  1. The following video basically shows the DAO hack contract which was written in Solidity being applied to both the Ethereum and the Cardano virtual machines, the latter being in testnet phase known as IELE. I'm not a coder - I just find this stuff interesting:
  2. https://cryptoslate.com/research-quantum-computers-can-decipher-private-keys-of-cryptocurrencies/ Sometimes I wonder about the timing of these articles - just when the market was showing significant recovery. ?
  3. Sometimes to see a larger picture, you need to take a step back and look at individual events in context. I do that in my newest blog, and the result is now sharpening into focus. Yes, I cover all the recent crypto news impacting XRP and Ripple as well, including the Canadian hacking case, voting progress for the new XRP symbol, and exciting news about banking adoption. Hope you enjoy the read: Please leave any feedback below. Please feel free to share my blog with a friend - or on any other platform or media - and thank you for doing so!

  6. Long story short, I lost 1 character in my private key. I have the remaining 28 characters. Im not sure which exact place is the lost character suppose to go so is there a program or script that could automate my guessing? if you guys have a script please help me and I could compensate with some ETH or XRP I just need a program the will: -guess a single character in my key in every possible placement in my private key so that I could transfer my XRP to my ledger thankyou
  7. https://www.rt.com/business/357735-swift-cyber-thefts-security/amp/?__twitter_impression=true It seems the biggest Ripple competitor is not doing well and will drive its customers towards other solutions and especially the Xcurrent users faster to Xrapid it seems. Thoughts?
  8. All Binance exchange trading was halted last night so that they could do maintenance on their servers. Around seventeen hours ago, Binance began system maintenance. They first noted on Twitter that “some users may experience a temporary decrease in exchange performance.” This was most likely because some people were starting to panic when their Binance exchange trading orders were slow getting fulfilled. An hour after that, another tweet went out that said they were extending the system upgrade down time. Another hour passed and then the Binance CEO tweeted out that there was a server issue on the replica database cluster which caused a data sync error. Crypto traders cringed. The tweet went on to say that no data was lost but that it would take hours to get everything synced up. Still no Binance exchange trading. Two hours later the CEO was back to say that it was going to take another 10 hours. This was an important update. It said that 30 minutes before Binance exchange trading would resume, everyone would have the opportunity to withdraw and orders they have made that weren’t fulfilled. CZ continued tweeting fairly regularly. The system update must have been a major issue that could not wait as there was little warning that Binance trading would be suspended. Then CZ tweeted that “We didn’t have a choice, other than trying to fix it as soon as possible for our users.” People were freaking out, including some of the Binance team according to CZ, “One of our team literally threw up after the calculation arrived at 10 hours.” That person and probably about ten thousand others. Seven hours ago, CZ noted that data sync was slowing down and there were a “few billion records to sync.” Two hours later, the Binance ZenDesk (support site) went down as well. That probably freaked a good deal of people out, even though Binance itself was live. That was when they said updates would be forthcoming every two hours. CZ shared an image that showed their DB Cluster did not do what it was supposed to do and that it was not a hack. Even mentioning that word would send people running for their roofs from which to jump off. Then the FUD started to fly. John McAfee, self proclaimed crypto visionary, tweeted an image that shows an alleged Binance message stating that one of the Binance exchange trading servers was attacked and compromised. Still, some outlets spread FUD in lieu of actual information. So, was Binance trading suspended because of a hack, or due to an error in some system maintenance? The debate rages on via Twitter. Others have posted obviously edited images and dubbed a celebrity deathmatch was on between Zhao Changpeng, CZ of Binance, and John McAfee, the guy with “zero cryptocontributions.” If anything, the Binance exchange trading halt has made for an entertaining day. The last tweet from Zhao was just under an hour ago as was one from Binance itself. That one states that they are on track for trading to recommence at 4 am UTC 2018/02/09. That is 11pm Eastern, 8pm Pacific time. They again reiterated that there will be a 30-minute window prior to the restart of trading in which users can cancel open orders. Binance and their CEO have done everything necessary to assure their users that things will get back to normal as soon as possible. At present those with Binance accounts can log in and see their accounts. All balances, at least on my account, are in order and where they should be. Clicking on the Trade button simply gives a pop up that says “no Trading Market.” The current system message at the top of the site links to the last Twitter message. If you have some time and need a laugh, read the comments on that post. They range from flabbergasted to righteous indignation to people simply cracking wise.

