  1. I bought 1500 XRP back when it was around $0.20 each; since then I've been margin trading it against Bitcoin. This has allowed me to trade, but consistently hodl my XRPs, using them as collateral instead of actually selling them. I now have nearly 30,000 XRP, acting as collateral for 60,000 XRP margined against Bitcoin. I zigged when I should have zagged this time, though, and i've been stuck for weeks. . . I made my margin buy at 0.00007666 BC per XRP, and at the moment the Bitcoin price of XRP is only 0.00007114. Is anyone else using this strategy of hodling XRP but building up the hodl by using them as collateral for margin trading?
  2. A few days ago, I posted the photo on Reddit and got overwhelming response from the community asking where can they get one, so I made a Kickstarter campaign. There will be some free coins for early supporters with only the shipping fee (about 5 US dollars). https://kck.st/2lO797Z Check it out. Thank you everyone.
  3. If we remain bullish, there is a potential of 200 % in 5 weeks: https://www.tradingview.com/chart/XRPEUR/s7C3s5yl-Le-Cercle-potential-of-200-in-5-weeks/ I am optimistic: 18./19.04.2018: Western Union Go Live & Blockchain Expo End of April 2018: Revolut adds XRP & ArabNet Digital Summit 10.05.2018: PayCANSummit but imho something bigger has to happen here or FOMO 17.05.2018: also no idea, yet But this is no financial advice.

  5. Any know when Sbi virtual exchange will officially launch? Has any information been realsed?
  6. And now for some poetic relief as the fortunes of the HODLr ebbs and flows with the highs and the lows..
  7. Let's hope this becomes a problem for us. I was thinking (dreaming) about the numbers and doing the math and thinking about what would truly represent a life changing payout. For some it might be $100,000 for others $100,000,000 is not enough. If you hold only a few thousand zerps, like a lot of people I should think, then do you think you can HODL pas the 1, 2,3 hundred thousand mark on the way to 1m or will temptation/FUD strike? I for one am not sure, never having been in that position. I think I can hang on until $500,000 but beyond that I'm into uncharted territory. As said, lets hope it becomes a problem.
  8. Jambo from Kenya. I'm looking to invest into XRP and hold for about 2-3yrs. Was first looking to buy through a cryptocurrency exchange, but am seeing it's better to go through a forex broker as it gives me better protection. However, I see that forex trading is mostly day trading and I'd have to pay overnight fees. Any suggestions on how I can trade XRP at a reliable forex broker for a long term?
  9. it is Zebpay !! another exchange called unocoin is going to add it in the near future...HODL GUYS!!!
  10. 1. XRP is faster, cheaper and more scalable than any other digital asset. This will matter more and more as more sophisticated investors get into this. 2.XRP is the only digital asset with over 100 banking relationships and more being announced 3.SBI owns a portion of Ripple and controls many banks. SBI's CEO tweeted that he is "all in" with XRP 4.Ripple is one of four digital currency companies that have more venture capital backing than any other company in the space(and these VCs aren't stupid) 5.XRP has attained the number 2 spot and remains in the top three digital currencies without even being on Coinbase. Both Bitcoin and Ethereum have been there for quite some time.(And anyone that tells you that XRP won't be added is also a fool. Money talks and Coinbase has a profit motive) 6. Ripple is still about to announce at least two more payment company deals(Likely Western Union) and those are just the ones we know about 7. Ripple has more experienced and connected talent in their company, their leadership and their board than any digital currency in the world. By a long shot.(This includes past advisors to Presidents of the United States) 8.Ripple did the smart thing from the start by aligning itself with the governments of the world as a company that wanted to work with the banking system to improve the world.(I realize this one is going to make some bitcoiners mad but it's time to grow up. The government is not going anywhere. Work with them and play by the rules or you will be watching ripple millionaires from your wondering what could have been.) 9.XRP is cheap right now. This is important because investors do like the idea of being able to buy more. Although we all know that the core reason for the low price is the supply of coins, many investors will never get that far in their analysis. XRP will pass $5 this year and never look back and a large part of the money will be retail investors that just like the idea of buying a cheaper coin and say to themselves "If Bitcoin went to $16,000 why can't XRP?" We know that is ridiculous due to supply but average joe investor will buy with this mindset. 10. This one applies to XRP but also across all digital currencies this year(2018) that have actual Utility and smart people behind them. Here is a short list of all of the great things, most of which will happen in 2018 for the digital currency investment space: -This is NOT a bubble. If you hear this someone is either jealous or wants the price to go down so they can buy in. At the height of the internet bubble there was around 9 Trillion dollars in the space and that was in 2000. The current value of all money in all digital currencies is 700 Billion dollars. WE ARE WAY WAY OUT FROM HAVING A BUBBLE.