  1. Article is a year old but its now relevant. It's long...but I feel it will help this discussion. I don't believe XRP will be classified as a security at all and mostly it's just a lot of FUD in the air.
  2. The procrastination is over - I finally wrote a blog about the history of XRP! I found so many incredible facts and interesting notes that it was impossible to contain them all in one blog entry. Because of this, I plan on covering a different time period for each entry; today's blog covers the years 2011 - 2013. For those XRP owners that may not know about the history of Ripple and XRP from that time frame: You should consider reading this blog entry. I discuss the origin of the concept of the XRP Ledger, the core team that put the idea together, as well as the early funding rounds and XRP distribution. Hope you enjoy! Please leave any feedback below. Feel free to share my blog with a friend or family member, or on any other platform - and thank you for doing so!

  5. The US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has quietly begun considering two Bitcoin ETF proposals, public documents show. According to SEC documents dated March 23, the agency has instituted formal proceedings to determine whether to approve a rule change that would allow NYSE Arca to list two exchange-traded funds (ETFs) proposed by fund provider ProShares. ProShares Bitcoin ETF and ProShares Short Bitcoin ETF would each hold Bitcoin futures contracts, providing retail investors with the ability to indirectly invest in the flagship cryptocurrency — or bet against it — through a familiar investment product. “The Commission is instituting proceedings pursuant to Section 19(b)(2)(B) of the Act to determine whether the proposed rule change should be approved or disapproved. Institution of such proceedings is appropriate at this time in view of the legal and policy issues raised by the proposed rule change,” the order says. ProShares had first proposed these two funds in September — before CBOE and CME had launched their Bitcoin futures products — and NYSE Arca began seeking SEC approval to list these funds in December. However, as CCN reported, the SEC requested that fund providers withdraw their Bitcoin ETF applications and issued a statement expressing reluctance to approve these products until more investor protections are put in place. Last month, Chris Concannon, president of CBOE, penned a letter to the SEC asking them to consider Bitcoin ETF proposals on a case-by-case basis rather than as a product class. He noted that CBOE has successfully cleared several rounds of Bitcoin futures expirations without incident and said that the Bitcoin markets are rapidly maturing and could soon warrant a regulated ETF. Per SEC guidelines, the proposed rule change will be published in the Federal Register, after which the public will have 21 days to comment and an additional 14 days to submit rebuttals to other comments. Comments can be submitted through email or the SEC website, and commenters should reference file number SR-NYSEArca-2017-139 on the subject line.

  6. Quite an interesting read comparing Bitcoin with other assets and how the 'financial elite' are currently supressing the price of Bitcoin as much as possible. Which has been very similar to that seen in the gold and silver markets. https://medium.com/@super.crypto1/4th-dimension-bitcoin-manipulation-cartel-can-it-be-burnt-no-way-c53de65c166a The only article on manipulation that has really caught my eye. Worries me a little. Would like to know your thoughts.
  7. Nothing to do with XRP, but I thought it was funny: https://motherboard.vice.com/en_us/article/59jb95/pablo-escobar-brother-roberto-dietbitcoin-cryptocurrency-claims-he-met-fbi-agent-satoshi-nakamoto
  8. In this article former greek finance minister, professor and Steam employee (Gametheory/economist-in-residence at Valve Corporation) Yannis Varoufakis, who was put out of the ministry by the EU-Elites as he opposed the strict austerity, gives an opinion about Cryptocurrency. He wanted to introduce a blockchain based currency in greece by the way. You will probably notice, that his analysis is very well compatible with the vision of Ripple XRP as a digital asset to facilate payments, but not compatible with the view of the Bitcoin maximalists because of the lack of democratic participation in the Bitcoin monetary system. Here the link to the interview: http://www.wired.co.uk/article/yanis-varoufakis-bitcoin-bubble-interview About Yannis Varoufakis generally: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yanis_Varoufakis#Early_life_and_education
  9. http://www.gizmodo.co.uk/2018/03/researchers-have-found-child-abuse-imagery-within-bitcoins-blockchain/ Wouldn't this essentially make it illegal to download the BTC ledger? Also could this have implications for adding notes to transactions on other ledgers?
  10. Lately, we have been seeing the message from Brad equating Bitcoin with Napster. Also there are plenty of articles in the news cycle about Bitcoin's predictions ranging from $0 to million dollars! From what I can tell, I don't think Bitcoin would be going the Napster way! Personally, I am not invested in Bitcoin but we all know how alt's move in step with it. I can see how Ripple can move away from it if and when it starts building the liquidity Also, some of the alt trading exchanges use BTC as the base and Binance being one of the largest's exchanges doing this. With the lightening network coming soon What are your thoughts on Bitcoin?
  11. http://markets.businessinsider.com/currencies/news/plattsburgh-new-york-cryptocurrency-mining-ban-2018-3-1018865406 I didn't post this to 'Press' because ripple is not mentioned, but for me, this is yet another nail in the coffin of bitcoin. The sooner the lid closes and it's buried, the sooner we can move onwards with better technology. Mods : please delete this, or move it if contravenes posting rules.

