From a technology perspective, the blockchain is forever. Why can’t claims be forever too? Artificially introduced expiration dates harm those who decided to go on vacation, or set it and forget it, or aren’t that involved but are an XIO holder.
My personal preference is that all blockchain situations for all crypto projects should always have an infinite duration in scenarios like this, otherwise it can harm some investors/holders.
Maybe XIO could help set the precedent that blockchain data should be treated like it exists forever, because it does exist forever?
If I had to choose a specific time limit to claim, 1 year should likely cover 99% of the people who would ever claim would do it by then.
I’d hate to be hit by a car and go into a coma and wake up a few years later to find out some arbitrary deadline existed that screwed me out of claiming FLASH (or any other time this situation comes up in any other crypto project), when in theory it could have just as easily been coded to be allowed to be claimed forever.
I’d hate to die and my wife takes way too long to get around to doing what she needs to do to manage my crypto profile, or maybe the kids one day in 10 years get around to digging through dad’s old shit to figure it out. I would hope they can still claim some FLASH by then
