    2 Factor Authentication is essential for currently for any site that deals with transaction and socially any site deals crypto currency . Kindly implement ASAP ,
    OTP base 2 factor Authentication is relatively costly and their are issues with OTP delivery via SMS.
    Better way to implement using Google authenticator as it is easy and also standard among all the prominent currency exchanges so hopefully it would be better to it . Let mw know if any further information required

    Hi Jaygatz, we already added the 2FA feature when we released XDC. As of now, we are using email to send over code for transaction verification and will be soon adding Google 2FA for logging in. Thanks for your query :)

    An important announcement for all the community members:

    From now on, when you'll be logging into your forum account, you'll be asked for an OTP. You'll be receiving this OTP over your registered Email Id with the forum. This 2FA or 2 Factor Authentication is implemented keeping in mind the security of community forum and it members. As mentioned earlier, this is essential for our site as we deal with cryptocurrency where security can't be compromised at any cost!

    Sorry for any inconvenience caused. I seek your support and cooperation in this :)
