GuyGreg Posted September 12, 2017 Share Posted September 12, 2017 Hi, I followed the steps in the tutorial below to create a keypair with the "XRPChat Desktop Wallet". I have not deposited anything. I don't plan to need to transfer between cryptocurrency and fiat currency often, so was hoping to skip the step of opening an account like a bank where you have to send in a bunch of documentation. One more account I don't plan to use again, at least not for a long time. A guy I know has been using Bitcoin for years and has an account on Poloniex. He suggested if I wanted, I could Paypal him some dollars, and he'd move some of his Bitcoin on Poloniex to Ripple and send them to me. I just want to be sure that any kind of incoming deposit will work, without the account being "activated". I can just generate a new keypair with the "XRPChat Desktop Wallet, hand out the public address, and anyone anywhere can send me funds? How long should I expect to wait between when he initiates a send action on Poloniex and when the funds show up on my desktop? I am thinking it might be better to create an account on Poloniex (which I expect I will need, as BTC are still the most used for buying and selling goods online) and have it just be a transfer between Poloniex accounts. I don't know Poloniex either, can you do that (transfer funds directly between Poloniex accounts not held by the same person)? This would prevent a technical explanation if the funds don't show up (he can't as easily not send the money, and say "you must have done something wrong on your end.") Thanks for reading!
