  1. HI guys, in my opinion pending announcements of xrp will separate it from rest of the herd, right now BTC and Eth only has bad news coming from all sides, if you look at things closely there is no such bad news xrp related, its only going down because the others are dragging it with them, but xrp has lots of announcements in pipeline which will only impact xrp price, and may very well take it to 1st spot if other currencies keep going down. XRP's listing on Coinbase may take it to new highs but it would not impact other big coins as much as they are already listed on Coinbase. When will that happen..? nobody knows, but as you are aware that its possible anytime. SBI exchange launch and xrp listing is also a big one, as i read somewhere that SBI has 35 million accounts, which can be huge. Coinsquare is also going to list xrp as per interview of their CEO and it being Canada's one of the most reputed exchanges, should have some impact on price as well. Other two companies like Moneygram are also soon to be declared otherwise Brad would not have even mentioned it. Plus there could be many more surprises who we are not even aware of yet. I really hope the whole crypto space improves but i think that will be unrealistic to expect that as all of us know that there are hundreds of Cr****p coins that dont even deserve to be listed, yet they are trading at more than few dollars, they need to come down and taken care of by the rule of law and that will make the investors realize, which are the coins that deserve their money to be put into. Lets hope for the best and fingers crossed XRP should reach new highs. Disclaimer- Above is only opinion and is not financial advice, please do your own research before you invest your funds as crypto currency is a highly speculative area, so please do not put what you can not afford to lose 100%.
  2. I believe the battle for the #1 position will take place before mid 2018. What will this mean? Will there be a furious battle, in the media ( fud for XRP?) as well as on the exchanges ( whales trying to put down XRP and to pump BTC?). Are we destined to win relatively easy? And what if ( sorry: when) we win, does this even increase the value of XRP more? Better position as QRC? ( quality reserve currency) More XRP pairs? Function as a store of value? Will this revolutionize crypto world? Will the battle even take place or will BTC keep running in front of us, to $ 100.000 or more? Questions questions. Like to hear your thoughts on what might be the battle of 2018.
  3. Guys last January I literally sold 100's of ETH at around $9. Even with this crash ETH is above $750.00. I have no doubt Bitcoin, XRP and Crypto in general are the future. These markets are still small and the float is tiny so you get wild swings. Not every crypto will survive but believe me XRP is going nowhere. I stand by my statement XRP WILL BE $10 THIS YEAR. Don't worry - I'm actually about to buy some LTC right now. Remember - You buy when there is blood in the streets. If there is a a quality coin you want to buy - In my opinion, I'd say now is the time!!!!
  4. When there is RED everywhere, i think a big announcement from Ripple such as SBI VC start date, or XRP listing date would help as SBI is a big platform and not only it will show constant support for XRP it will also show that even if S Korea and China are not helping cryptos, Japan is going to support innovation and new type of financial products and markets. What do you guys think... ???
  5. https://finance.yahoo.com/news/researchers-finds-one-person-likely-174057067.html Can anyone here explain what this article is going on about in layman's terms? What I got was that one exchange was hacked, bunch of false trades made, somehow the false trades equated to 600K BTC actually moving to someone's wallet/account, but that also those trades somehow pushed the price from $150 to $1000. It didn't make much sense to me. Assuming those things are true though, is it possible for a single account to do something similar to an exchange for XRP? Like if binance was hacked, could someone convince the exchange to send them xrp on false trades, and also drive the price of XRP on all exchanges one way or another? What kind of security lessons did the exchanges or the blockchain take away from the Mt. Gox fiasco? And isn't the whole point of the POW system to prevent false trades? Is the POS system XRP uses an improvement in security?
