This Company Will Pay You $100,000 to Give Up Your Smartphone for a Year
By Spooky on December 14th, 2018 Category: News


Enhanced water company Vitaminwater recently launched a contest challenging entrants to give up their smartphones and tablets for a whole year. That’s a tough thing to do in this day and age, but the Coca Cola-owned company is ready to make it worth your while by putting up a $100,000 prize.

Vitaminwater’s #nophoneforayear challenge requires entrants to go a full 365 days without using a smartphone. That means giving up their own phone and tablet as well as agreeing not to use anyone else’s handhelds either. The selected person will have to sign a contract committing to no smartphone usage for the duration of the contest, and if they are found to have adhered to the strict rule for the duration of the contract, they will be rewarded with $100,000. Sounds easy enough, but first you have to convince the company that you’re the right person for the job.


To enter this unusual contest, you first have to a photo to Twitter or Instagram telling Vitamin Water why you need a break from your smartphone, and use the hashtags #nophoneforayear and #contest. Submitted entries will be judged based on creativity, brand relevance, humor and quality. You have until January 8 to enter the contest, and the company will announce the selected participant on January 22.

It’s worth pointing out that the selected person will not be required to go completely phone-free. In fact, Vitaminwater will provide them with a “1996 era mobile phone” complete with a monthly plan for voice communication only.

Vitaminwater has confirmed that the contest is not some cruel prank, and brand manager Natalia Suarez told CNBC that it was simply an ingenious way to challenge people to do something interesting with their time.

“We don’t think there’s anything more boring than mindlessly scrolling through your phone, and this is an opportunity to take that stance against routine and give someone $100,000 to do something uniquely awesome with their time,” Suarez said.

You’re probably wondering how Vitaminwater plans on checking if the selected person actually respected their end of the deal. The complete list of rules has not yet been released, but the company did mention that the chosen participant will have to take a lie detector test before being awarded the $100,000 prize.

Some people couldn’t go a single day without checking their smartphones, and a year is a really long time, so Vitaminwater is also offering a consolation prize of $10,000 if the person selected for their contest goes at least 6 months without using a smartphone.

Oh, and if you’re looking at your handheld wondering if it qualifies as a smartphone, Vitaminwater provides a simple way to check: “if texting is a pleasant experience or you can get on the internet, it’s probably a smartphone”.

18  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Your chance to vote on Rippels XRP best feature on: February 16, 2018, 02:25:08 PM
The 1-O-1 of crypto is:
  • Person to Person interaction
  • Decentralization
  • Blockchain technology
  • Financial Freedom

Person to Person
Peer - Peer dealings without the unnecessary dangerous money garbing middleman.

Decentralization:
One company sells all xrp and

3/4 of all XRP held by 4 Entities
Ripple Inc holds 61.3 billion XRP,
Chris Larsen holds 6.7 billion XRP as well as a 17% stake in the company (17% = 10.4 B XRP, total personal 17.1 Billion XRP)
CEO Brad Garlinghouse, who owns a 6.3% stake (3.8 Billion XRP) in the company and owns additional XRP tokens
Jeb McCaleb  has 5.3 billion XRP (used to be 9 Billion XRP)
Chris' foundation has 7 Billion
Arthur 3 Billion
David Schwartz, Dev was gifted 1 Billion XRP Tokens for being incompetent and loose part of the Database (Ledger 0 - 32569, its worthy a Billion bonus)
How many Billions Karl-Theodor Maria Nikolaus Johann Jacob Philipp Franz Buhl-Freiherr von und zu Guttenberg owns is unknown.


Blockchain technology:
Blockchains to not lose data, Ripples distributed legder database has lost ledger entries 0 - 32569 for ever
Blockchains circulating supply cannot be lower, xrp from time to time had lower supply than previous highs
Blockchains have no in-build kill switch, Ripples xrp does "The freeze protocol extension gives gateways the ability to…freeze funds issued to a particular user. Frozen funds may only be sent back to the gateway who issued them. The global freeze feature allows a gateway to freeze all balances issued by it."


Financial Freedom:
Being in charge of your own finances and not depend on 3rd parties like banks or Ripple Inc to lock your account whenever they see fit. Blockchain tech you can not just lock, individual entries or the whole distributed ledger database which ripple operates.

