I attended a conference today on cryptocurrencies and heard that Ripple is not easy/possible for normal, non-finance institution investors to participate in. A closed system to facilitate interbank transfers (so they don't have to go through a costly third party). I'm thinking about a cryptocurrency fund ... a good way to participate with diversification. So much to know.
What about Swift - it's the target Ripple would look to replace, already entrenched within the industry. I just learned they are going to be adopting blockchain but with chainlink instead of Ripple.

The Swell "conference" is taking place in a small lounge in Toronto I think.

Buying BTC at $7k is either a suicide or a last chance.
I would never buy later stages of a rally. Considering where the dip was. Be careful out there

Right.. it ain't rallying any higher, must be a phycological barrier, the last push was a mainstream fiat pouring in.

Never underestimate herd mentality. FOMO is a powerful tool.

Do you guys think LTC will goto $100 soon?
Litecoin is a solid coin, I have invested a bit in it myself. It already broke 100 if it hadnt been the China FUD it probably be over that by now.

This. I set my limits at around $2500, but it never dropped quite that low. If anything though, I'm kicking myself for not getting in at the ground floor, or for not buying in while it was still sub $1000 earlier this year.

nice run. BTC should reach $10000 eventually, but there'll be bumps and profit taking along the way.

What's up with the flat lining? People cashing in and getting rich off the hype?
