  1. Wow, this could really drag on: "all discovery shall be completed no later than August 16, 2021. However, the Individual Defendants request that the Proposed Order provide that the Individual Defendants and the SEC may conduct additional discovery until 120 days following the Court’s ruling on any motion(s) to dismiss filed by the Individual Defendants." Who blinks first?
  2. Maybe it's my OCD kicking in but just I noticed something strange. I went back only as far as page 686, and counted over two dozen posts by Jack21 with his avatar registering a consistent 224, and never increasing. What am I missing or is Jack a slick hacker in our midst?
  3. While the SEC suit really dragged xrp down in the short term, I believe that a lot of people see that there's enormous potential for what a good outcome will mean. Additionally, not only does the SEC's lawsuit look to have some major holes in it, (FINCEN etc) there seems to be a common belief emerging that a negative outcome would cripple much of the entire crypto field, and that this won't be allowed to happen. Looking at it in another way, it feels like a 50/50 bet where risking a moderate amount of money now has the potential for an enormous payout later - especially now that FLR is coming
  4. Another very interesting read on their website is the following: https://www.jdsupra.com/legalnews/us-credit-card-company-to-integrate-52241/ My take-away from this "no-action letter" is that they seek to constrain digital assets to a network which is only involved in money transfer: "The company will not promote or support listing or trading of the digital asset on any third-party trading platform." And... "Users who purchase the digital asset from the company will be required to affirm that they are acquiring the digital asset for consumptive use and not for speculative purposes."
  5. If these programmatic sales were engineered prior to XRP's 30,000% run up in price, do they then still look so out of whack, or only now that xrp's price isn't preceded by a 0.0000 something? As I've stated before, if they can make their ideas work, by putting in the hard work that's necessary to build out the foundation required to bring them to fruition, then why should I be in the least bit concerned by how generously they choose to reward themselves? My 'investment' was based upon my perception of how revolutionary I believe their ideas to be, and upon how capable I believe their team is,
  6. Would those same sales appear so "un-ethical" if, from the outset, a less than 0.1% sales strategy was agreed upon as compensation for bringing this whole idea to fruition? Before xrp appreciated by some 30,000%, those same sales wouldn't have appeared nearly as excessive as they do now. If they indeed had some programattic sales plan, do we now begrudge them for not having downgraded it as xrp skyrocketed in value? From my very first explorations of Ripple's endeavors, to me, it was a case of going big with the 100 billion xrp, in an attempt to capture an enormous chunk of the global money tr
  7. "It is essential that the SEC approach these new challenges in a fair and transparent manner, provide clarity and certainty to the markets and investors, and enforce the laws and regulations that hold market participants accountable." Chervinsky hasn't a clue what Roisman will or won't do, and to assert that this change in leadership won't have any impact is pure speculation. And that the "enforcement lawyers" are ultimately going to determine whether or not Roisman won't look to broker a solution, simply because they're "...here to stay," is utterly ridiculous.
  8. I don't necessarily disagree, however, if the author's first language isn't English, then this wouldn't be so unusual. What intrigue's me, is his mention of the escrow, which I've felt all along would be Ripple's biggest sticking point in getting a regulatory green flag. The SEC knows good and well what giving Ripple regulatory clarity would do to the price appreciation of xrp, and I can only imagine that they've been wildly reluctant to do so, if only from the standpoint of how much that would ultimately make their escrow worth. Not to mention the SEC's fears of triggering a flight from the U
  9. I found the "Unknown" post very intriguing, (language difficulties aside) including the author's reference to "...a much larger fiat issue." His assertion that the escrow was the catalyst makes sense to me, especially if the SEC anticipated that large scale adoption was about to occur. If this individual actually has any inside perspective on this at all, then I've gotta wonder if, similar to the flare distribution, that a similar disbursement was being considered for the escrow, as opposed to merely burning it. "Escrow should come to all of you, I apologize if I didn’t read it somewhere, this
  10. I agree as Ripple has been working for years to get this resolved. This might be a brilliant move on their part to actually force the issue; especially if they believe that they're on the cusp of a major breakout of adoption. It's possible that they revealed their intentions of moving forward in very specific manners, knowing that this would necessarily trigger an immediate reaction. There's no way that this issue can be ignored any longer, especially with the changing of the guard within the SEC - it's going to be dumped right in the lap of whomever takes over: day one. I think that this is c
  11. Wow, what an impressive resource - The Library of Congress is a treasure-trove of information: nothing else like it. With that being said, and although the title includes "...around the World." it struck me that neither the U.S. or Canada was on such an extensive list. Made me wonder if they've got something similar under a different heading....I guess I'll have to get off my a** and put in a little effort.... [Update]: I found a great resource: https://blogs.loc.gov/law/2020/10/united-states-blockchain-and-cryptocurrency-resources/
  12. The volume is now over half that of btc and now exceeds eth, at a price holding at around .50. Am I the only one who views this as a positive sign? Despite the F***ed up regulatory situation here in the U.S., Ripple; and in particular SBI; is brokering deals on a nearly constant basis. Although I fear that the 800 pound gorilla in the room is the U.S.'s reliance on SWIFT to enable them to be the financial bully of the world via sanctions, compounded by their fear of a flight from the dollar, the genie is out of the bottle. Ripple might well have to pack up shop and move their HQ to Singapore,
  13. I have to wonder if he isn't using a bunch of his proceeds from xrp and buying back into xlm? Just as stock buy-backs are often thought of as a means to prop up a stock's price, what if Jed has been doing this to make it appear as if xlm is doing better than it really is? Both the circulating supply and daily volume is such that I'd think that a constant stream of buying on his part could at least add support to the price of xlm. If my math's correct, xlm's volume is only about 1/8th that of xrp. I don't follow their news, but I don't recall ever reading that Stellar has anything even appro
  14. Years back, I read a very interesting analyst's review of companies that had achieved great success and accordingly, whose stock prices ultimately went on to reflect their "game changing" ideas. His observations really struck me, as I had gotten in, and then back out, of multipe great companies over the years, but had invariably cashed out too soon. Apple, Netflix, and Facebook but to name a few. What he identified was a pattern whereby early speculation would result in excitement and a significant run-up in price, only to be followed shortly by a consolidation of typically greater than 70%, o
  15. I'm of the feeling that due to the huge increases in the liquidity within the ODL corridors, that this will result in significantly increased utility within each corridor. At some point, this should result in more support going forward, even when speculation is the driving force behind these increases. I'd then expect to see a fairly consistent pattern of higher lows without as many big retractions following these run-ups. More of a sawtooth pattern up, or even sideways, with only an occasional sawtooth down. We'll see....
