  1. No problem Current roadmap: 1) Interledger, 2) Mobile App, 3) Debit cards. All scheduled for 2017. ILP is already being tested with selected partners. Public beta coming to GateHub Wallet in Q1. Great! Please let us know if you encounter any issues in the future. We are here to help.
  2. With Authy you are able to restore authentication keys in case you lose or break your device. With Google Authenticator you need to securely store authentication keys by yourself or go through a lengthy process of deactivating 2-Step verification for each service you use. That said, Google Authenticator is probably more secure as the authentication keys are only stored on your device. I believe Coinbase had issues with the SMS part of the Authy service, not with the in-app PIN generation (which we use).
  3. Hi @Twarden, please PM me your email. This is usually a problem on the phone side, not on the server side. Google Authenticator has a special feature in the app settings called "Time correction for codes". Authy probably has a similar feature in their app as well.
  4. We only fund wallets (50 XRP) where email and phone number has been verified. In the future we might incentivise fully KYC-ed wallets with additional XRP.
  5. Hi @namini, we will resume the auto-funding of ripple wallets this week. Anyone who is looking to activate their wallet can PM me and we'll send the initial 50 XRP. Kind regards, Enej
  6. Hi @newbee, the address to which you are trying to send XRP (rHb9CJAWyB4rj91VRWn96DkukG4bwdtyTh) has a special "DisallowXRP" flag enabled. The owner of this address doesn't want to receive payments in XRP which is why our clients prevents you from sending it. You can read more about it here: https://ripple.com/build/gateway-guide/#disallowxrp
  7. Hi @nur, please PM me your email and we'll check right away.
  8. Agree! GateHub did everything we could to keep your secret keys safe (using end-to-end encryption) but as @JoelKatz said nothing can beat cold wallets for large amounts of XRP. If you use GateHub make sure to use strong password and enable 2-Step verification. @Bejzbox I suggest you try both and decide for yourself. GateHub offers better native ripple experience and direct access to RCL while Bitstamp might have better tools for trading. Looking at the future, we hope to enable support for multisign in GateHub Wallet later this year.
  9. @T8493 it's probably best if you contact Global iD team directly if you want more information. They have a contact form on the bottom of the page here: https://www.myglobal.id/. While the company is still in the US there will soon be an office in EU too. Also you might want to read Global iD whitepaper also available on the GiD website. If you send me a PM with your name or email, I'll be happy to check if you have a GateHub Name or not. While the GateHub names are public (just like @twittername and ~ripplename), any personal information behind them is not. Global iD keeps a "placeholder" for all GateHub names. Once you log in with GateHub account using GiD app you can then claim the same Global iD name. No personal data will be transferred anywhere without your consent.
  10. Great question @joy! Hosted wallet suit the needs of the mass public better than any "native blockchain" wallet can (at the moment). Here are just a few reasons why: They are infinitely scalable Faster TX processing Easier to handle refunds Private balances and transactions Easier to recover funds (there are no secret keys one can loose...) Easier to protect (security) More "compliant" A bank can always "restore" your funds if you loose a card for example. If you loose your secret keys you're done. While some (including me and probably most of you guys) see this as a feature, the majority sees it as a problem. That's not to say that native crypto wallets are useless. Actually they are much better in some ways, but the technology that we need to keep them safe is in it's infancy. I would much rather see new FinTech startups start addressing these pitfalls instead of developing a new blockchain's everyday. I think that's the real reason why large wallet providers like Circle pivoted toward "hosted" model.
  11. 1) In short GateHub Names are the new Ripple Names. You can learn more about them here: https://wallet.gatehub.net/#/help/overview/names Please note that GateHub Names are not yet "live" on GateHub, but you can already claim one. Global iD uses this name to identify GateHub users. If you migrated your account from RippleTrade to GateHub you were able to keep the name. Same is now true for Global iD - you can claim GateHub Name there. 2) Global iD app is not developed by GateHub, but they are using our platform. Technically they are a hosted gateway. We work in close collaboration because Global iD is much more than an app. We hope it will eventually become an identity standard worldwide. And to answer your question @Morty, the app we are refereeing to in the email is not the Global iD app
  12. Yes. For the time being. Someday in the future (definitely not in 2017) when both user's and the merchant's accounts (or wallets) support ILP, we might simply bypass Visa's/Mastercard's network and send TX off the rails (or inter-rails) via ILP. If not debit card will simply fallback to Visa's or Mastercard's network. This will take some time however because we'll need to have smart enough mobile wallets, merchant solutions (terminals) and ledgers that all supports ILP and GiD (Global iD).
  13. As @Morty said, you'll be able to spend any currency. I should note that ILP and cards will only work with hosted wallets until RCL fully supports ILP as well. Even then the general public will probably be better off using hosted wallets - except if they are advanced users and they know what they're doing. To put things in perspective, we believe ILP and hosted wallets will become a replacement for bank accounts (again bank accounts, not banks) and PayPal's of the world while RCL will be used by Liquidity Providers (connectors to use ILP terminology) to settle funds faster than using wire transfers. The question is how open the ILP enabled institutions will be to supporting 3rd party connectors. This is why we are working hard to create a network(s) of gateways that will be using the same transaction protocols (ILP) and identity standard (Global iD). Both are needed if we want this to work between institutions that don't directly trust each other. And of course to keep regulators happy ...
  14. We are working closely with Ripple's ILP team to make sure we are 100% compatible with other entities.
