Steem.Ninja - Increased Security and Account Recovery

in steemninja •  9 months ago  (edited)

Since first introducing Steem.Ninja, we have gotten many overwhelming responses towards this new and unique service that was developed in order to easily create new Steem accounts without hassle or having to wait a long time to be approved. The feedback has been incredibly valuable, so thank you!

Within a few hours after releasing our first post @jonolsonproject was the first account purchased through @steem.ninja.

Without further ado, we would like to introduce two important updates we recently deployed on the live servers in response to feedback received from the Steemit community.

Increased Security

We know that the master password is the most sensitive information associated with a Steem account. In the first version of Steem.ninja, we generated the keys for a new account on our own server. The latest update allows the private keys and the account password to never leave the computer on which the keys are generated. Only the public keys are now sent to our server. This means that only the account creator will have access to the private keys. We would like to thank @mids106 for his thoughts and help on this.

Account Recovery

Sensitive keys and passwords can be compromised. Seeing someone else taking over your account is probably the most horrific thing a Steem user can think of. That is the reason why we now offer an Account Recovery Service:

https://account.steem.ninja/account_recovery

Simply fill out the form and we will validate your request as quickly as possible, then get back to you.

Please understand that we can not help in case you lost your password


Upcoming Features Explained

More Payment Methods

We will soon add Apple Pay and Google Pay to Steem.Ninja.

More SP

With one of the up coming updates, you will be able to choose between a 15SP and a 70SP delegation. While the 15SP option will still cost $2USD, the 70SP option will be offered at a slightly higher rate to cover our expenses.

Buy Steem/SBD/SP

As we definitely see the demand for it, we are working on creating an extension to our existing account creation services which will allow users to easily buy Steem, SBD, and SP with their credit/debit cards.

We are continuing to make relationships with a variety of payment processors to make the system more anti-fragile and flexible.

Secure accounts for family & friends

As some of you know already, Oracle-D offers a voucher based account creation service for visitors of crypto events. While these vouchers are given away at an event to promote Steem to new potential users, some attendees asked where they can buy a voucher code for their relatives and friends. Therefore we will soon add an option to buy a voucher code with your card which is valid for individual account creations. An account created with a voucher code will also receive the 15SP delegation for the first 90 days.

Guys, this looks great!

A quick edit though, you accidentally say "loose your keys" rather than "lose your keys" on the sign-up page ;)

Thanks! We just updated our website.

Only the public keys are now sent to our server

Yours? I hope there's no way by which a compromise on the same will reveal the stored data, keys.

Hi @murathe,

public keys are always public for everyone. https://steemd.com/@murathe
Even if our server would get compromised that would have no effect on your Steem account.
Furthermore we do never receive any of your credit card details.

From the official Stripe documentaion:

Tokenization ensures that no sensitive card data ever needs to touch your server, so your integration can operate in a PCI-compliant way. Card details are never fully revealed, although Stripe’s Dashboard and API do provide limited information about the card (such as its last four digits, expiration date, and brand).

Source: https://stripe.com/docs/quickstart#collecting-payment-information

None of these informations is stored on our server. It is securely stored on stripes own infrastructure.

Previously the keys were generated on our server but never stored.

Well, that sounds pretty much secure. I'll be taking my first move soon on a friend's Ac and get to meet the process in person. Thanks.

Wow, adding the ability to buy steem/sbd/sp directly with fiat easily would be a huge benefit to make steem much more easily accessible. I really like the other updates, particularly adding Google pay, but a convenient fiat-to-steem service would be awesome.

Starting withbobe is always the first step! Look forward to seeing how this develops as it could be a great way to bring new users over immediately. Thanks for your efforts!

This is a great service. Can't wait for the next update. Steem via credit card is awesome

WOW, this is really great news, I'm looking forward to the new developments.

Q. I was just wondering is it possible for existing Steemit users to begin using the referral programme without first signing up through steem.ninja - for example if I already own a steemit account and user name can I use my user name to refer new members with steem.ninja or must I only use a user name that was created with the steem.ninja account creator?

The referral program is open to everyone.

Suberb!
