1  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Technical Support / Brother died - looking for BTC on: December 09, 2017, 08:50:32 AM
Hi,

My brother died last year, and I knew him to be a bitcoin miner. Recently I have put myself through a crash course in mining, and even became a miner myself.

In searching, I found a 20 word mnemonic that led me to ~$250 in BTC & $40 BCH at blockchain.info

I've looked for, but haven't found any wallet.dat files, wallet.*, login.*, coin, blockchain, and a few others I can't remember now. I haven't found a hardware wallet.

I'm waiting for coinbase customer service to help me get into the account that I know he had there (unknown if there's anything in it).

I know he started mining in October of `13 through mid/late `14. He was probably inactive between then and his death in October of `16.

Can anyone suggest other places on the web to search, any other search terms for his computer, names of software wallets he may have used?

Any help would be appreciated

I was hoping that could be worked out. The FAQ says the whole S9 needs to be returned, but it doesn't make sense to do so (to me).

Running on the 2 boards, I'm getting 9.2GH

I'm jumping in with both feet. I have another S9 coming Dec 27-Jan2, Three L3+ this week, and I'm waiting on half the parts to build three ( 8 ) GTX 1070 rigs.

Thanks again for the advice.

Thank you. I have already contacted Bitmain (no reply). I was hoping there was something I was overlooking.

Hi,

This is a brand new Antiminer S9 (my first attempt at mining). Can someone help me figure out why it is only running 2/3?
