GateHub connect gateways tutorial

Recommended Posts

So I've finally found some time to have a serious go at learning to use this stupid gatehub wallet.

I want to add gateways and am very carefully following the detailed tutorial.

1. Go to Home page  [check]

2. Click Connect Gateway [here's where I get stuck]

Is there any obvious reason why I wouldn't be seeing a Connect Gateway button on my home page?

There is a tutorial section on Gatehub.
About trust lines:

Go to Wallets (balance tab)

2 Select a Ripple Wallet

3 Click Advanced located in lower right corner

4 Click Set trust

5 Enter gateway’s Public Address (Ripple Address) and Select Currency.

6 Double check and click Submit

But take care, you can add but you CANNOT DELETE a trustline from within the @gatehub wallet !

Did Morty's above question get answered?

Right now, any time I want to spend BTC, I have to withdraw to my Bitstamp BTC / RIpple wallet, and withdraw from there. It is a difficult multi-step process, and confusing considering I have withdraw from my "Gatehub" Bitstamp BTC wallet to my "Bitstamp" Bitstamp BTC wallet. Am I missing something? Can I add my Bitstamp wallet directly and send BTC from Gatehub?

I do not believe that Gatehub is using the Bitcoin bridge, so no, you can't spend btc directly from your Gatehub wallet.

Remember that Gatehub is both a gateway AND ripple wallet AND hosted wallet provider. The confusion springs in how these services overlap.

Gatehub issues several IOUs such as USD, EUR and REP. They plan to issue more directly or on behalf of others in the near future.

As a gateway Gatehub can offer boarding and exit ramps to ripple but only for their own issued IOUs.

As a hosted wallet provider (known as Gatehub wallet) Gatehub allows you to hold these issued IOUs off the ripple network- a private network.

As a ripple wallet you can transfer these IOUs over the ripple network and interact with other issued values, including those not issued by Gatehub. As ripple wallet is asset agnostic it can hold any issued asset as long as there exists a trust line between wallet and issuer.

This can cause confusion but makes sense with Gatehub's multifactorial plans.

Since Bitstamp is the issuer only Bitstamp can redeem it's IOU. Gatehub just allows you to trade and hold that IOU via a ripple wallet.

This is exactly the problem GateHub is trying to solve. Being able to send/receive funds issued by multiple gateways to/from multiple networks using one simple interface.

Bitstamp is technically not a gateway on GateHub platform so we are limited as to what we can do with their IOU's. While you can freely trade them using our Wallet on ripple network you will not be able to directly redeem and send them to bitcoin address without sending Bitstamp BTC IOU's to Bitstamp first.

That said, we already have an ethereum gateway (called GateHub Fifth) where you can do just that (send ETH directly from your ripple wallet to ethereum address) and we plan to add BTC support soon!

You can probably see where this is going. The more gateways we have on our platform, the more useful our Wallet (and RCL) becomes.

@Mercury couldn't have said it better myself!

In reality all of this is just the beginning... Once we are done and our wallets (and gateways) are ILP enabled everything will be much easier for the end users and developers alike.

Hi, @tulo where do I find- "gateway’s Public Address (Ripple Address)"

and I cant transfer any thing- "watch only wallet", nor trade= "invalid secret".

I am horribly stuck in this wallet. Trying all possible ways to move funds.

Thanks

Gateways public address are on their websites or you can check here: https://charts.ripple.com/#/value

You can't transfer or send anything because it is a "watch only wallet". It means you put only the ripple address and not the secret. Insert the correct secret to be able to use that account.

How do I send Ripple from my Gatehub wallet to my Bitstamp ripple adrres whiteout converting it to euro, dollar or bitcoins?

In bitstamp open your account and go to deposit. Then select XRP. They'll give you a ripple address (starting with r) and a tag (a number). From Gatehub do a send using as recipient that address (gatehub should directly ask for the tag number to add).
