After becoming a millionaire with bitcoin, man says nothing brings him joy anymore

A Brit who became a millionaire after investing in bitcoin began to complain that he is bored with life and that nothing brings him joy anymore. Second the 35 year old Englishman, he was a freelancer: he created content for social media. His earnings were just over $2,000 a month.

In 2014, when Bitcoin started to get more popular, he decided to invest all of his savings in digital currency. He discovered Bitcoin and said he “fell into a deep rabbit hole,” investing everything he could in the cryptocurrency – a bold and risky move.

He added that at the time he was trying to learn how to “live off the interest,” get off that crazy roller coaster and invest responsibly.

Three years later, its investment exceeded $2 million, around 11 million reais. Two more years passed and he became the owner of a fortune of $26 million, more than 148 million reais.

With that money, of course, there is no longer any need to work. The man decided to travel around the world and create new hobbies.

“Being rich is boring”

He quickly felt that he was getting bored. Having fulfilled his dreams, he now doesn’t know what to do with his life. Before, when he needed to earn money every day to live, he would stay in constant tone, get moral satisfaction from his work. And now he is in a dismal state.

Furthermore, he suddenly began to feel a certain guilt complex: it seems to him that a wealth he does not deserve has fallen on him.

“I’m in the same state of mind that many people get when they reach wealth”, he said. “It feels like I cheated on my life and now I’m not sure how to make it fun again – And I don’t feel like I deserve financial independence and retire early.” added.

Now the millionaire is increasingly thinking that it’s time to get back to work. “I loved my work, it was a source of inspiration in my life”, he said.

In the report posted on Reddit, the investor says that he liked to work and that it was a source of great excitement in his life. He adds that it’s hard to recreate this with just money.
