    Yes 
    If
    You held XRP at the date of the snap shot on 12/12/20 and it was on the Ledger. 
    Else
    no. 
    This is the only current chance as of now if I am not mistaking. If you've acquired XRP after the snapshot date there is no way to participate with your balance in the air drop.

    Moving overseas won't fix the fact that there still won't be liquidity on the US side, as many have said there must be enough liquidity on both sides of the transaction.
    If a move were to happen, I suppose they could focus on UK <> JPN, JPN <> KOR, JPN <> RMB, AUS <> RMB, type of corridors until the US gets its regulatory act together. Japan's largest trading partner is actually China, there's ~$300 billion in volume annually.
    If anything, there's more money going between Japan and China than Japan and the US, (only $200 billion annually). You could argue there's even more incentive for Ripple to get into the JPN <> RMB game, but I don't know how keen Chinese banks are to use US tech, obviously SBI Japan is on board.
    China has Ant Financial coming up too so who knows.
    MoneyGram is already using XRP commercially as a commodity, I really don't understand what more these bodies need to understand. The SEC hasn't shut down MoneyGram, it makes no sense unless there's backroom deals or just sloth, idk.

    I would applause a Japan move linking asia and the west. Japan has a huge problem with bureaucracy and slow implementation. The world is old and slow and I feel ripples move would excel things quite quickly. I don't think Japan will remain this way for much longer, like a rubber band that keeps beings stretched, but ripple could help launch it.  
     
    In my opinion, Japan is the kingdom of silos. Nothing is connected  and everything is private and independent.  Everything from it's banks, Internet (I once had to pay the ISP and the ISP's rail link providers in separate bills), public transport, there's always a couple of options completely segregated. Heck, even their electric system is divided with half the country running 60Hz and 50 Hz lol.  Ripple here in a perfect world of adoption domestically would be VERY advantageous in the remittance world. 
     
    We shall see, the statement by Brad is very hopeful either way for lighting a fire under sec and or moving the company forward.

    They were the first country to embrace bitcoin, their banks were among the first to adopt digital assets. They are going to be the first company paying dividends in XRP. They passed the first crypto regulations. Now they are waiting for the rest of the world to catch up. 

    And when they decide to make XRP moon. "It'll be in the blink of an eye"

    Xrated got a reaction from AsYouWere in The big problem with XRP, and why you'll be waiting (a very long time)   
    My problem with this post is that it's stagnant and falls short.
    Finance moves steadily, technology moves very fast. The two worlds have been growing with technology. The past 50 years argument is like saying "DANG ELECTRIC VEHICLES, DA HELL WERE THEY IN THE 50'S", it just makes no sense considering what was available in the timeline. In addition finance likes to earn, especially if you are public. I think the opinion falls short but I also definitely agree with you that it isn't as fast as people expect. We want it to happen over night but adoption needs to take place which it will. And last I checked Tier1 banks ARE working with ripple, not sure if that seems silly, maybe it does, but that's how you get ahead.

    I hope Money Tap does well. I'm afraid of it just being one more payment option available in Japan like suica, sugoca, line pay, bitpay, etc. I feel like Japan has too many silos and don't use one dominant system like other countries use visa and mastercard. Lets hope money tap can gain many contracts in all areas of Japan.
    I thought Sumitomo, SBI were related companies?

    In short it really is that simple. 
    People who have the capability to influence price make or sell their investment, fish follow creating a huge momentum. This goes with both buy and sell.
    pNd. It's what the market is until it isn't and that's who knows when.

    Xrated got a reaction from Julian_Williams in If you want to understand some of the frustration by members that SUPPORT XRP..... READ THIS   
    I'm starting to think it's not about being in XRP but only to be ready for XRP when we start seeing some price action. 
    It is pathetic the price of XRP and you can't argue otherwise.  For those of us who have been around a minute we are hitting only 1 to 2 years from now to be at those triple digit price predictions (the good o'l non logical random a-ss number 5 years from now saying).
    People who are all in on XRP (like me) are too safe and feeling the stress bend of it. 
    XRP is a smart investment for sure, we know that. But people who are doing short investments are smart too grabbing it while its there.

    From a consumer level I don't think anyone really cares about sbivc, it's not needed and there are plenty of access to crypto. The biggest and most friendly of all exchanges is bitbank and is pretty easy.
     
    SBIVC on the other hand is NOT good because you NEED a sumitomo (sbi owned bank) to fund it which is ******* ridiculous. 
     
    SBIVC has hope I think only in the corporate transaction world, other than that I don't think anyone here in japan gives a **** about them.  I don't expect anything to happen unless it is adopted among business in which it would make sense to use sbivc for liquidity for businesses.

    Most definitely. The technology is there, the company is there, I think what's left to conquer are exchanges that can cater to these businesses and liquidity. I think SBIVC is exactly that for Japan.

    I second this in a much nicer way.
    You still don't know the requirements, work stoppages and fixes, qa standings, or what ever minor details needed for a production implementation. I would assume they have all the best practices down for the simplest implementation today with a POC to knock the ball so far out of the park. 
     
    I think we will see a go live for a lot of these customers who started early in the year as 12 months is WAY too long imo to get something moving, even the big stuff.

    I do see listings for xrp, bch, btc but do not see any area where I can trade or buy it.
    It does appear that I can buy and sell xrp via Yen, although I haven't tried.
    Linking a bank account also is possible currently.
    I've been lagging since I am not in the market to buy.  maybe i'll try in a bit or tomorrow.
    I do not know what viewing order books is, i'll google it.

    Xrated got a reaction from Annern in Status on SBI VC?   
    As for me, i'd too like to know when SBIVC would have all of their services functional. They say they'd be live but I don't recall what exactly would be live. I have my account and trading pin but the exchange isn't working (at least last I checked a few weeks ago).
    If I had to guess, maybe their main applications are unable to function properly with out xrapid being live. That would surely cause the delay!
    As for bitobank or any other Japanese exchanges, I don't think they are the cause since I think sbivc's targeted audience is institutional trading. And they have quite a circle already on stand by.
