  1. One reason I didn't comment but wanted to post this out there so if anyone in the community could respond to the validity as I am highly doubtful on this one too as it relates to utilizing XRP currently.

  3. Metaphorically speaking, you do know what a metaphor is right? You are executive Board Member who? Majority Stock Holder who? Were all in the same boat my friend and if time is of the essence for you I'm just going to suggest you may want to ride another horse in this race if you feel one will get you there quicker. This isn't a get rich quick scheme.
  4. This would be a multi million dollar, multi year project and then it also depends if this is just implementation or implementation and support. I say this based on experience working with Accenture, but who knows what they spent, just giving you a perspective.
  5. If China truly goes digital it's going to force a lot of hands to move very quickly here in the U.S. I to agree that there are forces holding on to the old guard working behind the scenes but evolution waits on nobody you either evolve or you go extinct been proven time and time again. Digital assets are the evolution of money, right now the playing field is full of pretenders but we know who the front runners are and what their niche will be based on utility. Banks will either have to evolve or be ran out of business by companies like MoneyGram etc. Pretty soon industry is going come calling such as the Auto industry which moves millions across border daily hell just the USA to Mexico for GM alone I would say is in the multi million dollar range per week. GM has more the 15k workers in Mexico, Chrysler 13k, and Ford a little over 8k just think of all that money flowing in and out of Mexico back to my home state of Michigan and back to Mexico, and then think of the friction being experienced now. Remember the old Transformers cartoon theme song "Transformers Robots in disguise, Transformers More than meets the eye!!' That Mexico corridor was open first for a good damn reason. The Cross Border Payments going in and out of there outside of the financial sector is huge!!! You really think the Big 3 are not standing in attention watching how this plays out down there and they don't need banks approval to move, once they feel comfortable with the cost benefits and efficiency "Game On!!"Ripple plays a clever game of chess which I like!!! Banks will either be deeply involved or on the outside looking in. We have this misconception that banking drives business when it's the total opposite.
  6. Very interesting!!! I always wondered about this and it makes sense as I once worked for Accenture on the Health IT side. Their pretty much IT manpower for a lot of companies. No way Ripple would have to Manpower to fast track this, because they would have to go on a mad hiring spree to meet demand as I Imagine it's going to hit a lot all at once. It's probably safe to say Ripple is locked and loaded once the regulators get their thumbs out their ass this is going to fly!!!
  7. Awesome advice! I have been slacking on my Gym activity for a couple months here. I will hit the big 50 next year and I tell you, you have those slumps where you find it hard to motivate yourself. It's been easy up until this point being an athlete since grade school through college working out was like second nature. I needed to read this!!! Thank you!!!
  8. One thing highlighted "As a means to extend SWIFT!" I for one still believe there will be some type of SWIFT Ripple collaboration. With Ripple making it much easier for customers to go from XCurrent to Xrapid the pace steps up for more and more SWIFT customers to abandon swift totally in lieu of Xcurrent which would more readily make their move to ODL more seamless and transparent. A piece of the pie is better than no pie and I think SWIFT is slowly seeing the writing on the wall, Their customers are seeing the benefits of ODL and they are starting to demand it. They can either take the time an develop a solution which in this scenario( They loose customers to Ripple because they have a proven working solution already in play, They risk not being able to bring the same value to the table as Ripple's ODL and they loose customer due to that.) SWIFT is at a crossroads ODL is something they don't offer and to remain relevant they will need to either develop a solution that works(which I think this is clearly off the table now considering Ripples progress) or (They need to collaborate with a partner that offers a proven ODL solution) Hello----> Yes---> Who's there---->SWIFT----> Can Ripple come out and play a bit??
  9. Banks will never use it!!! Bah-hum-bug!!! They will find some of those pessimist who uttered that phrase in a fetal position on the floor saying it over and over again while 1 by 1 banks start to use it.
  10. Exactly!! Talk and technical jargon can only go so far especially when your talking to bankers and financers they typically want to see numbers, graphs and more graphs and charts they could give a rats ass about the technical innerworkings as long as the bottom line is what they want to see. I can personally testify to being in meetings with execs and having someone present something that's technically awesome but they send all technical people and tech material to present and they have pretty much lost the crowd in the first 10 minutes of the meeting all but the few technical people that were invited. I have also seen the total opposite where a company comes in with the charts, graphs and data that those decision makers want to see and it's full engagement through out because they start off talking a familiar language.... This is going to go a long ways if you ask me Ripple just stepped their game up exponentially with this product.
  11. I agree with what your saying but trust me, you wouldn't believe the amount of top brass that make moves based on a kick ass Bells and Whistle UI to boot. I would say it is game changing as we know Ripples applications do enterprise things but now they incorporate that enterprise look and feel, like you said it still has to deliver but so far in the cases where it is in use it has!! 80% or more of a decision is based on visual perception.
  12. Will this be the replacement for Codius or another option for Smart contracts in addition to? https://cointelegraph.com/news/ripples-xpring-invests-in-new-smart-contract-platform
  13. 99.9%of the reason one walks in Walmart is low prices. That is their calling card and this will go hand and hand with their Philosophy.
