I feel for you but XRP is worth next to nothing so you aren't really missing out on anything.

Oh please just **** off. Just because you bought high doesn’t mean everybody was late to the party. Many people on this board lost millions of XRP bought at  below .006 USD because of Gatehub, so stop the inappropriate comments.

You should have invested in a Nano Ledger if you had millions of XRP rather than letting it sit on an exchange idiot.

Agreed

Has anyone received any information from Gatehub on the investigation, compensation or should we assume they are washing hands of this and moving on. Hayes Conner.com is starting a class action suit which tells me they must have a strong case. Is there anyone on this site using them to represent you?    ......and how can you initiate a class action if nothing (supposedly) is resolved?

I've been receiving phonecalls recently from people speaking broken english from Denmark, Holland, Belgium, Germany, probably a reroute from India or Africa to those countries. They try to sell me a trading course and get more personal information. Asking me if I am interested in trading etc and probably trying to scam me. I don't give any information, hangup and don't answer those calls anymore ofcourse.

I wonder if that could be part of the GH hack. Anyone else experiencing those calls? Possibly they bought my personal information somewhere on the dark web. In 2018 there also was a Litebit hack that could have spilled information like that.

Luckily I've got my investment buried away far from phones and computers and have my secret key tattooed on a very intimate place ;)

Any update from @gatehub ?

"Dear GateHub Customer,

Recently, our Security Team learned additional information in relation to the June incident affecting some of our customers that we emailed you about in July. As we continued to investigate, we found evidence that the following information on your account was accessed without authorization: unique account id, email, date of account creation, hashed password1, encrypted account key2 and encrypted recovery key3.

Any other information such as: encrypted XRP ledger wallets secret keys, phone number, address, nationality, citizenship, ID document(s), proof of residence document(s), date of birth, place of birth, or other information was NOT compromised.

1. Hashed passwords are passwords converted into unreadable strings of characters that are designed to be impossible to convert back.
2. Encrypted by symmetric encryption algorithm.
3. Encrypted by symmetric encryption algorithm"
