Title: [ANN] Ripple is officially open-source! w/link
Post by: Stefan Thomas on September 26, 2013, 01:06:21 AM
Hey all!

It's my great pleasure to announce the release of the rippled p2p node source-code, the code that implements the Ripple protocol and powers the Ripple payment network. In conjunction with the open-sourcing we're also announcing that OpenCoin Inc. will change its name to Ripple Labs Inc. That latter part is mostly because the old name was confusing and required explanation. We hope the new name is a bit more self-explanatory - we're the place that Ripple came out of and we'll continue to experiment with and develop Ripple technology.

For those of you who are less technical, the significance of our announcement is that Ripple is not another altcoin. All the protocols and data formats have evolved independently of Bitcoin. Our consensus (https://ripple.com/wiki/Consensus) process uses peering (kinda like the Internet itself) instead of mining. The ledger is a data structure that describes the current state of the network as a merkle tree (this has the same effect as the merkle tree of unspent outputs (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=21995.0) proposals that have come up within the Bitcoin community.) The time between ledgers is adaptive (https://ripple.com/wiki/Continuous_Ledger_Close) rather than fixed. The current implementation supports holding deposit contracts - balances representating currencies other than the native currency. And we support the trading of these currencies in the network - as one atomic transaction, even across multiple conversions. The Ripple ledger is a general purpose data store and we plan to enable you to program the network freely via contracts (https://ripple.com/wiki/User:Justmoon/Contracts:_Overview).

It feels weird that it falls upon me to announce the open-sourcing of this code, since aside from a tiny fix here or there I wrote none of it. But I have worked closely with the people who did and they have completely changed my perspective on what's possible. I remember promoting Bitcoin to blank stares three years ago and now talking to bitcoiners about Ripple I often feel the same way. I hope that over the next year, starting from today, we can change that - and you'll be able to see Ripple as we do.

I want to address a few questions that I know will come up:

1. Forks

People will fork the network pretty much instantly (as soon as they can figure out our config files :D), so does that worry me re: job security? Of course. But that's the whole point of open-sourcing: It's one thing we can do to help keep us honest. I believe as long as we continue to live up to our promises, work hard and provide value to users, they will continue to use our network. And in doing so they're supporting our effort to build out the software and extend the network through any and all means available until all XRP are sold or given away.

I don't believe in closed-source, I don't believe in copyright, but I do believe in supporting the artists, the developers and entrepreneurs who make things happen. We have a growing team of people with big ideas and ambitious plans. So please consider using the original network so we can continue to develop amazing features and integrate every payment system on the face of the planet.

One final request for those planning to fork: If you do fork, please come up with a unique name for your network and a different currency code than XRP. A little search and replace won't kill you and you'll make life a lot easier and less confusing for both our users and your own.


2. Decentralization

Whether the code is open-source or not has nothing to do with whether Ripple is decentralized or not. As far as the original network is concerned we will continue to recommend our own validators for the time being. Running the core group of validators lets us close security holes much more quickly, which is very important at least until major feature development is completed. The last of these major features left is contracts.

So to recap, the general plan is to focus on contracts next and once their API is reasonably stable focus on building out the tools and testing needed to move to a fully distributed network topology.

That said, we do encourage interested parties to start running validators immediately - this is your chance to build a history and reputation as a reliable validator so people will later be more likely to add you to their UNLs (https://ripple.com/wiki/UNL).


3. Bugs

There will be bugs. If they are security-critical, please consider responsible disclosure through bugs@ripple.com. We also have a bounty program (https://ripple.com/bug-bounty/) for critical bugs.



Alright, that leaves only one thing.

Awesome! Thanks. It will be fun to see what happens with altripple networks of course but bitcoin has survived altcoins so it seems likely Ripple will survive altripples.

Very possible in this irrational crypto world. This is a world where MCXFees are trading on par with BTC.  I would assume that XRP will gain value even though it is worthless.

There is no mining or premining in ripple network. I don't understand why people still don't get it.

