I am mostly using monero-cli. But a question about safety of mymonero.com.

If I log in to mymonero.com from a linux computer which does not have any keylogger, which are the ways and probabilities that someone may steal xmr?

What are your safety recommedations when using mymonero.com?

It is reasonably safe as all keyrelated functions only run locally. But there is always a chance of mim attacks and other vulnerabilities you might have been, or will be ,exposed to. So unless you are very diligent on making sure you are not compromised : only for a small amount is the general recommendation. Like what you would lose if you lost your wallet. Your mileage may of course vary on what that may be (;-)



The mim, the man in the middle attack is I guess not likely if my computer is not compromised? So if I restart my linux computer by live dvd there cannot be any malware keylogger or such. And that way the man in the middle attack is not really likely?

I have a knoppix disk as my emergency OS. Same thing it boots from a disc.

Unlikely agreed.You are still trusting a js download which could be compromised for whatever reason.  Although it is generally trusted, my tinfoil hat says small money only still.

Hello, I am new in the monero world and english is not my first language,

May be someone can help me? I tried to send some from mymonero to my Gui wallet. It dosent work, I got the message "invalid adress prefix". When I am checking my adress which I generated with the Gui interface, I noticed that it will not start with with "4". I made a new Gui wallet adress, the same again, without the starting "4". May be because there is no "4" I cant send? Some body has an idea, Thanks....

Does it start with a 9? If so, you likely have the testnet wallet option checked in the wizard.

You should sell, I hear Dash and ETH are Great pump and dump coins. You should buy one of them. Not sure why you thought XMR was one?

Using GUI, what's the procedure to create a cold wallet on an offline machine and subsequently set up its watch-only GUI counterpart on an online machine? I just wanna be sure that I don't screw up.



If you want to create an offline (i.e. cold) (paper) wallet, you can follow one of these guides:

https://www.reddit.com/r/Monero/comments/6b2od3/a_stepbystep_guide_for_cold_storage_and_offline/

https://www.reddit.com/r/Monero/comments/5limu9/taushet_usb_monero_cold_wallet_generator_release/

https://www.reddit.com/r/Monero/comments/48cgmd/an_extensive_guide_for_securely_generating_an/

If you want to use the GUI you likely need to make some tweaks to the guides, but those will be fairly trivial. In addition, if you get stuck somewhere and need help, feel free to PM me.

Thanks for the links. The concise procedure quoted by bitebits (from saddambitcoin) above seems to be fine though. The only hitch is that the GUI window does not scale properly within a netbook's (setting it up as the cold/offline device) 1024 x 600 screen resolution. The GUI window fills the screen but the "Advanced Options" buttons at the bottom are cut off and rendered inaccessible as the GUI window cannot be moved around nor does it allow scrolling (not able to sign a transaction file as a consequence). Has this been reported before? Any solution?  Is this something that can be fixed in future releases?



Sounds like one of those edge case bugs. Could you open a new issue on Github with your issue, system specifications, and exact operating system?

https://github.com/monero-project/monero-core/issues

Hopefully one of the GUI devs will fix it for a future release Smiley

Is it kosher for me to sign up and post over there? I thought GitHub is exclusively for coders/devs (brainy ones unlike me) only. That said, I still struggle in navigating and making sense of the site. Too complex for me and the techie sophistication is intimidating. I'm just a regular Joe, hence I'm here in BCT.

Try the control/minus key combination that shrinks the screen image.

It doesn't work. Even if it does work and shrink the size of the GUI window, it'll just cut off a lot more of it and therefore rendering more GUI window features/buttons/real estate inaccessible. The issue is that it doesn't allow scrolling when any part of the window is not visible/cut off. This is true on both Windows 7 x64 and Linux Mint 18.1 x64 on the same netbook.



Apparently your issue was already reported earlier and has been fixed in master, which means it will be fixed in the next release. See:

https://github.com/monero-project/monero-core/issues/754

It's generally the same issue as my experience but I have observed more undesirable quirks of the GUI. Should I add it to the discussion? (i.e. if it's kosher for me to sign up and proceed as I'm not a coder/dev)?

No coding knowledge needed, if you sign up for an account and click "New Issue" you'll be able to figure out the rest. The more detail you can provide about the problem the better, specifically what operating system are you on (osx/windows/linux).

Calm down, man! Are you investing or speculating? If Monero is slow to rise, but is not falling and continues to present updates, news, has a strong and great community, there is no mistake, Monero will go to the moon! Do not give up.

WTF! I signed up but I got the following message on a bright pink bar across the top of the page:

"Your account has been flagged.
Because of that, your profile is hidden from the public. If you believe this is a mistake, contact support to have your account status reviewed."

Well, I guess I'm not meant to be over there in the first place after all. Like I said, too complicated...never easy.

Thanks for the encouragement anyway.

This is mainly caused by BOTNETS, which mine monero (it seems that about 30-35% of the entire monero network hashate - botnets). These fa**s increase net difficulty on 25-35% just within few hours. They sell a large amount of xmr and holding price in the range of 0.017-0.018btc

Does it start with a 9? If so, you likely have the testnet wallet option checked in the wizard.

No, it doesnt matter with or not testnet option I always get worse adresses, the last one without nestnet started with "A", I have win 10 system 64.

That's rather odd. Could you post a screenshot of the Send tab of the GUI?
