biggn Posted January 7, 2018 Share Posted January 7, 2018 I thought the last paragraph was very interesting: "As someone here already said, Coinbase put out a statement that 1) no decisions about a number of unlisted coins potentially being added had been reached yet, and that 2) their official communiques alone count in this matter. People will read what they want into what is written and happily up the drama level and spread FUD (fear, uncertainty, doubt) as if it were their full-time job and they were getting paid for it. Some undoubtedly are. As to your specific question, I suspect Ripple is headed in the same exact direction it was headed before, that is to say, forward and up. ‘Forward’ in adding partnerships, development and promoting adoption of their tech, working to anticipate and stay compliant with foreseeable regulation, and creating value as they solve a trillion dollar real-world problem (cross-border payments and settlement) for a growing number of current and potential customers. And ‘up’ in that asset price logically follows value. No self-respecting company, especially one with such a clear strategic focus and strong use case(s) as Ripple, is going to alter their course in any way other than for reasons that make business sense to them. No one here is privy to those, and much of what is tweeted or posted by self-appointed pundits is baseless. At this point, given the widespread interest in purchasing XRP by new money as well as by money already in crypto, the contortions that many have to go through by purchasing other ‘gateway’ assets that hold no interest to them, and the fees being left on the table if direct XRP purchase is not facilitated pretty soon by those that can do so, what any exchange not yet listing XRP and providing proper currency pairings may well be asking themselves is how much longer they can afford to continue down this path. And that is a direction that I suspect may undergo change. Taking a somewhat less US-centric view, and to put things in perspective, large Japanese exchange DMM Group will list XRP starting on the 10th of January. They reportedly have on the order of 27M subscribers, or about twice Coinbase’s 13M." Rchopra, stean, RubenParren and 3 others 4 2 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
