Happy New Year Everyone... i havn't posted for a while, ripple inspired me to return to righting things, often gov social policies ... last year i took my gov to court and won! in part about abandoning youth into the community, often suiciding.

I bought my first XRP a year ago almost exactly to this day (REKT. I know). I know everyone always say they heard about BTC back in 2013, I should’ve bought it! Well I had a friend mining it and I wanted 0 part of it because I didn’t understand it. 

Fast forward to December last year, everyone is talking about it and I felt extremely dumb for not digging into the space at all, especially with the technical background that I have. 

So I made it my goal to research everything and anything about this space. I very quickly stumbled upon Ripple and XRP. It was hard to see the value at first as many in the cryptosphere called it a centralized scam, but the more I looked into the company, their partners, and the problem they were solving I was immediately hooked. I started reading through David’s old comments (man is a genius and doesn’t get the recognition he deserves, instead we applaud Roger Ver and Craig Wright and worship some fake persona “Satoshi”) and started following quality researchers on twitter like @BANKXRP and XrpCenter who post relevant snippets as well as the sources they come from. I made an account here and started reading awesome threads by guys like @Tehol_Beddict and articles written by @Hodor, @galgitron.

After being here for a year, I’ve noticed there’s a lot of noise in this space that can get you caught up in hype but it’s understandable. This is revolutionary technology, on the scale of tcp/ip. People have access to banks now because of projects like Mojaloop and companies like Ripple. They’re creating a global economy. It’s amazing to witness, I used to check the price everyday until I realized we’re still tied to bitcoin. If XRP can reach the levels it did last year based on pure speculation, where will it go once it’s being fully utilized?

Whenever I explain Ripple+XRP, I like to use this quote championed by Ripple themselves: “Enable the world to move value like information moves today” https://ripple.com/insights/the-internet-of-value-what-it-means-and-how-it-benefits-everyone/

2019 is lining up to be a big year for Ripple and XRP, thank you to everyone here on XRPChat (plenty that I didn’t mention, I apologize) for helping  and educating new people like myself
