the same thing happened to me today
Ok, but what applications did u installed?
Daedalus Wallet, Google Play
Here is the “mistake”. That app sent ur seesd words to the hacker… the app was reported to be a scam!
hey, my ADA also got hacked and stolen, but from my atomic wallet. nothing no one can do unfortunately…
Never ever share you seed with anyone. Also purchase hardware wallet and add pass phrase to 24 word seed to make it more secure
Downloaded Daedalus wallet from this website: https://daedaluswallet.io/
In app it links me to this android App to register for voting: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=io.iohk.vitvoting
If I press [Register to vote], I’m getting the following error message
Is all of the above legitimate?
Yes, those are legit. Like the error states, hardware wallets are not supported for voting yet. You’ll need to use a software wallet to register to vote for now.
I tried using Yoroi browser extension, but it does not recognise my Ledger. Any suggestions to troubleshot that, or a different software wallet to use?
You can use yoroi or daedalus, but without ledger. It’s your discretion regarding if you want to go through that process because of the security aspect. If you do, you’ll need at least 3000 ada in the new software only wallet.
Thanks for the advice, but I think I’ll pass. Don’t want to end up hacked like the OP. I don’t think the voting functionality has been well thought through.
Looking forward to the next vote being on implementing voting for hardware wallet users.
Hi, I just find out that my ADA have been stolen also. I did the same stupid mistake to install Google App Daedalus Wallet which is fake! That´s a nice start in crypto world my god! The worst that I´m more sad not be involved anymore in Cardano project then to have been stolen. Let´s try to forget about that quickly and this is a good lesson on how to be even more carefull in the future!!!
