  2. I would like to invite you to read my latest blog post in the XRP Community Blog. https://xrpcommunity.blog/el-salvador-surfing-the-iov/ I am originally from El Salvador, an economy where remittances stack up to nearly 20% of its GDP. I haven't lived there for about 6 years and every time I have to send funds back home, I wish I could do it by sending XRP. Unfortunately digital assets are still not regulated there despite the huge impact these would have in the national economy. The possibility of allowing additional income for remittance recipient families in my country and the rest of the developing world is the #1 reason why I want XRP and the Internet of Value to succeed. Thank you in advance for your time!
  3. The Very Beginning Shift/Shift Payments Since 2014, Ripple has been experimenting on multiple projects developing a debit card that would allow owners to easily spend their digital currencies. It first began as a joint effort along side Shift Payments to create the "Shift Card". Which the project was focused on https://ripple.com/insights/a-debit-card-powered-by-ripple/ The prototype card was integrated with both Coinbase and Ripple accounts at one point with the partners wanting to integrate the card with loyalty point programs and regular bank accounts in the future. Ripple was planned to be used for the settlement protocol for payment between fiat currencies, digital currencies, mobile minutes, etc. And in further innovation, https://techcrunch.com/2014/08/12/shift-is-developing-a-debit-card-that-lets-you-spend-digital-currency-loyalty-points-and-regular-money/ It would later be released that Shift Payments, now Shift, was introducing a VISA backed Bitcoin debit card. Suggesting the probability Ripple had been introduced to VISA long ago.... https://techcrunch.com/2015/11/20/coinbase-partners-with-shift-payments-to-issue-bitcoin-debit-card/ Unfortunately nothing came from it and the test wallets they used for the pilots have become dormant for several years. (although the main wallet has 375k XRP just sitting there) https://bithomp.com/explorer/rKbtT6j1JGjFnwkUp2Na1W8XE5Z79VsMYi https://bithomp.com/explorer/rpfFnyaChjzB8RNfT6VDYioFWfjghYXnvb Shift appears to have moved on but a possible explanation as to why nothing arose from it might be how cryptocurrencies were not favorably perceived in 2014. However one of the co-founders of Shift, Meg Nakamura added that https://techcrunch.com/2014/08/12/shift-is-developing-a-debit-card-that-lets-you-spend-digital-currency-loyalty-points-and-regular-money/ Whether they ever use Ripple or not in the future is up for debate but one of Shift's co-founders was Gregg Kidd, the chief risk officer at Ripple during the time. Interesting enough both founded Hard + Yaka, a fund that makes early round investments in exchange space startups. Previous investments? Global ID, Gatehub, Ripple, Coinbase, Shift, Bitso (expect XRPL to run thru it), ShapeShift and to our next topic of conversation.....Marqeta. http://hardyaka.com/ Marqeta Marqeta is an open API payment card issuing platform that has been enabling businesses to process credit and debit card payments. Marqeta has been establishing itself as a big company that has attracted notable clients and investors to utilize it's technology. Facebook and Oink are example of clients while this past July, VISA made a strategic investment in the company and formed a partnership to drive further innovations in commercial and consumer payments globally. https://techcrunch.com/2017/07/26/visa-marqeta-25m/ http://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20170726005359/en/Visa-Marqeta-Form-Global-Partnership-Drive-New https://www.pymnts.com/news/partnerships-acquisitions/2017/visa-and-marqeta-partner-to-transform-global-card-issuance/ https://techcrunch.com/2013/05/16/powering-the-facebook-card-marqeta-raises-14m-from-greylock-israel-to-recreate-the-starbucks-loyalty-card-for-merchants/ Marqeta is compatible with the Discover, MasterCard, and VISA networks. https://www.marqeta.com/api/docs/VhypzxwAANwA_Vgx/cards The CEO of Marqeta, Jason Gardner, has been very vocal and supportive of blockchain technology and it's possible applications. adding, It was also revealed in January 2016 that Marqeta had been working with Ripple on a defunct debit card product that would allow users to spend cryptocurrencies at traditional points of