  1. Yes it is indeed immune. The worst that can happen is that forward progress will just halt temporarily. That's not a crash, that's how any critical payment system should work.
  2. He is a Bitcoin moron seeing his defeat is coming, and covering his ass. "But I actually think Ripple's tech is interesting, and the asset could prove successful under a certain set of (admittedly unlikely) scenarios." Absolute clueless and dishonest ****. He'd better delete all his tweets from the past two years, and hope people don't remember his name.
  3. Actually I'm going to drink champagne bought with the XRP that I bought for half a cent. A lot of people were saying the same things as you back then. XRP has never been in a better position than today. The plan is working. Price is a distraction. I'm not going to explain to you why, it is all available if you are willing to see it.
  4. Wrong conclusion. I'm not going to waste my precious time on the last of the year arguing with someone who thinks potential is meaningless, and only numbers are relevant.
  5. Then we can stop debating at this point. I think it means everything.
  6. Based on what I see happening, within Ripple, and outside Ripple. I don't think you really understand the value proposition of decentralized digital assets, and what problem they solve. I believe the point of no return has already been crossed.
  7. The train is still moving in the right direction. Real world usage *will* happen in 2020. Do the most stupid thing in your life and sell your bags if you haven't done so yet.
  8. I cant imagine myself logging into the chatforums of one of the 2000 coins I dont own to give people negative investment advice. What motivates you?
  9. This one for sure: "I'm long on Bitcoin". Brad only talks rehearsed soundbites. I wish he invited David instead, he speaks his direct thoughts, coming from a brilliant mind.
  10. I think the author is confusing the Swift DLT PoC early last year with "testing Ripple". Here are the results. "DLT not yet ready" was the conclusion (and repeated in that article).
  11. ask yourself why people ever sell things when inflation means they can get more for it tomorrow.
  12. Yes all the shady exchanges in the world will together form a trusted network, with very a simple consensus algorithm about reaching quick global consensus about the order in which up to 1500 transactions per second were received. The trust that is global, is the trust that all validators agree with the outcome of the order of transactions in a single 3 second window. and that order is a trivial issue that nobody cares about, because you cannot spend money that you do not have anyway.
  13. with decentralized digital assets, trust is global, and the system is permissionless. two very important conditions for an entirely new class of autonomous applications that run on the internet, and are also accessible by the 1.7 billion adults that do not have access to a bank account.
  14. I think that eventually, digital assets will be used by anyone that wants real-time transactions over the Internet of small amounts and low costs, globally. I also think eventually small transactions will replace large transactions. Money will move in small packets, in the opposite direction of the services that are provided. For software to be able to handle money as truly data, it can't have a counter party, as the counterparty introduces a "well it depends". So anyone who has assets in a silo'd network, will have to convert those assets to universal digital asset, in order to part
  15. Assuming network A and B, and network A member Bob needs to pay network B member Alice money. Bob buys XRP for network A dollars, sends XRP to (the jurisdiction of) Alice who then sells XRP for network B dollars. Or possibly with agent X in between, who takes care of the exchange and transport part, so that neither Bob or Alice ever have to deal with anything than their local network currency. This requires liquidity of dollar A / XRP and dollar B / XRP. This depends on the market demand of members of A and B transacting together. Remember: in the digital space there is no
  16. It may be a competitor for RippleNet, but not for XRP (which, as a universal digital asset, does not depend on ILP to bridge networks).
  17. No court has ruled on bananas being securities, yet they are sold as bananas everywhere. Is that misleading too?
  18. Does this network create a level playing field and advance interoperabitliy between payment networks? Yes? good, it will enable deflationary native digital asset XRP to compete with inflationary (unbacked fractional reserve) USD IOU's. No? Then not a competitor but another walled garden that needs to be bridged to connect to other walled gardens. XRP is being positioned to best cross the bridges.
  19. My point is that the majority of talented content creators are currently creating their content for free, while facebook, twitter etc are earning all the revenue from their work. THEY will switch to a platform where they are being paid for their talent, once it becomes simple to route payments directly from reader to author. Leaving advertising platforms with only garbage. Then you will switch too.
  20. You must have spend at least 15 minutes writing that article. How much revenue did that create for you? Zero. You may not care. Other talented writers will. You are being robbed now. Web payments will change that completely. The net result is that you will be paying LESS for better content.
  21. Sure, huuuuge fan, yet has somehow missed the memos, billboards and broadcasts that the token is currently named XRP, and the company Ripple. Also missed the Moneygram deal. troll, not a fan.
