Not 100% sure but I have a feeling it's going to dip again in the next 24hrs, so could potentially buy cheaper than the current $2.85. Candles aren't totally pushing up yet.

Loads of exchanges have closed reg as they can't deal with volume of traffic and difficult to buy/transfer BTC/ETH atm it seems, so if you're in right now it is defo time to stock up before the rush.

What are your reasons for being short (I'll make an easy list for you)

-Bankcoin
-Banks won't use it
-Banks will develop their own blockchain/crypto
-Not fully decentralised
-Valueless token
-Other???

Think you can short it on Plus500 using one of their cfd's.

I think he just means he is not confident in ripples future performance, rather than he is literally shorting it.

I'm not saying I agree or disagree with it. I'm just posting it up as a discussion piece, much like the video before.

I've put some money on XRP and other currencies including ETH. I've made enough to make back my initial investment, so everything moving forward is just betting and HODL.

Yeah sorry that wasn't directed at you, just a general reply.

These sorts of posts have always been around but they've really amped it up since ripple surged passed ethereum. Cryptocoins becoming the new football teamsLaughing out loud

I regret not buying Ripple for profit, but I agree with most of that article. It's only one of many articles criticising Ripple. Some theories are a bit extreme, but this article seems about right.

Someone said we are all lying about our crypto gains, bought this two years ago when btc was below $200 so maybe paid £20-£25 for it, I will be honest although I made crazy gains it was the residue of left over charlie silk road money in escrow recovered.
