  1. Sorry, but as a finance practitioner I can't let this one go. There is nothing "artificial" about shareholder value increasing due to a stock buyback. This is typically a good use of excess cash for a corporation. All else constant, less shares = higher price per share, and vice versa. It's a simple math problem and is basically increasing the value of shares to current shareholders at a price. That is not artificial....the valuation of the company does not change, each shareholders value increases as it should - naturally - not "artificially" - do to less outstanding float. This is corporate finance 101.
  2. listen to re-broadcast here: http://ir.moneygram.com/events-presentations
  3. around 24 min - i think the second analyst question - they do a great job explaining the consumer vs. back-end sides of sending money cross-boarder and for the first time ever we can settle the back-end process as "near to instant as humanly possible" and getting rid of all the money "trapped in transit". Great stuff...the vision becoming reality.
  4. They gush a bit about Ripple and xRapid "Ripple has become our key partner for settling cross border payments using digital assets" "Sooo excited to announce today that moneygram is live and settling transactions on the xRapid platform" "we started executing trades this week and all signs point to this being a tremendously beneficial relationship for all parties involved" "we are literally settling trades in seconds and quote my friend Larry 'this is really cool'"
  5. Seems like that is generally positive. Sorry if Im missing it and it is here somewhere just looking for thoughts. https://techcrunch.com/2019/06/26/imgur-premium/
  6. Any thoughts on this memo from the latest escrow movement? An apparent reference to Gil Scott-Heron’s "The revolution will not be televised". On the surface I guess you could just say this is going to be big (and from a media coverage standpoint the opposite of what Scott-Heron says about the uprising).
  7. About 80% of "Exit Stage" private companies go the way of acquisition rather than IPO. Significant legal, administrative, and filing fees make the M&A choice much more preferable than IPO. (source Sharepost Investment Management publication "Understanding the J-Curve").
  8. Any Accredited Investor has the opportunity to buy Ripple shares if they are offered...no "company" needed.
  9. Is anyone else geeking out on this and trying to (or has already) reproduced it? I want to do it, my Raspberry will arrive tomorrow, I will start tinkering there. I assume you would set up a dedicated wallet for this (obviously not using the one where your stash is)? Understood it would cost you 20XRP. I am also a bit confused on the relay but I'm not there yet....
  10. I want o reproduce the ILP enabled light switch from Wietse blog Sept 14. I would like to discuss the process and variations with others who have done it or want to do it, etc. First, though, is this (General Discussion) the right place for that type of discussion?
