  1. Looking for a summary of the SWELL Conference + the latest news about XRP? I've got you covered! SWELL was a tour-d-force for Ripple; you won't want to miss my TL:DR breakdowns of each session in this blog. I provided my own personal take on each of the sessions, including the "800 Pound Gorilla" panel discussion at the end. This latest blog also covers the latest news in crypto, and Ripple & XRP as well, including what to expect from the Malta conference, and news that SmartStream piloted Ripple tech. Coinswitch adds a custom crypto switch page for XRP fans, and Bitrue announces their new mobile application. I hope you enjoy the read & please leave any feedback below. Also, feel free to share my blog with anybody you'd like - and also feel free to re-post on any other social media platform you wish - and thank you for doing so!

  2. I now class myself as a vaguely experienced hodler. Usually I hide behind other people's threads and comment from time to time. Not for a while though - what's the point in reading stuff which is mainly downbeat and negative? I have experienced a load of emotions since I came on board in 2017, but I've never waivered from my belief that XRP will become a success. If it doesn't then I am prepared to take a 100% loss. There's no doubt that this recent pump has brought a load of new investors on board in anticipation of Xrapid going live and Swell's potential announcements.There will be lots of positive news at Swell. However, the whales are circling and the likehood short term is the price dips considerably unless there's an announcement that Xrapid has released. Those who have ridden the XRP train for the last 2 weeks, you have until Sunday to disembark. Those with cojones will be rewarded substantially given time. Mine have "SWELLED" considerably since last year.
  3. It's time! SWELL is about to start, and I cover all the news leading up to the conference. For those that want a detailed explanation of Multi-Hop, it's in there! A lot has happened in the past week, and I hit on all the major points, including Ripple's testimony at the Library of Congress, the hiring of a lobbying firm, the latest about the Japanese Money Tap application, and Ripple's new philanthropic endeavor. In addition, I cover XRP Community developments as well, including a new tool for Codius hosts and the usage of XRP for a Belize-based ForEx platform. I hope you enjoy this latest blog entry & please leave any feedback below. Feel Free to share my blog with a friend or on any other platform you wish - and thank you for doing so!

  4. The journey may have been a thousand miles, but the destination is now clear for XRP. Lots Happening! As executives from Ripple continue to prompt governments - both in the US and in Japan - for regulatory clarity, they have not stopped expanding the RippleNet network or its list of clients. Chris Larsen announces that Ripple has signed over 100 clients to production contracts, and Ryan Zagone, Brad Garlinghouse, and Cory Johnson all make high-profile public appearances, emphasizing similar points in unison. ACI Worldwide, the US-based payments giant, mentions Ripple technology in a recent interview, and the Japanese Banking Consortium readies MoneyTap for initial release. Ripple also settles its lawsuit with R3 and provides further updates to the upcoming SWELL Conference, which is now only two weeks away! And in Coil news, an independent developer releases a step-by-step guide for how Wix website owners can sign up for web monetization. Winding things up, WietseWind reveals plans to help people monetize their own extra, home-generated electricity, and a new Python library to access the XRP Library is released by a community developer.

  7. Are you wondering what impact Turkey is having on Crypto? What about the ???? new ICO-funded exchanges due to open in August that support XRP?

  8. How can XRP crypto investors help mainstream financial markets - and those others already in crypto - move past current limitations into the future? I give my take on this topic in today's blog, and spend some time covering the biggest XRP news items as well. This includes news from some of the biggest companies that build on XRP, including Ripple, Coil, and SBI, as well as two XRP Community members. I guarantee that the average crypto investor - and even those that follow XRP - have had a hard time keeping up with all the latest information; there's a lot to cover, but I did my best to touch on the most impactful items. Hope you enjoy today's latest edition. Please feel free to share my blog with a friend - or on any other platform or social media - and thank you for doing so!

  10. There's a LOT going on in crypto as we speak, and the two Congressional hearings were just a sample. I analyze the testimony provided to Congress in both of those important hearings. In addition, SBI Virtual Currencies has gone live now for all Japanese users, marking an important milestone. SBI VC will have an enormous impact on sustained volume levels for XRP. Two recent conferences featured Ripple representatives, and Ripple has begun organizing for the next SWELL Conference! Last but not least, I make the case that the XRP Community should make more than a token effort to visibly and materially support businesses that in turn support XRP. While large Silicon Valley players address the high-profile use cases for XRP, the XRP Community can make significant inroads supporting retail businesses. I hope you enjoy this latest blog.