(Eventually we will get to a bubble but not now) -The investment media is already calling Digital Currencies a "New Asset Class". This is HUGE. Asset Classes include things such as stocks, bonds, precious metals, etc. Every financial advisor in this country advises their clients to invest their money across asset classes. Just imagine every financial advisor in this country recommending that their client have say 1-2% of their savings in digital currencies. HUGE. This will also bring hundreds of Digital Currency Exchange Traded Funds, Mutual Funds, Hedge Funds. -Traditional Brokers have not even gotten in the game yet. Goldman Sachs just announced the opening of a digital currency desk in spring of 2018. All of the other firms will follow. You will be able to buy Ripple in your Etrade account by the end of this year. -The big institutional money is coming too. The First XRP hedge fund was just started. Many more coming. TO SUMMARIZE....YOU ARE A COMPLETE MORON IF YOU DON'T BUY AND HODL XRP. WE WILL HIT THE MOON THIS YEAR AND IT WILL BE A NUMBER YOU COULDN'T HAVE IMAGINED!
  11. With the news tomorrow (hopefully in XRPs favor), is tomorrow possibly the last chance to get discounted zerps?! It's hurting my head. Even though I'm comfortable with the amount I hold and have used what money I had allocated to this venture, I sure wouldn't mind more. But that would require me to use money I didn't intend on using for this. Its pretty hard to resist at the moment floating around 70 cents for the past couple of hours with volume picking up a bit in line with the news tomorrow. I wouldn't be unloading alot of fiat on this dip so even if it dropped again slightly lower it wouldn't hurt my feelings on the number I could have bought if I waited slightly longer. I engaged with someone else on here yesterday saying I wasn't even going to contemplate it until after the 6th unless it dropped sub 50. Anyone else in the same mindset boat?
  12. I've been checking into XRP Chat since July of last year. I heard about Ripple and XRP in May/June when the XRP price had a pretty nice spike and decided to do a lot of research on the company and fundamentals first. I have bought in 3 times below $0.20 and a few times above, I even plan on buying up to $10. I knew jumping into this space I'd have to stomach serious volatility if I were to HODL effectively. I want to shout out @Hodor for great balanced opinions on Ripple as a company and the future of XRP. I believe this is the first of many corrections we will face along the way up, however I still watch the price genuinely excited about future movement. I watched as we traded between the $0.20 channel for months feeling one thing "The price will eventually catch up to this thing's real value." I've never quite seen an asset that can become more useful as it's recognized value increases. I think we have a bright future ahead, these guys are disrupting the fintech world in a major way.
  13. Until today, to process XRP into Escrow an individual needed to interact directly with Ripple or have fairly advanced coding skills with a deep understanding of blockchain technology. NOT ANYMORE!!! Secure Block Chains has created a very simple platform called Reservoir Lite. It enables users to process their XRP into escrow by filling out a single online form and then transmitting the XRP to escrow right from their desktop wallet. Once the escrow expiration date has passed you can use one simple form to release your escrow back into your wallet. We have consulted with some of the top XRP influencers and have listened to the concerns of the community. We have spent the last several months hardening the security of our product and have ensured that the process is completely anonymous. We do not ask for any unnecessary information to complete the transaction and we do not store any information about the transaction after it is complete. Reservoir Lite is currently the only method for the average XRP holder to access the escrow functionality of the XRP ledger. At Secure Block Chains we continuously strive to develop professional and secure solutions for the cryptocurrency community. If you have any questions about our program leave them here and we will answer them. Or email contact @ secureblockchains.com You can find us at https://www.reservoirlite.com
  14. When I first intended to buy xrp it was at .25. I had planned on spending $2500 u.s. but the wife knocked it down to $1000. Fine. I have to live with her the rest of my life. The $1000 included $100 for a ledger nano s. This was early December. Finally got verified by the end of the year. I bought LTC on coinbase because they accept USD. Moved ltc to gdax, (read it was cheaper to use ltc than btc), moved ltc to bitstamp, converted to USD, bought xrp. Origianlly bought on coinbase with CC because I wanted to get in. Now after fee, fee, fee I had 300+xrp. I want more. Sooo, an order to get more without depositing more then its playtime. I start selling high, buying low. I'm doing like 10 transactions a day. (stay home dad and kids home for winter break). I did fine. I got some extra xrp. Nowhere near enough. Then I see some posts about taxes. UGGGH! Every trade??!? CMON. I can just see myself at the end of the year with hundreds of transactions to deal with. So now I'm a true HODLer. Still havnt received the nano s (coming from France), but as soon as it arrives and it is set up the XRP goes in, the nano goes in my safe and I'll be happy with what I have.
