  1. Blog URL: https://xrpcommunity.blog/teamwork-will-raise-xrp-up/ Teamwork is crucial for helping us raise XRP's profile to new heights! I describe why & cover all the latest news in today's blog: 𝐆𝐞𝐧𝐞𝐫𝐚𝐥 𝐂𝐫𝐲𝐩𝐭𝐨 𝐍𝐞𝐰𝐬: China's National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC) lists crypto mining as an activity it recommends be phased out; and Warren Davidson reintroduces the Token Taxonomy Act. 𝐑𝐢𝐩𝐩𝐥𝐞 𝐍𝐞𝐰𝐬: A huge donation is made to San Francisco State University; xRapid wins an award; Bitstamp is awarded a New York State BitLicense while Bittrex is declined; and the community continues to track xRapid volumes. 𝐂𝐨𝐢𝐥 𝐍𝐞𝐰𝐬: A new web monetization-enabled video conferencing service is highlighted by Coil. 𝐗𝐑𝐏 𝐍𝐞𝐰𝐬: Wietse Wind adds a new feature to the XRP Tip Bot; XRPL Labs asks for volunteer beta testers; and David Oliver's proposal to Skype garners just over 2,000 votes thus far. I hope you enjoy the read: Please feel free to share my blog with a friend or share it on any other platform - and thanks for doing so!

  2. Could you sensor transactions, double spends, create soft/hard-forks etc?
  3. Great news for anyone mining Siacoin in the future via Obelisk miners: https://bitcoinexchangeguide.com/obelisk-releases-code-to-fork-siacoin-to-remove-bitmains-asic-miner-ability/
  4. http://markets.businessinsider.com/currencies/news/plattsburgh-new-york-cryptocurrency-mining-ban-2018-3-1018865406 I didn't post this to 'Press' because ripple is not mentioned, but for me, this is yet another nail in the coffin of bitcoin. The sooner the lid closes and it's buried, the sooner we can move onwards with better technology. Mods : please delete this, or move it if contravenes posting rules.
  5. Qarnot, a French startup, unveiled its latest product, QC1 that is a heater that mines cryptocurrency. QC1 is a heater for homes containing a passive computer inside that is focused on mining digital currencies. https://viraldocks.com/qarnot-unveil-cryptocurrency-heater/
  6. Cryptojacking is becoming the biggest cyber threat lately, affecting thousands of websites including the government ones too. https://viraldocks.com/cryptojacking-attack-hits-4000-websites/
  7. Interesting news overnight with China looking to stop crypto mining. I wonder what the Chinese Govt's strategy is? Thoughts? http://fortune.com/2018/01/08/cryptocurrency-markets-tank-china/ https://qz.com/1174091/china-wants-an-orderly-exit-from-bitcoin-mining/
  8. One of the biggest original "sales" points regarding most cryptos in general and BTC in particular seemed to be its decentralisation. The notion that a valuable currency was not controlled by any government or central bank and therefore could not be manipulated in a world where people were seeking a way to circumvent these systems would of course be highly attractive. In early days this notion stood true and to a certain extent there still is some truth in that. However with the volume of mining taking place in China and the largest pools controlling such a large portion of the mining process, is there not an argument to say the currency is no longer decentralised at all and now more along the lines of (say...) a board of directors in a public company who also hold a large portion of its shares? Its a strange analogy I know but you only have to look at the size of the mining pools and operations in China to realise that there must be a significant amount of control coming out of the likes of AntPool/Bixin/ et al. Now obviously the developers also have some control in decisions but the point I make is, the notion of "free market, decentralised control spread across a global network" is quite frankly no longer true. Pressure may be applied by other smaller pools to sway decisions, but ultimately the party with the largest stake can and will make decisions that affect the rest of the network and thereby the value of the currency. Now here is the kicker, without wanting to sound derogatory, crypto "fanboys" in the market have made accusations towards Ripple and XRP that it is not decentralised as its supply can be controlled by Ripple (regardless of the upcoming escrow deposit, there is truth in this statement to some degree which cannot be ignored). The point though, is that with the likes of Bitcoin designed to circumvent the financial system and Ripple taking the opposite approach to work in harmony with it, surely this has long term implications that speak to the integrity of both currencies? What I mean is, ultimately, if the large BTC mining pools became too large, lets say there comes a day where the top three pools controlled around 75% of the mining process, is there not a danger of that being recognised as "hang on a minute...why are only these groups able to make strong gains from this process?" I could be miles out here and would love to be corrected...but in theory and the worst case scenario, could this present a collapse of BTC??!!
  9. Hi all Can someone explain if doubling your money via this mechanism is currently reasonable (assuming current BTC prices and costs). Can you explain mining in short? And, lastly, what do you think of this, I mean, would you put your money there? https://www.waitcoin.com
  10. https://www.wsj.com/articles/china-widens-bitcoin-crackdown-beyond-commercial-trading-1505733976 Looks like contrary to popular belief that the China ban may be permanent. The possibility that China could not only outlaw mining (China is 65-80%), but could potentially take over mining farms to attack the blockchain seems to be real. Centralized Bitcoin. Who knew.
  11. This is positive for Ripple https://cointelegraph.com/news/russia-may-ban-bitcoin-mining-in-residential-homes-over-electricity-costs-heating
  12. Bitcion Mining hurts the environment! I discuss this in my latest blog entry and talk about how to support the environment... buy investing in XRP. I genuinely hope you enjoy the read! I think Ripple should really hammer this environmental point even more than they already do. Let me know what you think, positive or negative, below, and as always, feel free to share my blog on other media!
