  1. CCN news: Cryptocurrecy Market Suffers Minor Correction, Ripple and Cardano Down 10% Url: https://cryptotown.io/news/cryptocurrecy-market-suffers-minor-correction-ripple-and-cardano-down-10-ccn/index.html
  2. Hi, guys! This is a big step in the future of payments so be the first to know about it and spread the word. I haven't had a reply yet.
  3. Nice comparison

    I'm not really a big fan but dude might have a point here:
  4. Apparently the whole market is waiting. Prices are steady. Now it is the best time for some good news to push price movement up again. XRP could lead the way :)...what news could Ripple publish?
  5. The crypto carnage has come to a halt for the time being, and everyone is busy assessing the damage done. The top digital currencies—Bitcoin, Ethereum, Ripple, and Litecoin—are showing an uptick after suffering severe damage over the last few days. Although it has brought some relief to see green on the screen, the question now is: Will cryptocurrencies recover to their previous highs? Will Bitcoin go back up together with the other top digital coins? To answer these questions, let us first recap the main events that led to this bloodbath.

  6. Interesting article. Of course I know the MtGox case but I wasn't active in crypto at that time. From a time perspective, was Jed McCaleb still at Mt.Gox around that time or is this after his time? Seriously, no accusement here, want a fair answer. https://cointelegraph.com/news/just-one-person-found-to-have-caused-bitcoins-jump-from-150-to-1000-in-2013
  7. If you can swallow the bearish trend for about another week(my guess) you're golden. Yes I lost a SHITLOAD of money today, but its okay. Its actually a VOID aspect for me cause I hold coins. I feel your better off going to casino and rolling dice than day trading crypto thats my opinion. This coin has to much potential.
  8. The last few days have seen some extreme movements in the cryptocurrency market. And while almost all cryptocurrencies are trading in red right now, it has been a roller coaster ride for Ethereum, which touched record highs of over $1,400 and is now trading at a little over $1,100. Ethereum has grown rapidly in past few months as its platform continues to increase in popularity and the number of transactions on the network keeps on increasing. We believe that the cryptomarket shall continue to witness such wild swings as regulators all over the world keep coming up with new rules in order to try to exercise some control on the cryptomarket and regulate cryptocurrency trading.

  9. Hello and welcome to my 1st post on this forum . Been lurking around for months, holding xrp since 0.20s, strong but realistic XRP beliver (more on my expectations on Ripple and XRP on some other posts later). Among various Ripple and XRP subjects to analyze (like price, announcements, partnerships), I was thinking about something else that's been bugging me for the past few weeks. The issue of (de)centralization with cryptocurrencies. Here is my view on that: Let's start with what I think is the most important question: - What is the ultimate goal of every cryptocurrency? Maximum world-wide adoption. Now could you imagine decentralized system keeping up with the everchanging world along with working on it's world-wide adoption in the long run? Can you see company's stock rising and company realizing more profit year after year if a company is governed by it's workers, top to bottom, rather than a board of directors? Did you ever read in any book that at any time in history since the dawn of mankind, about a nation that succeeded on itself without leadership? Can you even imagine how decentralized system is purely unnatural to a human being? People at first love decentralization. It gives them freedom. After a while, the strongest ones use the privilege of freedom to... TAKE THE LEAD. It's in human nature. I am refering to mining BTC. Try to mine it with your PC, see how DECENTRALIZED network rewards you. You get almost nothing. Top 3 mining pools in China own BTC ledger. There is no system where humans could operate on a same level, a leadership must be taken, even by force. Bitcoin started as a purely decentralized system. Look at it now: it doesn't keep up with the world, it's slow and expensive, it's real-life utility is stagnating while price is rising (2017), making it trully a bubble. Few years ago, BTC preachers were swearing in utilization when explaining to mainstream why BTC has value in USD at all. They were screaming "people use it, businesses use it and more and more people want to use it and will use it, demand will rise because of that, hence the price rises." What could they say about it now? My opinion is that BTC's decentralized system os not sustainable in the long run. (not just BTC's, enter any decentralized crypto here) Why? 1 - They are not perfect and 2 - they are not fair. In order to have a decentralized system operating in the long run (think decades), the system must be made perfect technically, so no major improvements needed, therefore no need for anyone to step up and take the responsibility of improving the system while at the same time listening to community's feedback where (just like any human) everyone is looking to get the most for himself and has his own agenda. That kind of system is impossible to make. PoW decentralized system is not fair to all participants. What will happen EVERY TIME in a PoW decentralized systems? Merging of hash-power. Every time. EVERY TIME. It's in human's nature. After a while an entity or a group of entities will control the ledger. Competitiveness is in human's nature and it's good for incentive? Its no longer decentralization than, it's capitalism. World-wide adoption? Think about anarchy movement. Those people are preaching a system with no government for decades and what happens on a global scale? Nothing. Anarchism is dying because nobody cares. You can't change the world if you're a minority no matter how loud you are. Same to cryptocurrency adoption, you can scream DECENTRALIZATION all you want if nobody cares. Mainstream don't care about your decentralized cryptocurency, they want cryptocurency that works, and you know what.... drumroll... they want LEADERSHIP! It's how we as a human beings operate. All progress in our history was made because of individuals ahead of their time. This sounds like bollocks? Satoshi is one of those individuals, no doubt. Imagine if Satoshi was with BTC since day one till now. What would be the scale of BTC adoption now and it's price if it's creator was here all the time leading the crypto-revolution, keeping up and improving btc? But i know... It's not decentralized than, you say, where this one guy or guys are running the show. Yes. That's why it will slowly die. Not this year or in two... But in the long run... That's why I hope Ripple will stick with the ledger and it's XRP for AS LONG AS POSSIBLE in order to achieve a near-perfect system before it gives it to the hands of it's users completely. From that point onwards, may God have mercy on us.
  10. Two Pump-and-Dump Altcoins to Shun in 2018 Investing in cryptocurrencies is like playing the ponies. Virtually everyone is taking a gamble to get rich quick here. Every other day, a new breed of altcoins is thrown into the market in the hopes that naive investors will take the bait. It is unsurprising that there are now more pump-and-dump cryptocurrencies out there than we can count. In the following report, I’ll be talking about two sister cryptocurrencies that seem likely to leave investors with a double whammy of misfortunes in 2018. Read Here... https://goo.gl/58jn2r
  11. Whats your thoughts? How many of you already knew this? It has amazed me!
  12. Trying something new. Don't hurt me. Enjoy. 1/7/18 1/8/18 1/9/18 1/10/18 1/11/18 1/12/18 1/13/18
  13. Bitcoin conference stops accepting BTC due to high fees. Now this is going to hurt! Talk about bad PR. LOL @Hodor @JoelKatz @nikb https://news.bitcoin.com/miami-bitcoin-conference-stops-accepting-bitcoin-due-to-fees-and-congestion/?utm_source=OneSignal Push&utm_medium=notification&utm_campaign=Push Notifications
  14. Dimon reverses his stance but isn't interested in Bitcoin. Coincidentally Ripple posts this article on their facebook.
  15. Interesting news overnight with China looking to stop crypto mining. I wonder what the Chinese Govt's strategy is? Thoughts? http://fortune.com/2018/01/08/cryptocurrency-markets-tank-china/ https://qz.com/1174091/china-wants-an-orderly-exit-from-bitcoin-mining/

