Share your experiences with running rippled
mDuo13 posted a topic in Technical DiscussionRather than continue to derail TWarden's UNL security blanket thread, I decided it would be a good idea to share knowledge and collect information on people's experiences with running rippled. We can see what kinds of specs and settings people have had success or problems with, and go from there. I'll start with my own experience: I have a home desktop PC which I use for my daily computing needs. I built the computer in 2009 and have upgraded it slightly over the years. Since late January 2016, I've been running rippled as a validator more or less continuously. System specs: CPU: 2.66GHz Intel Core i7 "Bloomfield" CPU RAM: 16GB Corsair XMS3 (what can I say, it was a Black Friday sale!) Disks: System partition is on a 80GB Intel X-25M SSD. My rippled's database is on my 2x3TB 7200 RPM disks in software RAID1 using mdadm. I think they're Hitachi-branded? OS: Arch Linux x86_64 (latest Linux kernel, which I've updated a few times in the time I've been running the validator) Network: I'm wired to a cheapo 10/100MBit Netgear ethernet switch and use my house's residential broadband. Settings: I'm using the default settings from the rippled-example.cfg, except for adding my validation seed. The automatic online delete seems to work just fine. Maintenance: Basically, the only maintenance I do is to upgrade to a new version of rippled when one comes out. So far I haven't had any problems with disk space: rippled seems to purge old ledgers often enough to stay within a reasonable amount of disk usage. Usage patterns: I occasionally run RPC commands against rippled for testing / work purposes, but by and large the daemon is dedicated to validating. I do use the machine for my daily computing and I've noticed that the process tends to use up as much RAM as it can when my computer is idle, but it quickly yields it to other programs when I'm actively using the computer. There hasn't been any major adverse effect on my general computing performance. Meanwhile, my validation agreement percentage has been hovering around 98% with few exceptions during that time.
Hello XRPChat, Our development team is working on a wallet/e-commerce app and hardware combo and would love some healthy and of course critical feedback from you. The app we are developing will allow users to store the top 5 cryptocurrencies with XRP being our prime focus. It can accommodate more cryptocurrencies but for now we'll start with the top 5. One of the main features of the app will be to transfer stored cryptocurrencies (value) to and from all users using the app, an equivalent to PayPal and Venmo but without the hosted mediary in between as we are not, nor do we wish to be an exchange as anything can be hacked. We are coding the app to interface with existing payment portals such as Apple Pay and Google, and stand-alone as we believe cryptocurrencies are the future of transactions and envision using the app to make common daily transactions once cryptocurrencies (xrp) become wildly accepted everywhere. So far there hasn't been any mention of consumers using XRP to trade and purchase goods just as credit and debit cards are now widely used and excepted and are wondering if anyone has seen or heard of such a thing not just the usage between the banks. Or is it that XRP will only be used for cross-border payment transfers and not directly for daily consumer usage? Again any feedback is greatly appreciated. If there doesn't exist such a platform what would you, the consumers and end users like to see in such an app? What features would add value for you? As mentioned, in addition to the software app, we are designing a totally offline hardware wallet for users to store the bulk of their cryptocurrencies and are projecting its cost to be lower than the Nano Ledger S. A wallet that's never connected to the internet. Our thinking is that "when" cryptocurrencies (xrp) become the mainstream store and transfer of value. Storing them will also become vitally important and as such, there needs to be an easy and highly secure way to house them, one which is always offline. The device we are designing will work in conjunction with our aforementioned software counterpart to move cryptocurrencies back and forth between one another. Again we welcome any and all feedback as we greatly value your insights and opinions. With your help, our primary focus will be to deliver a quality product. Thank you. Tony C. CEO - Phoenix Sequence
Introduction and some questions.
moman posted a topic in New MembersHi everyone. I've spent several months looking at all the various before finally deciding to invest in Ripple. The team seem pro-active and I believe the system has a real chance of implementation by some major banks eventually. As a micro-controller programmer I was initially attracted to IOTA but found their emphasis was just on selling coins and I found no feedback or information regarding hardware developments (as proof of concept as its supposed to be for M2M) apart from 'they're developing an ASIC I think'. Firstly the use of the term 'asic' is not really applicable in this application from an electronic hardware point of view. It also takes millions of pounds and much time. If they were serious they could within a month or two use current technology microcontrollers or even arduino's, if they produced a C/C++ library to perform simple transactions, query the blockchain etc, yet I found nothing to suggest this was being followed. I would love to volunteer to write a Ripple C /C++ library myself but I already have TOO many projects on the go. Does such a thing exist as yet? **EDIT I should add my idea is an automatic fee processing device for motorway tolls etc. Ripples current low transaction fees and fast transaction time could steal some of IOTA's thunder.
Tradekraft posted a topic in Problem SolvingHey there, Can anyone tell me if when I withdraw my XRP from my exchange to my hardware wallet. Do I have to deposit them back on the same exchange, or is it possible to deposit them on another exchange? My concern being if something happens to the exchange itself. Thanks
Is there hardware that you can buy to store Ripple?
goripple posted a topic in MarketplaceI want to be on the safer side and mainly because I want to store XRP for long term, so does anyone know if there is a hardware like a USB stick that you can buy to safely store your XRP's?
Hardware Wallet Design Team
Guest posted a topic in Technical DiscussionI started this topic because I am tired of waiting for someone else to furnish a hardware wallet to the Ripple/XRP community. I'm a former product developer, with hardware and software experience. This project will need skill-sets in hardware development, micro-computer coding, internet coding, testing, and manufacturing. I feel that with the right group of people we can make a world class HW Wallet that will enhance the value of XRP (besides giving everyone a convenient and safe place to store their XRP). Beyond that, we can leverage the knowledge gained, with our experience, to go on to bigger and better things with Ripple. This project should be considered a commercial project, and sales profits of the wallet will be distributed to the team. In other words, this is a serious development project for experienced people, willing and able to put in the time and effort. If you are interested, please post here, talking about your skill set and how this could proceed.
