Desktop Wallet - Creating cold walletsDEFINITIONS Cold Storage (cold wallets) To create a cold wallet, first lets try to use a broadly accepted definition for that: https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Cold_storage Adaptation: In order to keep a reserve of ripple balances offline, I understand that the balances must be held by a key that has never been online and is out of the reach of online thieves. Wallet or Account A pair of public and private cryptographic keys that can hold value and create transactions (Master/Regular Key and Public Key). Wallet File A file that can be opened by a client which will have access to an account's Master/Regular Key in order to create transactions. 1 - Prepare the environment: The higher the level, the more secure. There are many levels of paranoia that one can escalate in order to be 100000000% sure nobody can reach the keys, but lets focus in practical everyday usage. The simplest path, ideal for safe computers and for normal amounts is Level 1 or 2. For those who need more certainty, please read the other levels. You can also mix the methods. Level 1: If you trust your computer is safe, download the client in your current OS and disconnect from any network. Level 2: If you trust your computer is safe, use virtual box to create a VM with a fresh OS (i.e. a clean Ubuntu), open the new OS, update it and download the client in the fresh OS. Level 3: If you trust your computer is safe, use virtual box to create a VM with a fresh OS (i.e. a clean Ubuntu), open the new OS, update it and build your own client from the github repo in the fresh OS. Level 4: If you trust your computer is safe, create an Ubunutu Live USB or CD, boot your machine using this media for a Live CD session, and download the client in the fresh OS or build your own client from the github repo in the fresh OS. Level 5: Buy a new computer meant to be offline forever, turn it on far away from any kind of network connection, download the client (or build it) in another safe computer, disconnect from the internet, copy it to a brand new portable media (i.e. USB) and copy it again to the new computer. Level 6: Suggestions accepted 2 - Create the wallet: In the environment you prepared, open the ripple client, go to create new account/create_an_empty_account, choose a place to save the wallet file. - - if the computer you are will go online again, save the file in an external media and remove the media before reconnecting to the internet. Choose a strong password and you will be presented to the option of saving your Secret Key. Write the Secret Key in a paper, or take a picture from it (not with your mobile phone!) or any other safe method to store it. Save the wallet file in several offline medias (USB), and never use them in your online computer, keep them private. You can use encrypted volumes if you want. Save your password too. The password alone can't do any harm, so you can use traditional password managers and you can have many online backups of it. Save your public key to a text file and backup it (you will need it every time you will send money to this account). Double check to see if the text file matches the public key in the client's top right corner. Close the client, remove the external medias, clean the clipboard. 3 - Activate the wallet: Open the text file with the public key in an online computer. Open one of your online accounts with the client. Send some XRP (50) to the cold wallet's public address. Check the address at https://www.ripplecharts.com/#/graph, or any ledger explorer you trust. DONE! OPTIONAL Validate the wallet: Will you send 1MM USD to this account without validating it? There is a risk balancing thinking you must do now. Offline Validation, by @jn_r, (I wrote a step by step tutorial about creating offline transactions here). If offline validation doesn't work for you, you may try this: In an offline Ubuntu Live CD session, plug the USB with the wallet file in, open the client and open the cold wallet. Remove the USB. Connect to the internet just for the time necessary for the client to show you the account received 50 XRP. If there is 50 XRP in the account, you are all good and you can send your money there. If there is not, there was an error in the process. Close the client, kill the Live CD session. Will this procedure invalidate your cold storage? IDK, up to you. DISCLAIMER Please, follow this instructions if you want at your own risk, this is not in any way professional advice. CONTRIBUTIONS Security experts are invited to step up and improve this method.
First(2nd...) post and question on IOU's
SGerald posted a topic in New MembersHello all. I apologize in advance if this question is in the wrong place or repetitive...I'm new and, frankly, not really sure where to put this question in the context of the available topics. (I created this topic in Marketplace awhile ago and it didn't get any replies...maybe the wrong place to post it?) So I've experimented by buying a basket of IOU's representing different currencies and even bitcoin by using https://www.theworldexchange.net ledger interface, and now I have them just sitting in my XRP wallet. So I understand obviously how to send XRP from wallets to exchanges and such, that's simple...but I don't see any option for these IOU's. I see each has its' own unique address that I assume I could send to, and I guess that's another question. Exchanges: Which ones support and will redeem IOU's representing Dollars, Yen or Bitcoin for example? How can I send these IOU's properly from wallet to wallet? How will I know what addresses to use? How will I know they will be "honored" by the exchange? Is there anything special I need to do with the destination tag or invoice ID? If I send real bitcoin to an IOU address, or IOU Bitcoin to a real address, will the ledger understand what to do, or would that get me screwed? (Not that I want to use Bitcoin, but this is for science.) If the question is repetitive I hope you'll be gentle with me and guide me to the proper resources. Thanks in advance!

