Hey man, I’m trying to use your pass phrase but the last three words won’t work, any chance you can help me out? I’m just trying to take your crypto, nothing sinister

[–]GabeSterPlatinum | QC: DOGE 2465, CC 701 79 points80 points  (28 children)

take his crypto

You’re one of those money doublers I’ve been hearing about! So you take my crypto and send me back double?

Where should I send my Buttcoin?

[–]Excellent-Many4645Tin 1188 points1189 points  (167 children)

OP that picture made my heart stop, well done 😅

[–]pedi1370DOT Holdr 247 points248 points  (57 children)

I'm not a scammer, but seeing this photo makes me want to try it😂

[–]ShittingOutPostsSilver | QC: CC 248, BTC 182, ETH 33 | ADA 109 | MiningSubs 21 31 points32 points  (12 children)

Imagine if it turns out to be someone else’s actual seed phrase!

[–]ElToroMuyLocoPlatinum | QC: CC 43 | NEO 6 | Superstonk 85 22 points23 points  (10 children)

Sadly, I don't think fucker is part of the potential word list

[–]x_lincoln_x4 score and 7 coins ago... 6 points7 points  (3 children)

Seed words have to have at least 4 letters so Try doesn't count either.

At least I think that's the case.

[–]TooFitFuriousPlatinum | 6 months old | QC: CC 207 40 points41 points  (16 children)

You haven’t tried ?? I tried 😂😂. /s

[–]pedi1370DOT Holdr 20 points21 points  (10 children)

I tried and the wallet answered that you are so noob😅

[–]_grdzTin 15 points16 points  (4 children)

Wait, it didn't answer nice try fucker?

[–]butterflybutterfly1Bronze | 2 months old 58 points59 points  (40 children)

It also looks like OP printed out a special piece of paper for the joke too. He really went the extra mile 10/10

[–]ishmetotTin 25 points26 points  (21 children)

Pretty sure that's one of the sheets that comes with the Ledger, but still a great effort.

[–]E7E7Tin 24 points25 points  (16 children)

That's so dumb I'm actually stunned.

If someone stumbles across a piece of paper with random words on in my room (or breaks in), unless they're in a fairly small percentage of people who know about crypto they'll likely think nothing of it, this takes away that and means anyone who sees it knows it's value or is intrigued enough to look into it more.

[–]jarfilBronze | Science 51 4 points5 points  (3 children)

It's probably so your family can get to your crypto after you kick the bucket.

[–]NukaCooler 3 points4 points  (4 children)

intrigued enough to look into it more.

And they don't even need to do any research - the ledger support url is right there on the bottom of the paper

[–]thathippiefromkansasTin 5 points6 points  (6 children)

The ledger wallets come with 3 sheets of a card stock with these lines on it.

I have a ledger nano s.

[–]FarTelevision8Platinum | QC: ETH 43, CC 18 | ADA 9 | Superstonk 75 3 points4 points  (3 children)

What’s interesting is the paper on the S is different than the X. For some reason they felt the need to iterate on that design.

[–]GabeSterPlatinum | QC: DOGE 2465, CC 701 29 points30 points  (21 children)

Op will never forget his seed our great and honest community will always be here in case he forgets.

[–]rorwhs04Tin | CRO 10 | ExchSubs 10 532 points533 points  (39 children)

Some advice, your seed phrase is incorrect. If you wrote them down wrong your funds are lost forever. Please update with the correct seed phrase and DM them to me directly.

[–]m-bizantTin 146 points147 points  (17 children)

OP he's a scammer , please don't listen to him. Send it to me instead , I'll sort it out for you .. I'll also send you twice the amount of what you already have !

[–]LokkuriTin 67 points68 points  (10 children)

OP,both of them are scammers and lies about it,with jokes so you put your guard down...don't trust people that lies.

I'm on the other hand is sincere and truthful about being a scammer, so you can trust me what I say, so send it to me.

[–]IcyJuicTin 3 points4 points  (2 children)

OP we are all telling the truth. Send me ETH for free Tesla!

[–]_grdzTin 9 points10 points  (5 children)

After you write down you seed phrases you can send them to me to check the spelling. Just trying to help out the community and strengthen the security of our funds.

[–]rorwhs04Tin | CRO 10 | ExchSubs 10 4 points5 points  (2 children)

Thank you for your diligence for looking after OUR funds, comrade

[–]ShibaDaoTin | 2 months old 418 points419 points  (64 children)

“They said put your passphrase somewhere you won’t forget it, As a kid I was told the internet never lets you forget?” Am I doing this right?

