    yes i was inside the account but when it asked me to send i tried to send it to mine but ofcourse i never had a passphrase to enter..

    When you are inside an account, you have already entered a password. Did you manually type the password, or did you paste it?



  • Guys.... it's quite huge amount, 18K Burst.
    Curious to see the next story, will the owner be able to take it back? Or @Han-Solo can help him after 2 000 000 000 000 years?

    @rnahlawi I don't want to be rude. Give man some hope 🙂

    What a nice hopeless hope ... wanna cry when I read it.
    By the way, the wallet balance got nice digits of the amount ..... 18,181.82 Burst

    This is where it went to:
    Address: BURST-3EVJ-RUMP-EEVR-9J47P
    Txid: 10448866791785183229

    Buddy, how did you get that recipient address? Did you intend it to send to someone else, or you wanna send it to your own wallet?
    But wait, the address you mentioned 'should have gone' is your address right? Maybe you generated new address before sending that amount, and you also the only one who knows the passphrase of that address, and maybe "unluckily" you did not save that passphrase.

    Correct me if I'm wrong.

    That is exactly what I am trying to find out. Because if that is the case then there are three possible scenarios that I can think of. Qibucks wanted to log into the right account to see which ID he or she was going to send the coins from Poloniex to, but instead created a new account by

    1. manually typing the password and accidentally pressing a wrong key. Try looking at your real password and figure out if there is a key that is likely to be pressed wrong when typing it quickly. You could try writing it several times quickly in a notepad document, and see if your wrote something wrong. Maybe this is the password for your "new account".

    2. pasting the password, and accidentally including an extra space or two in front of or behind the password. Try using the same type of misspelled password with extra spaces to enter your new account.

    3. pasting what she though was the password, but which was instead some entirely different text she had copied after copying her password. Try remembering if you copied something else after your password and before you pasted into the password box.

    By the way, are you sure that @qibucks is a lady?

    Hope she will find the passphrase in her computer/wherever she saved it.

    lol, no I am not sure, but I think @chrispop wrote 'she' in another thread when referring to qibucks. @qibucks If you are not a lady, I apologize for insinuating that you are one! I though I had put 'he or she', but obviously I'm not drinking enough coffee today, I will go stand in the corner and drink some right away.

    Thanks for reminding me to my coffee, ... sh*t I forgot it, half cup remaining and it's already cold. I need to make a new hot one.



  • @bitko yes i am a she..thanks though everyone for trying..just sux that's all so a phantm got donated my BURST Oh well time to let this g..i will get more BURSTS..



  • @qibucks You're welcome. Did you take a look at my suggestions? I'm curious about how you managed to enter the wrong account, was it by typing your password manually and pressing the wrong key, or by pasting the wrong text?

    It's cool that you are a she by the way, I think we need more women in Burst!



  • im curious as well as to how you got the wrong address to send the burst. understanding that could make it possible to get the burst back.



  • @qibucks Hey there, could you please give us a hint about what happened, in relation to the last comment by @Gibsalot and I? 🙂 We need closure, hehe.



  • @Njcfamily31907 claimed or unclaimed doesn't change anything, you still need the Passphrase to be able to access it.



  • @Propagandalf I have no idea I just saw the address, copied it and sent the coins from POLO./.I tired everything to try and find it lol.. spaces, misspelling, the lt of my proper passphrase lol noooo idea how i got that addy haha never mind..I will get more bursts from the assets i will buy..,



  • @qibucks
    OK thanks for the info! Here are ten steps you can follow in order to be 100 % sure that you will never make a mistake again with a new account.

    1. Create a new account
    2. Copy your password somewhere safe (use a notepad text document, or write on a piece of paper)
    3. Paste your password in the next phase of the account creation
    4. Make note of your account ID (use a notepad text document, or write on a piece of paper)
    5. Save your password and account name using the built-in account manager in the All-in-one wallet
    6. Log out of your account
    7. Use the account manager to log in to your account
    8. Verify that your account ID is the same
    9. Fund your account with a faucet
    10. Make an outgoing transaction to register your account on the blockchain for security (edit account name for instance)

    If you follow these ten steps before funding your account, mining or whatever, you will always have access to the right account. People are still able to make mistakes when they send payments, but at least by doing this you know that you are in control of your own account, thus greatly reducing the failure rate.



  • @Propagandalf Thank you yes now my wallet has a name as well lol..thanks for the kind help..I love this community!



  • i have 6 accounts now , i keep a pen and paper logg of the info . only account with copy paste ability on the comp is my main mining wallet. i have had some fun with pass phrases lol. i like to take lyrics from 2 or more songs combine them .. then make some words have capitals and swap in #'s to replace some letters or even whole words. makes it realy hard to hack but can be easy to remember. with a system
