According to the prices today, if a kept my bitcoins i'd be up thirty to sixty K

Losing bitcoin due to software or hardware difficulties and being scammed? at least five k

how about you?
I think the biggest loses I have made is when I hard of bitcoin in 2012 when it price is below $100 I refused to invest and put about $1300 in binary option trading and lose the whole investment. I always see my not investing into bitcoin earlier than now as a lost to me.

My biggest lost was definitely Josh Garza's fucking Paycoin scam. Second biggest was pbmining. Third is me being a dumbass and running random wallets on my main computer left and right without sandbox or VM and getting fucked by a malware years ago thinking it wouldn't happen to me.

Learned my lessons on all these fronts; not trusting anything remotely centralized (paycoin, cloud mining) ever since and always only run wallets in VM or in a restricted sandbox.

I could't agree more with this.  I found this to be a valued contribution to my knowledge in bitcoin security.

FOMOing on ripple when it boosted a lot with some margin trading involved. I now realize what a speculative coin is and will always stay far away from it and I also don't margin trade anymore.

Mine was Ethereum. I lost about 5 - 10% of my investment the second time I bought some.. my first time was successful.
I bought at the wrong time when it quickly moved from 120—190 and then moved back down. I panicked and sold at 150 dollar.

Mine is not a physical loss, but not buying ethereum while it was $15 is my worst decision ever! I could have made my total capital x25, oh god.  Cry


Lets make EEA - Ethereum Early sold Anonimous


For everyone who sold ETH tooo early


I have only tiny amount now wich give me profit , but if not sold too early I could buy a house now.

My biggest loss with cryptocurrencies is selling Bitconnect. It was may 25. I sold my coins at 5 mBTC. If I had them now every coin can worth more than 14 mBTC. rising in the price start just I sold them. I'm so sad because I had hold them about 3 months and  I sold them in the worst time.

Most people here with biggest lost are sold early, included myself.
If you sell your coins early that does not mean that you will end up in a loss,if you let go of a coin then all the valuation after that are just hypothetically nothing because there is nothing you can do and you really cannot count your losses with those assessment .

Having bought Litecoin at 10 EUR at the end of 2013 or beginning of 2014, holding during the Huobi/BTCChina (can't remember) pump to 16 EUR and watching it plumet to 3-4 EUR. Stayed there for three years, but I kept holding. Noticed there are always fluctuations between 3,5 and 4 EUR. Decided after three years of bagholding to recover my loss by swingtrading on those fluctuations, so sold at 4 EUR one evening and put a limit buy at 3,5........... which never hit because that evening I sold was the evening before the BIG SEGWIT PUMP TO 35 EUR.
That happened to me because I didn't really follow cryptonews a few months ago, was out of the loop and a complete beginner. Learned a lot in just a few months and now I keep up with news and follow other people on Twitter (and realized how little I knew about crypto, a lot has changed since 2013-2014 when I was in the loop).

Plot twist: What makes this story from ultimate bad luck to a huge success story... a little later the Ripple pump started and also the ETC pump. I figured, hey I should just buy a random coin and see what happens. So I put the fiat I got from selling my LTC at a huge loss in... Stellar Lumen! And just one day later it started pumping x20. My profits were massively higher than if I were to stay in LTC and magically called the top to sell.

My biggest loss is when I sold my XEM at price of 300 satoshi each. And as we can see, XEM got the ath of 14k satoshi each which is very peofitable if I have sold my XEM at that price.

Sounds like most people have had their biggest loss from selling too early, but generally we shouldn't count those as a loss because most people still sold at a profit. If we are then I will say my biggest loss is not going all in several years ago but waiting on the sidelines until recently.

According to the prices today, if a kept my bitcoins i'd be up thirty to sixty K

Losing bitcoin due to software or hardware difficulties and being scammed? at least five k

how about you?
Most of us here experiencing the same situation when we are new at this kind of investment. But in my side I still in profit even thought Ill also been scam  multiple times investing in Ponzi scheme  but now I already learn my lesson.
