I’ve been thinking about the 12 word wallet recovery phrase. There are a lot of accidents that can happen where one loses one’s mobile phone or a house burns down, computer gets stolen, a poor person in Africa has nowhere to ‘store’ a paper recovery phrase etc etc.
Is it worth having a function where it is possible to choose ones own words that will be harder to forget and not have to necessarily be written down eg. the words in a poem, a phrase that means something to that individual and no one else, or some other self initiated idea for 12 words?
It is a scary thing for anyone to lose their 12, let alone telling someone getting into crypto that ‘yeah if you forget these 12 words your life savings will never be recovered’!
Good for the old, forgetful, poor, transient .......
