    Remember, most coins are still down 80-90%. Ripple, Ethereum and all the other disasters. This is all just part of a larger ongoing crash in my view. It will keep rollercoastering down for years in my view.

    Everywhere I go I see the current generation using their phones to pay for goods, this is the upcoming bitcoin generation .. face it, the cat's outta the bag. Yes of course most coins will fail but that's the situation in everything in life. How many business's fail? How many sporting clubs win the premiership ?? ...So on and So on.

    There are some promising projects worth looking at, one of my favourites is Basic Attention Token (BAT) and Brave. It's a way of paying for visitor attention, and getting paid as a publisher. From what I see, the prices of tokens or currencies don't represent the quality of the tech, so the good projects are hard to spot.

    I've posted about the browser the Brave browser on DNT before, but you can find out more about the BAT project at https://basicattentiontoken.org. The founder is the creator of JavaScript and co-founder of Mozilla. It's come along in leaps and bounds over the past few years.

    They ain’t using bitcoin to pay for anything! Can you imagine people choosing to use a different currency to pay for a coffee?

    Worth noting that Scott7 and Myself recently attended the partnership announcement evening of Gobbil + Cointree .... they're motto is "Pay and bill with any coin" as I said the Bitcoin Generation is on the way

    Why would you though when you can use your own currency? It is digital already, just pull out your phone and use apple pay.

    What is the benefit or having a whole lot of payments converting from Australian dollars to bitcoin and back? The bitcoin network can't even handle more than a few transactions a second and the costs of buying that cup of coffee would high and slow.

    Will you pay two lots of fees and wait for ages just to buy a coffee with bitcoin? Even 10 seconds is considered slow for a payment processing time at a Cafe so the 10 minute-1hour that Bitcoin currently takes isn't any breakthrough.

    We are talking about a generation that would use a phone to help them fart if possible ....... the motto says any coin. Xrp will be super fast and well adopted in the very near future. Darn fool kids ....

    The price of Ripple (xrp) is now down 90%, it is being abandoned along with all the other junk coins. Only one that matter is bitcoin but it is unlikely to ever be mainstream.

    I didn't say it was going to go up. I think Xrp will be treated as a "stable coin" which is why is doesn't move much lately. Now can I go back to watching cat videos on Youtube ...

    It is a tanking! Nothing stable about this. Rename its code to RIP.

    I doubt it, people can already easily make payments with phones.