For sure some ideas will emerged from the work OpenCoin have done but going as far as OpenCoin is with seems difficult...

that's the idea.  they can try.  if you saw bibbit's post you can understand where i'm getting at.  ripple ain't bitcoin. sure, ripple needs the community, but there's more it needs.  way more. and i don't think a group of coders can deliver what ripplelabs is planning to deliver.

the XRP that power the protocol are premined. that's just a fact. i don't know enough about the protocol or ripples to have a more educated statement then that.

None because they know it's a bad idea to support Ripple.

Myth: Ripple is decentralized, or open sourcing Ripple will make it decentralized

Ripple was designed around centralization. The network consensus is built upon trust because they're Ripple Labs and they said so, instead of trust because of proof of work or expense of computational power like Bitcoin. The currency is built upon because gateways said so, instead of cryptographic proof or the decentralized mining process. Don't forget all XRPs (Ripples) were premined - all 100 billion of them. Ripple calculates their market capitalization with all 100 billion XRPs, despite the fact that the vast majority are not in circulation.

How would you kill a decentralized internet currency? By making a centralized one, complete with infinite money printing via gateways, where you don't have control of your money (gateways can arbitrarily levy fees on your transfers of IOUs) and much much more.

Before you buy into the 'promises' of Ripple, learn about what Ripple actually is (http://ripplescam.org). It's distributed, like having load balancers. It's not decentralized by any stretch of the word, and open sourcing code that forces centralization does not mean anything.

Yeah, the main problem I see with Ripple is that it's probably a lot more centralized than it appears, even ignoring the issues with XRP distribution and source availability.

AFAICT, Ripple requires that your UNL:
- Contain entities that won't cooperate to defraud you.
- Contain entities that themselves have good UNLs, and the entities in their UNLs must have good UNLs, etc.
- Form a "good network". A UNL containing just your friends wouldn't form a good network because you wouldn't be linked well-enough to the rest of Ripple. Your section of the network might get into a situation where its idea of history will never converge with the rest of the network's idea of history.

As a result, I believe that Ripple can really only be used reliably and securely if everyone has pretty much the same UNL. It's probably OK to remove or add a handful of nodes to your UNL, but at least a big portion of it probably needs to remain the same between users. So this ends up being a distributed system, but not a decentralized one. Whoever decides who's on the canonical UNL has a lot of power over the network. Also, people generally can't be "full nodes" in Ripple and participate in the consensus process because full nodes need to be online all the time and in someone's UNL.

Despite this, I wouldn't be surprised to see Ripple grow over the next few years. A lot of people think that it's decentralized and safe, and if they use the default centralized Ripple configuration it probably will be safe and stable in the short-term, and it'll be a lot cheaper to transact using Ripple than with Bitcoin. But it won't actually be as decentralized or as robust as Bitcoin, and legal issues may bring the whole thing down eventually.

Everyone is free to use Ripple as a payment/exchange service instead of a currency. Ripple isn't advertised as a currency.

How would you kill a decentralized internet currency? By making a centralized one
LOL
It's not centralized as much is Bitcoin for the trust needed for all his parts.
Is Bitcoin so fragile that can be killed from the free market? Who here is against the free market?

complete with infinite money printing via gateways, where you don't have control of your money (gateways can arbitrarily levy fees on your transfers of IOUs) and much much more.
It's the same trust that you give to exchanger now. BTC-e/Bitstamp/other can just steal all your money in few seconds.

It's built on the majority of gateways, as it is about majority of nodes/miners on Bitcoin.

Here you trust the majority of miners, instead of the majority of gateways.

That's not how Ripple's UNL works. It's based on validators, not gateways. In addition, Bitcoin is not based on the majority of nodes or miners, it is based on a majority of combined difficulty. Miners in addition have very limited influencing ability - miners can only change the order of transactions, and only that. Miners cannot inflate the currency. Miners cannot change core network rules (whereas OpenCoin can, as seen by account / trust line reserve requirements).

It's the same trust that you give to exchanger now. BTC-e/Bitstamp/other can just steal all your money in few seconds.

BitStamp cannot steal my 1GLadosEke BTC in a few seconds. Bitstamp can steal my rGLadosEke BTC in a few seconds.

I respectfully recommend only talking about what you know about :)

Please give an example how... it is NOT possible without compromising a lot of servers at the same time, more than what is needed for Bitcoin.

