... or something like that ... it confused me ... it started sounding like bogus to me and I quickly lost interest.

So, ok this is too complicated for you. It doesn't mean the technology behind ripple is not better than bitcoin... Damn , anyone who read what ripple is about and understand how it works ?


I understood how the original ripple worked. XRP is what confused me and sounded like bogus. I didn't bother reading into 'XRP' that much.

What was wrong with the original model of ripple which was debt-based and didn't have a unit with a volatile value which could be pumped and dumped?

if ripplescam.org is misrepresenting facts, and the official ripple site is omitting them, then where are users expected to get the info?

XRP's value is like a postage stamp, a transaction fee. It could be a good stepping stone to integrate with banking but its already getting left behind in that and many of its features can be handled with Bitcoin contracts.

except that bitcoin contracts don't exists and ripple is actually implementing contracts and features that ethereum are still trying to define ...

everything is on the official website and wiki... The point is that ripple is not aiming the dumb bitcoin community anymore... People like pump and dump and that's it.

If you want to understand ripple you need to make some efforts, otherwise you just wait few months that it goes mainstream then some bloomberg guy will explain it to you the same way you learned about bitcoin...

5 people waiting for mainstream media to tell them they are wrong. This is crazy how people are reluctant to see innovation... You are reacting the same that people rejecting and mocking bitcoin in 2011-2012

What? I didn't say any of that.  Point is they learned about Bitcoin by actually using it for a real product/service, doing real business, and fulfilling a real technological need where the technology was actually used - not a fantasy. Also, it started as a grassroots movement, with a community of technical people that were passionate about the technology, and didn't need to be promoted in the media.

Bitcoin elegantly engineers the need for trust out of transactions; ripple does quite the opposite.

Wake me up when they do something about the trust issue. Contracts as part of the message passing protocols is just an agreed format, as it stands contracts can be as simple as an agreement between parties in the message field and stored in the blockchain.

what about trust issue ?

contracts are not about writing something in the blockchain, it's about executing transaction through the blockchain...

Here is the beginning of what it is gonna be implemented in the next few months
