ANNOUNCING BORZALOM 777

As mentioned, there are many MANY discussions and developments ongoing with the board and one thing in particular that has been requested is an open session with Borzalom.

Well, I am happy to announce that he has agreed to answer questions once per month and so we will turn this into a monthly event.

The name of the event will be 777 WITH BORZALOM and what this means is: 7 questions at 7 pm GMT on the 7th of the month. Our first session will be on Oct 7th which will give us plenty of time to prepare. We will use an audio platform because I believe hearing Borz speak and answer questions in his own words will carry tremendous weight moving forward.

Between now and then we will test a couple different formats and will later announce exactly how this will proceed.

Also during this time, we would like the XTRABYTES community to come up with a list of questions, from which the Board will choose the best 7 questions that CAN BE ANSWERED. Please post your questions in Slack at the #xtrabrainstorm channel or you can post here on the forum also.


Thank you!
Dave, Zoltan and the XTRABYTES Board

Secure YOUR Coins

This morning I woke up to a report on Slack that one of our members had lost their XBY on an exchange. This is most unfortunate and prompted me to write this post.

The amount of coins and the name of the exchange are totally irrelevant because it can happen on ANY exchange with ANY amount of coins. What is important is quite simply offering some small advice on the best ways to prevent this from happening. So, here we go:

1. GET YOUR COINS OFF THE EXCHANGES

If you are not actively trading your coins, you are taking totally unnecessary risk by leaving them on an exchange (ANY EXCHANGE). Even if you are trading some coins, make the decision on how many you want to play with and remove the remaining coins.

To do this, you simply need to go to our ANN @ https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1864397.msg18538512#msg18538512 and choose your wallet download from the list you will find under the WALLETS section.

The following are the latest wallets which are available:

Windows - https://github.com/borzalom/XtraBYtes/releases/download/pre-v1.2.0.2-win/xtrabytes-qt.exe
MAC/OSX - https://github.com/borzalom/XtraBYtes/releases/download/pre-v1.2.0.2/xtrabytes-Qt-OSX-v1202.dmg
Linux - https://github.com/borzalom/XtraBYtes/releases/download/pre-v1.2.0.2-win/xtrabytes-qt-linux-v1202


2. SET UP 2FA (TWO FACTOR AUTHENTICATION) ON EVERYTHING

Not only do I have 2fa on my exchange accounts, I also have my Social media and Email accounts all protected by 2fa. For the time it takes to set this up, the peace of mind that comes with knowing that nobody can access your accounts without your password and your phone in their hand is a great recipe for sleeping better at night and relaxing during the day.

Also, for those of you who do not have smartphones, you can still use 2fa through email and even your email can be protected by using a different email to authenticate. The simple point here is to ensure that a hacker would need access to 2 different accounts in order to access 1 account. This is how you protect yourself when dealing with information and finance on the Internet.

Its not just the World Wide Web - It is the WILD WORLD WEB and it definitely can be very wild and savage if you do not protect yourself.

I'm not trusting my own laptop more than Cryptopia. It's either Ledger or exchange for me.

But if you do use an exchange, you really need to follow all the best practices. Unique passwords, 2FA, always type the url instead of clicking on links, etc.

I hope it wasn't a great deal of coins. Was their account compromised or was it the exchanges fault?

I agree with your statement. Following best practices online keeps one at least more safe from hackers.

I understand that keeping coins on exchanges is a necessary short term evil but long term it's the worse thing you can do for your coins, learn about wallet security and you'll be happy you did. Save a few backups and stay safe

You won't find very many people that have been doing this for very long that think keeping more than necessary on an exchange is a good idea.

If you think it is, you just haven't been doing this long enough. Learn to manage your own security and wallets.

Correct and it is important to note that the task is not so daunting and there are plenty of tutorials out there.
