Yesterday I was not sufficiently attentive while changing my keys in Bitshares. Instead of changing keys for child account I changed keys for the parent account. As result, I have account
hipster with active and owner keys from account
hipster. So recursive, wow. Here is proof. I am bit disappointed that neither frontend app nor blockchain itself was not able to understand that user is gonna make stupid mistake.
Want to leave here for history my loss:
- 226,599.99403 BTS (2.3 BTC)
- 600 BitUSD (0.4 BTC)
- 17611 BTS (0.2 BTC) lifetime subscription of account
- Future revenue from affiliates
- Trust from using this account since inception - priceless
Total about $4k USD which is not huge but sad.
Fortunately, some assets such as SFUND, CFUND and SPIES will be possible to restore due to issuer policy somewhere in the future.
@abit, @xeroc, @roelandp, @xeldal - just curious is there any way to find a solution to restore this account? I understand that this requires hardfork but I don't think I am the only loser who will have such problem in the future.
