Nothing you can do now.

Why the heck didnt you learn about cold storage?

Leaving key/pass online is NOT cold storage. You learned it a hard way.


Now i expect you to create a new forum account and become a bitcoin hater like.... many already did.

Chao.

why would a hacker gain access to your BTC and only steal "SOME" of it?

maybe he felt bad about robbing the guy clean so he left a little something behind.

OP, why did you e-mail yourself the seed? that's a terrible decision - you should have done cold storage too, so you wouldn't even need to email yourself anything.

i think the same kinds of people lose their coins and post here.. are the ones who don't understand what bitcoin is (plus they don't use cold storage), otherwise i'm not sure wjhy they'd ask for help getting it back, because there's nothing anyone can really do after the coins are gone. that's the nature of bitcon.. you can't reverse a transaction.

Maybe multiple wallets, but he got private key only of some?

BTW: never store passwords of anything worth more than pennies on email. Even print and stick in front of your computer is safer.

i don't know, i don't like stealing from people, but if i really needed money badly and had to do it, i wouldn't take everything. i'd just feel too bad. sometimes i wish i had no conscience.

well it looks like all the funds have been moved from 1BA8FTYVxVnebhxQGzxJWy4Y4QKwsVKEko

hopefully that was you moving the remaining 8 btc.

all i can say to you is something that would have helped, yesterday: cold storage!!

I still don't quite understand how this happened, but my sincere condolences to the OP. That's really harsh.

To everyone else let this be a shining example of how important it is to take security very very seriously!

he made an electrum wallet and then for whatever reason e-mailed himself the seed. he thinks someone got into his e-mail, got ahold of his seed, and withdrew most of his coins.

Did you ever import a private key that could have been exposed?

Any significantly advanced cryptocurrency is indistinguishable from Ponzi Tulips.

I call BS on this. I have never heard of any hack in the history of bitcoin that the hacker did not take all of the BTC from a wallet/website unless they were somehow unable to do so. Looking at the address and the TX of the "theft" I see no reason why the "hacker" would not take the last 8 BTC from the OP.

This is the only flaw on the crypto, the lack of protection for the coin holders, ppl said too bad, this can happen to anyone, I think the developers should work on a way to prevent this actions, Sorry for you lost.
