So i am not a newbie to crypto
i know about checking addresses and stuff, but well, even monkey fall from tree
I accidentally sent dai to dai contract address, as opposed to my coinbase account
it was something stupid i know,
i went to get the address to send to from CB, i copied, i scrolled down in metamask to get to the dai token so i could send
i couldnt / didnt see it in my list of tokens, so i had to add it,
I go to etherscan, get the contract addy, and added token- but when i scrolled down i saw that dai was there now at the bottom… so i proceeded as planned and just simply forgot to go back to CB and re-copy the address to wallet
so off it went to the dai contract address…
I have read lots on line about many others having done this.
But i come here in peace.
I just want to know like who’s decision it is that maybe could go through the process of having send the dai back?? or considering they are now burnt (along with the 50K other dai that has been sent to the contract) - that who is the person, or group of people that make the decision to mint the dai that has been, for all-intense-and-purposes burnt, and sent back to originating address/es???
what would the people need to do, because i am sure that the other people that have done similar, given there is 50K dai sitting on contract address, would appreciate their dai being returned
so what motions need to be done, who is it that one could approach or just who makes those types of decisions?
heres an idea, maybe dai team can do even something like going through the process/effort of burning/minting … and maybe charging a fee to those that wish their coins to be returned >??? 10% 20% idk, id be more than willing to have like a service fee of x%, its more-so a thing to me of principle, versus just needing the money back, those were mine, they did belong to me, and i just want them back. i know crypto can be brutal and very unforgiving, but idk i just didnt/dont know what else to do or where to go, so came here.
I am a regular person, not rich, i was going to use that dai to pay bills. it was dai i was going to send to bank account to pay mortgage last week, i have children and wife i need support
in the grand scheme of things it is not a lot of dai, but it was enough to make me want to investigate and see what would one have to do to make the dai be returned.
?? please it is very important to me !! and i suspect important to the many others that have also sent dai by accident to the contract address. !!
