What Announcement(s) Are You Hoping for at SWELL?

Let's have some fun. 

What announcements are you hopeful about?  What do you think would be super-duper-off-the-wall cool?

Doesn't have to be original--even if its the same as someone else's post, I really would love to hear it.

I'll start it off:  I hope that there is an announcement that Ripple is teaming up with Airbnb and that they soon will be transitioning to using XRP for all of their transactions!

Well, I expect some new news on companies adopting XRP.  But the two that I am looking for to really drive price is Airbnb and Coinbase.  Airbnb more likely at this point.  Even if they say that they are launching 6 months from now, that is good enough for me.  That consumer use case will drive the price, you know where!

I think announcements about SBI and escrow lockup would be considered as “just” a confirmation of already expected news. Same for a real bank/FI case or new bank partners (already announced couple of days ago) . So I’m hoping on a mind blowing consumer use case. A partnership with a Credit Card company, Uber, Airbnb or something in that direction. 

I’ll be flabbergasted if a partnership with Swift is announced. I would be suïcidal if nothing is announced.

A Coinbase inclusion of XRP would be great!  I feel like it is only a matter of time....why offer LiteCoin but not XRP?

I think any and all announcements or confirmations of usage would really be predicated upon official governmental regulations.

It seems the Japanese government is one of the first to really push that ball forward. I don’t know about India or South Korea or even the Middle East (from a regulatory standpoint).

I don’t think we’ll see any large western companies using XRP for anything while the current tax structure is in place or there isn’t more clarity from the IRS.

I would be absolutely freaking jazzed at some sort of Steve Jobs level live demo of the first official transfer, but based on SBI not registering for XRP exchanging I’m not sure what the possibilities of that are.

I think they’re still focused on growing out their root system so I think we’ll still be in for a lot of media teasing and what will look like a large shift to get digital assets out of the niche they’re in and into the mainstream.

They have to change perception and deliver a quality product so they have a lot of work to do.

Two use cases company may be named :

1) One of the largest media company in the world with studios and theme parks around the world.

2) One of the largest online travel booking site that requires many and quick cross border payments

Wink ...wink...you figure who they are and how XRP would benefit them.

That's oddly specific...

In my humble opinion, there is no way that any of these announcements in the last few days are bigger that what they will announce at Swell. That just doesn't make any sence.

Agreeded... We need to see a unified stance behind XRP simultaneously used with the current banks and their parners using the RippleNet.

I hope we see XRP as the bridge currency for all currencies, CYN, YEN, WON, USD, CAD all of them.....'G'old and new.

Banks with infrastructure plans across the OBRO market.

I want BG to say that China and all central banks now accept XRP as a legitimate and at this point, the only credible, regulated  means of cross-border settlement for Gov infrastructure deals. XRP to be endorsed by all central banks in Asia and Europe.

So.... If the payment for CAT, BOB CAT, CASE and any other big machinery for building projects or even goods like TV's, Cars, homes and even farm land ... XRP can be seen as certified way to settle payment, from bank to bank in the equivalent currency used... CYN, USD, Gold or Silver Or the backing of.

So if a new HD TV Comes to market from Asia to Europe and the TV costs 1300 usd and USD is not accepted then XRP can be used 5200 XRP in place of 1300usd.

This is what i want to hear.... ONLY

Then I will stop posting lol... But China must be ready to commit and even a hand shake for the cameras with BG and an Official.
