My biggest Bitcoin loss was 0.12 BTC some month ago by sending them to a wrong address  Grin
very fortunate for those who have the address haha, Cheesy



0.12 btc is not such a huge price anyway. Once, a person transferred 2 btc and I thought those were my payments for my services regarding some company I was working for, but long story short, they weren't. I invested all of it on further investments and didn't stop counting money ever since, now the interests seem to drift from money, its all about being yourself and what you do.

I sold a bunch of gold at the top in late 2013 (when btc was over 1k), and it got stuck in escrow while the price crashed.  That equaled probably a $2,000 loss

I lost somewhere around BTC30 with LTC-GLOBAL (BTCT.co) in 2013, which constituted some 60% of all my BTC holdings at that point of time. I am still cursing my decision to invest my coins in LTCGLOBAL.... Perhaps I got too greedy back then. Anyway... the lesson learnt the hard way. I am not going to invest again in any other investment scheme.

Probably only $15 spread out across a bunch of scamcoins, of which I 'invested' into and subsequently pulled out of too soon - or held too long & left with nothing Angry

At the beginning it was complicated for me but perspective of such innovative currency was interesting. unfortunetly about the 'boom time' i found that i have lost my private key...

my biggest loss comes for the accumulation of 2 years of gambling off and on primedice.

2.8 btc loss which could of been sitting in my wallet the entire time.

all the loss was from doing 90% bets thinking you can scalp .1 btc a week or something viable.

I agree, and to add, I think it's even harder to get rid of when you are gambling with Bitcoin. I mean it's so easy to gamble by using bitcoins nowadays. No registration, limits, nothing. There are some gambling sites where you don't even have to open an account (I am not gonna mention the names) you just send an amount to the certain address and if you win, your winnings are automatically transfered to the address of your choice.

I was amazed when I learnt all of that and this ease of use won't help gambling addictions at all!

If someone bought two very expensive pizza,            Could be it a loss? Cheesy  

The I better don't tell here how much I paid to a couple of programmers who accepted Bitcoin... and I shouldn't mention all the wallets from the past of which I forgot the password. And I shouldn't talk about the harddrives which crashed and which I couldn't reconstruct....

I mean we can shrug it off still since the value is moderately low.

But if bitcoin was like 1,000 per coin, then Id say wow. But still a loss and its painful. I can only imagine if the value stayed at 1,000 that 6 btc would be a 6,000 loss..

the most I lost was like 2.4 btc on 1 roll on primedice and that felt gutted out losing it like less then 1 second.

thats really sucks.

And its a shame you werent able to use it for anything, and something that most people overlook is the passphrase to their wallets as well or knowing to back up the btc wallet file.

I personally lost some bitcoin based on some bad deals by buying hardware from BFL when everything was overhyped.

was it in the form of malware?

My only btc loss was from luckybit and even though I was winning the btc fees of sending to luckybit adds up, leaving me a lower balance. Its actually ridiculous, cause if I remember correctly I paid like .2 in btc fees.

by any chance did you use the btc to buy the gold 1st? or was it gold that you already had?

that 2k loss is huge.. thats a ton of money like 2 months of rent money.. i feell for you.