  15. Hi ALL!! Older but valid articles I had posted as a comment earlier so please excuse me for the duplicate so to speak. I felt this would be easier for more to find. Since Axis bank and SIAM bank are partnered with Ripple then i'm sure we can all be hopeful that 1,100 MONEYGRAM locations for AXIS will be Ripple XRP friendly We can hope and HODL. Additionally, since Moneygram renewed their partnership with SIAM bank a while back and with 1,850 locations in Thailand, SOME OF THOSE/All OF THOSE could speculatively, eventually, if not already, be Ripple XRP friendly. They could be piloting for now and releasing the big news when they feel ready as Ripple always says, "We announce our partnerships when our partners are ready." Please see both links below for AXIS and SIAM. Lastly, any common sense should hint to the community that it would make perfect sense that the majority of SIAM and AXIS Moneygram receiving locations would analyze long term data to compile what sending locations are the majority and then sync up and get on the same page. RIPPLE/XRP. Anything is possible folks, and this is merely my two cents based on what has been shown to us through actual real press releases over time. MONEYGRAM/AXIS BANK ht tp://ir.moneygram.com/releasedetail.cfm?releaseid=779013 MONEYGRAM SIAM BANK http://ir.moneygram.com/releasedetail.cfm?releaseid=778854 LETS GO RIPPLE XRP!
  16. Just wanted to share some philosophy on price movements for those new to crypto, investing or TA, and who may be spooked by the recent drop. This will be a somewhat lengthy read, but hopefully one that is worth your time. It seems that many are expecting the price appreciation to be linear or exponential, however this is never the case. Price movement is always fractal in nature, meaning that it resembles a wave pattern. For those with coding experience, another way to state this is that price movement is a result of a recursive equation that operates on the output of its previous execution. As this may come across as cryptic nonsense to most people, here is a simpler scenario that explains how this mechanism works. Assume there are David and Mary. David will take whatever you give him and use it to build a 10x10 letter “D”. Mary will likewise take whatever you give to her and build a 10x10 letter “M”. David therefore only knows how to build “D” and Mary only knows how to build “M”. Give them both a bunch of 1x1 Lego blocks. Pretty soon David and Mary are both done going through their stacks of blocks, with David creating a sequence of “D”s and Mary creating a sequence of “M”s. You collect their creations, shuffle them up, put them in a pile, split the pile in two, and give a David and Mary each half of the pile. The building blocks that David and Mary are now operating on are no longer simple 1x1 Lego blocks, but rather pre-assembled little “M”s and “D”s. David and Mary again do the only thing they know how to do, and assemble the ingredients into larger 10x10 blocks of “M”s and “D”s. The end result is a fractal. Each 100x100 structure looks like either an “M” or a “D”, however each one is made of smaller 10x10 structures that could in themselves be “M”s or “D”s. If the process were to be repeated, the next round would create 1000x1000 M/D blocks composed of 100x100 M/D blocks which would be composed of 10/10 M/D blocks. A fractal is therefore a pattern created by some constant behavior acting upon its own result. Aside from producing pretty graphics, fractals are commonly observed in nature presumably for the same reason outlined above; same underlying behavior given a different input produces a similar pattern at any level of evaluation. Anyway – how does this apply to price movements? Using the example above, Mary and David are you and I and all other investors, and historical price movement is the Lego block. Regardless of how much you may believe to be different than me, and I may believe to be different than the other guy, we are all people and as such are all subject to exact same emotions and similar mental decisioning processes. At the end of the day, we will all produce either a “D” or an “M” simply by virtue of being a human. Next, let’s take this one step further. Assume that David and Mary do not build blocks at the same speed. Sometimes Mary is faster, and other times David is faster. Your job is to work through the pile of blocks as quickly as possible, so after each round instead of splitting the pile in half, you will give more blocks to either Mary or David depending on which one is faster with clearing their own pile so that both may finish going through their own stacks at about the same time. This will maximize the speed with which you are clearing the blocks, but the effect will be that on some days there will be more “D”s generated, and on other days there will be more “M”s. Perhaps Mary is generally