I thought it necessary to address a pervasive misconception that I've noticed in multiple threads. It's an annoying and pervasive rumor, and it goes something like this: XRP Potential Investor: "I heard that Ripple (the company) wants a low price for XRP because banks don't like volatility or high prices for digital assets." XRPChat Member: "But that's not true! Ripple has posted many times about how XRP is central to their own financial well-being and self-interest. It doesn't make any logical sense. And they have volatility-lessening services in place for banks, according to Stefan Thomas." (source: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/ripple-and-xrp-are-more-stable-than-you-think_us_591cb3bee4b0b28a33f62915) How You Can Counter the FUD Does Ripple Really Want a High Price for XRP? Absolutely. The mathematics are straight-forward for them. In addition to promoting the usage of volatility-lessening services for banks during intermediary trades involving XRP, the higher the price of XRP is, the cheaper the cost of the trade for the Financial Institution. You heard me right, so let me repeat it again: The higher the price of XRP, the cheaper the transaction cost! When we talk with new potential investors in XRP, its important that we all carry this message consistently and clearly to counter the FUD out there... wherever it is - Reddit, Facebook, Twitter, XRPChat itself, or in person. If we keep at it, the message will eventually get through about XRP! By the way: For those interested or who haven't read it yet, in "Part 1" of this thread, I talked about the owner and original employee's XRP personal holdings, the XRP lockup, and some other topics. That thread can be found here:
