I installed block chain in my phone, and sent that much to my phone, and I lost my phone.

this one may not count, technically. i mean, its a safe bet that it's gone, but in the most precise sense, the phone is not with you, but the phone, with the private key, is with someone. thus, not lost.

I have something similar, I have a older computer which has some coin I earned from faucet, clicking ad etc, I think about 0.01, then I bought a new PC, old PC is donated,  in the most precise sense, I guess someone else has the computer now.

Since the wallet is encrypted, the person has the PC has no password. I think it is safe to say

May have lost 0.05 BTC sent by the faucet...
OMG, this is such an awesome thread for this post alone.  Can you imagine getting a payout like that from a faucet these days?  How much could you claim a day back in 2011 or whenever it was that faucets started?  I was not into btc yet back then.

In January 2011 there was only one faucet that I know of, run by Gavin.

I got my first 0.05 BTC from it:



Edit: I don't remember if there was a daily limit, but Bitcoin was worth so little at the time that it didn't seem worth abusing it. 0.05 BTC was worth around $0.02 at the time.

+0.5 BTC

I was testing out some stuff back when bitcoin had significantly low value (around $20/BTC).
Sent them to a null address by accident when I was messing around with some c++ code (I'm a C# person now).

I got my first 0.05 BTC from it:

back in the day, the faucet also displayed the message along the lines of:


Weren't you offering 5 BTC before?  
with a link  furhter explaining that, indeed, it was sending 5BTC before, but at *that* time,
1BTC had only been worth around 0.005$

And about a daily limit: yes, there was some sort of abuse control in place, complete with a captcha
and some denigrating message about those that abuse a faucet offering such a little value.

so, yeah, there's some nostalgia for you.

back on topic, there must be quite a few of those 5 BTC faucet payouts lost forever, which we'll never able to write off conclusively.

You can put down for another 0.4 or 0.5 from me.  I can even dig up the old address for it where it still remains.  I just dont have the key fir it anymore and never will now.

yeah i had some occassions when i lost some bitcoins too because of the forgetting of the private keys of my bitcoin addresses that i wrote on paper as i was still just a newbie in all this stuff

i see that the rules are not working like it should because people are just not posting the whole sum so i will do that too, i have lost like 0.5 bitcoins with the private keys

So, assuming the 15,000 BTC guy just lost access but someone *else* now has access to it, then since the last update:

134634.39864659+0.0004+0.02+40+0.009395+0.015+0.008+0.01+0.01+0.03+0.5+0.5

= 134675.50144159

+ 3.5 from here:

Well I don't have any exact record of lost coins as I have lost many times in gambling in the past and I think it would be around 0.5 btc but not more then that and now I wish I could have really saved those coins for this stage.

You're coins are not completely gone as they are in the hands of the scammer.

I have 0.06BTC in 2 wallets that I can't access anymore as I have deleted them both by accident this year.

No doubt the coins are in hands of the scammers but he has ultimately lost his coins as he won't able to recover that amount again as coins gone from wallet are gone forever.

It's not about losing coins as in getting scammed, or losing them with gambling. It's all about coins never coming back into circulation.

It's something you have to forget about it, because if you're still waiting and angry against loss you get when early bitcoin then it will give bad effect to your future. because it is sure you will do something with very tight and could not think properly while doing something about bitcoin or associated with bitcoin

Wow that's insane!!!  Shocked First time I come across this thread, I've been reading some of the comments and it's freaking unbelievable how many Bitcoins some people have lost. Of course it might not all be true/accurate, I've seen a few people post Bitcoins they've lost in scams which don't really count because they're still spendable. Still, this is crazy, I wonder how people who lost 1000's of Bitcoins back when Bitcoin wasn't worth a lot feel about it today.

Ok, are yo trying to meant that the Bitcoin just vanish into the space or how. Because to my own understanding if bitcoin is not in someone's wallet then it must be in another persons wallet, but if there is any way bitcoin can disappear in to space et us know about it.
