Boyfriend Lost $ 400 Million in Bitcoin: His Mom Threw away Laptop with Wallet Keys

A Reddit user told the sad story of 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.
