1  Bitcoin / Alternative clients / Warning for Ledger Nano S users / buyers on: May 07, 2018, 11:43:18 PM
Hi Guys

I have been looking for a secure way to store the small amount of BTC I have, but also have quick access to it.  So after asking members on here a few days ago I decided I would go for an hardware wallet.

Tonight I decided I would go for the Ledger Nano S.

I went to buy one off the official site but didn't have a BitPay account, so decided to look elsewhere, thats when I came across the info that this device is vulnerable to supply chain hacks, so if you have one and didn't get it from the official site you need to check your device.

News article about it here: https://techcrunch.com/2018/03/21/a-15-year-old-hacked-the-secure-ledger-crypto-wallet/

Heres info about the hack here https://medium.com/@thepariscormier/how-to-hack-a-ledger-hardware-wallet-c38a4ac49d59

I think if bought directly from ledger they should be safe, but if bought from anywhere else be extra careful, make sure its fully updated and confirm its safety with ledger if possible.

I hope this saves someone from losing out,
Rick

Hi guys
I know this might sound like a newbie question, but Ive not had enough bitcoin to think about putting any in cold storage since Cryptsy ripped me off when they went down Sad
But just lately ive built myself back up a bit, and just need to check my understanding of a creating a cold wallet is correct ? This is what I think was the best way but im not sure Huh

1. Download latest BTC client
2. move to a pc not connected to the internet.
3. Create an address on that PC without internet.
4. Send fund to address created on PC with no internet access.
5. Save keys in safe place Smiley

Also I was wondering if there are any 100% safe third party wallets that enable quick access if needed ?

Sorry if my question has been covered many times, but I just don't want to make a big mistake.

Thanks
Rick

Hi guys,
I was just wondering why so many haters and spammers are getting away with so much abuse and off topic garbage.
Im a member of many forums of all different subjects, and I see these kind of people get banned all the time, but not on here, why ?
They seem to spam just to up there post count, and most seem to have gained some merits, and are advertising in their signatures.
Am I the only one that thinks its wrong ?
