DTube Account: Lost Key Replacement (a one time only process)
Hi fellow Dtubers/Steemians,
For the vast majority of active DTubers at the moment who doesn't have any issue with their account keys: this post does not apply to you :)
This post details the required steps needed to perform account recovery in the event that you have lost your key
N.B.: we intend to ensure that all users are very well aware that they own responsibility for their keys and that ...
...this will be a one time only process
We are able to perform this activity only because DTube is transitioning between a testnet and a mainnet in the near future.
We will be bringing a lot of content from the testnet into the mainnet - including accounts.
If you have lost your key and notify us via the process defined below, DTube to replace the public key for your account during this transition - and during this transition only!
This will be a one time only process
If you lose your key again, your account will be unrecoverable, you will need to make a new account and you won't be able to get the DTCs from our main-net airdrop.
DTube does not intend to perform this activity EVER AGAIN! This is your only opportunity to recover your account if you have lost your keys, it will not happen again
Having heavily stressed upon the one-off account recovery, lets move on to the process:
Step 1: get a new key
You will need to acquire a new key pair from here
Click "Save to Disk" and download the provided file, then ensure the file is backed up in at least two additional locations (desktop, phone & laptop for example). You can now close this page.
Step 2: send an encrypted memo to @dtube containing your new PUBLIC key
This step verifies that you have created a new key and that you are the holder of the key which has been created.
To do so add a hash at the state of the memo.
For example I would send
Plain text keys will still be counted. However users may receive messages from key-protection services warning them they have divulged a key. As long as only your public DTube key has been sent, you are free to disregard these messages.
Step 3: Giving us the information we need

- Paste the new public key into the form
- Provide us with your account name
Step 4: Wait for mainnet
During the account creation process for mainnet, your old key will be replaced with your new one - should you have performed all the actions correctly.
If there are any issues with the information provided, a member of the DTube team contact you.
