If you had it on testnet then it’s not real ether.
You need to describe better how did you lose it

@moneyteam79 You can either mine coins yourself, or buy or be gifted them by other people, either directly or through exchanges. They all have ultimately come either from mining, or from the original pre-mine.

@everyone re:token example Could someone elucidate on the function approveAndCall, the line
tokenRecipient spender = tokenRecipient(_spender)
It seems that spender is not typed, is this an example of type deduction? Further, by what solidity mechanism is the address _spender being associated with contract tokenRecipient? ie. Why the parens ?
