  1. tldr; A Bitcoin miner received 50 BTC on May 17, 2010, and didn’t do anything with it for a period of 11 years. The miner turned his reward into cash ten years later and became rich because of it. If the miner decides to sell his holdings, he will make a phenomenal gain of over 76,000,000%.

  2. I love stories like this. I wonder what he thought he was getting into back in 2010, whether he was a true believer in bitcoin and thought these measly 50 bitcoins might one day change his life, and of course what he’s been up to for the past 11 years.

  3. I like to imagine this like that Futurama Episode where Fry discovers his old card and checks his balance, only to discover he has $4 Billion in his account.

    Congrats to the random guy!

  4. Jan 2010 1 BTC closed at $0.05USD. December 2010 1 BTC closed at $0.30USD. Mining 50 BTC at that time would have taken no time at all. Laszlo Hanyecz was mining with a GPU miner and bought two pizzas in May of 2010 for 10,000 BTC for funsies. Gotta wonder if this was just a tiny fraction of what this person had… I mean, 10 BTC in 2010 would have seemed like dust to us in comparison to today.

  5. So call me crazy or whatever but like….. Why? That’s awesome for him really but with corrent inflation concerns and a looming collapse of the global markets, why would he want fiat? And if they did run into financial problems and needed to get some cash out of their bitcoin, why $3 mil? This kinda doesn’t make sense to me but whatevs 🤷‍♂️

    Edit: why the downvotes? Is asking genuine questions not allowed here? I thought we had a good discussion too dang 🙄
