Ethereum Data Recovery

Worried Man with Computer

Gillware Can Help Recover Your Ether!

Did you lose Ethereum from an old laptop, desktop, phone, or tablet? Do you need to recover Ether from an Atomic wallet? Are you having trouble accessing Ethereum stored in an Exodus wallet?

Data loss is a stressful experience, and this applies to an even greater degree when there is a significant financial element. Despite how technically capable many developers in the Ethereum network are, it’s always possible to accidentally delete a software wallet, reformat a device, or forget the password to a phone or tablet. Gillware can help you with your Ethereum private key recovery!

Ethereum Software Wallets

There have been a number of popular software wallets over the 8 years since Ether was first launched. The web-based multi-currency SpectroCoin wallet was released in 2013. Another popular multi-currency solution is the decentralized wallet Jaxx, which was released by Canadian company Decentral in 2014. The Exodus wallet is one of the most popular Ethereum software wallets, it was initially released in 2015. The multi-currency Atomic wallet was released in 2017.

Hardware wallets or cold-storage wallets offer an additional layer of security to software based ‘hot-wallets’ that are more easily connected to the internet. The Ledger company was launched in 2014, and has created the popular Ledger Nano S and Ledger Nano X hardware wallets. The Trezor wallet is a premier hardware wallet that adds convenience to security by enabling Ethereum holders to sign transactions directly from the wallet.

Ethereum Hard Forks

Ethereum underwent a hard-fork on July 20th, 2016 with block 1920000 on the Ethereum network. As such, if you were an early Ethereum adopter, and you experienced data corruption or data loss; your wallet also holds Ethereum Classic (ETC).

If you work with Gillware to recover Ethereum from a phone, tablet, laptop, desktop, or external hard drive; and the data recovery is successful; you will not only receive the Ethereum you lost, but also the same amount of Ethereum Classic.

Ethereum Data Recovery Fee Structure

Gillware has experience aiding crypto enthusiasts in this stressful situation. Some people will attempt to ‘recover’ Ethereum in situations where there’s a very remote chance that they actually had anything to begin with.

As such, Gillware has instituted a non-negotiable attempt fee of $500. This may seem like a lot of money, but in a situation where you are recovering $100,000 USD worth of Ethereum it is extremely reasonable.

ETH Recovered (Value in $USD)Finders Fee %
$0 – $500050%
$5001 – $10000015%
$100001 – $50000010%
$500001 – $30000007.5%
+ $30000015%

Ethereum Data Recovery Finders Fee

Gillware is a professional data recovery organization, and a majority of the data recovery cases we undertake are relatively risk-free. This does not hold true with ETH data recovery. Due to the significant degree of paperwork and legal liability, Gillware also charges a finders-fee on a sliding scale for any cryptocurrency successfully recovered. The finders fee is also non-negotiable, and this table describes the details.

ETH Data Recovery Procedure

Once your cryptocurrency wallet has been identified Gillware will reach out to the client to schedule a zoom call between a Gillware engineer, the client, and the client’s legal council (optional). The client will present a drivers license or another valid form of identification, they will witness Gillware taking the finders fee, and transferring their cryptocurrency to the clients active wallet. This is non-negotiable.

Due to the liability posed by illegitimate activity in the cryptocurrency space(dark-net markets for illegal substances / services and ransomware), Gillware will not convert your recovered cryptocurrency into another token or USD. If you lose ETH, you’re getting ETH (sorry Monero enthusiasts).

Note: Submitting an Ethereum data recovery case to this form does not guarantee that Gillware will be accepting your case. Making a submission to this form will result in a Gillware data recovery engineer reaching out to the phone number you have submitted. Gillware maintains the right to refuse or accept cryptocurrency data recovery cases at our discretion.

Ethereum Data Recovery Conclusion

In closing, if you were using a hardware or software wallet to store cryptocurrency, and you no longer have access to it; Gillware can help you get your tokens back. The experienced data recovery engineers at Gillware have helped clients recover over 3 Million USD worth of cryptocurrency.
