  1. Back in April & May this year, when the big money really started getting in to crypto, I began noticing extreme correlations between various currencies. These movements were far too fast to be replicated by human eyes and fingers, so I concluded that they were bots. At around the same time, I was approached by an organisation which, as they put it, "invested in baskets of cryptocurrencies" according to my risk appetite. They had algorithmically designated all the various cryptocurrencies as being either high risk, medium risk or low risk. They may have had other categories as well, though I can't recall all the details of the conversation. I did end up investing with them though, and got in early on a couple of ICOS for which they had some sort of preferential / promised allocation in place. The reason I mention this is that I see it happening again. The correlations are back to being around 95%+ between various groups of currencies. For example, take a look at the price action of DGB, then compare it to SC. Similar risk profile. You will immediately see what I'm talking about. This is not human eyes and fingers, but bots automatically bidding/selling at exactly the same time to either take the price higher or lower at exactly the same time. The same is true of BTC, ETH and XRP right now - and because these appear to have a similar risk profile, they all move together. They will, of course, not move at the same time or in the same way as differently-profiled currencies. We've just seen a huge spike up in XRP of course, and that wasn't replicated in ETH or BTC. The bots are probably employing some form of sophisticated AI which can take into account sudden decoupling events based on news/announcements. I imagine this would be some form of sentiment analysis which examines news links, the reputation(s) of the entity/(ies) posting the link; the proximity and prevalence of positive and negative keywords etc. I have built a tool like this myself in the past for a social profiling business, so I certainly know they exist. I'm not saying that the correlation will always be there... but at the time of writing, we're looking at approx 100% price movement correlation. What can we take from this? Well. Two things: 1. To be very on guard, watching/waiting for news or events that impacts BTC's price negatively. Such as the current battle between BTC and BCH. Be aware that ETH and XRP will move in the exact same direction in the absence of positive news. Support levels in TA do not appear to matter. 2. Someone (could be human, but probably AI) believes that these three currencies, and possibly others as well, are in exactly the same (or very very close) risk profile category, hence the correlated moves. That's either worrying or encouraging I guess, depending on your outlook. Here is a USD chart example for past three days (faded background is Bitcoin/USD, opaque is XRP/USD). Shows a 99% price direction correlation, and a 95% price movement correlation.
  2. This from YouTube (under 10 minutes in length): Top 20 reasons why startups fail and Ripple won't While the author does not offer a lot of detail as to 'why' Ripple won't fail, at least according to some of the reasons in the bottom half of the list, they are still valid points to keep in mind when framing one's thinking about Ripple vs. the companies, organizations, or teams behind other crypto assets, be they budding or 'established.' Also, the author presents a critical summary of SWIFT, and briefly reviews Ripple partnerships. Although the focus here is not explicitly on XRP, it all adds to the context. Overall, this is the point of view of someone whose work in banking goes back to the 1980s, who has experienced first-hand the limitations of current options for money transfer, and who clearly believes in Ripple's potential, per previous videos as well.
  3. Hello guys! I would like to hear your thoughts on this article in which the IMF warns of a possible systemic risk in the Japanese banking system, including the Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group which I believe is a Ripple partner. Is it the IMF plowing the ground to bring the solution when things turn dark? https://jen.jiji.com/jc/eng?g=eco&k=2017101100951
  4. https://xrphodor.wordpress.com/2017/07/18/future-proof-your-portfolio-with-xrp/ This is my latest blog entry. A lot of crypto investors don't really think beyond a small "play" on Polo where they try to cash in on a hot crypto that's "going parabolic". But if you're looking to make an investment that has the most future potential, you have to see entire future trends and markets well ahead of time, like Ripple tends to do with uncanny accuracy, in my opinion. Let me know if you agree / disagree, and feel free to share as much as you like!

  5. Since most of us are in the habit of trying to guess what happens next, why not dig deep into your brainstorming or analytical mind to come up with what "the announcement" will be at Consensus next week? Something new that's not been demoed before is how @JoelKatz referenced it late last week. A feature update? A new strategy? Different interoperability? Fiat securitization? A mobile game-changer? An alliance? A partnership? A buy-out A lock-up? Whether you think traditionally (yes, this is already possible in the crypto space) or so far out of the box that you haven't even found the cardboard for the box yet, put your tame and wild ideas out here for the hodlers to munch on while the new-found money coming into Zerpland chews up sell orders by the hour. Have fun!
  6. Reuters article this morning entitled 'U.S. Treasury considering all tools to stop North Korea financing: official'. If the US, in cooperation with its global finance partners, choose to "choke" digital currencies via all means available, isn't there a fair risk that this entire marketplace gets disrupted until the threat of Mr. Kim is mitigated? - conduct DDOS on major exchanges - disallow BTC transactions - put all currencies in "transfer pergatory" - pump false alts as honey pots for the N. Korean hacks - etc. etc. Does the possibility of specific global threats impact your investments? Does the possibility of certain global threats outweigh others for you, or do you simply "index them" and go hell-bent-for-leather, as it used to be said in the US of A? Your opinions, please. "Hello, is this the NSA? Got anything, anything really strong to throw at the crypto world for a few months? Oh, I should call Israel? Or Russia? Thanks. I think I'll have M5 do that for us."
