  1. How will ripple embrace 5G internet? Are ripple’s labs looking at the technology to further reduce the transaction time? I imagine as the world grows, and XRP mainstreams the need for infinitely faster transaction times will be paramount.
  2. Hello folks, while having an argument with somebody recently I wondered how financial institutions receive their stash of XRP. I also wondered how the process of releasing XRPs into the market works on a technical level. Like, the concept of it. Lets get this straight for the purpose of knowledge sharing and how to counter FUD when having an argument. The following examples came to my mind. 1. Ripple Labs fills some XRP wallet and provides it to the financial institution, which pays Ripple Labs some money for it. The market is not affected, but the number of XRPs in circulation increased. This deal has no effect to the XRP price. 2. Ripple Labs creates some oder(s) on RCL which the financial institution fulfills. XRPs in circulation increases, plus the XRP price within the market changes due to the deal. Here I am not sure how the deal on RCL can be guaranteed between two specific parties. In case this happens on the open order books e.g. I myself could participate on the oder(s) which might not be desired by the financial institution and Ripple Labs. In case this deal would happen on the open order books the price would play a bigger role because of "manipulation" of the price be it up or down. 3. The financial institution goes to Poloniex and gets their stash there. Just joking. I think we agree this will never happen. The question remains. How does this work? Are there technical features on RCL or is there some known strategy on how this can be done? We know that the SBI gig is coming soon. They either already have or they still will receive their stash. So how can something like this be accomplished? Thanks gang.
  3. Hi, Here is my take on XRP speculation, Ripple labs' pitch weak point and also about those technical analysis always popping out in crypto-investing. Sorry to appear to mix different subjects in my post but they are all intimately related. Technical Analysis: I invested in stock for a few years since approx 2005. Since then I read many books on the subject and discovered a few things by loosing and making money. In any field there are always a very few real experts. In finance I know only one expert whose predictions and advices proved true and sound for the most extended period of time and that expert is named Warren Buffet (he's worth 73 Billions). You can go back and read all the Berkshire Hattaway investors letters that he releases every year since 1977: http://www.berkshirehathaway.com/letters/letters.html The dude is almost always right to the point where he got called the "Oracle of Omaha". Anyway here is what Warren Buffet thinks of technical analysis, he once said this: "I realized that technical analysis didn't work when I turned the chart upside down and didn't get a different answer." Another expert in investing called Peter Lynch (the one who became the most famous investor in the world when he took over the Fidelity Magellan mutual fund in May of 1977 and turned $20 million into the largest mutual fund in the world, outperforming the market by a mind-boggling 13.4% per year annualized!) Here is what Peter thinks of technical analysis, he said: “Charts are great for predicting the past.” That said there are surely a few things we can learn from charts. Like when volume is shrinking, there are almost no news and the graph is swinging 50% up 50% down every day, you are in front of a casino. And that's what XRP should be considered like: a casino. Putting money is XRP now is like playing it at a Casino. Speculation: One reason I think this, is also because there are absolutely no fundamentals in that currency. If you could buy stocks from Ripple (there will surely an IPO one day) then you could at least get some fundamentals from that company. But right now XRP are a total invention that is still worth absolutely nothing in theory while the Ripple company is worth something. and XRP does not equal stocks in Ripple Labs!!! While many people seems to invest in it like if it was the case. And yes the Ripple network looks amazing for banks. There are a lot of chances it could succeed. But Ripple can succeed with a XRP forever at 0.000005 cents USD (it's not by luck that XRP has 6 decimals). And it could succeed with a XRP worth 2000$ USD. And it could also succeed without XRP at all. Think about whose hands you are putting your money into when investing in XRP. The banks and Ripple Labs owners (and also that guy who left Ripple with Billions of XRP). They have absolute power on your investment: The banks: it seems Ripple's success is in their hands. If they want it, it will succeed, if they decide they are not interested in or they wan to create their own protocal similar to Ripple, then Ripple will fail miserably. They decide they don't want to use XRP (the alternatives are endless for any imaginative mind) XRP will fail. And you know how the banks are! (if not please see the movie "The big short" or just read the story of the 2007-2008 crash!). The banks are ready to do anything legal or not to steal your money as long as they can do it without consequences and in 2007-2008 despite of the fact it was the HUGEST THEFT in history of mankind, they got away with it without any consequences at all. That's why today all the big pockets put their money into banks. Banks will always find a way to win and **** the small investors. Never forget this! The Ripple Labs team: I don't know them personally, they seem like very good salesmen and transparent enough. Their story is credible in many points except one. One point that I'm turning in all sides in my mind and can't get to believe in it. It's when they say that it's not in Ripple's interest to flood the market with their billions of XRP. Yes it's not in Ripple's interests so only semantically it's true but it's in the XRP's OWNER (==Ripple Labs owners and 1 or 2 outsiders)'s interests a tremendously huge time, I would even say BILLIONS of times!!! I mean if XRP go to 2 or 3$ USD in value and volume is there, they can potentially all become instant billionaires out of thin air by just dumping all their XRP. I know about the escrow thing but what about "after the time frame they promised to hold it"? And what if there is some kind of way to go around this that we still don't know? We have to trust them! The Ripple Labs team could be doing a Pump and Dump scheme any time, they are the only one who decide if they do it or not. You put money in XRP, you put trust in them about that 100%. On the other hand kudos to the Ripple Labs team for at least writing this on their website: "Private exchanges and liquidity providers may choose to hold additional XRP for trading. Ripple (the company) does not promote XRP as a speculative investment". It should be put on a neon blinking banner on all trading platforms!
