While we await the launch of genX masternode, my laptop crashed a week to my MSc defense but I was able to maneuver my ways for the defense with the backup I have. Unfortunately, the genx backup I have is of the wallet I deleted before I start the bounty campaign. The recovered wallet.dat is corrupted :cry: ... The main reason am posting this is to be a lesson to all, be sure you have a backup and a backup (just in case)...I guess 30k+ GenX here Schdm1Cyt1wMYS6aWr9Yj9a2jmR9ph2uMK is lost forever....

I'm sorry to hear that.

You should always have multiple backups ...

I have the wallets on 2 USB stick, 1x hard disk where I update the whole wallets, 1x hard disk (same backup as USB sticks)

every 2 months a backup of the wallets on Blueray


It's money ... there should be some action.

Very sorry for you @Benson, I truly am but folks, do not just make copies of your wallet.dat, even multiple copies on multiple supports.
Save your private key(s) too ! On a piece of paper you keep in a safe place ! That should be taught in crypto 101.
