Doing my bit for mass adoption...


Recommended Posts

Hey everyone sorry I know it is not a news story per say but these gold and silver souvenir XRP coins have recently been released and I have been buying them for friends and family, I give them 100 XRP on the coin (they can just ask me for the current fiat value when they like).

So far four of them have actually gone and learnt how to do it themselves and bought more!! Am I a doosh or is this not a great idea?! https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/XRP-Ripple-Coin-Gold-Rare-Crypto-Coin-FREE-Display-Case-Souvenir/184541455869?_trkparms=aid%3D111001%26algo%3DREC.SEED%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D225076%26meid%3D4a61a7153efd422ab3ab1ca504ff861f%26pid%3D100970%26rk%3D1%26rkt%3D1%26mehot%3Dnone%26sd%3D184541455869%26itm%3D184541455869%26pmt%3D0%26noa%3D1%26pg%3D2380057&_trksid=p2380057.c100970.m5481&_trkparms=pageci%3A06790a74-3afb-11eb-b4bd-c6ca7db26aa7%7Cparentrq%3A4d3be0461760a99c67fee280fffef1b2%7Ciid%3A1

An alternative is put the public r address into Bithomp Explorer and send them that URL and tell them to save it as a bookmark.

Then they can see the current USD value at any time by using a browser bookmark.  Almost anyone can manage that I think.

I'd certainly say it's not a good idea. I would not like to get relatives involved and speculating on crypto. All will be great as long as it goes up and until someone's gambling-o-meter goes in the red zone and they start loosing money. But who am I party-poopin this idea :) 

I always wondered where the urge comes from to get other retail "investors" in on XRP or even get them convinced about its use/value-proposition. It's not necessary for its success. Nor SBI, R3, Ripple, ... are retail oriented. And your "lousy" xx dollar is a bumblebee-bat-fart in the milky-way of crypto.
