6 People Who Lost Millions in Bitcoin


Today we are looking at 6 people who have lost MILLIONS by losing or missing out on bitcoin in freak scenarios. These people all WOULD have been Bitcoin millionaires but because of bad luck or bad judgement some of them are left with Pennies. Today's video was done in collaboration with https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCwe5uuFJR89BLBeq9UGMcKA Subscribe to World5List http://goo.gl/cpJSA6 Find us on... -- http://www.boredbadger.com -- http://www.facebook.com/world5list Bitcoin may feel like it exploded overnight, but for early backers of the cryptocurrency this wasn't exactly so—especially for those individuals who may have sold too early or even lost their stake completely. Let's take a look at some of the poor souls who lost millions in Bitcoin, either entirely by accident or out of impatience. Today's video was done in collaboration with Crypto Coin Consultants. Stay tuned to see more! Number 6. James Howells Imagine the feeling of losing $150 million in a single day! That's exactly what happened to IT worker James Howells. The icing on the cake is that he knows exactly where his 7,500 bitcoins are, but city council won't allow him to search for them, since it's technically against the law to go scavenging through the local landfill. Number 5. Darren McFadden NFL star Darren McFadden lost out on a multi-million dollar Bitcoin fortune through a fraudulent investment of his ex-business manager. McFadden retired from the NFL after 10 seasons at just 30 years old and ended up suing Michael Vick; not the NFL quarterback (but rather, his former business manager) for a sum of $15 million. Number 4. Campbell Simpson Gizmodo Australia editor of technology Campbell Simpson said he unknowingly threw out a portable hard drive seven years ago which today would have held $4.8 million worth of bitcoin. Number 3. The Anonymous Redditor's Cautionary Tale There's a popular Reddit post circulating the internet that goes something like this: an anonymous user had been margin trading for around a year and ended up turning 3 Bitcoin into 200 Bitcoin, which would have been around $4 million dollars during its peak. Number 2. Mt. Gox Another big name in the cryptocurrency world is Mark Karpeles, who was the former head of the world's biggest bitcoin exchange. Number 1. Coincheck Coincheck is one of the biggest cryptocurrency exchanges to date, but as we know much of the cryptocurrency world is at risk for cyber security issues. Coincheck Inc. was one such cybersecurity target. It was also one of the largest heists in history in regards to digital tokens. It wasn't Bitcoin that was stolen, but rather, an obscure coin called NEM that was taken.
