Who own ethereum 0x0000000000000000000000000000000000000000 address? I have received some 0Chain token from this address. I know this is a genesis address but who can access it?
There is a treasure trove of tokens sent to
address(0) to "burn" under the assumption that no one has the private key. and no one ever will.
In a manner of speaking, I would classify it as a very large open bounty. It's like a pinata for mathematicians and quantum computers.
Hope it helps.
The genesis block is a special block which was mined by nobody and therefore is associated with the account 0x0000000000000000000000000000000000000000.
It's impossible to generate the private key for this address and people can use it as proof-of-burn account on the Ethereum blockchain.
