@  takida : (28 July 2015 - 01:12 PM) @ShivaFang. your'e welcome. Nobody knows what's going to happen but Rickard is a senior guy so he seems credible. That video is one year old so there are more spices now to the picture than at that time but I think it sums a lot of things up...
@  ShivaFang : (28 July 2015 - 12:57 PM) @takida thanks for a link to the video - known that the global economy was going to crash soon but didn't know what all the signals were.
@  ShivaFang : (28 July 2015 - 12:26 PM) Bitcoin is 'safer' in the sense that it's not a fiat currency that's drawn on insolvent debt. There is only a finite number of them and it doesn't have to be 'paid back' like fiat currencies. Thus, as long as people consider them currency they will always be in demand (very similar to gold)
@  pouluech : (28 July 2015 - 12:17 PM) looks like it... these problems are becoming a farse...
@  pouluech : (28 July 2015 - 12:16 PM) Is the price going to crumble again while we cannot access rippletrade?
@  rippledigital : (28 July 2015 - 12:01 PM) the machines always take over in the end
@  rippledigital : (28 July 2015 - 12:01 PM) but banks will cut a lot of staff after blockchain tech comes in
@  rippledigital : (28 July 2015 - 12:00 PM) only global growth matters in the end
@  takida : (28 July 2015 - 11:36 AM) I also thought that for Ripple/XRPs hopefully the crash should idealy wait until banks have jumped aboard Ripple. Banks should suffer hard and it might be that they have to concentrate on their core or present fundamentals. On the other hand, they could save money using Ripple
@  takida : (28 July 2015 - 11:33 AM) Physical gold but it feels very old fashioned and it's not very convenient to trade, so Bitcoin (and maybe XRP follow) should be boosted at least bit (could be a big bit)?
@  rippledigital : (28 July 2015 - 11:31 AM) oh well, we all gotta go sometime
@  rippledigital : (28 July 2015 - 11:30 AM) not sure it'll happen in time
@  rippledigital : (28 July 2015 - 11:30 AM) but it's taking ages to upgrade the old systems
@  rippledigital : (28 July 2015 - 11:30 AM) i think fintech can give us a few more years of growth
@  rippledigital : (28 July 2015 - 11:30 AM) which means once the dollar slides, it's game over
@  rippledigital : (28 July 2015 - 11:30 AM) since global growth is stopping, there is also no outside economy
@  rippledigital : (28 July 2015 - 11:29 AM) yeah but because of the globally interconnected economy, there is no longer any 'outside' currency to go to
@  takida : (28 July 2015 - 11:29 AM) I think this Jim Rickards video is a good summary of some possible risks:

@  takida : (28 July 2015 - 11:28 AM) @Rippledigital. Off course, hard to know what will happen but if it gets bad USD (or other currency) collapses or devalue they will be worth less. People seek to transfer value to "safer" alternatives like gold (and to some extent Bitcoin (even though it's not safer))

    Had a long talk with someone regarding geneology today. At one point I said something to the effect that "if you go back far enough everyone is related" and I was about to say "If only by two monkeys getting it on". However he spoke first and said "yeah, all the way back to Noah" At which point I remembered I am in the heartland.
