Thread Details

This is another virtual currency like Bitcoin that is just starting up...it's backed by some big VC firms, so maybe will make a splash. Anyway free is free:

Go here to create free "wallet": https://ripple.com/client/#/register

Then go here and Like the page and post your wallet address on their page and you will get 300 ripples (XRP) to get you started:

300 XRP is not worth much but it was fun to do and maybe they will go up in value someday like Bitcoins.

While Ripple is legit, this particular Facebook thing looks to be a scam.

She is "lending" Ripples that she "bought" and offering to sell more at $25 per 1,000.

Mind you, the company behind the thing is going to give away another 55 BILLION Ripples....$25 per 1,000 may be a bit high to buy in at just yet...

ROFL, looks like this isn't an official giveway. Some idiot apparently bought a bunch of ripples or something and is trying to help the movement grow....she wasn't clear, but, well....

Well, there was a lot more there, I gather she deleted/edited it out.

At first I thought she was pretty stupid, now I'm not so sure. If enough people take her up on the offer to buy 1,000 ripples for $25 via PayPal.

Oh, and yes, their business plan is to keep, according to this article, 25% of what's issued, and then milk it for huge profits later.

Anyway, I';d stay away from this one folks. Ripple looks legit, if maybe a questionable from an ethical standpoint, but this Facebook thing is either a scam, or just plain stupidity. It's not official.

I haven't figured it out yet...you can supposedly trade on their site but then have to go through some kind of intermediary site too.

Here is an article about it:

Well the best way to get started easily is to Facebook it because you need 300 xrp in your acct to even have it be functional, for most part.

I'm not sure how you easily buy more at this point. I wanted to buy some more myself but not easy to do. I think the main launch for this new currency is in May.

Facebook page only had 29 Likes and up to 43 now so looks like SD effect will double the success of their promotion and then some.
