  1. The one statement of fact amid all this speculation. Perhaps it's time for a change?
  2. The poster to whom you refer may just be wired that way ...
  3. Thank you so much, Tripple, for your comprehensive response to my question. I shall do as you suggest and open an account with them.
  4. Thanks for the tip, Tripple. I've been away from this site for quite a while and must admit that I know nothing of Uphold. I have been using Bitstamp which I'm told is 100% secure, but this sounds like better value and, frankly, a lot less hassle as it deals in GBP. However, before I sign up for an account, two obvious but rather necessary questions: 1. Is it as secure as Bitstamp? 2. Is there a useful 'how to' page? Thanks in advance.
  5. 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!
  6. 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
  7. 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...
  8. For ******** read the waste material that comes from the back end of a bull.
  9. 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.
  10. Given the way in which the reciprocating mower has superseded the scythe I believe that, in due course, it will.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
  11. 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 ...
  12. The small yet crucially important word "all" seems to have escaped your attention there, @jabit.
