XNF is backed by gold, unlike your IOU. What point are you trying to make about about fraud/ counterfeiting?

You are already collecting names and email addresses which are personal information that could identify a person. This means you are legally required to provide your contact details for any freedom of information requests. Where are your contact details?

You will be able to redeem and therefore spend your World dollars outside of the Ripple network. World Dollar therefore does not exist only as an IOU. If you understand how XNF works on Ripple, you also understand how World Dollar works on Ripple. There is no problem in using it as a payments platform. Soon you will also be able to receive, trade and spend your World dollars with alternative options.

Freedom of information requests apply only to public authorities. We are exempt from the requirement to register with an information protection officer.

If you submit your details (name, email address) you will be advised of the next steps you will need to take with a Network member in order to receive your World dollars. Your details are NOT passed onto them by default. There is also a checkbox that you can tick if you wish to receive marketing emails in future, from which, again, we do not profit from. Any request for your details to no longer be held by us is fulfilled immediately. 

All this being said, not as a matter of legal necessity, but as a matter of establishing and maintaining trust, rest assured that we will make all our contact details publicly available.

If you have any further questions on this issue, please feel free to get in touch with contact@world-dollar.com, or we can address any further queries on this forum if you prefer.

No, actually he has a point. XNF is not backed by anything either.

They are purposefully deceiving people, including you successfully it seems, but there's no fixed amount of gold that can be redeemed for a fixed amount of XNF.
You can perhaps buy gold at market price for XNF, but no, it's not backed by gold.

It's not surprising that others are seeing this and wanting in on this sweet, sweet action.

This is a fair point, the way XNF works is indeed deceptive in that you can't redeem a fixed amount of gold for a fixed amount of XNF. In this sense, XNF isn't a good example to use when relating to World Dollar (WLD), as people will always be able to transfer 100% of any WLD balance they hold on Ripple to any alternative payment platform.

Are you talking about trading Ripple IOUs for Stellar IOUs, or are you hinting at an altcoin being developed to serve as some sort of backing for the IOUs in general?

Warning: What I'm about to describe is highly difficult for most to get their heads around. It is, however, 100% accurate and confirmed by those who work at Ripple labs.

Concept 1: Imagine a new currency, XYZ, that is issued on Ripple, but cannot be withdrawn outside of Ripple. This XYZ is NOT an "IOU", as it is not being held by the gateway for it to be transferrable elsewhere. This XYZ is a legitimate unit of potential value as a medium of exchange, just as much as any altcoin outside of Ripple. There is no fundamental difference in terms of monetary economics. (In practice, but beside the point, XYZ transactions occur in 1 second and cost nothing to "mine", while e.g. BTC takes 1 hour to get 6 confirmations and is very expensive to "mine").

Concept 2: Now, imagine that XYZ can now be withdrawn outside of Ripple, e.g. to be held on a mobile payments platform, which also allows fiat currencies to be held there. One (simple-minded) interpretation is that XYZ is an "IOU" on Ripple, and is not the "real thing" on the mobile payments platform. Alternatively, the more logical interpretation is that XYZ is the "real thing" on both platforms, on one condition. This condition is: if I transfer 10,000 XYZ from the mobile payments platform to Ripple, the 10,000 XYZ is "destroyed" on the mobile payments platform, and "create" it on Ripple.

And here you have it, you have just learned something you never knew about Ripple. It can actually be used to transfer currencies (other than XRP) in a form that is not an IOU.

Substitute XYZ for WLD above, and you understand how World Dollar works.

Since that was far removed from 100% accurate, which Ripple Labs employee do you claim you talked to about this? Could you point to the relevant forum threads, or was it a private exchange?

You are describing an IOU that isn't backed by anything. i.e., a ripple account issues whatever it wants with no intention to ever redeem it.
Ripple only has OUIs and XRP. There's literally no other unit of value built in the system.

No, there are some rather huge fundamental differences. An altcoin is supposed to have a well defined, predictable money supply. As you well know, Ripple IOUs without backing can be created at will out of thin air.

So what does WLD's money supply look like? How do we know you won't issue more than you should, or perhaps to the wrong people? Because you tell us so. Who are you? We apparently don't need to know.

I don't believe there's anything "highly difficult" to grasp here.

A ripple IOU cannot be "withdrawn outside of ripple". A gateway can accept an IOU back and redeem it for something outside of ripple in return.
Your terminology is once again painfully fuzzy, and apparently by design, since you proceed to talk about IOUs existing outside of ripple.

Glossing over the inconsistencies, it seems like you are talking about having XYZ tokens that exist outside of Ripple. Is that what you mean, and how are those tokens actually implemented?

And here you have it, you have just learned something you never knew about Ripple. It can actually be used to transfer currencies (other than XRP) in a form that is not an IOU.

If chutzpah was a monetary unit, you'd be rich.

After a cursory look at the ledger, it seems like my previous off-the-cuff remark about XNF's relationship to WLD was, oddly enough, not entirely unwarranted.
Perhaps I'll keep digging if you keep making fanciful claims.

It was 100% accurate, unfortunately you weren't previously aware that Ripple could be used in this way. If you get in touch with Ripple labs, it will be confirmed to you that Ripple can be used in this way, even though it is an unconventional approach.

WLD has a well defined money supply, it is 10,000 WLD for every unique person who claims their World dollars, from now and and for all eternity. You will find out who is behind World Dollar, if you're personally interested in joining you're free to do so. The issuing network will also be independently audited by a reliable, trustworthy 3rd party to verify that World dollars are indeed being issued responsibly.

What a laughable non-answer. Good luck wasting BTC buying your own WLD to make it appear as if there's a market for your "Future of Money."

Who knows. XNF kept repeating obvious lies with a straight face too, and they seem to find no shortage of suckers yet.

For everyone else, please browse https://xrptalk.org/topic/4092-what-you-never-knew-about-ripple-it-can-actually-be-used-to-transfer-currencies-other-than-xrp-in-a-form-that-is-not-an-iou/ for more perspective on this radical new way of issuing ripple IOUs.

It wasn't a non-answer, it's just that everything had already been addressed in the previous post, and so it wasn't worth repeating. You just unfortunately hadn't understood it.

Everyone else, yes please do browse http://xrptalk.org/topic/4092-what-you-never-knew-about-ripple-it-can-actually-be-used-to-transfer-currencies-other-than-xrp-in-a-form-that-is-not-an-iou/ so that you can get to grips with how this works. There's little point in having this discussion here in this very old thread.
