"There is only one blockchain that matters"
"The market has spoken"
Oof. Is XRP going up +75% in one week bullish, user15000? Asking for Harrison Becks.
XRP now up +240% year-to-date outperforming Bitcoin by a HUGE margin. This is also the case with several other superior blockchain technologies.
Ethereum joins the party! Now absolutely annihilating Bitcoin on year-to-date returns. Ray Dalio once again prescient with his thoughts??? Imagine "investing" in Bitcoin in 2020. Superior BLOCKCHAIN TECHNOLOGY matters. Even Prince Charles knows this.
XRP update: up 90% this week alone now. A use case is an absolute must if you are to survive in this field of nascent technology. Imagine backing the first iteration of ANY technology and thinking you are right by calling it the "best" at anything.
Why is it so quiet in this thread when XRP is up 102% in the past 7 days? Ethereum up 32% in the past 7 days? Just look at the year-to-date returns on all crypto vs. Bitcoin. The technology and use case must matter to somebody.
I hold a couple of $k in crypto, and XRP is my biggest bag. I think it's got a bit of genuine potential (albeit a long shot), but people love to shit on it for not being a 'real' cryptocurrency.
XLM UP 53% IN ONE DAY.
XRP NOW UP 137% OVER THE PAST 7 DAYS...THAT iS ALMOST BITCOIN'S ENTIRE YEAR-TO-DATE RETURN.
USE CASE MATTERS.
Harrison Becks 0.
congrats on being rich. It’s going to $589 bro.
Can you expound on why you think it’s got a bit of genuine potential?
I'm not interested in justifying what I am happy to gamble on. I'm sure you understand Ripple's goals and use case for XRP. If you don't believe it has a future, it won't affect my punt in any way.
You really have to admire Ray Dalio for succinctly and precisely calling this. He knew blockchain technology was the future, not Bitcoin. Then again, he is surrounded by a bunch of well-educated, highly paid people that do their research.
Just curious what you see, nothing personal all crypto’s are pumping. You can throw a dart and make money. Cheers
As a guy who bought a couple hundred dollars of XRP almost three years ago, LFG!
I bought more BTC a few weeks back... man i may just get a couple hundred in XRP and XVG and party like its 2017 until Christmas
Can someone tell me if XLM surpassed Bitcoin's entire year-to-date return in the last week or so? Shit went off.
Can you imagine trying to tell the good people of TMB that BLOCKCHAIN TECHNOLOGY does not matter, only Bitcoin?
Not trying to get in the middle of anything.
As an owner of a couple hundred XLM as well; it’s pretty easy for something valued at $0.07 per coin to make a bigger run than something valued at $18k or so per coin.
To answer your question, XLM and XRP and a bunch of other alts have been on a run recently. It’s interesting to say the least.
I’d rather own JP Morgan coin. IMO
I am aware of that. But that's not the point.
Imagine telling the good people of TMB that only Bitcoin matters. Only the most ancient and crusty technology in this field matters. Harrison Beck/user15000 tried telling us that literally a few weeks ago. His take is "forget BLOCKCHAIN TECHNOLOGY, only Bitcoin." Digest the hilarity and naivete in that.
The use case for a global store of value is in the hundreds of trillions of dollars for what that’s worth.
Scroll down and tell me what you see.

Damn, missed that one from a few days ago. Sounds bullish AF.
Are we having fun yet?
Pull backs are fun. Last I checked, nothing has fundamentally changed. Just an excuse to buy some more at lower prices.
I hate Coinbase so much
I will say that it does seem to be in heavy demand by money launderers, criminals, and fraudsters. Or at least that's the impression that I get from user15000's posts in this thread.
Ya not a fan. Prefer Kraken.
Weekly chart. Just for clarification, user15000/Harrison Becks are you buying this "dip?" Is Micro Strategery? Grayscale Bitcoin "Trust" ??? Are you recommending TMBers to do the same?
