In 2013 I had 1.5 but coins on bitinstant. The bitcoin lost money and it was at 73$. Since it was hard to deal with I let it go. I don’t even care to get it out for less than 150$

But now it’s skyrocketed. The site is shut down though. Is there anything I can do to find it?

  • You might have made a backup of your wallet and stored that on your drive. It may contain a private key... – Christiaan Westerbeek Dec 13 '17 at 21:06
  • If you don't own the private key, you don't own the coins. As sad as this is, you will have to accept the coins are lost. This is a very common occurrence and many of us have similar stories. Always use a offline wallet and back up your private keys! – Andrei Savin Dec 13 '17 at 22:55