faster than David, but after kicking butt for three days straight she is now tired and is dragging ***. David will now be the top producer for a day or two while Mary recovers. Maybe Mary has been kicking as for so long that now that she is at the point of complete burnout and it will take her a couple of months to recover and catch up to David who is now well rested. Perhaps Mary also works faster when it is sunny outside as she feels energized, whereas David works better when it is cloudy as he is able to concentrate better. Keeping this example in mind, assume that “M” here corresponds to an upwards price movement, whereas “D” corresponds to a downwards price movement. Open your charts and zoom in and out or the price movement. Notice that each movement is composed of many smaller movements, and that each larger movement is merely a building block for some even greater movement. Using the David/Mary behavior described above, does the chart make more sense and is the price movement more intuitive now? The behavior described above is modeled by Elliott Waves in TA. When you see analysts labeling waves with numbers, they are in essence attempting to model an outcome of the current fractal behavior round. Fibonacci levels used to predict retraction/extension levels are likewise based on fractal behavior. It turns out that us being human leaves behind a very distinct behavioral signature that causes price bouncebacks at certain levels much more likely than at others. Chart Patterns (double-top reversal, flag, etc) are rooted on the same principle; they may seem like BS on the surface, but human trading creates repeatable patterns simply because it is driven by humans, and all humans are at the end of the day are largely the same. I am not going to go into any further details on Fib levels, Elliot Waves or Chart Patterns here since there is ample information available online, so Google will be your best friend there. Once you understand the fractal behavior that drives price movement, understanding various indicators intended to interpret such behavior should likewise become much more natural. One thing to keep in mind is that all indicators based on behavioral patterns are merely one part of the overall equation and as such will always be probabilistic. Just because some analyst states that XYZ may happen based on the chart, does not mean that it will actually happen. Rather, what they are saying is that based on human behavior and previous price action, some proposed outcome *may* be likely. Always keep that in mind. Moving on – fractal behavior at a micro level (single round of Mary and David dong their thing) can frequently be modeled using momentum-based indicators. These will include indicators that most people will probably be familiar with, including MA, EMA, SMA, MACD, RSI etc. Here is the thing with momentum-based indicators; if the intervals are set up properly to follow the speed of the market, then momentum-based indicators may be somewhat useful. If the intervals are misaligned with the market speed then any signals generated by these will be complete BS. Stated differently, by adjusting the intervals of various indicators you will be able to see whatever you want to see and spin whatever story you would like regardless of what the market is actually doing. Needless to say, I am personally not a huge fan of any momentum-based indicators as they generate much noise and offer minimum value at best. In my opinion, there are only two scenarios where momentum-based indicators are somewhat useful: As a self-fulfilling prophecy. Most traders use similar sets of preset intervals, and as such most will “see” similar signals at similar times. This in turn will cause most to perform the similar type of action in response to the signal (buy/sell), which will cause the actual signal to materialize itself as an actual corresponding price movement. Dx/Dy based indicators such as MACD may provide an early warning sign of a slowdown which *may* point to an advancement in the fractal pattern (aka a reversal on some scale), but if and only if the underlying moving average intervals have been aligned to the speed of price movement. That’s really it. I’m sure there are plenty of day traders who have gotten quite proficient at setting up their indicators in a manner that is reflective of the underlying price and as such produces solid signals more often than not, but if you are a beginner I would strongly recommend not trading solely based on any such indicators until you get a good feel for the underlying asset and are able to intuitively tell whether your indicators are set up properly to follow the price action. When the fractal nature of the market is considered, it becomes apparent that momentum-based indicators are not particularly well aligned to modeling the underlying behavior. As soon as