We need a new key revcovery method

in utopian-io •  8 months ago

So I have finally been locked out of my steem account because it was more than likely hacked.. This is very worrisome for me because steem is my favorite asset and it has been so good to me until now.

If you are reading this and haven't learned how to successfully store your keys away in the safest possible way then bookmark this and come back once you have learned the proper technique on storing keys.

So what can we do to prevent this from happening in the future ? Since this is not a tutorial on storing keys, I will make a few suggestions on how we can recover keys for myself as well as others who may be in the same situation.

Suggestions

  • Locked Accounts for those who are holding long term that can only be accessed through a large number of questions the user is asked when obtaining a steem account ( Not personal but inherently tricky questions only the creator of the account could confirm. )

  • A certain measure of data that verifies the user through a 24 hr web search by the user, monitored by a algorithmic bot that can analyze the data that user transferred and received during the time period.

  • eg)* User jumps onto 100 different web pages also filling out some forms along the way about the sites that he is visiting because these sites were used before his account creation, signifying that only he have made the account. proof of data

  • LifeKeys that track the user instead of the user tracking his keys.. The longer you live the stronger your seed grows verifying the user his life of work.

I wish I would have spent more time learning about the code instead of worrying about meaning. Cryptographic messages are only as valid as the user until the message becomes the user .

Hey @christoryan, I am writing to you and many other people who I have noticed for being very active and interested in humorous/sarcastic posts. I am not writing and begging for following me, but I want to share with you two of my other accounts, @krvsada and @tuzlasada , where I post funny GIF memes on daily basis (5 on each). Since I really want to improve and get amongst the best 'humorous 'steemians’ on this platform, I would love if you could sometimes drop to any of my meme accounts, enjoy in shared content, and possibly (the most appreciated) evaluate my work. I promise that I will be fully engaged with single one of your comments since this is something which inspires me and makes my days better. Furthermore, if you decide to keep up with my account, and if you decide to add my accounts to your steem voter account, I will assure to connect additional 55+ young accounts to automatically upvote your account's (and anyone else's) posts. All of them are my friends and their accounts can not give you lots of 'rewards', but can easier get you to the HOT section and possibly increase your account visits. That would be the smallest thing that I could give as a return for your engagement with you. Please help me to get a rise in this section on this platform. All the best, @keyss.

I agree that key is too long to remember and way too long to write.

MEMORIZE IT NOW!!! LOL

Got my account back and I will be writing a log of how it happened so stay tuned..

·

Glad to hear that! Yes, it would be good to hear your story. Who knows how many more people already did, or will get locked out. It's great that you were able to restore your account, hopefully got your funds intact as well.

Thank you and I will be releasing a story very soon that involves some very sensitive and blockchain changing information that will hopefully lead to better security.. :D Namaste

One more thing, seems like you’re a good person to ask. I’m still new here, is there a way to turn me current ‘password’ which is my private keys into just a typical memorized password? For all I know, that isn’t a good ide. Thanks for the help!

Edit - I didn’t mean to send this to myself. See what I mean?? Ya I need some assistance ‘round here. Ha!

What you can do is go into https://busy.org or https://utopian.io and add your active or posting priv key into those apps.. Then use them and lock up your steemit account with the master password
