Title: Withdrawal problem
Post by: msj6319 on June 27, 2011, 09:10:15 PM
Hey guys,

I withdrew a couple of Bitcoins from my GUIMiner and realized the sending address I have at DeepBit is wrong. I had to re-install the Bitcoin app and never changed my address for payment (i know what an idiot). Am I basically screwed?

That sucks It took me 2 1/2 days to generate them. That was a lesson I won't forget. I figured when the payout could not confirm the sending address it would come back. I guess that was wishful thinking. Thanks for the reply.

What exactly happens when it goes "into the void" or did it just go to someone's account somewhere?

Seems to me that with a fixed and limited amount of Bitcoins that will ever be (21 million) a lot will be lost due to crashed hard drives losing wallet.dat files and thus actually end up being less than 21 million when all said and done...