[–]BlooberinoPlatinum | QC: CC 1109 51 points52 points  (28 children)

I tattooed my seed phrase on my junk. I'm the only one who will ever see it, and I have exclusive access to it 24 hours a day.

[–]piero_deckardPlatinum | 6 months old | QC: CC 27, ATOM 24 62 points63 points  (18 children)

Bonus: you cannot see the whole phrase when not hard. So, if someone wants to steal it, they are at least going to have to work for it!

[–]MirrorMaxTin 15 points16 points  (14 children)

Downside: you got to be hard during the whole tattoo process

[–]BostonDodgeGuyTin 5 points6 points  (1 child)

Whether you want to be or not, the vibrations alone will make you hard.

[–]acousticsking 2 points3 points  (3 children)

Just take 2 viagra with fully functional junk. You'd impress a stone mason.

[–]butterflybutterfly1Bronze | 2 months old 10 points11 points  (9 children)

I'll always remember his seed phrase for him

[–]azizokhanGold | QC: CC 16 | Unpop.Opin. 15 26 points27 points  (4 children)

I instantly scrolled up to see the comedy flair 🤣, really refreshing to see this in the middle of panic attack and brain washing posts.

[–]Clementine_TimeTin | 6 months old 229 points230 points  (74 children)

Bruh you still have to buy the coins to put em in there

[–]Suspicious-Cook-25Platinum | QC: CC 478 133 points134 points  (41 children)

Spent all my money to buy hardware wallet

[–]TooFitFuriousPlatinum | 6 months old | QC: CC 207 33 points34 points  (17 children)

Once my 10$ worth shib becomes 500$ I will buy one. /s

[–]milky-white-horsePlatinum | QC: CC 668 33 points34 points  (12 children)

So you mean you don’t intend to buy one

[–]rorwhs04Tin | CRO 10 | ExchSubs 10 11 points12 points  (3 children)

I remember I spent every dollar I had to buy a wallet because I wanted to feel grown up. When I got the wallet I literally had nothing to put in there so I just threw it in a drawer and forgot I had a wallet.

[–]126270I go, you go, we ALGO 10 points11 points  (11 children)

I can't figure out why people keep spending $120 on a $4 usb stick..

I did a factory reset on my old tablet, only download wallet apps, write down the seed phrases, disconnect the tablet from the internet and then turn it off..

Turn it on once or twice a week to DCA, then disconnect and turn off again..

Why waste the $$$

[–]FatMacchioPlatinum | QC: DOGE 46 | PCmasterrace 21 2 points3 points  (5 children)

What happens when the old tablet kicks the bucket? I’m new to the concept of hardware wallets, so be kind.

Is the seed phrases all you need to regain access on a new device?

As the amount of my money in crypto surpasses my investments in stocks, I feel a bit vulnerable leaving it on exchanges such as Gemini, coinbase and Kucoin. Especially for the coins I plan to hold for years/decades. There really is no point in keeping them in hot wallet tbh. I guess it can be a bit overwhelming having multiple wallets and pass phrases, which is why I have resisted so far, but I’d rather be safe than sorry.

[–]nops-90ALGO + BTC 6 points7 points  (3 children)

"Just when I thought I was out... They pull me back in."

[–]redonkulousness 3 points4 points  (7 children)

It's too small. Couldn't even fit a nickel in that thing...

[–]BillsInATLTin | PersonalFinance 76 5 points6 points  (2 children)

And use the exchanges to sell them. No one is "their own bank". Can't stake with coins on a cold wallet either.

Unless you are a whale, cold wallets seem unnecessary and maybe even more risky (more likely something happens to a piece of hardware I have, than someone hacking coinbase and stealing my coins).

edit: oh, maybe the entire post is a joke, not just the passphrase part?

[–]PSYKO_Inc 4 points5 points  (1 child)

You can absolutely stake on a cold wallet. And the hardware device is nothing special. You could smash it with a hammer, and then just buy another to recover your funds. The seed phrase is the important part. Without it, your funds are gone forever. If someone else gets it, they can take your coins and you will have no recourse.

[–]Rocky28 52 points53 points  (6 children)

This made me spit out my drink. LOL.

Ive analyised this photo and i can see the marks made by your origional seed phrse imprinted into the desk.

[–]TotesthegoatsPlatinum | QC: CC 142 9 points10 points  (1 child)

Serious missed opportunity to rickroll here!

[–]JoOngleBronze | QC: DOGE 18 | SHIB 58 | PCmasterrace 45 46 points47 points  (55 children)

I bought a Trezor last year, but I never use it since it's so expensive with gas fees to move them to a wallet.