sale. https://www.coindesk.com/marqeta-ceo-bitcoin-blockchain-tech/ With the test wallets to prove this collaboration, https://bithomp.com/explorer/rwEFnxs7GQsHXBG9ARZNYcmBkZc81zphMC https://bithomp.com/explorer/rwYx6Mp1n8yMbGN9K4MkHsSNvibK4MPjQF (being really active last year and even doing fiat exchanges between USD and JPY) Only time will tell where this collaboration will lead to but it's safe to say that Ripple has really positioned itself well in regards to VISA and Mastercard. And one other interesting development has been Marqeta's new partnership with Ali Pay. https://www.finextra.com/pressarticle/71286/alipay-joins-with-marqeta-for-us-payments-play https://paymentweek.com/2017-10-27-alipay-marqeta-team-alipays-payment-processing-ambition/ http://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20171020005664/en/Alipay-Taps-Marqeta-Expedite-Payment-Acceptance-Retail One notable thing did occur (and is accelerating as we speak) this past March, Ripple introduced Payments Channels into the RCL/XRPL and ILP. Thus allowing the XRP Ledger to scale, https://ripple.com/insights/ripple-continues-to-bring-internet-of-value-to-life-new-features-increase-transaction-throughput-to-same-level-as-visa/ https://www.cryptocoinsnews.com/ripple-claims-transaction-thoroughput-now/ The network has now scaled enough to sustain the amount of transactions the VISA network sustains. One last note, https://www.finextra.com/newsarticle/31227/wirex-and-sbi-holdings-team-on-japan-cryptocurrency-payments-card AirWallex Ripple partners with ties to major credit card issuers don't end there. AirWallex is an international payments startup that is based in Australia that in October, it's partnership with Ripple became publicly disclosed. https://ripple.com/ripple_press/ripples-blockchain-network-now-100-strong/ This past May, AirWallex held a Series A Round in which it raised $13 million dollars in funds for the company. These investors included MasterCard, Gobi Ventures/Partners which is one of Alibaba's investment managers, and Tencent leading the investment round. Tencent's WeChat has roughly 980 million monthly users, with users sending about $1.2 trillion in mobile payments in 2016. Along with mobile payments in China, Tencent wants to expand WeChat Pay usage to other regions including South Africa, Philippines, and Malaysia. https://bankinnovation.net/2017/04/alipay-wechat-processed-3-trillion-in-2016/ http://news.abs-cbn.com/business/11/22/17/wechat-pay-launches-in-philippines-with-asia-united-bank http://www.marketing-interactive.com/tencent-confirms-plans-to-launch-wechat-pay-in-malaysia/ http://blog.wechat.com/2015/11/25/south-africa-launches-wechat-wallet-the-first-country-officially-outside-china/ And there is one more region that AirWallex is targeting thru a formation of a partnership this past week, Europe. On December 1, AirWallex announced a partnership with Railsbank to enable AirWallex also became Railsbank's Airwallex’s VP of Europe Expansion, Michael Stachowiak speaking on the partnership shared, https://www.finextra.com/pressarticle/71788/airwallex-joins-railsbank-platform https://www.pymnts.com/news/b2b-payments/2017/airwallex-railsbank-international-payments-partnership/ Along with it's partnership with AirWallex, the previous day Railsbank was one of eleven companies to be chosen by MasterCard to be included in it's Start Path program. With Railsbank being chosen for it's ability to give companies access to global banking networks thru APIs. https://www.finextra.com/pressarticle/71779/latest-mastercard-start-path-program-includes-blockchain-digital-identity-and-healthcare-fintechs Want to know what happened on November 30? (same day of Railsbank and MasterCard's annoucement) The European Central Bank hosted a digital transformation conference that Ripple was invited to. https://www.ecb.europa.eu/pub/conferences/shared/pdf/20171130_digital_transformation_conf/Conference_brochure_20171130.pdf A panel which consisted of Banca Sella, the Central Bank of Netherlands, PayPal, and Ripple was held to speak on the disruptive potential of fintech innovations for the retail payments ecosystem. Want to know what happened on December 1? (same day as AirWallex and Railsbank's partnership) Brad gave us a nice tweet The VISA and MasterCard connections are there and more subtle Alibaba and Tencent connections to Ripple are surfacing.

