Upload your documentation etc.

And set up 2 factor authentication.

It looks like TRX has been accused of plagiarism.

I was curious as to why it has been tanking.

I’ll wait for proof.

There’s a lot of stuff in this industry that’s reused.

XLM still has Ripple references in its code. It’s largely identical to xrp but no one seems to be calling plagiarism.

They also don’t have a dedicated team of English speaking technical writers. Most of their English white paper is google translate product.

They opened a US office in order to hire a US work force for English language development because the language barrier really has been a problem with Tron.

We will see.

So what's the excuse today then?

Shorted ripple at Plus500 yesterday and made £25,000 in under 24 hours.

Shame it was only a demo account.

Haven't dumped mine yet.

Don't think I'm going to either.

Still on a holding pattern.

Pretty much ALL currency (other than straight barter) is fiat currency folks.

It's all based on the idea that it is perceived to be worth something to another.

The crypto currency market is just....well, insane is the only way to put it. Will be interesting to see how it plays out. Im betting that eventually, we'll see state intervention, regulation, etc., but until then, likely still some money to be made here, with some pretty astronomical returns.

Personally, I'm spread into a few different ones, just have my toe in it, to test the waters.

TRX has a lot of good things going right now.

None of this would be happening if CoinMarketCap wasn't so god damned irresponsible on an already volatile market.

Either way this is weeding out the weak investors, FOMO investors, and market pumpers.

This is a great buy opportunity and I have increased my stake in all mentioned currencies, including Tron.

I also threw into VIBE last night. Doing pretty well with it.

Fiat;

a formal authorization or proposition; a decree.

an arbitrary order.


Cryptocurrencies are not valuable because someone says it is. Blockchain is distributed consensus. Cryptos are worth something because everyone AGREES that it is.

Not everyone agrees that the US dollar is worth something. It derives its value from the decree of government.

Distributed consensus and fiat are not the same things at all.

Straight shot up overnite.

Got another one to watch now.

VIBE won't be slowing down too much either. I got in on it early. It got listed on Binance last night at 2200 PST. It was already blowing up before that. Now it's even better.

They have so much investment and buzz from the entertainment industry that they are likely to become one of the first publicly traded companies in the blockchain space.

I think Ripple Labs will be the first IPO crypto company. VIBE may be the second considering their very focused use-case.

So, as a newbie in this, where would I go to get VIBE or Ripple, etc.?

Again, just dipping toes into it.

I mean, if I had put $20 into Litecoin a year ago, it'd be worth over $2300 now....so all of it is just damn impressive.

Point was that all of it is really "backed" by nothing more than the faith folks put into it, an agreement it's worth something...but I see your point as well.

Yep, looks like Bittrex will be an option in a bit though, just doing some upgrades to handle the traffic. I guess that's a good indicator. Again, not risking anything more than I can lose anyhow. Thanks so much for all the advice I've seen (and others) in this thread guys.

As an example:

Bitcoin can be mined. In order to mine bitcoin you have to contribute time, energy(electricity), money(the electric bill will go up), physical equipment-especially if you're serious(Bitcoin Mining Rig) and other resources as well.

That sounds exactly like mining gold to me. Much of the price of gold is the costs associated with extracting it and refining. Then it's up to the market to find use cases for it(of which there are many), and investors/speculators for price-discovery.

Bitcoin has functioned exactly the same way only digitally. For all intents and purposes, Bitcoin is far more real of a currency than the US dollar.

With cryptocurrency, you have distributed consensus and an immutable ledger; Bitcoin is actually better than gold.
