Cold wallet - Linux machine
RecentChange posted a topic in Problem SolvingI have setup a cold wallet on an offline ubuntu machine. Its working well, but I am looking to fix the final part of the puzzle which is the QR Code. I would to install QR Code generating software but its seems most ubuntu software is installed via the software center. I have been trying to download the software on another computer but it seems like there's dependencies that need to be installed. I tried installing the dependencies but it seems never ending. I have tried to install qrencode and zint, but haven't succeeded any suggestions? other than connecting to the software center which defeats the purpose of the cold wallet.
LINUX for dummies
ObservantOne posted a topic in GroupsI hope I am not taking up too much of your time. I am looking to set up my Win7 pc to be Linux. I need to have the most security, and a decent GUI. I understand that the majority of what is to be done through Linux will be code based (like cmd.), but if there is a secure, easier to use feature, I am all ears. I am also up for learning how to use it. What do I need from my pc? Absolute control. I need security, and redundancy. I am looking to take my XRP offline, into a cold wallet so an exchange can't flub it up. How do I go about this!? Do I do clean install>AV install>update>set up Virtual Machine (on a USB to isolate my wallet)>Install AV>Update VM>Set up Wallet> Sync> Test send to wallet> Send when confirmed? I have two ledger nano s "wallets" though I have been told that the XRP isn't actually stored in the "wallet", but the Ledger is used to give permission when wishing to move to or from the "wallet". Too much misleading information out there! Anywho, thank you for your time!
The Ultimate Unhackable Server
Guest posted a topic in Off-TopicI'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?
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.
"...a number of prerequisites for blockchain to fulfill its potential in financial services – and beyond. Key among these is achieving a standard way of implementing the technology. A shared ledgering technology that can provide a consistent view across the broad business network needs a standard way of transferring ledger data. Organisations will participate in multiple ledgers – an FX network, a bond network, et cetera. Just as the internet and intranets share the same technology, so the blockchain proposition needs interoperability to function. In this context, the recently announced open ledger project being orchestrated by the Linux Foundation is critical. Under an open governance model, this project will develop an enterprise grade, open source distributed ledger framework" -- Banking On the BlockChain [Finextra Whitepaper]
Ripple excluded from first Hyperledger code merge?
cmbartley posted a topic in General Discussion"The open-source Hyperledger project was on the verge of unanimously voting to formally merge the codebases donated by... startups Blockstream and Digital Asset, as well as tech giant IBM." -- http://www.coindesk.com/hyperledger-on-the-verge-of-merging-blockchain-code-from-ibm-digital-asset/ [Note: Ripple not listed] But then there's this: https://bitcoinmagazine.com/articles/ibm-wants-to-evolve-the-internet-with-blockchain-technology-1459189322 "The Hyperledger Project is under the umbrella of the Linux Foundation, and seeks to incorporate findings by blockchain projects such as Blockstream, Ripple, Digital Asset Holdings" "Linux made clear it wanted to “disrupt the disruption,” in part with their findings, as well as the data gathered by projects such as Ripple, Ethereum and others exploring the blockchain." "Bitcoin, Ripple and Ethereum are “Iteration 1” of blockchain technology, the three time IBMer told his audience. Wolpert thinks blockchain technology will soon evolve to “Iteration 2.”" "This doesn’t mean blockchain 2.0 technologies such as Blockstream, Ethereum and Ripple are lost causes that must now completely retool. The Linux Foundation, in fact, works with Ethereum and Ripple employees. With its blockchain projects, IBM is not focused on moving a cryptocurrency."
