  1. http://fintechist.com/indian-securities-regulator-launches-fintech-panel-embrace-innovation/ No mention of any specific tech or companies, or even blockchain or DLT, but when their securities regulator forms a panel, it's an opportunity. India is one of the biggest possible markets, and alt coin adoption is not anywhere near mainstream there yet!
  2. CONTEXT: this is to address the speculation on a possible joint Ripple/Gates Foundation announcement The Gates Foundation So what is the Gates Foundation? Going off it's Wikipedia web page, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, also known as the Gates Foundation, is a private foundation founded by Bill and Melinda Gates. It was launched in 2000 and is said to be the largest transparently operated private foundation in the world. The foundation has a number philanthropic goals with one being, https://www.gatesfoundation.org/What-We-Do/Global-Development/Financial-Services-for-the-Poor So what is one of the GF's strategy in accomplishing this? Targeting the Digital Payment Systems, https://www.gatesfoundation.org/What-We-Do/Global-Development/Financial-Services-for-the-Poor The Ripple/Gates Foundation Connection Is there any connection between Ripple and the Gates Foundation? Well...... Besides the occasional Ripple Insight articles on the Gates Foundations progress on connecting people to financial services, the GF themselves have had their eye and interest on Ripple. Bill Gates himself has noted the significance of distributed financial technologies such as Ripple as a model to connect the world to financial services. https://ripple.com/insights/why-bill-gates-believes-2016-will-be-the-year-of-financial-inclusion/ Within the Gates Foundation, there is an individual by the name of Konstantin Peric that shares an interest on Ripple due to his position in the GF. Peric is the deputy director of the Financial Services for the Poor team that focuses on digital payments. He oversees the strategy and grants to deliver digital payment solutions for the poor with current focus countries including Nigeria, Indonesia, Pakistan, India, Bangladesh. https://www.gatesfoundation.org/What-We-Do/Global-Development/Financial-Services-for-the-Poor/Strategy-Leadership/Konstantin-Peric Just like Bill Gates, Peric has been previously covered on Ripple Insights for his work. https://ripple.com/insights/kosta-perics-mission-to-reach-the-unreachable/ Peric himself has mentioned Ripple in a Newsweek article pertaining to "How Financial Inclusion Could Add $3.7 Trillion to the Developing World". In the article Peric explains one of the challenges they face is clearing and settlement between different providers. Explaining that the current financial system has a great deal of friction. He goes on to say, and then specifically mentions Ripple http://www.newsweek.com/financial-inclusion-could-add-37-trillion-developing-world-528462 Kosta has also been seen tweeting Ripple related news, The SouthEast Asian Enviornment As mentioned previously, Peric has a focus on countries that include Indonesia and India. India in particular has been undergoing some drastic changes within the country. Over the course of a night, Indian citizens woke up to the news that Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi had declared that the 500 and 1,000-rupee notes were no longer legal tender. The implications were great as http://www.business-standard.com/article/economy-policy/86-of-currency-by-value-in-india-are-of-rs-500-rs-1-000-denominations-116110801416_1.html https://www.forbes.com/sites/patrickwwatson/2016/12/01/indias-demonetization-could-be-the-first-cash-domino-to-fall/#425f3dd463db As a result, it has pushed the usage of digital payments in the country. Meanwhile, two nation wide movements have been undergoing for years now. India attempting to build the largest biometric centralized database (Aadhar) in the world and it's financial sector exposing itself and trialing blockchain technology. http://www.nytimes.com/2011/09/02/world/asia/02india.html https://qz.com/1034358/ubi-and-automation-could-be-the-symbiotic-solution-for-displaced-workers/ Both movements are converging in a particular area in association to including the low income population of the country, the cellphone. A huge initiative behind publicly registering oneself into the biometric database (Aadhar) for the poor is the capability to purchase a cell phone and open a bank account once a digital identity has been created for the individual. On the blockchain end, different Indian financial institutions have been experimenting different systems utilizing blockchain technology. In an excerpt of an article written by Saurabh Agrawal, Co-Founder & CEO, Zebpay, he goes to say: https://www.siliconindiamagazine.com/viewpoint/ceo-insights/the-indian-tale-of-blockchain-digital-payments-nwid-7517.html With the launch of the Unified Payment Interface in India, it allowed banks to transfer money directly to one another based on a single identifier, such as the Aadhar number. https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/innovations/wp/2017/01/23/what-the-u-s-can-learn-from-indias-move-toward-a-cashless-society/?utm_term=.53085c17ae64 