Pull lost funds manually from the optimism escrow via an executive vote.
A user accidentally called the burn function on the DAI.sol on optimism, accidentally burning 10,000,000 DAI.
Here is the transaction hash showing the event: https://optimistic.etherscan.io/tx/0xd2a83ab5e9c412a5ce9e738e967051ebef9b92459a5732858a06cdf82ba469c8
The error occurred given that the burn function was confused with that of this contract: https://optimistic.etherscan.io/address/0xad32aa4bff8b61b4ae07e3ba437cf81100af0cd7
Given that it is easy to argue this was not intentional (nobody would send $10M USD to a 0 address), this post kindly requests to recover this funds via executive vote.
Protocol Engineering has confirmed that it is possible to do this on-chain by pulling the funds manually from the Optimism escrow via an executive vote.
The user can include a signed message with the wallet “I called the burn function in the DAI contract out of confusion with a different contract, please help me recover the funds”, if such proof is required.
Hopefully the community will understand that this was a human error and help recover the funds.
