Yes, even if the private key is lost. It should be untouched. This is like asking Apple to put a backdoor into iOS “just for the good guys.”

It doesn't matter what 'should' be done. There is money up for grabs, it's nuts to think people will just leave it there. Given that people WILL try to claim it, how should that go?

Wait, do you acknowledge that the cryptography in the protocol will eventually have to be updated?

I never suggested otherwise. This is the part where you now try to continue justifying theft of funds "because someone will eventually steal it anyway." 🙄

This is much better for the currency as a whole than to let them go to whoever or fall out of circulation forever.

It's not theft if you allow the owners to come forward and claim them. In fact, the miners are the best people to run such a system. They have the integrity of the currency in mind.

I'll pass on SV. Reclaiming funds by mining is theft and fraud. The end.

So dramatic :P What do you mean reclaiming by mining? How does that work? The method I outlined does not use mining hardware.