No, they provided code for the client already for a long time and have NOT advertised rippled as being Open Source until now.

https://ripple.com/wiki/Gateway_policies
https://ripple.com/wiki/Transit_Fees

A gateway is able to levy you a 100% transfer fee on their IOUs. Not only won't you be able to redeem the value they stand for, but you can't even transfer it.

You should spend more time reading the official ripple wiki, particularly:

Quote
Restricted issuance of IOUs
    The gateway may restrict the accounts to which it sends IOUs. For instance, it may limit sending to those account for which KYC requirements have been met.
Restricted holding of IOUs
    The gateway may restrict hold of its IOUs to pre-approved accounts. See Authorized accounts
IOU freezing
    Not implemented. The gateway may freeze an account's ability to transfer their IOUs.

Well, I did read that (probably some time before you did...) - if my gateway does this, I can just get my lawyer and sue them for breach of contract as they are a legal entity in my jurisdiction. Quite different than "Bitcoin is not legal tender. As with any Bitcoin service, any storage on inputs.io is at the users own risk. Exchange rates are estimates only.", huh?

Still you did not explain how they would steal my BTC.Bitstamp that are sitting at an address without me doing anything...

That's not how Ripple's UNL works. It's based on validators, not gateways.
You as gateway (everyone can be one) chose who are your validators. To be a validators you only need do run the Rippled, and be a trustful person.

If the majority of the Ripple gateway chose to NOT trust Opencoin validators, they simply can, and maintain the network active.
As much as Bitcoin users will stop to use/trust Bitcoin-Qt node for another one.

In addition, Bitcoin is not based on the majority of nodes or miners, it is based on a majority of combined difficulty.
Without the mining, gateways work as nodes/miners at the same time. They have the same functions for the safety of the network.

Miners in addition have very limited influencing ability - miners can only change the order of transactions, and only that.
They can also change the base of the protocol, and creating an hardfork.
It the same as the majority of the trustful gateway chose to disconnect from opencoin owned validators/gateways.

Miners cannot inflate the currency.
Neither can gateways, they can't inflate XRPs.
They have only power on the IOU that they gave you, only if you trust them.
When you look at Bitcoin on your Bitstamp wallet, they are also IOU, and they can steal them from you if they want.

Miners cannot change core network rules
Yes they can, just need to be the majority.
whereas OpenCoin can, as seen by account / trust line reserve requirements
They can as the Bitcoin dev team can, until the majority of the community trust them.

BitStamp cannot steal my 1GLadosEke BTC in a few seconds. Bitstamp can steal my rGLadosEke BTC in a few seconds.
They can steal them until your Bitcoin are on their pockets. When you use IOU Bitcoin from Bitstamp, they are like Bitstamp/BTC-e/Mtgox codes, so they can disable them if they want.
They won't be able to steal my IOU Therock Bitcoin if I don't trust them (give them the ability) to do it.

I respectfully recommend only talking about what you know about :)

The ONLY reason you want to shut down ripple is that you own A LOT OF BITCOINS and you are afraid that it's a threat to bitcoin value so you couldn't keep your bitcoin for several years without being worried either by tax or bitcoin value.

I hope you'll get sue by Ripple one day for such dumb accusation.

Actually gateways must set "restricted holding" the very first time they issue an IOU. So, existing gateways can't actually restrict or freeze anything.

False. You don't have to directly trust them.

When you look at Bitcoin on your Bitstamp wallet, they are also IOU, and they can steal them from you if they want.

I agree! Please debate this point to Sukrim who still disagrees that Bitstamp can steal ripple BTC IOUs?

Quote
Yes they can, just need to be the majority.

No they can't. Your client will automatically reject anything that doesn't follow it's hard coded rules, majority or no majority.

Quote
They can as the Bitcoin dev team can, until the majority of the community trust them.

OpenCoin Inc's Ripple design and change process is very much more internal compared to the Bitcoin core dev team. Just take a look yourself.

If a government knocks on Ripple Lab's door and mandates restricted holding, do you think code will stop them? With Bitcoin, people won't follow the fork. With Ripple, you're already following the fork.

You're forgetting OpenCoin validators may simply refuse to broadcast transactions.

The second is totally pointless, as everyone can choose the validators that they like best.

