Coinbase & Ripple History

Recommended Posts

Who can explain what the History is between Coinbase and Ripple. It takes two to tango and what has happened in the past that is causing Coinbase not to take on XRP?

Honestly, who cares? If XRP is to be the cross-border payment titan of a digital asset that it is poised to be, who cares if coinbase carries it or not so a few small retail speculators can get in on the action. Those groups who are interested in buying XRP in large amounts have already done so. Small-time retail speculation will not matter.

I dont really think there is a backstory to XRP specifically. Coinbase never expected the massive Cryptocurrency wave that hit at the end of last year (who did?). They had been promising implementing Bitcoin C(r)ash ever since the fork back in August. Now they are working on a massive backlog of customers tickets taking up so much of the time.

They must have been working on impementing Bitcoin Cash for months and probably had set a date before the massive rally began. Now everyone is angry at them because they did not implement Segwit and batch orders, so the Bitcoin blockchain was suddenly extremely constipated . Adding other coins in the middle of this would probably cause complete chaos and an even bigger backlog of complaint tickets.

 

The entire tech team at Coinbase were probably completely redirected in their tasks in january.

I wouldn't go that far, though I understand the sentiment (coinbase blows).  Liquidity is still the key to XRP's success.  Increase in fiat/xrp combo will increase xrp value which should increase xrp usage as a settlement token IMO.

more market -> more liquidity -> price increase . i think this is success way of xrp. 1 point very important is fee transactions when use xrp will be destroy , this is reason to increase price when more transactions use xrp !
