In keeping with the Foundation’s mission, we want to encourage an active Tezos ecosystem and support members of the Tezos community.

Previously, we announced that we’re funding the development of a tool to assist fundraiser contributors who are unable to access their recommended allocations from the genesis block proposed by the Foundation. In the near future, we will start a process to vet contributors attempting to recover lost fundraiser passwords. As ascertaining the identities of these people with absolute certainty is impossible, we will put forth our best effort to help contributors attempting to recover lost passwords while taking precautions to ensure other contributors are not at risk. After this process, at the vetted contributors’ request, we can also sign and publish a pair of their tz1 address and separate public key.

We will deploy a microsite at recovery.tezos.com where there will be instructions for fundraiser contributors that need this sort of assistance. Please be aware of phishing attempts and take all available safety precautions. We remind you to never enter your password, seed phrase, or other private information unless you absolutely trust the source and can ensure your machine is free of malware. 

For more resources and information about what to do after activating a recommended allocation, visit the Get Started page of Tezos.com. Community members can also email [email protected] with any questions.
