  1. Photos from SWELL

    Love seeing big *** fans making an appearance at SWELL. https://www.bigassfans.com/
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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'.
  5. Thanks @Hodor! It looks like I have my reading cut out for me.
  6. Nice find @smokeyjefferson8467 Did you mean to say 'Swell' making Forbes headlines?
  7. 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.

  9. Promoting Ripple at all costs

    Well said. I probably would not be here if it wasn’t for @Hodor. My initial research included reading many of his blog posts. Keep up the great work man. Also, circling back to the genesis of the topic: I was in an Apple store yesterday charging my phone and decided to open XRP CHAT on any available iPhones. It’s definitely not a scalable way to get the word out, but if one person opened up Safari, saw XRP CHAT and ends up here, then it was worth it.
  10. Ah, you're right. I vaguely remember that from somewhere in the XRP CHAT information highway... I think seeing Brad confirm it, encourage us to 'stay tuned!', in addition to teasing an announcement, made it all the more real for me.
  11. Quoting the quote... This is really exciting for a number of reasons. As someone that is not in the FinTech space, I appreciate having access to the actual event.
