  1. He seems to keep it pretty straight and honest when he speaks about crypto. https://bitcoinexchangeguide.com/vitalik-buterin-says-ripples-xrp-is-a-better-option-than-bitcoin-due-to-institutional-adoption-and-partnerships/
  2. Name me one financial institution or retail, etc using Bitcoin for settlement even with the so called liquidity you mentioned? What about the cost factor? I'll wait Tick, Tock? I will make it even simpler give me one that is exploring, testing, or have plans to use bitcoin for settlement purposes?
  3. Why would R3 prop up any other digital asset? I am sure corda could settle with any but explain to me why as a vested company you would prop up any other over XRP? It just does not make logical business sense that they would prop up any other when it comes to using DA's for settlement. So when Digital asset -R3-and settlements are mentioned in the same breathe it's probably safe to assume this is going to be XRP if it doesn't mention DA's then I wouldn't reach that far. Unless the term Digital Asset is being used in a totally different manner here and then who knows. My bet is on XRP being the DA discussed here though for the simple fact it serves R3's agenda to push XRP for settlement "You don't go to court and fight for something you have no purpose for."
  4. The good news is rolling in!!!!
  5. https://dailyhodl.com/2019/02/21/ibms-head-of-blockchain-says-bitcoin-will-hit-1-million-teases-support-for-xrp-and-btc/ Looks like IBM's world wire isn't joined at the hip to stellar after all. Maybe this is just lip service or a subtle way of saying it won't cut the mustard when the rubber meets the road.
  6. https://dailyhodl.com/2019/02/21/mercury-fx-real-world-use-of-ripples-xrp-powered-xrapid-significantly-faster-and-cheaper-than-swift/ “We did our first live commercial payments a couple of weeks ago. So we are now making payments for a UK corporate to Mexico to import Mexican food. And they are moving a lot faster than payments would go through Swift, at a much lower cost. So we’ve already had the Mexican channel open up. It is live. It is being used. And I think today or tomorrow we’re testing the Philippines with an eye to going live in the next week or so.”
  7. So why did Bitcoin reach 20k at one point was it marketcap, utilization, or speculation? I think 90% of that was all speculation somehow we seem to miss that in the XRP valuation. I know the less speculation the better in the long run but I have to think a 10k value has speculation padded in there. I'm not saying that it will happen but that added factor will drive the price higher once the speculation fire catches. Remember bitcoin 's speculation comes from what we thought it's potential could be "Wait until they get a whiff of XRP's potential." I believe the hype behind XRP is purposely held in check as to keep the speculation at a distance and avoid the issues seen with the wild swings in other digital assets while liquidity is being worked out but as the liquidity pools increase I also believe the speculation value will ramp up too.
  8. Agreed, I personally don't see 10k but who knows. Now anywhere from $100 to $500 is doable to me but timeframe wise I would definitely say we are years away from seeing that value. Again this is just my opinion and nothing more price could boom tomorrow. At this point in time the market does not know how to properly value crypto but the author of the video makes a good analogy. Will all things cross border go through XRP? I highly doubt it but we should at the least gain a 5 to 10 percent foothold of that market on the conservative side and that within itself is a enough to make the value rise then adding on the other applications of XRP that will arise. Man I said I would not get into price speculation and look at me
  9. Again not going to debate price that has been done enough just hoping people will focus on the mechanics within the video. I do think were at least 2 to 3 years out seeing anything over $10.00 but I could be very much wrong as I have no clue how the markets will move or what competition will rise to contest XRP, nor how upcoming regulation will play out for us . One thing I can say is I do believe in Ripples direction for the asset. In the Vid it pretty much mentions the 10k as lofty but it's definitely not out of reach if XRP becomes the oil for all retail and institutional cross border money movement, then factoring in the other initiatives coming into play with the asset. as I have mentioned before and so have others banks and remittance companies are just the tip of the iceberg for this asset.
  10. I really don't post many vids from youtubers as I find most of them more entertaining and fluff than anything else. There is no reason there should be a video once a day or even once a week that goes over an hour in length, if most of these guys would just cut the fluff and shout out's and stick to the topic they could cut their time to 30 minutes or less and keep their audience engaged. I found this video to be rather good, relevant information minus the fluff, we all have our own opinions on what the price is going to be so no need for the back and forward on that, this vid just gives you a logical what if scenario.
  11. I'm not going to go speculation nuts because I don't know what their using behind the scenes for this but rest assured Amazon is going to use whatever gives them the most bang for their buck. Whatever is closer to 0 fee's and speeds up the process of money and product in hand. Reading more on the link you presented I am in no doubt this does not have anything to do with ripple at this time. The applications main function is currency conversion nothing to do with faster settlement, definitely room for opportunity with what ripple has to offer but I will leave that in the hands of ripples marketing and sales staff. Take into account that you can receive a package from Hong Kong via first class mail here in the states quicker than settlement occurs here and you can see there is room for tons of opportunity!! Note: Generally, Amazon Pay first settles your account 14 days after the first business days on which the corresponding transactions were completed. If you set up (or change) your bank account any time, your disbursements will be suspended for three days for security reasons.

  13. People really need to examine the history here, J.P Morgan who once had 10 or more(cant remember the exact number of ranking officials at a Ripple meeting), J.P Morgan Jamie Dimon consistently talking down about Crypto and Blockchain and Now J.P Morgan and Jamie developing and pushing their own Crypto??? I don't know about you folks but I am buying more XRP. What J.P Morgan just acknowledged here is Ripple and XRP are what they say they are!!! " Imagine walking into a ford dealership wanting to buy a ford and the salesman talks a boat load of negative stuff about GM cars, but you look over and notice when the General Manger leaves for lunch he is driving a brand spanking new Cadillac" If I am the potential buyer I'm walking out the door heading to any other dealer except a Ford dealer at that point Just a comparison of how J.P and Jamie look right now.
