Do I actually have no bitcoin?
« on: December 29, 2017, 02:33:59 PM »
My dim memory says that years ago I thought I had purchased some bitcoin, but now I cannot find it.

- On a computer I acquired after the supposed purchase of bitcoin, which had all the user data copied to it from older computers, I found a "bitcoin" folder. This folder contained bitcoin-0.8.5-win32-setup.exe.

- I ran bitcoin-0.8.5-win32-setup.exe. It took a LONG time to sync, but finally finished recently. It showed no bitcoin.

- I closed the bitcoin program. In a sub-folder "walletsaved" was a wallet.dat file. I put that file in the place where the original wallet.dat file was located (found by a search of C:). I re-ran bitcoin-0.8.5-win32-setup.exe. It finished syncing in a short time. It showed no bitcoin.

- I also found info in a text file for login to mtgox.com, libertyreserve.com, and goldexpay.com. None of those logins work now.

Is there anything else I should do?

I think is practically impossible to recover what you are looking for, I have done some research and it's leading no where of hop. But you can always search more on this from google.

There are some programs that restore information. You can try using their services, maybe it'll work. I'd personally give it a go =)

What is your Bitcoin-address?

You can check out your coins, for example, on this site: blockchain.info

I, unfortunately, do not know more ways to restore access to your wallet(

I've heard such stories. Many bitcoins for these reasons are lost forever. People bought them at one time and simply forgot about them, and the computer where the wallet was is long gone.

Unfortunately, even if you know exactly where the bitcoin was sent to, it will not be possible to return it, because there is no return sending in the network of blockchain.
