  1. I have a Codius based domain name that expires shortly. Haven't really used it as had trouble setting up my spare computer and other things came up Need advice.... should I bother keeping it going or just let it go.? Not big dollars involved ($50) but every little bit helps given the current conditions..
  2. Maybe they could just send 0.001 xrp's to someone and have the min cost of transfer to be 10billion and the max cost of transfer to be 10.1billion. That burn would certainly make the nightly news!!
  3. I rarely visit general discussion because the topics are usually light weight or moon talk or FUD. Your analysis deserves praise and considered responses. Thanks for the good work and for those who have contributed to the discussion. Agree with you re the gifs. It's your post so you don't have to say "please" :-)
  4. Recommended XRP to 2 friends in August 2017 who are in the hitech area. Neither did anything. Know one person who tried some mining of Bitcoin in the early days but then has misplaced the one coin he mined. Don't know anyone who has bought anything.
  5. Thanks for reminding me why I sold my one and only bitcoin 2 years ago. (well before ATH) And..... why i would never steal your spot in the supermarket car park :-) A great read
  6. For info. Received a response from Ledger. as per below. Pity the exclusion for Ripple wasn't clear on their site however their response was fast and clear. I will wait for the application in 2018 or maybe use the Chromebook for an anchor on my yacht when xrp moons. Tiago (Ledger Customer Service) Mar 27, 11:38 CEST Hello , Ledger devices work on: Windows (7+) Mac (10.9+) Linux (Nano and HW.1 do not work on Ubuntu 16.04) Chrome OS (except Ripple) Android for Bitcoin only, using Mycelium https://ledger.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/115005172989-How-to-use-the-Ledger-Nano-with-Mycelium-Android-app It doesn't work on iOS At this date it requires Google Chrome or Chromium (except for Ripple which is a desktop application). Please note that a unique application will be released in 2018 since Google will not support the Chrome extensions anymore. On your computer you will need one USB-A port to plug your device. If you don't have such a port, you must have an USB-C adapter : https://www.ledgerwallet.com/products/ledger-otg-kit
  7. To improve my security I have a new Chromebook and another NanoS. This system is to be only to be used for XRP long term transfers. Ledger advertised NanoS as Chromebook compatible Updated NanoS to latest rev, downloaded Bitcoin app but can't download an XRP app. Can't find app button to download. Anyone know anything about this? Please don't advise me to I'll have to use it for bitcoin as I only buy one coin type :-)
  8. With all the talk about young kids made me think of our own two. Enjoy them at every stage as they grow up so quickly. We now have grand kids. Arguably grand kids are better because they're like kids...... but you can hand them back!! Bought some zerps for all of them before xmas at a good price. Needless to say they are really long term hodlers.
  9. small jump just happening on bitstamp while BTC remaining stable ??
  10. To much time on my hands waiting for BTC to die and XRP to rocket so changed your chart to make the 7d graphs show an upward trend. :-) (hope it shows as first time I've attached a jpg)
  11. To all aussies it is expressly forbidden by the ATO to use a Super Fund (SMSF) to trade or purchase currencies and this includes cryptos. Your accountant will advise you this.
  12. I have just checked on XRP charts and the receiving address has been used for large movements in the past . 24 days ago over a billion from the Coincheck address. It shows as probably SBI on the "who owns what xrp" spreadsheet someone posted recently. So as Mars suggests most likely SBI getting their money out before a freeze on funds due to a hack involving NEM.
  13. A link for the FUD fighters from a respected scientific publication Bitcoin’s utopia has failed as big players hold all the power unfortunately you have to have a subscription to read the full article but the preface is enough to get the idea. I have copied it below https://www.newscientist.com/article/2158825-bitcoins-utopia-has-failed-as-big-players-hold-all-the-power/?utm_campaign=RSS|NSNS&utm_source=NSNS&utm_medium=RSS&utm_content=news&campaign_id=RSS|NSNS-news New Scientist DAILY NEWS 17 January 2018 By Leah Crane Cryptocurrency seems to be selling out. Bitcoin and other digital currencies were designed to circumvent the centralised control of big banks and instead be managed by its network. But now they are growing similar to the very institutions they’re trying to sidestep. Decentralisation is key to cryptocurrencies, because there is no Federal Reserve or European Central Bank to lend legitimacy to the cause. Instead, decentralised networks authenticate transactions so no individual user has the power to manipulate the process, but everyone has the power to check it. However, Emin Gün Sirer at Cornell University in New York and his colleagues monitored the bitcoin and ethereum networks from 2015 to 2017 to see how decentralisation was faring. “There is a lot of noise made about decentralisation, and then when you look at it, it’s not all that decentralised,” Sirer says.

  14. Where I am Currently 37C or 98F in your scale. I would prefer your cold
  15. Slowly chewing into it.... half way gone all gone nothing much until 2.10
  16. I've noticed every time you go for exercise or the movies it goes up a bit. Maybe we should all put into a fund to: (a) Buy RegalChicken lots of movie tickets. (b) Pay for a personal trainer or subsidize his gym fees!!
  17. Maybe meant strap on. No seats left in the rocket latecomers strapped to the outside.
  18. Lucky to have been to Iceland for 8 days. 4WD with family. Great place and people. If I can work out how to do it I will post some puffin pics. Highly recommend Svalbard as well. Look it up on google.
  19. Link to an article on Nth Korea using mining to beat sanctions. http://www.abc.net.au/news/2018-01-09/cryptocurrency-mining-software-found-at-n-korea-university/9314910 Not a problem with xrp but given their history and ability with hacking I would be worried about dealing with any exchanges that are not very secure. Hope i've put this in the right place. Mods can you move it if not.
  20. If you get it off the ground I will be in. Having been in the service club "Rotary International" I could recommend them as a trustworthy worldwide charitable organization. You will find a local club in most cities. https://www.rotary.org/ They do small and very large projects in most countries in the world. Non political, non religious etc. Been around for over 100 years. Check out PolioPlus as an example.
