  1. Were do the whales trade

    Bitstamp, etc where ever has the best liquidity. Also OTC desks at exchanges, and OTC shops like Cumberland, Genesis, itbit and richfund
  2. Something Strange on XRP Charts

    are you talking about ledger number (about 36,569,000) increasing uniformly or accounts (about 1,138,000)? They are represent two different things. You would expect to see the ledger increasing pretty much uniformly, but not necessarily the accounts.
  3. Something Strange on XRP Charts

    XRP Charts runs off ripple data v2 (I think) which isn't up to date at all times At the bottom of the screen you will see a disclaimer that the data may be delayed or incorrect.
  4. Bitstamp ??

    It is, how else would you tell someone where to send you XRP? The main reason you wouldn't want to post your address would be because of privacy concerns. If you have a large position, you probably wouldn't want to advertise that the account with 1,000,000 XRP belongs to @xaaxa, as it would make you a target.
  5. Thank you @Professor Hantzen, the link provided was very helpful.
  6. I am going to be in charge of setting up new wallets for a few friends and family, I never worried about this when i was working for myself, but now I am thinking I would like to be sure I understand what I am working with, i don't want to bring others down with me if i screw up. Is there any way to determine if your system has the proper amount of entropy prior to creating keys? I did a search here (all the results were related to Max) and some googling without much luck, but found this command recommended for Linux systems: cat /proc/sys/kernel/random/entropy_avail Assuming this command provides an accurate picture of randomness available, is there a certain benchmark you would want to achieve? I am getting 3800-3900 consistently on my main system, and 2900-3000 in a vm.... wondering if that is sufficient. thanks in advance
  7. Supply Chain on XRPL

    There are ways around the 3 digit codes. You can also issue currency of other types by using a 160-bit (40-character) hexadecimal string such as 015841551A748AD2C1F76FF6ECB0CCCD00000000 as the currency code. To prevent this from being treated as a different currency code type, the first 8 bits MUST NOT be 0x00 https://ripple.com/build/currency-format/#nonstandard-currency-codes But I agree with @KarmaCoverage, this would not be helpful for XRPL.
  8. rippled sign offline

    I know of these two: http://ripplerm.github.io/ripple-wallet/ - tools tab then submit tab Also this new wallet https://kyteapp.co/ click Submit air gapped transaction It's still under development but functioning and is looking pretty good to me, he has a youtube video walking thru the offline signed payment process. I think this will be great for the people who don't want to dig in too far but still want to be safe with their secret keys. He is also very accommodating if you have suggestions for features. As an example after a request he quickly added QR code support for the tx blob in case you want to create on a totally offline computer rather than use the same pc as he does in his video.

  9. Ripple and Privacy

    This is why I think you will see wallet provider services take off. You will probably have to pay the standard 25bps per tx, but you will see the payment come from an address with aggregate balances, similar to now when you see transfers out of exchanges. You can keep the majority of your holdings in a cold wallet like a savings account and use the provider as a checking account. I understand your concern, but this will end up being a non issue.
  10. When i first saw https://xrpcharts.ripple.com/#/transactions and how many transactions were hitting every few seconds I was really interested to watch, but with all the offer create and offer cancels it was almost impossible to follow. Then Gatehub came out with this page https://gatehub.net/live and it was even nicer to look at but the offers were still there and it was still hard to follow. So i decided i would try to make my own and not show the offer related transactions. This was a big struggle for me at first, I never have coded anything besides some entry level useless stuff using logo( i think this is what it was called, waaay back in the 80's, had the screen draw a boom box) and basic and pascal back in the 90's which i remember nothing of. Long story short I found Steven Zeiler's youtube tutorial on building a listener (thanks if you are reading!) then struggled for months trying to learn node js and js, then html css etc. (now i see I probably didn't take the fastest or correct path) but i finally got it to work as i was originally thinking. Its not as pretty as ripple charts or gatehub live and doesn't show properly on mobile but it shows me what i want to see, and i figured other people might be interested as well. Now that I have it working I know there are more options to add (like adding a tx type filter, etc), but I have spent enough time , lost interest in going further and want to check out different things now that i have learned some basic coding. Maybe someone else will be in the same spot i was and take it to the next level or make it look nice or just let it die, doesn't matter to me - i got what i wanted out of this already. I think it is cool to watch how much real value is moving every second on the RCL/XRPL and this is an easy way for others who haven't seen it before to get a glimpse . Here is the link (only shows payments): https://kakoyla.github.io/streamer/ I struggled with whether or not to leave the default ws connection as S1, but i doubted that anyone who hasn't seen the stream before would be able to find another websocket connection to use. I also figured I can always delete that option if it causes problems, so just let me know if it does. There are probably lots of bugs, and i am sure anyone who knows how to code will not be happy looking at mine, i have seen people arguing online about tabs vs spaces and I have no idea what either of those mean so you can probably imagine what my code looks like. I also made a node app that runs in the terminal that I kind of like using better, it shows all tx types besides offers and plays a sound each time a tx hits, so you can run it in the background and listen to the volume, but there are no filters or base currency options. https://github.com/kakoyla/Streamer-terminal I know these aren't something the experienced devs will find interesting but i am sharing in case it helps someone else get involved in learning to code. Having something specific to work on when learning really helped me keep pushing and stick it out to the end, coding tutorials found online were a dead end for me.
  11. Seeking dev community

    How fast are you able to do this? 3 seconds is in relation to updating the list based on new transactions in each ledger right? or are you able to create the whole list in seconds as well?
  12. that's shapeshift (https://bithomp.com/explorer/rwfGzgd4bUStS9gA5xUhCmg1J86TMtmGMo) https://shapeshift.io/#/coins with their service you can convert to different coins, they probably sent it there, and converted it to btc or monero or something else to wash it.
  13. Rippled Setup Survey

    @zenkertFYI Rippled =https://ripple.com/build/rippled-setup/
  14. Rippled Setup Survey

    how could you get any actionable info from this? you can already see all nodes IP addresses with the topology request... edit: i really am just looking for hosting ideas, if you are scared dont answer
  15. I currently have a stock rippled installed on my laptop and boot it up when needed. I am thinking about getting one up and running in the cloud, but prices seem a bit high to do it just for kicks. Looking to see what people are using, how much they are paying and what size memory they are running with. Any suggestions for hosted setup options or advice for trouble spots you wish you knew ahead of time are appreciated.
