple's territory) Ryan Zagone is on a Faster Payment Task Force, amongst 100 others, including 3 guys from vocalink https://fedpaymentsimprovement.org/wp-content/uploads/fptf-member-roster.pdf both use the same advisor http://lipisadvisors.com/our-clients/ The way I see it, vocalink is the domestic RTP solution where Ripple targets the crossborder intercurrency solutions, they 'might' chose for ripple when it comes to crossborder transfers, but it will be working together with Vocalink. Does it matter? nah, knowing ripple - all we can do is connect some vague dots and then wait for the actual news to come. It shouldnt be used as 'hype', the reason to buy XRP shouldnt be in the news-to-come but in the news that was already here and the future path it might take.

  12. Mastercard = Vocalink Mastercard is the drive for a collection of banks in europe for instant payments the only link between vocalink and ripple is that ripple posted the whitepaper on a link with a news item on insights a few years ago - could very well just be a nice item at that time to 'show the world fintech is moving' and doesnt have to be linked to them directly - times were different bck then
  13. XRP doesnt rely on hype, it has actual fundamentals and volume driven usecase.. all you need is patience, and let them do their job correctly without them having to put their tools down to calm the crowd first. Speculate, fine - i love speculative talk - but forging fake news that could be easily debunked.. they are not run by some ****** dev that caves in saying 'ahh you caught us, now we will come clean' on anything. Ripple has never broken any NDA and faking hype truely hurts the coin more than any fud you can find on the internet.
  14. i'm allergic to fake hype
