  1. If your aim is to get them all offline, then yeah, I'd probably convert them to euros and send on to an exchange. Do it in a period when the price is going down and you may even end up with a few extra zerps to cover the fees! But be prepared to lose a small amount of your total in case that doesn't work out (ie in fees and exchange rate). Personally, I'm leaving my small percentage in Revolut for the aforementioned reasons until Coinbase get their act together and add XRP in UK.
  2. Yeah, I have a small amount of my holdings (about 4 - 5%) in Revolut in case I find myself away from my Ledger Nano S for a period of time that coincides with a parabolic run up. It's dead easy to switch back to fiat on your phone to cash in at least some gains. There may be a better way to achieve the same goal. You can also use it to spend as fiat, if you're into that sort of thing. Trouble is, you can't withdraw to any other wallet, so I won't put any more in there (my long-term stash was purchased elsewhere and stored offline). When they first added crypto, they made it seem like withdrawal was on the roadmap, but 18 months on and I've seen no evidence of that becoming a reality. Plus, despite being FCA regulated (in the UK), their crypto deposits aren't insured, unlike say Coinbase. So you're trusting that they won't get hacked. And as an aside, from recent articles, it seems they're not the most ethical employer either. Doesn't instil overall confidence. Basically they're convenient, but they come with a whole stack of caveats.
  3. And it's that tiny 0.000045% doubt of "would be strange if not", that I wanted to rule out. If I'm going to put my hard-earned money in this wallet, I need to do my own due diligence and be 100% confident that it's safe for sure. Now having worked through this little exercise, I think I'm on the path to your level of certainty
  4. Thank you @Warbler, I did actually manage to figure it out late last night off the back of @Flintstone's suggestion. Once I'd realised that an offline transaction was even possible (still blowing my mind), I did a bit more research and got to your tool. I was going to do a short write-up here on how I did it for other newbies, but that blog piece summed it perfectly. Thanks for the awesome tools Warbler; I've been holding xrp for a while using a Nano S, but only now just starting to explore the tech in more depth. It's a whole new world! And thank you for the initial suggestion Flintstone, I verified it with a donation to stjudes.
  5. Hi Warbler - I was looking to create a paper wallet, and had decided to use the Bithomp offline version downloaded from Github (great tool you've built there btw!) Is there any easy way of testing the generated key? i.e. How can I know that the wallet / key pair I create will work when I come to import them into another wallet in X years time, when the value has increased to a point where I'd be mortified to discover it doesn't work and the fortune is lost forever? (Nooooooooooo!)