fractal development frequency changes, any indicators that have previously been rock-solid become instantly invalidated. Wanna lose all your money in a jiffy? Develop a trading bot based on any of these indicators and see what happens when the market moves sideways or begins oscillating at wavelengths lower than your source indicator interval settings. Nonetheless, it is not that momentum-based indicators are not all bad, it is that in the grand scheme of fractal behavior they are only valid on a very specific scale and for a singular fractal movement. They will work until they don’t, and once they don’t, they will need to be recalibrated. Elliott Waves/Patterns/Fibs are therefore better suited for modeling large scale price behavior, while MA/SMA/EMA/RSI/MACD/etc will be better suited for modeling confined price movements. Having said all of that, there is a reason that one of the richest people in the world is a value investor rather than a TA prodigy. Fundamental analysis works far better for predicting future asset value than any TA ever could. Utility, adoption, roadmap, quality of management *are* the core drivers of value, and value and its perception is what drives the price action. At any given point in time, the chart you see in front of you will thus be the result of the following: Value + perceived value --> Triggers action. Increased value = sunny; Mary gets more blocks. Decreased value = cloudy; David gets more blocks. Fractal behavior --> Drives market response to the action. Mary and David both do what they do using blocks they have been given. Speculation --> Amplifies the response. Here are the key points, and the reason that I wanted to put this together in the first place: Bubbles form when perceived value greatly exceeds the actual value. Considering all the FUD out there, large portion of people still believe that XRP is worthless (aka “perceived value = 0”). This means that (value + perceived value) for XRP is still close to (value + 0), meaning that recent price action has been driven by at least some actual value rather than complete BS. Two takeaways: (1) How many other coins do you know of for which this also holds true? (2) Once the FUD dissipates and the perceived value increases, the effect on price action will be exponential Mary and David are always at work. Even when it is sunny and Mary is firing on all cylinders, David will produce some blocks. Likewise, even when it is cloudy, the sun will break up through the clouds to energize Mary. This is the fundamental nature of the market, and is completely normal. This behavior is amplified by rampant speculation in cryptos, which is why 1000% returns are just as normal as 50-80% pullbacks. Ripple the company is gaining good traction. There are good news coming up, and it feels that those will only be followed up by more good news. The fundamentals are therefore getting stronger, and fundamentals drive everything else as per above. Forecast is predominately sunny with no rain in the foreseeable future. Therefore: - “XRP is crashing!” Are future good news anticipated? Yes --> Whatever then; HODL. - “My investment is down 50% in 24 hours!” Are future good news anticipated? Yes -> HODL. - “XRP is gonna drop to $1!” Are future good news anticipated? Yes -> HODL. - Headline: “XRP reaches $10/100/1000 only to crash 80%!!” Are future good news anticipated? Yes -> HODL. - FUD is replaced with extreme enthusiasm and you start seeing articles pop up on the internet containing the word “paradigm” -> Get out while you still can. So there you have it. I am gonna go take a nap now while hodling. Wake me up when fundamentals change please. Before I go snooze though, just one friendly reminder: I am just some internet guy, and you should never listen to internet guys. For all you know, I could be a dummy who doesn’t realize that they are dumb and instead views themselves as confident. Use your own head, do your own research, come up with your own decisions. If this perspective helps you sort some things out faster, then great. If not, then at least you know to be careful when handling momentum-based TA trading bomb...err…bots.
  17. Considering the big rise and then dip over the past few days, who's buying now expecting the rise to come back? It's one thing to HODL and it's another to buy more. So who's putting their money where their mouth is?
  18. 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)
  19. ...... and now we have the first of what will be many tests of HODLing character. At three dollars will you sell or will you stand firm like an iron peg hammered into frozen ground? Focus on the long term, see the $100, $500, dare I say $1000 finish line and all it will produce in benefits to those around you. High's and lows will most certainly occur but HOLD and reap the rewards For my part I am Holding On for Dear Life!
