When bitcoins are lost, they are lost forever correct?

is it not true then, that eventually the number of coins in circulation will be less and less, which in turn may lead to
added deflation  pressure ?
governments can re-issue old or lost bills, but if bit coin is physically lost, the supply of currency will diminish. 

So what is the solution to this as this guy just jost 30,000 coins.

If wallet.dat (private key) is lost, the bitcoin is lost "forever". It is impossible (at the current stage) for people to generate a 256-bit number which happens to be the private key for the wallet. Since there's no central authority, you also cannot do a "forget your password" to recover your private key because no one else has it other than you.

So when bitcoins lost forever, the total supply of bit coins will be reduced? Or the lost bitcoins will be generated again in the future?
Or they become a dead weight, forever associated with lost wallet? 

And if so, eventually more and more bitcoins will get lost, due to computer failure or confiscations by the Government.
Or by solar flare (magnetic storms) destroying data etc.   

Supply of Gold slowly grows, but once all bitcoins had been mined, they will start to slowly disappear.
Am I understanding this correctly?

Yes lost is lost*.  No "lost" coins aren't reintroduced.  There is no way to know if a coin is lost or not.  No, it isn't a problem.  And to answer your next question, no the community isn't going to support a hard fork to remine so called "lost coins" that would be theft.



* In theory it is possible someday ECDSA could be weakened through the discovery of a cryptographic flaw.  This would allow individuals (much like gold treasure hunters) to gain access to lost coins.  Of course we have no idea if or when this might happen.

The police might be incompetent.  Grin Is the auction one of those public listings where it'll be in a pallet of 500 HDDs sold as-is?

If you send me the HDD once it's recovered, I'm willing to design, produce, and send a tiny collapsible "anal lawnmower" to keep soap predators out of your buddy, fwiw.

Don't mix your coins someone said isn't legal

This thread is a magnificent trifecta.

1. It is high-level trolling at it's best.

2. It's provides insight into how intricate scams are.

3. A brilliant cautionary tale as to why cold wallets, paper wallets, or brain wallets are so important.

yea i agree with the guy above me. But first go to the cops and offer them a few hundred bucks for it and tell them your friend has family photos and stuff that are invaluable.  Thats alot of cash and it would be worth paying whatever its worth to get it.  Worse case they should be able to tell you what lot it is being sold in do you can buy it

Don't lie to the police.  They have very long memories.
Go to the auction and buy all the computers that are for sale.
Keep your mouth closed.  Keep a neutral poker face.  Act like you are totally indifferent.
If your friend has not told his lawyer this, he should now.




I try to be respectful and informed.

That's hard to believe, he would've had to buy quite some time ago.

Would have had to buy some time ago, making him pretty savvy. 

Then would have had to go to pound-me-in-the-ass prison for stupid shit.  And be stupid enough not to realize the BTC was appreciating in value.

Then only come online now, in a noob post on the noob forum by someone who never posted before.

This.

The story is more believable than there being a female on the forum.

Do like Walter White and Jesse Pinkman and use a giant magnet to get it back!
Uhhhh get what back exactly? They broke in to DESTROY frings laptop.

Can't believe I missed the opportunity to make this reference, with my avatar.  OP, take a huge electromagnet to the evidence locker and suck the private keys out.  Yeah bitch, magnets!!

I think the fact that the OP hasn't returned shows that we outed his/her scam and so there's no reason to continue the story.
