Your access to lost Bitcoin fortunes

According to the New York Times, an estimated 20% of all Bitcoin currently in circulation (18.5 million currently) is held in lost wallets. The encryption method of these wallets is more than 20 years old, and with constantly growing computing power and emerging new technologies, it is deemed to be broken in the near future. We believe that this provides a unique historical opportunity to collect these lost wallets with the goal to gain access to the fortune of lost Bitcoin. Welcome to the Stratorus Project.

The Stratorus Project provides anyone access to this unique and historical opportunity to collect these lost wallets with the goal to gain access to the fortune of lost Bitcoin.

Four Reasons

Four reasons why we believe that this is a feasible opportunity.

History

History has shown that every encryption scheme is only secure for a certain period of time. Encryptions like DES, MD5 or RSA have been broken after around 20 years of publication.

Outdated Encryption

The clock is ticking for AES, too. Bitcoin wallets are encrypted with the Advanced Encryption Standard (AES-256), which has been published in 2001 – more than 20 years ago.

On Top of Research

We monitor and track the development of cryptanalysis of the AES and publish the current state of its vulnerability. We will be first to know when opening wallets will be feasible.

Enormous Upside

Lost Bitcoin wallets can be purchased at a fraction of its (inner) value, providing an enormous upside potential. We believe that this is one of the last opportunities to get significant exposure in crypto.

W

Wallet Security.

The security of AES-256 (the chosen type of cryptography used in Bitcoin wallets) is weakening. The Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) has been in existence over the last 21 years. It was widely accepted as the de facto standard in many security-related applications such as Bitcoin wallets, SSL/TLS, Microsoft BitLocker Drive Encryption, Skype and many others. Already in 2011, the AES was claimed to be theoretically broken in the single-key attack model using a new technique called biclique. Just two years before in 2009, the AES with 192- and 256- bit keys were found to be theoretically broken in the related-key attack model.

McEliece cryptosystem based on Plotkin construction with QC-MDPC and QC-LDPC codes. (arXiv:2211.14206v2 [cs.CR] UPDATED)

In this paper, we propose a new variant of the McEliece cryptosystem using two families of quasi-cyclic codes: low density parity check codes (QC-LDPC) and moderate density parity check codes (QC-MDPC) (QC-MDPC). Due to the low weight codewords in the dual of LDPC codes, this family of codes is vulne…

Generating 2D and 3D Master Faces for Dictionary Attacks with a Network-Assisted Latent Space Evolution. (arXiv:2211.13964v2 [cs.CR] UPDATED)

A master face is a face image that passes face-based identity authentication for a high percentage of the population. These faces can be used to impersonate, with a high probability of success, any user, without having access to any user information. We optimize these faces for 2D and 3D face verific…

RPoA: Redefined Proof of Activity. (arXiv:2210.08923v2 [cs.CR] UPDATED)

We propose RPoA, a new consensus protocol that builds on top of some of the best features of the previous protocols, such as PoW, PoS, and PoA, and values active service provided by users on the network. While PoA tried to address some of the issues pertinent to PoS and PoW, it still fell short&helli…

The Top 5 Biggest Known Lost Bitcoin Fortunes.

Like in Robert Louis Stevenson’s famous novel, Treasure Island, a story about the search for buried treasure, there are some famously lost Bitcoin wallets. Just as there were pirates and ship captains with buried treasure. The difference between then and now however is that Bitcoin fortunes are buried in 1’s and 0’s. Not under sandy Caribbean beaches.

Facts

Facts

An average of 1,500 Bitcoins are lost every day. This loss is greater than the daily amount of Bitcoin released, according to an analyst report cited by Bitcoin.com. Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies leverage blockchain technology to transfer and exchange funds between digital wallets. The only way to access your digital wallet is via a private key. However, retrieving the key to lost cryptocurrency requires technology, processing power and extensive skills. Because of this, nearly $140Bn worth of Bitcoin alone is lost or inaccessible to owners, the New York Time reports.
