It is Ripple vs Bitpay, not Ripple vs Bitcoin. Finally an article to elaborate.

BitPay has managed to become one of the most successful businesses in the digital currency space, starting in 2011 from nothing, to today boasting over 28,000 merchants worldwide. Yet, even with such success, is it possible that BitPay could soon be facing irrelevancy and subsequent extinction, at the hands of Ripple and it’s distributed exchange?

There has been loads of positive press coming out about Ripple in the last few weeks.

Clearly I'm the whale of GLD. Why does it matter if this is my alt account?

I have recently discovered Ripple and I wanted to post a positive article about it.

You're one of those people who would consider their own penis to be a scam. That word is thrown around to readily these days.

Why Ripple is a scam.

http://crypt.la/2014/01/22/unexposing-the-ripple-scam-rebutting-ripplescam-org/

Why someone thinks it is not.

Sort of like one of those massively premined deals, (just split up the tokens between investors and profit), or the early stock markets before there were any rules and they keep most of it, trade money with each other giving it value, then sell off slices.

The distribution method is FUBAR, so it is not a scam if you are ok with that sort of distribution. It certainly isn't comparable to Bitcoin distribution, more like Quark if they kept the premine and tried to make it work better. Is there some good tech behind it, or behind quark, pretty much. I tend to think the distribution model does make it more of a scam, but if they are not "dumping" it and keeping it going, I guess that can also be a business plan of sorts?

Scam is the wrong word in the first place.
"Attempt to do something different that many will not understand" = Yes.
"Hustle", "Slick launch" = yes.
Scam = No.

I can't understand why you would say that. I have read your whitepaper and thought this was all about working together.

Naming ripple the coin the same as ripple the payment system the same as the debt transfer system is also an example of the scammyness.

Reminds me of the UFO guys. You don't believe in UFO's? That's ridiculous! It just means something flying which we have not identified. Unidentified Flying Objects!

Then they go on about the small green creatures from outer space collecting human samples.

GLD is maybe the best instamine in the crypto history.

anyway it's 5am here i'm tired. U can find more info i'm sure.

there's a lot more miners all around the world now than there were at the gld time so if gld was launching tomorrow i may have another opinion, but i'll say until i die that it's a scam as well as nxt is a scam (i was initial stakeholder and throw those away if you want to know.)

cheers guys.

Congratulations! You are part of the 98%!!!

I find it hilarious how many people on bitcointalk need to share their opinion about something that they have no idea about.

Ripples (XRP) are different to Ripple. There are Ripples on the Ripple network.

The coin is not called Ripple.

The first blocks were superblocks used to incentivize early mining.

The launch was advertised and open to the public. All BCT members had access to those blocks. There was no instamining/premining.

Thanks for the support Whale.

For those that want to remain ignorant to Ripple, that's of course your right.  There's plenty in the digital currency space to explore.

For those that would like to get a better perspective of Ripple, read the article.  It is free, after all.   Tongue

I can't understand why you would say that. I have read your whitepaper and thought this was all about working together.

http://www.crypto-nation.org/wp.html

That whitepaper is outdated as we are a collective now. That was the first version and we're going further. No one here want to be rich, the best would be to be paid for our work, but it's not even planned.

Anyone's welcome on the irc btw ^^

Anyway thanks for the promo  Wink

I don't want to judge you anyone here, but you can't be that innocent to not see the pb with goldcoin (ur the one who have relaunch gld right ? sorry if it's not the case)

btw we can discuss it in pm or irc later on, i don't want to give my advice publicly as if i know everything, that is not the case.

Maybe you can make me change my mind who knows