The End Goal? So let's try to tie things together. The Gates Foundation, thru Peric, is involved in connecting poor and rural areas of India to the finacial system. While the country on it's end has begun to close the gap by being proactive and implementing different policies in regards to the inclusion of the poor into the financial system. All nicely tied by cellular devices. So where is Ripple in all this? Other than bringing some of the major Indian banks into the network, there has been one interesting development. https://www.indianweb2.com/2017/07/15/makers-indias-upi-app-bringing-ripple-technology-india/ There also has been some recent developments in regards to the ILP as well, We also know thru the Japanese consortium of banks, there has been the development of a mobile application. https://ripple.com/insights/sumitomo-mitsui-banking-corporation-and-japan-post-bank-join-sbi-ripple-asias-bank-consortium/ While new Ripple job positions have been opening in India with Dilip Rao relocating into the region to be more engaged on something. I wonder what our friend Kosta Peric has been tweeting about.... (on a side note, Modi and Shinzo Abe are close. from what we hear about the Japanese government and it's financial system...... )

  6. Imagine, for a moment, it's autumn of 2018. You wake up, turn on your television, and see channel after channel showing shots of the New York Stock Exchange, with news anchors nervously discussing the morning's developments: the stock market is crashing. Panic is in the air. Everyone remembers the housing and banking crisis ten years before. Fear, Uncertainty, and Doubt are the order of the day. Will the contagion spread? The above scenario is obviously fictional--I'm certainly no Nostradamus. But it's not implausible. The global economy last tanked in 2008. Before that, 1999-2000. Before that, 1991-1992. In very rough terms, these have happened every 8-10 years in recent history. Could we make it another 3 or 4 years? Certainly. Past performance is no indicator, and all that. Nonetheless, at some point we will see another economic crash. This is not a matter of "if", but "when." That said, the last time the market crashed, Bitcoin wasn't even a thing. We have no real template for what the cryptocurrency market looks like in the middle of a crash. Will investors treat crypto as a safe-haven, as they do precious metals? Or will investors begin pulling their funds out of crypto as uncertainty rises and panic strikes the other markets? Will it be something in between, with a slump, but of lesser severity? Or something else entirely? I recently posed this question to a friend of mine who has been in Bitcoin and a few other coins since around 2013. While he agrees that there's no way to know for sure -- "even gold isn't acting like gold, lately" he noted -- he suggested looking at Venezuela and India for clues. "Crypto is gaining a foothold in those places," he observed, however "the main issue is the technological sophistication of the populace." A few anecdotes I've picked up over the past several months lend some credence to this theory; although, anecdotes should never substitute for hard data (which I'm lacking). South Korea might serve as a second -- albeit more controversial -- example. Another investor friend of mine pointed to the turmoil and uncertainty on the Korean Peninsula, from domestic political turmoil to the ever-looming threat across the DMZ to the north. In her view, these factors helped drive the strong demand for first Bitcoin and then XRP in recent weeks, as investors looked for safe-havens. Does this theory have legs? I don't have enough information to answer that question. I'd love to hear from some of our Korean members for further insights. A third friend talked about the role regulation has played in Japan in driving demand. It's been suggested that so-called "bitcoin laws" have helped boost investor confidence in crypto in Japan, and he speculated that we could see very different reactions in different countries, based on the regulatory climate. "In countries where there are strong protections in place," he said, "we might see investors treat it more as a safe-haven and a hedge against inflation. In countries without such laws, though, who knows? It's anyone's guess." Ultimately, I don't have an answer. This isn't going to be one of those sorts of posts. Instead, I'm posing the question, hoping we can all gain insights from the discussion. Thoughts?

  8. "I also believe central banks may include cyber-currencies (such as bitcoin) in their reserves. If you think that’s mad, consider that mankind has long sought scarcity – be it with shells, stones or metallic elements – to store wealth. Now the money-printing taboo has been broken by yet another generation, it makes sense to use complex computer algorithms to ensure that only a certain amount of a particular currency unit can ever exist." http://www.telegraph.co.uk/finance/comment/liamhalligan/10978178/The-dollars-70-year-dominance-is-coming-to-an-end.html
