    charmaser reacted to Hiirihii in XRP Ledger java API and text interface   
    This post is to announce project to develop Java API  for apps to interact with XRP Ledger. There will also be a simple text based user interface.
    Project Outcomes:
    Java API to communicate with Rippled server using public API methods. Admin API methods(after public methods are done). Methods to add/remove xrp addresses that you want to track. methods to save some data(not sure yet what data makes sense to store) text based user interface.  
    All code will be published on https://github.com/Hiirihii/xrpl-java-api under MIT license. And project website you can found in https://incox.io/
    I have entrepreneur background and i have little by little get into coding more or less because i'm looking to understand XRP Ledger better. For the past 4 months i have done online java courses that my local university offers. And if all goes as well i will start my Computer Science studies next September.
    Main idea behind this project is to apply what i have learned in online courses in practice and build tools what i need. Like reason to build text interface instead of GUI is that i don't know how to build GUI..yet But i also have some weird interest for terminal applications. 
    Currently i have no strict timeline but i'm looking to push first piece of code to github in May or June.

    charmaser got a reaction from Sharkey in Lets stop calling Bear Market to a Lack of interest   
    @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.

    charmaser got a reaction from ImTheRippler in A FUD Video comparing XLM and XRP. Can anyone speak to some of the things mentioned here?   
    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

    ACI supports around 9 percent of global SWIFT traffic and approximately 30 percent in the US. ACI offers services to banks around the world wanting to connect to and leverage the SWIFT’s global payment initiative (gpi). ACI also supports real-time schemes around the world, meaning that any bank can use Real-time Payment Systems to support SWIFT FIN, gpi, DLT (e.g. Ripple), Wire and immediate payments.

    Hi all, I've created a client side wallet for the XRP ledger. I'm still working on it, cleaning it up, and adding new features. But I'm an electrician by trade here in Montana, USA with 3 kids so it's kind of a weekend deal at the moment. Also the code might be ugly... I wrote it in Javascript to interact with the ripple API but it's coming along and I'm learning more every week. My SSL certificate is still pending verification by godaddy so maybe don't try to send payments using your main wallet address yet... I'm testing it using a burner wallet with a couple XRP but it works! If you don't have a burner you could try just checking your wallet balance... Any comments/suggestions/support would be rad. Thanks!

    Coinbase is an excellent case study in a company with a good product ignoring what their customers want because the founders assume that they know best what the customer needs. 
    They could have found a profitable way for XRP and all the others to be on their platform as evidence by just about every single other competitor doing just that over the last year. 
    Should have served their customers and not their egos.

    In a stunning vote of "no confidence" in the US monopoly over global payment infrastructure, one month ago Germany’s foreign minister Heiko Maas called for the creation of a new payments system independent of the US that would allow Brussels to be independent in its financial operations from Washington and as a means of rescuing the nuclear deal between Iran and the west.

    charmaser reacted to Liagala in Concerns about Coil data collection   
    I went and read through the Terms and Conditions given when you sign up for Coil.  Most of it seemed to be pretty straightforward (generic legal crap, the "we can't control third parties" stuff, etc).  Toward the end I found these bits that concerned me a little (all bolded emphasis is mine):
     
     
    So I went and looked at their privacy policy. 

     
     
    Okay... so this service is meant to let us control our own data by paying for the sites we visit.  Yet they collect everything we do at all times?  Why is my location required information for them to run their service?  Why do they need to know the e-mails I read?  And of course all this data is being used to market to us, because that's what they always do with it.

     
     
    So uh... I thought they were supposed to be the good guys.  Why do I feel like I'm paying them to collect more information about me than Facebook does?  Can someone reassure me a little here?

    Hi Christopher,
     
    Interested in how you can reduce your cross-border payments inefficiencies? Then download the new AFP Payments Guide, underwritten by MUFG Union Bank.
     
    In this guide you’ll learn:
    • About some of the prominent systems in cross-border payments
    • How to determine if you should consider a new payments system
    • The pros and the cons of new technology available in the payments space
     
    Efficiency, transparency and optimization should be your top concerns when it comes to cross-border payments. While new technologies can help in these facets, no one system is perfect for everyone. Find out what is best for you and your organization in this new guide.
    You must sign up to download the full white-paper and I'm unable to attach PDFs so I've taken some screenshots to assist.

    The Clintons are and have always been the mouthpieces for the de-regulation of financial services (Glass-Steagall 1999).  Banks love them and they love banks. Anyone who is letting their own (completely uninfluential) political opinions bar them from recognizing how institutional structures function, where power, and money reside is only blind to the reality of the world.  Politics doesn't matter to money.  Money is controlled by concentrated private power.  The Clintons are servants of this group, and a natural choice to be the voice ushering in this new era of technology, innovation, and money making, especially with a global recession afoot.  Anyone who has opinion counter this better show up with some facts because it's been embarrassing reading the childish rage taking over this forum.
    The price is .43, and there's nothing better to get angry about.  That's what this is about. If $43 (and I'd love that!) I doubt we'd hear a peep about who was jibber jabbing at the swell conference in October.
