    >*”Although nobody has successfully claimed the bounty reward and removed the cryptocurrency from the wallet, there have been many claims that the device can easily be hacked.”*

    So it wasn’t hacked and no money was successfully taken.

    Yet this thread gets 2,000 upvotes because idiots don’t even bother to read the article.

    Says a lot about the low-IQ teenagers who saturate this sub.

    Got it. I think he said that but he meant no coins can be stolen. Truth is he’s a little whacky.
    And with so many exchange hacks people losing actual funds. No one has lot a $1 yet on one of these devices.

    Looks like no one has heard the dead donkey story. Similar stuff so even if pays 250k, the money is already made.

    A city boy, Kenny, moved to the country and bought a donkey from an old farmer for $100. The farmer agreed to deliver the donkey the next day.
    The next day the farmer drove up and said: “Sorry son, but I have some bad news. The donkey died.”

    Kenny replied, “Well then, just give me my money back.”

    The farmer said, “Can’t do that. I went and spent it already.”

    Kenny said, “OK, then just unload the donkey.”

    The farmer asked, “What ya gonna do with him?”

    Kenny: “I’m going to raffle him off.”

    Farmer: “You can’t raffle off a dead donkey!”

    Kenny: “Sure I can. Watch me. I just won’t tell anybody he is dead.”

    A month later the farmer met up with Kenny and asked, “What happened with that dead donkey?”

    Kenny: “I raffled him off. I sold 500 tickets at $2 a piece and made a profit of $998.00.”

    Farmer: “Didn’t anyone complain?”

    Kenny: “Just the guy who won. So I gave him his $2 back.”

    It’s like drawing a chessboard on top of a new ps4 and then saying you’ve successfully hacked it to play custom games.

    Either you have no idea what you are talking about or you are intentionally spinning the story to create commotion.

  5. Has anyone actually managed to move funds from a device they don’t have the keys to, though?

    I’m not defending their hardware wallet, but installing DOOM on it would be like claiming you got inside of an (allegedly) impenetrable fortress by painting the door a new color.

    Is it hacking to wipe all wallet software and upload your own bios to play a game? Did anyone remove any amounts of crypto from the wallet, or just install other things.
