Everything I touch turned to dust this year. I’m still on my anti-depressant medication because otherwise I would have killed myself by now. Seriously. Let’s count the ways.
-in Jan, Korea had the crypto premium at 40%. I didn’t make use of the crypto account my gf made for me, and the premium is now completely gone.
-In Jan, I had a gain of 50k on my crypto. I didn’t sell or take profits. Now I’m down 170k. That’s a swing of 220k. +50 to -170.
-In Feb, the only ICO I invested in last year at $1.10 each debuted at $4 each. I could have sold right then and there and took $30k profit but of course I didn’t. I kept holding, and now this month I sold it at $0.90 each. Yup, I lost $2k when I could have been up $30k.
-In Jan/Feb I invested in a lot of stupid risky ICOs – over 20 of them. I thought if even ONE of them did a 10x I could make up for the other ones. Nope, turned out ALL of them except two went down 80-90% and the two that made me money only went up 50%. That hardly makes up for my losses. I’m down 37 ETH on that.
-In Jan/Feb I took out 3 loans to average down for a total of 85k + 5k in origination fees/interest. And… the market went down 70% since then. So yeah, that was stupid as well.
-I sold off all my stocks at the beginning of the year to put all into crypto. The AMZN/TSLA/NVDA stocks I sold subsequently went up 50%+ and crypto went down 70%. FML.
-In Apr/May I got scammed 1.5ETH by people pretending to be admins on telegram.
-In Apr I lost $2300 shipping a package because I didn’t use the USPS Priority mail and it didn’t have tracking to Canada. Buyer complained, I had to pay it back since I had no way of proving it was delivered.
-Worst timing ever. I sell EOS and ETC, a few days later it goes up 20%. I sell BITG literally the next day it jumps up by 50%. Why? why does this happen to me?
-In June I put a lot of my money into masternode coins to try and stabilize. I sold off a lot of coins at the bottom because I wanted to make some stable income. Well guess what, those coins are up 30-40% now, and my masternode coins are down 70%. Of course. One of them even went down 90%. I lost over 2 BTC on those. Even when I am trying to stabilize I end up losing money.
-In June when I was trying to get my place renovated, the movers lost my $1000 camera. Seriously, wtf? I can’t even get something as simple as moving my items done without losing money???
So yeah (and don’t forget my gf broke up with me early in the year, my job gets more and more tedious and I’m on meds now) this is easily the most horrible year I’ve had in recent memory. Please, please let this year end soon. Last year was boring but I was at least steadily gaining money. This year, 1/3rd of my net worth is gone, and everything I try to do to get it back only loses me more money. What is happening to me? I must be the anti-Midas touch. I even lost my friends money as I got them into the same masternode coins. My only saving grace is I really hope my apartment sells for above market value to at least make back for some of my losses…
