  5. Hi, can anyone explain why the value of XRP (Ripple "tokens") needs to fluctuate? Why didn't Ripple (the company) just say that their tokens are worth 10 cents each forever. Just like postage stamps have a fixed price (except when prices are increased due to increased delivery costs or inflation). No-one speculates on the value of frequent flyer tokens (sorry "points") or current (non rare) postage stamps, so why are XRP and other crypto's different? Surely they aren't rare already - there are millions of XRP's and thousands of different "coins" apparently and more can be created easily anytime - there is no limit, no rarity. Ripple can just decide to release more XRP if they want to - there's no law to stop them is there? So why are these tokens worth more than postage stamps and frequent flyer points? Or cash (fiat money)? It was a genius idea to call these things "coins" because it makes them feel like money. But they aren't money (or coins), are they? XRP is just a token (actually just numbers) which can act as a short term intermediary in some international currency transactions. It's value is irrelevant for these transactions - yes it needs a value, but it could be 1 cent or 10 cents or any fixed arbitrary amount. I'm puzzled - please help me understand. Why do you think these are worth something as an investment??
  6. https://cryptocrimson.com/ripple-continues-to-decentralize-the-xrp-ledger-as-its-dominance-falls-to-21/ The total number of validators on the XRP ledger currently add up to 68 after the Ripple company initiated the increment of validators back in July 2017. In the announcement back in July that was made by the Ripple team to add 55 new validators, the following information was provided: TODAY WE ARE EXCITED TO ANNOUNCE THAT THE XRP LEDGER ECOSYSTEM HAS EXPANDED TO 55 VALIDATOR NODES, AN INCREASE OF 120 PERCENT SINCE MAY. THESE NEW VALIDATORS INCLUDE WORLDLINK, TELINDUS-PROXIMUS GROUP, BAHNHOF (SWEDISH ISP) AND AT TOKYO CORPORATION, AND JOIN A GROWING NETWORK OF LEADING COMPANIES AND ORGANIZATIONS CURRENTLY VALIDATING TRANSACTIONS ON THE XRP LEDGER, INCLUDING MICROSOFT, MASSACHUSETTS INSTITUTE OF TECHNOLOGY (MIT) AND CGI. Further checking the stats of validators on the Mini Validator List as of today, 15th August, we get a total of 68 validators with Ripple making up 21% of this number.

    Ripple Wins First Salvo in California-Based Court Case

    https://cointelegraph.com/news/us-federal-court-denies-motion-to-remand-against-ripple The U.S. District Court, Northern District of California has ruled to deny a motion to remand against Ripple, its subsidiary XRP II, and Ripple CEO Brad Garlinghouse, according to an official document issued August 10. The original lawsuit was first initiatedby XRP investor Ryan Coffey in a San Francisco court on May 3, 2018, claiming that he lost $551.89 while trading XRP tokens. The class action was filed by law firm Taylor-Copeland, alleging that Ripple sold XRP tokensin violation of both the U.S. the Securities Act and the California Corporations Code. The plaintiff also claimed that XRP is not genuinely decentralized. According to court documents, the plaintiff failed to show whether the presence of a Securities Act issue was sufficient to bar the defendant from removing an action under the Class Action Fairness Act. In the ruling the court found that, “The parties candidly admit that their research failed to turn up any case directly addressing this question and the court’s own research fared no better.”

  10. XRP was carefully designed and built on a solid technological foundation. In today's blog, I remind XRP Community members of its humble beginnings, along with providing my own perspective on the recent crypto market correction. Despite the market distraction, progress is marching forward - and quickly: Coil published a guide for those wishing to run their own ILP validator. Wietse Wind just published an updated XRPL Development Dashboard for fellow community developers, and Ripple just updated the default UNL with another non-Ripple validator, edging *very* close to sub-50% dominance of the recommended UNL List. Bittrex adds direct USD fiat pairings to XRP on its platform, and Coins.ph (Philippines), PayBis, and CryiptoHub all decide to support XRP. There's also a great new XRP-related content site that just opened two days ago.

