Title: Be Safe
Post by: Violin8 on October 02, 2018, 06:59:58 PM


The recent happenings of  hack are becoming rampant that exchanges are no longer safe. If the exchanges can get hacked this means you and me stand no chance at all so in view of this if you can do get cold wallet/ Web wallet to keep ur funds safe,  never leave ur long term bags on any exchange.

Do not visit random links and also stay away from airdrops requiring your private keys or Passphrase.

Do not store your private key or passphrase online.

It's called a private key or passphrase because only you should have it and not even the developers of the app has access to it and that is why if you lose your keys you have equally lost your walllet.

Stay positive and waiting for the bull run.
Stay safe everyone!

To be safe, you need special effort. Especially, we need to pay much attention to the computers we trade crypto money.

The most overlooked aspect of investing would be its security. It's easy for people to invest into something thinking that they can profit off of it while taking security for granted. In the case of bitcoins and cryptocurrencies, everybody is prone to hacks. Heck, not even exchanges with top-of-the-line security measures are safe from hacking escapades made by malicious people on the web. One good thing I learned on keeping a passphrase is to write it down on post it notes individually in their own respective orders. In that way, no one would bat an eye on what does these random words meant especially if you yourself know how to use them when the time comes. Also, never, ever save a copy of any of your passphrase in any of your machines, especially if they contain sensitive information pertaining to your data and your bank, exchanges etc. Some malicious applications can detect these and snoop all the data they want resulting into hacks.

And lastly, stay vigilant, trust no one especially your info and always keep backups in a separate offline machine.

Being safe through internet world doesn't seem so easy nowadays, you really need to pay much attention to the website your using checking every detailed spelling if correct or not, lot of phishing site perfectly copied every detail of the website we're using even the layout the text and whatsoever bit of information just for the sake of their hacking activity.

Well this should be basic for any crypto investor. Just expect anything that can be hacked will be hacked. That way you always have to prepare for the worse. Quite the hassle if you think about it but if we're talking about your money, then it's always better to be safe than sorry.

After the hacker stole $ 500 from me, I switched to Linux and did not install any programs. I access the browser through ledger. Thus, the hacker will not be able to access the funds, because the transaction must be confirmed only by simultaneously pressing two buttons on the device case.

I know a friend who stored his private key in a googe drive map. So it was online, and without a password you could view it on his pc. Keeping your private key safe is very important. Store it somewhere where it is protected by a password/2fa.

Could you be more details about what kind of hack happened recently ? I think if you store your coins in big exchanges, it will be secure because they hold many peoples coins, not just you. But the cold wallet is the best wallet for security indeed, because you are the only one who can use it to move your balance from that wallet.

The recent happenings of  hack are becoming rampant that exchanges are no longer safe.

But there are not many exchanges that were hacked, I say this because if we make an annual comparison of how many exchanges are stolen, we will see that the exchange number is few, now if we compare how many people are stolen funds in the exchange, we will see that the number of people is lots. This to say the following:

In the case of a hack, the exchange returns money, so at least the person knows that he will have his money

In case the exchange itself steals money, the person will never recover their money.

In short: worry that the exchange will not steal your money

waiting for the bull run.

everybody expects this

You contradict yourself by recommending a web wallet. With a web based wallet, you do store your private keys online and you are not the only one with access to your wallet.
I would only recommend using a hardware wallet, especially for users that are not technically adept.

Certain desktop wallets can also be kept relatively safe, but you need to have some technical knowledge on how to do that.
I'm sure that there are people with a very secure Armory setup for example, but a hardware wallet is definitely a lot easier to use.

I agree! People need to be educated in all aspects of cryptocurrency. Be vigilant always and keep secured all your funds in exchangers and in online wallets and better use hardware wallet than web wallets if your going to hodl for a long time. Withdraw all big funds in exchangers after trading because you won't know when hackers will attack.

Good tips, sadly though a lot of people will still fall for the trap from scammers not because they're everywhere but people are too gullible to trust others. And even we all gave them the warnings, they will insist because their decisions is already clouded.

Just like the phishing or how they protect their private keys. We already have a lot of tips everywhere in the forum, but you will still see threads pop up from time to time about hacks and lost keys.

Security is the biggest nightmare for every crypto bag holders, once your wallet is compromised by hackers they will not leave you any single dime. Thats why crypto investor should know how risky this environment is. As a security measure I always double check everything what I'm doing on the internet, I learn to become security conscious. Internet is never been a safe place since its existence.