  13. I think this is excellent news for the overall market, for BTC --> and in the short term this should positively affect XRP as well!
  14. More setbacks for Bitcoin are acting like an anchor on the crypto market. In today's blog entry, I talk about those factors, as well as how I see XRP diverging from Bitcoin's market leading dominance. For Ripple and XRP, it's been nonstop good news over the last four days, with the big news being the anticipated release of the MoneyTap application by the Japanese Banking Consortium (JBC). I discuss the details behind this application plus I have some surprises about possible business deals you might not know about. It includes the partial acquisition of a hardware wallet company by SBI, the addition of XRP to the BitIT marketplace, a Grayscale investment fund specifically targeting XRP, and the rumor of Ripple technology underlying a deal between Saison and Grab. Rounding out the list is an update for those in the XRP community eagerly awaiting the release of the Kyte wallet! I hope you enjoy - please leave any feedback below. Feel free to share my blog on any other platform, or with a friend or family member - and thank you for doing so!

  15. https://www.trustnodes.com/2018/03/07/mt-gox-trustee-sold-half-billion-dollars-worth-bitcoin-bitcoin-cash "The MT Gox trustee has sold 35,841 BTC for $362 million and 34,008 BCH for $45 million according to reports coming out of a creditors meeting held earlier today. Mark Karpeles, MT Gox’s former CEO, said the sums were “sold between December 2017 and February 2018 with the assistance of a bitcoin exchange.” Little further detail is provided at this stage with a full report by the trustee providing no explanation why the funds were sold or why they were sold at this precise point." Well, this should probably explain a lot of what has been going on in the market for the last months. What a mess. It's like a damn mutating virus that keeps coming back.

    https://www.project-syndicate.org/commentary/blockchain-technology-limited-applications-by-nouriel-roubini-and-preston-byrne-2018-03 "And Ripple’s technology for cross-border interbank financial transfers will soon be left in the dust by SWIFT, a non-blockchain consortium that all of the world’s major financial institutions already use." On my phone, so excuse the formatting.. Also, at the pub so haven't read the articles linked references.. Still, the author seems jaded (or perhaps, in touch with reality?).. Ordinarily I like PS's articles. Not this time!
  17. Today's blog discusses technical analysis' current dominance of crypto markets; but it's also where I make a startling prediction. I predict that fundamental analysis will eventually rule the day in the crypto markets; I talk about which factors that individual investors should consider when evaluating crypto choices, and then point out where XRP stands in the mix. In crypto, it may be buyer beware, but investors have the ability to reduce their risk by conducting a proper analysis of choices. Hope you enjoy the read - please leave any feedback below. Also, feel free to share my blog with a friend or on any other media or platform - and thank you for doing so!

  18. The former CEO of Microsoft is concerned about the crypto hype and warned every one of its deadly aspects. During a Reddit “Ask Me Anything” session on Tuesday, while answering a question, Gates said that the anonymity of the technology has “caused deaths in a fairly direct way.” https://viraldocks.com/bill-gates-warns-cryptocurrency/
  19. A quote from the article below: "Long term, it seems clear the Lightning Network or something like it will remove the need for cheaper altcoins, but it’s unclear how long it will take for this development to come to fruition. As mentioned above, altcoins with low on-chain transactions may have some utility over the short term, perhaps even in assisting the proliferation of the Lightning Network on Bitcoin."

    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
