  1. Nailed it again @Tinyaccount Now I know almost nothing about computer technology, but I am able to recognise behaviour that borders on bullying. Please @TheXRPer , for the sake of the wellbeing of this forum, take a step back and adjust your tone in future posts. We are all in this journey of XRP's rise together and I would rather see informative posts (for dummies like me) that have no overtly aggressive tone. There is no need for it.

    Zerpening Club Invitations

    Haha it's like the Hotel California : you can check in, but you can never leave!
  4. Wow, to my surprise I have just heard our new PM is looks favourably on blockchain and wants Australia to gain efficiencies in certain markets. He particularly noted the banking and power industries as possible targets for efficiency gains. https://www.ccn.com/nerdy-australian-pm-pushes-blockchain-agenda-to-take-on-big-banks/

    FUD or FED?

    Arrghh! I really don’t have time to get into an argument with you but seriously, this comment reinforces my low opinion of your value to this forum.

    FUD or FED?

    Yes there is the Zerpbox for chat, I will grant you that, and it absolutely has it's place on this forum as a chat room for serious discussion as well as the odd amusing moments. I lurk there often as well as other parts of this forum and enjoy it for what it is. I consider the Zerpening a much more friendly, easygoing place to read amusing as well as informative posts. It is not an every minute cheering/dreaming club. That is simply not true, it is a fooling around/joking/sometimes very informative place, and that works for it's members. It serves a purpose for them. You are right in that they celebrate bronze/gold etc, but I still say the reaction counts are a direct result of banter and I have yet to see one of the Gold/Silver members using their credibility here irresponsibly. This forum is called XRP chat, and therefore you are going to, mostly, find people here that are pro XRP and will argue against people being negative if they cannot supply a reasonable argument for their negative posts. There most certainly are people who post here with an agenda, but the gold members of the Zerpening are not among them. I don't often engage because my life is crazy busy, and if I make a statement, (like I did last night here with you), I often don't have a chance to come back and reply or argue my point for many hours. I am commenting here and then leaving for a day of driving for work, so please don't take my lack of any further response as being rude or admitting you are right.
  7. Ahh yes true, Cory is very good at what he does, but he is an employee of Ripple. I was thinking you would have some interesting questions from the perspective of an XRP investor and enthusiast

    @vsyc, I see you are Zerpening bashing again ..... maybe it is time you let it go. FED is nowhere near a description of what the Zerpening is about. The posters there are exactly the same as most people on this forum - investors who see a very good chance of an excellent outcome with their choice of XRP and are enthusiastic about it. It is used more as a general chat room, so therefore the reaction counts for the regular contributors is high. It is not a case of like baiting at all, rather a great place to hang and banter with likeminded people. To get back on OP's question, as far as FED goes, I am going to assume you are referring to the positive thoughts of posters on this forum. In response to that, I say that if you truly look at the use case of XRP, the team behind the product, and how much the ecosystem has grown in the past 12months, being optimistic is understandable. Most people understand $589 is a pipe dream short term but who can say what the next few years hold? The current price is not a true indicator of the prospects of XRP, and one must remember we are in the infancy stage of a world changing technology.
  9. Thank you Hodor for another educational and interesting read. You are the master of compiling relevant information and presenting it in a well thought out and easy to read manner. I would love to see you interview David Schwartz in a AMA situation. It would be epic!
  10. OK, I am just going to believe that it is the language barrier that is the problem here and leave you alone @vsyc. Good luck with your investments.
  11. "I would have sold in Jan, but they told HODL". then later "Lies, lies, lies." There is heaps more but I can't be bothered going through it. I get it, and I appreciate that you are frustrated and I think sometimes your meaning gets lost in the language barrier and you don't necessarily mean to sound as you do. But you cannot blame other peoples opinions and posts for your decisions. I wish I had of sold some in January to get some profit too, but that was MY decision not to.
  12. I saw the stuff you and he were saying on the Zerpbox earlier today, and hearing you call someone else desperate or quoting out of context is a joke.
  13. OOL. Yeah I have heard you are supposed to keep emotions out of investments, and I have failed miserably here because I fully believe we are on a winner and am ridiculously happy to be able to buy more at a cheap price. I understand that it is a gamble though and I am not spending money that is going to break me if it goes to 0. I have lost nothing yet because I have no need to sell. I commiserate with the people that are not so lucky but don't see how Chewie or anyone else on this board can be blamed for vocalising their belief in this investment. We are all supposed to be grown ups here in charge of our own fate.
