I not too long ago labored with a shopper who unintentionally despatched a non-ERC20 coin to an Ethereum deal with; particularly, it was “Theta”. This coin was an ERC20 token till 2 years in the past when it was moved to its native blockchain – sadly the builders stored the Ethereum public deal with format, so now most wallets and exchanges is not going to throw an error if THETA is being withdrawn to an ETH deal with.
Being in possession of the personal key and seed, is there any approach of retrieving the coin from the deal with? THIS methodology was tried, however with out success. If the personal key or seed is used to log right into a Theta pockets, the pockets worth exhibits 0 Theta (trying up the general public key, nonetheless, exhibits the funds within the deal with).
I do know this isn’t an issue brought on by Ethereum, however perhaps somebody right here has one other concept of how this could possibly be resolved. I suggested my shopper to additionally contact the THETA workforce straight.
