Make it standard-issue for treasurers/escrows, and require "I'm ok" bursts.

Or it could be escrow duos. Two escrows working together, both with access to the privkeys, so that if one dies of sudden plane crash, money is not lost. Smiley

Duos? How about 2 of 3s? Have each of the parties to the transaction be one of the three key holders.

Cool. I enjoy it when people are not dead.  Smiley

I also enjoy not being dead. One of my favourite pastimes actually.

I must admit, I had assumed the the worst from this. Don't know whether that makes me a cynic or a realist  Grin.

Given that this is the bitcoin world and stuff like this has happened before (TradeFortress comes to mind) I would say you're a realist.

lol, yes, and I would agree, but some people tend to call me cynical when I think I'm just being realistical.

Yes, it's better; there are many variations of course.

For example, you could have still "only one guy" as what happens now, but that lone guy would give a X-of-Y backup to other trusted people (2 of 3, 4 of 5, who cares). It's not even an issue of trust, it's also the issue of buses running over people. This can be done for wallets, but it can also be done to backup other things like account passwords so really there is no excuse, any serious service should have those kind of disaster plans.

I like the 2 of 3 reputable escrows to release BTC. But the escrow service will cost 3x more  Sad

You are right, that IS an issue. Still, it does not make sense to be "one deep" in a service like this. There are just too many things that can go wrong. I've seen it time and time again in the IT industry. Only one guy "has the keys" and he gets sick, hit by a bus, chased by Chinese mafia... anything can happen!

This is a personal lesson for me - don't depend on a single individual when $ is at stake.

Hi John K. I'll escrow your escrows if you don't mind. Smiley I don't fly often although we get hit by typhoons every now and then.

Signature. You know what to do.

John K needs a wife, a Ms John K, to also have privkeys in case if Mr John K dies or gets abducted by aliens or something.
