Hi. I invested in bitcoins at the beginning of 2015, in total it is about 6.7 bitcoins which were then worth about 650 dollars then. And they are worth a lot more now that everyone may know. 🙂
At the same time back in 2015, i installed Electrum wallet and somehow an offline version which meant that I stored the bitcoins on the computer’s hard drive, this offline version was not something I wanted, it just happened by a mistake. Once the bitcoins were sent to my Wallet, it took about 3 days until the hard drive crashed.
A good friend managed to get into the hard drive via the wrong safe mode, and ran a backup of all important files, including the files to Electrum, including my wallet.dat file, which I have understood is a relatively important file.
I bought a new computer and downloaded the files from my backup and tried to restore my wallet, but I could not solve this.
An error message appeared when I tried to access / restore Electrum. When I tried to open the wallet file in a program called something with HEX, (which people had written about in diffrent forums), it stod ”the file is corrupt” according to the program.
I let it all go and more or less forgot this until now. I have read and i was thinking, could the reason why the file apears to be “corrupt” , just because its encrypted? I know the password for the encryption and I have just finally finished syncing the Bitcoin core. But i dont now how to decrypt it, and is my idea about the file issue, possible?
What is my next step to recover my bitcoins?
It is vital that I have access to this money, as I have recently been told that I have less than a year left to live, skeletal cancer that has spread badly, and it cant be cured or stopped, I am 33 years old and I am leaving my wife and two daughters (7 and 12 years) after me.
Due to hospital costs and the fact that I can no longer work, the mountain of debt is growing. I can not leave my wife and family in a financial chaos with debts that my wife will have to live with for the rest of her life.
I appreciate all the tips and and whoever helps me get this fixed, I will compensate you.
I do not want to die with an anxiety over this, the three people I love more than anything else, do not deserve to live with huge debts that is entirely my fault.
I hope this is taken seriously and free from trolls. This is reality,
I compensate the person / persons who help me with this with 20.000$ each. In addition, you can also live with the knowledge that you changing the future of an entire family.
I am a man who stands by my word. Regards, Sam
