    Hi! I'm Bob

    Hi Bob and welcome! In answer to your question, YES PLEASE! As you can probably tell from the questions you have received so far, most people here would appreciate the opportunity to hear more about your experience of being involved with the growth of Ripple on a personal level, as well as technical information you could provide from your unique perspective as an engineer. You have already given us invaluable insight and I for one appreciate your efforts very much and look forward to your future endeavours. Thank you!
  2. You and everyone reading this thread know that what you call "the common sense" answer is not why you have done this. Get a life ...
  3. I agree, but Lubin was being sanctimonious and Brad nailed him with the truth. A beautiful moment as far as I am concerned
  4. Yep I can agree with you on that. It could go either way, that’s why I consider it an speculative investment. I don’t have a problem with anyone saying that because as you say, that is a fact. It is the tone of your posts and your attitude that the assumptions you make are correct ones that bother me. There definitely can and should be differing views and opinions but you are way too aggressive I think (Although I was impressed that you were able to insert an IMO in the above statement.) Try and do that more often and you may not get such negative reactions to your posts. (I’m not gonna comment on the crassness of part of your statement above, but maybe you should rethink that kind of talk also... just my opinion lol) I am only making these comments because there seems to be a lot of posters going on and on about how their opinions get shouted down if they speak against, or question the rosy future of XRP. Maybe if they re-thought how they express themselves, it wouldn’t happen so much .......
  5. Oh for Fks sake..... I was giving you the benefit of the doubt but this comment confirms many others opinion of your posting agenda. You seem to have a never ending supply of speculation that for some reason you consider fact.
  6. Ok, I get what you are saying, but IMO, you are letting the frustration of this prolonged bear market get in the way of critical thinking. When you say "everybody" was saying the price will go up during Swell, I believe you are generalising in the extreme. I recall a lot of posts around the time of Swell 2018 warning people not to get excited about price movement possibilities, but yes there was enthusiasm regarding what sort of announcements may be made, and rightly so as it turns out Yes, there is/was the expectation that xRapid would cause the price to rise, but if anyone thought that was going to happen within 2-3months of it going live, then their expectations were a little high I think. I know basically nothing about the financial/technological world but even I could see that it would probably take a while to ramp up, especially with the unsure regulatory environment we are stuck in. People say it all the time, but patience really is key. Nobody knows what is going to happen in this space for sure 2 weeks or even 2 days away so for you to keep saying vehemently that nothing will happen for years, and calling out people who have a more balanced view based on actual facts, is in my opinion, ill advised. I understand the frustration, but I really think there is no way you can say with authority that people are deluded for believing in and being patient with the progress of XRP.
  7. I’m just curious as to what makes you think you can make a statement like this, and then feel justified in ridiculing anyone that believes a large price increase is possible, if not probable. IMO one of these thoughts is based on information readily available that points to their considered conclusion, the other, not so much......... I’m not asking this to to join the bandwagon of people bagging you (even though I think that IS totally justified..), I am just genuinely curious as to how you justify it to yourself.
  8. 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.
  9. Jeez @Chewiecoin, great minds and all that .....
  10. Haha it's like the Hotel California : you can check in, but you can never leave!
  11. 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.