  8. Good morning all! Have you recently heard about Ripple? Are you deciding if you should invest some of your hard-earned money in XRP? Or have you been around for many years, holding and enjoying the recent price rises? Whoever you are and where ever you're from, it is important to keep up-to-date and know exactly what you're investing in so you can make sound decisions, and not be swept away in the feverish torrents of hype that do so often engulf the crypto space. So I will be posting a few videos and links here from around this wonderful forum, Youtube, and various other places around the interweb so good folk like to can refresh your knowledge on all things Ripple. At the end, there will be an exam, and if you fail that exam @karlos will ban you from the internet, there may even be a few fun little quiz questions you can ask your soon-to-be-estranged friends around the dinner table at Christmas, or yourself at 4 o'clock in the morning as you sit rocking in front of your screen watching charts. Because who ever said crypto wasn't a healthy social experience!? So without further ado, pull up your socks, pour an alcopop and put down your fidget spinner, because I have just the video for you -- "Ripple Tech Talk: Understanding Consensus (Mar 2015)" by in-house genius @JoelKatz (Length: ~60 mins; Difficulty: 3/5; Importance: High)

  11. I have submitted this question to Coinbase support 3 times since it was announced that XRP was to be added to Coinbase (except for NY residents) and all I get is a generic computer generated response. But.... Does any one have any information when/if XRP will ever be added to Coinbase for NY customers? Bitstamp offers XRP pairs in NY, but I was looking for something domestic to cash out eventually, considering Bittrex was also denied in NY. I guess I'm not seeing why Ripple Labs has a Bitlicense, Coinbase has a Bitlicense, but yet no XRP for NY. I'm guessing personal preference not to list it? Or some other major reason why they are keeping it off?
  12. When I first got in, the directions that I followed was buying BTC from Coinbase, transferring to Binance, trading to XRP and then storing away. The only changes that I've made since then is buying Ethereum from Coinbase, transferring it to GDAX, then Binance and then offloading. Is there a better method for purchasing XRP in the states?

  14. Hey guys, As of today (October 7, 2018), Ripple Labs, Inc. has filed 53 trademarks in the United States, 48 of which are considered "live" whereas 5 of the 53 trademarks have been "abandoned" by the company. Ripple Labs, Inc. has quite the intellectual property portfolio, and it seems to be growing too (e.g., the company has filed three (3) trademarks in 2018). And we have seen at least two (2) lawsuits in which Ripple (the company) has sued in order to protect their intellectual property (exactly what you want to see from a well ran company). My intent with this post today is simply to raise some criticism, hopefully constructive, encouraging this community to debate one (1) of the U.S. trademarks still considered "live" and being protected by Ripple (the company) - the trademark for "XRP." My question is why not abandon this "XRP" trademark? A trademark is a symbol, word, group of words, name, and/or a design that is legally registered or established by use as representing a company or a product/service. Think of a brand name. Although trademark registration is not mandatory, one files for trademark protection in order to establish the presumption of ownership, to establish the right to use the mark on or in the connection with goods/services, and/or to file a trademark infringement lawsuit in U.S. federal court to obtain monetary remedies, including profits, damages, costs, etc. Ripple (the company) has an active or "live" trademark for "XRP" (see picture below). The "XRP" trademark was filed for protection with the US Patent and Trademark Office back in 2013 by OpenCoin, Inc. You can see the description of the goods and services and other information from the trademark in the picture attached to this post. A lot has happened in five (5) years since this "XRP" trademark was filed for protection by OpenCoin, and we all get that. However, XRP (digital asset/cryptocurrency) is independent from Ripple (the company). We have heard this time and time again from management. To my knowledge, and according to my research, no one owns the trademark for "USD" or "BTC" (although there are several trademarks from multiple companies using "USD" and "BTC" for other products/services, and the USPTO or U.S. Trademark office allows for that). Abandoned trademarks (by Ripple Labs, Inc.): 1) "Interledger" (abandoned in August, 2017) 2) "Ripple Labs" (abandoned in September, 2016)* 3) "Ripple Labs" (abandoned in September, 2016)* 4) "Ripple Communications" (abandoned in June, 2014) 5) "Rippln" (abandoned in January, 2015) *"Ripple Labs" is still bring protected by a different trademark Last point. See the list of abandoned trademarks above. These five (5) marks were all abandoned by Ripple (the company). For example, we all know that Ripple (the company) invented Interledger, the open protocol suite for sending payments across different ledgers. Ripple (the company) filed for trademark protection on "Interledger" in October 2016 and then abandoned the same trademark in August 2017. We all know that Interledger W3C Community Group is now developing Interledger, a group of hundreds of companies and individual contributors. It is decentralized (no one owns it). XRP is also decentralized. No one, including a company, should be able to trademark "XRP" and establish the presumption of ownership over the three letters "XRP" in the context of financial services. The trademark should be open and in the public domain, and the person (or company) who created the trademark five (5) years ago should no longer benefit from that original filing. Thoughts? Let's discuss.

