  1. It does not mean that they *won't* be added to the mainnet, just that they don't *need* to be added to the mainnet. The purpose of sidechains is that it gives a lot more flexibility. -Matt
  2. Today, RippleX is rolling out a community page on Dev To aimed at engaging the growing XRP Ledger Community. Our inaugural post was written by David Schwartz, CTO at Ripple and one of the original architects of the XRP Ledger, and introduces his vision for Federated Sidechains. Developers around the world are invited to share ideas, provide feedback, ask questions and join the discussion. Together, we look forward to building trust and utility for the XRP Ledger. https://dev.to/ripplexdev/a-vision-for-federated-sidechains-on-the-xrp-ledger-2o7o
  3. [cross post from General] Hello world! We're pleased to announce something special that we've been preparing for the past couple months: XRPL Grants! This is a new program to support the XRP community by funding developers and projects directly. Unlike any prior initiative, XRPL Grants is primarily targeting individual developers and very small dev teams, in the earliest stages of building the next big thing. We know that many types of projects don't have a clear business model, especially in the early days. There are also lots of needs in the open source community, which don't directly lead to users or revenue, but are critically important to evolving the network and fostering innovative use cases. Those are the projects we want to support! There's more we can say, and we look forward to discussing in more detail today and in the weeks ahead. Find out more at: https://xrplgrants.org/ I'm doing a live chat AMA-type thing today on the RippleX Developer livestream: 11 AM British Summer Time (10:00 UTC) 11 AM Pacific Daylight Time (18:00 UTC) Come chat to us at: https://www.twitch.tv/ripplexdev

  6. That is an awesome idea, I like it! I'll add it to the list and see what we can arrange. Coil has just appointed this week a Director of Developer Relations (my role at RippleX) whom I've very much looking forward to chatting with once he's found his feet in Coil to see what synergies there are for our work. -Matt

    Hi All! So.... I've not been on here for about a year, as got a bit bored of same old discussions, mostly hype around price... anyway, just came back to answer a DM someone sent me about PayID and noticed this.... Hahahahahahahahahahah! The world has a sense of humour! I'm also aware that by posting this message it will likely destroy my perfect reputation. -Matt
  11. Hi! The backslash in there is needed as it is a regular expression, and + means something specific in regexes (matches one or more of the previous item). I don't see anything obvious otherwise in your setup. Someone has created a validator tool, you can try at: https://payidvalidator.com/ -Matt
  12. I applied a couple of months ago: https://discourse.elixxir.io/t/node-application-10582939893-submitted-2019-03-10-1622/211 Not heard anything since, but Elixxir does look pretty interesting. -Matt
  13. Wow. Thank you very much for your kind words. This is the reason why I like doing chats and videos like this. I think I have a knack for explaining things. It also force *me* to understand them. If I can't explain it adequately to someone else... I don't understand it well enough myself. And in terms of potential and scope... yeah! There is so much potential there. And that is only the things we can think of. As David Schwartz says, there are so many things we can't even conceive of yet when we can transfer money like information. -Matt
  14. Hi all, last night I had an amazing chat with a chap called Bitcoin Ben about XRP. He is a LTC and BTC supporter... a 'regular guy', who is really interested in crypto and has his own Youtube show. We had a blast... and talked for over 2 hours (grab a long coffee or a case of beer for this one!). We talked about all sorts, XRP, the XRP ledger, Coil, Kava labs, Ripple, etc. Ben asked a bunch of really good questions that gave me a good opportunity to explain things about how it all works and how everything fits together. Oh... and the best bit? He is a Coil subscriber now so he will actually be getting paid XRP when Coil subscribers watch his video! Enjoy!
  15. I had my differences with P3T3RIS here on xrpchat and on Twitter.... but regardless of that, he was a fellow human being and for that I'm very saddened to hear he passed away. -Matt