You continue, by the way, confusing a payment system with a currency like bitcoin, and ignoring the benefits that a distributed market could give to bitcoin itself.

I'm not aware of how it is possible to switch from a US-owned ARIN block to another country in just 1 minute, because ARIN reassigning a IP block used by Amazon AWS to a 'friendly country' (Russia? Iran? Syria?) in the timespan of 1 minute when the propagation will take longer is.. dubious.

http://ripple.com/ripple.txt

54.225.112.220: US, United States

184.73.226.101: US, United States
23.23.201.55: US, United States

Next?

Saying everyone can choose the validators that they like best is a misleading claim. If you don't choose OpenCoin in your UNL, you will not get the same transactions as any other ripple user. This point is elaborated in more detail in RippleScam.org

You are not asking your question in ripple forum cause you know JoelKatz would answer all of them. Do your critism there, ask for answers, then if they can't answer i'll follow you ;)

Again: www.ripple.com/forum

since you are not doing that , it's just because you are spreading lies.

Saying everyone can choose the validators that they like best is a misleading claim. If you don't choose OpenCoin in your UNL, you will not get the same transactions as any other ripple user. This point is elaborated in more detail in RippleScam.org
This is completely wrong and you would see that if you would actually run a rippled.

To convert XRP to BTC one actually just needs to use the Bitstamp bridge - just send money to a BTC address from within the official client and it will automatically trade on the Ripple market and send it on the Blockchain for you. I do not know if Bitstamp will stop this in the future for AML reasons, though there is the chance that others might provide similar services.

If you don't have ripple UNLs (direct or indirect) you will get different ledgers.

When did I talk about Ripple bridges? Also keep in mind bitstamp is hard coded in the ripple web client.

The bridge comment was in response to shakezola.

Of course you'll have at least an indirect connection to opencoin, as they ran the main ledger until now. If you put only third party nodes there, you'll still end up on the main one, just like with bitcoin where everyone ends up on satoshi's chain.

No. If you only put third party ones in, and the third party ones do not add OpenCoin, you will end up with a diff ledger when someone tries a double spend - broadcasting one to Open coin and one to your 3rd party validators.

nice. Now lets see a fork with a better idea than 100% pre mined. I would be interested in that.

There is no mining or premining in ripple network. I don't understand why people still don't get it.

For sure some ideas will emerged from the work OpenCoin have done but going as far as OpenCoin is with seems difficult...

nono. anyone can try.  that's the reason the code is open source.

Of course. But i'm curious to see those people claiming things better than ripple will appear in no time ...

You'd need to remove the UNL aspects too to make it decentralized. Mining can work without high orphans and a 10s/ledger system - each PoW hit entitles you to the next ledger updates until another PoW hit for example which are not tied to ledger updates, with the reward distributed among the next ledgers to disincentize stalling.

No. If you only put third party ones in, and the third party ones do not add OpenCoin, you will end up with a diff ledger when someone tries a double spend - broadcasting one to Open coin and one to your 3rd party validators.

You can easily test this yourself - just run e.g. a handful of independent servers, put their NodeIDs in each UNL and require a quorum of 3/5 on each. You will not be able to double-spend at all and also won't see any double-spend attempts, you will end on a fully forked ledger with 100 billion unspent XRP in the genesis account. Any double-spend attempts towards your or mainline ledgers will fail, as you have a completely different XRP and trust distribution in your ledgers, meaning your 5 servers will regard every transaction on mainline Ripple as being fake and on the other hand any transaction that is valid on your fork is seen as invalid on mainline Ripple.

This is just like starting Bitcoin with a different genesis block or after a hard fork. Transactions on one block chain will be viewed as completely fake from the other part of the fork and vice versa.

Just as the consensus in Bitcoin is: The main chain is the one starting from Satoshi's genesis block AND has the checkpoints which are embedded in bitcoin-qt (as there might be somebody else starting from Satoshi's block), it is the same in Ripple where the main ledger chain is the one started in Dec. 2012. Of course in both cases it is trivial to start an alternate reality - calling it "centralized" because of this is a bit much in my opinion though, as this would apply to Bitcoin in the same way for example...

So, one point to the builders and sharers, one poke in the eye to the haters!  

