How to log in to old ripple.com account


Recommended Posts

I had an account on ripple.com while it was being developed, probably about 8 years ago, and was given some XRP by a staff member in their IRC channel.  I remember the name of the account i had and couple most likely guess the password I used, but there is no longer a place to log in on www.ripple.com.

 

Is there any way I can recover this account and get access to this XRP or is it lost at this point?

 

Thanks

Did you write down the secret key for the account, it's a long string of characters that starts with 's'. If you have that you'll be able to import your wallet into current wallet software like XUMM.

I'm almost 100% sure I did not write down any key for the account.  I have the hard drive from the computer I used to access it but the only thing I could imagine recovering from there is a saved username and/or password, not a key for the actual wallet.

Someone may be able to tell you where to get the software for the old RippleTrade wallet. I don't know if that could help.

This is a long shot, but maybe RL turned over all the old user accounts to some company, like GateHub perhaps ?

GH was my first exchange, and they gave me my own "ripple wallet" (their terminology for an XRPL account, pre-activated at no cost)

Then the secret key was acquirable from my GH account, but GH would facilitate trades and withdraws thru their interface, where I only needed my user/pass to access my GH account. 

You should prolly do some googling to trace down announcements about how RL handled the transition away from providing the old service.