  20. I copy and pasted this earlier into the ZERPning thread but I feel this may be a better area to post this in. I keep seeing tons of posts on Market Cap and just thought I would share with the rest of everyone here. I give credit to Johnny David off the XRP investors groups for this great explanation. Not sure if it's been posted on this forum ( I have not seen it ) but great read to clarify market cap. See below Here’s your answer you’ve all been waiting for... It seems the main argument against XRP going up to amounts like $100 is that the market cap would have to increase to TRILLIONS to achieve that. Whilst it makes sense to think like this, it is totally incorrect. Crytos are not inherently like stocks. In the stock market we quote the market cap daily, a very important figure. However the distinction between the two are ALL stocks in a company are OWNED. Apple is worth 877.40 BILLION @$170 a share. EVERY SHARE OF THAT COMPANY IS ALREADY BOUGHT BY SOMEONE. There isn't XX amount of shares just hanging about waiting for someone to buy, you must buy from someone who already owns the share and that is how the market cap is formed. Crytos are not all OWNED, they have not all been bought. XRP hardly has anything in circulation right now. Even bitcoin, would have a market cap of maybe $30 billion max in the right context since a vast majority of the coins have not been sold, and yet they are still being accounted for in the market cap. I feel no one in the cryto world seems to understand this and I face palm daily reading posts about market cap in the crypto world. This is why XRP reaching $100 is not a dream, its a reality which can happen within 2 years if the plan is successful. First, what is the definition of Market Cap? It's: (number of coins) TIMES (current price per coin) What does this all mean for market cap? Who gives a damn what 100 billion total coins TIMES 20 cents equals, it's meaningless. The value of XRP only depends on the market penetration and the number of coins that can be utilized. That's it. The meaningful calculation for coin cap valuation can only be 5 billion * 20 cents = $1 billion dollars (again, plug in your own numbers), a far cry from the insane $9 billion bloated figure everyone is using. Now that we've eliminated the gross exaggeration of XRP market cap, the even trickier part becomes determining market penetration maximums. It's easy to say, well, SWIFT transfers trillions of dollars per year. So what! It's completely irrelevant what happens over a year. What is relevant is how much money is in transit at any given point in time. Let's say $500 million for fun. That means if SWIFT was replaced with XRP, then at any given moment, $500 million worth of XRP would be in use. This would add further demand on the 5 billion utilized coins, so add $500 million DIVIDED BY 5 billion utilized coins = 10 cents to XRP's value, for a total of 30 cents. Not what you were hoping for? But wait, there's more... Replacing SWIFT in my mind, is a credibility strategy by Ripple, not necessarily its golden egg. Once XRP gets this exposure, it will have its foot in the door and XRP will rapidly cascade into literally every other use case (of which there are infinite) that money itself currently faciilties, and at the same time radically accelerating each of those paradigms, and creating so many new ones we have yet to conceive because old-fashioned money couldn't support new ideas. Let's look at a few others: RETAIL: Who wouldn't want to aim their smartphone camera at an on-screen QR code at the cash register, and then be done. No more credit cards, no more remembering dozens of PINs and passwords, no more trying to re-activate your credit card from suspected fraudulent activity because the banks are knee-jerking at your irregular purchase of a smoothie. To hell with banks. Click, done. Gazillions of dollars. This is a much larger market than SWIFT in my opinion, solely based on the frequency of transactions that will require much more overall XRP to be in flight at any given moment. VISA, the writing is on the wall buddy... ADOPTION: Imagine when people, businesses, governments even, stop always converting back to fiat and just staying in XRP. This becomes the 'currency flight' turning point, and valuation will go into the hundreds to billions (DIVIDED by the number of utilized coins). Multiple dollars per coin. EDIT: a lot of people misunderstand this statement as replacing fiat altogether, that's not where I was going with it. It just means they are increasingly using it, and it just makes sense to hang onto XRP instead of quickly in-and-out LENDING: Here's where solid figures go out the door. With solid reserve lending laws already in place, and if adoption is widespread, more and more XRP will be needed, and that need magnified by the banks tendency to lend wealth they don't actually have (mortgages? CDOs anyone?). INVESTING: If you think lending is big, how about the huge margin investing that we've seen in investment firms. It get's maniacal EMERGING COMMERCE: Micropayments, robotic payments, and completely unknown revenue streams that couldn't exist without XRP, much like Uber couldn't exist without smartphones. SPECULATION: Riding on top of it all, there are people that understand the above, and will be in early, and accordingly the price will ride the speculative bubble before these ideas are set in stone, so theoretically, the price of XRP will perpetually be artificially inflated in anticipation of its eventual justification as the new markets embrace it. Suffice it to say, that the demand for XRP can easily eek into the trillions, even quadrillions, which DIVIDED by 5 billion, is many thousands of dollars per XRP. However dreamy and seemingly impossible these figures appear, that my friends is the potential market for XRP, beyond comprehension. So take your market cap and toss it in the garbage where it belongs. Will it hit any of these values? Who knows.. but what's important to recognize is that XRP doesn't answer to stupidity like: A TIMES B EQUALS Maximum, nor does it answer to Bitcoin, or SWIFT, or even the entire wealth of the world; it makes its own value. You’re Welcome??
