  1. I sent a small test amount of XRP from my Coinbase account to a Bithomp paper wallet using an XRP tag I made up. When trying to receive it back from the paper wallet into Coinbase, it looks like it only offers the Coinbase wallet address and their XRP tag. How do I receive XRP back into my Coinbase wallet? And, do I need to use the same XRP tag that I see there? I'm looking for a clear explanation before I move larger amounts to a paper wallet. I want to be sure I can get it back! Thank you.
  2. Dear Fellow Ripplers and Crypto Experts, Can someone please help me by providing DETAILED step-by-step advice on the following?: 1.) What is the SAFEST way to transfer XRP from a Paper Wallet (Cold Storage) to Ledger Nano S WITHOUT EXPOSING my private key/s on the internet? This is my goal. 2.) Am I able to transfer XRP directly from the paper wallet (cold storage) to the Ledger Nano S OR will I be required to transfer the XRP to an intermediary desktop wallet first (such as RIPPEX or TOAST) and then transfer XRP from the intermediary wallet (such as RIPPEX or TOAST) to Ledger Nano S? FYI: I am not interested in using a hosted wallet such as Gatehub. 3.) Assuming that I need to transfer to an intermediary desktop wallet first (such as Rippex or Toast), is there a way to accomplish this WITHOUT EXPOSING my private key/s on the internet? If so, how? 4.) When transferring XRP from a paper wallet to a desktop wallet (such as Rippex or Toast), will my original paper wallet keys (public and private) stay the same or will the desktop wallet provide new keys? Also, when transferring XRP from a desktop wallet (such as Rippex or Toast) to the Ledger Nano S, will my keys (public and private) change again or will they remain the same? I searched online and the tutorials but could not find exactly what I'm looking for. Your assistance will be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance for your help.

  4. Part of the new Community Beginners Guide series. Other guides in this series: Beginners Guide: Intro. Quick overview of the series and purpose of the guides Beginners Guide: XRP First Steps Simple first steps to acquiring XRP including 1) opening a wallet, 2) wallet funding/ buying XRP, and 3) sending the first XRP. Beginners Guide: Desktop Wallet Step by step instructions in downloading and installing XRP CHAT WALLET, the creation and activation of new wallet and the first few steps to becoming a ripple user. Disclaimer: This post is goes over what a wallet is, what the common different types of wallets are and their differences, and how wallets can be used at a basic level. It doesn't discuss Ripple-specific details of wallets, like re-keying an account. Also, it doesn't explain explicitly how to make a wallet. See other community guides for that information. Difficulty level: LOW One thing that many people who are new to Ripple, or cryptocurrency in general, do not understand is what a wallet actually is. I think this is one of the places that cryptos need to up their game in order to continue to gain adoption because the way things are named in cryptocurrency can easily create confusion about what is actually happening. First you need to undertand what a wallet is not. A wallet is not like a physical wallet. There is not a file that contains a copy of all of your coins. A wallet it not like a bank vault. There's not server or hard drive that has your wallet stored on it as a folder with coins inside it like a bank vault. So, what is a wallet? A good real-world analogy is that a "wallet" in cryptocurrency is analogous to your seal or stamp plus your name. Think of cryptocurrencies like a community ledger board where no history is ever erased and anyone can come up to the board and tell everyone else that they have transferred some number of coins to someone else on the board. They way they do this it using their seal of authenticity. Everyone else can verify that that person is the one who wrote the message on the community ledger because their seal is on the message. And they know who the money came from and where it went to based on the name of the person sending and receiving it. If you wanted to know how much any person held then you would go through the entire ledger since the beginning of history and count up how much they have received and how much they have sent. This is how a wallet works in cryptocurrency. Except, in cryptocurrency, your seal (actually, the device you use to imprint your seal) is replaced by your "private" or "secret" key. It's like a seal in real life. If you lose exclusive access to the use of your seal, anyone who comes into possession of it can send a message in your name without others being able to know. In cryptocurrency, this means that anyone who has your private key can make a transaction using your coins without anyone else being able to know it's not you. So, with this information, let's get a bit more technical. A "wallet" is literally just a secret key, which is just a number. It is displayed in a format that uses letters and numbers instead of just the numerals we normally use, because if it didn't then it would be very long to display. This is like your seal in our earlier analogy. From the secret key, you can derive the public address mathematically. The public address is like your name in the earlier analogy. It is also just a number, same as the secret key. This public address is where you or other people will send coins so that they go in your "wallet" (more accurately, so that others know your public address should now own them). However, from the public address, you cannot easily figure out the secret key (technically you could, but the amount of computational time it would take is astronomical, like, at the current power and using current algorithms, more than the time that the universe has existed until now). You can think of this like how on a seal you generally have an easily recognizable symbol or word that links the symbol to a person. However, even if you know that symbol and have seen the seal, it is not easy to duplicate the device used to create the seal, which is your secret key. Of course, in cryptocurrency, this is much more secure than a seal in real life because it's much harder to actually go backwards from a public address to a secret key than it is to duplicate a seal. So, if you know a secret key then you can do whatever you want with the funds that are sent to the public address that is linked to that secret key. Why is this? Well, when