"What will be the most interesting about the open-sourced code may well be the consensus algorithm. If it works, consensus is arguably a major improvement over any of the “mining”-like algorithms that Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies can offer; it both completely removes Bitcoin’s “wasted electricity” problem and makes it much more difficult to successfully execute an attack against the network. However, the main objection is, will it actually work? Up until now, the process has been well-documented on the Ripple wiki in text, diagrams and a video. However, the description has been high-level, and the documentation has not been in a formal form suitable for mathematical or cryptographic analysis. Now, we have access to the source code, which is literally as formal a description of the consensus process that one can get. For the first time, actual cryptographers outside of Ripple Labs will be able to create mathematical models out of the code, run simulations or prove theorems on it and see if it actually lives up to the hype."

At bitstamp buy the minimum amount to fund your wallet, i.g. 50 XRP reserve plus 12.5 XRP for trust line. Then deposit them into you ripple wallet. Then deposit some USD into your ripple wallet thorough bitstamp or other gateway. Then you have several options to buy ripples from the wallet client. You choose which one suits your needs better.

There are two ways to buy through bistamp. The first is on Buy/Sell -> Ripple, where you buy at the price bitstamp manually sets. Its more expensive than the market price, you should only buy the minimum ($2 or $3 USD) to fund the reserve for a new ripple wallet, if you don't already have XRP from a giveaway. With the reserve XRP met (~100 XRP), your ripple wallet can grant a trust line (either BTC or USD, each currency is a separate trust line). With a trust line to bitstamp's issuer address (rvYAfWj5gh67oV6fW32ZzP3Aw4Eubs59B), you can withdraw on bitstamp.net Withdrawal -> Ripple. Choose the same currency of your trust line (BTC and USD have the most liquidity) and paste in your Ripple address (click "Receive" in your ripple wallet).

The market price for XRP is different on each order book. Each gateway (aka issuer) has separate order books on ripple, one per currency. Generally the best price will be for the gateway with the most liquidity, so usually on ripple USD.bitstamp and BTC.bitstamp order books (USD.snapswap is usually more expensive).

You can see a chart of the bitstamp order books on xrp.webr3.org, USD/XRP (http://xrp.webr3.org/usd-xrp) and BTC/XRP (http://xrp.webr3.org/btc-xrp)

That's an interesting question. My guess is individuals aren't obliged to any compliance just like miners aren't, but most important gateways will be entities which should be. It's a little too soon to ask these questions, and if it takes as long for ripple to get noticed as for bitcoin it wouldn't be for another two years till ripple is where Bitcoin is now.  

The most straight forward answer would be if a gateway issues his own IOUs in one currency it must be compliant to the laws of the country issuing that currency.

there may be a better place to ask this but sorry im not sure where it is. how do gateways deal with the legal ramifications of issuing securities. as i understand it this is how ripples decentralized exchange works. a person issues promises to meet a condition and those promises trade on a market until someone submits one of them to the issuer to be honoured. do i have this right? do you guys comply with sec? do you not think that you are obliged to? or do you think that you are but try to fly under the radar?

That's an interesting question. My guess is individuals aren't obliged to any compliance just like miners aren't, but most important gateways will be entities which should be. It's a little too soon to ask these questions, and if it takes as long for ripple to get noticed as for bitcoin it wouldn't be for another two years till ripple is where Bitcoin is now.  

The most straight forward answer would be if a gateway issues his own IOUs in one currency it must be compliant to the laws of the country issuing that currency.

thanks em that was a helpful reply. I'm tentatively unblocking you.

There is more information on forks here, especially the second one, splash, looks promising but there is little new information on it.

Thanks, interesting.

As usual, mah87's reply is retarded. If you claim your thing is open source, you have to make everything possible for it to be forked, this includes proper documentation, releasing all needed tools, etc.

You think forking things are easy, THIS is retarded.

Well, while it is easy to fork Ripple right now (just as Bitcoin in its inception) the network effect is still strong with RippleLabs.
While the technical part (rippled, the client, ripplecharts...) ist just copy-paste, you would have a harder time to convince people to actually accept and use your fork.

