Bitcoin Millionaire Held At Gun Point; A Reminder To Never Disclose Your Crypto Assets On Social Media
The moment you make the decision to start investing in crypto assets or even trading in them, there is one lesson that you will need to learn from the word go: It is never a good idea to invest more than you can afford to lose; not your BTC, not your keys. A second lesson to keep in mind will be to never disclose the amount that you are holding in digital assets at any one time.
Making public this information can easily make you a target for bad actors in the industry and for criminals out to make a quick buck. The second lesson is one a Norwegian BTC millionaire came to learn firsthand. The millionaire had a door knock and opened his door only for him to come face-to-face with a loaded shotgun.
What followed after this encounter was a bizarre story and a crucial lesson as to why you should never publicly disclose your digital assets holdings. As a crypto investor, it is crucial to make sure that you stick to these words of wisdom.
BTC Millionaire Jumps From Balcony to Save BTC and His Life
A multi-millionaire based in Oslo, Norway who accumulated his fortune working in the crypto market for more than a decade, recently had a shot-gun laden criminal interested in getting his hands on the multi-millionaire’s digital assets.
According to newspaper reports on the incident, the unnamed man is worth well over a hundred million dollars thanks to his digital holdings. The reports go on to state that the man has recently been under public scrutiny due to his vast wealth. This is the reason the criminal targeted him through the home invasion.
The story goes that the man went to answer a doorbell only to encounter an assailant armed with a shotgun. The assailant then started making demands for him to release the multi-millionaire. But instead of choosing to comply, the investor chose to make a daring escape. It was an escape that involved jumping from the balcony in a two-story apartment.
