  1. Something so sudden, although beneficial, COULD be considered a threat to "national security" to some. It would be like if we instantly had an easy source of cheap, renewable jet fuel. Might make some entities, ie governments, uncomfortable. From their view, it could be "best" not to acknowledge until they know how to slowly get on board. Would you call that a psychological barrier?
  2. I'm having a hard time rationalizing PoW power consumption. Maybe someone can add to this or help. Being pro-PoW doesn't inherently mean anti-environment or pro-excessive power consumption. The future consumption of PoW is clear and measurable, so what is PoW banking on? A limitless/clean supply of energy? Or that power consumption is a non-issue, given the potential benefits? I think there is an argument for a false dichotomy between PoW and power consumption, but with PoS available I think it can only help PoW to have a better answer.

    What is Ripple waiting on??

    I believe it's in Ripple's best interest to not be seen as a catalyst for XRP price movement. As many have said here, it's best (for us) to think of Ripple as a software company and XRP its preferred DA. If Ripple made more statements to influence the price, the community would praise/blame them for price manipulation. Best to let this unfold slowly, with speculative pumps along the way.

    xRapid Live Now !!!!!

    And the crowd goes mild. ?
  6. I could see something mental happening if there is a trifecta of: FOMO speculation, regulations solidified, and xRapid kicking in at the same time. I think we will see meteoric growth over the next 5-10 years, yes.
  7. I have always wanted to swing the sword on these kinds of rallies. Yes, I lost out on some big gains, but I am happy we are above $0.50 and holding.
  8. Realistically, I expect more teasers. I HOPE to get a definitive list of xRapid partners, and concrete results from any testing/trialing.
  9. I originally used Bitstamp to buy XRP, using Bitcoin I bought on C******e. I now use Uphold and buy with my bank account.
  10. I would love to hear Coil address this ideology / issue. It feels like a mistake. Unsettling.
