  1. A lot talk about XRP price on here. In order for XRP to work, $100 per XRP is the minimum need. No one at Ripple talks about price in the public, but behind close doors they know whats needed. All other prices $400, $500 $1000. These are all prices if Ripple really dominate this space. Right now they are doing that. Ripple/XRP is a smart investment. There is no coin/token doing anything like Ripple. The team, the money, the vision, the focus, the goal. Ripple has it all. When investing in a token/coin its the team that drives it. Ripple do not try to please spectators. They just have they goal and don't stop. Ripple go 24/7 If you doubt XRP/Ripple, I don't mean to be rude, but your ignorant.
  2. I'm having a panic attack. I initiated a transfer of funds yesterday from my checking account to Coinbase so that I can get my fiat into the system and buy more XRP. It will take 7 days for my money to get to Coinbase and I'm VERY worried that the price of XRP will go up prior to me having a chance to buy it at the current sale price. Someone please tell me it will stay at the current price point or go lower during the next week. I don't want the price to go up and I'm losing sleep!
  3. https://www.profitconfidential.com/cryptocurrency/ripple/xrp-price-prediction-swift-tries-combat-growing-xrp-threat/ I enjoyed reading this article and would like to know what 'report' its referring to. What have I missed? They are maintaining the $10 price prediction too. "there was a report that SWIFT, Ripple’s main rival, is talking up its efforts in distributed ledger technology (DLT)." It's nice to see predictions holding firm despite the long slump.
  4. I was reading an article about JPM estimating that between 2009-2017 Bitcoin had a cumulative amount of $6 billion invested resulting in a market cap of $330 billion. In that time Ethereum had a cumulative amount of $2 billion invested resulting in a market cap of $45 billion. This information supports the idea that market cap is almost useless when determining a "value" for a particular crypto. Assuming JPM correctly estimated these values, a big assumption, I estimated that xrp currently has a cumulative value of $1.6 billion. If the cumulative value of xrp increased to $6 billion the resulting market cap would be $330 billion and xrp would have a price of around $8.46. So extrapolating from there if $70-$80 billion cumulative value were to flow into xrp the price could theoretically reach $100 with a market cap of $3.9 trillion. Which is very possible if Ripple achieves the goals they have set for xrp. Just something to think about when someone says "a price of $XXX is impossible for xrp to reach".

  6. https://www.everythingfx.com/You_Cant_Control_The_Market_So_Dont_Let_It_Control_You-145-EFX-Watchlist-Detail Nice little read, check it out guys.
  7. I apologize beforehand for the newbness of my question. Since today the price is dropping for whatever reason (tnx btc), is there a way for us newbs to predict when the downward trend will stop in order to buy some XRP at a low price? Just an indicator that the dropping MIGHT stop..anything? Way to new to this..I had to read Galgitron today in order to understand whales..so you can image where I'm coming from Thank you in advance!
  8. There's been numerous threads about utility based analysis of how high XRP price could rise. Here is one example: https://www.xrpchat.com/topic/18706-xrp-market-potential-value/ I've created this thread to throw out what I consider to be a good "starting point" for utility-based analysis. Personally, I struggle with the finer-grained differences between the potential markets: B2B (Business to business) P2P (Peer to peer or person to person) P2B (person to business) Once we zero in on one of these three categories, we can then further categorize the markets and get some historical numbers to plug in. For example, within the category of "P2P" are remittances across borders such as what MoneyGram handles along with Mercury FX, Flash FX, IDT, and Cuallix. Also American Express and Western Union now! I wanted to create this specific topic as a stand-alone thread before I then take the number and extrapolate to use it in a utility-based analysis of XRP price. In the past, I've used old SWIFT numbers. I've seen other authors manage to get their hands on other numbers as well, but I'm not sure if some of those overlap or should be considered separate from each other. For example, is the CHIPs system accounted for in the SWIFT number? I don't think so, but I'm not sure. We'd need somebody 'from the industry' to comment on some of the numbers that would comprise our starting point for utility-based estimation of XRP price. Let me know if you feel strongly one way or the other, or are from the industry and have some valuable sources of statistics to contribute. Thank you!