  11. In today's blog, the retrospective of XRP and Ripple finishes with a closer look at our prior year, 2017. We've come a long way, and 2017 demonstrates that in spades. This blog will cover key code updates for XRP, the controv ersial topic of anonymous payments, community promotions, and XRP's own version of the "Bitcoin Pizza Guy," which is known more as the "XRP Jacket Guy." (He knows who he is!) And for those of you that are new, I wax nostalgic about the old RippleTrade wallet - something only fellow XRP veterans will appreciate. No retelling of 2017 for Ripple and XRP would be complete without discussing SWELL and the Central Bank Summit on Blockchain hosted by Ripple.

  12. Hi @miguel, @JoelKatz, and others, Even though there were some members of the community who weren’t overly excited about Ripple’s Swell in 2017 the connections Ripple was able to make clearly have paid dividends. In 2018 SWIFT’S Sibos will be taking place in Sydney... has there been any word as to what Ripple will be doing in regards to Swell in 2018? Was this going to be an annual event?

    When did you get into XRP?

    Just trying to get a gage for the community. Where you pre-swell conference or post? Forgive me if something like this has already been posted. Cheers!
  14. XRP has now reached an adoption point that every fintech startup dreams about - official confirmation of its product's measurable value to business and individuals. With Cuallix's formal confirmation of XRP's cost savings two days ago, it's clear that XRP's path is pointed upwards; when will it take the #1 spot? It's up to the market, but I provide my opinion on what this means for Ripple and the industry. Hope you enjoy the read! Please leave any feedback below.

  15. It was noted from JoelKatz and Brad Garlinghouse about the enormous amount of interest received from potential clients during SWELL-- how many new clients/partners do you think they snatched up after this event? Of course it's all speculation at this point, but sometimes a little speculation is fun. Oh and of course, to the haters, naysayers, get-rich-quick folks, fickle traders and investors, and shamans accurately predicting XRP's price movements after the fact:

    Photos from SWELL

    The picture of the venue is an absolute joke... seeing that alone has me worried about this event. Wow.
  17. https://www.gtreview.com/news/fintech/ripple-ceo-defends-hijacking-sibos-with-blockchain-event/ Interesting statement, so seems the rumours about china going live soon are true and they indeed have a local partner in the works quite soon. Lets see which partner they will use, I still are a bit skeptical about the whole Alipay speculation. Exciting times
  18. When it comes to crypto, XRP is the premier choice for future-proofing my investment, especially given the recent announcements by Ripple. In my latest blog entry, I discuss what I believe are the top five reasons to consider making XRP part of your portfolio. Hope you enjoy the read & please leave any feedback below.

