  1. Enjoyed your latest blog, Hodor. I particularly liked the way you mention, almost in passing, the fact that NYSE is owned by ICE. Such understatement makes me smile. Thank you!
  2. Not a summary, no, but Dan Morgan does quote from a recent report of Central Banking's Committee on Market Payments and Infrastructure, saying that when it comes to cross-border payments: Oh, how we chortled. The Committee has been nominated for, and will win hands down, the Understatement Of The Year Award for 2019, 2020, 2021 and Beyond. Patience. Keep the faith. HODL
  3. Thanks Mom. Regulation - or rather the lack of it - still seems to be the elephant in the room, but one thing I've acquired with age is patience. Amazon wasn't built in a day...
  4. For ******** read the waste material that comes from the back end of a bull.
  5. Thanks for sharing. Gottfried is working way too hard to try and look totally relaxed about the whole thing. I don't buy it. He also talks too much. The game's up and he knows it. That horse and pony v Ferrari line from Brad Garlinghouse. Thanks be to all the Celtic gods that he never made the comparison using that dread word, Lamborghini. From 17' 05" to 17' 35" Brad Garlinghouse calls out SWIFT's ******** for what it is - ******** - in 30 seconds flat.
  6. This is only here to tempt the whales - not to mention all the sharks - that are circling. Keep the faith. The business is sound, the fundamentals strong and the leadership solid.
  7. Given the way in which the reciprocating mower has superseded the scythe I believe that, in due course, it will. Why? Well, perhaps the clue is in the word 'reciprocal'... The above quote is from the Old Lawn Mower Club and refers to the original inventor Edward Bear Budding of Stroud, Gloucestershire, who had the business acumen to do what he did. I believe Brad Garlinghouse has embraced a similar long-term philosophy when it comes to large scale adoption of xrp as a bridging currency. Just my 2xrp's worth. https://www.oldlawnmowerclub.co.uk/aboutmowers/history
  8. And there, I would suggest, is the fundamental difference between chalk and cheese, especially when it comes from someone who worked at Swift for 20 years. Electric motor cars? Nah, they'll never catch on ...
  9. The small yet crucially important word "all" seems to have escaped your attention there, @jabit.
  10. Since when did banks lose interest in improving their bottom line? I always thought that was their very raison d'être. Anyway, I'm not here to argue. Time will tell.
  11. It was equally simple for me but not quite so smooth. I've contacted Ledger who tell me that it's nothing to do with them, but I should still like to know who took 20 xrp off me to open an account I already have on my Nano S. To add insult to injury I was charged 41.21 GBP for it. Given that one xrp = £0.28 or thereabouts, something smells fishy here. Someone, somewhere, is ripping me off.
  12. Thanks for getting back to me. Not only did they take 20 xrp off me but they've charged me 41.12 GBP for the privilege. Is it Nano who's done this? If so, am I able to send them a screenshot of the actual transaction - which has both 'from' and 'to' addresses on it as well as the transaction number and date - or is that giving the game away?
  13. Ah yes, compromise. In a world where dog continues to eat dog it is the one given that - sadly - has yet to catch on. Give it time. We're still evolving as a species.
