1  Bitcoin / Development & Technical Discussion / Long Term Digital Storage - BTC & Alt Coins - Future Access for non-tech pers on: February 15, 2017, 07:00:38 PM
I am looking for solutions for longer term digital/physical storage for my BTC,  and alt-coins of assorted types.  I have been holding onto my coins and watching them steadily increase in value,  and I plan on keeping them longer term well into the future.  Some of the richest BTC investors today are people who bought coins in 2010/2009 and just forgot all about them until 2013 or now.

They are a great investment so far,  and although I have bought and sold in the past as an early adopter of ASIC mining in 2013,  I haven't moved/mined any since 2015....  and I first owned BTC at about $60.00 a coin.

One additional issue is that I want my coins to be accessible in case something happens to me,  to allow access to them by the caretakers of what is left of my estate.  I am considering holding in a safety deposit box at a bank.

The challenge with any storage medium is leaving instructions in how to deal with them to less technically capable persons,  particularly those who don't necessarily understand bitcoin/alternate coins,  and/or the value.  Easy access is important.

For BTC I was considering a Trezor,  although I am open to other mediums.

For Dash/LiteCoin/Doge/Cloak/a bunch of other alt coins of varying value - I am open to any suggestions.

One issue that I want to ensure that doesn't happen is the MultiBit HD unconfirmed bug,  which I just got over with.  It was ass-pain,  and while a simple solution,  might be beyond the capabilities of others who might have to handle the coins.

2  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / DarkCoin upgrade to on: January 18, 2015, 02:19:13 AM
Just having some issues upgrading DarkCoin from beta to  I use a Mac Computer to store my coins.

I get the error:

"You canít copy some of these items because their names are the same as other items on the destination volume, and that volume doesnít distinguish between upper- and lowercase letters in filenames. Do you want to skip these items and continue copying the other items?"

I am given the option to skip or stop the install.  So far I have chosen to stop. I haven't found any info so far on this issue....  so should I go ahead and just skip, to push through the install? 

I don't want to break my wallet or anything, as I want to keep these coins long term.


3  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Technical Support / Lost access to 0.71535432 BTC on: December 14, 2014, 07:52:25 AM
Had sometime really interesting to me....

I have a decent balance of BTC...  close to 7 BTC,  and I decided to send some small amounts of coin (approximately $5.00 worth) to donate to a worthy development cause.

I ended up losing access for the time being to the above amount of coins!! Caused quite a scare at first...  (said I had that amount less to spend)!

I am assuming this is blowback from the P2Pool mining days I used to engage in? ?  Piles upon piles of pennies?  LOL
