I cannot support any proposals to alter the land registry contract for claims of lost land. If you cannot sign a message with the keys that hold the NFT, then you do not own that wallet. Couldn’t be more definitive.
The projects white paper explained the scarcity of land and purchasers should understand how to deal with the risks that presents. Decentraland Land is not readily accessible from Coinbase, it takes effort and crypto knowledge to get to those transactions. Such a person should know how to store private keys or seed phrases securely and if not, they should slow down and learn. We cannot toss the cryptographic systems underlying Decentraland because someone claims to have made a mistake and can’t meet the burden of proof.
Also, Lost land means the land that is available is worth more, which isnt a bad thing for the rest of the landowners out there. I appreciate the argument that an empty world is less valuable, but I doubt Decentraland is empty due to lost land or we’d hear about this problem way more than we do today.