As we all know, no computer is safe when they are put online, so, keeping sensitive materials or documents on system online could result to a great loose to that fellow. I usually keep my sensitive materials offline and keep non-sensitive ones online just to fool some group of individuals parading themselves as hackers. All my passphrase and keys to all my accounts are kept on my iron cabinet and they are safe.

I have also experiencing those kind of things like hackers attempting to log in with my wallet and other crypto related accounts which contains btc. Different IPs and countries are trying to hack my account thus appearing the infos from my email. I think i have clicked some phishing sites that is why they have my infos with them. But i already installed 2fa for more secured way of logging in.

Changing passwords always worked. Hackers are trying to find a way to get our btc. Let us be careful what we clicked for.

Sometimes I think for a moment, until when the hacker's account will take place and continue to steal. This is really worrying for all of us who have an online wallet. I thank you for giving advice and also still care about reminding about the dangers and risks on the internet, especially anticipating this.
Thank you very much.

Thank you so much for your advice. In fact, cold wallet is the way to at least be safe from getting hacked. If exchanges that earn so much profit and upgrade their security from time to time are not safe from hackers, then you must be careful not to fall victim.

But the cold wallet is the best wallet for security indeed, because you are the only one who can use it to move your balance from that wallet.

This is the most recent high profile one, so this is probably what he was referring to:

https://www.coindesk.com/crypto-exchange-zaif-hacked-in-60-million-6000-bitcoin-theft/

I think if you store your coins in big exchanges, it will be secure because they hold many peoples coins, not just you.

You couldn't be more wrong. They're all inherently unsafe. Big exchanges could even be more dangerous in some respects, because their users are more frequently targeted by phishing attacks, hackers have more incentive in cracking their security, etc. If you're safekeeping your coins, nowhere on the web is truly safe.


Title: Re: Be Safe
Post by: talkbitcoin on October 10, 2018, 09:04:12 AM
the problem is that you can not always avoid the risks at all times because not everyone is only buying and holding bitcoin in their cold storages. there is a lot of things that you do with that bitcoin. one of them is trading and when you trade you end up having some funds on exchanges which have the risk of being taken by the exchange when they turn into scam. but that is a risk that people accept when they use these services.

Keeping your wallet safe on the Internet is not easy, so many bad guys look at your wallet. However, what we can do is to be alert and watchful. Most of the stolen cases are due to the victim's fault.
When you lose money, it can not be recovered, so be careful.

I think this is more due to the bad habits of using your computer, not the blockchain is not safe. In my opinion, as long as you use it normally, the blockchain should be very safe. Usually, you The computer was hacked because you have browsed some unsafe websites and downloaded some unsafe plugins. If you use your computer normally, don't click on URLs that you are not familiar with or have not seen. Your computer will be safe.

Safety in everything we do is key.  Before investing at all we need to get security aspect figured out,  offline wallet would have been a safe means yet you still have to import your fund, with great invest comes high ends security measures like ledgers and the likes.

there is nothing new about exchange hacks. they have been happening from the day the exchanges started and most of them aren't even hacks. it is the exchange scamming you. and because of that the safety of exchanges has not changed.

this only concerns traders not everyone. and everyone is not a trader to be considered about this!
not to mention that you always keep your trading funds on exchanges, in other words funds that you want to have access to every day. and you already accepted this risk. otherwise you shouldn't be even trading!

I think to best way to safe yourself with this scammy things, you have to spread your risks. Open more than 1 wallet for bitcoin and for the altcoins. Use more than 1 exchange. If you get scam you wouldn't loose everything with this way. I have 3 BTC and more than 10 ETH wallet and i am working with again more than 10 exchanges. Spread it, don't get risks.

To keep safe of your token, we need to keep everything is needed. Like using exchange platform you need to activate 2FA for us not to be hack our account in the exchange. Then most of the exchange has KYC you/we must past it also if necessary, moreover, if you are using MEW always keep the private key on safest place which you are the only one knows about it also.

It is also very important to start with keeping your e-mailbox safe, as all of the hacking starts with e-mails. From having someone's e-mail it's more than halfway to get someones account on crypto exchanges hacked. Just an advice, use the 2fa verification, such as Google Authenticator or other apps to keep it safe and change the passwords from time to time, to make it even safer.

