  • From XRPLLabs:

    At XRPL Labs we decided to stop primarily using the term “IOU” for issued tokens on the XRP Ledger. While some tokens issued on the XRP Ledger are indeed IOU’s (I owe you), with counter party risk, it’s also possible to issue ‘regular’ tokens. Fixed supply, NFT’s, all possible.

  • From xrpartisan:

    I’m not a maxi. I’m not telling you not to buy Bitcoin. It’s clearly shown it’s capable of getting people to buy it. But from a tech perspective it’s like buying an ancient PC from the early 1990s for more money than you’d pay for a modern Macbook Pro.#XRP $XRP #XRPCommunity
