Get a legal guardian who has to approve any and all further transactions you do, because you can't be trusted not to fall for the most obvious scam.

When people wonder why there are so many scammers they can look at this (and countless other) examples.  Even if the scammer never gets another mark.  ~$1500 for a couple hours of photoshop work and a website.  Not to bad works out to $300 to $500 per hour.  If he can con 20 people this month before never getting another mark well that is more than many people make in a year.  Collect a years salary in less than a month.  Yeah I think scammers are going to keep trying.

The thing I don't get is the OP hadn't registered here BEFORE getting scammed.  I mean a quick post would likely have prevent a loss.  Say 10 minutes to make an account, make a post, get a response that it is an obvious scam.   £1000 * 60 / 10 = £6,000 per hour.  The OP must be rolling in money for his time to be that valuable.

This. Especially since this particular site was identified here as a scam months ago.

Wat do i do?

There is nothing to do.  The money is gone you are never getting it back.   Sorry if it sounds harsh but the reality is harsh and someone trying to give you hope will just be giving you false hope.   Quite often victims waste days, weeks sometimes months trying to track down the scammer after the fact (the irony is that 1% of that time spent BEFORE the fraud would have actually paid dividends).  The reality is the money is gone, you are never going to hurt the thief, you are never going to get your money back.  Chalk it up as an expensive life lesson and be thankful you didn't buy 100 units.

i admit, my bad
As for why i did it...
normally i am the cautious type believe it or not
but i saw a few units selling on bitmit.net  (i now realise those were fake)
I guess "greed" got to me and the thought of having 89GH/s power got to my head and i didn't think to much of it

yeah it is an expensive lesson learnt :-(
