Mt. Gox and missed mining opportunities
Moved my BTC to MtGox to sell for fiat because there was a price premium there... in early 2014. 😅

Mined Bitcoin in 2010. Stopped mining because I thought it wouldn't be profitable. Lost computer. Dreading the regret I'll feel when it hits $100k during the next 10x surge.

From ICOs to celebrity scams
I was in tron ICO, sold 3m trx 3 weeks before it went 100x to 25+ cents. Luckily kept a small stash, but wasn’t 3m TRX. Dumped the rest over 20 cents and never looked back

Near misses and lucky breaks
Sent 5000 $link to an exchange that didn’t list them.
However, one year later they, @kucoincom , recovered them for me!
