How to Make your Account more Secure

1. Password
You should set a complex and unique password with at least 8 characters which ideally includes lowercase letters, uppercase letters, numbers, and special characters. Your password should not show any fixed pattern, such as your name, email address, birth date, phone number, or any easy-to-access information. Patterns like 123456, qwerty, ascendex123, qazwsx and abc123 are not recommended, as opposed to desirable examples such as )kIy5M<. or you can also further secure your account by regularly changing password every two months it suggested to use manager last pass record and manage password.>
More importantly, please dont disclose your password to other people. Employees from AscendEX will never ask for your password.

 

2. Two-factor Authentication

We would recommend you binding Google Authenticator, which is a dynamic password generator introduced by Google. You need to scan the bar code or enter the encryption key. Then, the Authenticator will generate a 6-digit verification code every 10-15 seconds. When the Google Authenticator is enabled, you need to enter the 6-digit verification code shown on Google Authenticator every time you log in to AscendEX.

3. Be Cautious of Phishing Attack

Be cautious of emails sent to you in the disguise of AscendEX. Try not to click links or attachments contained in those suspicious emails. Make sure that you log in to the official website. AscendEX will never ask for your password, email verification code, or Google verification code.
 

How to Prevent Phishing Attack


1. What is phishing
The phishing attack is a fraud process in which the attacker masquerades as someone else to steal identity information such as account name, passwords, assets and identification numbers, etc. Attackers often pretend to be official staff from operation or custom service divisions or to be network manager in order to gain trust from victims.

2. Mode of Phishing Transmission
Virus: Perpetrators clone a website identical to the trading platform and then send it to user  by using virus programs or malware, or put this malicious website on search pages to trick users into logging in to steal users’ account, password, transaction information, and assets.

SMS: By using message service, perpetrators can disguise as the trading platform and send fraud messages to users, claiming that users have won the lottery or that their accounts have been stolen. Users then will be urged to log in to the website designated in the messages to verify their identification. Since the designated site is false and is developed by perpetrators to steal user’s information in the first place, users’ account, password, and other identification information will be obtained by perpetrators once users log in to the malicious website and follow the fraudulent instructions.

Develop a false website: Perpetrators will first develop a false website and then issue false event information on social media platforms including QQ and Wechat full of hollow promises. When users log in to the malicious website, their accounts, passwords and other identification information will be obtained by perpetrators.

Use a false official email box: Perpetrators will send avalanches of fraudulent emails to trick users into logging in to the malicious website that looks identical to the official trading platform website by clicking the links attached under pretexts such as lottery winning or system upgrading. Once users follow the false instructions, the account or password information they input will get stolen.

Forward phishing website links to communities: Trick users into logging in to the malicious site.

3. Prevent Phishing Attack
  • Use relatively safer browsers such as chrome and upgrade it to the latest version
  • Refrain from installing random browser plug-ins
  • Refrain from open suspicious links or enter AscendEX account or password on unknown websites. Otherwise, your information might get stolen by phishing website or Trojan horse
  • Install anti-virus software and remove computer or phone viruses periodically
  • Update system on time
  • Please do not disclose the verification code you receive to anyone else
  • Please confirm that the domain name you use to log in to the official website or trade belongs to AscendEX (ascendex.com)


How to Prevent a Credential Stuffing Attack


What is a Credential Stuffing Attack?

Credential stuffing is a type of cyberattack in which stolen account credentials are used to gain unauthorized access to user accounts through large-scale automated login requests, directed against a web application. Commonly pulled from a data breach, the stolen account credentials are most commonly lists of usernames and/or email addresses with corresponding passwords. Credential stuffing attackers simply automate the logins for a large number (thousands to millions) of previously discovered credential pairs using standard web automation tools.

Credential stuffing attacks are possible because many users reuse the same username/password combination across multiple websites. Despite the low success rate, advances in bot technology also makes credential stuffing a viable attack.

 
Best Ways to Prevent Credential Stuffing Attack

1.     Avoid using the same password for multiple websites

AscendEX recommends that users create a unique password for their AscendEX accounts. Users can also opt to use a less popular email service provider or dedicate a separate email address for their AscendEX account to increase the security level.

2.     Create a strong password for your AscendEX account

Avoid using simple, adjacent keyboard combinations such as “123456” or “111111”, or any other easily accessible information such as names and birthdays as your password. Instead, use a combination of upper and lower case letters as well as numbers and special characters to give your password an extra layer of protection.

3.     Change your password regularly

Ideally, you should change your password on a regular basis. Best practices recommend that users change their passwords every two months.

4.     Activate multi-factor authentication

Besides creating a strong password, AscendEX strongly recommends that users set up Google (2fa) Authentication for their accounts.  

Deposit

What is a destination Tag/Memo/Message?

A Destination Tag/Memo/Message is an additional address feature built up of numbers necessary for identifying a transaction recipient beyond a wallet address.

Here is why this is needed:

To facilitate the management, most trading platforms (like AscendEX) give one address for all crypto traders to deposit or withdraw all types of digital assets. Therefore, a Tag/Memo is used to determine what actual individual account a given transaction should be assigned and credited to.

To make it simple, the address users send one of these cryptocurrencies to can be equated to an apartment building address. The Tag/Memo identifies which specific apartment users live in, in the apartment building.

Note: If the deposit page requires the Tag/Memo/Message information, users must enter a Tag/Memo/Message when depositing on AscendEX to ensure that the deposit can be credited. Users need to follow the tag rules of the target address when withdrawing assets from AscendEX.

Which cryptocurrencies use Destination Tag technology?

The following cryptocurrencies available on AscendEX utilize destination tag technology:
 

Cryptocurrency

Feature Name

XRP

Tag

XEM

Message

EOS

Memo

BNB

Memo

ATOM

Memo

IOST

Memo

XLM

Memo

ABBC

Memo

ANKR

Memo

CHZ

RUNE

Memo

SWINGBY

Memo


When users deposit or withdraw those assets, they must provide a correct address along with a corresponding Tag/Memo/Message. A missed, incorrect or mismatched Tag/Memo/Message may lead to failed transactions and the assets cannot be retrieved.
 

What is the number of block confirmations?

Confirmation:

After a transaction is broadcast to the Bitcoin network, it may be included in a block that is published to the network. When that happens, it is said that the transaction has been mined at a depth of one block. With each subsequent block that is found, the number of blocks deep is increased by one. To be secure against double spending, a transaction should not be considered as confirmed until it is a certain number of blocks deep.

Number of Confirmations:

The classic bitcoin client will show a transaction as "n/unconfirmed" until the transaction is 6 blocks deep. Merchants and exchanges who accept Bitcoins as payment can and should set their threshold as to how many blocks are required until funds are considered confirmed. Most trading platforms that bear the risk from double spending require 6 or more blocks.


Why Haven’t I Received My Deposits

If a deposit has been made but not credited to your account yet, you may take the following steps to check the transaction status.

Get your Transaction ID (TXID). Please contact the sender if you don’t have it.

Check your block confirmation status with Transaction ID (TXID) on the blockchain browser.

If the number of block confirmations is lower than the platform requirement, please be patient;
