Stellar/Ripple consensus issues
« on: December 10, 2014, 10:48:57 AM »

Interesting story that I didn't see mentioned here about a potential fault in Ripple's consensus mechanism:

Quote
Stellar's Jed McCaleb has issued a statement on the issue. While he does not deny that the code has been changed since its fork from Ripple, he does maintain that the Ripple protocol could be at risk.

Despite all that, both Ripple and Stellar are up today, go figure..

I have long maintained that ripple style consensus is fragile and requires careful configuration of the unique node lists to avoid a fork. 

This careful config means centralization.

It seems to be a disagreement if stellar modified something in the code.

Has ripple ever had this issue before stellar came along?

Thats what momentum looks like.  Ripple is the only major crypto that has it right now, sadly.

Just wait 'till we burst out of beta.

Is it just me, or is there something off with the ripple price rise?

Look at the 7 day chart http://coinmarketcap.com/currencies/ripple/#charts
It just looks to "clean"
The price rise is a pretty straight line, which is unusual in crypto.
Then there's a dump, but following that dump the price rises the same as before.
Then the pump, and still the same rise.
