Hello everyone, I apologize in advance if the below will upset anybody, but with the risk of being "nailed" for it I have to ask a few questions .... maybe someone will help shed some light on the near term future of Ripple Here we go: - how will Ripple be treated by IRS in regards to taxes due considering the price of XRP? How can they "explain" to the IRS they do not own at least 60 blns XRP worth almost 120 bln USD ... which would be a huge capital gain / profit thus a huge tax liability (anything between 10 to 20 bln USD) ? - same to the state of California and / or Delaware, for their state taxes. - how will Ripple explain to the banking world / investors December`s price evolution and how can they reassure them XRP is a "stable" asset, not for speculation, "immune" to price fluctuations? - let`s suppose the fiscal year ended in October, thus the tax liabilities would be calculated at $0.20 so not big of a problem ... yet ... but how about the future price? If XRP stays at 1-2 USD, Ripple will still have to explain how they don`t own the 50 bln XRP in escrow at the end of 2018 so they will have to come up either with a great explanation that would "fly" with the IRS or with a solution to get at least 10-20 bln USD cash to pay their taxes. Any ideas how that might happen? I think it would rewrite the books on economics about profitability Thank you in advance for any decent comment / answer
