It’s been quite a journey. In 2015, Austin Heller asked if anyone was spending their (fractional) coin gift.
Thanks to generous help from bitcoininthevp, I was finally able to re-access mine yesterday evening after a long period of dormancy and seed words that weren’t yielding anything. Of course, it was technical glitches that kept me from cashing out when my wallet’s contents were worth a tenth of what they were last night.

I immediately ordered some (fractional) gold with a vendor that takes bitcoin just so that i know i’m not dreaming. The payment was acknowledged about a ½ hour later. I usually use a paper check, so that was good.

The whole point of Marc de Mesel’s giveaway was to spark an interest in crypto. He’s still out there doing his thing on twitter, youtube and elsewhere. BCH, read.cash and all kinds of stuff.

I haven’t really made up my mind about cryptocurrencies, but I think I’m going to hold on to the remaining coin. I’ve got a sliver of ethereum via an etf and if I buy anything else it’ll be via PayPal, which I now like. That’s enough for me.
Feels like the end of the everything rally.

I'm still trying to retrieve my sliver of a bitcoin. You're a lucky man, dualstow.

It seems like there are a few slivers of bitcoin around this forum still.

I am happy to consult via private message here or secure email to help you get your bitcoin into your own control, or even buy gold or amazon gift cards with them.

My fees are 0%.

bitcoininthevp is a good bro.
[It is a] fact beyond question that soldiers' battles, where one side is entrenched and invisible and the other advancing in attack, are things of the past, except in a wooded country or where all preliminary movements are concealed. We had soldiers' battles here, but by fighting them the lesson has been taught which the world will learn.
