  1. It's not a ban. They are just checking to make sure the exchanges are checking KYC. Its more like a audit of some exchanges. S. Korea is all for crypto. People panic too much.
  2. Bitcoin conference stops accepting BTC due to high fees. Now this is going to hurt! Talk about bad PR. LOL @Hodor @JoelKatz @nikb https://news.bitcoin.com/miami-bitcoin-conference-stops-accepting-bitcoin-due-to-fees-and-congestion/?utm_source=OneSignal Push&utm_medium=notification&utm_campaign=Push Notifications
  3. Looks like 15 hrs to count down. So there may not be much volume till the end of the count. Here is the count down clock. https://kryptocal.com/event/3284/ripple-(xrp)-listing-on-dmm--japan
  4. Yes! It is happening! South Korea is in the lead! I can see that in the near future you may be able to go to a local ATM and get cash out using Ripple XRP. This is why there is such a boom in S. Korea on Ripple. Check it out! Did you notice it is a Mastercard? @Hodor @cmbartley
  5. Cool shirt for all you Ripple Heads out there. I may order me one. Check it out. @Hodor https://www.amazon.com/Ripple-Crypto-currency-Blockchain-Tech-T-Shirt/dp/B076YW8YM4?th=1
  6. Ding! Ding! Ding! Cramer said that is one of the problems he has with Bitcoin is that there is no CEO to sit down and talk with on his show like many investments that he promotes. Cramer said that he is lost because there are so many out there and he is interested in learning more about cryptocurrency. I see this as a huge opportunity for Ripple. Ripple already has people in New York. Tee Hee @miguel
  7. We need a community effort to get Ripple on Jim Cramer's Mad Money show. Jim Cramer said that he is open for suggestions on what new cryptocurrency to talk about on his show. Lets see if we can do this. https://www.cnbc.com/2017/12/11/cramer-says-wait-to-buy-bitcoin-if-you-dont-know-the-risk.html @miguel @JoelKatz @Hodor @Hodlezerper @cmbartley @CARLOS @nikb @mars75 @zenkert @karlos
  8. Twas the night before Bitcoin Futures, when all through the bourse Every laptop was stirring, even the old ones, run with a mouse; The piping and collateral agreements were checked with care, In hopes that Bitcoin Futures soon would be there; The traders were ready, no thought of seeing their beds, While visions of ICO’s danced in their heads; Millennials in hoodies, and I in my cap, Wondering how they will spoof VWAP. When out on twitter there arose such a clatter, I ran to my desk to see what was the matter. The screens had come alive in a big bright flash, Was there a way for this to end, without a big crash? Traders in New York were hampered by snow, It didn’t matter as algos knew they were too slow, When, what to my wondering eyes should appear, But an e-mini contract, with no margin to fear, With a little old desktop, but still lively and quick, I knew in a moment it to buy or sell, I must click. More rapid than eagles, the algo’s trades they came, And spivved and they spoofed, knowing humans were lame; "Now, DASHER! now, DANCER! now, PRANCER and VIXEN!” Strange names for algos, but they were ablitzen? “To the top of the stack! to the top of the wall! Now trade away! trade away! trade away all!" At speeds so far, the orders did fly, No-one to sell, so they all must buy, So up to the limits the contract they flew, With a wallet full of coins, a Winklevoss too. And then, in a twinkling, I saw a seller spoof, The offer gone in a poof. As I drew in my hand, and was turning around, My bid got hit, letting me play another round. In my basement, freezing from head to foot, Trading to paper profits before they became ashes and soot; A bundle of sells suddenly at the top of the stack, All my buys at the mercy of the pack. Algo servers -- how they twinkled! Their owners how merry! Bitcoin millionaires, drinking mahnattan’s with a cherry! Their droll little apps strung out in a row, From app one to another, their fingers did flow The stump of a pipe he held tight in his teeth, And the smoke it encircled his head like a wreath; He had a broad face and a six pack belly, To fit into those skinny jeans, he never ate jelly. He was coifed and well-groomed and full of himself, And I laughed when I saw him, in spite of myself; A wink of his eye and a twist of his head, Soon gave me to know I had everything to dread; He spoke not a word, but went straight to his work, And filled all my order, then turned the market with a jerk, And laying his finger aside of his nose, He warned me not to mess with the bitcoin bros He turned off the algos, to his team gave a whistle, With enough profits to make a regulator bristle But I heard him exclaim, ere he drove out of sight, HAPPY BITCOIN FUTURES TO ALL, AND TO ALL A GOOD-NIGHT! https://www.forbes.com/sites/petertchir/2017/12/10/twas-the-night-before-bitcoin-futures/2/#2788ffb15104 @miguel @JoelKatz @Hodlezerper @nikb @cmbartley @Hodor
  9. LOL! I love it too! That should have been the headline: Dogecoin was included with BOA exchange patent and approved. Crypto is so much fun.
  10. I wonder if the BOA exchange will use Interledger? This is from the patent: In general, an enterprise may offer a variety of financial services that may utilize cryptocurrency. For example, currency exchanges are used by customers, such as customers of financial institutions, to exchange one currency for another currency. Some currency exchanges may involve converting one currency into a cryptocurrency such as Bitcoin, Litecoin, Ripple, Peercoin, or Dogecoin. To execute such an exchange, an enterprise may receive payment from a customer in a quantity of one currency to exchange for an amount of a cryptocurrency equivalent to the received payment from the customer. Essentially simultaneously or shortly thereafter, the enterprise may convert the first currency into the cryptocurrency. Alternatively, the enterprise may to convert the first currency into the cryptocurrency within a window of time. Here is a link to the patent. Its a very long read. http://patft.uspto.gov/netacgi/nph-Parser?Sect1=PTO2&Sect2=HITOFF&u=%2Fnetahtml%2FPTO%2Fsearch-adv.htm&r=1&p=1&f=G&l=50&d=PTXT&S1=9,836,790.PN.&OS=pn/9,836,790&RS=PN/9,836,790
  11. Is there a connection between Ripple and Bank of America's cryptocurrency exchange services? I know Ripple and Bank of America are partners but will this patent include Ripple? In a patent awarded by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office on Tuesday, the second-largest bank in the U.S. outlined a potential cryptocurrency exchange system that would convert one digital currency into another. Further, this system would be automated, establishing the exchange rate between the two currencies based on external data feeds. @cmbartley @Hodlezerper @Hodor https://www.coindesk.com/bank-of-america-outlines-cryptocurrency-exchange-system-in-patent-award/
  12. Dec 19th because its my birthday.
  13. Why would you include BitGo and Ledger Wallet Ripple on Nano S? I have not heard of any problems. Maybe @JoelKatz can help? Is this just FUD? @miguel @Hodor
  14. This was posted on a person's twitter feed that is followed by Ripple and looks to have inside connections. Dose anybody know the connection with Ripple and IGP? What are they counting down? This is what is on the website page. "Soon foreign currency transactions will be cheaper and faster than ever before" Here is the link to the count down. https://instantglobalpayments.com/ Please let me know if anybody out there may know what this is about. @Hodor @cmbartley @Mercury Here is the link to the tweet:
  15. @Elitefoo Do you have any resources that you can share? Why do you think the 2nd pick was Zencash? Any information on this that you can share?
