  1. I remember my friend's story – in 2017 he bought a lot of Cardano and almost sat out the then market fall. He sold and in 48 hours Cardano turned around massively, his words.
  2. I entered some values closer to reality into the XRP price calculator (0,0001; 5; 0,0005; 1; 40; 5) and arrived at the price 0,02 USD. Pretty enlightening. That was the price in spring 2017. Needless to say, that when I entered real values, the calculator reported "Invalid input". https://xrpbalance.com/
  3. Actually this could possibly be one of the best outcomes and is a definite sell trigger. Pass the ball!
  4. We have SEPA in the EU. A wire to anywhere here costs 45 cents. In 2006, when I was doing a bank consulting project, I found out that for a local transfer cost 20 cents to the customer, the bank's costs were 1,28 cents. Today imho the proportion is roughly similar and judging by the fact that banks only earn from commissions, that proportion is set to rise. Still it's peanuts comparing to a transfer to Thailand – 2k euros transferred at the cost of 51 euro. But even that is peanuts considering that you will pay 9+% to get money to anywhere in the EU anonymously.
  5. There is! In the project I'm watching, there are specific interfaces for both "dark pool" dealing, which does not appear on the exchange order book, and iceberg trading, which means splitting large orders into smaller random peaces, and the large order does not appear in the order book. Both are available to broker-traders only.

    Definitely. It is this spat that has taken the whole market down. Rarely one can pinpoint the culprit in market crashes, but this one definitely is it. Somewhere around is the link I posted. Nothing personal, just business.

    Now, this is not about XRP directly, but it well explains the current fuss. Besides, it confirms what I learned from Kiev crypto guys couple days ago. Two genital heads sorting their differences at the expense of the whole market. https://coinnounce.com/roger-ver-bitmain-face-lawsuit-for-allegedly-hijacking-bitcoin-cash-network/

    I wonder, what the prophet @XRPcalling is gonna say now?
  9. And who is this person marketing here? Registered with the Estonian Ministry of Finance, which is itself 100% transparent – the team shall be visible and, yep?
  10. @P3T3RIS Please at least name yourself, if you want to push marketing msgs! Can't find anything about yōr eksčeindž team, Peteris.
  11. Yep, they could. Interesting in this respect are the relatively new phenomena – private stablecoins.
  12. Right you are, but cryptos still correlate with wider picture outside regulated markets, namely capital flows. If in 2017 it was possible to point the finger at particular events, that created money flow into cryptos, today I see nothing to point the finger at, except "institutional money". Waiting game for some flow to return to cryptos.
  13. Notice how stablecoins are gaining volume.
  14. 'd think you need so much so that interest income covers your yearly budget, that is, if you plan on living forever. If you can estimate your "lifespan", then, probably, a lot less.
  15. Thanks! I confess that I plan to sell part of my XRP's and get back to BTC.
