Wow, am I out of the loop. I have an old Bitcoin wallet with about a bitnickel in it (is that a term? .05 bitcoin?), but it's from early 2014. And I have the 0.8.6 software. It occurs to me that I should start figuring out how the heck to get anything out of it...  and the dogecoin, and the litecoin, and the HBC (was that hobbitcoin?)...

You can create an account on Coinbase and sell it for USD. Shouldn't be too difficult if you know how to send a BTC transaction.

Or maybe find someone you know who is willing to buy it off of you. :)

So I got my backed-up wallet file copied into place and rescanned successfully, and it has .17btc in it. What a shame it doesn't let me use the password I had written down for it.   I'm reinstalling the old wallet software hoping it will let me decrypt the wallet or something.

If you have your backed up wallet re-scanned successfully, doesn't that mean you have access to spend the coins?

Yep, scans the wallet, shows me the transactions and balance. It asks for the passphrase when I try to send coin though, and doesn't like what I type.