  20. What is CasinCoin (CSC)? Taken from CSC’s official website (CasinoCoin.org) , CasinoCoin is: “An open source, peer-to-peer, cryptocurrency specifically designed for the regulated online gambling industry.” CSC are in partnership with the Isle of Man government and have offices in both Malta and the Isle of Man. What are the problems facing the regulated gambling industry. For the operator –compliance with regulatory headaches/legislation such as Know Your Customer and the Anti Money Laundering regulations. For example, William Hill – one of the UK’s largest licenced operators were fined £6.2m in February 2018, by the Gambling Commission for lax controls. In June 2018, 32 Red, a licensed British operator, were fined £2m for failing to protect a problem gambler. Secondly, for the player - slow transactions typical of the modern day banking world. Players moving fiat from bank account to operator and than back to bank account and onto another operator can take several days. Finally, both the operator and player can face lengthy delay whilst ID checks are made and documents verified How does CSC solve these problems? The centerpiece of CSC’s solution is the BRM – the Bank Roll Manager . This is an App that has will allow the users to seamlessly transfer CSC between the operator, the player’s wallet and onto another operator in seconds whilst also allowing completion of the KYC checks. CSC have partnered with Jumio, who are responsible for verifying the ID for Coinbase users. Players take a photo of their ID, upload it to the BRM. Jumio then verify the ID, and the player is all set to play at ANY of the operators registered in the BRM, with NO FURTHER SEPARATE ID CHECKS and re-verification. This is a massive win for the operator as they have now effectively outsourced a key element of their regulatory compliance requirements. So…no more fines. Using a modified code of Ripple, millions of CSC can be transacted in under 3 seconds. So…no more waiting on bank clearing timescales with a transaction cost of less than a penny. What about the team behind CSC? Who are they? This for me is where CSC really shines. The guy at the top is John Cadwell – Director of Advocacy, whose previous position include Editor in Chief for Pokernews.com and had a senior marketing role for Poker Stars. Ashish Tawakley – Chief Commerical Officer – ex Betfair ( who are in partnership with Paddy Power, a leading UK licensed operator.) Duncan Cameron - Technical Director - Duncan managed the building and launch of the PokerStars Mobile App – PS Mobile – which was responsible for the company receiving eGaming Review’s ‘Mobile Operator of the Year’ award. The advisory board reads like a who’s who of the gambling industry, with names such as: Lydia Barbera – “Head of Innovation” at Microgaming. based in the Isle of Man. Lydia was recently voted one of the ten most influential women in the online gaming industry. Microgaming developed the world’s first true online casino software in 1994 and the first mobile casino software in 2004. Microgaming is also the supplier of more than 700 world leading gaming brands such as Bet365, LeoVegas, 188 bet and Casumo. Draftkings Jeffrey Haas – Chief International Officer for Draft Kings, who are a billion dollar company. Kindred Group Britt Boeskov - Kindred Group have 1.5 million players in the gamining/gambling industry. Gamesys Lee Fenton – CEO. Gamesys have over 25 million players, 1000 employees, with some of the brands being Jackpot Joy, Virgin Games and Virgin Casino So, what about landbased Casinos? CSC were approached earlier this year by a Casino supplier to the Las Vegas Casinos. John Cadwell, of the CasinoCoin foundation was in Vegas recently in discussions surrounding this. Examples of CSC use in landbased Casinos could be as follows: Administration system for all bets CSC could integrate with the scan devices on slots Poker chips with CSC integrated How will the player go about converting their fiat into CSC? This is all done within the BRM. The player buys CSC from the operator who has their own supply of CSC bought from an exchange. So, a player will always deposit in CSC, gamble in CSC, win in CSC and withdraw in CSC. Would the volatility of the price of CSC be an issue? "There is no conversion happening on the operator platform. They could do that, it just wouldn’t make much sense. Some Casinos already using some tokenized system. Meaning you deposit 100USD, you get 100 tokens and a spin costs you x tokens or