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:

https://www.reddit.com/r/Bitcoin/comments/4pjkyi/after_3_years_im_off_the_bitcoin_bandwagon/

=


A mini bump for this thread...

BTC 134679.00144159 is close to a cool $ 77,200,000 USD @ 573.2 USD according to preev.com on the 1st of September 2016.

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.

These  thread  is  not accurate though because  lots of  people  for sure didnt see this   thread  and  cant able to  post  on their  lost bitcoin on here. Maybe  we could  say  its a partial count  but  i could really say that  lost  bitcoins are  too much  which already cost  millions of dollars  on the current price as of now.

I don't know the known lost Bitcoin (added on this thread) but as mine too.

I've lost about 0.02 on my copay wallet (I'd the backup, still I can't spend from there), 0.006 due to my HDD failure and 0.006 due to my pendrive failure (where I've kept my wallet's backup)
So totally I've lost 0.02+0.006+0.006 = 0.032 BTC!

Thats not lost bitcoins, thats spent bitcoins which are still in circulation.

 It would be good if someone could go through the posts to update how many we are at with only the information we have in this thread. I would do it but i cant update it anyway since im not op.

When I was a newbie I lost 0.1 btc in doubler site as I thought I would be able to double my coins in few hours and from that point till today I am just waiting  Angry

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
Yes, it is highly important to let bygone be the bygones, when someone keeps remembering a misfortune that befalls him or her without letting it go, it becomes a source of worry and create possible future problems to the person. Just forget about everything and move on, you have a brighter future ahead.

Add 5 to the count. Was moving some coins back in 2011/12 (setting up them in lots of 5 per address) and had the dat file eat itself, was always a tomorrow project to get them back.

Sitting here Christmas day and figured I would fire up pywallet and have a go.

Got 4 of the 5 private keys & addresses back.
Last one does not even seem to exist. Sucks to be me.

Good thing I wrote them off in my mind back in 2013 last time it was this high in value.

I never had a whole bitcoin before. I probably lost about 10000 satoshis from trying different faucets though. When I was starting out I didn't know they'd all require 20k something to be send to the wallet. I try to get up to that but would eventually give up and try a new faucet. And I tried many faucets I can't even remember them all now. I guess other newbies have gone through this, imagine how much has been lost in this manner.

How much  in total till now?

I was going to wait until the first of January (ie three months since my last update) if you can wait? Otherwise top of thise page down should give a close estimate.

READY FOR A TREE CHANGE? Only $179,000 (AU$) for a 13.06 hectare (32 acres) fully timbered, secluded block in South-East Qld. Various house sites, predominantly north facing, halfway between Gympie & Tin Can Bay, 10 mins drive to local primary school https://www.facebook.com/nevkanerealestate/posts/1583146505116067

They weren't added because these coins weren't lost. Someone has access to these coins and moved them.

How do we know that the counts are right and not just manufactured by the one who posted. Aside from the let us also not set aside that though they lost their bitcoins but somebody from the site has claimed it.  But I dont want to be negative on this matter, I guess this counting was not meant to be exact but somehow just to check if there are more people experience losing their bitcoins.

A better way to lost bitcoins would be to list all the public keys involved, on a thread or blog or whatever. The list could be updated easily, including removing erroneous listings if coins did move from any of the listed addresses.

Someone with a bit of coding know-how could probably tie into an API with something like Blockchain.info and keep a running tally of all the BTC associated with the addresses in the list.

One could also break it down into several sub-lists for clarity:

1. Known BURN addresses (like the Counterparty address).
2. Cases where it is pretty solid that the private keys have been lost (such as the early HD with 7500 BTC that was tossed).
3. Cases where coins are believed or claimed to be lost, but it is not confirmed or there is some slim chance of recovery.

EDIT: Another reason to track this with the list of public keys involved is to avoid accidental repetition from multiple sources referencing the same lost bitcoins.

Just a controversy perspective heads up here :
Bitcoins will never be lost. They will stay for ever within an address.

There are only 2^160 possible bitcoin addresses (at least with respect to current encryption algorithm), so after (for example) 500 years, people may start getting OLD bitcoin addresses. At the time, they may find access to our lost bitcoins.

A friend lost 2.9 BTC a week ago because he formatted a hard drive and did not back anything up. $3000.00 locked in the blockchain.  i created a post for him on this forum, but after him taking the HD to specialist, the BTC was no able to be recovered.