  9. With good news dropping like raindrops, it's sometimes hard to understand why XRP price is not growing and is in a stupor. The market sometimes seems to react like a two year old. One would think that all the good news would point to a greater possibility of increased use of XRP, which points to a higher demand in the future. But no. Most people are still in a regressive state still treating XRP as if is was a fork of bitcoin with a higher total supply. Too many people don't do their homework to truly understand what ripple is trying to do with XRP, and the important relationship between xcurrent and XRP. Instead they take their limited knowledge and half truths about XRP, and treat it the way many people treated bitcoin: "it will never pass $1. It will never pass $10". The truth is, in order to get the hype in this young market you need to be a slightly more advanced type of bitcoin. You can't be too ahead off the curve. You can't be a car instead of a horse and buggy. You need to be a better type of horse and buggy. A lot of people can't see out of the bitcoin box at this early stage. Ps. Please don't tell me about hodling. Just venting here.
  10. Invest ripple or wait ?

    Hi Do I invest in ripple or wait? Will prices fall according to you? Wait few hours/days for under 1$ ? or Invest 1$ now ?
  11. Let's do some maths... Overall, there are approximately $9.8 trillion in cross-border cash transfers per day. At the end of 2015, the balance of resources of $ parked in the "nostro/vostro acounts" for these transactions reached $27 trillion. Ripple's goal is to revolutionize this old transaction system and make it more user-friendly in positioning itself as a leading player in the heart of the global financial institutions. So the ceiling value for an xrp could be calculated as follows : $27 trillions divided by $39 billion (current number of XRP in circulation), which would give $686 for 1XRP. However, with the transmission speed of the XRP, this $27 trillion may no longer be needed. Let's get us then on the $9.8 trillion... This means that XRP will need to have a market capitalization of $9.8 trillions just to satisfy the daily average of transactions of all cross-border payment systems in the world. This would give us 1 xrp at $247 on the basis of a 100% market share. Now let's imagine Ripple has only 10% of this market share, that will give $980 billion in daily exchanges. Based on the current 39 billion XRP in circulation, we obtain an XRP at $25. Of course, we don't take into account here the market related to the average Joe's XRP investments as well as the institutions such as Visa, Mastercard, Paypal, Western Union, Ebay, Amazon, Apple,... or the Stock Market ($73 trillions), the Derivative Market ($544 trillions), the Gold Market ($7.8 trillion), the Real Estate Market ($217 trillions), the Global Money Supply ($127 trillions),... a combination that would then increase the value of 1 xrp well over $1.000. The truth is that there are an infinite number of potential uses that would increase the value of XRP far beyond what it could be if it were used only by financial institutions... To check the money around the globe go here... http://money.visualcapitalist.com/worlds-money-markets-one-visualization-2017/ you will be SHOCKED !!! One advice : Buy on this dip and HOLD for 5 years ;-)
  12. Hi all. Just wondering others opinions on my issue with XRP price. Lets say I value XRP at a certain amount because I believe it to be strong. At this moment in history, XRP does not stand on its own, just like most crypto. If bitcoin crashes, so does everything else. So to have confidence in XRP, I have have to have confidence in bitcoin and I have absolutely no confidence in it over being pegged to the US dollar. Any feedback would be great. On another issue. I was wondering if anyone had knowledge on the banks using XRP. Is there a security issue/risk for them going from xcurrent to xrapid at all.
  13. After this recent drop I think we are going to be seeing a decent surge in XRP value in the next week. Out of my hat im pulling the 1.55 dollar figure
  14. Hi All experts i have very little amount to invest. With that amount I can only buy 500 XRP or I can buy 100,000 DOgecoins. I am not sure what is best for me. as I cannot invest more and want to be millionaire in a year time or so. ........ or I can just buy a home in UK I read many stories how bitcoin changed peoples life. But that is out of my range now
  15. A quick question. for many peoples XRP price is high for buying in 4 figures. Is it worth buying and investing in Dogecoin and later on when price goes up can exchange with XRP. In other words is it worth buying some Dogecoins???
