    Even banks lock dormant accounts.

      I still keep some bitcoins, and the following may seem a bizzare and morally wrong reason:

      I had a business client get hit with a crypto virus demanding bitcoin, with a really short deadline.
      Normally I'd just restore from a backup - but that backup was the night before and they *really needed* the current day's version of a few files.

      So now I keep some bitcoin for that in case it happens again to another client - but still feel dirty for paying it that time.
