    NightJanitor got a reaction from PhiGuy in a few user reported their gatehub wallet been hacked and XRP sent to r9do2Ar8k64NxgLD6oJoywaxQhUS57Ck8k   
    That's a good engineering question.
    My question would be about the timing, based solely upon someone posting way back in this thread that GateHub had recently hired a new security firm to do an audit.  If that's true, then some new people just recently got access to their systems to do a code review (or some older people got nervous when they found things were about to get tighter)?
    That was the clue-iest thing I saw in this thread.  Though, GateHub *could* have had longer knowledge of the breach and hired the team after the fact, without saying anything.

    Happy Friday, everyone (or happy Saturday, depending on your time zone)! There's a new blog post and tool on the XRP Ledger Dev Portal. This time it's about the xrp-ledger.toml file, and why and how you can use it to identify yourself to the masses.
    Read the blog post here: https://xrpl.org/blog/2019/labeling-the-internet-of-value.html Use the new checker here: https://xrpl.org/xrp-ledger-toml-checker.html (Try entering "alloy.ee" or "mduo13.com") If you run a validator or some other XRP-related side project, setting up an xrp-ledger.toml file could be a nice, short weekend project. Have fun!

    I don't know about this old deal.  But I do notice that almost all of the deals I see, lately, have the word "committment" in them - which is an investing term of art that means "yeah, maybe, if you clear some hurdles and meet some milestones, we'll actually release some amount of funds to you" - which indicates higher quality risk management (on the infrastructure investment deals).
    (I realize nobody wants to hear that, because it's not a prediction that XYZ will be $333 by 12/25... but it's a sign of maturity and prudence, in Ripple's dealings, nonetheless.)

    Look, this is just people being freaked out, after Gatehub - it's not about cryptology, cryptography, 2fa, hashes, salts, peppers, or herbs and spices.  The methods already exist:
    We still have the problem of no "user friendly (and secure)" wallet...  No pictures, no buttons, no GUI - whatever.  Nerds don't get this and don't think it's important - "just install node.js and then build this binary thingie off github, you rubes!" - I'm sorry, but that's just the ground truth and someone needs to say it, because that's what most people hear.
    Wietse Wind has come closest to user-friendly multi-sign thingie, but even that attempt - from like a year ago - was not simple enough and required people to use the testnet - like they know what that is - so that they could familiarize themselves with it such that they wouldn't **** anything up.  Anyway, point being, LACK OF USER FRIENDLY TOOLS.

    If anyone wants to do a traditional investing subforum, maybe I'll play - lots of young ppl here who only know "investing" through crypto and lots of older ppl trying to tell them to diversify over multiple asset classes - but, anyway, without commenting on the intricacies of the federal funds rate, myself, I don't see what this particular post has to with XRP...
    Also, your mom's probably not thrilled that you posted this.  I'd remove it, before the board goes back to being all male............. if you know what I mean.
