    The big ripple meeting is today I think it's called swellbyripple.

    I was reading on some web forums people are hoping they will announce the launch of xrapid there.

    So big things might happen today.

    I think Xrp is a great long time hold. We will see if Ripple can deliver on their vision :cool:

    This is great. I thought I had 500 xrp. Actually have 1000.

    Imagine if it gets on coinbase!

    Most if not all central governments and banks would be against the idea of something decentralised so I can't see this happening.

    Lack of control really from those financially invested, therefore the risk exposure would be very high. Particularly in its current state.

    It makes far more sense to remain as it is, a form of bridging currency.

    isnt that the same thing?

    XRP is a decentralised bridging currency.

    its going to do what the dollar did for the last 50 years.

    Im not sure why Bank of England would put Ripple in the POC accelerator program all those years ago if they didnt intend to get any benefit from it.

    You are saying XRP is a bridging currency, that's what the dollar has done for the last 50 years, apart from it can't sustain it anymore because of its overall national debt. The US being the world liquidity providers needs to wind down, all cash is going to wind down tbh. We are going towards cashless.

    I would of thought governments would like a transparent tool like Ripplenet.

    It's just my opinion of course. i do think XRP is going to place a massive role in cross border settlement, i believe it will get official recognition soon..

    USD and XRP aren't comparable in the sense that one is a true currency, backed by a country with a worldwide accepted value, while the other is a digital asset. Even Ripple themselves term XRP as that.

    Sure they can accomplish similar things, but it isn't one of Ripple's vision to see XRP as a fiat replacement. That's not to say another entity won't try this, but I don't see this happening anytime soon. They have a great use case with their xRapid network and this is where I believe they will succeed together with XRP.
