Cryptocurrencies and trading in them involve market risks, but who knew this market risk would soon turn into a life threat for a trader. An anonymous cryptocurrency trader living in Nordics, Norwegia had a close brush with an armed robber in May but his quick and smart thinking saved his life.
A cryptocurrency trader in May was robbed at gunpoint when a man showed up at his house with a gun and tried to rob him. The trader jumped from his balcony to save his life and called the police and informed them about the whole incident.
3 months later, it looks like the robber has been arrested and will be facing charges in the Norwegian court for the crime he did. The cryptocurrency trader, on the other hand, made a name for himself in the city when he gathered as much as $11 million from his investing career. His crypto wealth was unharmed as he stored it all in a cold wallet in a secure place.
A lesson for Crypto Community
After this incident, one thing that we have learned for sure is that no matter how successful you are in this risky industry, it does not mean that you have to broadcast your success for everybody to hear.
Sharing the profitability and advantages of involving a person in the industry is also important, but there can be side effects to these actions like the one our Norwegian friend here faced. The second thing is to keep your crypto assets secure to avoid any financial loss if an incident like this ever happens with you.
The strange thing is that this crime took place n a country which is not very notorious when it comes to a high crime rate. Imagine if this would’ve happened in a country where the crime rate is high, we would have a much more tragic story.
