A lot talk about XRP price on here. In order for XRP to work, $100 per XRP is the minimum need. No one at Ripple talks about price in the public, but behind close doors they know whats needed. All other prices $400, $500 $1000. These are all prices if Ripple really dominate this space. Right now they are doing that. Ripple/XRP is a smart investment. There is no coin/token doing anything like Ripple. The team, the money, the vision, the focus, the goal. Ripple has it all. When investing in a token/coin its the team that drives it. Ripple do not try to please spectators. They just have they goal and don't stop. Ripple go 24/7 If you doubt XRP/Ripple, I don't mean to be rude, but your ignorant.
Hi fellow UK ZERPERS... For those of you who are into it, BBC Panorama tonight is titled ‘Who Wants to be a Bitcoin Millionaire?’ could be total FUD for Crypto but I would be interested to see the BBC’s Liberal analysis of Cryptocurrency to see if they truly understand the fundamentals of what Bitcoin was originally designed to achieve. Also be great if our Lil’ Zerps get a mention too #XRPtheStanrard
BlueSmiley posted a topic in PressXRP on BBC. That's pretty big! A crypto-currency called Ripple has become the second most valuable virtual cash system. Over the weekend the value of the digital currency hit more than $100bn (£74bn) according to some market monitors. This valuation is higher than another popular crypto-cash system called Ethereum. Each Ripple coin is now worth about $2.34 - far higher than the half a US cent they were worth a year ago. Bitcoin still remains the most valuable crypto-currency. The value of the 16.8 million bitcoins in circulation is now worth a nominal $231bn. Each bitcoin has a value of about $13,580. Bank payment Ripple has sought to establish itself as a safe alternative to other crypto-currencies by emphasising its links to existing financial institutions. Ripple was set up to help banks speed up and modernise how they pay each other. So far, about 100 banks have signed up to use its payments system. Bank of America and UBS are among its customers. ________________________________________________________________________________________________ Analysis - Rory Cellan-Jones "Forget Bitcoin, that's old hat - it's time to get into Ethereum, Litecoin and Ripple." So goes the message from the crypto-currency enthusiasts when critics mention Bitcoin's failings as a currency and its profligate use of energy in the mining process. They also like to use a dubious measure - market capitalisation - to show just how significant a force a crypto-currency like Ripple has become. When investors talk of the "market cap" of a company such as Apple - about $870bn right now - they reach the figure by multiplying the number of shares by their price to calculate the value of the business. That price can move around pretty sharply but you will have little trouble selling your shares and turning them into hard cash. Ripple's market cap has been calculated by multiplying the number of coins in existence by the current dollar exchange rate. But unlike Apple, Ripple has no reliable assets or revenue streams backing up that rate, and changing it into "fiat currency" - that dreary old concept that is supposedly heading for extinction - may prove tricky if everyone heads for the exit at once. So as with everything connected with crypto-currencies it's best to take their market caps with a sackload of salt. ________________________________________________________________________________________________ Growing adoption of Ripple seems to have driven its rise in value. Over the weekend, three of Japan's big credit card companies revealed they had signed up to use it to handle payments and settlement. Prior to this announcement, some South Korean and Japanese banks announced a pilot project that would use Ripple to handle cross-border payments. Both events are believed to have prompted the bump in value. Unlike other crypto-currencies, Ripple coins or tokens are not mined by the members of the network that processes transactions. Instead, the coins have been pre-mined and are slowly being released as the network is used. Eddy Travia, head of crypto-cash financier Coinsilium, told the Financial Times that the higher value could be a problem for Ripple which had done well to win banks over to its technology. "The worry is that when the price goes up so much it moves the focus from the technology to just the speculation," he told the paper.
Xrphunter posted a topic in Alt-Coins and General FintechJointly training advanced engineers Continually recruiting companies to participate October 11, 2017 SBI Holdings Co., Ltd. SBI Ripple Asia Co., Ltd. SBI Ripple Asia Co., Ltd. (Headquarters: Minato-ku, Tokyo, President: Yoshitaka Kitao) and its subsidiary to expand its next-generation payment platform in the Asian region President: Takashi Okita) announced today that the "Beyond Blockchain Technical Program" ("BBC Program") was launched today. Background and aims of establishing the BBC program Various digital currency mechanisms have been put to practical use in Europe, the US and Asian countries, and many of the foundations are supported by "block chain related technology". Although domestic financial institutions and FinTech enterprises are getting excited about the momentum to commercialize block chains, distributed ledger technology (DLT) and virtual currencies, etc., there are still few cases of that, and the systematic It is in an environment where learning is difficult. Therefore, from the viewpoint of international competitiveness, the shortage of engineers toward practical use can be said to be a common problem in domestic financial and IT industries. The BBC program is a program to cooperate with program participants, aiming to train engineers on cutting-edge technologies such as block chain / distribution register technology (DLT) and virtual currency. In the BBC program, we will provide systematic knowledge of block chain related technology through technical workshops and study meetings by experts. In the future, we will provide a practical development environment for block chain related technology and will conduct joint verification experiment etc. Also, we will continue to work with more companies by accepting applications for participation continuously. The participating companies at the start of the BBC program are as follows. Inc. Tokyo Incorporated Internet Initiative Japan Inc. INTEC SAP Japan Co., Ltd. SCSK SBI FinTech Incubation SBI Trade Win Tech Co., Ltd. NTT Communications Corporation NTT DATA RETRONICS CORPORATION FPT Japan Co., Ltd. CCS Secom Co., Ltd.SOLUTIONS Co., Ltd. TIS Co., Ltd.