  11. translated from: https://btcdirect.eu/nl-nl/blog/abn-amro-franx-ripple/ Dutch company is experimenting with Ripple Franx is going to experiment with the Ripple protocol. The subsidiary of ABN AMRO specializes in international payment transactions. In this way, Franx is looking for ways to process international payments faster. That reports the ANP. What makes Ripple different from SWIFT? At the moment most banks and payment processors still use the SWIFT protocol. This is a system that allows banks to transfer money to other banks. Even if they do not yet have any cooperation with that bank. Swift has been the standard worldwide since 1977, but the system is rather slow. It usually takes a few days for a SWIFT payment to be processed. Franx is actively looking for a solution to replace this old system. At the moment, the Dutch company is experimenting with the Ripple system. The Ripple protocol has been developed to process international payments on the blockchain. It can process more than 1500 transactions per second under normal circumstances. If necessary, the protocol can even scale up to 50,000 transactions per second . Ripple must therefore make the transactions processed by Franx especially faster. In addition, a payment via Ripple is a lot cheaper than a SWIFT payment. Do you want to make a 100 euro payment from the Netherlands to the US via Swift? Via Swift you pay 15 euros to commissions. The same payment to China will soon cost 21 euros to commission! A payment via the Ripple protocol, on the other hand, costs only a few cents . How does XRP work? Ripple offers lower transaction costs by using the XRP coin. Banks can simply buy a stock of this coin and use it to make mutual payments on the blockchain. Certainly if you want to make a payment to a distant country, where normally the money comes to the destination via different banks, this can be a big deal. Because the coin is also traded on crypto exchanges, customers (banks for example) of Ripple always have a kind of deposit. They know for sure that they can always convert their XRP into fiat money. Conversely, crypto investors have the certainty that their investment in XRP does represent a certain value. The more banks use the Ripple protocol, the greater the demand for the XRP coin. What does Franx see in Ripple? "The idea behind Ripplenet is very strong," says Evert van der Hoorn, project manager Blockchain at Franx. Van der Hoorn emphasizes that it is important for its customers that they have the certainty that their products are paid as soon as they ship them. Ripple facilitates the fast transactions that are necessary to make this possible. He also says that it is important for Franx to become less dependent on SWIFT. However, Franx will remain dependent for a part on the SWIFT protocol. For Ripple is by no means such a broad base as for SWIFT. This is quickly changing. Meanwhile, larger banks such as Bank of Tokyo Mitsubishi and Santander are already using the Ripple network. The experiment with Ripple runs until the autumn of 2018.
  12. Ripple XRP: Forced Perspective. Why the sky is falling
  13. Three is the first number to which the meaning "all" was given. It is The Triad, being the number of the whole, as it contains the beginning, a middle, and an end. The power of three is universal and is the tripartide nature of the world as heaven, earth, and waters. It is human as body, soul and spirit. Also, Three is the number of perfection, or completion. This number is repeated throughout the Bible as a symbol of completeness. God's attributes are three: omniscience, omnipresence, and omnipotence. ... On the third day, the earth rose from the water, symbolic of resurrection life. Three is the number of dimensions that humans can perceive. Humans perceive the universe to have three spatial dimensions, but some theories, such as string theory, suggest there are more. The triangle, a polygon with three edgesand three vertices, is the most stable physical shape. For this reason it is widely utilized in construction, engineering and design. The ability of the human eye to distinguish colors is based upon the varying sensitivity of different cells in the retina to light of different wavelengths. Humans being trichromatic, the retina contains three types of color receptor cells, or cones. S33 you TH3R3!! 🚀🌚💰

  22. https://cryptodaily.co.uk/2018/07/ripple-release-new-advice-for-xrp-investors/ According to Ripple: “The importance of deploying blockchain for real use-cases requires a deeper knowledge of the history of the technology itself together with broader business and economic know how to get the job done.” The latest books recommended by Ripple are as follows: “The Truth Machine: The Blockchain and the Future of Everything by Paul Vigna and Michael J. Casey is a deep dive into blockchain technology. Vigna and Casey go all the way back to the Middle Ages, to provide context on why the technology has so much potential.” “The Innovator’s Dilemma: The Revolutionary Book that Will Change the Way You Do Business by Clayton M. Christensen provides a thoughtful outline of why every company, even those that develop new technology must be aware of its applications and limitation, especially when it’s time to move on.” “Matchmakers: The New Economics of Multisided Platforms by David S. Evans and Richard Schmalensee is at the top of reading lists for top business leaders and entrepreneurs. The two economists break down the mechanics of what powers the business of the biggest players in the digital economy.” The included links will take you straight to Amazon, clearly Ripple’s venue of choice for purchasing books. Wait, is this a sign that Amazon could soon accept XRP? See more for yourself, here. So, there we have it. Some stellar advice from Ripple (pardon the pun). It might be difficult to find the time to read in this fast paced world, but as an XRP investor, or a blockchain enthusiast, if you find this time, you’ll benefit from better investments in the future. The more you understand about this industry, the more you’ll succeed.