There is no "claim", there is PROOF it is open source:
https://github.com/ripple/ <-- all code for several different projects is in there, all under a permissive license. Also you are posting in the very announcement thread for this stuff... why do you speak of "claims"?

Releasing non-working source code, or incomplete source code, then claiming it's open source for publicity is common practice in the industry.
Which is why I was asking for examples of working forks. And I got an answer. So please, stop being retarded or at least learn how software works.
Rippled compiles, runs, builds history and behaves as advertised.

Could you give an example for this "common practice" where a company claims their software is fully open source but it actually is not working or incomplete?

Also I stopped being retarded, thanks for the nice reminder. ::)

Anyone can fork Gnome, and, say, call it Dwarf.
The documentation and the tools to build it are there. And you can run it on your system.

Please, try to learn how software works before opening your mouths, learn to read, and stop being such retards. You guys are really testing my patience (besides mah87 the serial scammer where I didn't expect anything more).
Really, Ripple satisfies my criteria of being open source, and you guys are still nitpicking on things you obviously don't understand.
I perfectly know how software works, so I can easily understand how a huge amount of work would be to replicate something as the ripple network.

It will not happen simply because it makes no sense to do that: 1:1 clones are worthless, just like for Bitcoin.

Unfortunately there is no real released fork of Ripple so far, NWO seems to have decided he wants to write his own software, Splash so far has just a thread with intentions and nothing more and ProtoShares wnats to implement consensus but that's only the double spend prevention part.

It would be possible of course, depending on what you want to do, you might be wise to stay back for a while longer until rippled gets a bit more stable and the refactoring efforts are completed. They recently hired a guy for developer relations though, so if someone reads this and thinks of starting something, please contact RippleLabs by all means!

So again, as long as someone can't run an identical Ripple network, it's not open source. Thank you all!

If there is no working fork yet, it does not mean that nobody can make it. RL released sources of rippled just several month ago, making ripple completely open source. A fork can not pop up by itself overnight. In first place, somebody should be willing to spend time and efforts on it.

Making fork is a waste of time. If someone have free time, it is better to spend it either on improving ripple by providing third party software on top of ripple protocol, or on developing true ripple competitor with better features.

Nobody can run an identical Bitcoin network either, as that would be a hardfork of the block chain. "Bitcoin" is defined as the Satoshi block chain. You can however more or less easil change a few things in the code (checkpoints...), create a new genesis block and run a new network with the same rules as Bitcoin.

It's the same with Ripple - you can compile and run a node in the OpenCoin ledger chain or you can create your own (even easier than with Bitcoin, as there are no checkpoint hashes afaik.). This would (just like a "Bitcoin2" with a different genesis block) however be a full hard fork of the current ledger, so you (just as with Bitcoin) won't be able to transfer anything to/from people using the mainline network.

If you want to go further, you can also change rules inside Ripple too (e.g. start with 100 instead of 100 billion XRP, create new ledgers every 3.14 seconds...) and so on. Calling something not "open source" (which is a quite well defined term - rippled even is "free software") because nobody bothered to do that is a bit... strange.

Here are some "forks" (mostly working branches from developers for the mainline implementation though): https://github.com/ripple/rippled/network

And the github notion of "fork" is not what I meant either, obviously.
 
Fucking fuck. The level of stupidity here. I know, this is Bitcointalk, and worse, the Altcoin subforum. I should expect it.

Let me explain it in another way for you retards. There is only one "open source" criteria: "Is it possible to altcoin Ripple?" Now please state Yes or No, explain why, but stop bullshitting on things you obviously do not understand.

The answer is yes. This is so obvious that people are going beyond this thought which is far more interesting.

https://github.com/ripple

You can setup anything and start your own Nipple network if you want.

To explain further, look at what the NXT developer did when he released the source code. He said it was released voluntarily with flaws. Was that open source? Fuck no.

Another example: https://github.com/riecoin/riecoin/tree/9caaa5e7e15d778d9aadce58de4430c012492fff this is not open source
But this is: https://github.com/riecoin/riecoin/tree/bcf104b1e7fc1d0be6dbc8cd60b3621dbfa0b839

OMG!

