1  Economy / Trading Discussion / How to enable 2FA for Binance using Authy on: April 08, 2018, 11:58:23 PM
Install Authy

The best way to manage all your 2FA accounts is to use the Authy app. It enables you to have a single mobile app for all your 2FA accounts and you can sync them across multiple devices, even accessing them on the desktop. Install Authy on your device by searching for it in your device’s app store.

Important: If any sites prompt you to use Google Authenticator for two-factor authentication, note that you can always substitute the Authy 2FA app instead. Although they work in similar ways, Authy is more feature-rich and allows for multi-device syncing, cloud-backups, and easier account recovery should you change or lose your phone or device. Read more information on the features of Authy here.
     
Locate 2FA

In order to make withdrawals from your Binance account, you are required to set up two-factor authentication. Each time you sign in you will be reminded to enable 2FA.
 
Binance offers SMS-based 2FA and app-based 2FA options. And although they promote Google Authenticator, remember that you can use Authy 2FA instead.  You will locate the beginning of this process after you sign in, on the lower right quadrant of your account settings page.
 
On the next slide, you’ll be prompted to download the 2FA app. If you haven’t downloaded Authy yet, do so here: https://authy.com/download/ When ready, click “Next Step.”
   
Enable 2FA

On the next screen, you will see a QR code that you will need to capture with the Authy app. Launch Authy on your phone while you leave this page open. On your device’s Authy app, Click ‘Add Account’ at the bottom.

You’ll be prompted to hold your phone up to your computer to scan the QR code. Capture the QR code that was displayed in your terminal. When capture is completed, Authy will automatically prompt you to name your new account (we’ll soon add a Binance logo, too, so this will be automatic). After you’ve named it, click ‘Done’.
 
You will now see a Binance 2FA account in your Authy app.
   
Finish Setup

Back on your Binance page, you’ll be prompted to make note of your 16-digit alpha-numeric backup code. Copy this down and keep it safe, you will need it if you ever lose your device. Once copied, click “Next Step.”

 
To complete setup, you must re-enter:
your 16 digit key
your Binance log-in password
and the Binance 2FA key from your Authy device

When completed, click “Enable Google Authentication.”

Your Binance account will now show that you have enabled two-factor authentication.

PLEASE ENABLE 2FA VERIFICATION TO ENSURE THAT YOUR FUNDS ARE SAFE FROM HACKERS

3  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Service Discussion (Altcoins) / Coinbase Exchange To Support Withdrawal Of Bitcoin Forks on: April 07, 2018, 01:25:19 AM
Coinbase announced that it will support the withdrawal of Bitcoin forks across Coinbase products in the coming month,  a Coinbase Medium post stated April 5.

While the exchange announced that this will make the withdrawal of assets associated with Bitcoin forks more convenient, Coinbase stresses that they are not announcing trading support for any specific assets at the time. Coinbase has no plans to support new forked assets in Coinbase Commerce.

Support for the explicit withdrawal of Bitcoin forks will also be provided on GDAX. Coinbase Custody will also build infrastructure to support the withdrawal of Bitcoin Forks.

Hard forks in digital currency are created via forks of the Blockchain rules, sharing  a transaction history up to a certain time and date. Major Bitcoin forks are: Bitcoin Private (BTCP), Bitcoin Cash (BCH), and Bitcoin Gold (BTG).
