    Combine that with bank's and card issuers like Amex adopting the Ripple tech I would expect a surge. Japan and South Korea banks are testing the tech this week. If all goes well they will adopt Ripple this spring.
    So Ripple is a private company and XRP is their cryptocurrency? Seems like they have some technical advantages over the others.

    As I understand it, it's centralized and the coins are premined, so it would be like if Google made their own crypto and sold it. That would be something that seems it could be taken over easily, like in devil21's crypto conspiracy theory predictions.

    I like the idea of decentralized crypto currency more, but I bought some a few years ago as a hedge and I don't mind them competing in the marketplace of crypto..

    Premined...hmm. Can a crypto be completely mined? Is there anything that would stop them from creating more?

    Apparently there are only 4 servers that control the flow of Ripple. One server went down and made the whole network FUBAR until it was fixed.

    https://medium.com/@slinafirinne/on-...k-a1655e8d636d

    At approximately 9.21pm EST I transferred 550 XRP from my wallet to the Binance exchange. My wallet said the transaction was successful, but no transaction ID was provided to me. When I looked on the exchange, there was no pending transaction either. At the time, the coins that vanished without a trace were worth approximately $1200.

    I was not the only person to encounter this issue. I assume 25% of Ripple deposits failed last night, but I could be wrong there. Lots of folks posted about similar instances on the /r/Ripple community as well.

    So what happened?

    According to the ToastWallet creator, one of Ripple’s servers, s2.ripple.com was experiencing issues and was down. It looks like my transaction went to this server, and that’s why my coins went missing.

    The Ripple network did not re-route my request to the other 3 available servers: s1, s3, & s4.ripple.com. Instead, it waited for s2 to become available again and process the missing transactions. Ripple informed my wallet that the transaction was successful, but I had no transaction ID and I couldn’t see evidence of the transaction anywhere. It was as if the coins, and my money, just vanished.

    I thought Ripple was the banker coin. Meaning, its not that decentralized, non traceable entity crypto is trying to solve... but rather, the bankers entry into the fray.
    Though, my knowledge is rather sparse in relation to crypto.

    Ripple is centralized. but it uses cryptography like bitcoin.

    Ripplie is not minable. Ripple owns 60% of the supply. Ripple is like the FED. Ripple can decide everything.

    People buy Ripple coins as a hedge or for gains.

    Ripple is a solid scam worth investing a few dollars. i have a few grands.

    If they have 60% of the volume that doesn't mean they can determine the price. They could, for a while. If the volume can't be changed it is definitely a whole other institution than the FED. If people however trust this company, then I would say this reserve over half of the volume is pretty decent.