you make a transaction, what you are doing at a very basic level is making a message that says "I am the owner of <your public address>. I am giving <number of xrp> to <address you're sending to>." Then, you use your private (secret) key to "digitally sign" the message. This is like applying your seal in the earlier analogy. Since your public address and secret key are linked, signing the message allows other people to verify that the person who has the private key linked to the address that the funds are coming from is really the one who made that message. The next time a new block is added to the blockchain, your message is looked at by the network, and if it determines that the signature is correct and that you have enough funds to make the transaction, your message will be added to the block and then added to the blockchain. From that point onwards, anyone who wants to can go and see/verify that the owner of that public address sent those coins to the other public address, and so that is how a wallet "holds value." There's not actually a piece of hard drive space or something that stores a unique "coin" file under your address, there is only the record of a number of coins being transferred from one account to the next in a trusted manner. In order to actually use the secret key (wallet) to interact with the network, you use a piece of wallet software, not to be confused with the wallet itself. This wallet software (among other things) automatically performs this "digital signing" operation. This is not the same thing as a wallet. Wallet software does not actually store any value. It only allows you to use the value stored in the actual wallet (the secret key) and do things with it on the ripple network. You can import any valid secret key into any valid piece of wallet software and use it to make transactions from that wallet. Now, you may have heard of something called a "paper wallet" or "cold wallet" or "hot wallet". What are these? A paper wallet originally meant literally a wallet that you print onto a piece of paper. Since a wallet is just a secret key, the most basic form of a paper wallet is literally writing down by hand your secret key on a piece of paper. Now, to make things easier on the user, most paper wallets will include the secret key, the public address, and a QR code matching each. The QR code is just another way to encode or display the number that is easy for a computer to interpret if you take a picture of it. Paper wallets are one type of "cold wallet," a cold wallet being any secret key that has never touched (been stored on) a computer that was connected to the internet at the time it was stored on that computer. A "hot wallet" is a wallet whose secret key has been stored on a computer that was connected to the internet. If you make a "cold" paper wallet, as long as you don't lose the paper wallet, don't physically show anyone else the private key, and don't type it into an internet-connected computer, you'll be the only one with access to it. As soon as you type it into an internet-connected computer, that wallet is now "hot" and has, theoretically, a chance to be stolen if your computer or any other piece of the path it travels is infected with some kind of malware. With this knowledge, the best practice is to have a "hot wallet" for XRP that you think you might want to spend in the short term, some small amount. Then you make a cold paper wallet and store any significant amount of XRP you buy in it. When you decide you want to sell it or use it months or years down the line, you enter the private key from the paper wallet or another way of storing it into any piece of ripple wallet software on a computer and internet connection you trust and send all the ripple to wherever you want it to go. Since this wallet is now "hot," you would ideally then make a new paper wallet and send any ripple you want to keep storing in it. Alternatively to entering the secret key into an internet connected computer and making the wallet hot, you can use what are called "offline transactions" to keep the wallet cold and still send ripple from it, which I could explain in more detail if you'd like. Now, there are some other alternatives to paper wallets for cold wallet options. I would argue that a superior option to a paper wallet is a deterministic wallet that uses a good passphrase. A deterministic wallet basically means that you make a passphrase that you remember (or write down and store somewhere safe, much like a paper wallet) which can then be used to derive a single secret key and from that secret key a public address linked to it. Every time you enter the same passphrase into the piece of software you used, it will give you the same secret key and public address. Therefore, you don't have to store the private key anywhere since you will always have access to it as long as you know the password. The advantage of this is that you can make a very good but easy to remember password and use it to generate your wallet address and not actually have to store anything physical anywhere. A private key would be almost impossible for anyone to memorize reliably, but a good mnemonic password (described below) can offer superior security and is able to be easily memorized. To then use (spend) the funds in your wallet at some later date, you would go back to the same tool you used to generate the wallet, input your passphrase, and it would give you the same secret key which you could then use exactly like a paper wallet secret key by entering it into some wallet software and either making it hot or using offline transactions. If you use a good deterministic wallet generator and a good password, this is one of the most secure options available. Alternatively, if you use a bad password, you could be royally screwed. If you want to go the paper wallet route, you'd be using this tool: https://github.com/ihomp/ripply-paper-wallet If you want to go the deterministic route, you'd be using this tool: https://termhn.github.io/ripplewarpwallet
  5. Has anyone ever used https://github.com/jatchili/minimalist-ripple-client ? I'd like to transfer my XRP to a paper wallet and forget about it. Can someone confirm anything missing in these steps? Download the code (from the link above) Disconnect from the Internet Generate an address and private key and print out. Delete any files and clear browser cache Transfer XRP to wallet address (this part is terrifying to be honest) Thoughts? I'm running OSX latest.