=====================================================================================


Hard core Facts:
  • Fact, Genesis date is 2013-Jan-01 03:21:10  What in a drunken new years celebration the tech guy decided to create xrp?
  • Fact is xrp genesis ledger is Number 32570 (The beginning of the database is lost for ever)
  • Fakt is over 50% of circulating supply at the time got released on August 2014 at a key stroke and price or volume did not move.
  • Fact is you will never own  XRP it will always belong to Ripple Inc. Just like a Casino token, chip, jeton always belongs to the casino you my take it home.....but its not your. (If you have Bitcoin private key its yours.)
  • Fact, XRP is centralized digital money
  • Fact Ripple Inc. can freeze anyone's funds and have done so with Jeb Mcaleb
  • Fact Ripple Inc. can reverse funds
  • Fact is that the circulating supply has decreased from time to time (laughable).
  • Fact, bribery is rampant at Ripple Inc as the company gifts XRP's to partners, friends, banks....
  • Fact, Ripple Inc has contingency plan to become a software company if xrp fails
  • Fact is xrp Marketcap is wrong
  • Fact decentralized coins don't have CEO, ................
  • Fact, Banks dont need or use XRP
  • Fact, it is not a coin
  • Fact, contractual agreements only affect Ripple Inc and have nothing to do with XRP.
  • Fact, from Ripples technical operations a single xrp works as well as 100 000 000 000 xrp
  • Fact, it has been hacked in the past
  • Fact, the criminals have been previously been fined (you cant fine a blockchain)
  • Fact, XRP carries heavy overheads form Ripple Manager and Investors
  • Fact Ripple employs pays shills operatives.
  • Fact, Ripple Inc. uses a known criminal as advisor („Karl-Theodor Maria Nikolaus Johann Jacob Philipp Franz Buhl-Freiherr von und zu Guttenberg“)
  • To have ripple account you must have at least x number XRP for it to be functioning. This is akin to tax required in the nation's fiat currency to artificially create use cases for that currency.
  • Fact, a single company is selling all XRP, decentralization is a joke

Ripple  = a drink for alcoholics and the destitute.

=====================================================================================


The emission/release/new supply aspect

Fiat like about ~2% annually, price is heavy manipulated by increase/decrease xrp supply.

======================================================================================


The sponsoring of the needy

Jeb McCaleb  still has 5.3 billion XRP and is allowed to sell by court order $10000 worth of XRP per week. A nice weekly paycheck by any standard.
So this week he is selling can sell (10000 / $0.80) = 12500 XRP
5.3 billion / 12 500 = 424000 weeks. So it will take him 8131 Years to dump all his XRP at this weeks price.

Just for the entertainment, if price is $5 he can sell 2000 XRP a week
5.3 Billion / 2000 = two million six hundred fifty thousand weeks or 50821.91 Years of dumping by Jeb McCaleb and his grand,grand,grand,grand,grand...grand children.

Will reckless XRP gamblers grand,grand,grand,grand,grand...grand kids still send the weekly paychecks to Jebs family tree?

Luckely Chris Larsen holding 17.1 Billion XRP, 6.7 billion XRP as well as a 17% stake (10.4 B xrp) in the company
and Brad Garlinghouse, who owns a 6.3% stake (3.8 Billion XRP) in the company and owns additional XRP tokens  have no court restrictions and can dump much faster. They should be done with dumping within 5000 years
Chris' foundation has has 7 Billion and
Arthur 3 Billion
David Schwartz, Dev was gifted 1 Billion XRP Tokens for being incompetent and loose part of the Database (Ledger 0 - 32569, its worthy a 1B bonus)
How many Billions Karl-Theodor Maria Nikolaus Johann Jacob Philipp Franz Buhl-Freiherr von und zu Guttenberg has is unknown.

=====================================================================================


The price
The artificial price backed by absolutely nothing, reminiscent to the diamond scam.
Most buy XRP in hope to find a bigger fool to dump on hard if price gets pumped.


======================================================================================

The enormous over-evaluation

As of March 23 2018 there are:
          4,063,575 unreleased/unsold Bitcoins. With a price of $8966 it costs $ 36,434,013,450 to buy all remaining.
 60,898,498,211 unreleased/unsold Ripple XRP. With a price of $0.66 it costs $ 40,193,008,819 to buy all remaining.

Additionally to the unreleased xrp come the Billions of "circulating" but unsold xrp like Jebs stash or others.

======================================================================================

The truth about ripple
https://cryptoyoda1338.wordpress.com/2018/01/04/the-truth-about-ripple/
Freedom loving world does not need this enslavement tool.

=====================================================================================

What it really is
Fraud, Scam, Sham, Shenanigans, Horseplay, Monkey business, Trickery.....


=====================================================================================
Only a matter of time before the whole shenanigans ends.
A good laugh is the negative numbers in the database supply history.
So in 2018 on average it inflated by 5 630 072 xrp daily and in in the entire history 8 million where spent (destroyed).
Almost as much was given away in Bribes as sold, clear as day marketcap is wrong.

