  1. At the end of the year Ripple Labs have stated that they will lock up the majority of the XRP supply in escrow only releasing 1 billion to meet demand per month. By doing this Ripple will make XRP more valuable to short term individual investors. Currently 80% of total cryptocurrency are valued against BTC, XRP is the only digital asset that is bridging the gap between crypto and fiat. While more institutional investors and liquidity providors enter the market they shall see the real use case for XRP as an asset and use it accordingly. As it stands today you can accept payment in any digital asset you like if you are a merchant but unfortunately salaries, rent, tax all need to be converted/payed in fiat. Governments aren't going away, Banks aren't going away, it is reductive to speculate on a digital asset that is only a means in of itself like bitcoin or many of the majority of 'Alt coins'. For this reason Ripple Labs have clearly developed the best solution in this crypto space to meet the needs of real world financial institutions. My prediction is that once the escrow deposit happens more institutional investment will purchase XRP and the digital asset with then not be following the BTC mkt trend, it will break away and be the most stable, most valuable and long term digital asset in the world. We have seen a current high of $0.42 low $0.12 in the current trend. I believe XRP will surpass $0.95 soon and $5 by the end or beginging of Q1 2018. If you haven't already watch Dilip Rao:
  2. I'm a believer in both Ripple and XRP, and will probably hodl till the end.. Therefor my question is genuine and not fudding around. What is the background of the fact that during te last months in many occasions XRP went down along a bearish BTC trend, yet not up with a bullish BTC trend. Is it that pump scheme group that is leaving XRP aside? This would be fine in a way, as in that the rest of the alts and btc rising are bubbles and I dont desire putting my long run money on bubbles. Also, in the end XRP as bridge asset is probably better off with stability. Yet, like most of us I do feel a little grumpy not having temporary sold antyime since May. Of course, that's looking back so I dont blame myself as I put my money on the asset that I consider having the best usecase and that should be leading your decisions, not pump trends. But a part from the pump trends and Ripple not focussing too much on XRPs price like @miguel mentioned, still I wonder how to explain the down trend with so much positive news. Is it a detaining trust of private investors? Such should matter a bit to @miguel I guess. Or is Ripple fine with the price going down making it more attractive for banks to step in? Or is Ripple overselling before de lockup kicks in? Or was it overpriced anyway (still, that would account for all alts, so that answer would keep the questionsmark open). Anyway, hodling, but searching for answers..
  3. Just noticed that XRP went through the roof, so the question is should I buy XRP even at this price? What is everyone's thought on this, will you reckon it will continue to rise, if yes then why and up to what price do you reckon XRP will hit in the future?
  4. I was wondering; probably banks and fi's will not buy XRP from exchanges, but buy them directly from Ripple for a fixed low price, so it won't affect trade price, and if it does it will only pull it down...so why is everybody so excited about banks buying in? My thought is that it will not even affect the circulation supply as the coins won't be 'in circulation' but only a vehicle for banks...
  5. Hey guys, second post for me and I just felt like I wanted to contribute instead of lurking around and do nothing. I'm charts guy, I have been doing charts for quite some time now and just wanted to share my insight. For those who think 'charts are bull****' please leave this post NOW. So the chart above is the XRP / USDT price at Poloniex, we can observe that the XRP managed to hop onboard in the 'rising trend' that has been triggered after Bitcoin SegWit lock-in (approximate data, I don't have the exact dates). All seems well right? However, XRP is currently trapped in the 17.5-18 cents zone, and no volume is backing XRP up to rise. Here's another bad news. XRP / BTC really needs to step up, it is still trapped in a long down trend which started right after May's big price surge. This could possibly mean that the price of XRP is highly dependent on rise of BTC, not the XRP itself. ETH, on the other hand, recently broke the ETH/BTC downtrend and therefore its price rose significantly when compared to XRP ETC or LTC. To conclude 1) XRP / fiat is highly dependent on BTC's price 2) In order for XRP to rocket, XRP / BTC needs to 'step up a notch' and break the long downtrend that started in May. Here's my speculation on XRP's price. Comments?
