News confirmed. Li Feng is one of my best friends.

------------

Gold is not published by any centralized organization, just as is bitcoin (what gold is different from bitcoin is that gold is in fact unlimited). In this way, I think bitcoin is gold 2.0.

But with only gold and without bank, without note, the economy is constrained. That's why we need some center in a decentralized world.

I think most people tend to swing from one extreme to another.

In fact, a decentralized world with many power limited centers is ideal.

open coin = ripple?

Rep Thread: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=381041
If one can not confer upon another a right which he does not himself first possess, by what means does the state derive the right to engage in behaviors from which the public is prohibited?

Yes. That's quite interesting. The amount (est $200K) shows it's more about a toe in the door and a vote of confidence. But still, the markets should pay attention to that...

OpenCoin holds around a Billion dollars worth of Ripples (XRP) at current rates, so it would seem to be a good company to invest in. Smiley

In fact just a few weeks ago the value of all outstanding XRP was MORE than the value of all current Bitcoins that have been mined.

(I sold 7,100 XRP for 1 BTC which makes their stash of XRP worth at that point over 14,000,000 Bitcoins!)

Should I get out of my measly 35k XRP?

Hmm... Or will it go up?

OpenCoin will be distributing loads more XRP before the end of the month, devaluing yours.

The company promised that those who signed up before May 9 would get given free ripples by the end of the month.

Not if they just give 500 or so to each person...then they will want to buy more and that means more buying pressure..  It's supply and demand.  They will be increasing supply but demand as well.

I do agree with this but the same with Bitcoin.  It will be back below 80 in a few months, if not below 50.

They are investing the biggest alt coin 100% pre-mine scam in existence. They make money by printing them out of thin air (XRP). People are buying 10k XRP for 1 Bitcoin, and OpenCoin have 100B or more XRP.

Wait are they really called "Opencoin"? Is it meant to be ironic?

How can I mine some of these 'open' XRPs then?

You don't mine them, you can beg some from OpenCoin Inc when they are feeling generous.
