  1. Ok, this is how to cash out your XRP via the XUMM wallet: for dummies edition. You will need a Bitstamp account for this method to work. I assume Gatehub also works, but for the purposes of this guide I will be using Bitstamp as the example because it's the one I have experience with and have tested to work. You will also need a Phone. Special thanks to @RobertHarpool for presenting the idea and pointing me in the general direction in the first place. This is assuming you either don't want to use Uphold or can't for whatever reason. I finally went through the trouble a few nights ago but never came back here to update the post and write the guide. The "cashing out" will be done using the XRPL's built in DEX. Sounds complicated but it's very, very simple and I will lay down the instructions step by step so you can do it. 1. Download the app " Xumm - your xrp wallet". This can be done in your phone whether you are on iOS or Android. Use your respective operating system's app store to download it. This guide will be assuming you're on your phone, because it's convenient and u take it with u everywhere. 2. Follow the instructions and read thoroughly everything that the XUMM app takes you through. I suggest making a new account as opposed to importing one, for simplicity's sake. It also adds a layer of redundancy/safety since you will have an extra stash for your assets. 3. The last step on the XUMM setup when creating a new account is to write down your "secret numbers". This will be displayed on the app for you to write down (offline!) and keep it stored safely. The secret numbers are 8 rows labeled A through H and contain 6 digits each. I highly encourage you to write it down in more than once paper and hide the different copies in different locations, two should be enough. You could type it out and print it instead if you're afraid of the ink either getting wet for some reason or smudging and becoming illegible. If you do so, I'd recommend you do so in an offline machine that never goes online and also use a printer that never goes online. You never know. Once you write them down, you will be asked to enter them to confirm you copied them correctly. 4. After you write down the secret keys I believe you get to create and name your account, do that and go to the next step. 5. You will now be able to fund your account. If the screen is not already there, tap on "Home". Since your account isn't funded, there should be a message that says ur acc is empty and you can tap on it to get the public address so you can send your funds to that address. You can simply tap on the "copy" function and then E-mail it to yourself if you access the exchanges through a computer. If you access the exchanges through your phone, then voila, you already have the public address copied and ready to be pasted. 6. Ok now that you have your recipient public address copied, go to wherever it is you have XRP stored (Wallet, exchange, etc) I will use Coinbase as an example. Login to Coinbase, click on Portfolio and then click on your XRP. On the right hand side you will see the option to send or receive, and send should be pre-selected. If it's not, click on send. Where it says "To", click on that and then paste the public address you copied from your XUMM account. You will leave the XRP tag empty because it's not necessary. The minimum amount you can send is 20 XRP because that's what's needed to activate your wallet. Of course you can send less for testing purposes, and if you feel unsure then by all means, send less. Once you confirm you did it correctlly and receive the XRP and it's reflected on your XUMM app (it should take seconds), then you can go ahead and send the remainder to activate the wallet and some extra to do a test sell with. 7. Ok, your XUMM wallet is now funded with some XRP, now what? How do I get USD for this? Well, in your home page, under the XRP balance that has the Send and Request buttons under it, under THAT you should see something that says "Other tokens" and a little further right of that there's a button that says "+ Add". Tap on it and you should see two columns. The one on the left says Exchanges and the one on the right says Tokens. You're interested on the one on the left. Tap on Bitstamp and it will now appear on your homepage under the "Other tokens" section as "US Dollar, Bitstamp USD" These are Bitstamp USD IOU's which is what you will be trading your XRP for. 8. Ok, now tap on the "US Dollar Bitstamp USD" and a window will pop up with two buttons: Send and Exchange. Tap on Exchange, enter the amount of XRP you wish to sell and then tap on Exchange in the bottom. Voila! You will now have a balance on the right side next to the Bitstamp USD showing how much you have. 9. Ok now it's time for the juicy part. Log in to your Bitstamp account, click on deposit, and on the left click on "IOU (BTC,USD" and you will get a screen with a QR code to scan and You'll also see the public address and destination tag in case you have to enter it manually. 10. On your XUMM app, tap once again on the "US Dollar Bitstamp USD" and then tap on Send. A screen will pop up where you enter the amount and then tap on "Next". This is where you tap on the square looking thing which is for scanning QR codes and scan the QR code on ur bitstamp acc. You should now see a box under "Search results" that says Bitstamp (and Bithomp to the right of it in smaller text) and your Bitstamp public address should be typed in automatically. Tap on "Next" and the next screen will say "This address requires a Destination Tag". Scan the QR code or enter it manually if the scanner doesn't work for whatever reason (It doesn't work when I try it, so I assume the destination tag just isn't there). You might have to write it down in your notes and then copy it. MAKE SURE YOU WRITE DOWN THE DESTINATION TAG PROPERLY. Once done hit Next until you're done. 11. Congrats! You have successfully cashed in XRP for USD through the XRPL! Give it a few moments to transact and then click on "Account" on Bitstamp and you should now see the USD from the transaction be reflected in your balance. If you have any further doubts or need help, don't hesitate to post in this thread and I will do my best to help (and maybe other members might even chime in before me). This forum is full of very knowledgeable and nice people

  6. I'm sure Ripple will win the "utility" case. While this case continues, we will support Ripple company to the end! I think it is a matter of principle to support Ripple in this case, not only as XRP holders but also as people who believed in IoV. But it would be naive to think that the main argument making up this case is "security vs utility". What we understand from this case file is that Ripple executives have not been transparent enough with the community over the years. This transparency was not only a liability to the SEC, but something that had to be provided to us. That's why we, as a community, have things to ask(demand?). I also know that all Ripple executives are respectable people and they will respond to our requests in some way. In my opinion, our ask(demands?) should be as follows. The XRP addresses of all Ripple execs must be shared publicly. While we can know how much Jed sold on what date, we have no information on the status of BG or CL. Ripple should notify us of XRP sales as soon as the sales occur, not after sales (not Quarterly reports). We must definitely inform about the average price of this sale. Ripple should definitely put a lock-up period in its sales to major institutes. Or by some other mechanism it should stop institutes from "dumping" xrp in public markets. Even if Ripple's previous sales are accepted as "security" sales by the SEC, it should pay whatever the penalty is and save us (the xrp community) from this trouble. If Ripple as a company will sell any XRP before or after the big announcements, it should do so within a mechanism that the community can follow. Do not describe the above points as an anarchist rebellion against Ripple. I personally own a larger XRP case than average holders. I think these are essential only to bring this business to a better future and to eliminate the "confidence" crisis we are experiencing. If anyone wants to add more items, you can add them too. Hope our concerns are welcomed. @garlichouse @Julian_Williams @JASCoder

  19. 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.
  20. 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?

  24. 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
