gtyj Posted January 2, 2018 Share Posted January 2, 2018 I created a public key (wallet address) and a private key (secret key) in a raspberry pi that has never been connected to the internet using the source code from well-know cold wallet address https://ihomp.github.io/ripply-paper-wallet/coldwallet-SHA1-cdfbe3260927b6073180a1099f02ef99ce0495e8.html. I wanted to make sure I knew that the secret generated by the wallet corresponded to its public key generated without burning 20 XRP and without exposing my secret to an exchange. So after reading around I found a post from "I_Hustle_Hard" in the below link (page 4 of thread) where he essentially says go to your gatehub account and try the import wallet screen, if you enter the right secret the submit button will be enabled, enter the wrong secret (even a character off) and it will not So I did and it worked as the poster described. So far so good. I then moved to another test, I generated 3 separate test wallets, each with their own public key (wallet address) and private key (secret key) and then tried to import a mismatched pair (for example public address of wallet 1 with secret of wallet 2 or 3) to my surprise gatehub allows me to import the wallet even though the pair is not a match. Has someone tested this before and can explain why I am able to import a wallet to gatehub using a mismatched pair? I wanted to get some feedback from someone in the community that might know why this happened and the thread I originally replied to received only one response (thanks Xilobyte).
