I had a bunch when they were $5. I kick myself every single day.

What happened? On an old HDD some where and lost the key to them?

Sounds like there is need for a "Swiss bank account" to hold your bitcoin keys.

  > "Swiss bank account" to hold your bitcoin keys
Sounds like a startup idea

-----


Like https://coinbase.com/ ?

No you don't understand this is different - do a kickstarter promted by a viral video and we will get at least 10% of the market, and then Google and Facebook will fight to acquihire us!

Who wants to be my technical co-founder?

Some bitcoin wallet clients, like Electrum, can recover your wallet from a seed that you can write down or email to yourself.

Electrum: http://electrum.org/

Deterministic keypair generation isn't such a bad idea, but to email yourself the seed to your BTC keys and all transaction history? That sounds like an awfully bad idea...

-----


no fractional option?

I tried 'mining', got to 0.00003 and realized it would take 3 years to earn a single coin. Not even worth the energy its consuming.

-----


Yeah I'm also in the decimal point camp.
