As probably most of you know from my previous post, my ledger was probably compromised and I lost 18 000 xrp to some fradulent hacker that even has a freaking facebook page, but police is too lazy to even try catch the perpetrator
Now I am sure that there are critics etc. but forget that. Now I want to invest again and I want to prevent this sh** from happening to me or anyone else again.
Now What I am about to do is this:
I will buy a laptop, not the best not the worst ,cheap enough to do the job.
Buy ledger nano s from ORIGINAL LEDGER WEBSITE ONLY.
Buy new 8gb usb stick from reputable seller like currys pc world (in UK).
So what I want to do is buy the ledger nano and initialize it 3 - 4 times to make sure that the recover seed is not the same each time.
Initialise it in an actual USB wall socket rather than connect it to the computer.
Write the recovery seed down on a piece of paper and put that safely away.
Now with the laptop, reinstall the windows to clean win 10 install. Never connect it to the internet. Go on a clean pc, put ledger live and antivirus installator on it. Connect the usb to the laptop and install ledger live/antivirus. Connect the initialised ledger to the laptop and download relevant apps like xrp etc. Save the public wallet address in text document and put it on the usb stick. Delete all the apps from ledger nano. Now just buy the xrp on my pc with the public address i saved on usb stick and connect ledger nano only if needed on the laptop. If I wanted to check the balance just put my address on a bithomp or some checker like that.
That way I think no one ever can steal my xrp again? Is there any idea on how to make it better? I know I wont connect the laptop never to internet and not get windows update etc but that shouldnt matter because no one can hack it when its not connected to internet?
-edit, already ahve the laptop - quite old acer laptop 2gb ram, intel pentium 250gb hdd. It was quite cheap