  6. Hi Guys, As per article on Reuters.com which is very reputed paper," XRP rose 13 percent to $13.38 on Thursday, according to coinmarketcap.com" which is obviously a typo but sounds good nevertheless. It seems Reuters.com is bullish o xrp as well. lol . https://www.reuters.com/article/us-moneygram-intl-hot/moneygram-shares-jump-on-partnership-with-bitcoin-rival-ripple-idUSKBN1F023A
  7. Hi Guys, i am not sure if it has been posted before but when i read it, i found report reassuring about xrp's future on Coinbase. Do let me know what you think.. ? https://www.finder.com.au/xrp-on-coinbase "The price of Ripple may be dropping, but there are still plenty of reasons why you can still invest in XRP on Coinbase. OPINION Is it? Isn’t it? There are millions of people invested either way in finding out whether Ripple (XRP) is coming to Coinbase or not, and neither the company behind the altcoin nor the world’s biggest exchange is making it easy. If previous history is any indication, the arrival of Ripple on Coinbase would double its value within hours. That’s what happens when your item comes up for sale on one of the world’s biggest retailers. It becomes substantially easier to acquire and it becomes exposed to a substantially larger audience. List of exchanges that allow you to buy Ripple In a market where price fluctuates based on supply and demand, the impact is instant and immense. The price of Ripple will go sky-high; it will go to the moon, if it arrives on Coinbase. Rewind time to the turn of the New Year and Ripple seemed a certainty for Coinbase. It was one of – but certainly not the only – the reasons why the value of Ripple soared dramatically. Then water fell upon the flame, and with it, the value of Ripple dropped. But investors need not be disheartened; there remain a number of signposts that point to XRP on Coinbase in the near future. The chain of events for XRP on Coinbase? Way back in 2015, the CEO of Coinbase, Brian Armstrong, blew altcoins off as a waste of time. You can see his Tweet above. At the time, Bitcoin was worth US$218 a pop and it owned 81% of the market cap share. Now it’s worth US$14,500 a pop, but despite the humungous growth, its share of the market cap is down to 33%. Things have changed. They didn’t really begin to change until the last four months of 2017, either. In this time the market cap – which refers to the total amount of money invested into cryptocurrencies – rose from US$120 billion on September 15, to US$814 billion by the turn of the New Year. That’s 680% growth. The previous 680% growth period took 10 months and prior to that, it had taken three years to grow 680%. What these two pieces of information tell us is that not only has interest boomed, but it’s been doing so in the altcoins. Yes, it’s true that Bitcoin has done all the heavy-lifting and remains by far and away the dominant cryptocurrency; it’s lost 50% of its market cap share in the process. For an exchange, any exchange, to look at that data and to bet against altcoins would be bad business. Because if you don’t follow the market, the market will move to somewhere that does. Crypto news for 11 Jan 2018 Perhaps that’s why Brian Armstrong changed his stance. On December 15, 2017, he revealed the following: Everything started here with Bitcoin about five-years ago, but it’s now turned out that there are dozens of these digital currencies. In fact, I think there are 50 to 100 now with a market cap over US$100 million. It’s almost becoming Stock Market 2.0 if you want to think of it that way. The ones that are the most exciting to us that we have on the platform today are Bitcoin, Ethereum and Litecoin, but there’s many more that are going to be added to the platform in 2018 and I think this is going to be a really exciting space for all kinds of institutional investors to make money. Whenever we’ve looked to add a new asset to the platform, we look at a number of factors. We released our GDAX new asset trading policy just a few weeks ago to give you an insight into how we do this. We look at what the regulatory risk is, do some due diligence on the team, do a security audit of the coin, [examine] what the customer demand is and consider all those factors before adding it to the platform. – Brian Armstrong, CEO, Coinbase This is a confirmation that altcoins will be coming to Coinbase in 2018 – not just one or two but “many more.” A deeper look into the new trading policy also reveals the other factors that are considered before XRP on Coinbase could become validated. Taking into account Armstrong’s quote above and that policy, I’ve pulled out the following key indicators. Not all of them must be met, and meeting them doesn’t guarantee addition, but it provides the best indication of what altcoins are on Coinbase’s radar. Is the altcoin legal under U.S. security laws? Does the coin have a clear and compelling reason to exist? Does it push