RE: Introducing Hive Account Recovery

in #hive3 years ago

I appreciate your work but this service is still dependant on your existence!

Sort:  

We are all dependent on the existence of our recovery account.

First, I guess my computer will survive me. The only "weak" point is the server running the small portion of code used to initiate the recovery process. It can run on a very small VPS instance and I can pre-pay for it for the next century.

Second, anyone can change its recovery account at any moment, should he/she learns I'm no more of this world or I or my service is no more trusted.

The strong point of this service is to provide an automated and reliable "identity" verification process.

This said, my plan for the future is to "decentralize" it and integrate it into the hive.io infrastructure.
