    SBI is going live next week.

    The real significance of an SBI exchange is that they are a very well known and trusted financial institution throughout Asia. For those in the U.S., it's similar to Goldman Sachs or JP Morgan offering XRP.

    The new XRP symbol is horrible

    Your opinion of the new symbol is totally fair game. Trash talking Claire is not. She's here as a liaison from Ripple to build bridges and comments like that destroy them. If you are serious about the success of xrp, then use your talents to work together as a team.
  4. I hope so. Coil is so revolutionary.

    Second Kuwaiti bank to join RippleNet!!!

    I think Ripple is obliged to make an announcement if a customer has already announced a partnership publicly.

    I did as well but I have not been able to login (with my correct info) the last couple times I tried. Has it been glitchy for you also?

    Ripple donates $4 million to Ellen's fund

    Wow. That's how you do marketing.
  8. Great series of posts @rippledigital. You called it from the start!
  9. About a month ago I put $500 in just to see how it would perform. It happened just as they said. Once they received my USD, they staggered the balloon launches over a few days with various currencies such as Dash or BAT. Each balloon was launched with about 10% or so of the funds. The algorithm tries to time the rising currencies until there is a pullback and then it jumps to another currency. Each time it jumps, they send me an email of what currency that balloon jumped to and how much of it I now own . Each transfer has a 1.25% fee attached. Interestingly, none of my balloons have actually popped yet. I'm not sure what percentage gain it needs to be in order to pop. I know I can do that manually by withdrawing the funds but I haven't. In my opinion, so far it has performed roughly equivalent to just buying a basket of currencies, both crypto and fiat, and holding. All told, as of today, it is worth $518. For around a week it was actually worth less than $500 but then it bounced back. They have a pretty detailed roadmap of planned improvements to the algorithm and the addition of more currencies such as XRP. https://heleum.com/roadmap/ For my part, I am just going to leave what I have in there but after seeing the performance, I am no longer inclined to put any more in.

    First Pilot Results for xRapid

    I think this quote is very substantial: "xRapid saw a savings of 40-70 percent compared to what they normally pay foreign exchange brokers. An average xRapid payment took just over two minutes, compared to today’s average of two to three days when sending cross-border payments." In short, it's returning better than expected results.
  11. Excellent video. Cory Johnson is such a great addition to the Ripple team.
  12. It's great to hear from banking professionals that they see greater benefits with Ripple than with R3.

    Ripple Looses a Billioniare to opiods. RIP Mr Mellon

    Such sad news for him and his family. It's also a big loss for the Ripple community. He was one of the earliest big time supporters of Ripple that I can recall. I think he called himself a Ripple Ambassador in those wealthy circles. I specifically remember there was an article on how he bought a tank of fuel for his airplane with xrp. This was long before others could do anything similar except maybe get someone to buy pizza for it. Reflecting on the numbers, I would assume his xrp billionaire status came only temporarily during the ath. He probably bought his 2 million worth around that .006 period which, if correct, gave him around 300 to 350 million. Vaya Con Dios Mr Mellon

    Ripple on Homeland episode S07E09

    Reminds me of the Ripple mention on Blacklist a while back:
