  1. Notice of variation of our Terms of Use I'm not used to reading this kind of legalese. Are these terms fair and typical of the industry? Seems to me they imply if any shit happens, it's all my fault and loss and none of Bitstamp's.
  2. The XRP ledger did not exist then, it started in 2012.
  3. The wallet you originally used is irrelevant, as long as you have the secret key, a long string of characters beginning with s. Download Xumm app to your smartphone, carefully type in your secret key and you will have access to the XRP in your account. Anyone who has the secret key controls the XRP, so be very cautious and keep it backed up in a safe place.
  4. I believe Bitstamp has an XRP/GBP pair, but volume is low. Maybe Binance Jersey? But you would have to convert XRP to BTC or ETH first because they don't have XRP pairs AFAIK.
  5. The facility to ignore chats by selected people in the Zerpbox has been removed. Please can we have it back?
  6. Download Xumm app by XRPLabs onto your smartphone, very carefully type in the secret key and you're done. Your XRP lives in the ledger, not in any wallet you use to access it. Anyone who has the secret key has control of the asset.
  7. I'm sure I saw Wietse say on Twitter that this would be okay, but that it would make it easy to link one owner to several XRPL accounts, and possibly undesirable for that reason.
  8. But the MessageKey ETH-like address is the destination for the Spark airdrop, so it's not meaningless to the Flare network. And ETH addresses have both upper case and lower case characters, like this: 0xf92864ad4C4A3d3Ed4e6C28009A8c3da7768CA55. If you convert lower case to upper then it's a different address, isn't it? And the original address cannot be reconstructed from the MessageKey version because no algorithm can tell which letters were lower case. So how does the Spark get sent to the correct address for which you generated the key pair?
  9. One thing I'd like explained: why are we told to convert all lower case letters in the ETH address to upper case? Isn't that destroying information since 'A' is different from 'a' in base 58 (or whatever it is) crypto addressing? I can't just substitute capitals for lower case when I'm sending to an address on the Ethereum network, so how can it work for Flare? Won't the Spark airdrops be misdirected?
  10. Tool to see if your XRPL account is enabled: Flare airdrop checker Neither tested nor recommended by me, but no reason I can see to think it's not legit. Source code available.
  11. No more risk than signing any other kind of transaction on the XRPL.
  12. #!/bin/bash read -p "ETH address you want to convert to XRPL MessageKey? " string string=${string//0x} string=${string^^} echo "Done: 02000000000000000000000000${string}" A simple bash script I wrote to use instead of Wietse's online tool to convert an ETH address to the required format. Use offline in conjunction with Bithomp Tools to set your MessageKey.
  13. Re generating new key pairs: the latest MEW website and app will not reveal the private key after wallet creation. However you can download the vintage myetherwallet zip from Github , extract and run it offline. Just go into the dist directory and load index.html into your browser. You can save the address and private key by printing to a file within Firefox, for example.
