Canadian Court Rules to Return Mistakenly Sent Ethereum to Rightful Owner

Virtually all available wallets require a back-up of the wallet with a 24-word mnemonic seed. The user is asked to write down the 24 random words and then store them in a safe place to be used in the future in the event a wallet is lost and requires recovery. This is a flawed approach and constitutes a potential security breach.
Anyone who is in possession of these 24 words is in control of the funds stored in the wallet. Any time that you write down these words and store them somewhere there is exposure to risk.
No matter how secure the location or hiding place there is a possibility that someone can find the seed phrase and take over the funds stored in the wallet. There is also the possibility of fire, theft, water damage, decay and many other events that can trigger a total loss of funds stored in a wallet.


A truly secure cryptocurrency wallet allows the user to store an unlimited amount of funds without any risk or possibility of loss.  And this is exactly what we do in the DigitalBank Hardware Wallet .

Helen Partz Canadian Court Rules to Return Mistakenly Sent Ethereum to Rightful Owner A superior trial court of British Columbia decided that mistakenly transferred Ethereum should be returned to the rightful owner. A Canadian trial court has ruled that a sum of mistakenly transferred Ethereum tokens should be returned to the rightful holder 650 Total views 62 Total shares News A Canadian court has decided that a sum of mistakenly transferred cryptocurrency should be returned to its rightful owner, according to a report from the University of Oxford Faculty of Law published Dec. 12.
A superior trial court of British Columbia found that Ethereum ( ETH ) tokens , which were mistakenly sent by the plaintiff, blockchain startup Copytrack, to the defendant , Brian Wall, must be returned to Copytrack.
According to the report, the defendant mistakenly received 530 Ethereum coins from Copytrack instead of 530 Copytrack (CPY) tokens that he was supposed to get after participating in Copytrack’s Initial Coin Offering ( ICO ).
At the time of the incorrect transaction to his private crypto wallet, the amount of acquired Ethereum amounted to 495,000 Canadian dollars ($370,482), while the value of CPY tokens he intended to purchase was worth 780 Canadian dollars ($583).
Copytrack subsequently discovered the mistaken transaction, and requested Wall to return the erroneously sent crypto. Following initial denials to transfer back the Ethereum, the defendant agreed to send the tokens back to the startup.
Eventually, Wall claimed that his private wallet was hacked and the mistakenly transferred amount of Ethereum was stolen. Per the report, Wall passed away only a few days after legal proceedings on the matter began.
In addition to ruling on the return, the court was called to find a working definition of cryptocurrencies, as both parties argued about whether the Ethereum tokens constituted a digital currency, a digital good, or another type of asset.
According to the report, the Canadian court “missed the opportunity” to define the legal character of cryptocurrencies because it “could not be handled through summary judgment.” Since the defendant was deceased, “there would be no practical utility in sending this matter to trial.”
The court therefore ruled the Ethereum tokens to simply be the property of the plaintiff and that they should be returned. Claims in conversion and detinue were left unsettled.
The report notes that, while the legal status of cryptocurrencies in case law remains hazy, there is an increasing number of cases in which “intangible assets” such as funds and shares are subject to conversion and detinue claims.
Canada is reportedly one of the most crypto-friendly countries, with its favorable regulation of the industry, and low energy costs for crypto mining . In the summer of 2018, the Canadian government issued an official draft regulation for crypto exchanges and payment operators.