  16. Forgive me if the answer appears clear to others. But how precisely is the price of XRP determined? From what I can determine, the standard model of Market Cap = Price x circulating supply doesn’t seem to fit. Since the circulating supply on the exchanges is perpetually ~38 billion (until they release some of the 55billion at least). The price formula would appear to be Price = Market cap/circulating supply But in the case of Ripple, the “circulating supply” is unknown. The total amount available (~38B) is then substituted. But this number is constant. Can someone please clarify how any of the exchanges (or anyone for that matter) can properly evaluate The price of Ripple? Thanks! And forgive me if the answer appears obvious to others.

  18. Discussions about the market capitalization of Ripple are all the rage. In my latest blog, I discuss this controversial topic and point out some historical facts and future trends for readers to consider when putting this topic into perspective. I have a feeling many readers will be surprised to find that Ripple will not be the first company to be measured in the trillions. Hope you enjoy the read! Please leave any feedback below.

  19. HI guys, in my opinion pending announcements of xrp will separate it from rest of the herd, right now BTC and Eth only has bad news coming from all sides, if you look at things closely there is no such bad news xrp related, its only going down because the others are dragging it with them, but xrp has lots of announcements in pipeline which will only impact xrp price, and may very well take it to 1st spot if other currencies keep going down. XRP's listing on Coinbase may take it to new highs but it would not impact other big coins as much as they are already listed on Coinbase. When will that happen..? nobody knows, but as you are aware that its possible anytime. SBI exchange launch and xrp listing is also a big one, as i read somewhere that SBI has 35 million accounts, which can be huge. Coinsquare is also going to list xrp as per interview of their CEO and it being Canada's one of the most reputed exchanges, should have some impact on price as well. Other two companies like Moneygram are also soon to be declared otherwise Brad would not have even mentioned it. Plus there could be many more surprises who we are not even aware of yet. I really hope the whole crypto space improves but i think that will be unrealistic to expect that as all of us know that there are hundreds of Cr****p coins that dont even deserve to be listed, yet they are trading at more than few dollars, they need to come down and taken care of by the rule of law and that will make the investors realize, which are the coins that deserve their money to be put into. Lets hope for the best and fingers crossed XRP should reach new highs. Disclaimer- Above is only opinion and is not financial advice, please do your own research before you invest your funds as crypto currency is a highly speculative area, so please do not put what you can not afford to lose 100%.
  20. Interesting article curious what the thoughts from this board are? https://ripplenews.tech/2018/01/19/mysterious-whale-is-manipulating-the-market/amp/ Bearableguy has an interesting take..... https://www.reddit.com/user/bearableguy123
  21. Ripple News Update Cryptocurrencies passed through all stages of Dante’s Inferno this week, but that doesn’t mean investors are confined to hell in perpetuity. There is a way out, and its name is Big Business. Or to put it in crypto terms, “enterprise use-cases of blockchain technology may expedite token adoption” by “leveraging the power of existing institutions.” (My god, this industry needs better language.) What am I talking about? Let me explain… When the market crashes, investors believe that cryptocurrencies are failing. This is true in some cases and horribly untrue in others.

