    Wow. Maybe look for a slip of paper in the top drawer with the password on it?

  • BStrauss3BStrauss3 Posts: 1,295 ✭✭✭✭

    Except for having a secure copy of the password on paper deposited with his lawyer in the event of his death, he did everything right. Offline storage (cold) so it's less vulnerable to attack, very limited access to the cold wallet, etc.

    It shows how fragile doing things correctly really is...

    I think there will be more to this story. Where is Paul Harvey when we need him?

    All glory is fleeting.
  • Personally I think the guy faked his own death while in India and now has $190 million in cryptocurrency to live the rest of his life like a king.

    Successful transactions with: wondercoin, Tetromibi, PerryHall.

    There is still much more of this story to be told...They will not simply leave millions of dollars floating in cyber space. Cheers, RickO

    Crypto is probably the last thing I would have any trust in. The winners have departed.

    Kind of fun - and sad - to watch people do really stupid things and get squished. There was no money to begin with because there was no backing by economic activity or assets.

    I agree with this. A fool and his money are soon parted.

    When the cyber fad goes poof! there will be no evidence that one has or is holding it. With the present day fiat currency circulating, one can at least stuff a mattress or paper a room when it goes Poof!

    ...he may have gone to the right place to fake his own death but unfortunately it’s the wrong place to cash in that kind of karma...no amount of money will stop what is coming his way...if he’s still breathing ;)

    P. T. Barnum had something to say about these schemes.

    Just got a call today from a guy who states he found a "physical bitcoin" and needed authentication. I told him I couldn't help, and that he needs to call the bitcoin dealer or (after telling me the last one sold for $28K) to list it on ebay.

  • scubafuelscubafuel Posts: 773 ✭✭✭✭

    Everyone can see transactions into / out of that "wallet". That is the beauty of the blockchain. If bitcoins are leaving and he's the only one with the private key, then he's not dead.

    No. The parrot was, indeed, dead.
