Trillionaire crypto: American wakes up ‘trillionaire’ after buying $ 20 worth of crypto
Williamson, a nursing student, woke up on the morning of June 16 to check his trading account on Coinbase, one of the world’s largest cryptocurrency exchanges, and fell out of bed. His trading account had a balance of over $ 1,000 billion, which would make him the world’s first trillionaire.
“I woke up, it’s 9 am and I’m still checking my phone to check how my crypto is doing and I’m like ‘Naw, I’m sleeping’. I look at it again and I think to myself… at that moment, I literally fell out of my bed, ”Chris Williamson told US network Fox 5.
It’s as good as it was for Williamson.
He took to the microblogging site Twitter the same day to take matters into his own hands. “I’m going to need someone to explain to me what’s going on, then write me a check.” I have a penguin shaped mega yacht waiting, ”Williamson wrote on his Twitter account.
As it turned out, the $ 20 value of RocketBunny cryptocurrency that Williamson purchased using his Coinbase account did not turn into more than $ 1,000 billion overnight. The balance reflected in Williamson’s Coinbase account was a “technical error”.

“Sorry – the penguin yacht may have to wait – our team is aware of the display error causing this wishful thinking for some ERC20s. They are working to fix – in the meantime, negotiating the asset will reflect its current market value, ”Coinbase’s Twitter account replied to Williamson’s tweet two days later.
Before we delve deeper into Williamson’s issues, it’s important to recognize the cryptocurrency that Williamson bought for $ 20.
RocketBunny is a recent entrant into the cryptocurrency world promising to be a deflationary token with a maximum supply of 777 quadrillion. The concept of cryptocurrency is unique to larger and more popular peers like Bitcoin and Ethereum.
This is how RocketBunny describes its motto: “Each transaction results in a 4% tax which is distributed in four equal parts: 1% to holders, 1% burnt at The Rabbit’s Hole, 1% blocked cash and 1% bonus liquidity. suppliers. As the volume increases, the quantity burned increases logarithmically, ultimately leading to an exponential decrease in supply.
The cryptocurrency last cited a price of 0.000000000036. Yes, it’s 12 decimal places after the zero! The value of the cryptocurrency has plunged 76% over the past 22 days, making the possibility of Williamson becoming a billionaire because of the cryptocurrency a near-impossibility.
Williamson’s heartbreaking experience didn’t end anytime soon. Despite numerous calls to Coinbase and RocketBunny, the issue of a $ 1,000 billion balance in his trading account could not be resolved until the time of publication.
Williamson informed on Twitter on Monday that the value of his account was still increasing, but he could not cash out as it had been frozen by Coinbase. “Support responded to the user on June 18. Additionally, I wanted to clarify that the user’s account has never been locked out and has never lost access to the account,” said a representative of Coinbase at Dailymail.

Attention drawn to Williamson’s story boosted RocketBunnny’s coin as the cryptocurrency jumped more than 9% on Wednesday.
Williamson’s story has captured the cryptocurrency world, with many urging Coinbase to rectify its mistake, while others urge him to make sure he gets some sort of relief for his emotional and financial woes.
“The joke going on right now between me and my friends at Coinbase and one of the emails I sent them was like, ‘Look, I need you to tell me what’s going on because I have a mega-yacht company ready to build me a penguin shaped yacht, ”said Williamson.
