  1. Exactly. There isn't enough liquidity in XRP/Fiat pairs to facilitate efficient use of XRP as the bridge asset. This was explained by the Moneygram CEO during the SWELL panel. Link to the panel below.
  2. No rush! Would love to dig into it whenever it's available
  3. Any chance you can share your model that evaluates liquidity and price per XRP? Curious to see how your looking at this to better understand how price may be affected.
  4. Very very informative discussion! The points made about liquidity and central banks intentionally slowing the flow of outbound funds were pretty eye opening. Interesting to hear about some of the things they're working on going forward.
  5. For those who missed it, you can listen to it via the link below. It's a podcast so it can also be downloaded through the app store. https://www.abra.com/blog/money-3-0-ethan-beard-from-ripple-talks-about-global-payments/
  6. Does anyone know where the XRP/PHP trade volume can be found via the link below? It shows data for Bitso (MXN corridor) and BTC Markets (AUD corridor) but I can't seem to find anything on the exchange that facilitates the PHP corridor. https://xrpcharts.ripple.com/#/xrp-markets
  7. Ran a quick little exercise taking data from coin market cap. The below shows % changes in XRP from it's low's at the start of each year. Assuming a current price of $0.28, if you apply the average year-over-year % change you get a price per unit of ~18.86. Obviously, reality doesn't work this way but it's interesting to see the % changes over time.

  9. Great. Then we'll see the expansion of AUD pairs.
  10. According to the bisto speaker at Swell the USD <--> MXN remittance corridor is the largest so USD <--> AUD is feasible is you assume it's less efficient than USD <--> MXN. Agreed with you that we obviously won't see USD <--> EUR as this works fine now just the way it is. You're right on the trading volume for XRP/MXN on Bitso, that's my mistake but I'll edit. Thanks for the catch!
  11. With the addition of the Australian Dollar and Philippine Peso the below shows the possible currency flows. Assuming $1.25M of daily transfers in each pair (Note: we're already seeing more than that in the USD <--> MXN pair) that gets us to $7.5M in utility liquidity. We also just got news that the Brazilian Real is getting a corridor. 2020 is going to be a big year followed by an even bigger 2021 as the Yen gets added as another corridor. Keep in mind that each additional pair adds more than one corridor (in theory) given it can be connected to the other existing currency pairs (i.e. Metcalfe's Law = exponential growth). USD <--> MXN USD <--> PHP USD <--> AUD MXN <--> PHP MXN <--> AUD AUD <--> PHP
  12. Below is from XRP arcade - link below. Looks like there's a fair amount of AUD/XRP pairs. However, BTC Markets is the only AUD/XRP pair that appears on xrpcharts https://www.xrparcade.com/xrpfiatpairs/
