A Reddit user told a sad story about how he lost a huge fortune in cryptocurrency. In early 2010, he bought 10,000 bitcoins for about $ 80.
At the time, his college roommates convinced him to keep the wallet keys on his laptop. After graduating from college, I forgot about the investment and my old laptop, which remained in my parents’ house.
In 2014, when cryptocurrencies began to actively grow, the 25-year-old remembered about the investment and came home for his laptop. As a result, it turned out that the old laptop, which had not turned on for several years, his mother decided to just throw it away with a bunch of old junk. At the moment, the bitcoin rate is about 40 thousand dollars, that is, 10,000 bitcoins is about 400 million dollars.
“I literally fainted, I was angry, confused, shocked, denied, sad, I was angry,” he wrote, adding that he began to suffer from mental illness and depression, thinking every day that he could would be a multimillionaire.
Despite his attempts to get his life back on track, the rising price of bitcoin only exacerbated his depression: “I’m broke, I still live with my parents, I have a job, but I hate it. I have friends, but we don’t communicate much. My life is not what it used to be. “
Some Reddit members doubt that his story is not fiction, but the guy claims that this is the truth.
