Alex Jones, author, documentary filmmaker and owner of the American Infowars app, claims to have lost a laptop containing 10,000 bitcoins worth about $ 500 million. The laptop was given to him by Max Kaiser, a famous TV personality about ten years ago.
New York Magazine has named Alex Jones, the most controversial and extremist American presenter, “the most prominent American conspiracy theorist.” He was known as one of the critics of Bitcoin for a long time until he entered the cryptocurrency market late last year, and finally confess Which should have been involved in bitcoin much earlier. At the same time, Alex Jones had predicted that the price of bitcoin would reach $ 400,000.
He said in a recent press conference:
“Ten years ago, Max Kaiser came to me and said he was going to give me 10,000 bitcoins as a gift. “He added that bitcoin will become the new currency in the world and gave me a laptop containing bitcoins.”
Known as a Bitcoin fan, Max Kaiser confirms Alex’s claim that he received a laptop containing 10,000 bitcoins as a gift. When Kaiser gave such a gift to Alex, the price of bitcoin was less than $ 5. At some point in time, the price of this popular currency code crossed the $ 57,000 mark.
Alex Hawnes now claims to have lost a laptop containing 10,000 bitcoins. His missing bitcoins are worth over $ 500 million. This is not the first time this has happened to people who bought digital currencies years ago, and others around the world have lost their precious coins quite by accident.
