  1. As an Aussie, I need to have a look at this new corridor. I think it is very niche at the moment (AUD->PHP isn't a particularly high corridor noting we don't have any legal ways of Filippino people to work in Australia for any great length of time), but it is still good news regardless!
  2. Bear in mind too, that there is a chance; however small, that they won't announce anything.
  3. Playing with leverage is an insane game in the crypto space. Good luck!
  4. Or you could just rename this thread 'I went all in on a cartoon figure's predictions on a nascent, speculative and unregulated asset class and now my kids will be eating dog food in 2019, who wants to massage my ego?' and call it a day? If you bought at the multi-month range of 20-24c before the bull run in 2017, you're still about 20-25% up after 18 months.
  5. It isn't true though mate. No regulation hinges on extant lawsuits. If that were true, we could have a parade of vexatious complainants (as these ones are) holding Ripple down eternally. That won't be allowed to happen, as the current lawsuits could take a year or more to finalise. At any one point large companies are constantly fighting in courts; it doesn't stop them going about their business.
  6. This could be interesting. With everything that is coming online for Q1 2019, they'd be stupid not to list the bigger coins in preparation. Aka, XRP.
  7. I think he makes very, very astute points, and that his videos are starting to go from tinfoil hat to plausible very quickly noting he is backing it up with presentations the banks are making, and linking disparate documents and press releases. Take with a grain of salt of course, but part of me wonders whether the emergence and development of things like xSpring, Coil etc are because they feel the bank to bank and corporate to bank payment game was stitched up months ago via the above. Brad is famous for his Peanut Butter Manifesto where he denounces companies spreading themselves too thin. You can afford to move into other areas of innovation when you have supreme confidence in the direction and potential success of your core business.
  8. People are assuming that SWIFT and Ripple aren't already working together. We have no idea. Amazing coincidence though that SWIFT GPI's release date of late-Nov just seems to be amazingly in the ballpark of when the switch is being pulled on XRapid. SWIFT would have had NO way of knowing this when they started work on GPI. I think we'll find they will complement one another: Ripple would love to leverage off SWIFT's easy access to clients, and SWIFT would love to access Ripple's technological efficiency via the ILP. Something big is brewing.
  9. This. The crypto maximalists can't put out the call for huge institutional money to drive their tokens to new ATHs, while expecting to operate at the fringes of regulation and bad mouthing the same institutions on the other. We wanted adoption, we're getting it. But banks and the 'system' are never going to go away, and you can't innoculate crypto from their influence in 2018. It's the only way forward if you want the big returns. And let's be honest; 95-98% of people are here for the returns and profits - not the purity of the tech or anarchist notions of a financial utopia, free of the banking industry.
  10. I mean this with no disrespect; but you are incredibly naive if you think any regulatory future of the crypto space (and let's be blunt, that is the only way this will be mass adopted and fed from a financial POV...the DarkNet/Silk Road days are over) will allow a system without KYC/AML and no transparency.
