Snoop Dogg Helps Ripple's Crypto Community Get High at XRP Event

Maybe that is who they were going for. 

this. almost all of the money in crypto right now is speculative money. The majority of the investors are young, enthusiast people that are looking for an opportunity to make it in life. Could it have been targeted to bring awareness to people that don`t give a f*ck about crypto? I dare to guess that not many Snoop Dog devoted fans are invested in crypto. It would be interesting to find out.

Yeah that choice of musician was unfortunate. I wonder who made that happen.

Regarding the Bloomberg item, this passage says it all what garbage the article is:

Quote

One attendee, in town from the Netherlands for New York’s Blockchain Week, criticized the cryptocurrency, saying it relies on banks instead of disrupting them. Others, including bankers from Wall Street firms, questioned the legitimacy of digital tokens in general.

Could go on:

Quote

While yet other people lamented they were not properly informed to buy Ripple token two years ago, which is completely unacceptable by any means of international management standards and transparency.

Maybe that was the case when the company was called Ripple Labs, and it has only ever been 'unique' in the fact that it is usually a disappontment. The company is called Ripple and a higher level of professionalism is expected, given what they are trying to achieve. 

Sorry Leprecoin, but hard to take your ‘professionalism’ call seriously - you’re just a freakin’ little leprechaun taking a dump in a hat full of gold coins. You need to pack that empty pipe you got there, take a puff and chill ya dill out (along with all the other complainers).

They should have had the event at the library and read books together.

Your comment made me laugh pretty hard, humor is a good thing.

At least I have a smile on my leprechaun face. You look pretty miserable

Interesting to see how quickly all the usual suspects come to share in collective criticism. It is apparent that the authors of the article are biased against Ripple and instead of adopting an objective and neutral stance as any good journalists would, have been quick to do a completely negative spin on the event and interweaved bits of fact with heaps of fiction. Snoop Dogg has been a public supporter of the cryptosphere for many years and the fact that he is one of the most popular rappers goes a long way in bringing awareness of Ripple and XRP to the masses. 

It doesn't matter whether or not the author is biased, the fact is that Bloomberg has a worldwide footprint in the business world, and any bad press in regards to Ripple does no one any good. Isn't it bad enough with all the negative press Ripple has to deal with already? Why invite the press in the first place? You can call my comments part of the collective criticism that is posted on here, (that's fine, and at this moment, that is true), but label me as a usual suspect as I haven't posted often on this forum, is a bit much. I guarantee I've been holding this asset a hell of alot longer than you have, and when I see any asset or company I'm invested in make mistakes such as this, make me wonder the after effects on my investment. It should make you think as well. Snoop may be a popular rapper, but my educated guess is that most people that follow him and his career, are not thinking about a long term investment that has the possibility to change the entire banking industry around the world, and whoever decided on having him perform there most likely just wanted a front row seat for free at the company expense, and possibly ours as well.

Judging people and companies by their desire of having a chillout party, smoking weed and drinking margaritas is very ignorant.

Go XRP and go weed!

PS: I personally agree less on the other typical rap topics (shooting, ******s, ....)

To me this is not good press you want to have, especially when your trying to work with big banking, and for Brad G to say he didn't have the final word on who preformed at this event doesn't go over well with me. Some may think that any press is good, I beg to differ.

For you maybe not but for me it is good press. Better than Verge partnership with Pornhub.

We can voice our concerns, but at least let's spell the man's professional name right. :)

Hope everyone there had fun. Wish I could have been there!

Does anyone have a video? ?

Yes, better than to be affiliated with that. To me that is never a good thing, but when it is quoted in the article: "The smell of marijuana wafted through the half-filled space in Manhattans Meat Packing District", that doesn't look good for you CEO to be present, and for him to slide the blame on someone else for the event, that's not good either. Look, to each their own, I am not arguing the fact of what took place, and I am not that naïve to think that people involved in high stakes finance don't do these things, as well, my point is if your going to play in the big money (sand) box with the rest of the world, you definitely need to better think out the perception of your company that you want to portray to the rest of the world.

@XRPG I see you only have 22 posts so perhaps you're new to xrpchat but were you born yesterday? Really, you think bankers don't use drugs?
