Just a wee hypothesis for your consideration on the rapidity of potential developments. I was considering if I were in charge of CoinBase (I know, I know bear with me) and I had hired and trained 500 employees in order to cope with the added demand of adding XRP, when would I pull the trigger on the announcement/addition? Personally I would wait and do it at exactly the worst possible time for my competitors in order to utilise the added capacity the new employees bring to the max. I would wait until another big announcement breaks and starts to rise the XRP price. Say for example WU or whoever announced Ripple was the bees knees and intended to use XRP in everything they did and this pushed the price up by 40% or something. People rush in to purchase XRP at their usual broker sites thus pushing CB’s competitors to their limits processing payments and signing up new customers. Yet CB is coasting because of their 500 new staff. This is the exact moment I would pull the trigger. The double hit of customer news and CB addition would be a massive boost to XRP’s popularity and price. CB’s already maxed out competitors would be have to shut down their signing up processes as we saw in December. So it you want to buy XRP you’re left with limited options. Wait a month for Etoro or Binance to get all their **** in one sock while the price rises exponentially or go to the only broker in your market which can sign you up and take your fiat currency instantly. CB could clean up in this scenario and I believe that is what they are waiting for. But the real question is what it would mean for us Hodlers. I believe it would mean a spike unprecedented in Crypto space history and a very, very fast one indeed. Under these conditions I see no reason whatsoever we couldn’t go from 60c to over $10 in a matter of weeks and the biggest restraining factor would be the ability of the relevant sites to take the money. Only posting this for light hearted discussion, only my opinion.
