A trader has been left gutted after he lost out on a $6million fortune by selling Dogecoin a day too early.
The mystery trader has explained how he managed to make over $2 million profit on Shiba Inu and Dogecoin but admitted he could have made much more if he hadn’t cashed in so soon.
However, the investor said he is happy with the life-changing profits he made as he was able to buy a house.
The trader explained he held his nerve as the price of Shiba Inu flatlined during what he called the “winter months.”
He claimed he then made $1.1 million profit after selling up over the last month, on top of $1million profit from Dogecoin earlier this year.
Writing on a Reddit forum, the trader said he sold the last of his total of 42 billion Shiba Inu around seven days ago, totaling $1.5 million.
Since then the value has kept climbing, and selling the same investment today would net around $3million.
He said: “Waiting for more would be greedy, I’ve been wanting to buy a house and basically just got a free one.”
The trader went on to reveal: “I made a million with Doge earlier this year and had I waited one more day it would have been 7 million.
“I was bummed but looking back now, I’m happier that I have the money than I am sad that I don’t have more.
“So I’m sure when SHIB hits crazy numbers I will be bummed but hey!”
