How much BTC do you guys think has been lost by people (forgetting seed phrase for wallet, losing hard storage, sending to wrong wallet address). I hear stories of people who mined BTC way back and ended up losing their storage device somewhere or throwing it out by mistake, i feel bad for them but also cant help but think how much of an impact this would have on adopting BTC as a global currency.
