The developers of the French blockchain start-up ACINQ advised users of the recently released Lightning-wallet Eclair to temporarily refrain from using it.
“PSA: We have disabled the mainnet Eclair Wallet Android app from Google Play and removed the apk link from our github page.”
According to them, this decision is caused by accidental deletion of the signature key:
“We just discovered that we could have lost the signing
Note: the key is not compromised, just was accidentally deleted and is not recoverable.”
The developers assured the users that this measure is forced, and promised to fix the errors soon, releasing the corresponding update for this Android-application.
The release of Lightning-wallet Eclair for the main Bitcoins network took place on Wednesday, April 4.
Though the crypto market is still relatively new and lacks many of the traditional institutions of a civilized market, there are projects on the market that seek to indemnify or mitigate the associated risks that investors take when deciding to invest in projects. Cryptics is one such project that seeks to offer the necessary instruments for alleviating the situation with uncertainty. The concept behind it is to support market participants by providing liquidity on exchanges and a safety cushion for retail investors by creating a platform that connects market players and develops algorithms to predict changes in the value of cryptocurrencies. Such instruments based on highly advanced scoring models involving machine learning and AI are incomparable with human intuition that even the luckiest and most prudent investors could ever be endowed with. The multitude of factors involved in predicting a cryptocurrency’s rise or fall are all taken into account by the algorithms that Cryptics employs. Investors should consult such projects as the expense is well worth the ensured profit and peace of mind.
