Monero investor barely escapes with his life after boating accident

 


What Happened?

In the wee hours of 15th April 2022, a Florida cryptocurrency investor was out boating, enjoying the solitude.

“It was perfect. The birds were singing their morning songs, the light from the break of dawn was dancing on the tiny waves. I was so happy.”

But then, his worst fears came true. A piranha attacked his boat.

The Accident

“It came from nowhere! Not a single sound, no warning, then just bam!”

He then described how the piranha systematically pinched a hole in his boat – and his dignity. The notoriously ferocious fish ate away at the bottom of the hull, where small boats are the weakest. Then it swam up and used its sharp teeth to strike a hole where the boat structure is the thinnest.

“I was in shock. I had no clue what I was gonna do. Am I gonna die?”

The investor then described how the water started to flow in. The boat was slowly sinking. He tried bucketing away the water, but it was of little avail. With no other choice, the poor man had to jump in the water and swim to shore.

“Was the piranha gonna eat me? What if it attacked me? I had no choice, so I took a deep breath, dived into the water and swam off towards shore.”

The Aftermath

Unfortunately for the poor man, he kept his Monero private key hidden away on his boat. Without this, he cannot access his crypto assets anymore.

“I’m just glad to be alive, to be honest. I may not have my crypto anymore, but at least I have my life.”

He has since moved to Dubai to start afresh.
