So many undefines with that account. Are you sure the "leaked key" wasn't really an international spy sending a code to confirm that the mission was complete and the world is once again saved?πŸ•΅οΈπŸ˜

Ooops, it was leaked on HIVE and not on Steem. Fixing the values. I check them all after posting them with a command, missed this one. Thanks πŸ‘
