  1. Any idea why this won't work with a deleted wallet? I had xrp in an active wallet with a eth compatible address in the message key field for the snapshot, but after emptying it back to cold storage after the snapshot and deleting that wallet, I now get an error with the lookup tool.
  2. It's a very simple process if you use the XUMM app. Just go to https://xumm.community/ and choose the "account delete" button and fill in the XRP address and destination tag of where you want the 15 XRP sent. That generates a QR code that the XUMM app scans and completes the transaction after you approve it on the app. One important note: they do not recommend sending directly to an exchange but rather a wallet you control, though if you're very careful to put the destination tag in it seems like it would work. I have only sent to a personal wallet and that works flawlessly.
  3. Make sure the seller is sending to a wallet you have set up, not them. The 2nd scenario is a theft waiting to happen. See:
  4. I'm sure this is old news for many of the members here but it might be useful for newer members or lurkers. I have seen thousands of XRP cold wallets sucessfully sold on eBay, some empty and some pre-loaded with XRP. Despite claims in the listings that "all security keys are destroyed after production", the fatal security flaw with every last one of them is that you are trusting that no one in the entire manufacturing process took a photo of or wrote down the secret key. There is a period of time before the scratch-off material is applied, when the secret key is visible to anyone in the manufacturing facility. Some wallets even have the secret key uncovered on the finished product. People may be used to scratch-off cards like gift cards or lottery tickets being secure but they are produced under high-security. These wallets come with no such assurance. These products are potentially a time-bomb in that the stolen key may not be used for a long time, lulling the new owner into thinking it is secure. They have no recourse if down the road their wallet is emptied. Those potential victims may even wrongly blame Ripple the company, causing public relations problems.
  5. Under the heading of professionalism on Kraken's website it states: "We are dedicated to our product and your experience." I don't see evidence of that at all in my customer experience so far with Kraken. I tried to withdraw money recently that I needed for end-of-year transactions for tax and other purposes. I had gone exactly by the book, supplying all the requested KYC documents, and become Tier 3 verified months before for that very reason. The following day the status of my withdrawal simply stated "failed" on the website. No e-mail to me or any other communication about it. I get more e-mail updates on a $10 Amazon order. I reach out to support and 2 days go by with no answer. I then escalate the ticket and on the 6th day after the withdrawal failure I get a response that they'd like a new photo of my government ID - the one I had already supplied 6 months or so prior. I send a new photo exactly 21 minutes later. That was 4 days ago and counting. And yet again, no communication at all since. This is now going to wind up costing me quite a bit out-of-pocket in penalties/interest for the missed deadlines. I now have very low confidence that Kraken is the place to cash any amount out to FIAT. They fail at basic customer service when people are placing their faith and trust in them to do what they promise.
  6. Welcome! Your english is very good. It's much better than my french . I think anyone who makes the effort to speak two (or more) languages should be admired.
  7. I don't think that would help you much anyway, it has "/beta" at the end.
  8. Fantastic as always! One question though. Referring to XRPChat: "It also has a dearth of historical archives, resources, and links to help new investors, or even academic researchers." Did you mean to say wealth instead of dearth? Since that's I think the opposite of what you meant.
  9. You're a good sport Max Entropy. I don't often (or ever?) agree with your viewpoints but I appreciate the way you take the sometimes very hostile pushback in stride.
