  1. Can you confirm how much XRP has been isolated? As reports to date indicate it is less than 2% of the total amount lost?
  2. That success fee can potentially be added to the amount claimed. Additionally no fees will be charged if gatehub compensate individual voluntarily or for funds recovered by the police or other LEA. Success fee only applies to funds HC directly retrieve on behalf of their clients. The solicitors have costs including hiring junior and senior (QC) counsel, cyber asset location retrieval firm etc, all at financial risk to themselves if the case is unsuccessful. Opponents cost insurance is also taken out of their own account. So unless individuals wish to take all the financial risk themsel
  3. According to Gatehub they are emailing affected users and updating their website blog shortly
  4. Gatehub have just released this information at conclusion of initial investigation: Our Security Team has concluded the first phase of an extensive forensic investigation intothe recent cyber attack on GateHub. A public statement with more information will be published on our blog soon. We have identified the accounts that were targeted in this attack and the information that was compromised. According to our records, the perpetrator gained unauthorized access to the following information: Email Hashed password Hashed recovery key Encrypted XRP ledger wallets sec
  5. BA was just an example of a hack and decisive action by the regulator. ICO can order compensation as well as issue fines and it relates to all aspects of personal data. Their prime responsibility is protect individuals affected or potentially affected by data breach and not the company. Gatehub have now contacted the ICOas they are registered as tier 1 organisation with ICO...... Registration number:ZA198432 Date registered:05 August 2016 Registration expires:04 August 2020 Payment tier:Tier 1 Data controller:Gatehub Limited Address:88-90 Hatton Garden Lo
  6. This is the fine that company which had a data breach faces in the the UK where there was no financial harm to its customers, there are still a lot of options open once Gatehub make their next statement stating what they know. Regardless they the ICO will investigate as this is under EU jurisdiction laws as well but it will take time (@Gatehub cannot refuse to cooperate as that means potential further court action by the state regulator against company directors I.e prison if found guilty of any alleged wrongdoing in law ) : British Airways faces a fine of £183m for a data breach
  7. One approach will be to see how XRP is returned (get that first then hit them for more via legal avenues) and their explanation then seek specialist legal advice on whether the case a) can succeed b) company has assets enough to make it worthwhile. There are laws within EU and member countries ((UK) and Slovenia 🇸🇮 with regards holding companies responsible for negligence involving data and subsequent financial harm. It will take time and likely involve paying up to 25% of any compensation to law firm involved and willing to take it on plus insurance to cover opposing sides costs if unsu
  8. Best thought is that they are too busy preparing the release of a definitive report into the theft, not going to assume anything until then but the longer the silence goes on the greater the uncertainty.
  9. No, as much in the dark as everyone else. Not helped by Gatehub’s silence/lack of updates. Of concern is the now complete cessation of any communication via support or their social media pages (Twitter, Facebook etc). Only XRPforensics team have been giving much appreciated help and they are giving assistance to the investigating LEAs having tracked the funds since theft to cash out. They have been outstanding in their generosity of time and sharing of knowledge.
  10. If they sent it to you in April why didn’t they send it to all registered accounts. I’ve just checked and nothing from Gatehub on those dates. That could have saved everyone affected now. P.s Online chat @ Changelly have requested any specific information can be sent to their support line below. They’ve also said they will be releasing a statement soon to update on what they are doing to help: support@changelly.com   pro@changelly.com
