hi

i checked about 20 spreadsheets of bounty campaigns. and in these lists i found about 15 private keys to ETH addresses.
people post their key instead of their address.

all the addresses had nothing in it. maybe somebody else already emptied them.

Then they really deserve to lose their tokens because its clearly states what is the address and the private key.

One may wrongly enter it and it is so immediately listed on the spreadsheet. They probably aware of it and move their coins immediately to another wallet. If not so, they are obvious newbie.

How is it possible? ETH address has the easily identifiable beginning 0x.

This is what happens when without getting full knowledge about the procedure to join a bounty campaigns and do their own method of work and then after making loss they realize their mistake.

That is foolishness, if someone can no differentiate at this stage the difference between wallet address and Private keys. 15 private keys is a huge number

How is that possible? Private key is automatically unencrypted and you need to encrypt it before you can see the figures. Maybe those who did it are just new or drunk as fuck to post their private key on the spread sheet. If you're not new here why would you even mistakenly copy your private key and post it publicly.

I do notice it to, there are lots of misunderstanding of sending information on participating campaigns some participants sends their private key instead of their address and this can lead to another victim of Hackers.
On my experience on participating i notice one of participants who accidentally put his/her private key on the address information, you can tell it even by just looking. As you notice in myetherwallet all address are started at 0 digit and x character, first of seing his address with an starting string of 45c76***********************************************************(if im not mistaken) I already noticed that its not an address rather a private key.
To check whether my conclusion is true I accessed his/her wallet and It surely are the private key so I check the balance but unfortunately its been already emptied I already saw the past transaction 14 hrs ago 5 different token had been transfered into different account.

So everyone should be inform and warn by these, better review all the information that you are about to send on others.

This can also happen, when users login to their wallets with private keys, mark their addresses and forget to copy. In this way private keys instead of addresses are pasted. That happened to me, but I fortunately saw the mistake, before I posted the key.

This is a common thing which I do observed that people do mistakenly posted private keys instead of their own Eth wallet address.You would really be able to be hacked and people will surely get in on that wallet and took all the funds on it. Chances on hitting a jackpot on stealing other peoples coins,if you are careless then you would really make such loss but as far as I observed most people posted private keys are newbie or low ranks which most of those wallets are newly created.

Op, thank you for this wonderful observation as I think this is very possible and hackers can take advantage of this and steal people ethereum. What on earth would make some one to post it private keys in the place of his ethereum address. I agree with op that some one most have hacked those accounts and stole those ethereum balance.

most bounty hunters store addresses and private keys in one notepad and are located close together, so a fatal error can result in private keys that they keep secret, even published.

they should use MetaMask, and save a separate private key with an ETH address

It will only takes minute to empty all those wallets and there are people posting thier private keys in public with balances but the thing is you cannot withdraw the funds on that wallet because once you send eth on that address, after  recieving the eth it automaticaly send the eth to unique address.

of course you can empty their balances as long as you have their private keys because private keys are the ones you will use in order to open your myetherwallet account and most bounty campaigns especially erc20 related coins/tokens are required to get a myetherwallet account because it can supports all kind of coins and tokens whether it is old or new. but overall we cant do nothing about it and those people who actually do it are just careless  enough  or maybe they were just newbies that still confuse on what is a private key and eth address.

sometimes someone is in a hurry to follow a limited number of camps and fill out a hasty form that leads to a lack of thoroughness in reading campaye terms.
