3.1 BTC of mine is at the bottom of the sea, more or less.

Got it in 2011, forgot about it until BTC hit 3000 dollars. Spent hours trying to remember the dozen+ character password. Finally overwrote that drive to keep from going mad trying to remember the password as the price of BTC went up.

Then started getting BTC again. lol.

so yeah, that 3.1 BTC fits what you're looking for here. Add it to the tally.

Would it not be possible to take a sum of stale coins - for example all those not moved since end 2010 and then over time learn what fraction of those came alive later. Doing that over a period might suggest what is lost and what fraction is normally forced back into the open after such a long time.

yes, it's possible, even rather simple, to see what cans haven't been moved since a given time, or ever. the challenge is in determining WHY they haven't moved. it's entirely possible the original miner has them and still has ready access to the private keys, meaning they aren't remotely lost.

Thought this might make for an interesting thread...

If you've lost bitcoins (i.e. they're gone forever, completely unrecoverable), post how much you lost, and add it to the running tally.  Right now, the running tally is 0BTC, since I haven't lost any bitcoins.

I recently read a thread about someone losing 0.000001 BTC, and someone else losing 20 BTC.

So person one would write:
+ 0.00001 BTC
= 0.00001 BTC

Person two would write:
+ 20 BTC
= 20.0001 BTC

Etc, etc.  That way we don't have to run through pages and pages of thread to figure out what the running tally of lost bitcoins is.

Make sense?  Good.  Do it.

Starting lost BTC balance:  0.0000000 BTC
playing with some cold wallet method and forgot to save the private key before I rebooted to offline modus.
Luckily I was just testing and this was precisely what I wanted to test.

Claiming to have lost 15,000? Bitcoin? or do you mean USD. Losing USD isnt much of a big deal but losing 15k of bitcoin that would be incredible for everyone else invested in bitcoin except you of course that could possibly triple everyones money



I may forget about some wallet that, who knows? one day when I have the time I have to try to fix it. I have so many wallet lying in various places, different computers, the virtual machine, USB sticks, Appendix Gmail, mobile phone, that I don't know how much bitcoin that I actually "own" again.

I have such huge numbers of wallets lying around in such huge numbers of better places, distinctive PCs, virtual machines, usb sticks, gmail connections, cell phones, that I have no clue what number of bitcoins I really "possess" any longer. I may have disregarded a portion of those wallets, who knows? One of nowadays when I have room schedule-wise I should attempt to clean everything up.

Sometimes i wonder those who had a lot of bitcoins and then they suddenly died, Now their bitcoins are going to be lost forever and most of the time, Its those who started getting bitcoins in the initial stages when it was very easy to mine even with a normal desktop.

Yes of course, we need to add up the known lost bitcoin to save that the coin we lost because of we exchange it for more income or profit to make us profitable,
in short we need to save a coin because it is a better to do when we lost an a coin to still profitable.

This is sad. I saw many comments that telling they lost some serious amount of bitcoin.
I think this is the cause of bitcoin spiking price every year. The circulating supply is reduced unknownly.

Let's say that bitcoin becomes mainstream like we all hope it will, and many years from now a large portion of bitcoins have been lost due to lost computers or destroyed servers.

I lost about 0.02 when I bought OK Cash coin in Bittrex but I dare StopLose and follow airdrop from Eboost. and Bitcoin I get Bitcoin around 0.13.

so my total conclusion is never totally lost Bitcoin, it even increases around 0.11 Satoshi.

TQ for B!

I may or may not have lost ~1300 because of a lost encryption key... Heres to hoping the data recovery company can get my bitlocker key off a dead flash drive.

A friend today told me he just deleted his bitcoin wallet. That included 0.05 BTC I had sent him to play around with. He's not very computer-savvy.

I think that is the concept that should be learn by the investors. It doesn’t mean that you loss something you will give up and be upset.
In order to become successful we should increase our investment and take the risk from it in order to obtained profit in future.
