I often ask myself how the network would be if permissionned (in a way or the other) or have a kyc XRP version.
Permissionless has advantages but also disadvantages, you can have bad actors, it's also maybe scary for big corp?

XRP just being a token, it's hard to make it to value without an exchange and/or traces to an IOU(.fiat) One always has to pass by a gateway or an exchange in one way or another ...

Where have you seen this? Just because there was a trial with RC3 you think this?

It has never been clearly specified and I don't think it's the case.

You are right, of course. For sharing the same nuanced view as you, I get insulted for propagating the lie that Corda and Ripple are "competitors"

Ughh...  Bitcoiners on Twitter still hate Ripple. No improvement on that front.

I swear they try and tech shame me. I felt them backing me into a corner a little while ago so I posted a full blown picture of me next to a Ripple logo, haha. It's so scandalous! (And absurd.)

Don't worry, the last laugh will be had eventually and the best tech will win out. Just remember the Twitter handles in future so you can gloat and be all like "told you soooo!" in their eggy faces.

I feel like I secretly work for the CIA just because I like Ripple, lol. I'm so shady because I like Bitcoin and Ripple. I tried talking about it with somebody who had never heard of Bitcoin and it was the most asinine attempt at an explanation, haha.

You're like an anarchist in the middle of a street riot telling your fellow anarchists how the NSA isn't all bad and that you're a fangirl of one of the main architects :)

No. No I'm not. :P

I know you're kidding, but just for the record... Liking Bitcoin doesn't make me an anarchist any more than liking Ripple makes me a statist. (Labels never fit me well anyway.)

I know, I know. Sometimes it just feels like one cannot be interested bitcoin and have discussions about it without the whole "bitcoin will kill all banks" talk added along. Voices of the sensible bitcoiners seem to drown in all kinds of anti-establishment chants. And when you talk about ripple to folks like that, it's like the ultimate evil with its friendliness towards the establishment and banks. 

I shouldn't have started it by describing you as an anarchist, as it wasn't really accurate in that comparison. Perhaps "an ethusiast of different elements overlapping anarchism, but seen as an anarchist by her anarchist interlocutors"

BitMint is being designed as a universal platform to stretch from nano payments between two IOT devices, through casual transactions, cross-border, and mega transfers. An inherently scaleable, frictionless, super versatile bit format for money and value. Today it is applied in closed circles to various anchors of values. Including... bitcoins! see blog. Unlike bitcoin and its imitators BitMint does not rely on the current financial ciphers which are only effective against an adversary who shares the mathematical insight of the designer. A smarter adversary will steal or destroy bitcoin. BitMint represents a new thinking see RandomnessRising.com