My way of security is that i dont keep all my coins in exchange i just keep that much coin which i trade and if anything happens nothing will effect me as every week i just take out my profit and only keep the initial trading coins in the exchange. I keep my wallets in offline computers which i use only for wallet access purpose. For daily working i use separate desktop so like this i am safe from getting my wallet hacked.

Ignoring the fact that it's an altcoin, how exactly would AML and KYC make your coins safe? Those procedures are in place to protect businesses that facilitate a lot of cash flow from liability in case illegal entities exploit them. They do nothing to protect the users themselves, much less from hackings.

It is this basic thing that all investors must be aware of, especially for beginners, because the security of your assets is a priority in cryptocurrency but based on my experience storing coins in Large exchanges is quite safe because they hold many coins of investors. So you don't have to worry if what you choose is a big exchange.

Thanks for an educational thread. I think most important thing is to keep your wallet keys safe and never post them anywhere.
That's correct, you don't have to post it and don't ever post it even in your emails.

Keep it offline and write it down on a piece of paper so no one can gain access to you but only you. Don't expose it that it is your private key. Do something creative by keeping it or jumbling with other words that a crypto folk won't understand that it is your private key.

Always keep your data and privacy secure, never joined some thing unknow because it become way how to know your data. Bookmark your website of crypto getting access and never use other computer because could steal your account.

If you want to be safe choose AML BitCoin. No one will steal your coins. This is the only coin compliant with AML and KYC.

Mostly of the icos now did the kyc as compliant of AML, so what the heck are you talking about? I'm sure that's a shitcoin.

If you guys still want to trade in DEx that obviously requires to import the private keys; create a new wallet then transfer your coins there then your new wallet can be now use in DEx. The hacking vulnerability of your main wallet will be lessen as you do this since you didn't import your private keys. For full protection, always use metamask.

Choose privacy first online. With VPN, TOR or whatever keep your anonymity online should have set a default in your everyday activity and so you can rest sure you're safe. With crypto world you cannot be safe anymore if you don't take care about the consequences while you typing or just click on the web because scammers and hacker or other bad guys are there to take control on yourself ( and your funds ). Choose Privacy first

The recent happenings of  hack are becoming rampant that exchanges are no longer safe. If the exchanges can get hacked this means you and me stand no chance at all so in view of this if you can do get cold wallet/ Web wallet to keep ur funds safe,  never leave ur long term bags on any exchange.

Do not visit random links and also stay away from airdrops requiring your private keys or Passphrase.

Do not store your private key or passphrase online.

It's called a private key or passphrase because only you should have it and not even the developers of the app has access to it and that is why if you lose your keys you have equally lost your walllet.

In this case, security needs to be given special attention and more. Do not underestimate storing password keys. That will harm your wallet. So this is a suggestion and also good advice to digest. Thank you for your time to convey this in this forum.

always be aware of every new market and low volume market. because in my opinion it's very vulnerable. store your crypto (especially bitcoin) on wallet hardware. it will be very safe. because you alone can access it. remove it when you want to sell it. and the most important thing is to store private keys in a safe place. because basically the security of bitcoin is on each person.

Maybe both.Since we are in a digital world,hackers also are already making some advancements just to continuosly and succesfully hacked other people's accounts.So we should be more careful in keeping our private keys safe that only our own selves knows it.

Thankyou for informing us. Well it was really true that everywhere was not safe. Still there are bad people who tend to do evil things like hacking. Hopefully it will stop and no one will be a victim of it. We must take care of our wallet because we are only the person who is responsible for it.

It's a good advise that everyone should consider. Exchanges are not really meant for long term storage of any crypto asset. Keeping any cryptocurrency in the exchange for a shorter period of time reduces the risk of falling victim to an exchange being hacked. Regarding hardware wallets, deciding to keep your crypto assets off the grid comes with a price (literally) because cold wallets does not come cheap as some might expect. And there's a lot of things you need to consider before buying one so you get the best of features that applies to your needs.

Staying safe in the crypto world solely depends on you. IF you choose to join any website offering giveaways or any form of bonuses, you expose yourself to be hacked and your coins will be stolen. There are a lot of fishing sites created just to hack into people's account to steal from them. Moreover, its not safe to keep your coin or tokens on any exchange platform. You expose yourself to all kinds of hacks. Hardware wallets are the best option to keep your coins in.

I agree with this. We are responsible for the account, and we never share anything about how many coins we have, how much the money we have to other people. We need to take care of our account to the safe place, and we need to secure the private keys by offline because it's risky if we are saving the private keys in the cloud. It is better to play safe than regret in the future.