cryptocurrency technology forward and can it scale over time? Is the project scheme structure transparent? What are the altcoin’s levels of security and liquidity? Is the team behind it well run and reputable? What is the customer demand for the altcoin? Does it align with Coinbase’s values, which general manager Adam White described as "promoting our mission of creating an open financial system for the world"? What happened when Bitcoin Cash launched on Coinbase? A week later, on 19 December, Coinbase brought Bitcoin Cash to its platform. The value of the coin instantly skyrocketed. In 45-hours it rose from US$1899.86 to US$4147.46 (218% growth) – such is the influence of the exchange. You can see the jump in the table above. However, by 21 December, claims had emerged of insider trading to the point where Coinbase suspended activity on Bitcoin Cash to investigate. Forbes reported the evidence as damning at the time. Within a week of being outwardly public about plans to bring altcoins to Coinbase, the risk of providing too much information was clear. The market was too volatile and any spike in value immediately preceding the arrival of a new altcoin would carry a “guilty under proved innocent” stigma. Lessons had been learned. By the end of December, the cryptocurrency community was backing XRP on Coinbase hard. Video footage emerged of Coinbase beta testers apparently showing Ripple being traded on the dashboard. This, in conjunction with other factors, saw Ripple’s value start to climb hard. Between 29 December and 4 January 4, its value rose from US$1.44 to US$3.81 – up 265%. If the original rumours of a first week of January launch of XRP on Coinbase were true, it became untenable. Ripple’s arrival on Coinbase needed to come on the dip to avoid allegations of insider trading. So water was poured on the flames. While no specific reference was made to XRP on Coinbase, or Ripple in general, the following statement was published on 5 December by the company: We wanted to give our customers details about our process for adding new assets to our trading platform. Our mission is to be the most trusted and easy-to-use digital currency exchange. We believe sharing this process with our customers is an essential part of building that trust. A few months ago we released our Digital Asset Framework which highlights our criteria for supporting new assets. You can read our framework here. A committee of internal experts is responsible for determining whether and when new assets will be added to the platform in accordance with our framework. These individuals — and all employees at Coinbase — are subject to confidentiality and trading restrictions. Coinbase will announce the addition of new assets only via our blog post or other official channels. As of the date of this statement, we have made no decision to add additional assets to either GDAX or Coinbase. Any statement to the contrary is untrue and not authorized by the company. In short, the statement says: “there will be no insider trading, we promise.” Note the use of the word “trust” twice in the opening paragraph as an indicator of this statement's political intent. Note the desire to state and state hard that the company is aware of and sticks to confidentiality and trading restrictions. And note the confirmation that anything you read elsewhere is untrue. The technical term for this kind of statement is “covering your ***". Which is why XRP on Coinbase is still a thing. There is nothing in Coinbase’s second statement that contradicts Armstrong’s initial announcement from mid-December. The company is bringing altcoins to Coinbase in 2018. It has published a public checklist of factors that could impact the altcoins selected so you can play along and tick them off with the watchdogs. (It’ a checklist Ripple passes with ease.) But in releasing this statement at all, Coinbase has effectively acknowledged that it cannot make the move in an environment where it can be accused of insider trading. Statements like the one released on 5 December therefore serve a dual purpose. It covers all bases, and it sends the altcoin to be added into a timely decline. The reasons for putting XRP on Coinbase greatly diminish the reasons against. The demand is high – currently it’s the third biggest cryptocurrency in existence. Its application is relevant and mainstream, in that it can replace the currently archaic systems for transferring currency across borders. It has a company behind it to drive that application and manage its PR, and ultimately, its fees are way lower than Bitcoin, its transactions occur in just a fraction of the time, and the initial buy-in is way more palatable to fringe investors. Ultimately XRP on Coinbase is smart business. And it’s in the exchange’s best interest to be proactive in moving this and other rising altcoins to its exchange as quickly as possible, before the people look for them elsewhere.