  6. Hi all, First of all say hi to everybody, I'm new in here! It is known and officially announced by Ripple their plans to lock up the supply of XRP in the market during the next 55 months: https://ripple.com/insights/ripple-to-place-55-billion-xrp-in-escrow-to-ensure-certainty-into-total-xrp-supply/ My questions are regarding the 1 Billion XRP which they are going to automatically release...per month! Is this not a huge amount of XRP which are going to dilude its price? You can see in the link above the chart graphic with the future amount of XRP in the market... It seems to me they're going to over flood the market with XRP over the next 5 years? I think Ripple has a great project and brilliant long long term plans.. but have series doubts about the increment in price of XRP.... Please share your thoughts!
  7. Hi, I'm a fan of Ripple for many years :-) Still not sure about the transaction price of XRP. (XRP wasn't that high) One transaction = 0.00001 XRP. But what if XRP increase to €10,- or €100,-. Will it still be 0.00001 XRP or lower like 0.0000001 XRP?
  8. Could Ripple be the brain child of our shadow government with plans of XRP being the new one world currency???
  9. https://i.redd.it/o5f51ulv04az.jpg?utm_content=buffera6235&utm_medium=social&utm_source=twitter.com&utm_campaign=buffer This Reddittor provides his take on price predictions for XRP that range from $2 to $120. Thought-provoking to say the least!
  10. XRP all the way!!! I just converted all my BTC in XRP Bought BTC for 883euros/BTC a long time ago And i just converted all of them but why? that is very simple after alot of research in differences of most of the common coins i concluded that ripple is the best company in many ways that you can't even compare with the others in almost every aspect for now and the future For a long term investment this is the best way to fellow
  11. Do you do this? This YouTube video pretty much sums up thoughts I've been having recently. Are you a crypto junkie? (I just thought of that term.)
  12. After reading this article, my understanding is that these guys are competitors, targeting small banks. http://tech.economictimes.indiatimes.com/news/startups/singapore-startup-instarem-with-indian-cofounder-raises-13-million/59439850
  13. My wife and I just watched an interview with a guy by the name of Clif High *sounds like a pseudonym*. In this video, he calls XRP a "ponzi scheme" and states that "any coin that is not mineable raises red flags for me. XRP is pre-mined..." at which point I stopped really listening to what he said. This last statement alone shows that he has NO idea what XRP is about, yet, this video will circulate online as "truth" *and many people will take it as such* while spreading misinformation. https://steemit.com/cryptocurrency/@etcmike/clif-high-webbot-cryptocurrencies-versus-bankers Feel free to correct him.
  14. Hi...about xrp price, what is the ideal rate after 5 yrs if i hold it currently at $0.26 with $1k investment?
  15. With the removal of the Japanese Consumption Tax (8%) as of July 1st and SBI's plan to open another exchange SBI MAX . Any thoughts about how this will impact XRP movement? i.e. volume, price, exposure, etc. I'd liked to 'hear' your thoughts.