you place tokens on a table. At the end of the day, it doesn’t matter which currency you gamble in. It only comes to play when cashing in and cashing out. The operator needs to have a bankroll in CSC. Otherwise, they wouldn’t be able to cash you out. Taking the risk of not having it and buying it on the market if you need it would be a risk. It’s the same for current casinos allowing you to gamble in crypto. They need to have a bankroll. Some might not have it and you would never know till someone wins big.” (Credit to Daniel Keller from the CSC Foundation who explains this better than I ever could) Can you give me a brief history of CSC? CasinoCoin started in 2013, and was taken over in August 2017 by Double C Foundation. A coin swap was undertaken increasing the supply from 40 million to 40 billion. What exchanges is CSC listed on? Right now, STEX, Nlexch and NUEX. CSC are in discussions with major exchanges, and with Binance being just down the road in Malta, this is a distinct possibility. CSC did not do an ICO and the Foundation is a Not For Profit Organisation ( Hence do not have hundreds of thousands at their disposal necessary for a major listing fee) Negotiations are ongoing with major exchanges and an announcement is likely to come soon. Also note, that the operators will have to buy their CSC direct from the exchanges like every one else, and not direct from the Foundation. Why have I not heard of CSC before? Mainly because CSC are purely focused on developing a working product and building the relationships with operators/partners. The Foundation have a ‘zero hype” policy and will only make an announcement when they have something to announce. No marketing has yet been undertaken and the great thing is with CSC, once the marketing switch is flipped, the operators CSC have partnered up with, will also be doing their own marketing to their customer base. Where are CSC up to right now? The tech has been developed, i.e the BRM, and this is with the Maltese Gaming Authority, pending approval following the sandbox testing. (The BRM is ready for testing. The operator has submitted the application. Just waiting on the MGA.) For the sandbox testing, CSC have partnered with an as yet unnamed operator. Additionally, it is worthy of note that the sandbox testing was most likely delayed due to Malta progressing with legislation written specifically for Crypto. The Malta Digital Innovation Authority, should oversee all crypto related items for the government. CSC wallets are available for download for Windows, OSX and Linux. The CSC team are also currently working on nano ledger integration. What’s the global market size of the gambling industry? Total gambling industry revenues are predicted to be 635 Billion USD in 2022. Total gaming industry revenue is predicted to be 128 billion USD in 2020 CSC in a nutshell CSC is a payment solution for the online (and potentially landbased) gambling industry powered by a modified version of the Ripple code. CSC are in partnership with an as yet unnamed operator. Price will be driven primarily by use and utility with speculation being secondary. CasinoCoin has a working product ready for release. CSC have close connections with the gambling industry with ex high ranking individuals from Poker Stars. CasinoCoin has a billionaire behind it.

  22. A lot of things are moving in the XRP/Ripple Universe. Loads of positives. But it does not match the movement of XRP in the Market. It´s stuck and been for long, and the answer is not the s.c. Crypto Winter, or Bear Market. Other DA´s move, but XRP is stuck in Limbo. I have no answers, that is why I am asking.
  23. Hi, Ripplenet technology can be used for cross-border payments. For example I can transfer my pounds into Peso using Ripplenet. Briefly use case is I have GBP and my counterparty receives Peso in Mexico. That's ok. Commercial banks have such service which help their customers to quote and buy foreign currencies. Usually it is rather expensive. Why is it so expensive? Is it possible to replace the current banking process with a cheaper solution? I don't mean an alternative solution like Revolut, but inside a bank using Ripplenet. Theoretical question: Is there any solution to buy cheaply Peso in UK using Ripplenet? If not possible then is there any development on XRP ledger which is about to solve this problem? XRP Ledger has On-Ledger Decentralized Exchange feature which might solve this problem, but AFAIK it is not still not used. Thanks, jlr
