  1. IIRC Codius smart contracts are hosted. Putting smart contracts on a decentralised chain is expensive. Not everything needs to be decentralised.
  2. Sure, taxes flow in. Thing is: If you can't operate without the ability to take on cheap debt, you essentially live entirely on debt. The US goverment is technically insolvent. It's a zombie enterprise on a whole new level. Meaning it has to rely on loans and defecits, to maintain operations. But the US can always raise the taxes, you say. Like the US Government, 20% of US listed Corps are also insolvent. It's a house of cards. All this to say; We don't dont hate American's, we are merely asking for a little modesty. *peace out*
  3. If you are referring to the US Dollar hegemony: It's only a golden goose for (a select few) Americans. This is all slowly coming to an end. There is no stopping it, although im sure the US will try at all costs.
  4. i did. thanks for confirming my point with your wikipedia page. shall we leave it here. As i said: I expect Flare to sort you out.
  5. If you look at the stats as % of gni, the US ranks extremely low mate. Bottom of the list kind of stuff. One might wonder if you are even participating.. https://public.tableau.com/views/ODA_GNI/ODA2020?:language=fr&:display_count=y&publish=yes&:origin=viz_share_link?&:showVizHome=no#1 Yes, do the world a favor and ''settle up'': https://ticdata.treasury.gov/Publish/mfh.txt Here's some other stats that a person like you needs to see: US ranks 17th in ''the freedom index'' (lol) https://www.cato.org/sites/cato.org/files/2021-03/human-freedom-index-2020.pdf US ranks 38th in ''the good country index'' > https://index.goodcountry.org/
  6. US taxpayers need to take it up a notch if they want to receive a ''thank you'': https://www.usdebtclock.org/ The debt is mostly owed to China. How to say thank you in Chinese? On topic: I think it's likely Flare will come with a solution for all that are worried about taxes. Time will tell.
  7. Source please. I'll call bulshit right now, since these statistics don't exist. I feel Flare should look into feasability of launching all tokens at zero with release schedule intact, but djees can you Americans cut down on the entitlement? The world doesn't care about you. BTW, I hear nothing about this: It's actually good for the network if FLR changes hands to an actual buyer from the get-go.
  8. What he actually wanted to answer there: Libertarians hate the fact that we own the vast majority of the supply because that goes against the whole thesis of crypto. Besides that Developers dont wanna work on XRP because they'd rather work on a network where they can get ownership of a large proportion of the Coins just like my boss did. But that doesnt sound good coming from a CTO, so he came up with the analogy.
  9. They get their info from sophisticated research entities. Everybody in the cryptospace hates Ripple. XRP still going to moon regardless of what OG cryptonerds think though.
  10. Good work i guess, but is there anyone who actually falls for this ''900% growth'' marketing?
  11. Reading this in 2017 it would give me reason to buy a cryptocurrency that was already out for years and never had an ICO.
  12. yes you can. The only purpose of this whole ordeal is to send a message to the judge. Call it a scream for help/sympathy. This case has little legal merit, but I don't think the judge will completely ignore 10.000 people asking for clarity.
  13. at current pace (9.2m) it's going to take 251 days.
  14. First thing I thought aswell. Ripple is expected to be amongst the first crypto unicorns to go public.
  15. a good backstory: https://www.theatlantic.com/politics/archive/2021/02/why-democrats-are-split-over-potential-biden-pick-michael-barr/618056/
  16. For the ones complaining Gensler wasn't pro crypto enough during his nomination hearing, this is what you get when you are considered pro crypto.
  17. This whole ordeal is looking more and more like an episode of Suits. Play the game in grey area's during discovery, until either one of the parties caves and accepts the worse end of the settlement.
  18. luckily for zerpfans, BTC has no intention of stopping here
  19. 1. If you buy a big amount OTC, it is very common to get a discount because you take on risk with vesting. That discount shares the risk between buyer and seller. Basic stuff. 2. Here you described basically everyone holding crypto not actively developing. 3. Looking at the facts: Ripple hasn't actually been selling XRP on the market for a year. XRP flowing in the market through odl is net zero. 4. It's called confirmation bias. You show exactly the same qualities, but steer your emotions to the other side of the coin. 5. The truth is a: XRP was participating fine in the bullrun before SEC ruined it, and b: bull market or not, XRP will melt faces once this SEC debacle is settled or Ripple decides to move to Asia. Try to get some nuance in your thinking bro.
  20. I'm with you. Just seems good to introduce another angle for people with pitchforks ready to tar & feather Clayton.
