    The wallet will stay on the network untouched as it should be considered as burned coins. Nobody will touch them and can't be restored without the seed or hex

    As others have said, if you did not save either your seed hex or your seed words as the instructions very clearly stated (and I recall even having to type OK in all caps that I read and understood the message), there is nothing anyone can do.

    If they could, crypto currencies simply would not be secure as it would mean anybody could just arbitrarily spend your coins.

    Any coins tied to a lost seed are effectively gone forever. This is always true, not just for the airdrop coins.

    are you sure? i am not sure anymore. :p then where was the hex code in same window as the seed? then i think this is not very useful. People would not have saved a strange code if they didn't save the seed. Also what is extended public key for?

    The command is for getting a new address so it gives you a new address and yes all such created addresses are in the same wallet and can be used to receive DCR. To see all your addresses run

    dcrctl -u user -P pass --wallet getaddressesbyaccount default

    I always forget that command... And when I look it up, I forget the "default." They say the memory is the second thing to go. I can't remember what the first is... ;)

    Awsome, thanks. Also, the HEX code is 64 characters, so that means this is 32 words? How do i get 33 words then?

    The last word is a checksum byte. The seed itself is 32 bytes.

    No, it works properly as it is. You can either download the binaries via the Releases tab, or you can build from source if you prefer.

    Here is an example of me building from source:

    Code:
    $ go get -u github.com/davecgh/dcrseedhextowords
    $ dcrseedhextowords "enter_your_seed_hex_here"
    The specified seed must have a length of 64 characters
