During my IVA I mined a few bitcoins, seeing as I couldn’t really afford to have much of a social life. Back then the values were pennies but now they have gone up so much. I never declared these as they were worth less than £2. I have completed my Iva but could they come after me for a portion of the bitcoin money?

As these cryptocurrencies were "purchased" during the IVA, with money from your allowances and were, then, penny shares status, I doubt they would have been interested and probably wouldn't even know about them if you cashed them now --- if, indeed, you can cash them in -- has anyone actually realised real cash dollars from them at current rates, apart from those at the top ? In any event, I would have thought that they would have been only entitled to the face value when the IVA ended -- which, again, would not have been an astronomical figure at that time.

Caveat: All guesses and conjecture as the rise in cryptocurrency is a new phenomenon and how they are to be dealt with hasn't been tested.

Depends on the value...If material sum probably falls under the windfall/after acquired assets clause and vest in the IVA.
