This should really be in the off topic section. I would also advise anyone reading this to not answer the OPs question as if you were to reveal how many bitcoin you own/control then it could subject you to a number of attacks, as an attacker would know that attempting to hack you could have some benefit, verses attempting to hack a random person may or may not have potential benefit.

You shouldn't be viewing BitcoinTalk with the same computer you use to store your BTC.

Problem solved.
This is not even a computer level issue, it is a personal identity level issue. If someone were to DOX you, after you posted that you have "x" BTC then anyone would know that you have that level of BTC and would likely attempt to launch an attack to steal your coins, either by hacking or by breaking into your house to steal your computers (among other potential attacks).
This is why you use strong passwords and encrypt your backups. It's only an issue for people who are shit at keeping important data secure. Which, yes, may be the majority.

We know that certain people here have hundreds of coins. Have we heard about them getting hacked, kidnapped or having their house robbed? We do not live in a Bond movie.

In the interest of putting my personal safety where my mouth is, I have at the moment about 15. Few more every month until the next rally. Come at me hackbros.
People's houses get robbed all the time because criminals think they have jewelery that can be sold, or because someone has cash that can be used to buy drugs.

The answer for me is never enough. Smiley

I try to be content with my holdings, and have been able to accumulate more through trading, but it's always a kick in the pants to think that I knew about bitcoin in 2010 and didn't buy until 2013....

At least it was summer 2013. Grin

Passwords are in my brain. Can't really hack that...yet.

Breaking into my house? Bring a pistol...because you're going to need it.

I hope for your sake that you have used sufficient randomization in what I am assuming are brain wallets.
You'd be surprised at how well many seemingly "random" words, even with misspelling, can be brute forced.

the chance that he forgot that pass is bigger than everything else, sometime you think you have memorized it but you wake one day really tired or something and puff, you can't remember it anymore

True, that's why using an 8 word Diceware passphrase is recommended.

I've often thought of using a Brainwallet but if something ever happened to me my family wouldn't have access to those coins.

The answer to the original question: Not enough. Last year people were content with $100 bitcoins. Seemed like a pretty even number. Just kidding, price shot up 10x.

Not a brainwallet you dips. An offline wallet with a strong password. Safer than any bank these days.

Look inside yourself, and you will see that you are the bubble.

Unless your reply was something less than 0.01BTC, in which case if they dox you they will probably just ignore your coins.  Smiley

Letter S indicates that you are being sarcastic I assume, otherwise, I hope you get them back eventually.

Ugh, i'm really poor compared to the other forum users. :\ thought i d be atleast in the upper 50% with my 5-10 btc

Some people have a lot of BTC here...but I would still go out on a limb and say that you are easily in the top 50% with 5-10BTC holdings
