    Banned from /r/ripple on reddit

    People should just move to the XRP subreddit anyways, since that's really what we want to talk about in the end.

    massive money moved on XRP ledger...

    But couldn't they negotiate a contract between a group , institution or exchange and Jed where he sells the whole stash for a reduced price.? Jed might be interested in moving on and selling the whole thing instead of just selling parts of it every once in a while?

    So what's the acceptable number? Bezos is worth 157 billion and before that we had Bill at 95. So is the next acceptable step 500 billion?

  5. So what do you people think about this?
  6. That's a nice find. I think what was said by previous posters makes it so that the dots are easy to connect here. Little hints everywhere. Guys fill up your bags because the zerpening is about to happen. Just ask Weiss ratings!! ??

    President Bill Clinton Keynotes Swell 2018

    This is great news. I got into xrp just before Jed left and that was a little scary to be honest. And to think that Bill Clinton is a speaker at Ripple's own conference 5 years later is just crazy. At their OWN conference a president of the United States, with a lot of connections with people with huuuuge stacks of money, will be speaking. Let that sink in. No other crypto currency has a company behind it making similar moves.
  8. Let me be honest (but not serious) here some of you are being super Canadian by saying it's okay if XLM suceeds but for old XRP timers it's a slap in the face every time XLM price gets closer to XRP.
  9. Nothing is rational about the cryptoverse. Just look at how the Brainstorm tech panel was analyzed by both tribes (xlm and xrp). On the xrp side comments were about how Asheesh crushed the IBM rep lady and how the stable coin announcement is nothing revolutionary and could even be a huge risk in a bear market . On the xlm side it was all about how amazing the IBM rep did on the panel and how this news was a huge stepping stone for Stellar. The disparity in perceptions and how this could influence new investors who read these threads, sub reddits pseudo crypro blogs is kind of crazy.

    A Canadian Bank, CIBC with Ripple

    I brought this up last year and David Schwartz even replied and confirmed they were working with them. Here is the thread.

    Did anybody else know this???

    The thing is you come to the forum with almost no reputation to post the information with an alarming tone and this has been happening a lot lately. Seeing new members is not uncommon but most of them seem to have the same pattern as your post. As far as your post I wouldn't connect the dots that way for now. SBI seems to be ahead of the curve in regards to crypto, they have been heavily invested in Ripple and xrp for a while now after all. ?
  12. To me the person being interviewed seems to be downplaying what is actually going on. Like some previous poster mentioned before, WU can't go out there praising Ripple and loose the small window they might have for competitive advantage. Even if they are investing in other startups the fact of the matter is that the marathon started 5 years ago and Ripple was on the starting line at that time. The quality man power and money needed to catch up to Ripple is beyond huge. The banks, FIs and other businesses will need a protocol and softwares that are standardized to facilitate communication between each other and I believe that Ripple and XRP will be that standard. WU is facing and important decision and they have until the end of the year to make it. To be honest I think they already decided, they just don't want to tell us.
  13. I have a hard time believing anyone will make investment decisions based on his posts. That being said what would be the point of exposing him. The guy is bullish on XRP, seems to connect a lot of dots and is entertaining people with his riddles. If you don't like it just ignore the sub reddit or his tweets. For me BG's posts are like Nostradamus'prediction, just parabolas that can be used to prove anything. They all make sense once the event has occurred but good luck trying to really predict something with them. In the end what I'm trying to say is it's all non sense but people are having fun. Don't be a party pooper. Live and let live.

    BTC supply vs Xrp supply

    Isn't the whole point to show that the argument that "XRP will never reach a high price because of market cap" can be argued through this type of reasoning? The only reason XRP needs to attain a higher price is for liquidity purposes. Thus, we will send fiat or other assets through XRP and maybe liquidity will be high enough that to send 100$ to a friend you will use 0.5 xrp. So some transactions will only use drops. This is simple and I think we can all agree on that. So the day might come were we won't even say send me "x" XRP but we might say send me "x.7" drops. So forget BTC and XRP. They don't exist anymore. In 2045 people call them satoshis and drops. Ok back on topic. Often in price related discussion some might come with the argument I mentioned at the beginning of my post. Most of the time BTC will be used as a reference point in terms of overall supply. What is asked in this discussion is that instead at looking at 21 million BTC vs 100 billion XRP one should look more in terms of smallest divisible unit to compare overall supply. If that is being done then the difference in total supply is not as high as one might originally think. So price predictions in the 200s$ are not as far fetched as we might think. I might be wrong and it's not the end of the world. However, I would like to point out that what started as a pretty polite and constructive discussion seem to be getting a little bit aggressive with some of the posts that are slightly condescending. We have a great community here, maybe one of the best in all crypto projects, let's try to keep it that way. Cheers!