On top of it XRP is not used by Banks or anyone else except by Ripple Inc in 0.0001% of cases to exchange junk1 to junk2. Volume or liquity does not matter in this case because no-one is exchanging junk1 for junk2 in a meaningful volume otherwise it would not be junk1 or junk2 in the first place.

By contractual agreement R3 is buying XRP for $0.0085 USD a piece for the next few years (which is the real XRP price as agreed by Ripple and R3).

Now lets wait 2 or 3 post when the next one starts to think and believe again. Believing is some reminisce from the middle ages.

20  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Ripples XRP Shenanigans Observation on: July 14, 2017, 09:18:28 AM
Ripple Inc. selling XRP which have cost next to nothing to produce, that is a rip-off (scam).

Almost 80% of all Bitcoins have been mined and available to trade freely. Anyone can mine this revolutionary blockchain tech and get coins.
Ripple's Distributed Ledger Database XRP token is entirely sold by a centralized company.
Of the ~38% circulating supply, most of the free gifted xrp given to banks and partners are locked by contractual agreement.

No Bank will ever buy XRP's, only sell the free gifted xrp.
The only purpose of XRP is to transfer money out of XRP 'investors' pocked and into Ripple investors pocked.

On a technical side, XRP is presumably the only Token/Coin with the genesis block not being 0, genesis ledger is Number 32570. It proves it is not a decentralized blockchain.
You can not 'loose' part of a decentralized blockchain.

This is what happens when central database servers running out of disk space
Ledger 0 to 32569 lost for ever and Genesis at 32570

by contrast proper revolutionary new world changing blockchain technology
Genesis  at 0



  • The fact is that xrp genesis ledger is Number 32570 and not Number 0 and consequently can not possible be a decentralized blockchain as it would be impossible to loose part of a chain. Loosing part of the data is possible on a ordinary centralized databases.
    It is claimed that all this happened will the Database was still company intern only, no actually securities lost. Why data got overwritten, incompetent dev. lack of funding, carelessness...? Begs the question would an intelligent dev. not have started a new Database and not move ahead with a faulty one.  
  • Fakt is over 50% of circulating supply got released on August 2014 at a key stroke and price or volume did not move.
  • Fact is that the circulating supply has decreased from time to time (laughable).
  • Fact is the company gifts XRP's to strategic partners, friends or bribe sites like coinmarketcap to list the database amongst crypto-currencies
  • Fact is 95% of coins are not freely available to trade.
  • Fact is a handful of entities hold 33 Billion out of 38 Billion circulation but not free available tokens
  • Fact, Ripple Inc has contingency plan to become a software company if xrp fails
  • Fact is Marketcap is wrong, the real Marketcap is less than 1 Billion
  • Fact, Banks dont need xrp and create there one DLT based database token. (Project Ubin)
  • Fact, it is 100% centralized as one company and one company only controls the XRP sales
  • Fact, it is not a coin
  • Fact, contractual agreements only affect Ripple and have nothing to do with xrp.
  • Fact, from Ripples technical operations a single xrp works as well as 100 000 000 000 xrp
  • Fact, 'Hodor7777' the Ripple investor continually fleeces xrp investors by convincing them their money is better stored in his pocket
  • Fact, Distributed Ledger Technology is a type of database that is spread across multiple sites, countries or institutions
  • Fact, it has been hacked in the past
  • Fact, Dev was gifted 1 Billion XRP Tokens (what makes him so special, the proven fact of incompetence) plus he obviously receive regular wages
  • Fact, the criminals have been previously been fined (you cant fine a blockchain)
  • Fact, XRP carries to much heavy overheads in form of Ripple Manager bonuses at the expense of xrp security (how much was spent on xrp security last financial year?)
  • Fact, Ripple Inc. investors live i expensive New York areas, XRP investors in the slums paying for the Ripple Manager bonuses
  • Fact, Full Name* the Ripple Inc advisor is a proven fraud
  • What does happen to XRP price when Ripple Inc faces hostile takeover?
  • When Bitcoins blockchain tech succeeds (and it will) Dinosaur banks will become extinct and with it Ripple Inc.
    The whole idea of Bitcoin to be your own Bank, private or corporate entity

Full Name* = „Karl-Theodor Maria Nikolaus Johann Jacob Philipp Franz Buhl-Freiherr von und zu Guttenberg“






Only with a central database can the circulating supply become less, on revolutionary blockchain tech this is not possible (unless you publicly 'burn' a few million token)
Clear case of market manipulation Marketcap = Price * Circulation Supply (Wrong anyway as not all free available)


What will happen when the other 90% become freely available?
