  • From X__Anderson:

    Opinion/Belief: $XRP will not have an average return. It will either go 1000x + or go to zero. … and it seems regulatory clarity is what is holding it back. Financial interests. It’s a bet I’m willing to make, the risk/reward looks too good. Not financial advice.

  • From Kevin_Cage_:

    It doesn’t matter if I believe what you believe regarding $XRP going up slow & steady or mooning overnightXRP is my largest position. We are on the same team. Relaaaaax 👊You don’t need others to agree with your beliefs to reaffirm your own #ImOpenToAnythingTBH

  • From ThinkingCrypto1:

    1/2 I’m gonna get a lot of hate for this but I have to keep it real. I’m bullish on both #Bitcoin and #XRP. However, when folks at @Ripple state that China controls Bitcoin, do they not see they are throwing stones from a glass house when they control the majority of XRP?

Ripple versus Stablecoins…or is it? – Galgitron’s Blog

I mean, why would anybody need to bridge through XRP if they can just send a stablecoin and be done right?…No, I’m talking about the global reserve currency of course, the USD, which today acts as the bridge to create virtual pairings that are too illiquid to exist on their own….How is the fact that I have a Mexican stablecoin going to help me bypass the need for a bridge currency to get my money to my Indian friend in their local currency so they can actually use it?…So yes, even stablecoins still need to be bridged in a X-border payment….”But but but you can bridge with a USD CBDC instead of using ODL, right?” Yes, I could, but why would I?…(I’m not apologizing) Stablecoins in ODL Yes, it is possible that ODL evolves to use a stablecoin instead of XRP in many cases.
