  1. 1+1= Gatehub should e-mail all users asap to have them move funds to hosted wallets, safe addresses or re-key them. @gatehub@Silkjaer@alloyxrp@enej Unless they know exactly which addresses were exposed and who to contact, but that doesn't seem so from the outside. As the nr of victims already seems to outnumber their previous statement:
  2. Yes, he did. Here's an excerpt from one of the FinCEN documents released in 2015:
  3. As stated above, but more specifically: https://ripple.com/build/data-api-tool/#get-account-balances On this page in the top grey box you can change [1] the ripple address, [2] the currency, and [3] the date/time you're interested in before pushing the 'GET request' button.
  4. Correct. Didn´t look at that. I just noticed Bithomp labeled the transaction as ´Rippling´ and checked whether rippling was enabled. Apparently you did. Here it is: https://xrpcharts.ripple.com/#/transactions/959D37D11FC8561CE7F61FDAD31EFC3D22EA88AFC1F9FFDDC5DC20C3707F2771
  5. @Winteriscomming you had 'rippling' enabled when you set up a trustline to ALV. Rippling is a very nice (initial) feature of the XRPL, but nowadays it is of not much use and when you set up a trustline it is best practice to disable rippling for that trustline. When rippling is enabled you allow funds to 'ripple' through the network via your trustline (which will change your account balance). For more info on this, see here: https://ripple.com/build/understanding-the-noripple-flag/ And see here: As this will explain what happened to you here (look at how your address relates to the other nodes involved): https://xrpcharts.ripple.com/#/transactions/FBC334010C45B21379F979D5B88E7DA143647108AFA35B785E8C093A89FA561E
  6. @suanniunai is right, it's Coincheck. Following the recent Coincheck NEM hack a large amount of XRP moved. At first it was speculated to be part of the hack , but it later appeared to be for security reasons (https://xrpcharts.ripple.com/#/transactions/FC32DBF1C0CE6780A669349FEDF7BD9EC18033EB79B3DC8F1ADBAE9B5EAD3EF8) and the destination account was later confirmed to be Coincheck's cold wallet (https://twitter.com/warpaul/status/956930671443812352). The XRP from the cold wallet (rPccPbZH4YBVmjvL4dMMkrX8J3MKGLNApQ) was then moved to rBAyQitUnr2TqrPjmQ2invYwH29fVTyrVd, which is the account you guys are talking about. I don't see why as Coincheck has had a big stake in Ripple for quite some time now. They acquired the majority of their XRP for about half a cent. There are reasons to assume that Coincheck was the FI acquiring XRP as mentioned in the first report by Miguel Vias (via the ~reliefcurrency account). Imho their early investments and acquiring allowed them to payback the >400M USD to all their customers so quickly after the NEM hack (which btw probably resulted in crypto wide selling pressure the last weeks/months in addition to the hackers selling via a site they set up on the darknet).
  7. @TiffanyHayden @nikb ILP pathfinding. This will make it more than a storage device of course, but an app with proper implementation of ILP pathfinding in combination with some solid hardware authorization has great potential imho. Like the pathfinding in the original RL wallet (its unfortunate this feature gets so little attention nowadays). Trustworthiness of the dev(s) involved here would also be a big pro compared to other wallets (if formalized ofc).
  8. Thanks for sharing. It doesn't bring your funds back, but it could definitely help/inform others! I think I just did. I'll PM you.
  9. @ThePowerOfOne sorry to hear that.. There are so many possibilities that it is difficult to help you. But here are some suggestions (also to make others aware). The most probable is that someone got a hold of your secret key. How did you store it? Writing on paper (if so, who could have access to it?). Or electronically, and if so how? In a document on your PC or mobile (both could have been comprimised) or for example by making a photo? The latter is a very common error and reason for loss of cryptofunds, as photo's are often stored automatically in ICloud/DropBox/Drive, and such storages are comprimised easily. Also, consider the source where you downloaded your wallet. Not only the type/name of the wallet, but more importantly the url you downloaded it from. What you could do, is to Google the address(es) the funds were send to. This could very well be a dead end, but when I helped some people in the past and did so, it appeared that the same hacker was involved in previous losses of funds. There are posts on some of the malicious addresses that you will find by using Google, also on this forum, and from these posts you perhaps could also learn how the hacker operated (especially in case the same addresses are involved).
