  1. I have question that I hope someone knows the answer to. Swift is partnering with R3 and using Corda which supports XRP, but does it transact through exchanges, if not how will it effect the price. R3 holds about 5 Billion xrp, so what is stopping them transacting the payment through Corda and settling with xrp off the exchanges, which would allow them to price xrp at anything they want, as long as the transaction were kept in house. For example couldn't they spread there 5 Billion xrp across 20 different countries, and build there own in house exchanges in those countries, therefore eliminating and volatility. I understand that xrapid works with exchanges which is good for us Hodlers, but not to sure about Corda.
  2. Not to sure, not that tech savy to know how that would work. It was pure speculation i know, Ripple and R3 came to a settlement over the 5 billion xrp, but settlement number to my knowledge had not been released.
  3. Now I follow Jason Graystone on YouTube, he is not a crypto trader but a forex one. He makes his money trading forex stocks, purely on TA, and he is very successful doing so. He put this video out in October as a lot of people where asking his view on BTC, which really reflects on xrp and the rest of the market. Check it out, his prediction purely on TA is spot on so far. Remember this was made before the recent down trend we are seeing now.
  4. What people need to understand is he is not in crypto, he is a forex trader, the only reason he analysised BTC was case a lot of his followers asked him to do so. It's an unbiased opinion baseded on TA. If you want to see his history check out his YouTube channel, he has some very insightful information when it comes to trading.
  5. I was just thinking with the market so low all of a sudden, xrp is holding up well, but could this be huge manipulation done because the Swiss trading ETF has been approved, and is going live on the 21st, which will allow 1.2 trillion to have access to the market. The low prices would make it very enticing for the institutional money that could be about to enter. https://www.ft.com/content/217f71a5-34fe-39ff-9e2d-fd708074602a
  6. Don't want to jinx it, but looks like we are slowly moving further away from eth, bit of luck we hold 2nd spot, and start to move towards over taking btc
  7. There has been a lot of talk about Swift GPI update on 18 Nov. Swift has said not directly working with ripplenet. But other say maybe indirectly via temenos. Now I have all my investments in xrp, I look at it this way. I have strongly believed in ripple using xrp, to change the financial world since I found out in Aug 2017. Which is making me wonder, let's say BG123 the rippler we're insiders and the 18th could be the kick start to a huge bull run, or as Brad said xrp come #1 in a blink of an eye. Wouldn't it be worth everyone, dropping all other cryptos, and investing in xrp just incase 18 Nov explodes. Xrp is a safe token anyway compared to some of the others out there, so isn't it worth the chance.
  8. Hate it how Bloomberg still thinks xrp is ripple.

    Is everybody aware of:

    Eoy fomo will kick in, people will expect something to happen when BAKKT starts on 12 dec, and speculation will start the run, same as last year.
  10. None of us know what the future holds, but I feel there is 3 situations can happen by years end. 1. Xrp $500+ I feel we will know if this will happen come start if dec, this can happen by temonos, sap & aci, when Swift upgrades it system, and these partners are using xrapid on the back end, volume of transactions could push the price up in a blink of an eye. 2. Xrp $3 - $15 this could happen by a big bull run started by BAKKT and fidelity bringing institutional money in via BTC futures, this bull run will be lead by BTC. ( Similar to the start of the big bull last Dec ) FOMO 3. Xrp stays where it is $0.40 - $0.60 as people are waiting on side lines, wondering when the next bull will start. Now there is another one XRP crashes, but personally I feel that is very unlikely, just due to hodlers and Ripple having too much at steak. Just my 2 cents worth.
  11. This is not a debate whether or not it hits 589, but a dream of what you would do if it hits. Me personally, I would be buying a bunch of investment property and living off the rental, and travelling my arse off.

    What about other xrapid partnerships

    Very true, but would be fun to try ?
  13. Real utility has never been done before in crypto. When XRapid goes live, and let's say they push $10million just through bittrex, that will eat up a lot of sell orders pushing the price higher, in a blink of an eye. ( Let alone $100 million) I really believe we are all on the verge of something huge, most of us could wake up mulit millionaires, one day very soon.
  14. In 2017 I purchased xrp at .024 watched rise to ATH in Jan then watched it fall. HODLing all the way, now I wish I sold some so I could have increased my holdings without having to inject more cash. So I have come up with this strategy. Once xrp passes $2.50 I will use a 15% stop loss. And a 5% buy in. That way if it falls fast again, I wouldn't loose heaps, plus if it move higher I will get back in at 5% from the lowest point it falls What is your strategy?
  15. I hear you, but xrapid is only at the moment using 3 exchanges for liquidity, bittrex, bitso & coin.ph, so if they do put some decient volume through those exchanges, I can see the price dramatically increasing, and I agree arbitrage will play a big part, but I feel it will be to push prices higher quickly on other exchanges to match. But at the moment all we can do is have our own ideas on what might happen. We will all know soon enough one way or another. What is stupid about wondering what the collectives view points are? Also dude keep religion out of this ?
  16. I have been thinking, what if ripple is working with Swift. What if ripple and Swift have already trialed xrapid. What if when xrapid goes live in a month or so, so does the usage with Swift. Swift did say that all banks need to update for there new system by Nov, which looks like the GPI, but what do we really know. Personally I feel between $3 - $7 is a realistic target for EOY. But in the end none of us know what is happening behind the scenes. We could hit 589 in a blink of an eye.
  17. This could very well happen, Bittrex is one of the corridors that X-Rapid will be using it as well as Bitso and Coin.ph https://ripple.com/insights/xrapid-brings-on-three-new-exchange-partners/ currently on Bittrex there are sell orders all the way up to $15,000 per xrp, and it would only take 100million to fill all orders increasing the price massively. What ripple is doing with X-Rapid is nothing we have ever seen before, the next couple of months could be crazy.
  18. Mate I've see it rise and fall, personally I don't think it will hit those targets this year, but crazy things do happen. If it doesn't it's not going to stress me one bit, but if it does, now that would make us all happy.
  19. Very true, with some luck it's still not 0.50.
  20. I don't know how created this or how accurate it is, but if correct it looks like more are testing Xrapid than we realise. http://rppl.info/
  21. I have been thinking, can't prove it but. I feel that 2017 was the test run, before big business gets involved. Evey one talls about BTC hitting $20,000 but I feel that was just a test. XRP was the best performer in 2017 and I feel that is why we dropped the most in 2018, they saw that there is interest, now they are moving them self's into a position, for the real bull run. By EOY XRP will exploded, maybe not 589 but we will all be surprised at the speed it takes off. Also be prepared for xrapid, not to move the price very much at the start, it will happen but I feel xrapid will take a few years, to overtake the speculation value.

    Volume Scenario Analysis: 2018 - 2021

    Just bumping this topic as it needs to be seen again, as a reminder of what we are invested in.
  23. You know, I feel I have loaded up a nice sum of xrp, to the point if it hits all time high my house is paid off, but if we drop to under $.10 and nothing has changed with xrp fundermentials, some how I will find more money, so in the next few years I can buy a bunch of houses. To be honest I really didn't think we would go under 0.40 but **** happens, the value is still very strong, just the market is very juvinial. Those that can hold out will be rewarded. If not then at least we gave it a good shot.