  4. (Be aware that this is me feeding the hype and only my 2 cents) The investing angels that guide me tell me that more is to come. Hold on to your socks fellow ripple-ians and profit hungry brothers. The real reason I have such confidence is that ripple is the only cryptocurrency that has traditional financial institutions investing and testing it. This means that they do not want to get left behind and the fact that they put their confidence into ripple is a good sign for all cryptocurrencies because it validates the concept and technology. One thing we must all understand is that a currency is only as valuable as the market allows/wants it to be and it shows this through adoption (volume) and can unfortunately be manipulated by supply ( think of the diamond industry). The fact that ripple is centralized makes the majority of cryptocurrency enthusiasts dislike it as it is antithetical to the premise on which cryptocurrencies where created, that of being a decentralized, peer to peer method of exchanging value. But I say this again, it is only as valuable as the number of people who accept and adopt it. Of my short experience in cryptocurrencies I can say that there are two main types of cryptocurrency enthusiasts. In category 1 we have those who are genuinely invested in the decentralized ideal and want to create a parallel financial ecosystem where we are all in control of our own money and there is no financial third party to ask for permission to send money. This is an ideal that requires most users to have an above average understanding of the technology or at least be aware of it and know how to use the wallets and exchanges. Herein lies the true problem and barrier to entry. If cryptocurrencies are to be truly adopted they will require a more mass market friendly platform to offer their coins on and they will also have to be useful in that they can either buy goods and services (such as how bitcoin is accepted at many online merchants) or they can be more unique and be a way to transfer and exchange money between people and between banks (ripple). On the other hand, we have the second type of crypto enthusiast who is profit driven and feeds of the speculation and high volatility. This type of enthusiast cares less about the technology and the ideal and more about the volatility and market manipulation. Though even those in category 1 enjoy the growth in their net worth. Exchanges only exist because there is a large demand for them from enthusiasts in this category and the fact that they are unregulated and have such low fees means that any average person with a decent internet connection and an ID can try and benefit from this volatile industry (desirably so). However, what ripple is doing is legitimizing the industry and if they play their cards right they may be opening the door for other cryptocurrencies and start-ups in this area. Much like how Ethereum has been revolutionizing the cryptocurrency industry in applications, ripple will allow for the beginning of mass market exposure to and adoption of cryptocurrencies. And yes, all those of us who have just found out about it or have been in this word since the birth of bitcoin will regarded as the “lucky ones” who were there early enough to reap the financial rewards. N.B. I am not a financial expert and I do not pretend to be. Please do your own research and invest wisely and only what you can afford to lose and still feed yourself. In addition, remember that sometimes hype may be bad and only slow, sustained growth is true growth.
  5. A page named RippleTalk has been launched on reddit by one of famous Cryptocurrency redditor(Xezirone) to support lovely Ripple(XRP), i subscribed to it, join and support the Ripple https://www.reddit.com/r/RippleTalk/

  8. Ripple Labs has issued a complaint against Kefi Labs: http://www.rfcexpress.com/lawsuits/trademark-lawsuits/california-northern-district-court/964467/ripple-labs-inc-v-kefi-labs-llc-et-al/summary/ This company apparently runs a site called getripple.io Some kind of app to download and share photos?