  10. As long as digital coins are not in everyone's wallet, then the chance of it becoming broadly accepted in stores and online are low (chicken vs egg). It seems way too early for that, but this can change very quickly. Bitcoin seemed promising a few years ago for POS payments, but it failed. This could be different for XRP for three reasons: it's instant, it's scalable, and costs are low. More info here: https://ripple.com/files/xrp_overview.pdf It indeed is not marketed by RL that way currently. And rightfully so, it probably would be too early (for many reasons). As also stated by RL before, first provide the rails (tech, regulatory affairs, etc), and only then move on. In recent years payments first were not excluded by RL (in the very beginning), but when progressing they seem to have adapted to the conditions where they were operating (fincen, demand/need/feedback of banks, etc) and focussed on other use cases. And succesfully so, it seems. But if the opportunity arrises, don't you think they will promote XRP to facilitate POS payments? If you look at their public statements I think this is already changing compared to previous years. And it makes sense: their incentive (sitting on their pile of XRP) is huge. With all things changing currently in Japan, I dont see why XRP cant play a role here for example. The focus now is on Bitcoin being roled out massively (e.g. https://news.bitcoin.com/rollout-of-260000-bitcoin-accepting-stores-in-japan-begins/), but why wouldnt this be XRP as well? Especially considering SBI's (and their consortium) incentive (they have a huge stake in both XRP and in RL). Also XRP is better suited for this use case than any other coin: instant, scalable, low cost (https://ripple.com/files/xrp_overview.pdf), infrastructure, KYC and AML compliant (https://ripple.com/files/ripple_solutions_guide.pdf), and even more decentralized than other coins soon (https://ripple.com/insights/xrp-ledger-decentralizes-expansion-55-validator-nodes/). This volatility issue was the same with Bitcoin, but was taken care of with instant exchange to the currency of choice. And hey, it's Ripple, RCL/interledger seems perfect for this (provided there will be enough liquidity, which is being worked on). TLDR: imho it's too soon for that, as the right conditions are not there yet. But XRP (together with Interledger) seems perfect for it, so I dont see any reason why RL wouldnt jump on that bandwagon as soon as the opportunity is there. Untill that time, as @Professor Hantzen also said, it seems that XRP will be used 'behind the scenes' first (also for POS payments). Give it some years...
  11. Maybe they should start with the liquidity of their own token... I know.. I know.. just starting... But on a more serious note: Nice to hear you trust the team, but how should we as outsiders assess this? I see the potential re liquidity on GateHub, which is great. But why should the token itself, that you have now listed, be interesting if we are not even able to see who or what is behind it? This is the info that is available on the team on their own website: Nothing but an address on the Virgin Islands...
  12. Interesting excerpt from the Zerpbox (so many messages nowadays that one easily misses the interesting ones): The XRP ecosystem desperately needs high quality trusted wallets. JK involved in such a wallet would add a seal of trust that imho is very important. We´re spoiled with great news recently, but I think this is fantastic news.
  13. @nkarthi and @shimbalama in both cases where your accounts were emptied (https://charts.ripple.com/#/transactions/8FC3220544E78C96D9D2D8BFA48B3E534E22E77C8DD4DAAA298EA51DEAE1B321) and (https://charts.ripple.com/#/transactions/F8FE3D07E22019CFE2009A93741DA2CEC4583D7930269130363C8DF75F82B2A7) this was done by a specific version of the RippleTrade client: rt1.1.32-bugfix-2-ge152297-dirty. This has happened before. See this post by @Warbler and further info in that thread: Note that this could be a coincidence, but it could also mean the same hacker (or group of hackers) is involved.
  14. If you haven't already, I recommend to read the post by @tommytrain here on current developments in India. Very interesting read. Great to see what technology can do for society/economy. Wonderful opportunity for Ripple. Btw, Ripple Mumbai office confirmed: "You will develop, scale and operationalize our Mumbai office..."
