  1. There's been numerous threads about utility based analysis of how high XRP price could rise. Here is one example: https://www.xrpchat.com/topic/18706-xrp-market-potential-value/ I've created this thread to throw out what I consider to be a good "starting point" for utility-based analysis. Personally, I struggle with the finer-grained differences between the potential markets: B2B (Business to business) P2P (Peer to peer or person to person) P2B (person to business) Once we zero in on one of these three categories, we can then further categorize the markets and get some historical numbers to plug in. For example, within the category of "P2P" are remittances across borders such as what MoneyGram handles along with Mercury FX, Flash FX, IDT, and Cuallix. Also American Express and Western Union now! I wanted to create this specific topic as a stand-alone thread before I then take the number and extrapolate to use it in a utility-based analysis of XRP price. In the past, I've used old SWIFT numbers. I've seen other authors manage to get their hands on other numbers as well, but I'm not sure if some of those overlap or should be considered separate from each other. For example, is the CHIPs system accounted for in the SWIFT number? I don't think so, but I'm not sure. We'd need somebody 'from the industry' to comment on some of the numbers that would comprise our starting point for utility-based estimation of XRP price. Let me know if you feel strongly one way or the other, or are from the industry and have some valuable sources of statistics to contribute. Thank you!

  3. https://stocksgazette.com/2018/02/17/after-all-this-ripple-xrp-can-go-only-one-way-up/ A nice positive article on Ripple / XRP.
  4. Everyone wants the price to be $100 now. Who doesn't? This year is Xcurrent, with a few baby steps to Xrapid. Next year Xrapid, will pick up more. And 2020 will be the year of Xrapid. keeping your feet on the ground and looking at it unemotional is important.
  5. A quote from the article below: "Long term, it seems clear the Lightning Network or something like it will remove the need for cheaper altcoins, but it’s unclear how long it will take for this development to come to fruition. As mentioned above, altcoins with low on-chain transactions may have some utility over the short term, perhaps even in assisting the proliferation of the Lightning Network on Bitcoin."

  6. Is there any evidence or rumors regarding a possible Ripple & Google partnership? I have seen that Google Ventures was part of initial $55M in Financing. There has been much speculation about Uber becoming a client of Ripple. However, after reading the article below I wonder if Uber may soon be irrelevant and where as a partnership with Google would be a tremendous story! Pure Speculation of course. https://www.fool.com/investing/2018/02/13/google-just-made-an-announcement-that-should-terri.aspx
  7. With good news dropping like raindrops, it's sometimes hard to understand why XRP price is not growing and is in a stupor. The market sometimes seems to react like a two year old. One would think that all the good news would point to a greater possibility of increased use of XRP, which points to a higher demand in the future. But no. Most people are still in a regressive state still treating XRP as if is was a fork of bitcoin with a higher total supply. Too many people don't do their homework to truly understand what ripple is trying to do with XRP, and the important relationship between xcurrent and XRP. Instead they take their limited knowledge and half truths about XRP, and treat it the way many people treated bitcoin: "it will never pass $1. It will never pass $10". The truth is, in order to get the hype in this young market you need to be a slightly more advanced type of bitcoin. You can't be too ahead off the curve. You can't be a car instead of a horse and buggy. You need to be a better type of horse and buggy. A lot of people can't see out of the bitcoin box at this early stage. Ps. Please don't tell me about hodling. Just venting here.

    Hi there, i have 2 question. Been wondering about a thing.. if it cost 20 xrp to create a wallet.. what will happen when xrp hits 10 dollar? 10 dollar x 20xrp for the wallet = 200 dollar just for wallet???? ledger xrp adress cost, exchange adress cost And for every xrp wallet being created, 20xrp is being lock in. In to the wallet, right? How can that be calculated in to the coinmarketcap? example. 1.15 dollar xrp X 39 billion xrp = 44 billion dollar... but what about the wallet xrp adress wallet thats being created and locking in 20xrp..?!?!
  12. I'd say this is pretty great news ladies and gentlemen!
  13. Boom, bust, and boom again. But how do these changes happen? What causes investor sentiment to shift from optimism to pessimism, or vice versa? Cryptocurrencies don’t have cash flows or underlying assets, so valuing their intrinsic worth is difficult. All investors can judge is their likelihood of success.

