RE: Hive Tour Update - Account creation and Account Recovery steps

avatar

You are viewing a single comment's thread:

Maybe add to the description that changing the recovery account takes 30 days to be effective, and I am not 100% but I had the impression that while is not effective, if the user changes keys, the process will cancel, so I always do it after changing keys (in case I need it).

If I had another Hive account I can use, I would have tested changing its private keys while its recovery account is being changed. 🤔

Yeah... I have done it multiple times but I can't recall. I can create an account for you to play with if you want... let me know the account name and I can send you the password (which has access to all keys) via encrypted memo to this account you are replying from.

Thanks for your offer! 😀 How much are you going to charge for it? 🤔For creating a Hive account, BlockTrades charges 4.1 HIVE, BDVoter charges 3.0 HIVE, while Ecency charges 0 HIVE (but #Ecency's service is subject to availability). 🕵️‍♂️

I would like to have a Hive account with username @savvytester for testing purposes. 😅 I will immediately tell you what happens if I change its private keys while the process of changing the recovery account is still ongoing. 😀

Anyway, have you tried to help recovering another account (or much less likely, recovering your own account)? 🤔 I would like to try that on the testing account too after 30 days. 😁

Account created... use your memo key to decrypt and you should have all keys:

this account does not have any delegated power... so if you need RC to do actions, you can delegate some HP to your new account... like 10 should be more than enough to start.. to make it work.

Any questions let me know. But remember to change your keys. By default, I am your recovery account, but you can change that.

I know about the need to delegate Resource Credits to new accounts, changing the private keys once I obtain them, and setting the recovery account. 😀 I just want to test some things myself on a test account. 😅

I would inform you as soon as I have a question regarding the test account! 😅 Thanks again for the account you spend an Account Creation Token for! 😁

No worries mate. If you have any friends that would like to try HIVE, don't forget to call them in and let them know that is very easy for anyone to get a free account.

Some of my real-world friends don't want to provide their phone number to register to any online website (such as the #HiveOnboard service for joining Hive "free"), for fear of "spammers" and "prank callers". 🤔

Ask them to call me then... via the millions of social media options that exist! =)

Many of them use only one or two social media platforms, and most of those users barely reply to posts and personal messages on those platforms. 😐

yeah... maybe you need to understand what would captivate their attention first. Can't generalize interest anywhere these days.

When my post or message would potentially make them earn money, they suddenly become "no longer busy". 🤔😐

Yeah... I know that kind of deal. One day I will show them why I stoped messaging them.

You reminded me of a lot of people who do just that to me. 😯 Anyway, when I showed D.Buzz to some of them and how it differs from popular social media platforms, they quickly told me that

Not sure if we are within the same lines of thought...

The reason for stopping messaging is not because of adoption or lack of it... but instead because people sometimes refuse to learn just because they have preferred method. Hence don’t see the full picture of things.

I just find it too easy to talk to people, despite their different way of thinking, if I offer them something in return for their time. 😐 The words "difficult", "busy" and "don't know" disappear from their vocabulary if they are promised something that will benefit them (especially money). ☹️

I have learned that most of them will never join Hive unless I offer them a "sign-up bonus" (and being active here is a different thing) - or maybe I'm just not trying hard enough to convince them to join Hive. 😐

yeah, I know what you mean... it happens not just with HIVE, unfortunately. People sometimes also forget that the reason for the benefit might not be worth the reason they think is the benefit in the first place.

I must be a rarity because I do most of what I do for pleasure... because I just enjoy discovering about stuff. And over time I have learned that no one can give me what I most enjoy... time! =) Hence, money shagging does not often work with me. I prefer "information" as form of money... 😎

This is probably the longest thread I have seen LOL

I just tried to change the private keys of my new testing account @savvytester while there is an recovery account change underway. 🤔 My change of private keys succeeded without affecting or being affected by the recovery account change! 😅

The next thing I would try is to recover the account (resetting the private keys) after the recovery account has changed to mine! 😁
