He made the revelation of the huge loss in a new post on Quora, where a question was generally asked to know anyone that has lost money while trading Bitcoin (BTC) and any other cryptocurrencies.
The top executive at Ripple says that he had made some investment decisions that have turned out to be disasters:
“Absolutely. Not as much as I’ve made, but yeah, I’ve bought quite a few cryptocurrencies that turned out to be disasters. Here are just a few cryptocurrencies that I bought that I ultimately had to write off as worthless…
“My total losses, just on tokens that become completely worthless, is just over $300,000.”
David Schwartz, who is one of those that founded XRP Ledger revealed those worthless tokens as follows: TIX, DICE, FLASH, VEZT, AMP, SIG, BEE, KIND, PRYZE, KUDOS, NRN
In October, Schwatz also revealed that he sold 40,000 ETH at $1, BTC at $750, and XRP at $0.1:
“My decision to derisk was made in 2012 or so when I discussed investing in cryptocurrencies with my wife. She insisted we agree on a derisking plan right then. And I must say that every bitcoin I sold for $750 or XRP for $0.10 hurt…
I [still] own XRP and BTC as well as small amounts of BAT and ETH, and very small amounts of a few others.”
