He's asking re: USD straight to XLM, rather than via XBT. Kraken doesn't offer XLM/USD sadly.

Cool, you're paraphrasing a portion of my statement to rebut it. Ignoring the other relevant points regarding their news.

And yes, every single crypto does have a roadmap - just as most cryptos tend to pump for a bit when an updated or annual one is released.

forgive me bro i just dont believe in stellar its a copy from ripple but with an empty portfolio....

I have roughly equal amounts of XRP and XLM. Of course, the XLM is worth about half what the XRP is worth. I bought XLM as a sort of hedge, although I really don't think XRP and XLM are strictly competitors. 

I don't know of anyplace where you can buy XLM using $$. I buy them on Kraken; I buy XBT (bitcoin on Kraken) and then use XBT to buy XLM. It's a nuisance but not difficult. You need to know the XLM/XBT ratio, usually something with four zeros following the decimal point (it's now around .00005400); you multiply that by the current bitcoin price in USD to get XLM/$$.

Haha, sorry, didn't mean to snap. I think there's room for success for both of them. XRP remains my main investment, but XLM has a foothold and isn't going away in the near term. It's not quite in direct competition with XRP for either Ripple or Stellars initial objectives, so there's no harm in having both.

Obviously, when we're talking endgame - they may round on each other and be in direct competition. We're years from endgame though. I don't feel guilty for hedging my bets.

I'm so pumped.  My brain has been going crazy these past few days and I'm really bullish about the future.  Has anyone been following the mobile payments developments in China?  Baidu and PayPal, links to Alipay and MoneyGram, WeChat????  BofA API gateway opening for Europe, Middle East, and Africa??  There seems to be so much Fintech action it's nuts and to think that Ripple will play in a small amount gets my loins in a bunch.