  23. September, 2023 It is said, that change is the only constant in life. I couldn´t agree more. In last 10 years, my life changed and evolved me and for me in so many unexpected ways. If I look back at the last 10 years of my life and think of what I am most thankful and what shifted my life the most, I think first of my wife. Last weekend was exactly 10 years since we got married. And our wedding is an absolutely romantic story. We married on a tiny island, the place is like from a fairytale. It´s called the island of lake Bled, a magical place in the small country where I was born – Slovenia. Adding the sugar to the romantic cake - Slovenia is also the only country where the word LOVE is implicit in it´s name. Lake Bled, Slovenia The second thing, that did not transform just my life for better, but positively affected lives of almost everyone living on this planet is not a person. It started as a fintech, that revolutionized first the world´s financial sector, became a global standard for payments by 2020 and today we see that it made a huge positive effect on lifestyles of billions of people from all around the world. These global ripples were started by a company with the same name - Ripple, which managed to brilliantly incorporate it´s native digital asset called XRP into their vision, mission and execution. I am happy that I first heard of XRP already back in 2017. There was something extremely attractive in it for me. The vision and the visionaries behind it, seeing it´s potential and extremely attractive prices per XRP. Many of my friends and family thoughts I was a dreamer. I remember buying my first XRP for around 0.15 USD and I kept accumulating them ever since. It was not always easy to see the crazy roller-coaster rides of XRP´s value compared to EUR or USD. I remember the price rising to 3.4USD/XRP at the end of December 2017 and then back to 0.42 USD in July 2018. Then XRP got regulated started to get more and more use cases, causing the value of XRP to shift exponentially. More and more banks, payment providers and FI started to see it´s benefits. XRP got unstoppable and became the talk of the day. Let me tell you, how XRP changed my life. I have always been a strong believer in Ripple´s and XRP´s vision. Reserching the Ripple and following their news has been a daily task. Through #xrpcommunity on Twitter, I have learned how and where to gather the important information. Community has been hungry to get and spread the new information out and very strong at fighting the FUD about . At the times prior to XRP being deployed in real use cases, we were strong believers in an idea, investors and supporters of a future vision. Today I sit here, writing this real story with a big smile of an inner satisfaction, thankful for so many important life lessons that I learned through the process of investing and holding XRP. We were persistently buying and accumulating XRPs every month with my wife – as much as our income from the steady jobs allowed us at that time. When the critical adoption mass for XRP was reached back in the early 2020, it was clear to everyone that XRP is really changing the world. This was the year when we decided to cash out a part of our investment in order to fulfill one of our dreams - we bought a family house in Slovenia by the sea and we were able to fund by ourselves our long planned vision and established a holistic health and retreat center on the Slovenian coast. In early 2020, all the EU countries had their governments system running on Ripple´s ILP, meaning all the legal procedures could be prepared, signed and executed within a day. The InterLedger Protocol, that governments started to use, now allows all kinds of businesses and corporations to connect with them. We were able to sign a real-estate contract with a real estate agent, pay the housing taxes, get the ownership of the house with some simple taps on the mobile screens and scanning some QR-codes. And the best part of it – we could do a full house downpayment in XRP. All done so easily, secure and most importantly – quick. A process of buying a real estate with all the legal procedures that took days, or maybe even weeks back in 2010´s is now done within hours. A big milestone was breached and we could see the ongoing global financial revolution happening in front of our eyes. A way to a cashless society. Let me describe you, how I spent my last weekend and you will understand much better, in how many ways XRP and Ripple´s