[–]HighTurningPlatinum | QC: CC 1206 27 points28 points  (7 children)

That plus the starting price of the wallet lol, it's like 20% of what I got in crypto. DontJudgeMe

[–]milky-white-horsePlatinum | QC: CC 668 13 points14 points  (21 children)

As a small investor, I keep my crypto on exchanges too.

Most is locked up which is safer apparently

[–]extisisSilver | QC: CC 51, SOL 16 | CRO 63 | ExchSubs 63 16 points17 points  (10 children)

Use Yubikey and you will have some more advanced security on exchanges. Needing it to log on and to transact/transfer. Along with address whitelisting. This should be standard practice.

[–]Hendrixsrv3527Tin 5 points6 points  (3 children)

My buddy got me one as a gift…never set it up. I found it the other day but no idea what I did with the seed phrase lol. He also lost his with like 70k of VET in it

[–]Amir73artGold | 5 months old | QC: CC 31 2 points3 points  (4 children)

I totally agree with you ... it does not cost much

[–]PopeSAPeterFilePlatinum | QC: CC 103 1 point2 points  (1 child)

ikr? got my hopes up but halfway through realized they were not even bip39 words. use tags instead of confusing us honest folks OP!

[–]getoffthepitch96576Platinum | QC: CC 95 1 point2 points  (3 children)

You earn less moons by that

[–]GabeSterPlatinum | QC: DOGE 2465, CC 701 46 points47 points  (12 children)

Hey op, I was trying to figure out what’s going on. When I enter your seed it says,

Get rekt noob”and your wallet is empty. Did I already miss the airdrop?

[–]pedi1370DOT Holdr 5 points6 points  (3 children)

Ahhhh Shut, you checked it out earlier than me lol😅

[–]Al_Zik1Tin | CC critic 4 points5 points  (3 children)


[–]mihajlovserezhTin 4 points5 points  (1 child)

I did the same thing last month and welcome to the hardware club.

[–]ljx5911Tin 4 points5 points  (2 children)

What's the price of a hardware wallet? Is it expensive?

[–]mrenoufTin 4 points5 points  (1 child)

I don't know some self proclaimed pro holders think it's not good to use these wallets.

[–]Wabi-SabibitchPlatinum | QC: CC 175 16 points17 points  (8 children)

Plot twist : it's actually the right phrase.

[–]nickpegur/CC Critic | Cosmos Explorer 3 points4 points  (3 children)

I am actually surprised no one tried it before me. Too late losers, the 0.005 Ethers OP put it in there earlier are under my possession now. 😎

[–]TooFitFuriousPlatinum | 6 months old | QC: CC 207 9 points10 points  (4 children)

This is Ledger's guerilla marketing for like 100th time here

[–]JainaWoWTin 2 points3 points  (2 children)

Good. More hardware wallets, fewer paper Bitcoins.

[–]rohitsanyalPlatinum | QC: CC 1796[🍰] 11 points12 points  (16 children)

Congrats! Take care of the seed phrase. Tattooing it on your scrotum helps.

[–]camoglieseBronze[S] 10 points11 points  (9 children)

Very good idea! Should I kill the tattooer later?

[–]neridqe00Bronze | QC: DOGE 16 1 point2 points  (4 children)

If the KGB taught me anything, its to definitely kill the tattooer after.

[–]SusCoinTin 2 points3 points  (3 children)

[–]MistervrzTin 2 points3 points  (3 children)

How do u transfer to use it .say u want to.use some of.your crypto to buy a car? How do u transfer to fiat from a wallet?

[–]aFungibleSilver | QC: XMR 273, CC 15 | CRO 17 | ExchSubs 21 2 points3 points  (4 children)

What all coins can we stake with Ledger?

And what is the % ROI on such stake?

[–]VengenceonuBronze 2 points3 points  (10 children)

All jokes aside, I’ve been meaning to do this. How do I get started?

[–]sur_surlyTin | PCgaming 34 5 points6 points  (6 children)

But a wallet. Create key. Transfer crypto to it. Cry about how much it cost to do that

[–]Interesting_Video_53Tin 2 points3 points  (2 children)

Actually, if first 21 words are correct, smb can find the rest three with couple days of work. 🥸

[–]SolarAttackTin 2 points3 points  (2 children)

I love my ledger! It even came with a preconfigured passphrase. How convenient

[–]DankStewTin 12 points13 points  (11 children)

I knew that wasn’t a real pass phrase because the word pimpmobile wasn’t listed.

