neobee - 10 BTC (owner runaway)
bitfinex - 10 BTC (burnt on margin trading recently)

thats a ton of bitcoin.. 20 btc in total..

more then I have, the most loss was when I bought into pre-orders with the other cointerra miners.

i think you got the metrics wrong.. if its 0.001200? that isnt much.  and it doesnt form a $2 mark value.

Unless you mean 1.200 btc then yeah its reasonable loss.

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

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.

I did not use btc to buy it originally.  I was trying to move from gold -> btc by just selling on cryptothrift.  I (like a lot of people) got caught up in the dramatic rise occurring.  Someone ended up buying everything I had for sale when the price was up over 1k.  By the time it was delivered AND escrow was released price had already dropped significantly.  Thats when I decided to keep holding (and thus furthered my losses to around 2k).

If youre talking about faucet money then its free money to lose already, so technically you had no loss in the end lol.

But, these stories above me like mine are personal funds. Although you point out not being scammed, theres multiple scenarios that someone can lose bitcoins even if its not scams. Like not having a strong passphrase, to importing a old address, etc.

Its still a loss for the individual despite if he got free money or not.

Its the feeling of the loss and despite the amount may not be as big, it could of been a .1 btc or something that could of been grown further.

Lost quite a bit in the early days when trying to exchange Bitcoins for either a Ukash or Paysafecard voucher.
It was around 100 dollars, learned to look up reviews before using a random service Cheesy

I remember now and one of my biggest losses was buying on the Quark scam like a retard. I even paid a lot of extra fee due Virwox scamming me with their method to buy BTC. Ahh the days of being a gullible noob are long gone.

That is surprising. Every now and then, Primedice used to give away free coins, so that their users could play games without risking their own money. That used to be the case when I was participating in the Primedice sig campaign. Not sure whether they have stopped this promotion or not. I haven't logged in to my Primedice account for more than 6 months now.

Not rich. Bought in big with credit card debt in 2013 at $65-150 and doubled it on Asicminer.

Rocky road from there though. BTC is a minefield.
