    For old times sake I’d like to add: “I lost the rest of them in a boating accident”.

    Hard not to dwell on the past.... i sold 381BTC for $10 each back in the day to cover the cost of mining them as it was a project. I sold my last one at $22k ish to pay off my credit card and outstanding car loan so now my only debt is my house.
    Zero debt is my goal, not mega riches but it really is hard to hold back the tears when seeing BTC hit $60k

    mine also went over the side when we hit a big wave, such a shame.

    to think btc is only $10k away from a kg of gold parity, probably only 12 weeks away.

    sort of sucks in retrospect. but also you did make money, there are allot of people who lost money on it. While your not rich it did get you debt free so that a good win.
    I got a holiday out the bitcoin and cryptos i played with years ago. I was thankful i sold just before the crash. Now i could have got three holidays if i didnt sell, but who gives a shit, the holiday we had was a bloody good time and was a good win.

    was happy to get out of it, tobe honest it was rather bad for stress the crypto thing, watching it go up and down over and over again, im glad i dont play with the shit anymore having to worry about wild rides and no idea when to sell and if i push it to long will it crash or not, all that shit was rather stressfull.
