FreeRipple.com - Giving away Free 1 XRP Absolutely Free


 Share

Recommended Posts

I just came across this site, currently seems to be "Under Construction" but they do tell you that you can submit your email address + your XRP Wallet and they will send you 1 XRP.

So I submitted those details a few hours ago and indeed got 1 XRP, absolutely free, didn't have to do anything to get it. I've just received an email from them so I checked my Ripple wallet. It's there! :pardon:

Whilst 1 XRP is not a large amount - getting it absolutely free and without any effort is definitely worth it.

Here is the website address:

http://www.freeripple.com

Enjoy it while it lasts and please report if you also got your free 1 XRP! :Laie_16:

They aren't giving away free xrp, they are buying your personal information, specifically your email address and your ripple address for about 30 cents. What will they do with your information? Will they sell it to an advertiser? Will they try to use it to gain access to your account? I don't know, but 30 cents is not a lot to buy that information. I would urge caution to anyone thinking of participating.

Seeing as you need 20xrp to open a wallet, the XRP giveaway seems to be a phishing scam. If they just wanted to give XRP away, there would be no reason to ask for your email.

Seriously, I would ignore this. Anyone wanting XRP, just buy some. 1 xrp is worth ~.30. If they have the internet, email, XRP wallet, etc...I can't see them NOT having an extra 30 cents to buy 1 xrp. 

 

Just ignore it, folks.

30 cents to get an email which they can use to search through leaked databases and gain access and steal all xrp. well, that's worth the risk :')

maybe someone can create a bot, use temporary emails / catch all email domain, and donate to all ripple addresses in the ledger :D

What if you enter a secondary email address you don't use or something like that? And by giving away your XRP Wallet you can risk it being hacked - are you guys sure of that? I felt pretty safe because I see guys on Youtube giving out their Ripple wallet address for "donations" so I'm not sure what's wrong with that? :blink:

even then there is a little chance some people accidently copy the secret key instead of the address, which can be logged immediately and get all xrp stolen

Okay, but I'm asking if you are responsible enough to submit your wallet address - and that's the only thing you submit along with some yopmail email or whatever - is there any risk involved in such case?

Yes, like what i say above; some people may accidently copy the secret for example. If 1 out of 10.000 do that that might be enough.
Of course there is a chance they are legit in whatever way but I'm not going add risk for only 1 xrp.

If you really only give your ripple address, are sure the website isn't infected with malware, hide your ip, use a temporary email, then yes, I assume you have 1 xrp for free.

IF YOU WANT TO RISK THEY STEAL YOUR EMAIL, YOUR SECRET KEY, YOUR IP, INFECT YOU WITH MALWARE, TARGET YOU WITH SOCIAL ENGINERING ATTACKS ETC, IF YOU LIKE THESE RISKS; JOIN THE GIVEAWAY

The website says "Your email address will not be shared with anyone else" and considering the fact you can use emails like Yopmail or other one-way-email providers that pose no risk to your information whatsoever - then what's the risk involved?

I honestly think they want to get popularity, this seems to be a new site that wants to become more popular. I have just quickly scanned the site after you guys worried me for a second, there is no risk shown in my Kaspersky software, it say it's 100% safe to use.

So I don't think these guys want to hack into our wallets. I don't think that's the purpose of that site.

Honestly in my opinion you guys are a little bit overreacting - not saying you don't need to be careful to submit your private key (!!!) - this should never be done anywhere! But submitting a temporary email like Yopmail or any other secondary email you have (or even your own primary one) + a wallet address seems to be fine for the giveaway, I don't see the need to scream out loud it's a hacking site.

Anyway just had good intentions of sharing this with people, I know nothing in life is free on the one hand but sometimes new sites want to attract people genuinely - so whoever reads this - do what you feel like, I will bookmark the site to watch if it changes in a few month time, whether for good or bad.

Also - will try tomorrow to ask for another 1 XRP using a different wallet and email and would keep you posted.

Even if I thought that there was zero chance the creators of the website could use the information I provided to harm me in any way, which I don't, I wouldn't sell my peace of mind for 30 cents, on the chance that someone on the internet has thought of something I haven't. So no matter what the cost benefit analysis doesn't work for me. Everyone else is free to make up their own mind.

I think the email is to notify you once this was sent, and again if you're concerned about using your own email just use Yopmail or many other similar providers - here's another one:

https://temp-mail.org/

And I think the members here have already agreed that submitting your XRP address (NOT your private key by all means!!) - is safe to be done.

Fair enough.

Look, I use FreeBitco.in as well, and they pay me interest rate of 4% on my deposit with them - do I keep there a large amount? No ... but they have been solid for years now and they are giving away free money as well.

I think it's a good thing more websites adopt to the need of having or earning or receiving free Crypto Currencies and I hope to see many more like these online. And unlike you I'm 100% feeling safe with this - and let any reader do whatever he/she likes with this information.