  8. HI Guys. I am not sure if its already posted here, and if it is I could not find it, but I am sure all of us can use some good news today. IG group /IG markets from UK (which is big in UK ) has started CFD options on Ripple. You can not buy it to store but it does let you hedge your positions which is going to be important for banks as they need some trustworthy market place to hedge bets even if they are transferring funds for short time. IG is big group they listen on LONDON STOCK EXCHANGE with the value of 393 million pounds. Please find the paragraph below for details and link with their details. In May 2005, after two years of private ownership, IG Group and CVC Capital Partners re-floated the company on the main list of the London Stock Exchange with a valuation of £393 million.[6] In October 2008, IG Group acquired FXOnline Japan KK, a Japanese retail FX business.[7] IG Group has been trying to gain access to the potentially lucrative US market where IG Group's main products, contracts for difference and financial spread betting, are currently not legal. In 2007, it purchased HedgeStreet, a small US based company that developed an electronic marketplace that allows online retail investors to trade financial derivatives. It renamed this the North American Derivatives Exchange or (NADEX) and has been attempting to use this to develop a product that looks like its binary option "digital 100s" product but that meets the US financial regulations and can be offered to retail traders. In May 2010, it obtained permission from the US Commodity Futures Trading Commission to make various technical changes that move in that direction. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/IG_Group They have only listed only few reputed coins and luckily Ripple is one of them. I have used IG markets for CFD trading 5 years ago and their support is awesome and Ripple getting listed there is a good sign, as I was trading forex when they listed BTC and few months after their listing, BTC picked up, of course not because IG markets only but what i mean is that they seem to be one of those exchanges who would only launch products with upside potential in near term so HODL guys and hope for the best in this speculative market.
  9. Stocks, commodities and..... Currencies fluctuate based on an insane amount of factors, Crypto -XRP is no different. So why all the freak out? Whats so hilarious to me are the folks who, in the light of hard fact and visual evidence deny the use case for XRP. On one board a zerpinite posted three videos showing people (consumers) at various places on the globe actually using XRP to purchase real goods and services and yet all the BTC drone could do was attack him personally. No evidence based response on how BTC or even BCH or ETH or LTC or ADA or XLM nope not anything else was nearly so much more functional...... No visual use case presented, no company sited, no consumer nothing. My guess is (as many are pointing out) Coinbase wants to nip any insider trading rumors in the bud. Even if that not the case here, XRP is going to move higher no matter what, people want it, banks want it, it fits for a 21st and beyond global currency model. here let me help: Close your eyes, Breathe, Relax (X3)
  10. So for you guys that follow my posts, I wrote a few times that the price would go from $2-$5 on this run. BTC has been super quite. Haven't heard anything from the Core developers. I'd say something is in the works. Wouldn't be surprised if BTC went on a tear before too long. Think we have a monster 2018 into 2019. XRP $10 by summer. think we top out round $25-$30 in 2019. BTC who knows I'd say at least 100k this year.
  11. Going for 3 out of 3 having guessed correctly that XRP will hit $1 and rank #2 by Dec 2017. I think XRP will overtake #1 spot from BTC in Jan 2018. What do you think?
  12. Dear all, This is just a thread to report issues withdrawing BTC from Gatehub Fifth to a native BTC wallet. I initiated a request on 12/29 which was accepted immediately by the network but after 1 day no sign of the tx on the BTC blockchain. I created a ticket through the gatehub.net chat box and got a ticket number with some automated standard email. 3 days later (1/2) still no sign of the BTC tx. I responded to the automated email and asked an update about my ticket. 24H later (1/3) still no response. I then went to the dedicated website (support.gatehub.net powered by zendesk) and created a secondary ticket basically copy/pasting my initial request (just to cover the remote case that my initial ticket did not flow properly into their systems since i had created it through the chatbox) There i am with no info. I went to Twitter/Facebook and saw massive amount of people basically complaining about the same thing. And it seems that Gatehub is basically on radio silence. This is of course the worst course of action and even an overload of new users should not prevent them from at least acknowledging the issue. They actually took the time to sent a happy new year to everyone on twitter which is ridiculous and only increased the amount of anger since they basically totally ignore customers complaints at the same time and do not respond to a single message. It's obvious that they will lose a lot of customers once and IF they go through their backlog. Note that Chris Larsen is a shareholder of it so they are not supposed to be totally scammy... If you have been encountering similar issue and/or if you have managed to get some info from Gatehub over the last few days thanks for sharing here!!
