    Excelente, bienvenido Nacho. Creo que ésta es una super buena plataforma para juntar a la comunidad hispanohablante. Ojalá logremos armar un buen ambiente en éste foro.

    ¡Buen día comunidad! ¿Que les parece si revivimos este foro?
  4. Thank you so much LordVetinari This means a lot to me. I am really glad you liked my blog. Will try not to disappoint! Thank you very much Julian, I really appreciate your kind words and I am really happy to know that the blog post was helpful! While there are big challenges ahead for mass adoption of DLT, there is also the will from key industry players to overcome these. Having a bank like BBVA advocate towards a regulatory framework of DLT this way, opens a door to bring up a complex topic like regulations from a different angle: When there is a will, there is a way.
  5. I would like to invite you to read my latest post in the XRP Community Blog, covering the inputs of BBVA on the much needed regulatory framework for Distributed Ledger Technology during the Digital Currency Roundtable held by the Institute of International Finance (IIF) on April 10th in Washington D.C. with the participation of regulators, central bankers and executives from financial institutions. https://xrpcommunity.blog/bbva-and-a-regulatory-framework-for-dlt/
  6. "What about Ripple? XRP, or Ripple, is another cryptocurrency that can be used as a cross-border payments solution. XRP is a hotly-debated cryptocurrency, with some arguing that it isn’t a cryptocurrency at all. The current international financial system runs on the SWIFT network and has done so since the 1970s. The Society for Worldwide Interbank Financial Telecommunication is what Ripple hopes to replace with its protocol. Ripple claims its platform is quicker and cheaper and still has all the benefits of a cryptocurrency. Whether these claims are true is a debate that will continue to run on. Ripple also claims that many banks have begun to test its technology, but despite being around for many years now, we have seen relatively few real-world use cases. The criticism Ripple receives is largely due to the different philosophies between the Ripple and Bitcoin camps. Bitcoin aims to overthrow the current financial system and Ripple wants to incrementally improve it."

  7. Interesting! Do you have the link/source? Thx.
  8. Thanks Julian! I haven't considered contacting Ripple, although I was offered support from very knowledgeable members of the community once they learned about my plans of reaching out to some people that can drive this change in the country (which I did, but haven't heard back from them so far).
  9. Earlier this year I decided to start accept XRP micro-donations for my fundraising campaign via the XRP Tip Bot and I am happy to share my first blog post on Coil.com where I explain some of the reasons why I decided to do so: https://coil.com/p/moncho/Why-One-More-Home-/8RDwA2W5O I firmly believe XRP creates a perfect donations stream for non-profits due to its versatility, global user base, upside potential and opportunity of social media engagement via the XRP Tip Bot. After 5 months and over 4000 micro-donations received, I can only say that the future of giving is here: https://www.xrptipbot.com/u:onemorehome/n:twitter
  10. I'm not just giving it away. The XRP Tip Bot is a great way to reward good content on Twitter on the spot. For example, I took @Hodor's idea and sent some XRP to twitter users from outside the XRP Community that post some awesome aviation pictures and videos. While the amount of XRP I sent to these fellows won't make anyone richer or poorer, I'm glad I've been given a tool to show my appreciation while helping raise awareness about XRP. Win-win.
  11. That would be a perfect scenario. It's a country that has plenty of conditions to implement XRP as its digital currency. And you make a great point because in El Salvador there are about 1.4 mobile phone connections per every one person. In fact, this should have gone into my blog post, I completely missed to mention the possibility of sending XRP via SMS, thanks for pointing it out.
  12. Thank you very much for your kind comments! For now it's not the plan to move back, but you have motivated me to take action and get in touch with good people that can help drive this change. Thank you for this!
  13. I would like to invite you to read my latest blog post in the XRP Community Blog. https://xrpcommunity.blog/el-salvador-surfing-the-iov/ I am originally from El Salvador, an economy where remittances stack up to nearly 20% of its GDP. I haven't lived there for about 6 years and every time I have to send funds back home, I wish I could do it by sending XRP. Unfortunately digital assets are still not regulated there despite the huge impact these would have in the national economy. The possibility of allowing additional income for remittance recipient families in my country and the rest of the developing world is the #1 reason why I want XRP and the Internet of Value to succeed. Thank you in advance for your time!
  14. Thank you so much @Hodor. I really appreciate your interest and your support towards this initiative. About your comment on the potential to end poverty through new tech, there was this text in this Wired Magazine article (https://www.wired.com/story/new-story-3-d-printed-house/) which got me fully onboard this project: In a similar way, I am really glad to see the hard work from the Good Souls Group to ensure that among the first people to benefit from the Internet of Value (through the supported XRP Tip Bot fundraisers), there is not only technologists or futurists but also people who don't even have access to clean water or a safe home today, let alone access to internet and its endless possibilities.
