Tell HN: I came up with an interesting way to do decentralized account recovery


Thought I'd share this with the HN community.

Link to the Escrovery paper: https://github.com/pickhardt/escrovery/blob/master/escrovery...

I came up with an interesting way to do totally decentralized account recovery. Why might this be useful? Suppose you have some account on Bitcoin, Ethereum, etc and you lose your secret key. Worse, you also lose (or never had) any way to recover it.

Escrovery gives you a way to recover it, and without simply using a centralized service like Coinbase or needing secret shares from k of n friends. This could also be used as a recovery method with self-sovereign identities.

The way it works it using escrowed payments to deter malicious recovery attempts. Any user may make an Escrovery challenge to recover any account by first placing an amount of money in escrow. If the original account owner responds to the challenge in a certain amount of time, they earn the escrow. Otherwise, the challenger takes ownership of the account and recovers their escrow.

The main limitation is that it requires users to be regularly active in checking for challenges to their account. For some use cases, this would be fine. For others, perhaps it wouldn't work.

Months ago, YouTube quietly gave creators the ability to alter posted videos. YouTube should give users a way of knowing if a video has been edited.

Intellectual property laws of today are largely influenced by regulations created more than a hundred years ago in Europe. But there is one country in the world where IP is handled in a radically different manner as a result of the internet age: China. What can we learn from China in this age of innovation? This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at [2]https://www.ted.com/tedx
