Chat: [Study Group] Session 0

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

I'm presuming that a lot of the people in the study group have a solid understanding of XRP and Ripple the company. But I ran across some great background articles by @Hodor That I'd recommend everyone give a read if you haven't seen them before.

I don't plan on discussing the timeline in detail in the group. But you will hear me referring back to Ripple's history from time to time.

I also found the below infographic reasonably consistent with my experience.

If you haven't run across the original "classic ripple pay" site, I encourage you to watch the short video there.

Many of the most confusing things about Ripple and XRP are related to poorly chosen names. I'm sure most people are familiar with this infographic that Ripple published.

But it is important to realize that the above names are just the most recent choices. Prior to this, the company and products have been called many different things. Some of are detailed in links referenced above, but many are not. It is nearly impossible to talk about the subject and why people are confused without referencing prior names and how they have changed.

Thanks for the reference, Bob!

However, those are the "republished versions" on the Ghost platform (the XRP Community Blog). 

The original platform where I published those particular blogs was my WordPress site, which is still operational.  The formatting is much better on the original site, so please read these instead:

@BobWay I hope you're doing well.  Is there any chance we can get some more reading material while we wait for the class to start?  Even if it's just a thread you remember from an old forum which contained constructive conversation relating to something you are planning to teach.