  9. Do you think you have a bad day today Tokyo-based cryptocurrency exchange Coincheck has confirmed that it has suffered what appears to be the biggest hack in the history of the technology. In a press conference at 23:30 JST (14:30 UST), the exchange’s president Wakata Koichi Yoshihiro and chief operating officer Yusuke Otsuka estimated its loss at 58 billion yen (approx. $533 million). According to Bloomberg, which attended the conference, 500 million NEM tokens were taken from Coincheck’s digital wallets. Tweets by Nikkei appeared to indicate that the precise amount stolen may not be fully known until further checks have been carried out into the intrusion. But though the exact dollar figure for the incident is hard to pin down (given the volatile nature of cryptocurrencies and the company’s lack of information), data suggests the figure is now at least over $400 million, factoring for a decline in the value of XEM, the NEM protocol’s token, following the incident. At press time, the price of XEM was $0.85, down from a high of $1.01 today, according to data from Coinmarketcap. Notably, the dollar amount stolen from Coincheck is likely greater than the amount stolen from Mt. Gox in 2014 (pegged at $340 million), though the impact on the cryptocurrency market will be much smaller given the immense increases in market capitalization since. Rumors had been circulating about the theft since early this morning when Coincheck abruptly froze most of its services. The firm announced on its website around 13:00 JST (04:00 UTC) that it had restricted deposits, trading and withdrawal of XEM, the token running on the NEM blockchain. A wider suspension on withdrawals of all cryptocurrencies as well as Japanese yen was announced around 30 minutes later. In the following hour, trading of all cryptocurrencies was also restricted, except bitcoin. According to the latest update, other deposit methods including credit cards have also been stopped. Coincheck is looking into compensating its customers, its executives also announced. It was also revealed that Coincheck was not registered with Japan’s Financial Services Agency, but now plans to do so. Coincheck’s president said he “deeply regretted” the issue.
  10. Guys, I see multiple people talking about a Cryptopia Hack in multiple telegram groups. Is this really the case? Anyone affected by it?
  11. Hello All. I`m in need of some help and hope you have some answers. On the 10th of Jan 18 I made a XRP withdraw and send it. The receiver got nothing so far (also binance account). I wrote a ticket to binance and later to the ripple support. Binance says it can´t help and ripple did not answer yet. So i did further research into it. Here is what I found: The transaction has the following Txid: 52EC63A88F88D60FF999D4BAF847BEAD5CE7D11ED7206E1095BFD0443D11B3CD The receiving address is: rEb8TK3gBgk5auZkwc6sHnwrGVJH8DuaLh If you put this address into here: https://bithomp.com/explorer/ you will see that the address has many transaction every hour per day and has a huge amount of XRP in it, definitely not the receiver who is in close contact with me (I`m 100% sure). This address was shown from binance as the receiver was getting (for the first time ever) a deposit address for her XRP in her binance account. I did a comparision with a transaction I did in mid december to my ledger and in this case i got only one transaction in Bithomp and everything looks fine there. The address was presented by binance when the receiver was making a request for a deposit address, could this a hack or something else. If anyone here has an idea or a direction where I could look or ask further I would be very glad and thankful. Have the best day of your life!

  13. I'm in the process of moving my XRP to cold storage, but want to check the security of my currency. I got to thinking about one method of trying to hack XRP that is probably impossible, but I'd like some confirmation on it. 1. I'm wondering how many possible XRP addresses there are? 2. What would it take to set up a program to cycle through all the addresses and run a balance check on each one? 3. Then when you've found a number of addresses with nice balances, couldn't you then run a program to brute force hack the secret key? 4. In cold storage are there any extra layers of security you can add through the RippleAPI beyond the secret key? I'm guessing it's nigh on impossible to hack an address/ addresses this way, but I'd be curious to know the maths behind it or how difficult it would be. Cheers for any help. Trippy
  14. Hello! I registered an account with wallet.gatehub.net on November 2, 2016, with copies of documents for verification. Made a migration of purse ripple.com (on the purse it was about 35000 XRP) and, from November 2, 2016 to November 22, 2016. Tried to make several XRP exchange transactions for the US dollar. Exchange, apparently did not happen (most likely, there was a glitch, or something else). But XRP from the balance disappeared. Technical support, at that time, could not say anything intelligible to me. I enclose last year's hashes and screenshots. I still can not see neither XRP nor $$. If the transactions were canceled, then I ask you to restore the balance in XRP on your wallet. Out of 35,000 XRP, only 3,784.99 XRP remained on the wallet. Where did XRP go? I ask you to help understand, check all transactions from November 2, 2016 to November 22, 2016, and return the funds, because On my purse XRP did not return, and the declared exchange for USD also did not happen. At the moment, the exchange operations are conducted well (in contrast to the period from November 2, 2016 to November 22, 2016, when the money was gone from the wallet). Also, found that I deleted 2 any wallet (probably removed). Maybe they are there? Is it possible to get them back?
  15. So after a while I have wanted to create a new cold wallet (like in the clip above). But now I can't seem to find one on Ripple.com?

