I've read a few press stories recently of lost/thrown away/forgotten passwords which mean hundreds of millions worth of bitcoin are lost forever. One guy has used 9 of his 10 attempts to retrieve $240 million of coins. Another hid his in a fishing rod which was thrown away while he was in jail. There must be loads of folk in similar situations.

I heard that $240m one the other day (if it was the web guy paid in BC several years ago for some work), at the time he had used 8 attempts at the time.

What a sickening feeling it must be

I remember years ago signing up for some crypto currency that gave out $15 worth for signing up, can't for the life of me remember which one it was now. Got some for me and my kids, just have to hope it was one of the ones that bombed as there were loads of them around about 8 years ago.

Yes, it was him (8 out of 10 he's used). Another programmer tweeted him saying he'll unlock it for 10%. Would you trust some random on twitter?? :roll:

I had an EA that was successful for a while with CMC and MT4. But nothing in the last few months.

CMC have always been good for me!