Just for posterity.
Reminder that these people need you to make money off of digital ones and zeroes. Without new bagholders, the price does not go up and they do not make money. This FOMO clown appears to be the 2020 version of John McAfee (who is now in prison, I believe).
Your point really has no application to today’s scenario which is due to an AWS dependency, but continue your shitposting like always
Will you stop poking each other’s dicks in here or is this what is going to continue for the next 4 years?
An AWS dependency that pops up every time the crypto market tanks? That just happened to pop up the week that they removed margin trading? Quite a coincidence. I'll just refer you to the Coinbase reddit for further reading if you really believe that. Seems to me that this is a bit more than an AWS dependency.
I'll just add that if it's an "AWS dependency" issue, then the problem is most certainly NOT on Amazon's side of things.
Well, found this so there may be some merit to it...but that doesn't explain the issues described on the Coinbase reddit stemming from several days ago. This post is from two days ago:
Just an amazing coincidence with the timing, I suppose.
You continue to show your ass at how little you understand how technology works, and how triage is done at a big tech company. Having been in the industry over a decade at this point, there’s nothing else to say to people like you. Ignored, goodbye.
The smart people are talking again. Feel free to refute...again.
Wow. Another guy that apparently knows a lot about technology but cannot point out any discrepancies in the counterargument with any detail or conviction.
So if AWS goes down, Coinbase goes down? Is there perhaps a solution that you have seen in your 10+ years at a "big tech company" that would cover this issue? Especially when dealing with customer money in a market that is supposed to operate 24/7? Is DNS redundancy something that your company is still working on in 2020? Is your company Coinbase? lol
I don’t even need to check the market I can just look at who is bumping this thread to determine if BTC is up or down
:) But really, the price is irrelevant. The fundamentals remain the same. The fraud remains rampant. The shilling continues unabated in this thread and is now being supported by others working at a "big tech company," most likely because they hold crypto as well. They have bought into the hype and marketing. They have become emotional about it and do not care to discuss the fundamentals because hope has overridden any attempt to logically think about things. Twitter posts with buzzwords and charts have manipulated them. The same echo chambers that control people politically control these people now.
Idk why but this thread really leads you to ramble like a Q Anon supporter.
Funny, I think the opposite. Bitcoin homers remind me of Trumpers. They only consume the info they agree with and anything else is fake news.
My point is more about the disconnect between thinking Bitcoin has no value when the cat is already out of the bag.
Yea saying it has no value is silly. Anything can have value. Its just supply and demand.
It’s a $320B+ network you dipshits (husker, and “no value” anyone else). That’s the value. Period. As of like 2 days ago, it had a value of more than every bank on earth. These are facts. Crusty old tech with a massively bigger market cap than every other crypto that exists. Justify that however you want. You’ll keep being wrong.
“Bitcoin can be infinitely copied” is one of the most commonly ignorant criticisms that is trivially debunked. There is literally a 24/7 free market and it’s telling you that Bitcoin is worth something like 60X more than its closest copy, BCH which is 99.9% same code.
Who was it telling us just the other week that Bitcoin was backed by CODE and the CONSENSUS OF ITS LARGEST SHAREHOLDERS? So it's backed by something anybody can easily copy and then if the consensus changes on a whim... ???? (Believe me, the fun is just beginning with this...stay tuned)
What's funny is many -- including a United States government entity that is responsible for federal policy on standards -- believe that BCH is the true Bitcoin conforming more closely to the original whitepaper that you and those Twitter shills are always claiming others do not understand and should carefully read.
So the irony here is that you are claiming the "fake Bitcoin copy" (which many including the US government believe is the REAL and original Bitcoin) cannot be a copy of "real Bitcoin" because the manipulated price of the "real Bitcoin" is higher.
Absolutely amazing that you just link complete tripe like this blindly without a thought. And you claim to understand the technology. Amazing again, user15000.
I own some XRP AMA
