  1. Precicely why we need the new regulation compliance parameters and the introduction of new private clouds for enhanced security. Once that happens the floodgates to xrp adoption will open. I think you will find the latest SBI Group presentation interesting. Here is a link to an excellent thread started by @XrpCenter yesterday. I recomment you read the twitter thread in full not the sbi group document. The thread picks out the xrp related parts very concisely. "...If the law amendments come in June then SBIVC exchange service will launch the following month. If they are delayed t
  2. I sent Gatehub the following message in a PM. Their reply is below. I am posting it as it seems to imply that they have a handle on the situation. Hope i'm right!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! "My account hasn't been affected (yet!). I have not received an email from Gatehub. Should I be worried? Are my funds now safe?" gatehub 306 Replied: 2 hours ago Hey, thank you for reaching out. If you have not received an email from us, then we have no reason to believe your account was compromised or will be compromised
  3. What happens in July if the SBI VC launch finally happens will be a big indicator for price. Personally, I believe if it does launch then we will see a new ATH this summer. I also see April 2020 as the start of real utility (I think Regulation issues will be resolved then) and with that some serious price increases.
  4. Another informative piece @Hodor, thanks. Thus, regulatory uncertainty continues to be the major weakness for XRP, since its largest use case, while slowly gaining traction, seems to be encountering resistance by the original target customer group: banks. As I live outside of the U.S. I am not up to speed on how the Political process works there. Can you give a "best shot" guesstimate on the timeframe for the new legislation (put forward by those members of Congress you refer to) will take to pass into Law? As regulatory uncertainty also seems to be the main issue holding bac
  5. Also agree with @Valhalla_Guy but I think they will divest - otherwise, although it could/should, xrp will never see triple digits.
  6. They do. https://www.r3.com/news/r3-launches-universal-corda-settler-application/ December 5, 2018 R3, the world’s leading developer of enterprise blockchain solutions for business, today launched its new Corda Settler, an application purpose-built to allow for payment obligations raised on the Corda blockchain platform to be made through any of the world’s payment systems, both traditional and blockchain-based. XRP is the first globally recognized cryptocurrency to be supported by the Settler, bringing the Corda and XRP ecosystems into closer alignment. https://www.ledgerinsigh
  7. Very upbeat tone from Ripple in this official release with lots of references to XRP: "JNFX, SendFriend, Transpaygo, FTCS and Euro Exim Bank will leverage the digital asset XRP to source liquidity on-demand when sending payments on behalf of their customers" David Lighton, Founder, SendFriend: "Through our partnership, we are bringing our customers a next-generation, blockchain payment solution that leverages XRP to address many of the efficiency and equity problems with existing remittances. For them, that means cheaper and faster payments.” Brad Garlinghouse “In 2018, nearly 1
  8. Another great blog @Hodor, thanks. FYI - grammatical error: drop the "ed" R3 & Real Property Transactions Since R3 announced that they'd be supporting XRP settlement out-of-the-box in their new "Corda Settler" application, there has been an increased amount of "interested" from the XRP Community about what this means for network liquidity. Do you think Brad might confirm the "at least one bank by the end of 2018" in his AMA later or maybe say it's being deferred until 2019?
  9. Great for currency exchange but charge around 3.5% to buy xrp. Eg. exchange £100 on xrp then immediately exchange back and you’ll get around £96.50 back. Pros: immediate/convenient. Cons: more expensive than say Gatehub, not able to transfer xrp in/out. Ideal for purchasing during a run/fizz (would be nice to see this soon as sadly it hasn’t happened much rec).
  10. Another great blog @Hodor, thanks. Do you still think we will see the fruition of Brad's saying that at least one bank will use xRapid by the end of 2018? Personally, I hope so as I think that could very well instigate a new "bull run". The "next wave" so to speak!
  11. We have now moved to the new Current Stable version version 1.1.2 (a fix for a technical issue in the consensus) from version 1.1.1 which improved handling of validator list sites. Can anyone enlighten me as to what rippled-jbcoind-1.1.1 is aiming to do? Just curious! On the same theme, can anyone enlighten me as to what version rippled-1.2.0 will fix/improve when released? Just curious!
