I lost a small amount trying to day trade RDD the one day, I would have held but I decided I'd make more if I switched it to another coin at the time (ended up being right). So I never really lost.

sold EMC2 at 171 sat
sold XRP at 11 cents
initial buy: literally flipped a coin and took monero over ethereum

All in all I've made thousands, but it could have been tens of thousands

buy 10 eth at around $40
freak out when it goes from $90 to $70 and sell
buy back and freak out again at the $180 to $140 dip
Payed 2 eth for being a weak handed fool... I know its not a lot compared to other people but....

Skullbone

Sold 100 eth last night at $300 before going to bed. Thought for sure it was going to dip and I'd make a lot of money. I don't usually day trade

I didn't really lose $40k, more like I missed out on it by putting a shitton of ETH into POSW

I've lost over 2 million by selling xem, xmr, eth, strat and waves too early.
My worst trading was during the early days, I'd buy at the top of the most obvious scam coin pumps and watch my btc evaporate instantly when FUD groups would attack the ANN threads.
I wanted to choke those motherfuckers

You didn't really lose that though user, don't worry. You just missed out on it. That's like a stockbroker being mad he sold microsoft stock in the 80s.

BinaryMan

20 grand on posw and its actually significantly more than that because my dumbass sold over 100 ETH to buy it when it was 0.18$ and ETH was 50$

my life is pure suffering

I went from 4 BTC to 2 BTC in the early days of mtgox. Then mtgox imploded so I effectively lost all my BTC.

Little did I know it was going to moon a few years later.

I can't tell if I'm happy I'm not alone in this pain or even more saddened that someone else got fucked like I did.

I wen't all in on swarm city at 3$ with what I had left. Least things are starting to look up finally, what about you user?

Bought 10,000ltc when it was at .005 because i thought the downward trend was finally reversing. Panic sold all of them at .0042 lost about 6 bitcoin.

funny thing is though I was actually very close to predicting the bottom (bottom was like .0035 which it hit a couple weeks later) and if i held onto those i would have more than doubled my btc and 6x its value in fiat.

I lost like 70 dollars on yobitscamcoins too. I was up like 300% riding some pumps but then I lost it all on the next pump.
Still waiting to transfer those dead coins back to btc for half the price.
Well, it was a fun afternoon and I learned my lesson.

I bought 2,000 light coin back at 3.5 because I knew it would jump, but got tired of waiting and sold at 4. $60,000 out the window.

Sometimes being early is just as dangerous as being late.

ITT: Could've been millionaires and could've been rich.

Calm down and let it go. Keeping such emotions will only make you more greedy and irrational in the future. I try to remember that at any time in the world, there are always a million missed opportunities to become a millionaire. You can't get them all or get any of them, but there will always be more to look for.

Good advice. To all anons here, I highly recommend the book Think and Grow Rich.

Once you realize that not only is money not scarce, but the most abundant resource we have, your outlook will be forever changed.

hmm, i've only put 120 euros as learning tuition in this and have made my "losses" always back and i've profited over 30 euros. thats nothing in money but around 30% in 3 weeks is better than 7% a year.

i have an ark wallet with 1750, but without realizing that if you screengrab your wallet passcode, it won't show up. Locked wallet ftw.

Wasted around 0.030 at betting sites. At one point got like 0.011 profit at one point - but lost them too.

It was when 1$-ish was 0.001. That all was quite stupid.
