Bitcoin & Crypto & NFT News
I've been interested in Bitcoin since I heard about it back in 2010, I CPU mined, I GPU mined with my company's computers (with their knowledge of course).
I amassed a good amount and then when the price started going up at the end of 2017 I realized I couldn't remember the password I used to encrypt my keys, at today's price what I have in that wallet would be worth 8 figures.
I have literally tried everything to get that password back, including weird things like hypnotism and even ayahuasca. At this point I'm sure it's gone, good for you guys I burned about 350 BTC.
Now on to how it might have saved my house. I kept buying what I could, I was making good money for a time so I was able to buy every now and then. I amassed a huge total of 0.28 BTC, I was hoping to hodl that basically forever, but fate had another plan for me.
My GF cheated on me, which was devastating because we had been together for 5 years, during that time we bought a house together, and I went into debt to finance improvements and renovations. Now I need to refinance and I'm not making the same money I was when we bought it so I thought I was screwed when it came to qualifying to refinance.
I was able to sell my 0.28 about 2 weeks ago and pay off my credit card and some of my line of credit, and now I'm teetering on the edge of being able to refinance and pay the cheater out.
There's no moral to the story except HODL, you never know when you'll need the money you have invested in Bitcoin, it's going to the moon so don't take it out unless you absolutely have to. I wish I didn't but for the foreseeable future I'm out of the game.
I really hope I can refinance my house because I worked so hard on this place, I'm paying down my line of credit as much as I can but due to COVID I'm just not making the same money I once was.
TLDR: Don't go into debt, don't trust women you're not married to, and HODL.
