  1. Hi Guys. I just saw bit of information on XRP Distribution strategy by Ripple. I think this is updated information because i did not see it before at XRP Portal page. If market conditions permit, we expect our company to hold approximately 50 billion XRP by the end of 2021. This schedule is indicative and discretionary. TOTAL XRP HELD BY RIPPLE:64,439,207,292 TOTAL XRP HELD BY OTHERS:35,558,046,921*
  2. In the light of new information about different banks onboard with Ripple. What do you guys think will be the right price to get out of xrp. I think 25% at 10 cents (Assuming it ever gets there and above ) 25% @ 25 cents 25% @1 USD then depending on news and market at that time. Please share your opinions in the hypothetical scenario of price going up as i find its easier to not to sell when you can lose your own money because most of us have hardly thousands of dollars invested individually so anyone can live with losing few thousand dollars but when price gets to a certain point its much more money and we will be tempted to sell with each move as we dont want to lose a life changing amount and on the otherside if it goes further up we will regret it for rest of our lives that we could not hold it so for me its bit catch 22. what do you think...?
  3. @miguel Dear Miguel, I loved your interview and believe Ripple has chosen the right person for the job. You mentioned that you would like to increase the XRP demand in order to increase the price but I am sorry to say that at this moment this statement is very contradictory because to do that you have to make sure that buying xrp should be piece of cake for new customers but infact it is not easily available to people who are seriously interested in buying them, they have to go through hoops and hoops of cryptos and fiats to buy xrp which sometimes puts serious buyers off. I will give you my own example. I am in Australia ( in which you are working with multiple banks (but still dont have any website directly offering xrp, which is a shame to be honest. I paid 8% in fee and charges (including forex and bank fee and charges ) which could be saved, had xrp been available in Aud. @miguelI do not consider myself wise enough to tell you about your business but if that is ok with you, i would like to add my two cents. In order for people to trust you with their money i think (among other important things) two things are must (apart from stability of price ofcourse ) (1) Easily availability (even gold is useless if interested buyers can not buy that ) (2) trustworthy wallets to store their xrp ( I love gatehub but most of the conservative customers would probably prefer if their banks or companies supported by their banks can store them. (example Coinbase supported by Westpac ). Keep doing a good job mate.
  4. Hi guys, I'm pretty new to the community and started to use Gatehub recently. I made a transaction more than 2h ago exchanging BTC for some ETH and even though it appears in transaction status, nothing changed in my wallet (no BTC removed and not ETH credited). Any ideas about the average transaction time? I sent a mail to the support without any feed back yet. So i'm not even sure if it has worked or not. As on the other hand I changed XRP for BTC this morning and it took less than a 10 seconds which was impressive, i'm a bit worrying regarding the above operation. Thanks for any feed back about this matter!
  5. How would today have been different, had XRP and the RCL technology been at the center of the SEC news announcement? A ) If all exchanges were gateways and listed off ledger XRP -A- If they were integrated to process a deposit and withdrawal in one ledger close event, the price discovery of all digital assets (including XRP) would have been much more efficient -A- If ledgers started getting full with volume, the transaction fee would spike (less failed transactions because fee logic on RCL is flexible and predictable). -A- Total XRP network volume would be distributed slightly more efficiently, since some volume can offload to the RCL for arbitrage, and such. B ) If all exchanges just listed off ledger XRP -B- If they were integrated to process a deposit and withdrawal in one ledger close event, the price discovery of XRP at each exchange would have been much more efficient. C ) If all exchanges were ILP enabled -C- Price discovery would converge to a lower bound globally, for all assets, including XRP. -C- Depending on local rail speed, transactions could potentially be delivered to users in minutes, or seconds. -C- An ETF wouldn't be needed? D ) If all devices were ILP enabled -D- Anyone connected to the internet could pay anyone else in the world, any amount, during any time of the announcement, in any asset, instantly. -D- The best price would be available for everyone, and all services would be in competition to offer the best rate / fees. -D- An ETF wouldn't be needed? E ) What was the craziest thing you saw today in the BTC exchanges during the announcement? -E- Ripple has the intention to ensure XRP meets compliance standards that would enable it as the world reserve currency. Given that, and their growing relationship with banks, enabling complaint solutions of international foreign exchange, it might have had a better chance passing.
