There has been so much unhappiness and FUD being spewed on XRP Chat regarding issues such as the decentralisation of the XRP ledger. Some are legitimate questions and queries but many others are maliciously crafted hyperbole disguised as genuine concerns. Most of the negative energy is being channeled via the general lacklustre cryptosphere as a whole, with certain bad actors exploiting this to throw fuel into the fire. Let us ask ourselves what we can do to help this community grow stronger. Poking a FUD bubble with facts would be the least we can do to help correct the misconceptions that are being spread everywhere by reprobates. Over the last few months I have set out to learn more about Ripple, XRP, the Interledger and other relevant details. I have also embarked on the tasks of setting up a validator node and also a Codius host, and with some sacrifices, managed to get both of these up and running. Do these consume resources? Yes, they take up time, energy and even money to install, run and maintain. However I believe this is what being part of a community is all about and if one is serious about wanting XRP to succeed, everyone of us needs to do our part to make it work. We cannot just sit back and watch what Ripple the company is doing. I believe that each and every one of us matters, and collectively our efforts can and will count towards the eventual success of XRP. To the believers and members of the XRP community, don't just sit on your hands. As Edmund Burke famously said: "The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing." Take care and God bless.
Decentralization is often the most loudest critic for Ripple and its XRP. I can agree on this point. Ripple seems in its structure more centralized than other crypto networks. But maybe it's their strategy to success. Escrow is one part of Ripples decentralization process. But what are the others? e.g. New validators like explained in the ripple insight from october 2017? I think there is a lack of information. Not an absence general, but potential new investors are flooded with FUD, watch Brad on TV where moderators joking about Brads wealth created by XRP and they may think that Ripple is a fraud. So my questions for you guys or better my request is to clear the following points: 1. Is Ripple centralized? 2. What has Ripple done for decentralization so far? 3. What are upcoming decentralization steps? 4. What should be next steps for more decentralization? 5. Does Ripple have too much power in the current phase? 6. How much power should remain by Ripple for further success? What kind of power?