You, fucking retard, do not understand that "open source" means that software source codes are distributed under open license, which is the case with ripple. And if you would not be a fucking retard, you would be able to go to github, clone ripple code, and start your own ledger. There are people, who are not as stupid as yourself, retard, and they are doing this right now.

I'll just skip over the profanity you posted and give you the answer you seem ignorant about for quite a while now:

Yes, it is perfectly possible to start a new ledger independently from the one that OpenCoin started ~1 year ago. In fact, that's even the default(!) mode if you just run rippled with no further switches...
This is also clearly stated in the original announcement from half a year ago.

Your definition of "open source" is by the way not one that is shared by many people and I would recommend to find a different term for that specific requirement of yours ("forkability"?), as "open source" as well as "free software/FLOSS" are actually quite well defined and do not mean what you try to underline with your expletives.

Look, this is the question I have been asking right from the start, don't try to act smart by calling me ignorant of it; of course, because I am asking the question.
From the OP:
I want to address a few questions that I know will come up:

1. Forks

People will fork the network pretty much instantly (as soon as they can figure out our config files :D), so does that worry me re: job security? Of course. But that's the whole point of open-sourcing: It's one thing we can do to help keep us honest. I believe as long as we continue to live up to our promises, work hard and provide value to users, they will continue to use our network. And in doing so they're supporting our effort to build out the software and extend the network through any and all means available until all XRP are sold or given away.

I don't believe in closed-source, I don't believe in copyright, but I do believe in supporting the artists, the developers and entrepreneurs who make things happen. We have a growing team of people with big ideas and ambitious plans. So please consider using the original network so we can continue to develop amazing features and integrate every payment system on the face of the planet.

One final request for those planning to fork: If you do fork, please come up with a unique name for your network and a different currency code than XRP. A little search and replace won't kill you and you'll make life a lot easier and less confusing for both our users and your own.

I'm digging thru the code trying to get what it is about. It will take a lot of time to get understanding of the sources without a good manual. Is there any btw?
Besides the README files and comments in the code, a more high level view and understanding is possible by reading respective articles on the wiki: https://ripple.com/wiki/Main_Page

(By the way, you might want to correct your trust rating to mah87 - forgot to check that box?).
Nope, he "earned" that rating fair and square by spamming me. See the linked thread in the rating. I don't think that this warrants a "This rating is negative -- the person is not trustworthy:" tag, however people are free to see my opinion of this and act accordingly. I'll just go ahead and give you a similar one...

It is the question for me.
Because Ripple is not interesting for crypto enthusiasts due that this coin not decentralized. Ripple interesting for banks? Yes, but for test purposes only, I don't think that big banks want to based payments on the blockchain which fully controlled by third party. Now Ripple it is the victim of crypto market manipulations. My view that investing to the Ripple is more high risk than investing to most of decentralized coins.

ripple is just as bad as bitcoin. Same old problems just like bitcoin takes forever for the money to transact and then it says invalid. Then it says you need to leave 20 ripple on every wallet you ahve. Thats what like 40 bucks just to have a wallet with ripple on an exchange and another 40 bucks to have your own wallet. What a bunch of horse shi%. No longer interested in ripple its just as stupid as any other crypto currency with all the problems they have. Until this stuff can be simplified and transact with in seconds something ripple can't do it will never work. I will wait for visa to come out iwth its own system and see if they make a crypto coin out of it and see how fast that transacts. Until something works properly i wont be touching any of these cryptos. They just don't work and have to many problems to have any interest in investing in them. Maybe a big company like amazon will make something that actually works. Until then gl waiting for your transactions to go through hrs or days later and think you have a great investment.

ripple has caused a lot of heartburn to its investors... at the current price, it is still down about 67% from its peak.
it has been trading in a small range for the past five days and is not finding much interest among the buyers.
however, we believe that if the XRP/USD pair breaks out of the 20-day EMA and the downtrend line, we can expect it to attract further buying, which can propel it towards the overhead resistance of $1.74.
therefore, we need to wait for a breakout above the 20-day EMA before buying.

They also have not such positive news: https://cryptoslate.com/ripple-security/

Ripple was denied access to two major U.S. cryptocurrency exchanges, Coinbase and Gemini, due to regulatory concerns.

They need to increase capitalization to increase XRP price. But this is impossible without access to huge exchanges.
