Ripple is laserfocused on their use case

wow, 'LASERFOCUSED'; never heard that one before, what a newly, deeply exciting techy buzzword, someones definitely got their finger on the....I mean someone's definitely 'laserfocused' on the silicon valley garbage speak...I mean pulse of the tech world... right wowzers. 

By laserfocused do you mean when a company has 'pivoted' their use case several times since inception. I get a little confused with all these buzzterms...?

Realize, with all due respect and as others in this thread have pointed out....

puff, wordiness my friend. But yeh, probably some cynical ploy to have XRP seen as a token, why else would they do this, nice username by the way, hope you are female with that username...

Things change as has their target market and strategy. However Ripple has always been and is still a payments company. I believe the reference to being laser focused was on payments.

Still talking about this ? Apart from some guys literally out of topic up here.

We are in 2019, lots of free to play games have an in-game shop with fashion items or outfits that do not influence the winning conditions in the game.

The market potential is huge for us considering the revenues the biggest companies generate through the sales of those in-game items.

It's a no-brainer Ripple decides to take on this market as well.

imagine every other game token being issued and settled on the xrp ledger, through xrp for liquidity...

i think that's ultimately the vision here, on-DEX volumes

Can you please show me major banks using xRapid in any significant way other test pilots and a rare small transfer which is marketed as victory? No?  So yes, they're lagging behind where they said they'd be.

you  should sell your xrp

otherwise you´ll have a heart attack :shock:

I'm not so sure that this is trending towards just in-game virtual goods between gamers. I think once Augmented Reality (AR) evolves, the IOV evolves, XRP could be entrenched as a liquidity provider for not just 'in-game tokens' but really 'in-anything communication.' Virtual goods I think have a place across all industries not just gaming, i.e. essentially opening up new 'browsers of our perception.' Not trying to get all Ready Player One here but I think gaming is likely near term with other ways to utilize new ways of barter in other fields in the future.

I agree with you 7Bs. I don't think xrp would be used just to buy goods. I think it could also be used for streaming games, in the sense of play as you go. That way if you don't like a game or get bored of it you can just leave it. Instead of having to pay $60 for a game you keep forever (that eventually gathers dust, like my wren and stimpy sega game) you can play for the low low price .002 per minute in micropayments. Allowing a person to play for a few hours or more before deciding to buy or sell. (extended demo <?>). Or it could be purely play as you go. Then free time if you do something that is good. Reach a certain level, coding ect. Would coders want to be paid in micro payments for time spent amending code to programs. I don't know that is all I got.

Getting paid for time spent seems like it could run into on-retainer issues. The thing about gaming rewards in XRP which would be wild would be the developer/gaming platform essentially acting as the in-game bank. Could they top up a central wallet and pay out rewards from it, and collect interest on gaming-pseudo loans.

The answer is simple. Ripple sets a goal, announces it publicly, to pump their own coin.  (Which they hold but do not “own”) When the promise becomes reality, they simply set a new goal. When the investors say “Hey you promised cheese, and all we got was stink” They say you are a FUDDER.

It has been going on for years now.

I loved when Mr. Garlinghouse announced they are signing so many banks that they cannot release the names individually, Rather they will announce them 100 at a time (bulk press releases). That was Feb 2018...Since that glorious promise there has not been 1 single bulk announcement. But the focus was quickly directed to the release of xRapid from beta testing. This happened in Nov 2018... Volume did not change.... we were then told patience was key, because thanks to xRapid The USD to Mex market was to explode with transactions,  Later Forbes uncovered the truth that MoneyGram and WU made a combined total of 2 transfers, and then quietly tabled the product. 

Of course the RL news headline was slightly more positive: “MoneyGram and Western Union are “actively testing “ xRapid. Not exactly a lie, just what we call “Crypto Truth” or “Crypto Facts”. Remember this space is unregulated, so anything goes, and you invested in a San Francisco based operation. Not particularly the best area of the world for ethics and morals. That area of America is full of profiteers from capitalism, while publicly pushing for socialism. Hypocrites.

Ues FI and banks are no longer needed for XRP, video games are the true future.

There are a ton of shitcoin tokens that are doing this now.  Enjin, Bezant, WAX for tokenization of assets.  NEO also has pivoted from a Chinese Smart Economy fuel, if anyone ever bought that, to trying to get into games.  Ethereum has had it share of stupid games.  EOS and TRON also have a lot of activity in mostly stupid games and now in gambling.  Is XRP going to follow trying to create demand?  This really isn't the use case.  We are lagging behind in adoption of the use case yet instead of focuses on Ripple wants to get into something that every shitcoin is doing?  

I have one word as to why Ripple, and you for that matter, should care about the gaming industry; liquidity.  See, gaming isn't really about buying a video game in your local store anymore.  Everything is online now.  You download games.  Because of this game makers are going to want to receive their native fiat and not have to use swift or some local exchange to convert their profits.  This is where XRP comes in; namely cross-border instant settlement.  Furthermore, there will come a time when instant streaming of payments will be used in gaming because I don't necessarily want to pay a ton of money for a game that I may want to play for a week because I just like the storyline or want to beat it once and be done with it.  It's the new renting of games.  For the games that I want to own because I'm just really into that game then I can pay for it outright.  This is the new way to lease a game, or rent it, much like Amazon has done for college textbooks.  I don't want to own my books so now I just rent them for a fraction of owning them.  If anyone in the whole cryptosphere should care about this, it should be XRP holders because it's another use case to source liquidity from.  This could be as big or bigger than the cross-border payments people want to send because it's a way bigger niche of people who will spend crazy money, especially in developing countries.  After all, people have to have their entertainment!
