  1. Yep, not worth the risk of reducing your stack for the sake of a few cents.. Hang on to what you have and if you have spare cash to invest at lower levels, use that to buy more.. If the market does fall further to your buying point, great, buy more, if it doesn't, great, your stack is still intact as it was before and you still have your spare cash.. If you sell all/some and it doesn't fall to your buying point but suddenly reverses up as it did yesterday (29/06/18), how hard would you kick yourself for not just selling at the wrong time, but having to get back in at higher prices, potentially have fewer delicious zerps for your money?
  2. My question is; do I buy more now, whilst at these 'lows' or wait for the panic to start and run it's course? - Obviously this is not investment advice, but for educational purposes only and would benefit nothing but my spreadsheet!
  3. I'm guessing it's due to De Niro's anti-Trump speech at the Tony Awards the other night, although, De Niro has been anit-Trump for a long while..
  4. I'm guessing the event(s) are mostly US-centric as its I'm guessing the event(s) are mostly US-centric as its currently 16:22 11th June in Japan, 08:22 11th June in UK and I can't seem to find any major crypto news in the MSM.. Right, off to work.. have a nice day all, hope its all still here when I get home.. And home is where I left it..
  5. Unfortunately, I lack the real knowledge / expertise of Ripple / XRP to be posting anything, I have nothing unique to offer, hence my lurking.. But if you wanna spot me at the meet-ups, I'm the fat, bald 'Billy-no-mates' lurking in one of the corners!! ?
  6. @BarryMcHockenue and @Loki, I'm not the most active of posters, usually just a lurker, but your both of your posts got me and I just want to wish the pair of you the very best of luck and hope that things work out for you both.. All the best.. ?
  7. Agreed.. I'm a little bit sceptical too, haven't the postcards for registration have only just gone out in Japan, as in last Thursday or Friday? Surely they'd like to get the postcards back, enter the respondents' details, perform the KYC/ATML checks and once sufficient numbers have been registered and contacted with provisional login details, they would then announce a 'doors open' date?? Just a thought.. I could be wrong, I have been in the past.. ***EDIT*** And it looks like I'm wrong again!! It appears, upon further research, that the postcards are for postal address confirmation for those that are already registered..
  8. Konfirmed!! wow.. so moon.. such rich.. very money.. much lambo.. many happy.. wow..
  9. I can sometimes hear the sound of the jet engines as they get the 'go-around' from Gatwick.. I shall say no more.. lols..
  10. I can't be the only one in the South East, surely?! West Sussex..
  11. What research led you to all of your above conclusions? Do you actually own any XRP - if 'yes', then why if your initial post is what you understand to be true?
  12. Nice idea but your maths are wrong from after the first profit target. You're taking the 10% (adjustable) figure of the total stack say, 1,000 and then subtracting this same 10% figure of 100 from each new total all the way down to 0 remaining, instead of deducting 10% from each new total after the previous 10% was sold.. For example, I start with 1,000, 10% of this is 100 which are then sold. My new stack total is now 900, 10% of this is 90, sold, new total 810, 10% is 81, sold, new total 729, 10% is 72.9 etc, etc..
  13. lol.. no.. although compared to some on here.. yes.. a link to this was posted on twitter and i followed it here.. i've since retweeted the link so more comments may follow..
  14. A truly insightful and confidence inspiring piece.. Thank you..
  15. It will also be interesting to see how often their ratings are revised, monthly/quarterly/annually and the subsequent impact of any revisions on this volatile market.. I do think that this will sort the wheat from the chaff, giving further legitimacy to the best of the coins/tokens and will allow greater institutional money to enter the market with enough volume to limit the effects of the whale pumps and dumps..
  16. I suppose a screenshot sent to a printer or a trusty camera-phone would be pushing it too far?? ^JOKE^
  17. It was an image of a supposed list of future dates and events of actions that could produce reactions in the XRP market.. But, if you can Picture This, The Hardest Part was accepting the profile pic, as the guy looked like an X Offender, probably called Denis.. But One Way Or Another, we'll soon see if the events become reality or we're just Dreaming.. If they come true, it'll be Atomic for XRP, but if not, well, at least my Heart Of Glass won't be broken..
  18. Probably xCurrent as per Ripple's 'Insight' article: https://ripple.com/insights/top-korean-banks-work-japan-bank-consortium-modernize-cross-border-payments/ The Japan Bank Consortium will use Ripple’s settlement technology, xCurrent, to settle transactions between participating Japanese banks and Woori Bank or Shinhan Bank.
  19. And if the pace of this change was something which took the traditional banks by surprise, perhaps they would be driven to adopting XRP faster than anticipated, rather than looking at at their convenience, in order to cut costs quicker.. Who knows what the future holds..??
  20. Perhaps the two household names are in fact both Apple AND Google, both utilising Ripple's systems under their respective hoods.. Apple AND Google.. Now that would be a MASSIVE announcement, but it's conjecture on my part..
  21. @21x2 - Thanks for the link, much appreciated. Although my driver's licence was perfectly clear, I'm not a US resident, so I need to do the webcam thang.. If only they made that perfectly clear during sign-up, I wouldn't still be waiting.. I'll have to do the verify thing tomorrow, when the sun is out.. Thanks again..
  22. Although I'm hodling XRP elsewhere, I'm stuck in the 'validate ID' process and have been for a few days now, despite uploading photos of ID etc. I think you just need to be patient and understand that there is a backlog of applicants / processing they need to get on top of, all at the wrong time of year for a lot of companies.. If you have verifiable proof of transactions and transfers to/from/ your account I think you'll be fine, but you may have to wait until the holiday season has passed and they've caught up with themselves.. I'm no Coinbase shill / fanboy, just trying to offer words of reassurance.. Keep screenshots of your progress / transactions if you can, just in case.. Best of luck..
  23. IMO, I think difference between the profits we are generating with our hodlings and a lottery win is clear, we all seem to be affording it more respect. I got in at .23 (average price across 5 trades) and am hodling in the low 10's of thousands.. My last purchase was actually a few hours before the escrow completed and I watched it that evening. I was just blown away by the sudden increases; between the time I put my monitors on, got a coffee and swapped uniform for pj's, I had 'earned' over $2k.. I'm sure we've all done the 'what if' spreadsheets and just wowed at the figures.. no?!.. just me then.. :/ What I'd really like to do is keep it secret from my work colleagues and carry on doing the job I love, but just do it during the months where I'm not defrosting the car in the mornings or evenings when I finish.. I've already looked at round the world cruises, which is what I'd probably do and use the time away to really think about what I would do with the rest of the money.. I have a car which I adore and want to keep forever, even though I will still fantasise about the Lambo's.. If I could pay off mine and my brother's mortgages and stay grounded, that would be enough for me.. I'm also a single guy with no kids, so I don't need to hodl out forever.. A couple of million £'s would be just fine..