technology is appreciatively infiltrated in our lives on a daily basis. All the services I mention below, allow us to use XRP as the settlement asset and are integrated under the slogan “Runs on Ripple” into the Ripple.net - the internet of value. Here is the short sum up of the last weekend: Sounds of birds singing and sun throwing its pleasantly warm morning rays through the window woke me up that Friday morning. Very unusual, as the kids are usually the ones who come to our room and wake us up before the sunrise. What a perfect start of the day. I felt ready to make the most out of the weekend infront of me. I soaked in that moment, kissed my beautiful – still sleeping queen, checked also on the still sleeping kids, went to the kitchen and prepared wonderfully smelling organic coffee for me and my wife and warm cacao for the kids. I didn´t wake up my dearest ones yet, I knew that the coffee smell, spreading throughout the house will do that just fine. As I enjoyed my morning coffee, my Ipad notified me that it is soon time to charge our utilities XRP wallet. I really need to say, that this new interconnected micro-payment system made my life so much easier. Payments really became efficient and seamless in the last 5 years, as now I am able to pay for all services just “as I go”. The monthly subscriptions are finally a thing of the past. XRPay app on my smart phone enables me to have a complete control and overview of all the monthly costs. All I need to do is to connect the different service providers with my profile in the app and set a monthly amount of XRP that I want to transfer from my bank account. From there on I can relax, because all the household payments are taken care of. And we pay just as much as we spend, regardless if this are the liters of water used in the household, kilowatts of electricity, Megabits of data transfer for our internet/TV, minutes of conversations spent on all our mobile phones or kilograms of trash that we produce in a month. While choosing the services, integrated in the Ripple.net through the XRPay App, you automatically participate in an awesome XRPayback system, collecting the XRP drops in a virtual “bucket” wallet. It became a kind of a craze between the people, I have never really liked these payback things to much, they were kind of annoying, but this one is really good, it works and truly rewards. It´s got so popular, that many companies, especially small enterprises just rush to join the Ripple.net to get good exposure and many new customers. Who doesn´t join, is missing out, big time. With the “earned drops” you can once a year get discounts on the services that you already use, try your luck on the online XRP-lottery or donate them to the NGOs of your choice. In that moment the kids entered the kitchen and greeted me with their sleepy but so uplifting morning voices and we exchanged our good morning hugs. We made a plan, sneaked quietly into our master bedroom and the kiddos sang mommy a good morning song while being awkwardly careful bringing her the cup of coffee. A priceless moment. After finishing a delicious ham & eggs breakfast and spending some precious time with my family I needed to get ready for work. Before taking a shower, I ordered a taXRP - a driverless TAXI to pick me up in half an hour. Their service is great and the car arrives always on time. It got so popular in the last years that it is not worth having a car anymore if you leave within the range of 20 kilometers from the city center. I kissed my wife and the kids, entered the taXRP, scanned the QR code and off we went. I sat back, relaxed and enjoyed the half an hour ride. It was Friday, so the working day was today shorter for me and my thoughts were already wandering towards the family weekend activities. Tomorrow is our 10th wedding anniversary, so while driving to work, I reserved a table for two at our favorite Sushi place in town over the XRPay app and ordered a beautiful bouquet of roses from the local florist to be delivered tomorrow at 18:00 directly to the restaurant. I arrived at our center. We joined the Ripple.net as an enterprise shortly after our opening. Ripple developed an enterprise solution Xprise - a complete service for running and optimizing the processes in a company, which serves us amazingly. As I entered our center, the system automatically recognized my smart phone ID and my finger scan and my working time officially began. After a morning briefing with the employees, I came