An Illinois resident won $ 500,000 in a lottery and invested half in bitcoins in May. The first cryptocurrency since then has risen in price by almost 65%.
Reddit user with the nickname joxnlol posted his photo with the confirmation of the lottery results and the signature:
Did this. Then put half into BTC in May. Remind me in 8 months if I f****d up.
He noted that after taxes, the gain was approximately $ 357 thousand. His investment in the first cryptocurrency amounted to about $ 178 thousand, and profit exceeded $ 100 thousand, according to Cointelegraph.
In one of the further posts in the branch, he said that he was not going to touch the cryptocurrency “at least another year”.
Many commentators noted that joxnlol put himself in danger by posting a photo that was tied to the state.