  6. Very interesting to see that the Bitcoin community doesn't agree on something vital...if they split (something I seemed to understand) what a mess... https://medium.com/@WhalePanda/how-bitcoin-unlimited-btu-will-be-erased-169977ecb3bb#.448heqrqb Charlie Lee‏Compte @SatoshiLite "There is absolutely no way I would let GDAX make the reckless decision of supporting BU code as is." Whale Panda "ll this would cause huge PR damage and set Bitcoin back several years again, like MtGox². Long term it might actually be a good lesson that some people need to experience. People are in it for the money, if they can get big financial gains and/or destroy competitors by erasing BTU, they will."

  8. Hello, I'm Didier from Belgium. I see that the ripple is very low.. so i bought some.. But now, to know i want to know any events planned this year? Is there good or bad news about the Ripple, i hear everywhere that this will not succeed because that banks are owners. And cryptocurrency is special because of decentralisation. Thanks. Didier
  9. What are the technical arguments for and against approving a BTC ETF?
  10. What do you think about buying btc/xrp instantly using the debit card.....? https://www.bitstamp.net/article/debit-cc-payments-bitcoin-now-extended-beyond-eu/
  11. Hi Guys, Few days ago I enquired from Commonwealth Bank of Australia about status of their Ripple Project and sent email below. Dear Sir/Madam Some time ago Commonwelath bank announced pilot project with Company called "Ripple labs" about domestic and international fund transfers, but since the link below i could not track/obtain much information online about the results of that project. So my questions are (1) What is current status of your pilot projects with Ripple.(have u dropped them or you are still in process)(2) Any expected timeline of finishing these blockchain projects.(3) Results of your Ripple usage with your subsidiaries as mentioned by you in article below.
  12. add here all know web site were you can cash out easy and fast, below 2 link i personaly use and i never had problem.. https://instacash.is/home/main easy and fast https://worldcore.eu/Prepaid-debit-card this one you have to do verification staff... but is realy cool
  13. They are heading down the back stretch........ BTC and ETH holders are you watching the same race we are watching? It's not Secretariat......it's RIPPLE/XRP!
  14. It sounds scary that Poloniex exchange may have lenient security as per this article... what do you guys think. I hope this is wrong because i got account with them as well and any issue with them will impact reputation of Ripple as well. https://www.cryptocoinsnews.com/cryptocurrency-exchange-poloniex-insecure-security-review-claims/
  15. just found this one. I do not know if it has already been posted. Please give your take on below...... http://www.theaustralian.com.au/business/financial-services/big-disruptions-will-take-time-admits-silicon-valley-veteran/news-story/e456930fba2956bf4bc79cc810797c9f Hu’s views are also topical for Australia as financial services companies — including the major banks — increasingly set up internal “innovation labs” and venture capital arms to keep abreast of changing technology and disruption in retail banking and wealth management. According to a survey by State Street last month, Australian asset owners and managers are leading the way on so-called blockchain, with 44 per cent having initiatives under way to support the new technology’s rise, above 33 per cent in the Asia-Pacific.
  16. just found this so do not know if this has already been posted.... https://cointelegraph.com/news/how-bitcoin-blockchain-and-ripple-may-help-kill-us-dollar "One that will be built around technological innovations like Bitcoin’s blockchain technology and new dedicated instruments like Ripple. These protocols will help change the monetary systems of the world forever, systems that frankly are long overdue for an upgrade, and the ‘American Empire’ will never be the same again." "What if you didn’t need USD to transmit value, and you could create a global digital system to do the same function, only much faster and cheaper, without the American middleman collecting a fee every time? Well, now we get to where digital avenues like the blockchain and Ripple come in. The world is now ready for a better, 21st-century way of doing business. Using the USD for international trade is like using a newspaper to get the latest news. You’re really reading yesterday’s news today and international trades are really using yesterday’s technology to perform this function. Banks, and now nations, are hoping on blockchain technology to do things faster, cheaper and more efficiently, and these newer systems will have nothing to do with the ‘ole C-note."
