Xrper Posted May 1, 2017 Share Posted May 1, 2017 (edited) Hello, I am trying to find out how to create a cold wallet to store ripple. I would like to use the most official software available, which I understand is rippled. I read this post by David: On 08/02/2017 at 6:04 AM, JoelKatz said: You need to generate a secret and an account using some tool. You can do it with rippled, but others can probably tell you easier ways. Once you've done that, write down the secret on a piece of paper or store it on the drive. It will be a string of about 25 random-looking characters that starts with an "s". Then send the XRP to the account. Now I would like to follow the advice, specifically using the rippled tool (as I imagine this is the most trusted software). Can someone tell me : 1) How to install Rippled (on windows or linux). 2) The commands / script I need to issue to generate the secret key and the account. 3) If I have a cold wallet, and lose the secret key, my thinking is the funds are 100% lost, there's no way to recover the secret key, and you can't access the wallet without it, is that right? 4) How I would upload and withdraw funds onto this account. 5) if gatehub is trusted, and if I create a ripple account instead of a hosted account on there, if the account really is 100% mine, and gatehub have no access to the funds in there.
