  1. Some economic concepts can be surprisingly counter-intuitive. Have you heard about Jevon's paradox and the velocity of money? Perhaps, but I will point out how these apply to a  real-time payments system, and connect the dots for you. In addition, I've conducted a SWOT analysis of Ripple's fit for four different industries. Read for yourself and tell me if I'm missing something! Hope you enjoy the read - please leave any feedback below.

  2. I often see references to 'mass adoption' as being indispensable for something else to happen in crypto-land, but it seems to me the term itself lacks clarity and may mean very different things to different people. Conventionally, disruptive change diffuses from innovators, to early adopters, early majority, late majority, and eventually laggards. This would put 'mass adoption' as occurring somewhere during adoption by the late majority. Does this help? No? Perhaps it requires additional fleshing out. The phrase 'mass adoption' should be defined clearly at least in the two operational contexts -- retail and institutional -- which, in the main, concern speculators in crypto. These contexts are dissimilar, and failing to distinguish clearly between the two can trip us up when analyzing and discussing expectations, or when comparing 'coins.' Given the reigning confusion in crypto, we may end up comparing apples to shoes inadvertently. For example, I have thought more than once that the market cap rankings completely fail to distinguish between the purpose or target sector of the various coins / tokens. This is key to understanding the value (or lack of it) of the market cap idea and could make comparisons (and rankings) more sensible. An opportunity is being missed to clear the existing fog in crypto with the lack of an equivalent to stock asset classes or sectors (large cap, small cap, sector-focused, etc.) Traditional finance has mis-grouped all cryptos in a single 'new asset class', while it is clear by now that most of these have disparate objectives and might as well be in different sub-classes altogether -- cryptos being in fact software projects, regardless of people wanting to think of them as shiny 'coins' in their competitive quest for a quick fortune. With Ripple officially focused on the institutional clientele, it could well be that having a half dozen to a dozen adopters using Rapid/XRP this year would suffice to constitute massive progress, although not, technically speaking, mass adoption. Not when you consider the 11,000+ banks worldwide, or even the 100-200 Ripple partners. And yet, it could still be enough to sway price significantly, and propel it to new heights in sustainable fashion. The same could be said about a single endorsement by one of the Top 5 Central Banks. This then raises the question: is 'mass adoption' really a prerequisite to price appreciation? Or, might it be more suitable as a lagging indicator than a leading one? I tend of think of regulation as a leading indicator of where the sector may be headed and of the degree of adoption as a lagging one. But perhaps that's just me. Retail adoption by individuals using XRP to buy goods is an entirely different animal and would probably have to be in the tens or hundreds of millions to qualify on the basis of chosen populations. Something related to sports betting, perhaps, as the recently announced football crypto-initiative being launched in the UK, with worldwide scope and appeal, might just be that catalyst. I think this announcement was not appreciated properly by many here as to its potential impact (ex. fast payout of bets on a worldwide scale using Ripple.) Whichever of the two -- institutional or retail -- seems more impressive at first glance on the basis of numbers, operational definitions do matter and can help us in focusing on reasonable goals as speculators and in comparing apples to apples. Food for thought? Again, just one man's opinion.
  3. Long time lurker first time poster. I am all in with XRP, I strongly believe it will change the future of currency. So much that I am currently at 32,000 XRP and increasing my hold weekly. I have been reading all over the place, views from one end of the scale to the other end, with regards to XRP. I strongly believe that we are way to early to know the future outcome of XRP, all you can do is research, research, research and make your decisions based on that. But I am curious to know, since XRPs major rise in May, what is the general opinion of where we sit on the Innovation Bell? Also where we sit in general in the crypto market as a whole.
  4. 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!
  5. It's like an itch in the back of their minds, a growing anxiety that no amount of alcohol can eliminate. The new consensus among whale crypto traders is that XRP is taking over. So how do they react? They're raking in quick profits from the ICOs *if they're lucky*, and perhaps putting their money into ETH and BTC to take advantage of the temporary run-ups. But they know better. The logical part of their mind is screaming at them to wake up and smell the coffee, and investigate just how much adoption Ripple is making with the banks. Sometimes they pop into our forum and ask that very question, hoping that somebody, anybody, can provide them inside information about when to make their big switch from their risky portfolio back to the safe bet... to the one that they know will inevitably take over crypto. Adoption of XRP It's happening now - here are the raw numbers: 15 of the top 50 banks worldwide are working with Ripple 9 different countries with banks are implementing Ripple... in production 87% of all FX pairs are now potentially covered by XRP (source: https://www.ripple.com/) In addition to the above current statistics, Ryan Zagone was just recently quoted as saying that 16 more countries will be using the RCL. (source: _https://youtu.be/PzScsRNsoT0 at 39:15) We know unequivocally that Ripple Desires a High XRP Price. They try to understate it, but a high XRP price benefits the company in a myriad of ways, including low cost of FX transfers, and the increased value of their treasury's main digital asset. (sources: _https://www.xrpchat.com/topic/5565-joelkatz-a-question-if-you-have-time/#comment-52750 and _https://www.xrpchat.com/topic/5280-valuation-models-xrp-the-digital-currency-vs-ripple-the-company/?do=findComment&comment=50484) Lessons of History Old, legacy technology such as Bitcoin doesn't have much of a bright future if history is any guide. And we know from many social scientists that history should be our guide; it's lessons repeat if they are not recognized, and bitcoin is on its way to becoming an academic case study in that concept. For now, look to Kodak, AOL, or the Yahoo search engine. These companies once had enormous market share and valuation, but mainly due to superior technological rivals and options, they no longer exist - at least in their previous form. They might have redefined themselves and found a niche market, but their heydays are long gone. Now it is digital cameras mounted directly on smart phones, direct ISP providers, or Google. So How Fast Will XRP Take Over? What makes Ripple's case so unique is that the difference in options is so stark. Never has history offered an opportunity so well-defined for potential investors. We are still early in the adoption life cycle. Because of our early position in the innovation life cycle, the chance to own significant chunks of Ripple's digital asset at very low prices are lying here for us to take... even before the advent of the most popular XRP wallets hit the "streets" soon.

(source: https://www.xrpchat.com/topic/5067-david-schwartz-joelkatz-working-with-third-party-on-high-quality-wallet-and-other-xrp-related-projects/ ) Coinket Distributed Trading Wallet (source: http://www.livebitcoinnews.com/new-peer-peer-xrp-marketplace-will-launch-two-weeks/ ) We're still "early" in the market, but beware how fast the markets can shift.. you've seen XRP price rise more than 40% in one day ... less than one week ago. When the industry turns it's attention to XRP, there will be no turning back, and the opportunities to buy XRP at current prices will be part of... history!

  6. https://www.salesforce.com/uk/blog/2017/05/digital-strategy-battleground-retail-vs-institutional-banking.html When you read these types of articles, you might wonder, how does this impact XRP and Ripple, RCL and the usage of ILP? The lesson is this: The pressure on traditional banking institutions is increasing and increasing, and shows no sign of letting up. Banks will either embrace innovation, or they will go the way of the Do-do bird. It's that simple. And Ripple has the technology for helping them integrate with instant international transfers at low cost, as well as modern strategies to handle their nostro accounts. The "Big Four" and others are now forming Ripple integration teams to expand the number of integrations of Ripple tech that can take place as well: https://ripple.com/network/system-integrators/
  7. http://capitalmarketsblog.accenture.com/collaboration-fintechs-key-getting-innovation-right Does the title of the article sound similar to Ripple? Yes it does! This last point basically echoed Ripple's approach to the letter!
