Lost recovery phrase but still have access to account and PGP

by /u/ColdIceBerg · 1 votes · 2 months ago

I lost my recovery phrase but I still have the password to my account which I can access and my PGP. My only worry is IF I ever do lose access I would still have my recovery. Hence I want to create a new account with the same PGP and everything but I'm worried about losing my reputation as a buyer to certain vendors I have ordered from numerous times. Any advice? Should I continue with the current or create a new account.

Try contacting staff. You clearly have proof you are who you are. They will probably be able to work something out

They refused to which is completely understandable, I am moving to create a new account. Not like my current account is a very high level buyer account.

Very little chance of that working out but who knows

If you never lose your user/pass the recovery phrase will never be of use. Uncertain the market staff would help you out with something like this. You gotta think about what reputation as a buyer really is. Most venders definitely do recognize repeat buyers and will reward these people, I understand your concern for reputation. As a buyer it's pretty irrelevant in reference to the reputation of a seller. It doesn't matter really what you do, if you truly have any rep it'll follow you.

Probably nothing to be done, mate. That phrase is genereated once and only once. It's random, to boot. You can ask to create a new account and have your level bumped up at most. Doubt it will happen.

If you create the new account with the same PGP, the vendors would be able to validate you are the same person if they were so inclined... but most vendors that ive known really dont care... you buy, they sell. Some may have a closer relationship with their regulars, but then that usually extends off the markets since it generally doesnt matter if you are level 1 or level 10, price is the same either way as long as your xmr is #00ff00.
