  1. Awesome company! I'm surprised I haven't come across them during my super search for a decently priced sectional. Here's the company's info for anyone wanting a direct link: https://www.beliani.com/ Thanks for the share.
  2. Because this is a more effective strategy. No sense in playing whack-a-mole when you can disable the platform enabling that behavior.
  3. No need to get offensive. The post is food for thought, and no one is implying you must digest it.
  4. In this scenario, 6.67% ($100B) of the total liquidity by the Federal Reserve is utilized to purchase XRP for all central banks. 6.67% of $1,500,000,000,000 ($1.5T) = ~ $100,000,000,000 ($100B) We assume $0.15 cost per XRP. This is conservative, since it's highly likely that a bulk acquisition of this size would result in a lower price agreement. $100B worth of XRP bought at $0.15 = 15 Billion XRP This is effectively more than 1/3rd of total circulating supply, instantly creating a shortage of supply Institutional-grade backing of this level will signal a gre
  5. I reached out shortly after he announced his departure from the Hodor persona, and I offered my support as a contributor & team member for his next project. I love to write as well, and I always appreciated an Editor able to chart out a vision. His response to me was succinct, but gave a very clear indication that he was looking to pursue his next endeavor individually -- and he politely encouraged me to also independently pursue my writing passions. I have no doubt that he's contributing to the community still, be it direct or indirect, and I wish him well. I miss his format and writ
  6. Absolutely. I've seen a proliferation of contributors in the community, especially in the news aggregation and research category. He dedicated an entire blog post to this. See the section titled "What Prompted This Decision."
  7. MoneyGram published a press release yesterday sharing how they're expanding into India. It really looks like a great partnership in the making. For Ripple... They just got a VIP, direct access line to India's massive remittance industry & now have the capability to serve a large swath of the country by utilizing Ebix's 320,000 distribution outlets. For Ebix... They're going from handling remittances of $3B with their distribution outlets across India to now partnering with Ripple. Ripple's network impact and financial incentives are a huge advantage in India's market, and it o

  9. Image shows a motion for dismissal exists on the docket, not a dismissal. Someone jumped the gun here.
  10. Here's their story: (Source: Bitmex Blog) R3 sued Ripple on Sep '17. They argued that Ripple agreed in September '16 to give it the option to buy 5 billion XRP at an exercise price of $0.0085 before Sep '19, three years after. R3 alleges that in June '17, Ripple terminated the contract, despite having no right to do so. Ripple then filed a counter case, alleging that R3 did not honour its side of the original '16 agreement by failing to introduce Ripple to a large number of banking clients or to promote XRP for usage in these banking systems. ...So this means that R3 never exerc
  11. Dan Morgan is also on this list of employees that have departed... But, family, why the negative outlooks? I tend to lean on the more optimistic possibilities. Similar to how Morgan has ventured over to Plaid, which has now been acquired by VISA, it could be possible that these players are carrying the torch and helping to illuminate a broader landscape. They’ve left Ripple, but they continue to add to the Ripple Effect.
  12. The standard for calling someone an expert should be at least 10,000 hours of research in the field. It is an injustice to see that bar knocked down a couple of decimal points. Even with a 60 hour weekly research schedule, which truly boils down into 40 hours of productive research and 20 hours of breaks & distractions, and with a maximum of 2 weeks off for holidays and vacation, you're looking at 5 years of straight cryptography and finance research... That being said, here's a cheers for team XRP early adopters.
  13. The last time I felt like this was when Michael Scott left the Dunder Mifflin Paper Company. Ha, horrible analogy actually, but I've thoroughly enjoyed your publications over the years, @Hodor, and I don't think there will be any that can fill your shoes. Here's a toast to everyone having their own style and having their own indelible impact on the world, to the ripples that we each cause. 🍻
  14. If you are sincerely interested in the reasoning behind their target audience’s decision to use their services, look at similar real world counterparts as an example... one example, the ability for landlords/homeowners to take a loan out on their home’s equity.
  15. This is delightful news. I researched PNC's stake into Blackrock and it seems that it's risen to 22% now, according to their most recent filings. Potato, potato. (Ha, doesn't translate online but hopefully you catch the drift.)