    Top 3 Takeaways From Swell

    If you attended Swell in mid-October, one thing was clear: This was far from a typical banking event. The inviting atmosphere put attendees at ease, prompting them to speak candidly about the pain points associated with cross-border payments, and the obligation they have to improve the payment experience for their clients. https://ripple.com/insights/top-3-takeaways-swell/
  20. While their was undoubtedly a lot of good that came out of SWELL (I think everyone would be shocked if a bunch of great relationships/partnerships didn't transpire), it's pretty evident that a lot of people on the consumer side of things (for example, some in the XRP community) lost faith in Ripple and feel mislead. So much so that Brad Garlinghouse (CEO) had to hold an impromptu Q and A session the morning of the last day of the conference. That speaks volumes. We don't know the entire story or what went on behind the scenes (did something fall through at the last minute???), so I don't want to be too critical. However, this also isn't the first misstep by Ripple's marketing team, so I don't think we can write this off as a one-off event either. Whether you personally disagree with people critical of ripple or not is irrelevant. The bottom line is that this "miscommunication" had negative consequences and was entirely avoidable. Assuming no last minute catastrophe that we aren't aware of, EXPECTATIONS to the XRP community, and the crypto community in general, by Ripple's marketing team as well as CEO Brad Garlinghouse on Quora were not managed properly. Without insider knowledge, we don't know exactly why the miscommunication occurred. Let's look into a few possible reasons why. Please keep in mind these are simply possibilities. It could also be none of these. This is more-or-less just food for thought that serves to set-up the main point of this thread (the state of Ripple's marketing infrastructure): 1. The executives (Garlinghouse, etc.), while very strong on both the technology and sales front, place little importance on marketing. Hence, why their isn't a Chief Marketing Officer. 2. The marketing department is completely overloaded. Remember, they have to market from both a Business-to-business angle (e.g., banks) and a Business-to-consumer angle (e.g., the people on XRP chat, the people that invest in cryptos, etc.). 3. The marketing department lacks proper experience and know-how. To reiterate, I'm not making accusations. I don't know the answer(s). What I did do though is look through LinkedIn to get a better idea of Ripple's commitment to marketing. For the record, this was not an enjoyable task. I don't like having to pull out the microscope. However, let's not forget that a large part of Ripple's funding comes from us. Ripple sells XRP and we buy it. In the last quarter, Ripple sold $32.6 million worth of XRP into open markets. XRP holders are an integral part of Ripple's success. We are helping to pay for operations. We are helping to pay salaries. This is a mutually beneficial relationship. Because of this, I'd argue that it's our responsibility to ask Ripple hard questions like the below. If Ripple is the company we all think and hope it is, then hard questions shouldn't phase them. In fact, Ripple should be happy to have such dedicated, passionate followers. Finally, please remember that the questions below are based-off of data pulled from Linked In. I very well could be be missing some key information (I'd be very surprised if I'm not). I'd also ask that we remember that we don't know everything that happened behind the scenes. Because this is a sensitive subject, please be respectful in your comments. QUESTIONS (and remember, we're told Ripple has a multi-billion dollar "War Chest," so money shouldn't really be an issue) *Excluding designers, why does a company with offices on 4 continents only have around 8 employees dedicated to marketing? *How are only 8 employees supposed to execute marketing plans for both B2B (e.g., financial institutions) and B2C (e.g., crypto community)? *Why does Ripple not have a Chief Marketing Officer? Does the marketing department have a "voice" during Executive meetings? *Should it be a concern that no Ripple marketer has more than 10 or so years of experience? *Is it probable that a person with only 10 or so years experience (and no past experience leading a marketing department) can successfully lead the marketing efforts of a global corporation that seeks to revolutionize the multi-trillion dollar financial industry? Or, would Ripple be in a better position if someone with more global marketing experience as well as a distinguished track record were leading the marketing efforts? To sum it up, Ripple's technology, sales, etc. departments appear to be top-notch. However, Ripple's commitment to marketing appears to be lagging. If I simply have bad info from Linked In, I look forward to apologizing. I really hope this is the case. Once again, please be respectful with your responses. At the end of the day, we're all on the same team.
  21. After seeing everyone pretty mad about the "price drop" of XRP, I decided to see it from a different perspective and boy it is potentially huge. Just last night I read a comment from @JoelKatz regarding XRP which read “Any time the amount of XRP held by Ripple goes down, there is some dilution of XRP. If Ripple is releasing XRP in a way that doesn't produce direct revenue for Ripple, it would be because we believe the upside (in growing the network and incentivizing adoption) exceeds the downside (in dilution). Of course you can disagree with our calculations." Seems like everyone is disagreeing about SWELL being a success but I tend to differ. You see, SWELL was not an event directed to the small investors community but of something bigger which are the financial institutions who can benefit from Ripple's technology and also from its native asset $XRP. If we analyse the volume being sold/bought during SWELL you can see it was pretty huge and I'm positive that Ripple acquired the attention of various players in the financial sector enough for them to invest modest quantities to test out the ILP and XRP. Having said this and taking in consideration David's words, it's likely Ripple made some partnerships which will be announced during the next months and involve decent amounts of XRP sold. The escrow lockup hasn't been officially announced since they still are selling out XRP from their own stash. They still have 2 months to give out XRP for partnerships and I assume with the escrow-lockup announcement it will also have to re-estate how much XRP they're holding at the time of lockup. If you are still skeptical I suggest you to read the definition of stock dilution here: http://www.investopedia.com/terms/d/dilution.asp Ripple is the major XRP holder and whenever they sell part of their XRP, the price obviously goes down as more XRP goes out in circulation. What do you think about this theory? If you'd like to discuss it more I'm always available here or through twitter @R_Penacastro
  22. I think it is a matter of time and XRP will overcome this critical situation and will return to complete its journey to the moon, currently its price is ranging between 0.20 cents and 0.21 cents, and it’s the third largest currency in the world thanks to its market value, I remain convinced that it is fantastic and I support it. https://www.ripplecoinnews.com/the-swell-conference-in-canada-ignored-the-xrp-contrary-to-our-positive-expectations
  23. Now that the SWELL conference is complete, it's good to look back and analyze it objectively from a couple different standpoints to truly understand its impact. This blog entry covers my take on the SWELL conference, the latest Ripple and XRP news, and breaks it down for an ordinary XRP investor. Hope you enjoy, and please leave any feedback below!
