I have a few hundred bitcoin from mining back when it was possible with a CPU and GPU. I never told anyone in my life that I really knew anything about bitcoin. The most I'd usually say is "bitcoin is cool you should check it out." Never said much back in the day because BTC was so new no one I knew would care. Now I don't say anything because I feel like i could be a target of attack/theft/distant "friends" looking for handouts. Plus, my family doesn't know. So, to come out with "I'm a millionaire" over a random dinner may not go over well.
I mined, HODLed, moved them around between online BTC casinos, trading alts, experimenting with different wallets, etc. Now they just sit in a hardware wallet far removed any proof that blockchain analysis could show I really did mine them.
I have no e-mails, no old wallets, etc… nothing to prove this.
With the prices they are now, it's really bothering me that I am sitting a lot of money and afraid to use it. Wut do? I want to cash out 50% and HODL the rest. I will pay my taxes but what if I am investigated for laundering, being a drug kingpin, or whatever? I've done nothing wrong but I can't prove otherwise. At worst, the gov't will take my money.
Or, am I overthinking this?
