Thanks, dualstow!
How would one go about finding this bitcoin and cashing it out? Does anyone still own their's?
Was it on mtgox.com, which went under?

I don’t think it was on Mt Gox. I still have mine, though I’ve been meaning to cash it in.

I see on Nov 18, 2013, I urged Marc to spend his bitcoin already because it had reached US$600. ! O0

I will read the pm in a sec. I just googled my wallet string which I found on page 7. Looks like I have 56 transactions and a balance of zero. Funny, I should have only one transaction:Marc’s gift. Hmm.

Yes. I see how to get to my account and I click on make payment. It takes me to a page where I can select the amount of the bitcoin to sell and then instructs me to copy a link to my clipboard to use to send the payment. After that I don't know how to proceed. I would like to send the payment to myself somehow, but in the form of actual cash (say to Paypal if its easiest). I can get the link to make the payment but then what should I do to send the payment to myself? Thanks.

False alarm; I was reading it wrong. Even though I googled my own wallet string, that seems to be Marc’s that I was looking at. (Zero bitcoins? Hope he has many wallets). I guess that’s the way the ledger works.

Turns out I still have the 0.1 btc. I’m sure I read that wrong a few years ago, too.

Ended up being a quite generous gift! To hold or to sell? (sell)

dualstow, it's possible to look at how much cryptocurrency other people have if you know how?

I don't know if I'm looking at the complete picture, but it seems like if you know someone's wallet string, you can google it. It does show the balance as zero. Now I doubt Marc has zero, but maybe that particular wallet does.
I really know very little about bitcoin having done only one transaction: passively receiving fractional bitcoin from Marc.
(I'm waiting on verification from a trading site, but it appears to be out of order this week. Well, not appears. Customer service wrote back to me and confirmed it). So much for cashing out in a hurry. Maybe it'll be fixed when 1 bitcoin = $45. O0

We need to ask someone who knows what they're talking about. Where's that bitcoin_in_the_vp person? Or Pointed Stick?

Don't forget to claim your capital gains on Bitcoin sales. Especially if it is through coinbase. I expect they will get audited if they haven't already.
