Since BTC has a cap of 21 million, is there a way of telling how many have been lost due to forgotten/lost keys, seed phrases etc?Saturday, May 14th, 2022 at 23:52 #273635Saturday, May 14th, 2022 at 23:53 #273632DingFTMFW
No.Saturday, May 14th, 2022 at 23:55 #273633WritingFun8769
you could maybe make an estimate, because all of the coins are still on the blockchain; they’re more frozen than anything. you’d really just see coins that never move, eventually you’d have addresses that haven’t sent or received (but mostly sent because that address could still accidentally receive bitcoin but not send) for 10 years, then 50, then eventually those coins won’t have moved for a century, etc.Sunday, May 15th, 2022 at 00:46 #273634FirmestSprinkles

You could guess. Something like coins that haven’t moved in x years. But that’s a shot in the dark. In short technically, these no way of tell what wallets are “active “
