So I have created a ripple account and now I need to get funded with 100 XRP to get started and be able to grant trust, otherwise the account is pretty much useless.
In bitcointalk, there is a giveaway of XRP to "qualified" members. If you are not one of them, what are other options except just asking for donations? Will this be something all new users have to face in the future too?
I could not find a way to buy XRP without establishing trust first.
