  1. No problem. I do java development on the side- looking forward to dropping in on your project as it progresses.
  2. Thats a big project! If I was you I'd start by forking the unmaintened library from Ripple and going through each method instead of starting from scratch. Also itd be nice to optimize the library for android applications. That would be a major contribution. Best of luck to you!
  3. I would write the pseudo code for your algorithm and test it with mock trades. Don't just Google trading algorithms and try to use them willy nilly. If anything, this could be a learning experience for you into the world of TA and scripting.
  4. @LeoiZuria I dont think it's any big secret that many, many people lost ALOT of money last year speculating on crypto. That kind of loss, which we all witnessed, is going to take awhile to wash out. Having said that, it is similarly narrow to say that it will never be washed out as it is to say that the entire market is at whims of these mythical players in the sky who are just pulling all the strings. How absurd would it to be to speculate on an asset if one really believed all that? I take what you said as more of venting about the current lack of appeal that crypto has with the general public right now. Which is understandable, but maybe falling on deaf ears in a forum inundated with gross theories of overnight fortune. I encourage take a longer term outlook on the state of crypto, and xrp in general. I purchased years ago with the intention of holding for at least 5 years. That time frame, I believed, would be sufficient to see if xrp would begin to consume a share of liquidity for its use case. I have not been disappointed in that.
  5. Here's some good information from Mr. Britto if you already haven't seen it. The PDF is too long to attach here but by clicking on the "Founder's Agreement" link you can download it. The court document is a basis for a civil suit brought by Britto against McCaleb for violation of their agreement upon creating XRP. Britto outlines the history of Ripple and the role he played in creating the consensus protocol and makes a case against McCaleb for essentially stealing his intellectual property. Edit: For link-wary people you can find the above information directly from the San Fransisco Superior Court by querying case #CGC-15-544133
  6. Mainy of those points are countered here: https://www.xrpchat.com/faq/ There's alot in that presumptive vivisection of Ripple to untangle, is there a particular bit which you wanted more information about?
  7. It's insane, and naive, to think this isn't an incredibly high risk market. Be careful or somebody might be dancing on your split blood.
  8. Ripple chose Bill Clinton to be the keynote speaker not because of his knowledge of cryptocurrency or blockchain technology, but because of his unique experience in helping shape a free and decentralized internet which we have all come to know and love today. After reading many of your replies to others, I won't argue that you're not entitled to your personal animus to whomever you feel, but wrapping your pining in obvious intellectual dishonesty and then barricading your position with the egocentric fervor of an adolescent is, most likely, less reminiscent of the person you think you are. You should probably sell and stop complaining about your investments. https://ripple.com/insights/president-bill-clinton-keynotes-swell-2018/
  9. It's so ridiculous how by changing one word- "hope" to "says" CNBC has formulated clickbait speculation.
  10. Cute, people read results in the title and thought hard data was going to be in an insights article ?
  11. Meh, in it for the long haul. The price of XRP in Q1/Q2 2018 is insignificant. OP only gets slated for being short sighted with his investments. Fundamentally XRP is stronger than ever, which means the price will increase in due time. If you were to correlate the price change to a tangible change in the technology then I might pause.
  12. Lol, yeah his argument was essentially because I re-wrote it it's better the second time. Because that's the way writing code works. The obvious question that begs is why... But he didn't get into that. Any XLM pros want to elaborate?
  13. Jed is definitely a very bright mind and I wouldn't hold his unpolished speaking skills with too much weight. Interesting how he comments that XLM is actually an improved version of XRP and easier for developers to work with. Not sure what the specifics of this really is. I do like that Stellar rewards developers for building XLM software applications. Something I feel might benefit Ripple. All in all, interesting and glad I own 5% XLM
  14. Welcome to the merciless democracy. If it makes you feel better at all I lost a password to an account with 55 btc in it a few years ago. Here's to kicking your shoes off and giving it another go!
  15. CB desperately needs to figure out how to do customer service before adding any new coins.
  16. Anyone else shocked by the $20 billion volume of these 13000 customers?! Score XRP.
  17. Thanks for sharing, I've already shared it with some other hodler friends. The implications for Interledger, Codius and XRP are really exciting to think about. The use cases for this trio are pretty fun to think about and left me trying to think up other use cases for micropayments. Video, publishing, charity, internet and cable services, web site hosting, p2p lending and commerce for services and goods, even things like car insurance which could be based on how many miles you actually drive a car. Man the more I think about the use cases are endless! I liked how Stefan gave high level technical summaries and wasn't afraid to challenge some of the questions. My hope is that XRP becomes that premier interoperable asset. Given this team and their incredible talent I think we picked the right corner.
  18. I think 100 years from now they'll be considered more digital antiques with an absolutely enormous value.
  19. I would be *very* careful trying to time a bottom here. Much better to wait for the smoke to clear and some green candles closing before investing.
  20. BTC to 4k, XRP to the .30's. This isn't a bad thing, it's a necessary and healthy correction that will lead to new long term highs. Patience.
  21. Seriously, I have zero love for the victim card. #Take profit when you can. #Hodl the majority if you believe in XRP. ##Hopefully you come out with your initial investment and some money to enjoy life with in the short term... And with the majority of your money invested for the long term. It can happen to you too, if you're not too short sighted.
  22. @calex960: Thanks for sharing your enthusiasm, it's refreshing to hear somebody full of vigor about this project. Your video brought up some striking questions. The biggest one pertains to today: Why is there so much selling pressure despite this remarkable announcement? My take on it is that it's difficult to valuate XRP in terms of Ripple's successes on the xCurrent front. They seem linked to a certain degree as progress on the xCurrent front builds up speculation of future success of xRapid, however I have a feeling the market may be tired of Ripple- and really any crypto-speculation at the moment. The terrible elephant in the room may be that xCurrent might actually work too well for short term xRapid adoption to progress as it should. With the stormy seas of regulatory fears washing through out the financial world, many may only see the negatives of holding a highly volatile and abstruse crypto currency despite its potential to alleviate stagnant nostro/vostro accounts. xCurrent makes the instant payments XRP could offer in the short term and makes it available virtually risk free. Crossing the bridge of regulation might take time but I'm confident that they'll do their best to push XRP's use case. @Seoulite, great feedback by the way.
  23. Meanwhile exchanges are improving their scalability, new exchanges are coming online to service new hoards of speculators. It may take some time to correct and build up positive momentum again but I think the bottlenecking we saw in 2017 will be a thing of the past. We dine in hell tonight, and maybe every few nights for the next few months but we will find glory soon enough lads.
  24. You should follow the law of your land my friend. Don't try and get around the law or you may have to face consequences. That said, there is no law as of right now banning crypto but it seems like it is sure to come. If you think the market will recover some before the law goes into effect then hodl one last time.
  25. I cant find any kind of reliable sourcing for their volumes. Nobody on xrpChat has an account with them??
