  1. Doesn't sound like it to me! Be careful.
  2. Download Revolut for your smartphone. For £10k or more transfers, pay the yearly fee of around £70 (from memory) to get fee-free currency exchanges. Then transfer GBP from your bank to Revolut as GBP (ie no fees). When you want to convert to EUR, do it in Revolut and it’s instantly converted at the spot rate. This is much better than any bank rate (even if they advertise no fees!) and by paying the yearly Revolut premium fee you’ll get all future exchanges to/from EUR free of fees too (relevant if you plan to add to your stack in months to come). Once changed to EUR, send to the Bitstamp account as a SEPA transfer. No fees, takes usually about a day or so. Then buy XRP/EUR pair as you desire. £100 starter should be no problem at Bitstamp. I’ve done this process many times. Saves big time on bank fees and even services such as TransferWise which still have quite high fees for large exchanges of GBP in comparison. If you’re only buying a few hundred pounds worth, it won’t make much difference but for larger transfers, it’s probably the best way to go at present. XRP/EUR pair good liquidity at Bitstamp. Hope this helps.
  3. Shocking: "Mobile phone shop staff 'enabling Sim swap scams'": https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-46047714
  4. It’s a peer-to-peer service. The sellers set their price at market plus a markup amount. Read the How to Buy and How to Sell pages in same help section I referred you to earlier.

  6. @MRM - that's great, glad it helped. If you dig into the Settings of the Ledger Live software as per the screenshot below, you can choose what rate provider to use for the calculations. Binance doesn't seem to be an option but there are others to choose from. Try changing it and seeing how the values differ (taking into account price movement, of course).
  7. @MRM I think you may be misunderstanding the purpose of the Nano S. It is a hardware device to help you manage your address on the XRP Ledger. Your assets only ever exist on the ledger. The wallet you choose to use (the Nano S in this case) merely permits you access to your address and assets on that ledger, and the software interface to the Nano S shows an indicative value of your assets in USD or EUR or whatever by multiplying the number of XRP you hold in that ledger address by a reference price obtained from some source (probably an average of several exchange prices, or the price at CMC, or similar). You have not lost any value - it is just estimating the value of those assets it manages at that moment in time. The price at your exchange (Exodus?) may well be slightly different to the one used for the reference calculation by the Nano S software, hence the difference in the shown value of the assets you are describing. But the actual (real) value of your assets is always going to be = number of XRP x price you can sell them at on an exchange somewhere. That's the accurate value of your assets at any one moment in time. In order to achieve that value, you can use your Nano S to "send" the XRP to the exchange's address for the XRP ledger fee (currently 0.0012 XRP, ie. tiny!). That is the only fee that any transfer of assets between accounts will have to pay (it's the XRP ledger fee), plus the cost of any exchange deposit or trading fees of course, which is a different matter entirely. I hope this helps.
  8. Yes. Across EUR pairs it seems. On Bitstamp; can’t see it on other exchanges.
  9. Just be aware though, that all you are doing here is transferring your risk to that of one company, Uphold. You have to be sure they will be solvent for long enough to extract your money to your bank account at the max amount per day for as long as it takes. Use of a crypto Exchange to make the switch from XRP to EUR (or USD), and then the transfer of that amount to a USD or EUR holding bank account, might be a good alternative choice to consider, and then you can transfer to GBP accounts as you wish (or partial hold in USD or EUR accounts as desired). What guarantees do Uphold (or any other exchange or company) provide to your capital if they can't cope or are hit with a scandal, while your money is sitting there waiting to be extracted at 10k/day? The banks aren't much better but at least there is some protection. Worth exploring other options, perhaps.
  10. @proman121 Yes, it seemed to be broken earlier. Now though it seems to be working OK again - try again and see.
  11. The account does not exist on the TestNet, for some reason. Best to generate a test account direct at this website: https://developers.ripple.com/xrp-test-net-faucet.html
  12. Fabulous. I'll be sure to test it in an offline cold OS configuration. If you'd like me to assist here at some point, let me know! Keep up the great work - it's appreciated!
  13. Exciting project - I look forward to seeing it develop! I use a combination of Bithomp, ripplerm, theworldexchange etc to perform actions offline from a Tails USB key on a Mac. Would be great if your project has the capability to be used for offline use (I see that's in the roadmap) on a secure platform computer - perhaps even an end-user downloadable ISO that includes Linux and your tool pre-installed, to aid faster adoption for those wanting such things. I look forward to seeing more. Well done
  14. @Warbler It's a MacBook Air booted into Tails Linux running the Tor Browser. Screenshot attached. If .main-box is increased to 480px and fields-wide to 300px, it fits an address in ok. Otherwise, it looks like this (about 3 chars short): A specific use-case, I know! Thanks for the easy to use tool - love the ability to do offline, independent transactions from one tool for both normal secret addresses and Ledger addresses! Great idea. QR will top it off. edit: screen size is 1440x900 FF
