When it comes down to gambling, experts from all around the world and common sense state one clear thing: never gamble more than you can afford to lose. While most people tend to follow this advice, there are also those like the 39-year-old Didi Taihuttu, who decided to sell absolutely everything he owned, and invest it into bitcoin!
Thanks to his belief in bitcoin, and that soon enough, the digital currency will skyrocket in value and reach numbers that we cannot even consider now, the Dutchman decided to sell his house, cars and everything else he had, such as motorbikes, electric bikes, clothes, furniture, shoes, and even his children’s toys. This move, deemed extreme by many, may just turn out to have an incredibly good return on the investment for the person in question.
Reports indicate that he is now waiting for the bitcoin price to skyrocket, at a campsite in the Netherlands, thus making him substantially richer than he was before selling everything he had. In a recent press statement, Taihuttu mentioned that: “People will say, ‘you’re crazy.’ But we are an adventurous family and are going to gamble for a moment to live minimalist lives. If you never take a risk, life is boring. (…) The Internet was a revolution for information. I think that Blockchain and Cryptocurrency are revolutionising the monetary system. In five years’ time, everyone will say: ‘We could have seen it coming.’ I am responding to this change now.”
However, it seems like making big decisions such as this one isn’t a new thing for Taihuttu. He actually has a history of doing the same thing not long ago. Recently, he took the radical decision of selling a big part of what he owned to travel the world with his wife and three children. His trip lasted a total of 9 months and was carried out mostly throughout Asia and Australia.
It seems like during his travels, the IT specialist met numerous people who encouraged him to start trading and holding bitcoin for a profit. He was also the owner of a bitcoin mining business, so the crypto world isn’t entirely new to him, on the contrary.
Judging by these aspects, if you had a strong belief that bitcoin was going to skyrocket within a couple of months, or even years, would you cross the line and sell everything you have for bitcoin? Let us know your thoughts!
