Which i found from Blockchain tracing the transactions…Is there any way for me to identify which exchange this address belongs to ? , so i can reach out to them and see if my tokens can be recovered?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

It was my mistake to store the seed phrase in an online storage service without any encryption. Lessons learned.

Thanks for sharing how the seed could be taken by someone else. Yes, writing down on a paper is the best way. Since you dont need to recover a wallet so often.

Hello, It seems that I experienced the same issue at Yoroi wallet. I delegated 54K+ adas since february and I had 400 app. ada’s reward in my balance. Today the reward is “zero”, as I would widthrawed them.
It is very disappointing to deal with this matter, I use 2FA and Yubikey in another exchanges and this wallet does not work with of them…
I’ve already contacted to support of Yoroi, hopefully they could have an explanation or solution, if not I´d have to quit.

Always in a piece of paper…never in the pc. Never been disclosed to any other party.
Pls help me out with this matter, and tell me if a hacker has done it, the full balance is in risk ?


And NOW my adas reward are back again!!

Could you tell me what happened pls? … Today the 451,64 adas are displayed in my account as rewards granted so far.
Looking forward your comments.

there was an issue with Yoroi itself

it is a good practice to check the balance with the latest receiving address in explorer.cardano.org

Hi, thanks for sharing your unpleasant experience. I am experiencing similar case from my Yoroi Wallet while staking in Pilot Pool. I am still waiting for the customer support’s response but there was in-wallet transaction before the ADA was sent to unauthorized address.

What is the best way to resolve this issue?

@handiman what’s your address, we can take a look at the blockchain to see what the in-wallet transaction was about.

Regarding the funds sent to an unauthorized address, most probably nothing can be done to retrieve them :neutral_face: Check for other options like if it is possible to report a theft to the authorities etc…


Btw I was staking in Pilot Pool. Any chance of hacker takung that route?
