    I had some (about 1,000). Bought at 14 and sold at 19cent in the great kraken sell off, so made a little profit.

    I do think it will do good and deliver a decent return. But i don't see it ever becoming "a next bitcoin".

    Have been meaning to buy it back on Bittrex but the recent spike to 25 means i'm just waiting right now.

    have about 3,000 of these myself, bought in at about 20 cent so I'm up 25% currently. Would probably sell if they ever reach something like 50cent :)

    I'm holding some of this too.
    Bought it as a longshot but the trickle of announcements from the team regarding adoption by some financial institutions has kept my interest piqued in this coin.
    It does have a huge amount of coin in circulation and this may to my mind lead to its actually being more utilised for transactional purposes.

    The main big coins are all being HODL'd and while there is a much tighter supply of ETH and BTC etc. it is hard to see how given their current rise in prices and volatility that they can be used as anything other than speculative stores of value.
    Anyone holding the main coins at the moment is not going to be inclined to use them for payments or for disrupting normal payment practices as originally envisaged.
    Whereas ripple does seem to be gaining some support for transactional use at the very least.

    I'm hearing there is an announcement being made next month which could potentially impact ripples value drastically, Is this true ?


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,263 ✭✭✭ garrettod

    Whether it's true or not, I don't know ....

    But what I do know is that posting comments like that are sometimes used to help push the price up...hopefully in this instance, what you've heard will prove true :)

    Thanks,

    G.

    Up 7% since splashuums comment. I don't suppose you'd like to say something similar about OMG or ARK? ;)

    Finally some activity. Hopefully next week's news is positive or will it just be a false dawn in anticipation of the news

    I've seen bad reviews on these - any issues when you request to take your money out?


  • Registered Users Posts: 158 ✭✭ millhouse

    None so far. Using bitstamp since September. Have had transactions in and out without issue.

    Bitfiniex,

    Has anyone here tried to send ripple on their Ledger Nano S.

    I have been trying to send some from my Ledger to another wallet.

    I have sent 500 ripple with a very small charge but if I try to empty my Ledger of ripple, only another 60 ripple, it wants to charge me 20 ripple for the service.

    Has anyone else had this issue?

    I have written to Ledger support but I don't expect a reply from a real person for some time.

    TIA

    I seriously doubt that commenting on an obscure Irish discussion forum would be enough to move markets. :p

    We're all in this psy-op together.🤨

    a while back i sent 100k ripple from my ledger, it's not charging you 20, it's something weird, you must retain 20 ripple or something, anyway, i transferred and when i go in today i have a balance of 20 ripple, i can't quite remember

    Did you never head the phrase "every little helps" ? :cool:

    Also, how do we know that the same person isn't posting something similar on more than one discussion forum etc. ?

    Thanks,

    This sums up my opinion on the performance of Ripple since I've been holding it.

    I sold mine last week and luckily went into Lumens just before this big rise. I was only holding ripple for about 5 weeks.

    David Schwartz (Chief Cryptographer at Ripple) announced on Twitter "it's happening" in the last hour... So escrow should be coming into effect... Prices should rise...

    Edit so escrow has happened

    Anyone having issues withdrawing xrp on kraken? its saying i must be a tier 3 member to withdraw. I had no issues withdrawing xrp last week and i am not gone over the limits either, far from it.

    Edit: Must have been a glitch in their system as I was able to withdraw a few minutes later.

    I wrote here some days ago about attempting to transfer my ripple to another account.

    Very annoyingly it seems that ripple insists on leaving 20 XRP in any account which a user may use.

    https://ripple.com/build/reserves/

    This seems to mean that 20 XRP is always going to remain unusable and untransferable in any account. I assume this also means that if you transfer, as I did, to another account then you will have 40 XRP which will be unusable, and so on.

    I don't know if this is going to be a permanent thing but it's very annoying.

    I presume its to ensure that there is always ripple in the world (since Ripple is designed to start with allthe coins pre-mined and then destroy some as part of each transaction)?

    Two partnerships to be announced next Friday @ 5 pm pacific

    According to David Schwartz they're two "huge" household names.

    https://www.reddit.com/r/Ripple/comments/7j14sv/unannounced_partnerships/

    Interesting.

    Edit: Reading that it is Amazon & Uber. Pure & utter speculation, at this point, however.

    Where would ye recommend to buy Ripple and which wallet to use? I have been doing a fair bit of reading on this but still find it a minefield for info!

    Any recommendations would be great.

    Cheers
