How Sustainable is Ripple and XRP?

Recommended Posts

Bee populations threatened with extinction in the world. Scientists from 124 countries sounded the alarm!

How Sustainable is Ripple and XRP? Are ripple servers running in Sustainable Data Centers? All these kind off initiatives will be embraced by banks, etc IMO.

The big win for Ripple already is that you can't mine XRP:-)

Very true! That's why my favorite always was Ripple - mining nonsense is way to old fashion and absolutely not defendable any more in our, from an environment perspective, heavily threatened globe.... 

Followed by ETH where mining at least has a useful purpose ...

I had a validator running reliably on a m3.large in Amazon. There are rippled servers, and clusters out there, but nothing near the extent of a mined currency. Not even a comparison.

You should check the last episode of Black Mirror ;)

Season 3, Episode 2 titled "Playtest" really had me going...

I am very curious as to why known Ripple partners don't have unmasked validators on the network. Earthport, Accenture, Microsoft, NBAD, Bitstamp, Cryptofacilities, Gatehub (@enej?)...

Call the lawyers - @enej is infringing on Ripple's trademark!

But seriously, that's good news. I am surprised that GateHub hasn't been running one since it started up, though.

Great to see Gatehub on the validator list. It'd make quite a statement if all Ripple partners launched validators. Bluzelle, CGI, Deloitte, flashFX, bitstamp, microsoft, etc... Polo runs a rippled, might as well encourage them to run a validator.
