    Last year (2022) was a bit of a disaster for me on the cryptocurrency front, because I lost more money storing my crypto at sites like FTX, BlockFi and Celsius than I did at any casino or sportsbook. I lost close to $10,000 which was very painful because I thought these sites were really safe.

    I'm wondering if anyone else was stupid enough to lose money on these scam sites?

    I'm sorry that you had such a bad experience last year using crypto but I can assure you, that you are not alone. I personally know about a dozen people who lost money on FTX and BlockFi. We are still in the wild west days of cryptocurrencies so unfortunately we are probably going to see more of this. To reduce the odds of our players getting their funds stolen, we've written this Guide To Choosing A Safe Exchange For Online Gambling. I hope some of you find it useful.

    I lost over $10,000 in FTX. I got completely fooled into thinking Sam Bankman-Fried was a genius. After seeing the Super Bowl commercial with Larry David, why would you think it was just a ponzi. I'm hoping one day I'll get a percentage back at least.

    i was keeping half of my bitcoin on blockfi because i keep hearing it recommended on popular bitcoin podcasts like the pomp podcast and the peter mccormack podcast "what bitcoin did" so i presumed it must be safe. big mistake. i'm hoping i'll get a fraction back someday when bankruptcy proceedings finish.
