    Kirobo adds ‘undo-button’ for ETH, ERC-20 transactions

    The company previously released a bitcoin version of the technology, which adds a password that allows users to cancel previously irreversible transactions

    The undo feature will allow users to reclaim funds sent to the wrong wallet during “previously irreversible ether transactions,” the company said. "When dispatching digital assets, a password is entered by the sender. Funds are then released only when the recipient enters this same password. If the password is not entered, the sender can retrieve their assets at their convenience.”
