Lost, stolen, or damaged phone : Ethos
Modified on: Fri, 31 Aug, 2018 at 12:15 PM What if someone steals my phone What if I drop it in the toilet?  These are common questions and valid concerns! But rest assured, your Smart Keys will be protected by a PIN + biometric data (optional) and stored in the cryptographic section of the phone.  Okay, so my keys are safe... but I dropped my phone into the toilet and then it was stolen! Is my wallet gone forever No! When you first create your wallet you are given a 24-word phrase, your Smart Key. It is the responsibility of the wallet holder to document the Smart Key words and store that in a safe place, this is made clear to the customer when they first create their wallet. If your phone dies or disappears, you can easily regenerate your wallet and private keys on a new device by using the seed! 

Smart Keys : Ethos
Modified on: Fri, 13 Jul, 2018 at 1:20 PM A Smart Key is a single key that provides access to all of your wallets. The Smart Key is always held by the user and is protected by a backup key that can be written down and stored as a paper wallet. Aside from your paper copy, your Smart Key is stored in the cryptographic section of your phone and protected by: your phone's lockscreen pin/passphrase; your Universal Wallet pin; and optionally another layer of biometric authentication. Your smart key will never touch the internet and is not stored by Ethos. Ethos cannot authorize or spend any of your funds without your Smart Key. Your Smart Key is tied to your password and your backup key so that you always have secure access to your funds wherever you go.

This small fee is awarded to miners as compensation for the computational resources they provide the network to process the transaction. Did you find it helpful Yes No

Does Ethos have a copy of my private keys? : Ethos
Modified on: Mon, 4 Jun, 2018 at 4:26 PM No, Ethos does not have a copy of your private keys. When you generate a wallet, there is a handshake with our server that sends a copy of the extended public key to us. As you may know, you can create seemingly infinite private and public key pairs when you hold the SmartKey. The extended public key stored by Ethos allows us to generate public addresses, track wallet balances, and support airdrops. This also allows us to tie your SmartKey to your Ethos account and prevent bad actors from using your SmartKey on another Ethos account. *The extended public key does NOT allow Ethos control of your assets. You always maintain full custody of your assets.*