Well phishing sites are everywhere and you can actually avoid that by not easily clicking sites that you saw thus sent to you.

If you want to keep your money safe and long-term, Ledger Nano S will be the right choice for you. Based on modern technologies and completely separate from the Internet to maximize the protection of your electronic assets against hackers, thieves, so even if you lose wallet Nanos, only you will know the PIN to unlock. And when thieves enter the wrong PIN three times, the device will automatically delete the data. You can completely restore data, electronic money with a new Nano S device with your security code when you set up the Ledger Nano S for the first time. You can rest assured that your money is safe.

Actually, keeping funds on a web-based wallet isn't that safe. A cold wallet should be reliable as it isn't connected to the Internet, so the hackers are unlikely to steal your assets. I like this feature at CEX. In addition to it, the company provides more security measures and collaborates with banks. It's okay to buy, for example, DASH for EUR (https://cex.io/dash-eur) and leave coins on the exchange, not worrying much about their safety.

you are right, now it is very difficult to trust someone or a link given by a fellow friend, sometimes we cannot know what is in their minds.

indeed it will be safer if the private key and matters relating to assets are important, we ourselves hold.

In investing in bitcoin, we are obliged to be careful because of fraud and reliable hackers everywhere. We may not know the characteristics of the fraud, for that we must seek more knowledge about doing business in the crypto world.

That's why we have to be so smart in participating some projects or logging in to wallets online, we should have an alternate username and password to use, don't use the same username so that our  wallet account cannot be hacked immediately. Some wallet sites on the internet can be hack, so we must be carefull enough to secure our own account.

This is crypto and due to its decentralized nature, the total control of transactions and security to wallet lies in the care of the wallet holder. This is the main reason why every crypto user must keep safe their login details in order to avoid being scammed or phished. Never keep tokens on exchange sites after trading because exchange sites are always under attack.

If you don't own private keys, you don't own your coins. So if you don't want to daytrade, keep your coins out of the exchangers, in your wallet. Once they are lost, they are lost, and you can't do nothing. be safe.

Your own decision and precautions avoid you from scammed, so buy Bitcoin or altcoins only from the recognized exchange and not from the direct seller. And also do not open any phishing sites or emails which gives you higher return deals.
According to me protect your account with Google authentication, protect your private key, use other computer for any type of transactions. And if you store your Bitcoins or altcoins  for long term then use Trezor or Ledger Nano S.
But before do all these things, do your own research before any transaction, instead to faith on anyone. And if you made good research then you will never be scammed or hacked by anyone.

Yes, we have an responsibility to guard our cryptocurrencies to the hacker because we are the one who keeps and protects our private keys to other people on which is the only thing to access our wallet and having a big possibility to steal all the stored cryptocurrencies if we didn't keep it properly and expose all the information to the other people. Also be aware for those links that was been similar to the first website that we have been trusted because their is a big chance that the new website was been a phishing site that steals all the data that we have.

It is better to safe bitcoin in the separate wallet and doesn't put all of Bitcoin we have in one wallet because this will makes us very careful and extra secure. We need to hold some amount on the exchange so we can still trade and make a profit and after we get the profit, it is better to send the profit into another wallet. Stay safe and be careful in the cryptocurrency and in the exchanges that we use for trading in daily so we can keep bitcoin amount safe in our wallet.

The recent happenings of  hack are becoming rampant that exchanges are no longer safe. If the exchanges can get hacked this means you and me stand no chance at all so in view of this if you can do get cold wallet/ Web wallet to keep ur funds safe,  never leave ur long term bags on any exchange.

Do not visit random links and also stay away from airdrops requiring your private keys or Passphrase.

Do not store your private key or passphrase online.

It's called a private key or passphrase because only you should have it and not even the developers of the app has access to it and that is why if you lose your keys you have equally lost your walllet.

Stay positive and waiting for the bull run.
Stay safe everyone!

I don't really do that, storing private key online is a risk especially EXCHANGERs this a good warning to Newbies never to store anything that has to do with your wallet access online even on your phone and also make sure in all of your important ACCOUNTs you hit it with Google authenticator for your ACCTS to be safe and make sure its not everyone you let access to your phone.

Never trust an exchange you need to verify the security of your funds. Since you don't hold your own private key, the security of your fund is potential for vulnerabilities and tge worse case scenario is that the coin might be lost forever. Better transfer big funds in your own wallet.

Yes we must be very careful of what we are doing and where we are surfing online because anything online can be hack and is not safe.

