A week ago I discovered that all my IOTA is missing from my wallet here is the story:
So now the time arrived to update the info on my quest to regain my IOTAs.
First I updated my IOTA wallet, generated new addresses 130 times, also changed the nodes several times but nothing the balance still 0. Then I started to read about the snapshot(s) which happened several times in 22 of Sept. 24thof October, 28th of January and also last week. The most helpful article: https://medium.com/iota-demystified/help-my-iota-balance-is-zero-579b75f35f2c read it you can find a lot of answers there. I concluded that my IOTAs been taken into custody by the staff to protect me…nice! except if they do that wouldn’t be nicer if they notify me and everyone else affected and not just waiting us to get a heart attack when we find out that our IOTAs went missing? If you assume you are a victim of the IOTA foundations kindness and your addresses was moved to the IOTA foundation custody address you can go check it and make sure on the following link: https://gist.githubusercontent.com/cyclux/2bb05d873c4ec6115cad1d100263d489/raw/612a49e46091586957448f6606ea981ab18022e7/snapshot_validation_20171023.txt
copy, control F, paste …and I found all my missing (confiscated) IOTAs on the list! But my category was not mentioned in the article which is: curl_not_transitioned. I don’t know what to think of this category could not find any info. Anyway move on now the issue how to get them back!? To the Reclaim tool…I got ready with the old seed also with the new seed…pretty simple eventually I got “Proof transaction is pending” and pending and pending time sometimes you prioritize and reattach and again and you have to go to work or to sleep and you have to turn off you computer but as soon is possible you start again and only two days later “Proof transaction confirmed”. Great wrote down the address it gave me went to the new seed and receive the same address shows up and only a couple hours later confirmed…and still 0. F…ing ZERO.
Went back to check the custody (confiscated) address and everything is still there unchanged!
SO now what? Really WHAT???
In conclusion: IOTA aims for machine to machine communications…the future. How about to try just plain COMMUNICATIONs first like human to human or IOTA to human! If the future you about to build is unhuman, arrogant, top down like a dictatorship that’s not a good future and I don’t think that we should support it.