    The Ultimate Unhackable Server

    I've never worked with servers, but one can't help to have noticed that there seems to be an endless variety of ways to hack them. With the growth of crypto-currencies, it seems like the current generation of server operating systems/applications is woefully outdated. Why is this? Is a new generation of architecture needed to provide the security that is required? Does anyone know if this is something that is being worked on, or are our so-called guardians of the internet and operating systems developers going to keep adding more plugs, band-aids, pieces of tape, and rubber bands to what already exists?
  17. After another very good week for every Ripple, the crypto community had also an interesting Friday. We mourn DAO/ETH holders’ losses, hopefully personal finances will heal soon. I am trying to find out what’s in it for Ripple. Here are a few lines, please feel free to add your thoughts. Not easy outcome for Ethereum The damage is done and there is no way to bail out everyone. There are people who found their DAO investment down at 50% (unrealized), ETH holders at about 30% down, people who sold on exchanges with similar losses (already realized), those who were hard on margin are probably at zero, finished. When Ethereum try to prefer one group of investors, the other one is not happy and will be questioning the legitimacy of the decisions. And besides of money, there is a whole bunch of questions about how solid is the sole concept of the Ethereum network. Will they be forking after every hack? And what if there is more than just one dApp running on the network? Precedents have serious consequences. Rushing to market, focus on PR and publicity is not good approach. New crypto celebrities spending most of their time on meetups and conferences, posting tweets on how they feel every 15 minutes, simply cannot focus enough on what’s their main job – and it’s developing, coding, debugging, testing, simulating, over and over again. Splitting his time 50:50 between publicity and coding inevitably results in poor quality of code. More realistic, humbler approach is what is winning both in outer, real life as well as in software development and crypto. You may trick media and people to believe your promises about creating a whole new crypto-world where everyone has his bright future, when the moment of truth arrives and your code is just so-so, or weak, you are done. It’s not bitcoin in its experimental phases in 2011-12. Today it’s 2016 and many thousands people heavily invested in. Not the time for experiments and not time for promises. If you like experiments, then better close yourself in a lab and trade roulette tokens, not real people’s money. Crypto will continue to march While the situation might be looking quite desperate today, the crypto will continue to march further. We know about bitcoin’s 1MB block limit, energy consumption and relative inefficiency, slow confirmation processing and that it renders itself not very practical for everyday life. But we also know how it’s a very good alternative to traditional instruments as storage of value, it’s true digital asset, Millennials’ gold. Bitcoin seems unstoppable and most likely will continue its rise further and this will continue to push financial industry to innovate (after some 30-40 years of sweet sleepy times). ETH is effectively out of the fintech business. Can you imagine anyone from banking business introducing Ethereum to money business? Because I don’t. Nobody will take them seriously for the next couple of years, more probably never ever again. R3CEV, Hyperledger, Blythe Masters, IBM, SWIFT? You may forget about it. They are not going to risk their reputation by introducing Ethereum to the world of finance. This period is over. Period. We may not feel very comfortable after Black Friday events, but there is an opportunity out there. The crypto world is not going to decease; it is waiting for high-quality innovations. Fortunately, there are technologies available today that deliver better. Ripple is taking a harder path that already seems to be a much better choice. Golden Ripple.
  18. hi guys. just wondering about security issues i have felt and thought to ask if anybody else realized that.... when you close the screen with ripple account without logging out and reopen the rippletrade.com you will be logged in so its not like banking website type security that if you X the screen you will have to put the password in which can be very risky in some scenario so just wanted to warn the community second problem i faced was, i had multiple screens opened and logged into with ripple in the same account and logged myself out in one and closed it (x) refreshed the other one i was still logged in so i believe ripple might need to up the security as its still not bank grade security. I am only worried because I am invested in XRP heavily and keeping my hopes high on it.....
