Kraken experts hacked Trezor bitcoin wallet in 15 minutes
https://preview.redd.it/f9188s6ytqe41.jpg?width=1000&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=443676778a7a18ad4f78c256e69d8076c037c9b4 Kraken security experts managed to extract the SEED phrase from the Trezor hardware wallet — it took them 15 minutes to do this. To make a similar attack, an attacker needs physical access to a Trezor One or Trezor Model T wallet, as well as an inexpensive device that can cause a voltage glitch. Such device that can be bought for about $75. “The attack takes advantage of inherent flaws within the microcontroller used in the Trezor wallets. This unfortunately means that it is difficult for the Trezor team to do anything about this vulnerability without a hardware redesign.” “"It's a flaw that's present in the hardware, not something they can just put a formal update on and fix it for all their customers. To address this problem, they would essentially need to put out a new device," said Nick Percoco, director of security at Kraken. Trezor said that the attack cannot happen remotely, and it will not work if users turn on the BIP 39 passphrase. Earlier, Kraken specialists found a similar vulnerability in KeepKey wallets.
I need to pay an online vendor with Bitcoin. I have a funded Kraken account (they say they're not a wallet...?) and admit to being stumped on what step to take next.
I do this so seldom, it's a bit of a mystery to me. Do I need to transfer funds from Kraken to a wallet? And then from the wallet to my vendor? HALP. Many thanks. EDIT: Thank you for the help. Here's what I found: In Kraken, you first have to add a bitcoin receiving address. Once the address is added and confirmed, you can "withdraw" to it (strange terminology, but whatever). I was able to add a bitcoin address in Kraken for the vendor I wanted to pay, so in theory it appears that I could have made payment from Kraken directly. But since the minimum withdrawl from Kraken was greater than the amount I needed to pay, I opted to add my own BRD wallet address and transfer funds there first. After receiving the funds in BRD, I then made payment to my vendor for the required amount. I'm sure this is all elementary to people thoroughly versed in the cryptocurrency world but it's an odd bit of hoop-jumping to those unfamiliar with the process. Thanks again for the suggestions/assistance.
Kraken: We won't support native Segwit Bech32 addresses until there is "full support in wallets such as bitcoin core"
https://twitter.com/krakensupport/status/949596199006306304 When confronted about not supporting Segwit fully, exchanges are starting to point the finger at bitcoin core's slow implementation in areas such as change address management, bech32 native sending or full native wallet generation. Segwit would be adopted much faster if this basic support was in the seminal node implementation. Just sayin.
BCH sent from Bitcoin.com wallet to Kraken, where are the BitcoinSV
Hey everyone, Yesterday I sent BCH from bitcoin.com wallet to my Kraken account, naively hoping that the bitcoin SV would magically appear on my Kraken account. Well, the BCH did appear, but no bitcoin SV so far. I contacted the Kraken support team and here's what they told me: I looked at the the TX IDc5e54cdc2f40e3615fcbfc503ab55abceddd953aa134d90f4006b721c20f8d9fand it has not been broadcasted on the BSV chain. As we indicated on our public support centerhere, we will only credit BSV when the deposit transaction has been broadcasted on the BSV chain. Rest assured what this means is, if you do have BSV, then the BSV is still in your own wallet and you can still manually send the funds using a wallet that supports BSV. So, as the bitcoin.com wallet is not compatible with bitcoin SV, I tried Atomic Wallet and I'm not seing any Bitcoin SV in there. I then contacted the bitcoin.com support team but they told me the following: Sorry to hear that has happened, if you sent your BCH to your Kraken account, and your BSV did not arrive, then you may have sent both your (BCH) and your Bitcoin SV to your Kraken BCH address.You should have restored your wallet using your private key with an app that supports both Bitcoin Cash (BCH) and Bitcoin SV (BSV), it was not recommended to send your (BCH) before splitting your coins. I thought of sending back the BCH from kraken to my Atomic Wallet to see if the Bitcoin SV would be included but I think this would not work as the BCH sent back from Kraken would not be the exact same that I sent in the first place; Would anyone be able to help me out on this one using the transaction ID in bold?

i am having a problem transferring Bitcoin Cash from Trezor wallet to Binance (and also kraken)
i have very carefully cut and pasted the address on Binance in the send address on the Trezor wallet and i have done this numerous times. each time it says "invalid address. " i then tried the same process with a different address (of course) on Kraken and once again, the Wallet says invalid address. however, i am cutting and pasting the address for Bitcoin Cash so there is no way that i am getting it wrong both times. it is November 11, well ahead of the fork. suggestions greatly appreciated. thanks david [email protected]
Once you’re done buying bitcoin, you should look for a way to secure it. The best way to do this is with a wallet.
