What shall I do if my crypto wallet is compromised?

If you're concerned about the security of your crypto wallet credentials, it's recommended to create a new wallet and transfer all your assets to the new one.

Follow these steps for a secure transition:

1. Accessing InPersona Dapp: Open the InPersona Dapp and navigate to the "Wallet" section.

2. Creating or Importing a New Wallet: Click on the "+” to create or import a new wallet button. For detailed instructions, refer to the tutorial: How can I set up / import my InPersona Wallet?

3. Viewing Wallets: After creating or importing the new wallet, click on the "v" next to the wallet address in the wallet section to see all your wallets. Choose the new wallet where you want to transfer all your assets.

4. Copying Wallet Address: Click on the green "icon_copy.png" button next to the chosen wallet to copy its corresponding address.

5. Transferring Assets: Return to your old wallet and proceed to transfer assets one blockchain at a time (VyvoSmart Chain, Polygon and Binance Smart Chain). Follow this order:

  • Send NFTs first.
  • Move all stable coins and Non-native coins available in each blockchain:
    • USDV and VSCX on Vyvo Smart Chain.
    • VSC, USDV, USDC, USDT, DAI and USDC.e on Poligon.
    • VSC, USDV, BUSD, USDT and DAI on Binance Smart Chain.
  • Finally, transfer the remaining native coins of each blockchain:
    • VSC on Vyvo Smart Chain.
    • MATIC on Poligon.
    • BNB on Binance Smart Chain.

Please note: Ensure you follow this order because native cryptos are needed to pay gas fees for transactions.

Click "Send" and paste the address of the new wallet in the receiving address section. Transfer the total amount of each asset.

6. Exception: Staked VSC: Note that you cannot transfer any staked VSC (Virtual Staking Coins) immediately. You must wait for them to be unstaked before transferring. If you have staked assets, wait for the stake to end and transfer also this final asset before deleting the compromised wallet.