Beginners Guide: Desktop WalletPart of the new Community Beginners Guide series. Other guides in the series so far: Beginners Guide: Intro. The purpose and directions behind the guides. Beginners Guide: XRP First Steps. How to acquire your first XRP and other essential first steps. Beginners Guide: Creating a Cold Ripple Wallet (2.0): Featuring the creation a cold/ paper wallet. This was formerly a service provided by Ripply.eu and now Bithomp. Free, simple and easy. Disclaimer: This post features downloading, installing and using a desktop wallet. This wallet is as is and XRPChat accepts no responsibility for any damages and/ or losses incurred etc. Difficulty level: HARD As requested by several members of the XRPChat forum this guide will cover setting up and the first few steps in using a desktop wallet. What is a Desktop Wallet? A desktop wallet stores all its information on a local machine (ie. your computer). It may transact trades online, but key elements remain with the user. Which Wallet to Use XRPChat’s Links & Resources tab features several desktop wallet versions, many of which are enhanced or direct copies of Ripple’s depreciated RippleTrade wallet. What wallet you choose to use depends on your technical comfort level and feature use requirements. Originally this guide was to feature the Rippex Desktop wallet, however, that particular wallet already features extensive steps, tutorials and videos to guide new users. These steps can be found here or by selecting the image to the right. As per the Beginner Guide mission statement we will avoid duplicating efforts already taken by others and instead focus on another wallet, the XRPChat wallet. Obtaining the XRPChat wallet The XRPChat wallet is hosted on GitHub, a trusted repository for source code. Visit the Links & Resources tab on the XRPChat forum Click on Xrp Chat Wallet under Desktop Wallets. This will bring you to the GitHub page. It can also be directly accessed via https://github.com/karl-os/XRP-CHAT-WALLET/releases Select your current operating system. For the remainder of this guide we will be using Windows (7/10). Note: the md5: b94d23f3800ec996716d2f4fb4783ca3 code is a security feature. This is a hash to prove authorship. In this case they should match the codes found here to prove that XRPChat is the one who published the code on GitHub. After selected a zip file will be downloaded (below image, 1) Extract and open (below image, 2 and 3) Install the ‘RippleAdminConsole-1.4.0-rc3’ application (below image, 4) After installation you will be presented with a terms or service/ disclaimer page. Accept after reading You will now be presented with the application home screen Note: This guide assumes you are creating a new wallet and not importing an existing one. Importing, or using some of the other options found on the welcome screen are for more advanced users and should be ignored for new beginners. Select Create new account Select Create an empty account, choose the destination you want the wallet file to be saved in and select save. Enter a new password and select Encrypt account The next screen shows the information entered so far. Your passphrase is your password to access your account. Your Ripple Address is the public key that can be shared or monitored on the ripple network. You can have funds sent to this wallet via this address from any other ripple wallet. Your secret key. Important! A secret key will look like this: sJR7Kolm8pJ7kpB4CbdjsuydwVMpTKPpj. Secret Keys will always start with “s”. This is how you prove ownership over a wallet and gives withdraw rights. DO NOT SHARE After confirming that secret key is written down you will be presented with a notice that the wallet is not activated yet. This wallet will need at least 20 XRP sent to it be activated and to establish a trust line. See here on steps on obtaining your first XRP. Once activated you can see the wallet Overview where it will show all current XRP assets as well as any gateway IOUs you may have Send tab brings up the direct send option. You can enter another ripple address and if required a destination tag (mostly limited to exchanges and/ or gateways) to send assets directly. The Trade tab is where you can place ask/ bid orders and see current markets. You will need to select Advanced (1) to enter the first gateway and currency pair (2). Please confirm with a specific gateway for their ripple address to ensure you have the correct address. Note: Normally there is a 5 XRP cost to each trustline (connected gateways), however there is a special rule in Ripple for new accounts, where you can create your first 2- trustlines even if the account has less than 30 XRP. In other words, when your account is activated with 20 XRP, you already can connect to two gateways and start deposit with fiats/cryptos. * Once entered the current bid, ask and spread information will be shown. Further down the page you have the option to enter your own bid and/or ask price and see the current order books. With that you should have a the basics needed to operate your desktop wallet. * thanks to @ripplerm for explaining this further.
Dear community, in June/July I bought some XRP and sent them to my desktop wallet. I obviously never shared my addresses, the wallet was password encrypted, etc. However yesterday I had a look at my balance and was completely shocked to see that all my XRP had been sent to some xrp-address on the 8th of August (in two transactions). I was on holidays between the 29th of July and 10th of August, so my computer was offline during that time. All my XRPs are gone now (except the minimum of 20). I'm a newbie but I think I did everything to secure my wallet. So I really cannot understand how somebody could get access to my wallet and make those unauthorized transactions...really a litte bit devastated and unsure now about what to do in the future to avoid this... Is there anybody, who might have had a smiliar problem or who can share somw hinte/tips on what could have happened? I would really appreciate it! Because honestly.. I don't really have a clue.. It somehow feels like somebody just robbed my house.. Thank you very much for your help! Regards Rafa
Ctrl-Z posted a topic in Technical DiscussionIf my computer is backed up, would it also back up my wallet, or would it be unable to backup the keys?
