  1. Or a not-quite-bank but certainly not an exchange, like Uphold?

    SBI Group Confirms MoneyTap Will Leverage XRP

    Not exactly - the SBI slide clearly says they are "contemplating" FX remittance with XRP used just for that instance, but must navigate legal issues first. I am very bullish but it is not confirmation of use, just interest.
  3. @Coinseeker here is the DTCC press release: http://www.dtcc.com/news/2018/november/06/dtcc-enters-test-phase-on-distributed-ledger-project-for-credit-derivatives-with-markitserv Just to be clear, R3 is the operative group here because they are setting up shop for all sorts of ledger uses, document tracking, notary, etc. They are predisposed to use XRP for settlement, esp. cross border.

    Q4 analysis/prediction

    Outstanding, thank you! Do the numbers take into account Jed's settlement, too? I'm wondering if R3 and Jed's sales might account for a portion, at least of the mystery volume.
  5. Any idea if the later Rippex wallet is outside the threat window?

    Another Seeking Alpha Article. Give it a look

    Seems fair

    Understanding Validator relationships

    Got it, so these are forked networks unrecognized by the main network (they do seem to drop a lot of TX's). I suppose this is speculative, but these forked networks are clearly not trusted by the real UNL, and I assume they, in turn, do not trust the real UNL either (or do they to even show up?). Can these forked networks choose to trust the real UNL at some point, and what happens if they do? And thanks @jn_r for tolerating my ignorance :)

    Understanding Validator relationships

    Thanks. What are these other forks, then? Some of those switchng validators still manage to process a lot of TX's - whose? Are they valid?
  9. When looking at the list of validators on this page: https://xrpcharts.ripple.com/#/validators, there are three categories for validators: 1) main, 2) alt-net (Ripple's testnet) and 3) several listed as different chains. What do the chains mean and what is their relationship to the rest of the network? Apologies if this is in the wrong section.

    CasinoCoin BRM Sandbox Testing.

    Will that mean CSC is live on the BRM or just testing it until it goes live?

    Bearableguy123 Thread

    You are correct in that Ripple has not been explicitly mentioned, at least in any literature I can find. But R3 has been with IBM and together, they have a lot of push towards the hyperledger. Axoni is interesting because they were based on an EC20 token, but in testing, it was too slow so another alternative was sought. Does this have any implications re:hyperledger? Don't know if it was mentioned, but Don Donahue, the former head of DTCC was a senior Ripple advisor and head of Global Payments Steering Group, so there is reason to see a Ripple influence in the DTCC. Not clear about your crypto comment as the DLT tech is indeed what they would use internally, and though externally they might interface through a Ripple protocol with XRP, but I don't think they will use any straight up crypto currencies at all for their settlement process.

    How It Works: Consent & Validity (working title)

    I think we need/want a precise, granular account of what constitutes voting - timelines, credentials, propagation, how are they timed, what happens in the interstices of acceptance even if all these things are perpetual, etc. Eventually someone on the internet will scheme about convincing as many nodes as possible to do something self-serving that is unethical. The downside of consensus is that no one vote can stop something malicious from happening, either. (Or can it? Is there one, last vote that tips the %80 needed? When? Where?) I'm sure Ripple, given their team, has thought through this and more but I would like to understand, too. I'm not a computer scientist, though. Hope this post in the spirit of the thread
  14. so interesting note - doesn't have to mean much - but the powerpoint this uses lists the NSA under "regulation". The same powerpoint a couple of months earlier does not list the NSA. Have they had interaction since last spring, and if so, why?