  13. buona sera a tutti , sono un principiante e nuovo nel mondo delle cryptovalute , vi scrivo per avere dei consigli su come impostare la trust line del mio wallet in gatehub ho provato a mettere l'indirizzo del mio wallet ma non lo accetta e non ho altri indirizzi .... avete dei consigli ???
  14. Here's how I do it...Buy ETH or BTC on Coinbase, send to Binance and exchange to XRP then send to my wallet. What I've noticed is it seems that Coinbase has inflated prices when it comes to BTC and ETH. For example as I'm writing this, Coinbase has ETH at 720 and on Binance it's 669. This is a huge difference. I buy with USD. This way of trading has been very easy for me, (knock on wood) with no hiccups, I've done 4 trades. Should I be doing it a better way to get a better price? Any help would be appreciated. Thank you!
  15. Need some advice here. Is xrp still in consolidation phase or shud I hodl? It looks like BTC is abt to go on one of those runs that give an opportunity to increase xrp holdings. Or will XRP be following it this time? Both charts seem to be signaling up swings. or am I wrong?
  16. https://cointelegraph.com/news/1-mln-bet-on-bitcoin-in-december-2018-is-it-speculation-or-mania FOMO Trap.... Ripple are more likely to be $10 by end of 2018. So advice for noobs... Get your XRP now and HODL.
  17. Prop trading is coming from the vampire squid, Goldman Sachs ... http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2017-12-21/goldman-preparing-launch-cryptocurrency-trading-desk Obviously, the top crypto names with the larger caps and most liquidity would be considered in this space. As futures kickstarted for BTC, the arbitrage strategy will be one of the very first profit making strategies for GS as the margin/spread narrows due to profit seekers taking advantage of risk free profit from price inefficiencies. Look out as the new crypto asset class is born with the top names absorbing most of the new money from prop traders and the recently announced institutional investors or money managers including our retail speculators. Interesting times ahead during asset growth stage with the best in class (most value and demand) topping the leader board...
  18. Hi All, Within a short ammount of time the coinmarketcap.com total market value has gone from roughly 660B $ to <600B $. Is all of that converted back into fiat, or is there some of it going other places ? (Unlisted/New coins outside coinmarketcap.com) Thanks in advance. BR
  19. Back in April & May this year, when the big money really started getting in to crypto, I began noticing extreme correlations between various currencies. These movements were far too fast to be replicated by human eyes and fingers, so I concluded that they were bots. At around the same time, I was approached by an organisation which, as they put it, "invested in baskets of cryptocurrencies" according to my risk appetite. They had algorithmically designated all the various cryptocurrencies as being either high risk, medium risk or low risk. They may have had other categories as well, though I can't recall all the details of the conversation. I did end up investing with them though, and got in early on a couple of ICOS for which they had some sort of preferential / promised allocation in place. The reason I mention this is that I see it happening again. The correlations are back to being around 95%+ between various groups of currencies. For example, take a look at the price action of DGB, then compare it to SC. Similar risk profile. You will immediately see what I'm talking about. This is not human eyes and fingers, but bots automatically bidding/selling at exactly the same time to either take the price higher or lower at exactly the same time. The same is true of BTC, ETH and XRP right now - and because these appear to have a similar risk profile, they all move together. They will, of course, not move at the same time or in the same way as differently-profiled currencies. We've just seen a huge spike up in XRP of course, and that wasn't replicated in ETH or BTC. The bots are probably employing some form of sophisticated AI which can take into account sudden decoupling events based on news/announcements. I imagine this would be some form of sentiment analysis which examines news links, the reputation(s) of the entity/(ies) posting the link; the proximity and prevalence of positive and negative keywords etc. I have built a tool like this myself in the past for a social profiling business, so I certainly know they exist. I'm not saying that the correlation will always be there... but at the time of writing, we're looking at approx 100% price movement correlation. What can we take from this? Well. Two things: 1. To be very on guard, watching/waiting for news or events that impacts BTC's price negatively. Such as the current battle between BTC and BCH. Be aware that ETH and XRP will move in the exact same direction in the absence of positive news. Support levels in TA do not appear to matter. 2. Someone (could be human, but probably AI) believes that these three currencies, and possibly others as well, are in exactly the same (or very very close) risk profile category, hence the correlated moves. That's either worrying or encouraging I guess, depending on your outlook. Here is a USD chart example for past three days (faded background is Bitcoin/USD, opaque is XRP/USD). Shows a 99% price direction correlation, and a 95% price movement correlation.
