White hat hacker attempts to recover ‘millions’ in lost Bitcoin, finds only $105

Joe Grand, a computer engineer and hardware hacker known by many for recovering crypto from hard-to-reach places, spent hours breaking into a phone only to find a fraction of a Bitcoin. In a YouTube video released on Thursday, Grand traveled from Portland to Seattle in an effort to potentially recover “millions of dollars” in Bitcoin (BTC) from a Samsung Galaxy SIII phone owned by Lavar Sanders, a local bus operator. Sanders originally purchased the BTC in July 2016 in a “super sketchy” way, paying a person at a cafe and storing the crypto in a wallet on the phone before putting it in storage and losing track of the device. After finding the phone in 2021, Sanders couldn’t recall the swipe password, but remembered setting up the option of erasing the data if too many incorrect attempts wer...

Warning: Smartphone text prediction guesses crypto hodler’s seed phrase

Seed phrases, a random combination of words from the Bitcoin Improvement Protocol (BIP) 39 list of 2048 words, act as one of the primary layers of security against unauthorized access to a user’s crypto holdings. But, what happens when your “smart” phone’s predictive typing remembers and suggests the words next time you try to access your digital wallet? Andre, a 33-year-old IT professional from Germany, recently posted on the r/CryptoCurrency subreddit after discovering his mobile phone’s ability to predict the entire recovery seed phrase as soon as he typed down the first word. As a fair warning to fellow Redditors and crypto enthusiasts, Andre’s post highlighted the ease with which hackers can use the feature to drain a user’s funds just by being able to type the first word out of the B...

Why NFT adoption is so high in South Korea

South Korea’s reputation as a trend-setter and leader in technological research is quickly spilling into the blockchain realm as nonfungible token (NFT) adoption has skyrocketed in the small East Asian country. As of 2020, South Korea has been among the top-10 countries in the world in the Global Innovation Index by the World Intellectual Property Organization. That level of innovation is made apparent to global retail consumers by tech giants such as Samsung and LG and to gamers through game maker Krafton. Those companies, and many like them, are now also delving into the NFT space by dropping new collections to customers and launching divisions of their company dedicated to developing NFTs. There may be several reasons for the eagerness to expose retail consumers and the general public a...

HHW Tech Review: The Galaxy Note Lives On In Samsung’s New S22 Ultra Smartphone

HipHopWired Featured Video Source: Bernard Smalls (@BeanzGotGamez) / Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra Samsung took a bold step with one of its latest flagship smartphones, and it was a VERY wise decision. After months of speculation, Samsung casually “killed off” its relatively popular Galaxy Note model, making the exceptional Note20 Ultra the device’s swan song. At the same time, Samsung also decided to keep what made the Note line great and just introduce it into the S22 Ultra model, bringing together loyal Note users and with the other Galaxy smartphone users. A decision that we believe will benefit Samsung in the long run. Display Source: Bernard Smalls (@BeanzGotGamez) / Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra One area where Samsung always delivers with its flagship smartphones is the display, and with the ...