I totally agree on this, this is why people should be discourage on storing funds on exchanges. OnCE you put your funds in an exchange,  you already do not have control over your fund. Instead of storing it in a exchange, better store it in an open source wallet like what I'm using called Hodler wallet,  it is open source meaning you have the Full control over your fund no third trusted party needed. It is also the also the only open source multi wallet avaible so you could store any coin you prefer.

I've been worried about this moment for a long time. I have not seen any project that would be aimed at solving this problem. Obviously, it is necessary to develop the ability to restore access to the wallet in case of loss of the private key, but at the moment it is not possible. Of course, but we have the anonymity of use, but do we need anonymity when the probability of losing their cherished coins is so high?

You are responsible on how you going to keep safe what you have. Sometimes account has been hacked because of the big amount that keep on it. You have to make multiple account or never keep an amount that you are holding in exchanges. To be safe is also on your hand because sometimes when we are overwhelmed on something we forget that we are doing and being careless.

In the first place, it is already suspicious why do they need the private key or passphrase when the only thing that they needed is your address. Be smart enough to know this things because only fools would give their private keys for just an airdrop. 10$ for your private key is not worth it guys. Be always safe.

Scams target people of all backgrounds, ages and income levels. All of us may be vulnerable to a scam at some time. Scammers succeed because they look and sound too good to be true, and catch you off guard when youíre not expecting it. Scammers are getting smarter and taking advantage of new technology. Protect yourself, be alert to the fact that scams exist, know who and what you are dealing with.

it is very important to be safe in crypto, because it is decentralisation system. be careful while trading and be aware of your wallet security. once you lost there is no possibilities of returning.

If you have larger qty then save it offline. Only keep smaller qty so that you can regularly buy/sell or want to use it frequently to pay different bills etc. Do not store everything under one exchange as well so that you have diversified the risk rather than holding under one wallet.

We have to wait for I guess the crypto dev team were creating a good wallet that is formidable to get access by hackers or hijackers. I have read a letter that was posted few months ago by Al Finney here in bitcointalk forum. If Al Finney will be successful in the developement of the digital wallet for sure cryptocurrency will go strong.

I think we need to be more careful on the equipment used to trade from the computer to the phone. Choose high security devices to keep the information. I use products from Apple. I do not try to advertise but it's really good.

MAC OS is not always the better option. It secure but not really 100% safe, always keep your password offline and never store cryptocurrency in exchange ( use cold wallet )

If you want to secure your funds then you have to be careful about hackers and scammers. You may surf random websites throughout the day but cannot be safe for your overall security. You need to take the proper protection of your assets, passwords, and wallets otherwise hackers will snatch your everything! So, everyone should learn how to be safe and sound. Buying a hardware wallet can be a good solution but still, people need to learn how to keep safe hardware wallets!

You say hardware wallets, but most people don't even care about choosing a good software wallet. I don't understand how people can not care about the security of their money so much as to choose closed source wallets? They can't verify what happens to the private keys and who sees them. When they import private keys to a closed source wallet essentially they can be giving them away to some random stranger. I believe that software wallets can be as secure as hardware wallets, but only if you use fully open source wallets with FULL source code for the current version available on GitHub, like Bitcoin Core, HODLER mulitwallet, Electrum etc. I don't get it how people can use a closed source wallet like Exodus just because it looks fancy...  ???

You have to secure your money and hackers are more alive and target more exchanges. For you to be safe, you have to do not keep all the amount on the exchanges when you want to hold them. Better to use multiple accounts where you can use on different transactions.

It would be better to keep your funds away from exchabges, you have no full control of your funds since you don't have the private key in your hand. Better use an open source wallet lije HODLER since you can easily detect the potential vulnerabilities and make quick action about this threats. Open source wallet also is hard to get hacked, it is safer than exchanges. Another thing is it is essential how tge backup is properly stored, the wallet I used has secure back up which is encrypted and can be save in email which no way a hacker could get the key.

I agree that we need to secure our account in every exchange we registered by activating every recommendation from that site. Besides that, it is better to save the coins in the offline wallet so if somehow, the exchanges got hacked, and we still save the coins without anyone can access. Perhaps, we might hear that many people get hacked because of the weak security from the exchanges and make people lost their coins/tokens. And this is why we need to secure our account so that the coins will be safe from the hacker but I realize that it depends on the security of the site and if they have strong and good security then the chance to get hacked is small.