  20. Volatility joke

    It's Jimmy's birthday, and he asks his dad for one bitcoin. "Jimmy, one bitcoin??!?," blurts out his dad. Next, he checks his screen. "Why, that's, er.....that's 18,349 dollars!!! Son, let me tell you, er.....15,832 dollars is not an amount that grows on trees. And what in heavens would you do with, er......17,277 dollars anyway?" Read somewhere and edited.
  21. I'm always amazed by the fact that when Bitcoin loses value, it affects other coins so much including XRP, as also during the past 12 hours. I think this has partially to do with people having (limit) sell orders ready on XRP-BTC pairs. When BTC drops, they get triggered because it seems that XRP has risen significantly in value (while it's the other way around: BTC has lost value). If that happens massively, XRP will just follow a BTC drop. Given the fact that we want to come loose from BTC dependence some more, and given that BTC might have more bad times ahead, should't we have to call on the community to STOP PUTTING limit sell orders on the XRP-BTC pairs and, if you desire them, put them on the XRP-dollar pair instead? Feel free to feedback, as I'm a hodler and not a daytrader so I might be off here. (edited, put wrong stop loss in it)
  22. I can't decide whether or not I want to buy BCHBCC now. I feel like 10K is on the horizon. There is so much news and influence moving to BCH/BCC. If you offer an opinion please back it up with reason and not just opinion. If BCH made 10K I could invest enough into it to really see some major gains but I don't want to compromise my BTC portfolio unless ther is a good "bet". Thanks guys.
  23. Brad Garlinghouse, @Hodor, @TplusZero have all mentioned it earlier: 2018 is going to be about the use cases and not about speculative ideas only. I just read that the founder of bitcoin.com is calling on selling bitcoin because it did not make it's usecase ( https://nordic.businessinsider.com/the-swedish-founder-of-bitcoin.com-one-of-the-largest-sites-in-the-industry-has-sold-all-his-bitcoins-because-its-as-good-as-useless--/ ) Although BTC it is still an ok store of value, I guess now is the time.. let's call for the flippening, and push XRP as the new standard.
  24. Having watched the horse race for months on end, it is interesting how particular coins are propped up based on the simple law of (limited) supply and (excessive) demand. Now that mainstream anticipates a large influx of new money (albeit from institutional investors, prop traders, central bankers, private funds/managers, retail speculators) into this new crypto class in growth stage over the next five years, pundits are moving in-between coins causing large distortions and swings as fomo and greed attracts the best and worst of us. In a regular market as new money moves in, all coins would typically see swings of similar magnitude more or less. Regardless, the market is still in the infancy growth stage leading to large disparities. What we have witnessed lately are large whales or consortiums moving from one coin to another causing large selling of one coin and massive spikes in others. While this may largely be the (greedy) attraction to chase the next big game/move/double digit gains, it is odd how the horse race heats up in the merry go round. As XRP hodler, I am happy with the calm/crypto selloffs before the real spikes as XRP appears to be the only true token with the most utility and future prospects. Having said that, Ripple will need to keep XRP in the top 3-4 spots with at least 5% of total crypto market cap so their fair allocation will be placed/made in the coming periods. Rightly, other coins are jockeying for this new incoming money and will look for puffed up (fake) news to spike their price/valuations. Getting XRP into household names will surely change people's street sentiment that XRP is only a banker's coin but in fact a better overall coin with better value/utility than Bitcoin, Ethereum and others. Think 2018 will be the year when it all starts just like Apple with their iPhone's debut and Amazon with their online bookstore.
  25. Changelly

    I purchased some bitcoin through coinbase. I now want to convert it to Ripple. I understand that I have to do that through Changelly. Changelly is asking for my XRP address and destination tag. Where would I find that. How would I then go about activating my Ripple Wallet? Thanks in advance as I'm brand new to this.
