RE: Hive: Account Management System

in LeoFinance3 months ago (edited)

When you get past the initial hurdle of using keys and a key manager (eg. Hive Keychain) + back up, it's actually quite easy and safe. The mindset shift is a hurdle, but once we're past it we are in a better place.

Has any major Steem/Hive user that we know of ever lost their keys? I know plenty of small accounts who registered and then forgot about it, to later not recover/remember, but I'm not aware of any large investor or long time Steem/Hive user doing so that we know of.

Agreed. It is not brain surgery. Most can get it with a bit of concentration and it is well worth the time.

I am not sure large accounts. As stated above, if one invests a bunch of money, there is the likelihood that person will be very smart with the keys. It is likelier the smaller accounts.

The comment just above this one mentioned losing the keys.