  9. hi all; i was wondering what paper wallets do you use (for those who use them). which ones are reliable - I just dont want my newbiesm to get me in trouble with a scam or phishing sites etc. I have read the tutorials and saw some options but I am not sure if they are still valid as their repositories are not active at all. thanks for the help./
  10. Hey everyone, I sorta already posted this on /r/ripple but they didn't seem very interested. Maybe you guys are. If not, carry on ! I've been lurking this and /r/ripple since mid may and got into ripple at about .14! At that point I told my brother and girlfriend about Ripple and how I believe that they may be on to something! Now my brother also wanted to invest in Ripple but isn't very tech-savvy, so he couldn't really figure out how to buy them. I would've gladly helped him but I didn't fully understand it at the time myself and he is currently residing in another country with different rules and payment methods.. I also got a little paranoid after reading lots of people getting hacked and losing all of their investments (be it Ripple, Bitcoin or ETH). So I started reading about paper wallets and found a paper wallet for Ripple. It did the job of generating a public key and secret key with QR codes but it seemed a little .. bland to just print that out. So I looked further and stomped into bitcoinpaperwallet.com. The creator has a pretty awesome and neat design for paper wallets but unfortunately, no support for XRP. So I downloaded the template and started making my own paper wallet design using the trifold design template. I coded a simple HTML template, ripped some art from the official ripple site, hacked together some javascript and voila! A Ripple paper wallet generator! Generator: https://droopram.github.io/RipplePaperWallet/ (I strongly advise you to download directly from source and not use the online version!) Source: https://github.com/droopram/RipplePaperWallet TL;DR: I made a tri-fold paper wallet for Ripple so I can gift it to my loved ones. I used simple masking tape for the private key part for now, I'm still waiting on my fancy hologram stickers to arrive. I also laminated the paper for extra strength. PS: The back says bitcoin on the photo, but I already fixed this typo :).
  11. Hi I'm very green at crypto I have heard of bankcoin and stored value where the value is not volatile stable have you heard of bankcoin
  12. Ive done some searching, but havent really been able to get a crystal clear answer, hoping one of the more experienced people can help. Just so you know, I already have a Gatehub account with XRP in it, I'm verified and so on, thats all good to go, my questions, as the title states, are about paper wallets / cold storage. 1. Once i choose a paper wallet (liking ripplepaperwallet), i understand the safety protocols to create a new wallet and address etc, so to be clear, I simply now send the XRP to that address, and thats it? 2. Assuming that is in fact all there is to it creating the paper wallet, and i then send XRP to it, where is the XRP? I get that this paper wallet sort of becomes like a bearer bond, but is it sort of "removed" from the blockchain with a digital bookmarker that says "X amount of XRP exists, but its in cold storage somewhere"? I guess im curious about the backend of such a process. 3. To get the XRP back into the exchange, is it simply giving my account in the exchange the secret key, and it puts it back? Im sure this has been answered a bunch of times, but so many of the threads have gone off on tangents, and I hate wading through all of that, so a big thankyou in advance.
  13. Hello Guys, I want to make a cold wallet to save a part of my ripple coins. I found https://github.com/ripply-eu/ripply-paper-wallet is this wallet trustworthy? Thanks
  14. Hi team... I am following this guide to make my paper wallet .... The problem is... my printer is currently not working.... but I want to buy ripple this weekend... I want to do the following 1. save website on offline Macbook 2. generate Wallet keys 3. press print , but select option "save as PDF" and then use only the PDF for now... copy it on two or three USB sticks as backups... and never open the PDF on a macbook with internet access. and later I can print it a few times and destroy the PDF... Is it safe ?
  15. I foundet an GateHub account, created the main online wallet in this account, made some Euro deposit and bought XRPs for this. Now I dont want to leave XRPs on this GateHub online wallet for the next months or years. So I tried to store as an small test 100XRP in this cold paper wallet: http://ripplepaperwallet.com/ (someone use it?) and can find it with the Ripple Adress on „Ripple Charts Account Explorer“ ( https://charts.ripple.com/#/graph ) --great!! – but… …The question now before I store higer amounts: Where and how to use the secret Keys to send amounts back from stored Paper wallets to my GateHub wallet to withdraw? Is there any intern client on GateHub to do this or am I on totally wrong track? Thanks so much and sorry for my English (German spoken)
