  1. Blog URL: https://xrpcommunity.blog/convincing-the-muggles-mainstream-crypto-adoption/ How do we make crypto friendly to those outside the market?

  2. https://www.coindesk.com/clayton-sec-ico-funding-security-offering The SEC chairman spoke in his personal capacity at Consensus: Invest. The excerpted non-answer-answer was specific to in temporal proximity to a mention of XRP's status.
  3. Bitcoin and Ethereum are mentioned in the speech, but XRP is not. https://www.sec.gov/news/speech/speech-hinman-061418 1.Is there a person or group that has sponsored or promoted the creation and sale of the digital asset, the efforts of whom play a significant role in the development and maintenance of the asset and its potential increase in value? 2.Has this person or group retained a stake or other interest in the digital asset such that it would be motivated to expend efforts to cause an increase in value in the digital asset? Would purchasers reasonably believe such efforts will be undertaken and may result in a return on their investment in the digital asset? 3.Has the promoter raised an amount of funds in excess of what may be needed to establish a functional network, and, if so, has it indicated how those funds may be used to support the value of the tokens or to increase the value of the enterprise? Does the promoter continue to expend funds from proceeds or operations to enhance the functionality and/or value of the system within which the tokens operate? 4.Are purchasers “investing,” that is seeking a return? In that regard, is the instrument marketed and sold to the general public instead of to potential users of the network for a price that reasonably correlates with the market value of the good or service in the network? 5.Does application of the Securities Act protections make sense? Is there a person or entity others are relying on that plays a key role in the profit-making of the enterprise such that disclosure of their activities and plans would be important to investors? Do informational asymmetries exist between the promoters and potential purchasers/investors in the digital asset? 6.Do persons or entities other than the promoter exercise governance rights or meaningful influence?. 2nd part: 1.Is token creation commensurate with meeting the needs of users or, rather, with feeding speculation? 2.Are independent actors setting the price or is the promoter supporting the secondary market for the asset or otherwise influencing trading? 3.Is it clear that the primary motivation for purchasing the digital asset is for personal use or consumption, as compared to investment? Have purchasers made representations as to their consumptive, as opposed to their investment, intent? Are the tokens available in increments that correlate with a consumptive versus investment intent? 4.Are the tokens distributed in ways to meet users’ needs? For example, can the tokens be held or transferred only in amounts that correspond to a purchaser’s expected use? Are there built-in incentives that compel using the tokens promptly on the network, such as having the tokens degrade in value over time, or can the tokens be held for extended periods for investment? 5.Is the asset marketed and distributed to potential users or the general public? 6.Are the assets dispersed across a diverse user base or concentrated in the hands of a few that can exert influence over the application? 7.Is the application fully functioning or in early stages of development?
  4. July 27, 2018 16:45 Pretty interesting ? Source: https://www.ccn.com/nasdaq-plots-to-legitimize-cryptocurrency-in-secret-meeting-report/

  7. The uncertainty of some XRP chatters is actually quite amusing. Especially, if you can be emotionally detached from your own XRP holdings. I'm watching it grow, like paint drying it takes time. However, with crypto, we could see some serious gains quickly for no reason. Even then, just because the harvest is plentiful doesn't mean we must eat the fruit. I for one am holding for a couple or few years unless the fantastic $589 appears before eoy. I have a few reasons of why, and how it could possibly reach that price. All, I can say is, I am still bullish. More so today than I have ever been. The fundamentals are there, the utility will follow. Fasten those seat belts because 90% of us will sell early. A $100/XRP is extremely tempting. It's worth more than that. I'm reading that the Federal Reserve is attentive...$250/XRP would change my life. Tempting. But, it's worth more than that. When the SEC makes an announcement.. who knows? Call my XRP what you will I call it freedom ?? What do you think is going to happen these next few months/years? P.S. tin foil hat optional

This is because during _____’s (name a past president) term, the _____ (second department) forgot to close a loop-hole, which is now allowing ____ (name a country) to use _____ (same altcoin) to take the place of the USD as THE world currency. Brad Garlinghouse was extremely _____ (adverb) at the news that a decision on XRP’s status would be delayed. Newly clean-shaven, he _____ed (past tense verb) that there might be a _____ (adverb) _____ (noun) at the _____ (noun) of the _____ (noun).

