So it started as a bit of wishful thinking, a hunch even, but now I think it is real. Brad meant something with his marathon comment, and I believe it was almost literal. The end of the first fortnight of 2018 and we get a partnership announcement out of the blue for Moneygram. Then just after the announcement, Brad drops this banger: He states that MG is "one step in a marathon" A marathon is 41km in Australia, but for the US a marathon is 26 miles. There are 52 weeks win a year, meaning there are 26 fortnights in a year. Is Brad going to release a partnership and/or big announcement every fortnight ? 26 announcements for 26 miles? WELL step forward to today, exactly a fortnight from the last announcement: UPDATE: So now, exactly two weeks (and I'm talking 1 hour variance) after the IDT and MercuruFX announcement, this happens. https://ripple.com/insights/lianlian-pay-joins-ripplenet-provide-faster-payments-china/ We parter with one of the leading payments providers in China! This snowball is rolling, and it's moving fast!! It's getting harder to tell me this is too speculative Let's see if I'm right again in a fortnight! Update 2 (step 4 of 26): Like clockwork and right on schedule, Ripple mark step four of the marathon. In the form of FIVE new RippleNet partners who will make use of xCurrent and xVia technologies. Who else is looking forward to steps five through 26? Update 3 (step 5 of 26) Another fortnight has passed and another awesome piece of news has come out! This time in the form of a Ripple powered mobile app! This is a huge step and will be using RippleNet to facilitate on demand domestic payments. This goes to show that even though Ripple are targeting cross-border payments; banks around the world are interested in using their tech for domestic ones too. That's another use case (*cough* bye bye Stellar *cough*) and another big step in the marathon! Can't wait to see what's next. Side note: We also had Cory Johnson from Bloomberg TV come on as Chief Market Strategist. Let's have some dried berries and a swish of water; then keep on running towards that next checkpoint in the marathon! See you next fortnight. Hmmm Just something to think about. -retry