  17. Here a quick graph, I only had a few dates for XRP to compare with Bitcoin, but its interesting still: Overall the supply of BTC has increased a lot more compared to XRP. Its strange because I always hear the objection XRP has this vast supply side, that can come crashing down at any time. When really the supply of XRP has been slower than BTC, and Jeds and the founders XRP are also locked up. Nobody seems to worry that Satoshi might one day come and flood the bitcoin market with 1 million coins? If of the figures are wrong, please let me know.
  18. The countdown begins guys... what do you think...? https://ripple.com/insights/sibos-2016-ripple-arrived/ Ripple has arrived in Geneva for Sibos 2016 and our team is very excited about the coming week! Sibos is the biggest event of the year in financial services, and we want to share our learnings with attendees and our Insights audience alike.
  19. Hello. I'm ultra confused about how to send bitcoin to Bitstamp from my Gatehub. I had Ripple that I exchanged into Bitcoin in my Gatehub but now I don't know how to get that Bitcoin from my Gatehub into my Bitstamp account. Or better yet how to get that Bitcoin from my Gatehub into the Bitcoin wallet on my computer (if that's possible). Any help would be great. Thank you.
  20. I dont know if it has been posted recently but I just found out article below. It states India is biggest recipient of foreign remittances and lots of banks have shown interest in Ripple during Dilip Rao's trip to india. Please read the full article below and let me know what you guys think... http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/business/india-business/Overseas-remittances-costs-to-reduce-with-new-system/articleshow/53767362.cms
  21. Perhaps someone has read what happened to me, I learned my lesson. I will not let much information exposed as I have done. At the beginning of July I was robbed and I lost access to my account GateHub between other things. And why I did not used my secret password? I didn´t had it, I doubt I had printed. So, you who are reading me... you must have print the secret key and store it in a safe place. I talked with @Enej previously by private message, CEO of GateHub. So, the first thing I did was try contact him desperately but is that the reason was very important. Perhaps for some of you... its not very important, but for me that the owner of a company like GateHub answer me and take his time is very valuable. He helped me in the process of recovering my funds, both GateHub and Bitstamp. The part of Bitstamp was the most important, they had my BTCs amounting to 1.4M of XRP's. enough reason to not stay in calm. But 3 week after, I could recover my funds. GateHub security is so strong that it is not possible to regain access to the account without the key or password, no one can enter. You need open a new account and praying for help. I am very satisfied with the service. Thanks GateHub, Thank you @Enej. note: I also spoke with Nejc (CEO at Bitstamp) by e-mail. Bitstamp support will remember me for a time... more than 30 tickets in 20 days. Thanks Bitstamp.
  22. In the case of mandatory KYC requirements by global govetnments (which is bound to happen at some stage )and heavy fines for non complying Alt coin companies, i think XRP will get direct benefit as i think its one of very few companies ( or may be only one) who is compliant with KYC now. And lot of new buys can jump in because of closure of other altcoin companies. Please share your opinions..
  23. Hi Guys. I know most of us know this already but for new members i thought to post info on Ripple from Wikipedia so that they can come to know about some new things https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ripple_(payment_protocol) Ripple is a real-time gross settlement system (RTGS), currency exchange and remittancenetwork by Ripple. Also called the Ripple Transaction Protocol (RTXP) or Ripple protocol,[3] it is built upon a distributed open source Internet protocol, consensus ledger and native currency called XRP (ripples). Released in 2012, Ripple purports to enable "secure, instant and nearly free global financial transactions of any size with no chargebacks." It supports tokens representingfiat currency, cryptocurrency, commodity or any other unit of value such as frequent flier miles or mobile minutes.[4][5] At its core, Ripple is based around a shared, public database or ledger,[6] which uses a consensus process that allows for payments, exchanges and remittance in a distributed process.[7] The security of the Ripple consensus algorithm was challenged by rivals in 2014,[8] with Ripple defending the safety of the system.[9] As of 2016, Ripple is the third-largest cryptocurrency by market capitalization,[10][11]after bitcoin and ethereum.[12][13][14][15]Currently implemented by companies such asUniCredit, UBS or Santander, the Ripple protocol has been increasingly adopted by banks and payment networks as settlement infrastructure technology,[16] with American Banker explaining that "from banks' perspective, distributed ledgers like the Ripple system have a number of advantages over cryptocurrencies like bitcoin," including price and security.
