News Gem: Not Advice
The rumors are still flying, but in case you haven’t seen this gem, it’s pretty important.
Joel Katz — Chief Cryptographer David Schwartz at Ripple, let this one slip on December 11, 2017:
“Katz” was asked if there were any high-profile partnerships pending.
“There are two huge ones I wish I could release. Non-Banks, household names.”
And of course, that is why, given other hints lately, that speculation is flying.
Thanks, Joel, I mean David. We are excited — well, I am.
This month, right?
Non-banks? Got it.
Household names? Why is everyone thinking Coinbase? That is not a household name.
- Paypal? (Probably Not)
These are huge non-bank, household names. (All trademarked too.)
Of these, which ones are most techy? Youthful? Savvy?
Microsoft already accepts bitcoin, but it’s expensive to use, right? Seems a logical next step to roll in Ripple.
Amazon’s bitcoin rumor has been swirling for a while. If they accepted XRP’s, it would be a boon.
Paypal already accepts bitcoin, but news has it that this revenue stream has slowed. It would be nice, however, if I could buy XRP’s via Paypal.
What do you think and does it matter…if you can profit anyway?
P.S. As of 12/28/2017 — after publishing this short notice on 12/18/2017 — Ripple has almost doubled in value. Very unusual for Ripple…
