Wow massive partnership. The biggest ever within the crypto space. Real and genuine use of XRP and not just a pipe dream. 

This is unbelievable and should drive the whole market forward. Been filling my bags like crazy with XRP and now hopefully it will come home to roost. Market is flying. 

Facebooks libra coin is possibly an extinction level event for dedicated payment businesses. In general though payment rails are boring, we have plenty of them.

facebookcoin will be the death of all alts.

Its probably going to be the death of XRP. Between libra on the consumer payment and  JP morgan coin for inter bank transers XRP is already dead, it just doesnt know it yet.

 Hey buddy. There isn't even a white paper for Libra yet. Let's see when it comes out. 

If it's another stable coin then it's pointless.

out of all the alts it will probably be the only one that will survive it maybe worth more than what the £ converts to on the day just like another currency.

 What's your definition of cryptocurrency champ? You may want to reassess it. 

I'm a software developer. It's a cryptocurrency. 

I’m a software developer too. It’s not. It might use some cryptography but the generally accepted definition of things that comprise a cryptocurrency include limited supply that cannot be created at will and decentralisation where anyone can be part of the network and help secure it, by validating transactions or contributing to the proof of work. XRP is fundamentally different to the typical cryptocurrency

Oh dear oh dear. Not a very good one then are you? You need to Google "what is the definition of a cryptocurrency?"

Your definition is flagrantly wrong. 

Interestingly you touch on other points unrelated to our cryptocurrency argument:

- decentralisation: no one controls xrp, it is open source. 

- it has a limited supply.

- proof of work has been shown to be fundamentally flawed. It is not the only method of ledger validation in the game.

Low risk even lower reward, $5k in Bitcoin in January and you have 3 x your return, 200%.  That's a proper risk reward ratio, 200% gainz for potential 100% loss.

Sorry, but this is wrong.

XRP is very much a cryptocurrency and one which refines the blockchain mechanism.

Facebook's new coin is a stable coin. No threat to anyone, just another walled garden.

I really hope my city mate will put the £10k he mentioned drunk. I will laugh, at least he wont lose anything, wont make anything either. Traditional money guys just don't get it.

I will make the final decision, I hold it, it's made me gainz since 2017, its not pegged to the $, it's a crypto, just a shill bankers one they can suspend your coins or inflated away to nothing if they wish.

We’ll have to agree to disagree.

Funny that a few crypto indexes specifically exclude xrp. They mustn’t be good at their jobs either I guess 😂

And whoops, I was actually meaning Nano (ex-Raiblocks) when I typed that. For some reason my brain leaped there.

XRP on the other hand, technology allows it to be called a cryptocurrency but agree with your other points.

Marky, I like you....buttttt i can't let this stand. Only exchanges can freeze their ious. No one has privilege on the xrp ledger. It's completely decentralised. XRP can never be frozen. 

Second point... what is this inflated away to nothing business? There is a fixed supply which burns every transaction. There will never be anymore.

Everthing in life is chance 

Its easy to comment with hindsight.

Red or black doubling your money in roulette is 48.65% chance on single zero table = bad bet.

Bitcoin doubling in price from the 2018 lows was bloody obvious = good bet.

Roulette can be profitable if you are prepared to sit for hrs. Red or black does require a small stake on zero as a backup. 

I have turned £200 into 7k in a week playing roulette. Timing and patience.

That’s £300 million in 4 weeks if you continue. Why are you spending time on hpc that could be spent playing roulette?

Unless you meant turning £200 into 7k xrp

I'm fairly sure you can't bet on zero.

My method, which has never failed yet, is to bet the minimum stake on red. If I win, I repeat, if I lose, I do it again, but double the stake. Repeat ad infinitum.

LOL greed will always prevail its part of human nature. such as not cashing in when you had the chance. 😄

There are visitors in these casino`s that play everyday to them it is a job, they win a small amount for the day say 500-1k and then leave repeat the same next day, only bring a set amount of cash and no cards and have self control.  i often overheard them saying things like today and yesterday paid for the holiday i just booked or a new car for the mrs on a particularly good week or month. 

it is mentally draining though and roulette is a game of chance, but the constant is when the spinner keep exerting the same amount of force on the wheel and it keeps hitting the same area, i always played from the remote table with a camera on the table that way the spinner does not know he just made some one £360 in one spin so is none the wiser about exerting more force when spinning the wheel to take away the neighbors coming up.  i watched someone win 20k on 5 spins playing like this  all on number 11😉
