possibly the worst thing about this crash...

All the shit I have to hear in the office.

The god damn "i-told-ya-so" from John. "I have no idea how stocks or anything like that work but i know bullshit when i see it. I can't believe people were dumb enough to buy fake money."

Yea ok mate, if i need a status update on that box of donuts in the break room, you're my go-to guy. other than that? shut up and go back to being shit at your job.

Then you've got Becky, flapping her useless mouth in the background who "knew" bitcoin was a scam when her boyfriend's Sister's cousin told her that the "bitcoin inventor guy" posted on his website that he was selling all his bitcoin.

"Money can't just be numbers on screens, that's not how money works. it has to be something you can hold as well! With all this net neutrality stuff going on you'd be crazy to invest in money that they can just shut down with the flick of a switch!"

Becky, last week i heard you ask the IT guy if you needed two mice plugged in to your computer if you want to use two screens at once and now you have a working knowledge of both the monetary system, crypto currencies AND the internet?! that's very impressive.

I have no idea why this is annoying me so much, I just found the need to rant while waiting for a meeting to start.

Edit: people seem to have come to some weird conclusions that i've been doing nothing but come to work and try sell crypto to the entire office. the "i told ya so" isn't directed at me or anyone in particular, it's just general chatter around the office. i'm not printing out weekly bitcoin news letters to put on peoples desks or waiting by their car at night to ask why they haven't bought BTC.

Try not to jump to conclusions based on a semi-satirical piece of information.

Don't be a John or a Becky

the salty no-coiner input here is the best part. shout out to /r/all and probably /r/buttcoin

Don't fall for the USD scam.

You may have noticed USD has been surging lately. Recently passed 8k sats. Don't fall for this shitcoin. It's completely centralized and the organization in charge of it is able to alter the supply at will. Not to mention their leader is overly defensive and constantly attacks people on Twitter. This coin looks like a classic pump n' dump tbh.

My husband passed away unexpectedly and I found a USB thumbdrive in our safe. I dont understand bitcoin and could use some help.

I hope this is the right place to get help. My brother in law suggested I try reddit.com for help with trying to recover any amount of money my husband may have used with bitcoin and Google led me to this page. Ive tried my best to figure this out on my own but this bitcoin stuff is confusing and I just get angry and cry. All I want to do is recover any money he may have spent on bitcoin and be done with it.

My husband died of a heartattack two weeks ago and he was our family's only source of income while I stayed home with our daughter. He was only 37 so his death was very unexpected. While going through our safe I found a ziplock bag with the word bitcoin written on it and a USB thumbdrive inside. There was also a card with a bunch of words written on it and a 5-digit number.

The thumbdrive has a little screen and two buttons on it. When I plug it in my computer doesnt seem to recognize it. It looks like it wants me to enter a password but I cant seem to get past the first digit. Im hoping the 5 digit number written on the card is his password but its like its missing a button or something.

I need help getting the bitcoins off of this thumbdrive and then help figuring out how to cash them out.

Thank you Sara
