  1. Some guy randomly predicted escrow and an Indian bank buying XRP on12/11. Not sure but it could be that.
  2. @zenkert IMO - There is a really low barrier to entry for new users compared to other exchanges. And it's not as cluttered as other sites, which could appeal from a UX/UI. I know I like the look compared to others.
  3. Santander, AMEX, Ripple

    Yeah, that was certainly a long project, in crypto world terms. HODLing without any reservations. I'm just curious what KPIs/benchmarks that AMEX needs to see/reach for full XRP adoption. (IE: $100B moved successfully) My guess is that it still boils down to regulations. Once those are sorted, then they flip the switch.
  4. Santander, AMEX, Ripple

    I think we're all on the same page when it comes to understanding that this is good news and that we're excited Ripple/AMEX are moving forward together. One thing that I would like to know, is how long Ripple and AMEX have been working together. When did they start the project? Additionally, what is the normal length of time that a major credit card company tests their new technology, before implementing another branch? (XRP liquidity) I can imagine that the answer to question two depends on regulations, in addition to performance of the existing technology.
  5. Exactly right. The Koch's own the republican party.
  6. I noticed it too today. It seems both have been relatively flat for four days. I've got no scientific method to back this up; purely anecdotal from viewing the charts.

  8. Photos from SWELL

    Love seeing big *** fans making an appearance at SWELL. https://www.bigassfans.com/
  9. Am I the only one?

    It's frustrating for sure. That said, it may not be due to anything in Ripple's control. This has been discussed elsewhere but most speculation is that the keynote speaker's contracts limit what can be streamed.
  10. Am I the only one?

    Hey @rainbowhunter, not at this time. Based on the agenda, and based on the fact that they won't live stream the keynote speakers, I suspect that we won't get a live feed until after Bernake finishes his keynote.
  11. Good catch @invest2lose From the article: "Other speakers at Swell will include Brad Garlinghouse, CEO, Ripple; Amit Sethi, CIO, Axis Bank; Tom Jessop, president, Chain Inc.; Kristen Michaud, managing director for treasury operations at GE Capital; Brian Behlendorf, executive director, Hyperledger; Ed Metzger, head of innovation, Santander and Dr. Arak Sutivong, head of strategy, Siam Commercial Bank." Brad is also listed on the Ripple Swell Blog post: https://ripple.com/insights/news/announcing-swell-by-ripple/ Although he is still missing from the official agenda: https://swell.ripple.com/agenda/ My guess is that he is going to take the stage in spectacular fashion and finally 'let the cat out of the bag'.
  12. Thanks @Hodor! It looks like I have my reading cut out for me.
  13. Nice find @smokeyjefferson8467 Did you mean to say 'Swell' making Forbes headlines?
  14. The announcement this week about dLab and their high volume transaction customers (Uber for example) made me think about the Ripple quoted 1500 tps limit. If performance is perfect and true to that number, with no down time, that means 90,000 t/minute, 5.4 mm t/hour and 129,600,000 mm t/day. Companies like Uber do millions of rides/transactions per day. As more and more companies and FIs adopt the Ripplenet suite of tools, is it possible that transaction demand could exceed network capacity? If so, what are the constraints on TPS? Is it node based? Has this question been asked already? Obviously, the Ripple team has probably already thought about this, but I tried to find a discussion here and my search didn’t yield any results.