  16. If Ripple would replace SWIFT and be the new standard for payments and the native currency XRP also is used, what XRP price could we then expect? Could someone help me do a simple calculation if the same amounts of money that is moved internationally right now were to be replaced with Ripple? Lets say also paypal and all its competitors were to use Ripple (they had to or they would lose all customers to "Ripplepay" that is a new service with low fees for international transfer. That is: Ripple becomes number one in international payments
  17. ############################################## DISCLAIMERS: THIS IS NOT INVESTING ADVICE I AM NOT A GOOD TECHNICAL ANALYST! DO NOT BUY CRYPTO WITH LEVERAGE ALWAYS DO YOUR OWN RESEARCH ############################################## Before I started researching yesterday, I had a nagging question: "Is the insane level of 1 billion dollars per day flowing into crypto continuing, or has it declined?" The answer is: Not only is it continuing, it's tripled. Yeah, 3 billion is flowing into crypto, on average, every day this week. Here are those "average flow per day" statistics I massaged based on data from (source: https://coinmarketcap.com/historical/) So is that sustainable? The answer is yes, and it's increasing. Except for one week, the average daily flow into crypto has increased week-over-week. During this week, the average daily flow into crypto-currencies totaled roughly 3 billion. If we see this trend continue, that means that we can expect to see an increasing amount flow into the crypto-currency market next week as well. So not only can we expect to continue to see this daily amount continue, it looks like it's increasing. What does this mean for XRP Price? If we account for an increase in the daily average of roughly 15 percent, this will result in a price of over one dollar for XRP *: *Corrected to use week ending on 5/21/2017 as a base after realizing that using 6/2 would not result in a whole new week for the 6/4 figures Keep in mind that the average daily crypto investment has been increasing by much more than 15 percent week over week in May. I predicted that June would "get crazy," only I don't think I really knew how crazy it might get! I Don't Trust Your Positivity... Okay then. The most conservative estimate *in my view* is that the daily average continues unchanged, or even decreases - even though we know it's increasing. A zero percent increase in the average daily investment in XRP will result in a price of 81 cents at the end of June according to my spreadsheet. When I showed my calculations to a friend this morning, he challenged me to put in a negative growth rate for the average daily investment in XRP. That negative numbers still resulted in an XRP price of over 51 cents. Do your own research on https://coinmarketcap.com/historical/, and let me know if you arrive at similar conclusions!
  18. Could someone tell me if I'm on the right track here. As I understand the model for XRP being used as a conduit for bank transfers - (if that is the correct terminology), everyone involved would benefit from a higher XRP price. In fact it seems that for this to truly work the higher the price of XRP the better. SWIFT processes in the neighborhood of 20-30 million transfers daily so assuming $1,000 per transfer at the present price around .26 - if XRP took over this space all 100,000,000,000 xrp would be needed just to cover one days transfers, Right? So if that is the case, a much higher price for XRP would be a necessity for the business model to be a success. Is there a target price where Ripple feels the price of XRP would be best for the system - or is the higher the better???.
  19. Why is everyone so upset? in April XRP was .03 now it's .29 - and everyone is complaining. Are you upset because you only made 10x on your cash and didn't jump on Eth or Strat to bump that up another 5x- or are you upset - that the thing you bought that had just gone parabolic didn't continue to rise? Yo chill out, it looks like it's gathering strength, hopefully will make another jump soon.
  20. Does any one have an explanation for why there's a difference in price quotes for XRP. The current price quote on ripple.com always seems to be lower than the price quotes on sites like coin gecko etc. thanks, wolf
  21. Just funny to see at what price people got their XRP's I bought mine for 0.02793 $
  22. Zero. Not. One. Drop. With the price pin-balling above and around 10 cents, which understandably is an interesting number, I felt it necessary to share my opnion that has been built on the last week or so of analysis from several different viewpoints. I will not even cover technical analysis which has been showing (I"ve been told) incredibly bullish signals. Market Capitalization Here's the market capitalization of some companies for those that are interested: Amazon: 444.84B Wells Fargo: 277.07B Paypal: 59.09B Ebay: 36.53B Western Union: 9.20B These are individual companies. It's based on stock price multipled by outstanding stock. It's a similar calculation to coin capitalization, which is calculated by multiplying the number of coins on the market by the coin price. The key take-away here to consider is that the entire market for ALL COINS is less than the market capitalization of Paypal. Invariably, if you think deeply about this, shouldn't an entire industry's market capitalization be more than one company in the same space? Yes. Yes it should. And yet we're not there yet. Accelerating User Adoption https://cryptohustle.com/bitcoin-user-adoption-on-the-rise The article talks about each major country or geographic area in turn, identifying the political and economic forces which are prompting users to turn to crypto-currency. This trend is well-known, but there is difficulty in summarizing the numbers for a "big picture" impact. But it is important to consider, nonetheless. Not all Coins are Equal I know - common sense, right? But from looking at the current share of the market, we know that there is room for XRP to take on substantial BTC market share, and perhaps even some of the ETH market share. Here's where it stands today. Ripple (the company) is one of the most fearless companies I have every done research on. Case in point: They don't wait for others to make the comparison between XRP and other digital assets. They do it themselves: https://ripple.com/xrp-portal/xrp-resources/xrp-compares-btc-eth/ When you glance down at your phone when you're out having a beer tonight, just remember that you made the right choice not to sell, just like me (hopefully). We'll get there - and it looks like we're going to get there quicker than we thought!