  17. I just don't understand why things get so bitchy. The blockchain technology is awesome no doubt and has many uses, clearly. But let's be honest we are all here to make money, nothing else. Even in the short space of time since I joined here (middle of last year) I no longer see posts from a lot of contributors back then prior to the December Zerpening. They have cashed in their chips. Amazing - I wish it was me. This is all about making money, right? I'm not against Bitcoin (or any other ALT) at all. I wish I had invested in Bitcoin years ago when it was on my radar at $100. But I am thankful years later that it got my attention to revisit the crypto world and find XRP and this community. It could have been any coin so long as it makes me money. I'm sure that most here didn't really care for the same reason but we all ended up here! Many, from the posts I have read, are in to all sorts. That's great! I am a betting man, otherwise I wouldn't be here, but my hodling nature (and limited bank) doesn't allow me to do that. XRP/Ripple is the antithesis of what this was all supposed to be following Bitcoin's inception but that is exactly why I invested in XRP after getting in late(ish). Eventually I found a crypto that had huge potential because it embraced the world we live in, not what what it might be. XRP investors - let's try to take the higher ground, we will get there anyway. If you truly believe in your investment then whatever FUD you see here makes no difference. Hodl x
  18. Can anyone pelase tell me the difference between these market cap readings? Does it means that we actually surpassed bitcoin’s market cap? Sources: https://coinmarketcap.com/all/views/all/ https://ripple.com/xrp/market-performance/ https://charts.bitcoin.com/
  19.

  20. Do you want a simple survival guide for new crytpo investors that actually have a real life? Buy XRP and forget it. In this latest blog entry, I discuss the market re-ordering of crypto, and then stop to look at the latest wallet statistics to benchmark the beginning of 2018 for XRP investors. In addition, I cover the latest rumor about "very large purchases" that is making its way across social media. Hope you enjoy the read & please leave any feedback below.

  21. What is LEEK/BTC pair?
  22. Ripple's transaction costs are virtually nothing compared to credit/debit fees. Let's say the fees were as low as 20 cents per transaction... TRANSACTION COST - 0.00001 XRP CURRENT PRICE (1 RIPPLE/XRP) = $1.95 MEANING 0.00001 XRP = $0.00000195 ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ If 1 Ripple = $100 TRANSACTION COST - 0.00001 XRP MEANING 0.00001 XRP = $0.0001000 These are ridiculously low compared to regular fees we use today. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Transaction costs only change when there is an unusually high load. Ripple current market cap is also at #2 in cryptocurrencies at $87,306,798,133. XRP current price is listed at $2.25. The reason the market cap is so high is because of the big supply of 38,739,144,847 XRP. Bitcoin's market cap is currently $16,775,262 while 1 BTC is $13,834.40 and other cryptocurrencies have small market caps with high prices like BTC also. This means that only big masses can quickly fluctuate the price of XRP due to the gigantic market. Unlike the other currencies where smaller amounts of people can impact the price quickly When XRP is stable within the next few months after the people waiting for transactions from coinbase etc. It has a chance at being the top, most-stable currency behind FIAT (Not saying it will replace FIAT, but Ripple is doing things here). It can be used to make FIAT transactions much quicker and reduce costs for everyone. My reason of giving XRP at $100 as an example is because that's what I realistically I think it can reach with a lot of hype. If it gets very mainstream it can be a totally different story we all know you can't predict what goes on. It can easily hit higher prices and be just as stable. XRP transactions per second = 1500 BTC transactions per second = 3.3-7 (according to wiki, even if at 200, XRP is way way faster, this is the same for other cryptocurrencies) A very good point at why Ripple will be successful. This is completely theoretical from a couple minutes of thought that my brother initiated. Just wanted to share. Give some input! EDIT: If you read this early read it again, had a few typos lol.
  23. Not only are they handling bitcoin futures in the states for cboe but now they want to open an exchange. They are hiring/ looking for a team to help them develop and get the securities around digital assets in place. It doesn't specifically mention Ripple but if I was a betting man lol, I'd say Ripple is all over this like bees on honey. Gonna see real big money coming by June 2018. Hold on to your pants for the boom. Can't get anymore wall street than this.
