About 4 months ago while at a work function, a friend of a friend was talking about a crypto he had just invested in. He bought 30,000,000 tokens at .00005 and it had just jumped to .0005. He was super excited and told myself and 2 other friends about it. I was convinced it was going to flop again and never thought about it again.
The 2 others in the group bought that token the following days. 1 bought a few hundred bucks worth, and 1 bought $20 worth.
Fast forward to this morning, when my friend told me to go say goodbye to my friend of a friend, it’s his last day at work.
Curious, I asked how come, to which he told me, he just cashed out of his token, which is now worth 15 cents. This dude’s been making 45k a year for the last 10 years, as we all worked together, and just cashed out at 29 with $4+ million.
My friends made $22,000 and the guy who put in $20 has enough to pay of his car.
Meanwhile, I have to get up early and go to work tomorrow. Don’t be like me. If you have faith, don’t let others sway you. I’m sure glad this dude didn’t listen to my sarcastic comment about the token being worthless.
(I am purposefully not naming this particular token as to not draw comparisons. Just simply illustrating how quickly the unexpected can happen.)
