Posted on 06/19/2021 10:01:58 AM PDT by lowbridge
When Chris Williamson put $20 into cryptocurrency Rocket Bunny, he didn't expect to become a trillionaire overnight.
Yet, temporarily at least, that appeared to be what happened.Williamson said that when he tried to move the currency into another wallet to withdraw, it wasn't showing the same price, so he contacted Coinbase.
The student from Manchester, Georgia, then rushed onto the Coinbase cryptocurrency trading app, barely believing what he was seeing.
Coinbase replied with a short answer saying it was looking into the issue, and tried to contact Rocket Bunny but never heard anything back.
"So, that's when I'm like, 'Okay, I'm just going to have fun with it at this point.'
So, I went to Twitter," Williamson told the news network."You know when you look at it, it's like you know there's no way I'm ever going to get this amount of money," he said.
Williamson was expecting the large sum of money to quickly disappear from his account, but instead it grew. He determined that he bought into the correct online coin, and that it wasn't a scam.
The Georgia student even tweeted billionaire Elon Musk, Tesla and SpaceX CEO who frequently posts to social media about cryptocurrencies, hoping he could provide him advice about his newfound fortune.
"I thought for sure because he trolls people all the time," Williamson said. "I am hoping he's actually saw it and maybe he's been following it, but I don't know. That is an Elon Musk wallet."

If it were me, I’d sell. Yeah, that might mean I am only only a billionaire, but I could live with that.
Someone let Chris know that I have some magical beanstalk bean, I got from some guy named Jack. I’ll sell him 4 of them for $1,000,000.
VERY FAKE NEWS....
This is clearly made up.
Notice there is not a single mention of the coin he invested?
The entire crypto market has been going down. Coinbase does not have that many coins.
Yeah this is 100% fake.
A Billion here, a Billion there, soon you’re talking about real money!
It was Magneticoin. Now you believe it.
He'd better be able to get it out because Jao Xiden's IRS wants it's $210,000,000,000 Capital Gains by tomorrow.
I would be interested in investing in cryptocurrencies, but I would need to know I was dealing with a legitimate source, not just a thief hiding behind an online sales page.
“Rocket Bunny” is mentioned in the article.
Rocket Bunny rhymes with funny money.
The first sentence says it: Rocket Bunny.
Here is information on that crypto currency:
It’s all fun and games until you can’t get your money out.
Trillionaire in what?
He’s only a trillionaire if the “currency” is converted to dollars and it amounts to a trillion of those.
How does he spend these whatever they are “things”?
Everett? Is that you?
Hello this is Debbie
This story is actually not more fake than most of the mainstream media reporting.
Mainstream media reports “some say” etc., and it is often made up b.s.
You gotta find the buyers.
I just started watching a Netflix series called “Startup”. First investment in the crypto currency is drug and other crimes connected.
