Sad for a Bitcoin investor when he has to lose a lot of money. The problem because of a simple problem, he lost his hard drive is gone.
This was revealed from an anonymous post on the Bitcoin subreddit. He claims to have bought 10,000 Bitcoins in early 2010 and spent £50.
He ended up keeping the Bitcoin keys on the laptop after transferring them from the USB. But after graduating he forgot about the Bitcoin he bought.
Four years later, cryptocurrencies are gaining traction. Then the man remembered about the Bitcoin being bought and went back to look for it.
He hoped to get a lot of money because of the soaring value of Bitcoin at that time.
But unfortunate when he came home to try to find his old laptop and it turned out to be broken for years. Next he finds the device thrown away by his mother.
His 10,000 Bitcoins are currently worth 300 million pounds. “I was completely passed out, angry, confused, shocked, in denial, sad, angry and many other emotions,” he wrote in 2019, quoted by The Sun, Thursday (12/23/2021).
The post also claims to be suffering from a ‘mental breakdown’ and suffering from depression. Because he feels every day remembering he could be a rich man.
He was even angry with his mother for throwing the laptop away. Bitcoin’s rise has also deepened the depression.
“I’m still broke, I still live with my parents, I work, but at work. But in a job I hate and have friends but we don’t talk much, and life isn’t the same as it used to be,” he explained.
