  1. Hodor, your ideas when they become realities will sink some other crypto currencies into oblivion. I love the visions....
  2. http://www.irafinancialgroup.com/using-self-directed-ira-solo-401k-to-buy-bitcoins-tax-treatment.php Just ran into this today and I am not sure if this applied to xrp or not...
  3. Great works as always @Hodorand all this good information just motivates me more to fix my resume/CV and apply for a job at Ripple. They have opening positions that I can qualify but I am afraid to submit my applications through their website. A lot of times, applicants will never know what will be up with their applications. Well, I thought that I should consider working for a company where its successes will be my successes and in even much more significant ways than just options and money. Sorry to sound bombastic here but I live in SV and it can only do more goods for me than it can hurt.... Well, please vote for Ripple/XRPs with your money. The line starts here....
  4. I think that IOTA is going to do really well. They have had a bunch of great news about partnerships and foundations recently and these are solid not just some news for just the shake of releasing news. During the recent crash, the prices of MIOTA seemed to be the most stable and going up nicely during the last couple of days. I regretted to sell more than half of my holdings to buy others and XRPs but... XRP for sure.... This is the king of values and has significant momentum going into August. You know what I meant... My lion share of investment is on XRP and I am here for a reason. XRL is another safe bet that plays into the popularity of XRP in the very near future (supposed they can carry out what they said) NEO/ANT, I have heard more and more about this one and this is the ETH of China so it does not hurt to put some money in this one.... I also favor anything that is no POW because POW sucks to the environment and you do not need to burn money to make money. Please try to be conscious investors and make money in the process.....
  5. Excellent news on a down day. Another reason to hold.... Oops IBM it is... Well, I still hold....
  6. Hi all, I came across this site and am furious. For all the retirees in US, allowing them to buy XRPs would be another channel to generate more demands for XRPs. I for once will convert big percents of my IRA to anywhere that allows me to buy XRP using IRA account. Can somebody from Ripple ring a bell there? And please do it fast if possible. Thanks.
  7. From USD to XRP, I have very good experiences with Kraken....
  8. Are we discussing about world or US currency? SDR is supposed to be as powerful as a world currency could be but just for countries and not for individuals. I do not see why XRP can not become WORLD (not US exclusively sponsored/created) currency along side other currencies. I am suspecting the petro (US) dollars might lose its special standing as the world reserved currency in a not too distant future. My wild guesses.....
  9. I got in this ICO at the last minute and I am like many XRP hodlers I contributed with other currencies. Why do we have to part with your babies.... Cross my fingers...
  10. https://www.technologyreview.com/s/608088/chinas-central-bank-has-begun-cautiously-testing-a-digital-currency/ "It’s impossible to read a financial website, book review or blog these days without seeing something about Bitcoin, Ethereum and the whole world of cryptocurrencies and blockchain technology. That’s a big subject we’ll be returning to a lot in the weeks ahead. For now, we want to focus on one particular aspect that the Bitcoin advocates have completely overlooked. Bitcoin fans like to say cryptocurrencies are “not backed by any government” and are “beyond government control.” They go on and on about how digital cryptocurrencies are a form of liberation from state power and government control. The libertarians and anarcho-capitalists join the chorus (in addition to the drug dealers, tax evaders and terrorists who already inhabit the dark web). There’s only one problem with this viewpoint. It completely ignores the reality of state power. You don’t actually believe governments will allow an attack on their money monopoly without pushback, do you? Cryptocurrencies may have encryption, but states have guns, jails, detention centers, firing squads, confiscatory power and, in some cases, torture chambers. Who do you think wins that fight when push comes to shove? Governments are also good at lying in wait, letting the crypto fanboys and -girls get full of themselves and then pouncing like a hidden tiger or snake in the grass. As evidence of this, this article showshow China is testing its own digital currency. The IMF also announced this past week that they are encouraging other governments to do the same. The Bitcoin fans take this as “proof” of the success of their new paradigm. It actually proves the opposite. Once these new state-controlled digital currencies are ready, captive citizens will be ordered to use them (so the state controls and sees everything). Then the competing cryptocurrencies will be crushed (unless exchanges offer to cooperate by giving up user information). My favorite alternate currency is the same one states have never been able to completely eliminate or suppress — gold." Please do not shoot the messenger. I got this from one of those newsletters and ...
  11. I just discovered that folding coin 1337 and love the ideas too. Games, donation/charity, folding for good causes and get rewards for 1337. I bought some today...
  12. I have to agree with Tiffany, Quora is another platform that worths paying attention to. It is supposed to be the place for the _experts_ to answer questions and I have seen enough FUDs about XRP/Ripple on it that at times I could not stop and had to defend XRP/Ripple. Zerpers, please check out Quora and spread the good words about XRP/Ripple.
  13. I simply want to see the fiat printings from the Govts to stop. They have been stolen our money under our noses. One of the reasons I consider XRPs as a good investment is because there are 100 billions of XRPs and that number is slowly decreasing.
  14. I read a discussion in Discord and it is really powerful. XRP complements the current banking system whereas bitcoin tries to replace banking system/Govts. Go and tell that to the banks and Govts and see who they are going to work with. Ultimately, they have very few choices and it is just a matter of times before small or large banks are using XRPs. Period.
  15. It is about time but now we need to learn Korean to follow the talks on Bithumb. Is it going to be the battle of the lesser of the two evils? I am just guessing... I just hope that as more exchanges for XRP coming online, no one group will have a stranglehold on XRP.