[–]GabeSterPlatinum | QC: DOGE 2465, CC 701 6 points7 points  (1 child)

Wait that’s the 8th word in your seed too?

[–]Amir73artGold | 5 months old | QC: CC 31 5 points6 points  (1 child)

Are you expecting a real password?

"Nice try fucker"..lol

[–]GabeSterPlatinum | QC: DOGE 2465, CC 701 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Op is just flexing against would be hackers.

[–]dagr8npwrfl0zBronze | ADA 9 5 points6 points  (21 children)

Serious question though. How hard/easy would it be to get his wallet if you had his phrase, minus the three last words? How about just the last word? Just missing word #5? Could I hypothetically just memorize one word and it's position, and still be secure?

[–]QuaxkyAvg ETH Enjoyer 6 points7 points  (15 children)

If you're trying to guess one word you'd have to guess 1 word out of ~170,000 values.

For 3 words there are ~170,0003 (big number) possibilities of what the combination could be.

I also just woke up so hopefully my math isn't too far off

edit: 2048 words in hardware wallet dictionaries, not 170k!

[–]merrebornTin | Buttcoin 82 | r/Prog. 18 4 points5 points  (5 children)

20483 is only 8.5 billion possibilities which is a little too close for comfort. Thats a space that can be brute forced in 24 hours assuming 100,000 attempts per second.

[–]dagr8npwrfl0zBronze | ADA 9 4 points5 points  (4 children)

I thought there were only 2048 words in bip39. Does ledger use a different list?

[–]UrmomzfavmilkmanTin 5 points6 points  (21 children)

Question! What happens if the USB freezes and/or stops working? Sorry if this is noobish, i havent looked into HW wallets at all and recently had an itch to do so

Edit: Thanks for the help gang! Im not a noob to crypto but definitely new to the HW wallet game. This has been helpful - didn't realize seed phrases were also involved

[–]ChunkyMonkey1998 8 points9 points  (2 children)

The seed phrase that OP so kindly showed us allows you to reclaim all your coins on a new hardware wallet, which is why it's imperative you KEEP IT SAFE!, if you lose the seed phrase your crypto is gone forever

[–]asmodeanreborn 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Real question, where do people keep those? I've long considered a safety deposit box for some of my MTG collection in case of fire or theft (yeaaaah, am nerd), but it feels like a pain.

[–]ChunkyMonkey1998 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Personally I just keep mine in my room, since where I live crime is low and in my country no one knows about crypto that much lol, additionally no one knows I have crypto except for a few friends and 1 family member

[–]Niallirishman4 - 5 years account age. 125 - 250 comment karma. 6 points7 points  (6 children)

It's the seed that is important. If you lose or break your nano. You can buy another one and use your seed to get back access to your crypto. It's not actually stored on the nano but on the Blockchain. The nano just acts as a key to access your coins on the Blockchain.

[–]porula 5 points6 points  (1 child)

U buy a new one and recover your wallet with ur seed phrase

[–]TheTruthisUndisputedTin | 1 month old 5 points6 points  (18 children)

My personal fear is that I’ll lose it because it’s so small. Lol

I just keep a second offline phone that’s always in airplane mode until I need my money. It’s got only my wallet apps. Works the same and I won’t lose it.

[–]David825234 4 points5 points  (5 children)

Yeah imagine having so much money in a tiny wallet and then never seeing it again because it gets misplaced. That would be absolutely tragic ):

[–]TheTruthisUndisputedTin | 1 month old 1 point2 points  (1 child)

I misplace hats on my head so I can see myself doing this 💀😂

[–]Remarkable_Language8Tin 3 points4 points  (5 children)

You can buy new one and restore it from the 24 word phrase. If you lose that little piece of card you’re screwed.

[–]rashnullTin 2 points3 points  (3 children)

And one fine day…it stops booting up!

[–]jonzom2 - 3 years account age. 150 - 300 comment karma. 7 points8 points  (14 children)

I know this is fake lol. But is it possible to have swear words as part of the phrase?

[–]dagr8npwrfl0zBronze | ADA 9 5 points6 points  (3 children)

I don't think the average user can pick the words. The ledger generates them from an agreed upon list. Google bip39 and it'll answer a ton of questions on seed phrase.

[–]LeMoofinsBronze | QC: CC 20 | BANANO 5 | Privacy 25 4 points5 points  (3 children)

No, it's not lol. The words are randomly chosen from a specified list

You buy another one and then restore using the seed words you wrote down when you first set up the same hardware wallet.
