    I use bitstamp for Ripple, found it to be a pain to set up though. Bitfinex much easier to setup if you already have a source of coins (i.e. coinbase etc) but I haven't used it yet.

    Im thinking of sticking 100 quid in for starters.

    Bitstamp are taking over 12 days to verify ID and open an account :mad:

    Thanks,

    Got quiet a bit of XRP but how do you guys see it growing long term?


  • Registered Users Posts: 6,026 ✭✭✭ grindle


    Slowly but surely. Think of how fast an unfettered Uber is able to displace traditional taxis if allowed.

    Ripple being Uber and Swift being traditional taxis.

    It's a long hold - maybe not the highest earner like 5-10x ICO flips, but companies like cost-cutting and XRP cuts costs.

    Pushed through the .30c mark earlier and on .32c now on CMC. Nice push if it can hold or continue. HODL!

    Any suggestions on where to buy? Kraken is a disaster.


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,000 ✭✭✭ dashoonage

    I bought on Bittrex back when it was .20c and it was painless enough tbh, took about 20 mins in total for the transaction to complete but that was in october. Not sure what it's like now.

    Have a look here for up to date Exchanges and prices.

    anyone used avatrade?

    Any response to this, I've set an account up with them a while back and read terrible reviews on line but seems to be mainly from people who didn't verify themselves first and didn't know how CFDs actually worked.

    I've never had any problems but never tried to withdraw yet so who knows...

    Be careful with Bitttex. You can deposit but not withdraw until you get enhanced verification!

    Yeah I have that so all good now. Took a while but got it in the end. This whole Crypto trading is more complex than the wifes moodswings on a full moon cycle ffs...... :o

    XRP is on the up. How far do you guys see this going realistically? Have a good bit of XRP for a long term investment.


  • Registered Users Posts: 921 ✭✭✭ benjamin d


    I timed that perfectly by pure dumb luck. Bought 2 days ago at €0.20 and it's now at 0.57 and rising on Kraken. Could we see a euro? Definitely $1 is on the horizon if this keeps up.


  • Registered Users Posts: 396 ✭✭ Dutchy


    Since posting the other day this one has been on a rocket. Big day ahead for this one re announcements. I'm holding with no intention of getting off the ride any time soon


  • Registered Users Posts: 640 ✭✭✭ jonny_b


    Yeah I got in early too at 17c have tripled what I’ve bought


  • Registered Users Posts: 921 ✭✭✭ benjamin d


    I've seen chat of $100 and beyond but I doubt that. If the rumours about coinbase adding XRP are true there'll be a huge surge though, so maybe it's a possibility?


  • Registered Users Posts: 691 ✭✭✭ Uncle Mclovin


    It's fourth in market cap and pushing for 3rd. Can only be a good thing I imagine as other investors will get on board. Will be interesting to see what it can reach.

    If it gets added to Coinbase it will go huge I imagine. I was looking last night to see what Coinbase might add next but couldn't see anything on it other than that other coins will be added in 2018.


  • Registered Users Posts: 640 ✭✭✭ jonny_b


    Bitcoin cash being added to Coinbase in January afaik

    Debunked AFAIK but doesn't mean it's not possible anyway. Ripple is one of the obvious ones to be added to Coinbase I'd say.

    It's not. If Ripple got to $100 that would push it's market cap to almost 4 trillion. 8 times the current market cap of all coins combined.

    i'd be surprised if it got over $1


  • Registered Users Posts: 25,942 ✭✭✭✭ GreeBo


    i'd be surprised if it got over $1

    I can see it getting to $5 next year


  • Registered Users Posts: 519 ✭✭✭ splashuum


    HODL 😠Bought a fair amount at .22$

    no chance - there are way too many, maybe in 5 years time! Don't mention the burn per transaction, yes if it was adopted like SWIFT, they would need even more after anywhere from 2 - 5 years, what happens then? No way, just no way - however, i don't believe it (xrp) will be mass adopted, the ripple network will do well though. I don't trust the CEO either, sneaky!

    Need even more what? More Ripple?

    The last XRP will be destroyed after ten quadrillion transactions.

    We havent even destroyed a single one yet, not to mention that the amount of XRP destroyed will shrink as the value per coin increases.

    Also they have simulated mining by placing 55Bn XRP in escrow which will expire 1M every month.

    Im not saying its a guaranteed sure thing, but I dont agree with any of your reasons.


  • Registered Users Posts: 26 gazza87a


    I've been wanted to buy ripple last few weeks but still waiting on verification from bitstamp.. Then tried gatehub and bittrex.. still waiting.. How long does verification take..

    my error, didn't look into it more, i am indeed wrong with what i said , no way it even gets near $5 in 10 years time. Best of luck to you though, no doubt you bought in early so will make a nice profit if it reaches a $1 etc,
