I am not sure if I am putting this in the right section.

Anyway, what are some of your guys biggest bitcoin losses?  Did many people here loss everything with Mtcox?  For me it is online casinos.  I do have a moderate gambling habit so it was bound to happen.  Cry

I lost quite a bit on securities, every company I invested turned to be scam, bankrupt, incompetents or something I don't even know.

You can check this topic, it has some real horror stories: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=576337.0

I lost 0.2 BTC back then investing in "MazaCoin". It was supposed to go to the moon, but it went underground. I held all the way down scare to try to reduce losses right when it would start going up.. I managed to even buy at the top.. what a waste of money that was.

I would think if your dealing with an alternative currency other than what the majority of people are using, because the masses use what is stable, then you are going to see a loss eventually.
Everytime the price goes up and goes down. When it goes down wouldn't you consider this a loss?

I am not sure if I am putting this in the right section.

Anyway, what are some of your guys biggest bitcoin losses?  Did many people here loss everything with Mtcox?  For me it is online casinos.  I do have a moderate gambling habit so it was bound to happen.  Cry
My biggest loss is 1.5 BTC on roulette , it's few months ago , and the latest one I lost 0.2 on Primedice. I don't invest in cloud mining or ponzi, so I was saved from other losses.

On 1 spin of the wheel or gradually over the course of some days.  And thanks for the link pedrog. There are some really nasty stories on there for sure.  Lips sealed

My biggest loss was not getting into Bitcoin in December 2012 when I first became aware of it.

I've also always wanted to get into a ponzi scheme early, you know before the late adopters get scammed, but could never bring myself to do it.

I guess my loss was time more than monetary, but that time indirectly impacts the monetary side.

My biggest loss was when I was still gambling. I think I've lost 2-3BTC from roulette, sports bet and other gambling stuff. So from then on, I told myself to stay away from gambling.

Two biggest losses come from altcoins and dice gambling. Both inherited great risk, and lost out on 3 BTC total. Not my best moment but I've made it all back through video slots and such. As far as altcoins go, I refuse to give the shit another chance. Practically all altcoins are built to fail, but gain quick bucks through investors along the way.

I am not a type of person who left their money on casino , I will withdraw all my money when I want to stop playing, and deposit again if I want to play. I lost them all in few hours.
I am not a high roller, I bet on black or red only and used martingale , I forgot how many losses in a row till lost them all. I got a lesson, you can't win with martingale unless with huge bankroll.

I have always known what I wanted in the crypto biz, and that has always been bitcoin. So whenever I invested in any altcoins and made profit, I immediately got them into btc Tongue It did help me in the long way, honestly. But I had really bad gambling issues and I lost 2-3 btc in gambling. Ofcourse, I have made up a lot of money in gambling too, more than 10btc so it all equals out.
