They keep taking about the ripple's tech. Can I ask what tech is it other than being a centralized database?

Well, it's a centralized blockchain. Which suffers the counterparty risk of a centralized database, but has some of the positive aspects -- such as universal auditability -- of a blockchain.

Quote
Am I missing something? How is it going to make a difference over SWIfT?

SWIFT is slow, cumbersome, rent-seeking, not universally-auditable, and carries the counterparty risk of its centralization. Reimplementing SWIFT with XRP at its core would eliminate or vastly reduce several of these issues. So yes, you are missing something. The perspective of those entities for which SWIFT provides value - namely, financial institutions.

Quote
I mean the shit we get by using SWIFT has nothing to do with its tech at all. We stay away from it because it is centralized.

Sure, we do. But financial institutions? Not so much. So SWIFT isn't for you. Why would you expect it to cater to your desires, when it was built for large financial entities?

Quote
So why the fuck they act like ripple is solving a problem?

It is. See above.

Quote
Bitcoin solved it already by kicking the centralized shitheads out.

Until Bitcoin grows by a couple orders of magnitude, it is not a solution for the entities that actually use SWIFT.

Quote
Am I wrong?

Not wrong exactly. Just looking at the issue from an irrelevant viewpoint.

I mean, I have no need for an airlock. But to claim that 'we've already solved this problem - it's a hinged entry door' does little to solve the astronauts' problem of retaining breathable air within a spacefaring vessel.

Found this on twitter



Several years ago, I spent one full Bitcoin to buy an assorted handful of Zimbabwean bank notes. Notional value negligible. Lulz value in excess of the twenny bux or so that BTC was worth at the time.

True story.

Do I regret it? Hellz naaaw. Makes for instructive contrast.

The internet didn't have the internet to fuel its adoption.
But guess what does?
Bitcoin.

Bitcoin isn't so much as a get-rich-quick scheme, rather that fiat is a get-poor-slow scheme

No you're not. But this is ripple. Facts don't matter. Bots matter. xrparmy shills any article like the coindesk piffle and wahay 10% pump. Then Brad can sell more of his kleptocurrency

but this is turning into fake news about r3Corda supporting all cryptocurrencies to replace swift.
basically just any nonsense will do to pump their bags so they can get out

V8 is right. R3 Corda doesn’t really have anything to do with Ripple.  

The connections are as tenuous as this:  

*Swift is going to trial IPhones for its staff

*iPhones have an App Store.  

*Ripple has an App on the App Store which supports XRP.

@VB1001, Welcome to the club Smiley


Fucking hell, some of you guys get terrible weather. I’m here moaning about rain & 3 degrees celsius.

I think -25 with snow is way better than 3 degrees and rain, one can always wear proper clothing in the cold. Below -30 will start to get a bit chilly.



F*** it can't go there Roll Eyes

LOL wat. There's a thing called "hygiene" Cheesy

Almost all news articles that repeat the lie that crypto is an environmental problem can be traced back to one source:
long but good article on energy usage

I liked the recent talk by Saifedean Ammous as well regarding Bitcoin's energy consumption:
