    I saw the article. I check the market so often that I decided to take a break, then this happens and I miss it...
    Was it possible to purchase ETH when the price dropped that much? If so, I would have invested PLENTY more, oh yes.

    I was in a random telegram group chatting with some Asians about crypto and this happened and shit went crazy, they started spamming something in Chinese and started partying like crazy.

    it was 0.1$ for a few minutes, according to business insider. If you bought it at 0.1$, it would be ~4000x profit