  15. I've been thinking a lot about how xRapid fits into Ripple's overall strategy and how financial institutions might want to use it. Given that ripple has yet to release many details on how xRapid exactly works, these are preliminary conclusions summarized from what I have read on this forum and my own thoughts; I would love to get feedback and hear any thoughts or additional use cases. Making payments to regions with limited correspondent banking relationships: xCurrent seems to only work with banks that have already established correspondent relationships with each other. If a payment needs to be made to a bank with limited correspondent relationships then it must go through a long route of multiple correspondent banks before arriving at its destination. This would likely be costly and slow if any of the intermediary correspondent banks are not using xCurrent. xRapid would cut down the cost and time by allowing the payer to send xrp straight to a liquidity provider that trades in the destination bank's "home" fiat currency and xrp. The liquidity provider would then send the payment denominated in local currency to the destination bank. This use case depends upon there being sufficient volume and enough liquidity providers willing to trade local fiat and xrp to make xRapid competitive in these regions Companies can use xRapid to make international payments directly to their customers worldwide. If a company in the US needs to pay a supplier in China, it could send xrp straight to a liquidity provider who trades xrp and RMB, trade for RMB, and then send RMB to the Chinese supplier's account. Of course the US company could still make the payment by means of traditional correspondent banking or xCurrent but using xrp may be faster and cheaper depending on exchange rates and banking fees. Reduction of nostro and vostro accounts. I have seen this mentioned many times here but only recently started to understand how it might work. Maintaining correspondent banking relationships is expensive for banks since they have to keep money deposited in other currencies at other banks. While that money is just sitting idly, it could be generating income by being put to other purposes such as lending or investing. Nostro and vostro accounts essentially impose an opportunity cost. Same with companies that need to make fast payments to employees or suppliers around the world. They currently deposit money with banks in all the countries in which they operate to be able to make fast payments. Having money sitting in multiple foreign accounts is costly for companies since it could be using that money to build their business. By using xrp or xRapid they could essentially offload the nostro vostro accounts to liquidity providers. Similar to the 2nd point and using the US company again as example, instead of having to keep a vostro account with a Chinese bank for means of paying Chinese suppliers, it could simply buy xrp using USD whenever it needed, send that xrp to a liquidity provider trading RMB/xrp who would then send RMB to the Chinese suppler. In all three use cases above, the payer can hold onto xrp but wouldn't necessarily need to as long as they could buy it using their local fiat. Thus, xrp is literally a bridge currency to other fiat AS LONG AS there are market makers/liquidity providers willing to trade fiat for xrp. I foresee xRapid facilitating the transfer of payments between payer -->liquidity provider --> payee similar to how xCurrent operates by using escrow and atomic transfers. I think it's definitely an uphill battle for all three use cases to play out since they rely heavily upon there being highly liquid xrp markets around the world. With that said it seems like Ripple is moving in the right direction to pull it off.

  17. $3.25 Ripple (XRP) Value Expected Cryptocurrency speculators are predicting that Ripple could eventually overtake Bitcoin. Despite misinformation, confusion and controversy surrounding the currency, many experts have been outspoken about the potential rise in the value of Ripple in the future – with the currency set to hit dizzy new heights of at least $3.25 by the end of 2018, if trends continue on their current trajectory. https://cryptodaily.co.uk/2018/02/3-25-ripple-xrp-value-expected/

  19. Ripple : Although Wall Street and Silicon Valley inhabit opposite ends of the country, leaders from both industries gather several times a year. Yesterday’s Goldman Sachs Technology and Internet Conference was one such rendezvous. Ripple CEO Brad Garlinghouse was in attendance, and at one point, he sat down for an interview with Bloomberg’s Emily Chang. (Source: “Ripple CEO Favors More Regulation of the Crypto Market,” Bloomberg, February 13, 2018.) It was (as usual) stuffed with great insights about XRP, Ripple’s ecosystem, and the cryptocurrency market as a whole.

  23. Jim Rickards' is usually right more than he is wrong, check 34:30: IF there is a future possibility the IMF has 189 nations under Hyperledger Fabric clearing settlements backed by a digital SDR, my take is this is central banks clearing with national balances vs. bank to bank clearing with XRP so I see this as a different use case and one that is ways off? The implications of XRP's use case arriving first is key.