to my office. All the data from all different processes (accommodation and our services reservations, complete accounting, orders in restaurant, etc) is automatically gathered in real time, which offers me a complete overview and for example suggests price and costs adjustments to be able to reach the financial yearly goals. This almost completely automated processes management solution saves me a lot of time, allowing me to focus more on other important things , like for example evolving pleasant and stimulative working environment, education for employees and on the other hand being there more available for our customers. Because it was almost the end of the month, I needed to authorise the payrolls, automatically generated by Xprise. Our employees all choose to receive their salaries in XRPs. Click confirm. Done - salaries sent, taxes and social securities paid, again in XRP. After the few therapies that I still had on that day, it was time to enjoy the weekend together with my dearest ones. We promised the kids, that we go to see the new virtual reality movie, that just started playing in the virtual cinema. We bought the cinema family package over the XRPay, tickets with a family pack of popcorn, tortillas and coke. We are mostly on a very healthy diet, but there is no cinema for us without some “junk snacks” - a kind of a “not-so-healthy-family-tradition”, that we have and that we fully enjoy a few times a year. The next day, was our 10th wedding anniversary and we agreed with the kids that we bring them to spend the day with the grandparents, so we can have our day for ourselves. After a late breakfast, I ordered the 1000 XRPdrops coupon in the XRPay, which is enough to fill up the tank our oldtimer Mercedes Benz. All new cars today are electric and environmentally friendly and they are not cheap. Public transportation and driverless TAXI´s are so inexpensive that it is not really worth to own a car. But I always wanted to have a shiny good old MB 1967 Cabrio, just for pleasure, especially for the sunny summer days like that day. As we drove onto the highway, the toll system verified and scanned our car through a double check- blockchain verification - a registration document saved on my mobile phone and the special sensor installed in the car. When we left the highway, the same procedure repeated and XRP drops were automatically deducted from my digital XRP wallet as for the kilometers driven on the highway. While having a nice coffee by my parents, we agreed that the kids stay overnight by them, and that we all meet the next day in front of the church before the service. At this point I need to mention that also the Church modernised - they created an app and you can make your offering in XRP drops, simply by choosing the amount and scanning the QR code in the church. Smart, isn´t it? Kids were in good hands by my parents and we had our anniversary day just for ourselves and we enjoyed it to the maximum. My wife almost melted when a nice bottle of Champagne and a Bouquet of deep red roses were brought to the table at our favorite Sushi restaurant. We spent the rest of the evening on our terrace, overlooking the calm sea and a spectacular sunset, reviving sweet memories of our 10 years of marriage. What a journey. What a life. A life I always dreamt of. It is perfect. I must admit I am a lucky guy. Lucky, that I met the most loving, caring and beautiful woman - THE woman of my life, lucky to have the best, wonderful kids and supportive family, and lucky that I heard about Ripple in 2017 and have been buying XRP ever since. My absolute life changers.
  24. From July 30 through August 31, Ripple will match all public donations in support of the cause and help individuals sponsor children directly through Facebook. https://ripple.com/insights/ripple-and-raising-malawi-launch-campaign-to-sponsor-children-in-need/
  25. I decided to reach out to Kosta Peric, Deputy Director of Financial Services for the Poor at the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, yesterday about updates on the Level One Mojaloop project via Twitter. To be perfectly honest, I really didn't expect a reply but low-n-behold he did. While I couldn't get him to divulge any details with regards to implementations of the Mojaloop platform. He did tweet that they were currently working on 3 projects, 2 in Africa and 1 in the US. With the first of the three pilots set to go-live by the end of this year!!! See Twitter conversation below.
