Ripple User Loses Funds, Active XRP Community of Crypto Twitter Jumps In To Help

If there is anything that can be said about the XRP community, it is that they bond together. When Twitter user XRP4Fam posted about their loss of both BTC and XRP from his ledger, it gained a lot of activity and attention.

However, attention was not enough, and the XRP community decided to spring into action.

The tweet explained that XRP4Fam’s phrases had been stolen by a hacker and that he had no idea who to contact to help him solve this issue. However, he tagged the Binance Twitter page, along with Changpeng Zhao to help. Zhao responded by saying that the user needs to file a support ticket.

However, the user explained that the team was unable to determine the user who ended up taking the funds.

Luckily, Zhao saw the problem and decided to take action. He got the user’s ticket number, discovering the that seed was compromised.

The seed words, which is also known as a mnemonic, are basically the key to gaining access to crypto funds. The user says that this phrase was stored on a note-taking application from a third party, and he said that the application was hacked. Though the phone and computer of the user were not hacked, it appears that the app did via an online attack or an information leak.

One of the biggest proponents of the XRP community, Tiffany Hayden, jumped into the conversation, telling the user that XRP proponent XRPTrump is more supportive of exchanges. The proponent added that having a user hold their own keys is risky, though there are disagreements about this in the community.

At this point, there has been no update of the lost funds. However, the user posted a screenshot for more help, showing activity that the hacker must have taken beforehand.