  22. Over the past 24 hours I've seen at least 3 or 4 members of our community posting questions and concerns about XRP and the price that it might be capable of achieving one day. I know there has been endless discussion on this topic, especially in regards to market cap, but I wanted to share my take on the possibilities... especially with so many people freaking out about the current price of XRP! This is my first ever blog. I've pasted the content below, but you can see it on my Wordpress page here: https://moonlambo.wordpress.com/2018/01/14/xrp-how-much-will-it-be-worth/ I'm absolutely addicted to learning about XRP & Ripple, and following developments in the market place. This has become my new favorite interest, hobby, obsession, so I'm going to participate in the XRP in a bigger way moving forward. I'll also be launching a Youtube channel in the near future which will primarily cover Ripple & XRP. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- XRP: How Much Will it be Worth? moonlambo Uncategorized January 14, 2018 By: Matt (Moon Lambo) Speculation on the future price of XRP is not short in supply. While frequenting social media I regularly find members of the XRP community stating, sometimes arbitrarily, what they believe the maximum price for a single XRP coin could one day be. While no one could possibly know what the timeline for growth and adoption of the coin will look like, it is possible to make a reasonable price limit prediction if we’re only considering it’s primary use case as a bridge currency for cross-border settlement of payments. Scope of the Market It’s important to understand the current volume of monetary transactions on a macro scale. Speaking in terms of order of magnitude, the dollars transferred in the cross-border payment market dwarfs the value of every market in existence. SWIFT, arguably the market leader, transfers about $1.25 quadrillion per year. CHIPS transfers about $400 trillion per year, and Fedwire transfers about $900 trillion per year. This adds up to roughly $2.55 quadrillion transferred annually, or about $9.8 trillion worth of transactions each business day. Perhaps the greatest pain point financial institutions face when processing cross-border payments is sourcing the liquidity necessary to make such transactions possible. As recently as the end of 2015, balances tied up globally in nostro accounts exceeded $27 trillion. Ripple is working tirelessly to position XRP as the premiere source for on-tap liquidity and the fastest option for settlement of payments. As such, XRP is poised to solve what is, on an annual basis, a multi-quadrillion dollar problem. The implicit value of the opportunity at hand cannot be overstated. Breaking Down the Numbers Let that data sink in for a moment. Roughly $27 trillion is parked in transactional accounts at this very moment to facilitate the transfer & settlement of the comparably smaller figure of $9.8 trillion on a daily basis. That means that XRP will need to have a market cap of $9.8 trillion just to accommodate the average daily transactions of all cross border payments systems in order to achieve 100% market share. While I don’t find it reasonable to predict XRP will be used for all payments within this market, at the outset of this blog I cited my goal as pegging a reasonable upper limit to the value of XRP. This assumes 100% dominance. Here goes: There are currently 38,739,144,847 XRP coins in circulation at the time of this writing. I’ll round up to 39 billion for the sake of simpler calculations Assume a market cap of $27 trillion for XRP which is the value that is already in nostro accounts today. To determine the value of each individual coin we divide the market cap by total circulating supply, or $27 trillion divided by 39 billion. That comes out to a value of $692.30 for each XRP coin. That’s the number; $692.30 per XRP. That was calculated using the most accurate estimates available based on knowable data, and only considers it’s use case as a mechanism for cross-border settlements by financial institutions. That being said, this figure doesn’t do much to help us determine what the true value of XRP might be one day because too many things are unknowable. The reason $27 trillion is sitting in nostro accounts just waiting to be used to facilitate payment transactions is that it currently takes upwards of 5 days for a transaction to settle, and the demand for transactions ebbs and flows. Thus, financial institutions must have much more money sitting idle in transactional accounts than they think they’ll need, just in case. Compare that 5 day transaction time with XRP which takes a mere 4 seconds to settle transactions. I find it reasonable to speculate that not much more than the average daily value of transactions, $9.8 trillion, would need to be held in the form of XRP if financial institutions adopt the technology. That would mean a lower upper limit when speculating about the future value of XRP than if $27 trillion were still needed to be on hand for liquidity. However, if XRP became the standard for transactions, you could expect an increase in the volume of cross border transactions. Put simply, the speed and low cost of XRP sourced transactions would create an unknowable amount of new demand which would increase the XRP market cap, and with it the value of each coin. A Moving Target The trouble with price speculation is that the value of the factors that are needed for calculations are always changing. In December 2017 Ripple placed 55 billion XRP in escrow and will release a maximum of 1 billion XRP per month until the entire supply