Hey, can you do a little explaining for me. How does someone leak their keys? And how do you guys help retrieve and protect them?


Usually they accidentally paste them into a post/comment or put them in the transfer memo when they needed to put the public memo key instead.

  • How I retrieve them: scanning all the blocks of the Hive blockchain
  • How I protect them: I automatically put their funds into their savings and notify them of the leak in multiple ways

Thanks for passing by :)
