Just a thought. Maybe there is some activity and more information in the closed group (invite only) for the victims of the hack? We don’t need to know the details if this is the case (there might be some bilateral agreements in place which should stay private) but a confirmation of such activity would probably be enough to close down this thread.

there's no agreement, gatehub is quiet as a mouse. these guys can't even come out with an official statement. how the hack happened nobody knows.

No,  as much in the dark as everyone else. Not helped by Gatehub’s silence/lack of updates. Of concern is the now complete cessation of any communication via support or their social media pages (Twitter, Facebook etc).

Only XRPforensics team have been giving much appreciated help and  they are giving assistance to the investigating LEAs having tracked the funds since theft to cash out. They have been outstanding in their generosity of time and sharing of knowledge.

i think at this stage its a likely assumption that gatehub have gone bust , probably a good idea for everybody to get their funds off asap .

Best thought is that they are too busy preparing the release of a definitive report into the theft, not going to assume anything until then but the longer the silence goes on the greater the uncertainty.

I for one have obtained each and every zerp from Gatehub. Thankfully I transferred almost all to cold storage and haven't been a victim of this hack.

Having seen the way @gatehubhave tackled the situation in comparison to Bittrue by treating members here with complete disregard, I will take my remaining zerps off the exchange and never use this incompetent company again.

But it's also likely that they didn't actually lose any funds themselves, so they would probably not go bust unless they actually do refund people.

For other reasons though, it's still a good idea to get out, unfortunately.

They don't lose money directly, but they miss out on the ability to make money off those people. Essentially, every place has some sort of withdraw fee when moving money out. So, if you withdraw everything and move out, they're going to get one last bit of fees in, but going forward you aren't keeping them financed from future withdrawls. The same concept would apply if nobody used the service as they wouldn't have any income from people using the service, but they still have costs that are going to exist regardless.

loyal clients of GH are idiots.

If I ever get my fund back, I would definitely donate to the XRPforensics team.  They took the roles that GateHub should've in terms of communication, investigation, and speed.  They definitely add value to the space, and I think they will play a vital role the future if we were to move forward.  Thank you guys for using up your free time trying to retrieve our funds.  

Take note @gatehub 🐾

Same here I'd give out % of my funds back to the great work of XRPforensics.
