Correct me if I'm mistaken, but I think you're leaving Bitcoin as a major participant or programmer or coder or services developer. The actual bitcoins in your wallet that belong to you, you should get to keep it.

If you can't trust that you will retain it when you move (because your computer or laptop can get lost or compromised) and you can't afford to have it on paper, then the best way would be to send the bitcoins to the people here.

My suggestion is to consolidate it into one (or a few) private address, print that out, and keep it with your passport. You're not going to lose that. You could also just email it to yourself, encrypted of course.

If you just let it go, then of course, no one else will ever have access to the bitcoins, and it will be eaten up or absorbed by the bitcoin economy.

Yes, whatever I don't donate away to people I will keep in cold storage.
I already have some keepsakes like a 10 BTC Casascius silver coin with the extra gold plating.

I am voluntarily donating the coins I hold as a gesture of kindness.  No one is "forcing" me to give them away, so I am keeping the coins I want to keep.

Ah, so this isn't the first ponzi you've run? xD

On a more serious note, I do not think pirate is running a ponzi nor a money laundering operation, in case anyone was wondering. Wink

Since you're leaving anyway, no reason to butter me up. Smiley

Anyway, I wish you luck in your travels.  See you in a few months. Tongue

Wasn't me buttering up anyone, only stating my opinion on a rather controversial topic.

And I've still not reconfigured my miners yet.  Tongue
I'm sorry to see another valued member of the community go, and be sure to come back when bitcoins trade above $30 again!  Cheesy
Best of luck to your career and future endeavours!

Hello,

I am looking to become more involved with the bitcoin community and have already built a small GPU farm and established some good credit here and there.  I am not quitting Bitcoin EVER, in fact I am planning my own BTC venture soon.

If it may help at all, I would like to step up and deal with any matters you are involved in if all parties can agree. Just an offer.

You could PM me with some details, or if surely, I am way out of my league, just ignore me.

Best of luck to you, please don't quit.

You could just be less active, right?  In any case, you would always be welcomed back.  Smiley

This will just be an overarching statement to those who have posted here and those who have PMed me about taking over my ventures:
No. I will find suitable people who I know and trust and who I feel are competent to continue them in the right direction.  If your name doesn't come to my mind naturally and you have to pitch the idea yourself, then I obviously don't know/trust you well enough to hand over such ventures.

You are still keeping a little stash that you can tuck away "for a rainy day", right?

If you still wanna unload some BTC, the address in my signature line would accept it. No donation is too small or too large!

Buy a TREZOR! Premier BTC hardware wallet. If you're reading this, you should probably buy one if you don't already have one. You'll thank me later.
