Part of the design is that compromise of their service is a little bit pointless. They can not sign transactions spending your money to begin with, as the transactions also need a signature from your wallet too. There’s no scenario in which the service can spend your money without your participation to some degree. In unlikely scenario the service attempts ...

When using a multisig Green Address wallet your funds are locked in a 2-of-2 multisig account, i.e. if you want to spend money from that account you need both your signature and Green Address' signature. This is done so that Green Address can guarantee that you will not try to double spend money from that account. This allows Green Address to grant you ...

As a few have suggested, Green Addresses '1.0' had issues. Some improvements that were suggested as early as in 2011 which you can see implemented in GreenAddress prevents users from double spending transactions via multisignature thus allowing zero confirmation for third parties that trust the GreenAddress provider, yet preventing users from risking their ...

The only reason I can think of that would result in the above with a valid OTP seed is invalid OTP settings (but default should work for Google Auth) OR incorrect time on the device OR invalid time (drifted) on the GreenAddress service clock. I checked for the last one personally and the services clock is fine: in my experience most of the time is time/...

The GreenAddress website explains the recovery lockout in their FAQ. As zero locktime is equivalent to the situation after the nLocktime expires, the following FAQ paragraph is relevant: Why am I am being asked to redeposit my funds? Once the nLockTime period expires these nLockTime transactions would allow you to recover the funds in the 2of2 account ...

For all wallets, which support BIP-0039 (still draft status), the mnemonic passphrase is enough to completely backup your wallet. As I can read from the greenaddress.it website they support BIP-0039 (not tried), so all you need is the passphrase (seed). Theoretically, you can import the seed into any other wallet implementation and manage your bitcoins from ...

It seems that you have entered a valid mnemonic, but it cannot decrypt the nlocktime.zip file. It could be that the mnemonic you entered is not the one associated with the wallet (which can be used to decrypt the nlocktime.zip). I replicated your error by using another mnemonic in one of the examples (garecovery/examples/example_2of2.sh): $ garecovery-cli -...

If you still need help retrieving your bitcoin cash, I made an online tool for recovering bitcoin cash from GreenAddress (there still might be some more unclaimed bitcoin cash). Recovery tool link: https://bcash.charlesmoyes.com/ YouTube walkthrough: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A8KYvtMhMbI Post on /r/bitcoin: https://www.reddit.com/r/Bitcoin/comments/...

Unfortunately if you had a default GreenAddress wallet (2of2) it is too late - you had to move funds out prior to bcash being born as per the blog post. This is because the bcash altcoin (rightly) uses an anti replay protection mechanism which prevents the bitcoin transaction to be replayed on the bcash blockchain. This applies for both transactions made ...

Unfortunately, if your wallet/exchange does not support BCC, then you have probably forfeited it i.e. left it to their disposal. The only way to find out would be to message their support and see if it is supported. If it is, you will automatically have a balance of both. There are a few exchanges supporting BCC trade including bitrex.com (or have a look at ...

On the top right corner of GreenBits there's a menu with a number of entries: the first one is named "Settings" and we should select that, then "Info & settings" and then you can change the fiat currency, the bitcoin denomination as well as your preferred exchange if available.

For every bitcoin transaction you make or receive in a 2of2 wallet the platform sends you an email with an encrypted zip file containing all relevant transactions (spending all your utxo, unspent transaction output) with nlocktime set and partially signed (by GreenAddress). When you normally spend on the platform, you will make some of these presigned ...

Trying to build a centralized credit system would require a mint, which is why this protocol was build in the first place. We don't want mints and on top of that we don't actually need mints for most functions. I would suggest you take a look at those whole new possibilities that come along with this protocol, such as coloring, escrow services, etc and ...
