  1. This week I came up with a few XRPL dev inspired memes (along with some other XRP humor). Exclusive for Coil members: https://coil.com/p/moncho/I-came-for-the-Money-but-stayed-for-the-Memes-XRPL-Devs-Special-/c-0bLsn-X
  2. As Twitter has revamped its Lists feature, I decided to put one together that includes XRPL Developers and also Twitter handles of their projects. The list is a work in progress and suggestions are always welcome. Let's follow and support those who buidl and contribute instead of those who are only here to sell hopium for the follows Here's the link: https://twitter.com/i/lists/1279847872461246464
  3. I think what Ripple needs to focus on now is in opening new corridors that will multiply the network effects for XRP, specially in those countries where digital assets already have fiat off-ramps. The int'l remittances landscape is ever changing and new corridors open all the time. https://infogram.com/aq0220-remittances-on-the-rise-1ho16v8wp1dv2nq
  4. Regardless of where he went, I think we all can agree he is a very good blogger. I think he did a great job subtly combining persuasive and informative writing in his blog.
  5. Hello All, I came up with a few memes on my own with Coil and Web Monetization as the themes. I hope you have a laugh! https://coil.com/p/moncho/I-came-for-the-Money-but-stayed-for-the-Memes-Coil-Edition/M1d2BXKuV
  6. I was doing exactly the same. Turning to Wired more often but then the blocker happened. Can't have their cake and eat it too... 😬
  7. In this blog I share some thoughts on how "great tech" does not necessarily translate to "great investment". Plenty of examples in the crypto arena, where virtually any of the projects can end up missing its mark, failing to deliver. https://coil.com/p/moncho/The-Hidden-Line-Between-Good-Tech-and-a-Good-Investment/f_aS7FoSY
  8. Is it too soon for some ODL inspired memes? https://coil.com/p/moncho/I-came-for-the-Money-but-stayed-for-the-Memes-Vol-2/qxe7ysywP
  9. Remittances have been severely disrupted by the COVID-19 pandemic. It becomes clear that innovation is needed to mitigate the negative impact. Recently I came across a very insightful interview on the subject with the World Bank's Lead Economist on Migration and Remittances, Dilip Ratha (Who happens to follow a good number of crypto accounts on social media). Are digital assets the answer? Here is a link to my blog: https://coil.com/p/moncho/Remittances-The-Ruptured-Lifeline/6S-M-9Thd
  10. The Bull Run Files is back! In Liftoff! I focus on December 12th and 13th. The days when XRP really took off towards its ATH. The launch of SpaceX last week got me motivated to write about XRP's moonshot. Call me masochistic but going back to the 2017 is quite interesting. For example, I found a really insightful set of tweets from Brad Garlinghouse about his interest in a higher XRP price. You can really tell things have changed since then. https://coil.com/p/moncho/Liftoff-/YqjxIvBOg
  11. It would depend on how the entity issuing it would assign the funds to back it up.
  12. A few examples: An affordable cashless payments system for the workplace, schools and universities (cafeteria, bookstore, etc), as you can issue local currency backed IOUs. This can come in handy as people will be less keen to carry cash after COVID. A proof of concept for a parallel digital economy in a small town somewhere (fiat backed). I think you are absolutely right. It is an underutilized feature but current circumstances may accelerate its adoption.
  13. Hey All! So last night I tried out the Easy IOUs feature (https://xumm.community/easy-iou) rolled out by Xumm.Community and created my own IOU on the XRPL called Xontle (XTL) after the currency used by the Mayas (cocoa beans). As stated in the website perhaps this is the most straight forward way to create an IOU in the XRPL and I could confirm. It took me a little less than half hour and cost me 5 XRP service fee and another 10 XRP put in reserve to create trust lines.. I wrote about my experience with the service (not a how-to guide, as I think you need to read step by step carefully). https://coil.com/p/moncho/Back-to-Basics-Xontle-a-Cocoa-Inspired-Token-in-the-XRPL/DUKsP0N9X
  14. Here is the latest XRPLORE! Covering XRPSCAN https://coil.com/p/moncho/XRPLORE-XRPSCAN/cDPiTHosn
  15. Earlier this month I headed to crypto-stickers.com looking for a birthday gift for me and came across the XRP Community Fund edition of the crypto card wallet. The wallet arrived last week and here are some photos and a review. Btw, this is a great way to support XRPL devs as $5 from the sale was donated by the shop to the XRP Community Fund! Felt really good about that. Here's the link: https://coil.com/p/moncho/Unboxing-the-XRP-Fund-Special-Edition-Wallet-/4fZ6x_KJg
