True stories of lost access​

$1Bn Inaccessible

On April 16, 2018, Matthew Mellon of the Mellon banking fortune died.

To his grave, he also took the location of the keys to a rather large amount of Ripple coin (XRP), another popular type of cryptocurrency.

Before his death he held an estimated $1 billion in Ripple, but without the keys none of the Ripple coin can be accessed

Priceless rubbish

James Howells, a cryptocurrency miner in the early days of Bitcoin gathered 7,500 Bitcoins stored on a hard drive.

In 2013 he accidentally threw the hard drive away, along with access to his Bitcoins. The keys, along with all his other trash, ended up at a local dump.

In 2017 at the peak of Bitcoin value, his buried Bitcoin treasure would have been worth around $150,000,000.

$135m taken to the grave

In December 2018, Gerald Cotton, CEO of QuadrigaCX, Canada’s largest cryptocurrency exchange died unexpectedly.

Unfortunately for QuadrigaCX’s customers, Mr. Cotton was the only person who was able to access the customer private keys.

As a result over US$135M in customer funds held in safe keeping was deemed inaccessible, locked on the blockchain forever more.

FAQ

What is the Deposit Protection Guarantee?​

The Coincover Deposit Protection Guarantee for cryptocurrency protects customers when authorised Cryptocurrency services and firms fail, and they lose access to their cryptocurrency. The scheme ensures that customers will always be able to recover their funds in the event of lost access.

Coincover will recover the funds to a new wallet of the customers choosing.

When can I claim on the Deposit Protection Guarantee?​

In the event that a business with Coincover Deposit Protection Guarantee ceases operations due to business failure, catastrophic systems failure, or catastrophic data loss that results in its customers being permanently unable to access funds in their wallets, the Deposit Guarantee scheme will access and recover funds on their customers behalf.

What happens if I need to claim on the Deposit Protection Guarantee?​

In the event that a business with Coincover Deposit Protection Guarantee ceases operations as described above, Coincover will manage the recovery and movement of funds to another service provider or alternative wallet for any customer who can no longer access their wallets and funds.

Customers will be provided with the relevant contact details following the incident. For security purposes, recovery will only take place once the customer passes full ID verification checks and is confirmed as the wallet holder.

How do I know if a business is protected by the Coincover Deposit Protection Guarantee?​

Businesses with Coincover Deposit Protection Guarantee will show on their website that they are protected by displaying the Coincover deposit protection logo. Customers can and should also check the status of the deposit protection guarantee at the Coincover website where the certificate of coverage will be stored for public viewing.

How do I know if my wallet is protected?​

In the majority of cases where a business displays on site that its customers have Deposit Guarantee, the customer is protected automatically when they create an account and receive confirmation that their funds are protected by Coincover Deposit Protection Guarantee. If you are not sure or didn’t receive a confirmation, please always check with your provider. You can also check the status of any company offering the Coincover Deposit Protection Guarantee at coincover.com.

Can I use the Deposit Protection Guarantee if I have lost access myself?​

Coincover is able to recover funds should a customer lose access to their wallet. In the case the customer loses access they should first contact the company they are doing business with and follow the fund recovery process.

How long does a Deposit Guarantee recovery take?​

Coincover is committed to recovering your funds as quickly as possible. However, each customer recovering their funds must pass full ID verification checks and be confirmed as the wallet holder before the recovery can take place and must be processed individually. Typically a standard fund recovery will take 7 days from the recovery request.

However, in the event that a business with Coincover Deposit Protection Guarantee ceases operations and funds become inaccessible, this will result in large volumes to process and is likely to take longer. If this is the case, we will keep all customers informed of the progress of recoveries.

What is secure key storage?​

Secure key storage is the way we ensure you never lose access to your funds by creating and holding an emergency backup key to each of your wallets offline.

When you create a new wallet with one of our partners with Coincover Deposit Protection Guarantee, a key pair is requested from us for your new wallet.

The public portion of the key is allocated to your new wallet. The private backup key is stored by Coincover offline with zero network exposure. It is fully encrypted, sharded and held in grade A free-standing six-sided vaults in multiple geographically dispersed locations in the United Kingdom.

Each vault is protected by multi-party access control with a minimum of three Coincover personnel in attendance for every recovery and verification.

What is the fund recovery process?​

Our first priority is the security of your funds. We will always confirm your identity before we initiate the recovery process to be sure we are recovering the funds for the owner. To ensure total transparency, we will ensure that you are kept informed on progress and are notified as soon as your funds have been recovered.

Step 1: The first step in the process is for us to confirm your ID and verify ownership of the wallet confirmed.

Step 2: We will help you to create a new wallet to hold the recovered funds.

Step 3: We confirm the funds have been recovered to your new wallet.

What are the Coincover Deposit Protection Guarantee recovery requirements?​

All customers must have their Identity validated and ownership of funds confirmed before a recovery can take place. This will be checked when a customer requests a recovery.

Where is Coincover Deposit Protection Guarantee available?​

Coincover Deposit Protection Guarantee is available to businesses globally with the exception of countries or jurisdictions prohibited by the UK or USA governments.
