I bought $40 worth of bitcoin four years ago (0.033 BTC) and the value appreciated to $500. Unfortunately, the company I stored my bitcoins in (Vircurex) engages in shady business practices and I can’t transfer my bitcoins to another provider. Still trying to this day to transfer the coins, but I’m losing hope.
If you think that's bad, in 2013 i sold my .366 of a bitcoin for $405.76 that i had collected in 2011 from free bitcoin sites (plus tor) and an now dead online bitcoin casino that used flash.... didn't spend a dime.
anyways that's worth $5652.67
as of the time of posting this.
Goodluck getting your $500 out of Vircurex, by way by now you should also have 0.033 worth of bitcoin cash as well thanks to the fork (i think)
