bitcoin core – Brother died and I am sole survivor..just found out he has a wallet. How do I go about getting his bit coins I have no info

I have no info..

Without information, you cannot get control of any Bitcoin your brother possessed.

You need some details of his wallet or of his account with a Bitcoin exchange.

How do I retreive

If he looked after his own money in a Bitcoin wallet on a computer or phone, you need to be able to log in to that device and run the wallet program and enter any password he set on the wallet. He may have kept a note of his wallet’s “private key” or its 12, 18 or 24-word “recovery phrase” written down somewhere safe. E.g. on paper or stamped metal in a safe. If so, you can use this information on a different computer to create a new wallet that controls the same money.

If he had an account with a business that looked after his money for him, you’ll need to find out the name of that business and his login details. It is possible you would find some details in his old email messages.

I have death certificate.

That might be of use if his money was in an exchange and you know his account name but not his account password. You or the executor of his estate would need to contact the exchange directly about this.


You will be contacted by people offering to help you. 99% of these will be scammers intending to trick you into trusting them with any details you find, or who will trick you into paying invented recovery fees but who will never give you access to your brother’s money. Be very very careful.

Where to get OHLC data for Bitcoin from all active exchanges now that cryptodatadownload.com has died?

Recently, I found what was a gold mine of data: https://www.cryptodatadownload.com/data/

Sadly, since the last 10 days, since 2020-11-20, the data has stopped updating. There is no mention of this on their website and they don’t respond to e-mails. I’m left guessing as to whether it will ever resume. Typical.

For example, if you download the “BTC/USD [Daily]” CSV file on https://www.cryptodatadownload.com/data/bitstamp/ , and look inside it, you will see that the data stopped 10 days ago. It used to update every day.

The last line was:

1605830400.0,2020-11-20,BTCUSD,17825.47,18240,17755.81,18125.99,2103.36,37892614.86

I searched the Internet and asked around for ages to find that data source. All the others that I’ve ever found have been garbage or want money from me. I don’t have money to pay. I just want to keep track of the Bitcoin “OHLC” prices for each day for each active Bitcoin exchange.

This seems like the kind of information that multiple “crypto geeks” would happily provide as a public service. After all, I’m not needing per-minute or even per-hour data, but only per-day.

web – Why has the Internet died? Is there some sort of new Internet that I’ve missed?

I send e-mails to mailing lists. No reply for weeks upon weeks. Dead.

I ask questions on Stack Exchange. No replies. Ignored. Just trolls and toxic people left.

I left freenode because every room was a ghost town in the last few years.

Every search query results in irrelevant garbage and/or eternal reCAPTCHAs.

Fake sites, registration forms that don’t do anything, “phone verification”, “upload photo id to load page”, etc.

The “dark web” doesn’t seem to actually exist at all. I do have Tor browser installed but there are no .onions to visit either.

Nothing seems to work. Nothing (worthwhile) seems to be used at all.

I’ve looked all over for some sort of “new Usenet”, but there is no such thing. All those decentralized projects are minimal and have zero users, in perpetuity.

I feel like I’m going insane. What has happened? How can there be far less activity on the Internet today than it was 30 years ago? How is that logically possible?

I might as well be offline completely. I basically feel like I am.

dnd 5e – Can a druid of spores revive a zombie as a reaction if the humanoid died last turn?

There is a class feature for spores druids called Fungal infestation, and in the rules it is stated:

If a beast or humanoid that is Small or Medium dies within 10 feet of you, you can use your reaction to animate it, causing it to stand up immediately with 1 hit point. The creature uses the zombie statistics. It remains animate for 1 hour, after which time it collapses and dies.

So, if a bandit dies within 10 feet of a druid of spores, and the druid doesn’t revive him (already spent reaction on the turn or whatever) can he use the reaction to revive next turn?

Remember when Trump attacked Obama relentlessly during H1N1 and Ebola where only 12k died? Don’t you miss his leadership right about now?

Not even a little bit. I also remember Benghazi, Fast & Furious, IRS targets conservative organizations, NSA mass surveillance, Bowie Bergdahl swap, Secret Service scandal, DOJ seizes journalist records, Solyndra, The Iran deal, Uranium One, Clinton email scandal, AP wiretaps, Trump Tower wiretaps, FISAGATE and of course Obamacare.

Why are most democrats so scared to admit Hydroxychloroquine works? This lawmaker almost died and was saved by the medication?

People like you, and Trump, are ignoring what the FDA is saying:

“FDA is concerned that hydroxychloroquine and chloroquine are being used inappropriately to treat non-hospitalized patients for coronavirus disease (COVID-19) or to prevent that disease. We authorized their temporary use only in hospitalized patients with COVID-19 when clinical trials are not available, or participation is not feasible, through an Emergency Use Authorization (EUA). These medicines have a number of side effects, including serious heart rhythm problems that can be life-threatening.

We have reviewed case reports in the FDA Adverse Event Reporting System database, the published medical literature, and the American Association of Poison Control Centers National Poison Data System concerning serious heart-related adverse events and death in patients with COVID-19 receiving hydroxychloroquine and chloroquine, either alone or combined with azithromycin or other QT prolonging medicines. These adverse events included QT interval prolongation, ventricular tachycardia and ventricular fibrillation, and in some cases, death. We are continuing to investigate these safety risks in patients with COVID-19 and will communicate publicly when more information is available.”

Experts in Epidemiology on Covid19, say Deaths have been under counted by 20,000 and 100,000 have actually died. Is Trump Under-Counting?

No, you can’t rely on any of the numbers. It is all done for show.

They are counting the number of people who die WITH COVID-19 not just the people who die FROM COVID-19.

SO, if someone has a long term cancer condition and they go into hospital their death is no longer counted as a cancer death if they also have COVID-19 – even if no-one knew they had COVID-19.

It is like checking if any dead person has blue eyes then you write down “blue eyes” as cause of death. Yes, hey had blue eyes but they actually dies from something else.

All the numbers will be too high.

Just look how the pneumonia deaths fell. Basically, they were no longer counting them as pneumonia deaths but counting them as COVID-19 deaths instead. Same for flu deaths etc.

Why does Trump care more about Kim Jong-un's health than Americans who have died from coronavirus?

This is not entirely true, but hate will believe what it does. A more specific question would be why Cuomo gets so much press, gets so much applause, and even talks about replacing Biden as president. If NY has had so many deaths, infection rates are so common. Compared to Newsom, Ca had it at the very beginning, when little was known. Still, he did a wonderful job of keeping infection rates down and deaths down. Much better job with less initial knowledge than Cuomo.

macbook pro – MBP in early 2015 (A1502) died!

I used my MacBook without any problems two days after turning it on. When I went to the boat it was completely dead. When I tried to charge it there was no light.

I left it on the charger for 20 minutes and returned to a solid green light. I did an SMC reset that reset it to amber. The MacBook started and worked fine for about 4 minutes. The battery was registered to 32% (I think it's only about 420 cycles). It died suddenly and returned to a solid green light.

I let it charge up where I noticed it was alternating between amber and green, but was then permanently green. Still no trunk, so the charger took off and put it back on and it's been dead since!

Any help would be appreciated! I have ordered the parts needed to open and restart the battery.
