How to Release Contract Address Ownership?

  1. Sign a verifiable message using the address that is tied to the contract address with a message that indicates you are releasing your ownership of the contract address.

(Refer: How to sign a message using MyCrypto)

  1. The signed message should follow the template below:
[Etherscan.io dd/mm/yyyy hh:mm:ss] I, hereby verify that I am the owner/creator of the token contract address [contract address] and I hereby release my user account [Etherscan Username] as the verified owner of [contract address].
  1. Try to verify the signed message first using our Verified Signature tool here before proceeding to the next step.

  2. Once you are able to verify the message, email us and provide us with the entire signature including "address", "msg", and "sig" (also called the signature hash).
