So here I am returning from a week in the mines (40+ degrees, 70% humidity), sitting on a plane with my mask on, can’t sleep, just had a coffee, no internet. What is a guy meant to do. Start writing a blog of course.
Atomic Wallet was the recommended wallet to use in conjunction with Publish0x. Not because they were a good wallet but due to the generous referral program. We are also guilty of using the referral program for personal gain.
Publish0x runs another writing competition. At the very last minute I decided to enter the competition.
We had a small amount of ATOM, that had been sitting on Binance for a long time. Storing on the Nano S was way too complicated at the time, so it got put in the Too Hard Basket and was forgotten about.
Being a smart arse, I thought I could kill two birds with one stone. Transfer the ATOM from Binance to Atomic Wallet and stake it. Document the process and bingo I got my first entry in a writing competition.
Once we had the wallet, we soon found uses for it.
with multiple faucet Pipeflare and Global Hive accounts, always in need of a spare address or 2 to collect the ill gotten gains. To avoid detection you need seperate IP address, internet connection and wallet addresses - jury is still out on that one
somewhere to send the Publish0x tips - wrong move
In hindsight the answer was NO.
Ledger has made the process of creating ATOM wallet so easy
getting 112 free AWC tokens is not enough compensation for the head fck
Certainly would have been better off not having another wallet, but then you learn a lot more doing it the hard way.
Staking the ATOM was straight forward enough. Selected EverStake as our validator as this was the one we used on Exodus, where the bulk of the ATOM is stored.
Note - We need to keep the ATOM separate as part of estate planning.
An annoying feature of the Atomic Wallet, is the wallet does not record all the transactions associated with that ATOM address. Makes it impossible to reconcile how they arrive at the balance without using an explorer to view the transactions on the blockchain. My OCD part of me needs to keep extensive records, so I find this very frustrating not having access to all the data. I never did find out why Atomic Wallet does not have all the transactions but it is a red flag 🚩 🚩
Calls into question
competency of the devs who created the wallet
was it just an oversight
is it too hard
is there a cost associated
I have only Exodus Wallet as a comparison, so excuse me if you feel I am being too harsh
on Atomic Wallet. Exodus is the standard we gauge things by.
Next hiccup is probably not Atomic Wallets fault but a feature of Cosmos staking. But worth mentioning as a caution to players.
Do Not stake all the available ATOM. Otherwise you will not be able to do anything. Claim, Unstake etc, as you need enough available funds to cover the transaction fees. Your funds are literally frozen, until you deposit some more ATOM.
I won't reproduce all the correspondence but was rather concerned with their suggested solution.
is this a common problem and this is the recommended fix?
if it is a common problem, why is it still a problem?
if not are you just guessing?
what happens if it doesn't work and I have just deleted the old wallet? The answer is the ATOM is lost forever?
Hence my question
"Are you suggesting there is a fault with the Atomic Wallet?
Now they refused to directly answer the question. But eventually after insisting they answer the question
"Unfortunately, we're unable to answer to it being 100% sure."
Which is an admission there is a fault with the Atomic Wallet and they are guessing. 🚩 🚩
That is a far as I have got so far. Time to write a blog, collect my thoughts before I continue the battle with support. Eventually our problem will get passed onto some one with a grasp of the technical issues. Not just parroting the standard replies. But that is standard whether you are dealing with a Telco, exchange or Atomic Wallet. Good Support is like hens teeth, but is out there. It is always a good sign when you find it. If they have bothered to invest in customer support there is a good chance the rest is also been done properly.
Once the ATOM is recovered or lost for ever. Then it is just a matter of stopping the faucet accounts and sending the ZEC to cold storage. Other than the fee being 160 times a single input transaction, at least there is enough to cover the fee. That subject was covered under
All that should be left is the dust, on the blockchain for eternity.
0.27 XTZ unavailable, blockchain requirement to avoid spam attacks
0.000744 BNB, doesn't have facility to take all and take fee out of that. You have to get amount right but the fee keeps changing. So you either can't transact or end up with dust. I will give Atomic Wallet the benefit of the doubt that is a blockchain issue.
