Jatchili minimalist ripple client FAIL on Safari

Recommended Posts

Hi everybody! Just lost a bunch of XRP using the jatchili minimalist ripple client to generate my cold wallet. Per the linked post, it seems as though the issue is using the tool on Safari browser, which I was. The secret key I was given doesn't belong to my cold wallet address (even though both showed on the client at the same time and I printed it) - I've confirmed this on multiple sites.

When I first set up the cold wallet, I did a test send to the address and it worked fine, I could validate that the XRP transferred and I didn't think I also should test my ability to send FROM the wallet, or test the key at all. That was my mistake. Only after I transferred the bulk of my XRP did I attempt a transfer any out. Then I realized that my key is useless and my wallet is without an owner.

Is there any chance of Ripple giving these funds back to me? I mean, this web client is recommended in a number of posts of the Ripple forum, and I'm not the only user to have these issues. Seems like they must know about the problem and a warning would have been nice.

Why? This software comes with its own license which basically says "NO WARRANTY":

Thanks for the replies y'all...never seeing that money again, I get it. @jatchili how about an update on your instructions page? Seriously, your solution is recommended 100000 times on all the ripple sites and as a new (dumb) user, it was an easy mistake to make in thinking that your solution worked for everybody across the board. Granted I didn't do my due diligence, but you can easily prevent this from happening to more users.

This is a new bug. Probably no one knew about it one month ago.

EDIT: people also lost coins on other blockchains (Ethereum) due to similar bugs.

jatchili-minimalist-client was developed 2 years ago, and there have been no updates since.  Jatchili is nowhere to be found.  This program is broken now, and if you rekey your account, your money will be gone forever probably.
