9 April, a young man named Thomas from the Swiss city of Lucerne as usual went shopping in the supermarket. Having bought all necessary, Thomas was horrified to find that lost package, which was with him after a visit to the Bank.
The worst thing about this story is that the contents of the package was two hardware wallet cryptocurrency, which kept cryptocurrency worth about 800 000 francs.
The young man immediately wrote a statement to the police and also posted the ads, which promises the finder a reward of 40 000 francs. According to Thomas, the third-party person is not able to take possession of the cryptocurrency, so 5% of the lost is a worthy compensation.
Thomas assures that stores its hardware wallets in a jar and takes them twice a year to perform the necessary operations with cryptocurrency. He’s not sure if he left the package containing the device and Keepkey Ledger Nano’s in my car or just forgotten somewhere in a supermarket.
However, he lost the storage device and does not have access to backups, because it does not have the necessary codes.
Thomas was fascinated by the cryptocurrency in the beginning of 2017, when invested 50,000 francs in Neos. After a year its capital was increased to 800 000, due to growth in the prices of the token. Despite the loss, Thomas T. says that still believes in digital currencies and “sees in them great potential.”
