Finding bitcoin in old wallets

Recommended Posts

So i was cleaning my email drafts this morning and came upon an email with old wallets and private keys (not secure i know!) but then upon checking the wallets i noticed that some still had bitcoin amounting to 0.13BTC! It's not a huge amount but just wanted to share how happy it feels to suddenly find bitcoin from old wallets

Have you ever had the same experience?

You're lucky to see bitcoin in your old wallet.

The same thing happened to me but my biggest mistake was that I could not back up my wallet. Reason for not being able to open my wallet again.

until now I am still searching and hope I find my bitcoin and litcoin private wallet that I have kept. Really I really hope this is one of my bad experiences and also I can find my 2f recovery key in one of the exchanges because there are my assets that are quite valuable for this if it is thawed.

If you appreciate your investment, you should manage your private key properly.

You should contact the exchange support . And I don't think that's a big problem because any customer service always answers me.

You are really lucky. If for me it's a very large number.Unfortunately I just entered the world of crypto in late 2016. And there aren't many satoshi that I can gather first. So I don't find out more about my previous wallet

Yeah, but I lost a lot of bitcoin when the bitcoin was low. I didn't give it much value. Now I am confined to losing it. I think a lot is exposed like this problem. This is life. I should be more careful not to lose it again.

Never had that happen to me. I was too late to the bitcoin mining party. Wish I had kept up with technology back then, but then again, who would have thought this was ever going to be popular.

Good for you, but in future NEVER ever keep or send your keys with email anywhere.
It can be hacked super easy, and you will lose all your crypto.

Haha sweet topic for a post here. I have found some a few times but never very much. I have a friend who seems to find these old ones like you and he has a few times found more than 1 btc. Crazy how we can forget about our Bitcoins. 

Some people threw their harddisks includes hundreds of bitcoins. They ended up in recycle center to check if they could find those! 🤣

That is usually some of the best morning gifts someone can get 👍 that was nice at least just above a $1k worth and also many have said already, emails, goggle drive and any other online saving is not the best way to keep your PKs and passwords, write ✍️ them down in multiple places.

great stuff! it never happened to me with BTC, but it is almost the same as when you dress something you didn't wear for a long time and you find a bill in one of the pockets... instant happiness 🙂

hopefully I'll have this experience with some forgotten altcoin as soon as the alt season comes 😂

😁 I have same situation but I did not find that much (it is solid amount).

I know for cryptocurrency long time and I try a lot of different things and use many wallets, and after some times when I slow down with cryptocurrency  I start to check one by one wallets sites etc. And I find in Xapo around 0.025 BTC which I get before when I use faucets, I was very stunned when I see that is balance not zero. 😁

that will be the real happiness when you find the bitcoin in the old wallet, but some peoples dont have login details if they find bitcoin in the old wallets, they forget email, password and even they dont have private key of the account, i saw too many peoples.

This is a really enjoyable experience, like finding a large amount of money in your old clothes after you forgot it at all. It happened to me more one time, but not too mach when I returned to the wallets or exchanges I had previously registered and found that I still have some good coins.

رجل محظوظ. إذا وجدت My Bitcoin المفقودة كنت أقفز وأشعر بأنني مبارك. فقط احفظه وانتظر سعر Bitcoin يرتفع إلى 35000 دولار وسوف يعطيك 4540 $. أعتقد أنه يستحق كل هذا العناء لانتظار غلاء الأسعار فوق.

 

What is the fate of lost coins from Bitcoin
Do you look again?

I have had similar experience but that was with ERC-20 Wallet address that I used for some bounties after sometime tokens that I wasn't even aware were in the wallet got listed on exchanges and some of those token worth quite a fortune.

congratulation.  I think it was worth a little while ago but now it's quite good, sometimes the great thing is you don't know about it soon, if you remember it early you probably sell it soon 😀

You are very lucky, able to find Bitcoin that has been lost and forgotten. I have no such experience. but what I want to know, what kind of business do you have to save Bitcoin, do you trade crypto or from the faucet site and what year do you save in the wallet.
