2 min read

A retired truck driver has experienced a really stressful situation that can happen to any of us if we don’t pay attention to passwords and crypto accounts. The pensioner already mentioned managed to block the wallet, which contained 10 million DOGE worth $ 3 million.

The rescue for DOGE came on time

It seems that in the time of the hype around cryptocurrencies, companies that deal with password recovery will have a lot of work to do. One such company helped a pensioner restore his wallet, which made him a millionaire. The company managed an almost impossible thing. They basically restored a six-year-old wallet. This is KeychainX. The pensioner stated that at the time he bought DOGE, his investment was at a level 1,500 USD.

The PIN code for the Android pensioner’s wallet contained 12 digits. According to KeychainX itself, they did a miracle. They asked the pensioner for his year of birth, according to which they analyzed the wallet to assess encryption.

A moment with bated breath

However, the most difficult thing came after the unlocking itself, when it was necessary to ensure a safe transfer of funds. According to the company’s initial estimates, this should take several days. And then came the stressful moment when the company tested the relocation of a small transaction, which managed to get into the safe zone.

Robert Rhodin, CEO of KeychainX, said:

“Losing a PIN to your wallet is not a bad thing. If you manage to unlock it after years, it can change your life. This time it happened. “

Help for investors

KeychainX first began operations in 2017. It specializes in recovering lost cryptocurrencies from mobile, hardware and software wallets. It has renewed more than 100 wallets in the last six months. It focuses mainly on the recovery of BTC and ETH, which have simply been lost.

“It is believed that 20% of Bitcoins are lost forever. However, we believe that these Bitcoins are just waiting to be discovered. ”