is in the market one day. This will radically change the amount of XRP in circulation over time. The implications of such? The point at which the supply of XRP meets the demand of the market will change regularly and will result in a continually shifting equilibrium price. However, it’s also true that with every single transfer of XRP, a tiny amount of it is shredded forever, decreasing the supply slowly over time and making it more valuable. Store of Value At the outset I stated that it’s easy to make a reasonable price limit prediction if we’re only considering XRP’s value as a bridge currency for cross-border transactions. What I didn’t mention until now is that I believe it’s silly to think about the potential of XRP exclusively in such terms. How many of you have considered that to date, XRP’s primary use is as a store of value? That vast majority of XRP in circulation is not currently held by financial institutions. It’s held by people like you and me: speculative investors. Bitcoin is currently being treated as a digital version of gold, so why can’t the same be true for XRP? It’s my contention that as demand for XRP soars over time, people will treat it like they treat gold. I believe that the market cap of XRP will one day soar to the trillions, supplanting Bitcoin of it’s current position as the number one digital asset in the world. If financial institutions adopt XRP en masse this year, it could be number one before the end of 2018. Such a development would dramatically increase the visibility of XRP and would only serve to spur mass adoption of XRP as a store of value. What could that mean for the value of XRP? Consider this: The market cap for gold is about $7.8 trillion If XRP one day matches the value that gold is today, that adds an additional value of $200 per XRP based on the current circulating supply of the coin Additional Applications of XRP The number of real world use cases for XRP is seemingly endless. What if major credit card companies used XRP to settle their transactions? A few weeks ago, a blogger named “Crowd Conscious” wrote a piece about what would happen to the value of XRP if Visa & Mastercard jumped on the Ripple bandwagon. I’ll link to the blog below in case you’d like to take a look at how the numbers were crunched, but here is the bottom line: If XRP were used by Visa it would increase the value of each XRP by $229.742 If XRP were used by Mastercard it would increase the value of each XRP by $90.35 The party doesn’t stop there. Ripple recently announced that 3 out of the 5 largest money transfer companies in the world have committed to using XRP. Days after this announcement it was confirmed that one of those companies is Moneygram. Western Union & PayPal are two additional names that have been floating around as potential early adopters of XRP. Be patient; time will reveal all business entities that plan to team up with Ripple and utilize XRP. In reality just about any company that is transferring money could use XRP to settle payments, which is why everything I’ve written about in this particular blog entry is just the tip of the iceberg. Imagine if companies like Amazon, Walmart, Uber, and eBay began using XRP. I’ve already cited several examples above, where numbers have been crunched, and if combined then in theory could push the price of a single XRP to over $1,000. Not that I believe this is exactly how things will play out, but the point of this exercise is to help people to understand that we have barely scratched the surface of the use cases for XRP. As such, I believe that the average investor has no earthly idea of the potential of what they just threw their money in. While Ripple’s core message is that they believe XRP should be the standard for cross border payment settlements, the truth is that there are and endless number of uses that would increase the value of XRP far beyond what it could ever be if it were only to be used by financial institutions. How much could XRP be worth one day? As Ripple’s lead cryptographer David Schwartz once wrote, it “Depends on how big you want to dream.” DISCLAIMER: I am not a financial adviser. None of what has been written here should be considered financial advice; it is not. Do your own research before investing in any digital asset, and understand that investing in any cryptocurrency is inherently risky. You need to be prepared to lose your entire investment.
  23. At the end of the article in the following reference, I found this comment: https://www.craigbeck.com/xrp-ripple-price-prediction-for-2018/ So what this guy is saying makes some sense to me. Why? I believe that Ripple has the power to control the XRP price by means of owning 60% of the shares. It will try to keep the price within a stable average because price volatility is the downside Banks see in the other cryptocurrencies and because they want to be able to use it within their system without having to calculate price differences all the time (As an example, Microsoft temporarily suspended Bitcoin usage in their app store for the same reason). So keeping the price rising in a steady trend seems to be Ripple's strategy, however how will they control the price if widespread adoption of Banks bought lots of XRPs to start using them? In this case, I believe that the XRP price will have to go high sooner or later. Having partnerships with 100 Banks, is different than 500 or 1000, or 2000! Correct me if I am wrong. I am obviously one of those who is interested in making a long term (1 or 2 year) storage of XRP coins, that's why I would love to hear your opinions about this theory. Thank You!
