  1. Omni shut down their business: https://omni.co/
  2. So, this means they're decrypting secret keys from people who have used the same e-mail/password in some other sites. Thus, no need for a brute force attack, and in this scenario it doesn't matter how strong your password is. In principle, people that have used a unique password to access their accounts in Gatehub should be safe. Either way, if you are looking to keep your funds in Gatehub (not advisable), an additional protection method for people that have reused the same password accross several sites is the following: 1- Change your Gatehub password now to something nev
  3. Forget about 2FA. Your secret key is merely encrypted and saved in one of gatehub’s database servers. The only way to decrypt it is through the use of your password, with some unknown algorithm. This is why you can view your secret key just by inputting your password on the site. Someone probably managed to retrieve all of gatehub’s database encrypted secret keys, and then brute forced the heck of them offline. The secret key just needs to start with an ‘s’ and have a fixed number of characters. It was an inside job I guess... only way to know the decryption algorithm! I r
  4. Hello sir! Yes, that’s exactly what I’m scared of.
  5. Hello all, As everyone is already aware, SEC published a so called "Framework for Analysis of Digital Assets" document a few days ago. I've read it diagonally and there were red flags for XRP everywhere. You may have a different interpretation though. Because of this, some speculation came to light in the zerpbox, which I'm now bringing to the masses. This is JoelKatz wallet address: https://bithomp.com/explorer/r3gRpQRDdu7pzPhM9nDmXMgskbJ6vwTDbB Looks like he's been dumping his funds in coinbase recently. If we look closer into his past, you'
  6. "The transaction failed because the provided paths did not have enough liquidity to send anything at all. This could mean that the source and destination accounts are not linked by trust lines." Reference: https://developers.ripple.com/tec-codes.html
  7. It's not a coincidence that Ripple's executives keep using these as examples for their use case. This time they've blended it in with a new article on Ripple's official site: https://ripple.com/insights/a-vision-for-the-internet-of-value/ A good read.... Regards, pvap
  8. Well, if you have to put it like that... then my second guess is.... https://www.ripplefoods.com
  9. Well, Google Ventures invested both in Ripple and Uber. So, I definitely have my bets on Uber as being one of them.
  10. Some of the trophies are unrelated to the "puzzle transaction". They were reported in the following dates: - 2017-03-30 01:18:00 UTC - 2017-01-16 05:20:19 GMT - 2016-10-11 03:00:34 GMT Of course, these could've been created by the project founder himself, to raise suspicion. But there's no concrete evidence of this. Still, I think it's an interesting subject to follow.
  11. Let me just add that if anyone is interested in knowing a little more about the algorithm that they're using behind the curtains, here's a good read: https://lbc.cryptoguru.org/man/theory I think the threat is very real, and honestly a bit upsetting.
  12. Well, that statistic was from his sole computational effort only. The project than evolved to become distributed. 54 hits in 1,5 years is impressive!
  13. I believe they're covering all the private keys in a 2^160 range. Something running in their favor is the fact that a public address can be generated from more than 1 private key (theoretically). So, we don't need to hold the original private key that was used to generate the public key. We just need a matching one.
