Last night I accidentally sent ETH to the GNT contract address (owing to the fact that the address was on my clipboard last and my old android phone that I have one of my wallets on did not copy the wallet address correctly), yet received this message in response from the Golem Team when I inquired about a potential solution: "Dear Benjamin, I am sorry, but there is no way we could help you. The GNT contract (which had been deployed on Ethereum blockchain before the crowdfunding) does not give use any technical possibilities to send GNT from the contract address." When I then replied that this could not be, I then received this second email: "Dear Benjamin, unfortunately, we are not able to access the tokens you sent as well. This is how the smart contract is structured. Technically no way to send tokens from this address."
Is this true? Are they telling the truth or just don't want to help?
Thank you all in advance!
