Located an old crypto address on my old laptop prior to recycling - I have no idea what exchange if any - I have a number of passwords that may be associated with it, but have no idea where to start - any suggestions? The address / account looks like this (made a few edits). 8fe2e2e3-7f26-46ab-b181-e6831 eee36c8

The only Hexadecimal numbers with hyphens that I recall seeing are the so-called Wallet-IDs provided by custodial services to account holders.

An example would be Simplecoin but I'm sure there are many more. I recall blockchain.com have used Wallet-IDs with a similar form.

I can't think of any real† wallets that use Wallet-IDs of that form.
