What was your motivation for buying when you did btw. Did you think it could sustain those massive gains?


Basically I wanted some of those gains! I was always sceptical about the vast number of crypto currencies available but thought at least the main ones had a bit more room to grow.
Anyway it's only about 2% of my investments. Hope it won't totally collapse.

I've got a couple of ex work mates who have invested heavily in mining rigs, so feel bad for them. One of them had spent over 20 grand on mining rigs and rented out space in a data centre. Apparently it was costing him over 2.5K a month! Poor guy. This guy used to be a Business Analyst earning very good money and when he left the company close to a year ago, became a full time 'crypto trader, miner and advisor' and invested quite a bit of his redundancy money :(

Is that the bounce? XRP went from .66 to 1.22 (au) in a flash. This is nuts.

It didn’t happen after the futures contract and was 10 days late but that crash / dump was as described. What is interesting is the prediction that if the market doesn’t completely tank we could see a rally back to ATH soon.

Funny that some coins are called pump coins when the entire market gets f**ked the way it does. :uhoh:

https://cryptodaily.co.uk/2018/02/bittr ... -deposits/

Quote:
Bittrex CEO, Bill Shihara has revealed that the US based exchange would open up USD deposits, possibly dumping tether as their main pairing.

He hinted that dollar deposits might be available soon on the exchange, in a bid to keep up with the ever changing demand, saying;

Dollar Bills Sitting on a Laptop

“Yes, there is going to be a time, I actually think it’s not that far away, when we are going to open up for global signups again, we will end up doing additional requirements, minimum deposit sizes, and things like that to trade, ensuring signs up that are coming in, are people who understand what they are doing…demand has been pretty incredible.”

The exchange currently only deals with cryptocurrencies, and Bitcoin and tether serve as the main pairing for their listed cryptos; however, this could all be about to change. Shihara also discussed how businesses that are focused on retail investors have used Bittrex’s back-end to offer crypto to a much wider audience saying;

“One of the ways, we get the best of both worlds, we have these partnerships, such as Korean exchange Upbit, they use our liquidity, but is basically a retail shop in Korea. We’ve built this back-end infrastructure and Upbit can just plug into it and build on top of it…We’re going to see more deals like that in the coming year. And we will be doing USD tranding; this won’t be open to everybody, available for the majority of our suterms as well as foreign partners that build on top of us.”

Physical Bitcoins Sitting on Laptop With Chart

The reason behind this change comes at a time when suspicions of Tether have heightened. They have allegedly been artificially inflating the price of the cryptocurrency, with no reserves to back up the currency, which means it could take down those exchanges that rely on USDT. When asked if we should be concerned about the Tether allegations, Shihara said;

“Tough question, we treat it as another altcoin. The market agrees Tether is backed by something, as it is trading as a dollar substitute. But I always tell people to do their own research and be cautious in crypto.”

When speaking about how the decentralised exchanges will affect Bittrex, he said;

“I think the technology has a long way to mature, we’ve got a long way to go before we see mature decentralised exchange solutions, especially trading the volume that we do on Bittrex.”

Blockchain USD already exist.

Blockchain EUR and GBP will exist by the end of the year.

Nothing at all new in this.

I don't think you understand what the article is about. This has nothing to do with "blockchain USD" and isn't any new technology. This is about a major alt exchange going through the regulatory framework to get fiat deposits in USD. Currently they do not accept fiat and only trade crypto pairs.

Because there are currently no USD to alt exchanges. Currently the process for a USD holder who wants to buy alts is:

Open account on Coinbase
Deposit on Coinbase
Buy BTC on Coinbase and pay a trading fee
Open account on alt-exchange
Send BTC from Coinbase wallet to Alt-exchange, pay transaction fee and wait for transaction to be confirmed
Buy preferred alt on the alt exchange, pay trading fee

All of that costs money, takes time and is a pain in the ass. It's also somewhat daunting for someone new to the space.

This is good for alts and somewhat bad for BTC, since the need to trade in BTC pairs increases demand for BTC.

Edit to add that it also reduces reliance on Coinbase, which is obviously a very good thing.

Not sure what currency you mean? NZD? I have a fairly large holding built over a couple of years. I trade +/- USD$2million a month.

That sounds like more than enough to live off..so have you retired from your normal work to live off trading crypto?

Yeah that.... alway been a bit underwhelmed by XRP but have a stash of them just in case. OMG I like this year considering how the Asians have embraced mobile payments, cross platform usability with PayPal, AliPay, etc, PoS, epic advisory team including Vitalek Butarin of ETH, Gavin Wood of ETH, Joesph Poon who wrote the whitepaper for the lightening network, decentralised exchange.... it's pretty epic so I've jumped on that for 2018 (along with ETH, LTC, NEO, VEN, ADA, XLM, NEO, EOS, DASH, PLR & ICON)

ETH's price action looked very good to me over the last month or so, compared to the others
It's good for trading on the long side going forward I reckon
And XRP is my long-term gamble

Wnere about Xrapid? Literally from the Coindesk article:

Quote:
A Santander spokesperson, said "we plan to launch this in the next few months, and we can confirm on the record that we plan to use xCurrent in the project."

Ripple's xCurrent product does not use XRP, the company's native cryptocurrency.

Santander are using xCurrent (which is going to be replaced by xRapid). Moneygram are piloting Xrapid as are SBI.

Once Xcurrent testing starts being replaced by Xrapid things will get exciting.

I hold 1/4 of that XRP being my greatest exposure. Yesterday morning I sold looking to buy back in lower as the indicators were more downward movement, the price jumped up .10 and spooked me so as soon as I could I bought back in .2 under what I sold for netting me 175 XRP. Had I not shat the bed I could have picked up another 6k when I got home from work, I’m clearly no trader.

Yeah I've retired from normal work at 49 although I do have some contracts. I'm a full stack developer and can code most things so I'm in quite demand.

So Santander, the 18th largest bank in the world is rolling out a Ripple powered (Xcurrent) mobile app in Q1 with apple pay in four countries providing cross boarder settlements in 40 seconds at 30% less cost to 14M consumers. This isn’t a trial, this is actual adoption happening now, not years down the track.

So what are the other banks using technology that takes 3+ days at greater cost thinking? They are paying attention.

XRP is not currently being used but at what point does taking that 40second transaction and turning it into a 5 second transaction at a further reduction of cost become further market advantage?

Ripple are, and have been for quite some time quietly proving their product to financial institutes, Xrapid is the upgrade to the Xcurrent system that is being trailed / used.

MoneyGram is trailing Xrapid now.

The Japan Bank Consortium a coalition of 61 banks in Japan, organised by SBI Ripple Asia has announced the launch of a new Ripple pilot with Woori Bank and Shinhan Bank, two of South Korea’s largest banks.

The list goes on.

XRP (Xrapid) may not reach widespread adoption but show me a crypto project with real world application solving real world problems right now.