  23. Obviously those that stuck with this have had a wild ride so far. Crypto is not for the faint of heart. We just went through a big selloff after a huge run up. Right now we are the only big player that hasn't participated in the climb that crypto's have enjoyed the last few weeks --- but the chart if flattening out, the selling is drying up and our time is coming!!!! Also, I would think that a lot of the profits made in Eth/Ethc/Waves etc. will come into XRP as those take a breather and XRP starts to move pushing us even higher. The FOMO is going to be strong!! People will want to buy more at $1 than at .50 - and when it goes higher than that, people will be mortgaging their houses to gamble with the$$$ in XRP. When it happens and this starts to move - Remember what Warren Buffett says "Be Fearful When Others Are Greedy and Greedy When Others Are Fearful". Nothing goes straight up forever. Take your profits, especially if you are gambling with money you can't afford to lose. Will your investment in XRP get you a Lambo, a Mansion and a ton of beautiful women - Maybe. But I guarantee there will be crashes along the way and you can go broke when your great trade turns into a loser. That said - in my opinion - and this is not advice - and think for yourself - I think this is a good entry point. I'm greedy now - I'll start being scared when it's over a $1 and I'll get out when Jim Kramer mentions the run up on his show - which is the kiss of death as far as I'm concerned.
  24. I am Ripple fan since 2013, but yet I don't see some serious changes, that would increase XRP interest in public. Don't you think that ripple deserves a main wallet which is not associated with any company but just Ripple itself? I lost faith in XRP back in 2015, because they discontinued their own wallet, apps and Ripple Trade. I understand that discontinuing Ripple Trade was a smart move for decentralisation, but still a own independent open source wallet would make us and everyone trust in Ripple, XRP and the idea itself. As an old Ripple fan I spent most of my stock, exactly 150000 XRP, for spreading the idea and activating new accounts. But am very disappointed that I still cannot trust any kind of wallet for holding my XRP safe. The prices of all kind of cryptos are rising, while XRP is sleeping at the moment and this is the exact reason why: We need a wallet to trust! Let me give you a simple example: If I want to invest in Gold, my first thought is where is the safest place to store it, so I will store it at the bank where I bought it and is insured (somehow, but better than nothing). Same thing is with XRP, if I invest in XRP I want to store my XRP to a wallet where even the company (Ripple itself) stores them, not Gatehub, not Bitstamp and I don't want to wait for any kind of verification so I can store my Ripple. Gatehub is just a marketplace at the moment, and their support is way too slow of letting people believe in XRP. Conclusion: BTC, ETH and all cryptos have their wallet, XRP deserves one too - if we all want to see the real XRP power. While watching people on forums waiting for their accounts to be activated, Ripple as a company needs to act fast and get back their wallet in order to see some real XRP power. Sorry Gatehub, we need you as a trade platform, where we can trade (and we need more of them), but mostly we need Ripple main wallet which is trusted and provided by the company and community itself. By searching online I see connection between Ripple, Bitstamp and Gatehub, it's nothing wrong, but please stop, we need to decentralise before it's too late. With love, Ripple Fan
  25. If you are looking for technical analysis videos and charts of Ripple follow me over at Twitter, and check the videos out at YouTube. That being said; Ripple has been in a channel trade between 0.26-0.30 for the past 10 days; it has been building strong support in this range while waiting for the MACD to flip bullish on the day chart; still setting up for rally; it is building strong legs. Here is today's analysis: Twitter: https://twitter.com/ChartsCrypto Youtube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC4dVJFvNNL_YxYWB71Cp7Ow
