  1. When Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) Division of Corporation Finance Director William Hinman gave his opinion this summer that ether — the native asset of the Ethereum platform — was not a security under federal law, he listed among his justifications the fact that, although ether was originally distributed through a token sale, it has become substantially decentralized in the years since its network launch. Since then, supporters of XRP, the third-largest cryptocurrency, have sought to demonstrate that the token — colloquially referred to as “ripple” due to its close association with the blockchain startup of the same name — is sufficiently decentralized to evade the security classification as well. Ripple CEO Brad Garlinghouse made this argument in a recent interview with financial news outlet Cheddar. Garlinghouse, who was speaking on the sidelines of the Ripple-sponsored industry conference “Swell” in San Francisco, said that he believes XRP is “very clearly decentralized.” Source : https://www.ccn.com/xrp-is-very-clearly-decentralized-ripple-ceo-brad-garlinghouse/
  2. 45 percent of 700 “global payments professionals” who took part in Ripple’s Blockchain in Payments Report are in the process of adopting the technology. RIPPLE: ADOPTION ‘TIPPING POINT’ IS ‘FAST APPROACHING’ That was according to the results of the first mass survey undertaken by the company which it unveiled at its Swell 2018 conference October 1 -2. Focusing on the payments sector, the Report painted a buoyant outlook for Blockchain, Ripple says, officials describing the findings as suggesting the “tipping point for mass adoption” is “fast approaching.” “There’s a lot of money at stake,” chief market strategist Corey Johnson commented while presenting the results at Swell.

    You can literally taste the salt.

    That's also my point of view. In any case, Ripple must probably be disturbing for journalists to persist in misinformation. The title looks good and as soon as you read the article it's mitigated or even completely false...

  5. Former U.S. President Bill Clinton didn't have to say much when he delivered the keynote at Ripple's Swell conference in San Francisco. And indeed, he barely said anything relevant to the blockchain industry. The 42nd commander in chief has long been recognized for his rhetorical prowess, but there was little pressure on him to rouse or inspire the audience at Ripple's event. He was sending a message on Ripple's behalf simply by appearing on stage. Specifically, the company was saying: Ripple is the kind of company that can book Clinton to speak. https://www.coindesk.com/with-rambling-clinton-keynote-ripple-is-sending-a-clear-message/

    Time to focus on Ripple & XRP ?

    I don't know why all these journalists are preaching the fake and the FUD. Thank you all for correcting so that people know the truth. I am confident that Ripple will eventually have the much expected and deserved success.

    Yes, sorry. I made a "Control C / Control V" of the text... 😰
  10. It’s not all about the bitcoin! Looking at the rating of currencies, no matter how we filter them, XRP is growing - a token owned by the largest banking consortium, which is in a state of a permanent transition into a new payment system. If you look at alternative assets and try to predict which of them will survive, then you should look at XRP. Everything in the cryptocurrency market is unpredictable - XRP has every chance to show good results in the coming year. When describing of the development history of popular cryptocurrencies, it’s impossible to avoid noticing that the same people are involved. So, behind Ripple, stands Jeff McCalib. He is also known to the old people that lived before the internet as the creator of eDonkey, and for the veterans of the crypto market — as the creator of Mt.Gox, and today for McCalib - the founder of Stellar. Whatever it is, all of his offspring, except maybe Mt.Gox, which is still grabbing the daily headlines - are all flourishing. Ripple is no exception. Ripple can be described as a payment system for professional market players. Yesterday's technology makes inter-bank transactions expensive, long and inconvenient and Ripple solves this problem. In essence, this is an attempt to build a universal protocol to gain access to the global financial market. Ripple accepts payment identification, currency exchange, delivery, and all this on our favorite blockchain. If before, entering the market to make cross-border multi-payment was difficult, now, the financial issue is becoming technical. So, just join the system, and freely send money back and forth. It is a consortium of major players participating in the RippleNet system that gives hope that an increase in the volume of funds and companies willing to become part of the process will lead to an increase in the price assets. It would take a long time to go through all the brands: MoneyGram, the money transfer system, Santander and Unicredit banks, American Express and others - every day more are joining. It is not surprising either, the new world requires new solutions since the old ones are no longer suitable. As in any other blockchain, Ripple has its own cryptocurrency - XRP, which is designed to serve, perhaps not as a stablecoin, but a bridge, for transactions between different currencies. XRP is an independent token which is traded on the market, and more recently, it has shown moderate growth following the good news. It would seem that here we have a banking consortium, a cryptocurrency that can be used in large volumes - and we have - the next bitcoin. But there is a catch - to use XRP you do not have to use RippleNet and vice versa. These are two different products. There are a lot of complaints regarding XRP. Not everything is so smooth with decentralization - a large amount of tokens belongs to the system, an even a larger amount remains frozen. Once a month, a million new tokens appear on the market - which makes price predictions, very unpredictable - what we are seeing now with a price jump is not a fair reflection of the market growth, but someone's manipulation. Of course, if you wish, you can find a gate or a payment system that will allow you to make a purchase - but this will be a quasi-transaction: XRP is not a real cryptocurrency, and will never be that.

  11. XRP sprang back to life in September despite a relatively bearish broader market. Over the course of the 30-day period, the price of the world's largest cryptocurrency, bitcoin (BTC), dipped a modest 5 percent. Most cryptocurrencies succumbed to the same fate, but some were able to pick up a bid. However, none saw bigger gains than XRP, whose performance in September wasn't just bullish, it was record-setting. On September 21 alone, the price of XRP shot up more than 75 percent and ended the day with its most trading volume ever recorded on the popular cryptocurrency exchange, Bitfinex. Further, the explosive move allowed XRP to overtake ETH as the world's second largest cryptocurrency by market capitalization, a feat it last accomplished in December of 2017. It should be noted that the surge in price perhaps had some speculative backing. The price run-up in XRP was likely catalyzed by anticipation of Ripple's upcoming Swell conference scheduled to set off on Oct. 1. The conference is designed to highlight Ripple's product line and revved up investor interest last year ahead of its inaugural launch. Still, XRP concluded September boasting a near 80 percent month-over-month price increase to cement it as the best monthly performer out of the world's 25 largest cryptocurrencies by market capitalization.
