  1. Do NOT use the jatchili wallet with the Safari browser. Jatchili wallet isn't maintained anymore and there is a bug that only seems to exist with the Safari browser where you can lose the xrp. It did worked for me fine with Firefox in the past and I like its simpleness but unless you know what you are doing there probably are better options. I don't know what is the best offline generator at this moment. You can have a look at the links page. You can also try Xumm which is seen as a reliable app that should be able to generate secrets but I haven't tested it. Generally, a hardware wallet works very well and keeps your key secure as long you keep a copy of the keys somewhere. Handling raw secret keys on an internet connected computer maybe allows malware to steal it. Using a hardware wallet prevents that, while you can still sign transactions. If you have the money I think a Ledger Nano (from the original webshop, NOT from ebay or unreliable sources) works well and is secure.
  2. None, but there are plenty of options See https://www.xrpchat.com/links/ Best is to generate the secret offline on an unused computer that's not connected to the internet to make sure the secretkey is only for you. Always backup the secret and check if it still works, try it with small amount of xrp first
  3. Oh that project is still alive? Seems they changed the website layout too this month. And even their Twitter account only has tweets from this month: https://twitter.com/mojaloop Seems they shifted gear. The well prepared project 2020 (cause shock, reset global financial system and blame something while maintaining control) starting to evolve? (/hides)
  4. Everyone please be careful As with any new exchange be sure you know who they are There was a Twitter account claiming to be NitroEx which is now down (search NitroEx at Google, first result) There seem to be two domains, nitrotoken and nitroex The nitrotoken company registration number (GMT 26584529) does not seem to exist The website nitroex.io immediatly fowards to the non existing site: https://www.nitorex.io/ With the 'www' prefix the site says 503 service unavailable: it does not work at this moment. My opinion: stay away for now
  5. Interesting that YouTube / Google ads still facilitate *very* obvious scams. Ripple sueing YouTube did not help, some giveaway scam video's are up for weeks again and placed as top result when searching for XRP at YouTube. Twitter also fails miserably. My advice is that the techcompanies hire me, or some kid that just finished school, as just basic AI / better algo / improved monitoring could change the situation a lot. What they allow for years now is seriously unprofessional and unresponsible. The reporting response is also very bad. All Google ads should have a direct Report button instead of some confusing and hard to find complaint form that's hidden somewhere, with quick response. In history a popular livestreamer asked many thousands of viewers to report an ongoing giveaway livestream scam, I also did multiple reports, the XRP community at Twitter and Discords reported it too and it stayed online for several days. 100s and maybe 1000s of reports was not enough. It was number one in the results, with a hacked account, with faked identity, with many many thumbs down and YouTube did not care. I hope governments punish these companies and Ripple has success sueing YouTube.
  6. Interesting, the Shapeshift CEO always seemed anti banks / anti regulation to me and they did not have KYC for a long time. Whatever the reason is (changed opinion, or just focused at generating more revenue?), nice to see XRP is added to another platform
  7. The mentioned website is a scam. Many people got small transaction with spam in memo field https://www.xrpchat.com/topic/33970-ripple-claim-xrp-mumbo-jumbo/?tab=comments#comment-805685
  8. Interesting. If I'm correct Bitcoin mines about 1800 Bitcoin each day, which I assume is at least partially sold to the market to cover operation costs. That's about 1800 * 8600 = 15,480,000 usd of NEW Bitcoin each day So about 54,000 new bitcoin (552 million usd) each month. Ok, not all if them are immediatly sold but they can if they want to. Compare that with XRP's 13m usd strategic sales in a quarter Ok.. we still got Jed too, selling 771k xrp (185k usd) each day, about 5,6m each month. And perhaps some other big investors ... can we go up now ?
  9. You're welcome. Hope I don't go too much offtopic here but have a look at this too: https://ar.linkedin.com/in/silvina-lisanti-44a2a029/en
  10. See this post for some more speculative companies / domains:
  11. IT'S A SCAM Scammers are trying this method to lure xrp holders to the domain. It redirects you to a domain with unicode letters that looks like 'ripple.com' but actually has different letters. It also uses a faked Bithomp site (BithoNp dot com) to steal your secret key if you enter one. Do not enter your secret keys anywhere. Do not send xrp to strangers, do not download untrusted apps etc.
  12. A quick search indeed shows there are likely some personal issues (which is ultra common so nothing wrong there) Imo it's fine he is taking a break and likely has nothing to do with Ripple's performance or company culture or whatever
  13. I'm a bit confused by lightnet dot systems and lightnet dot io websites Especially lightnet dot systems website shows some app with some redflags to me: - 'Get it on Google Play' icon links to app - 'Available on the app store' icon link does not work (Apple is usually more secure/restricted) - Spelling errors and weird stuff in charts - Too many good promises imo Regarding lightnet dot io team, i randomly checked a few names: - "Trithip Sivakrishkul" no results - "Athi Pisuthipun" not much - Photo quality differences DO NOT INSTALL UNTRUSTED APPS!!! I've seen cryptocoins set up multiple completely fake partner company websites and identities Note I only checked it for a few minutes, do your own research
  14. @LeonidasH perhaps interesting for someone who seems to keep track of everything Ripple/XRP related: https://twitter.com/AinoLaadne Recent speculative activity: nubi (paypal related, same day had 'pp-receiver' subdomain activated), currencybird, sotados, transferdirecto, SAP, TCSX (Tata Consultancy Services?), North Bank BCA, b&t corretora, elkapp Also some recent annual reports that contains fresh references to Ripple. FIS integrates Ripple stuff for example (FIS actually doing implementation which is quite cool I think), bacflorida etc