For best results, have a friend pick the words while you fill them in. Do not allow them to read the template first.
  9. Below is the speech given by William Hinman Director, Division of Corporation Finance SEC live at the yahoo finance all markets crypto summit a few minutes ago. Some very interesting comments made - particularly some discussion around how decentralization appears to play a role in a potential securities classification or not. Also, there was a fairly clear comment regarding the fact that neither Bitcoin or Ethereum could be reasonably classified as securities at this stage of their development. The SEC director was also repeatedly mentioning for enterprises and/or digital asset authorities to come to them for clearer clarification around the status of a given assets status as a security. We already know Ripple works closely within the regulatory framework, but I have to believe Ripple is already way into discussions with the SEC about the status of XRP and their network and where they stand classification-wise. Thoughts? https://www.sec.gov/news/speech/speech-hinman-061418
  10. So I was thinking that Xpring will lead to Ethereum being an after thought in the crypto market. Knowing the capabilities of Xpring we know it can do more than Ether and has a huge backing already when you add in Ripple's partners. How does this equal the death of Ethereum though? My thoughts are we know the sec is constantly scrutinizing Ether and could say it's a security. This would kill every dapp on the platform. Coin creators would be livid and would want to sue the SEC because of this. But what if they had a better option? Enter Xpring. The XRP ledger can hold any coin or token today. It doesn't matter what platform it's on and it can be easily added to the ledger with its current value. So why is this a possibility? Ripple's partner The United States Federal Reserve. To maintain a semblance of control they need an asset they can 'trust 'and that isn't Ether. I see them kicking Ether to the curb and have Xpring scoop up every dapp and token on the Ethereum platform. Imagine all that value coming into Xrp almost overnight. I find this outcome highly probable given the current circumstances. Thoughts?
  11. You'll want to read my blog to find some items you may not have known about before Blockchain Week in NYC starts this week! What do I cover in this latest entry? I reveal the two surmised reasons for the market downturn two days ago, who Ripple is sending to Consensus, and discuss the guidance that the SEC provided for cryptocurrencies. In addition, I tell you about a professional organization called YPO that visited Ripple headquarters a few days ago - it's a news story that most mainstream media didn't pick up. In addition, I cover the speculation about Apple adopting the new Payment Request API, formal xRapid cost savings confirmation, and I reveal updated wallet statistics.

  13. Question: Where is the problem? Pls. see https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Security_(finance) Take a look at the classification. More control = OK / More regulation = OK Thats was banks, fonds all financial institution want! So, breathe Perfect for Rippel and Ether. Reverse not perfect for other cryptos. Not everything is like at first sight.....
  14. Article is a year old but its now relevant. It's long...but I feel it will help this discussion. I don't believe XRP will be classified as a security at all and mostly it's just a lot of FUD in the air.
  15. https://www.ccn.com/ripple-ceo-cryptocurrency-market-outsized-reaction-sec-announcement/ “More My POV on the SEC statement today – the market is having an outsized reaction. Exchanges ultimately have three options ahead of them: de-list ICOs, register, or close. Certainly big implications for ETH given ERC20 tokens,” said Garlinghouse. As Garlinghouse emphasized, the SEC’s decision to require exchanges to register with the agency for listing ERC20 tokens or ICOs only impacts tokens launched on top of the Ethereum network that are considered as securities by the SEC. On February 6, in a senate hearing, SEC chairman Jay Clayton noted that there exists a clear difference between ICO tokens and cryptocurrencies. Clayton explained that while ICOs are securities, others are “true cryptocurrencies.”
  16. More setbacks for Bitcoin are acting like an anchor on the crypto market. In today's blog entry, I talk about those factors, as well as how I see XRP diverging from Bitcoin's market leading dominance. For Ripple and XRP, it's been nonstop good news over the last four days, with the big news being the anticipated release of the MoneyTap application by the Japanese Banking Consortium (JBC). I discuss the details behind this application plus I have some surprises about possible business deals you might not know about. It includes the partial acquisition of a hardware wallet company by SBI, the addition of XRP to the BitIT marketplace, a Grayscale investment fund specifically targeting XRP, and the rumor of Ripple technology underlying a deal between Saison and Grab. Rounding out the list is an update for those in the XRP community eagerly awaiting the release of the Kyte wallet! I hope you enjoy - please leave any feedback below.

    Regulation is Coming

    Looks like the taxman is finally going to come knocking for our American friends. The US Senate is reportedly considering a bill to outlaw the concealment of ownership of digital currency accounts by American citizens domestically and abroad. https://www.rt.com/business/411869-us-cryptocurrency-ownership-rules/ I think we all knew it would happen eventually, but will be interesting to see how the markets react when implemented.
  22. SEC cracking down on ICO’s and exchanges; quote; “any person or entity engaging in the activities of an exchange must register as a national securities exchange.” https://news.bitcoin.com/sec-chairman-initial-coin-offerings-will-have-to-register-as-securities/ Good news for Ripple...

    SEC Investigative Report, Securities

  25. The SEC just launched its first investigation of ICO. The token is called Dibcoin and is primarily and almost exclusively traded on Livecoin.net. Guess which other token is almost exclusively traded there, QuantumProject ($QAU) which was just launched by @gatehub. This token just smells fishy to me @enej @gregor. http://www.coindesk.com/florida-firm-triggers-sec-suspension-with-cryptocurrency-claims/
