My sweethearts bitcoin miner is selling for just over $3,000 after she bought it from a bitcoin seller.
The sale has raised a lot of interest and the woman, who cannot be named due to a court order, has received hundreds of messages from friends and strangers about her story.
“I had just sold my mining rig and was not sure what to do,” she said.
“It was a bit of a shock when I found out it was for bitcoin.”
After selling her rig, she decided to take it back to the bitcoin shop, but it wasn’t until the next day she found out the price had gone up.
“They had bought it for a pretty penny, so it wasn´t too bad to me,” she told Crypto Coins.
“But it was a surprise when they got back to me and told me they’d bought it back for $10,000.”
Ms Albertson bought her bitcoin mining unit from an online seller who was selling it for $1,500.
The seller told her they were interested in buying it for the price she paid.
Ms Albretson said she was shocked to find out the seller was selling for a more than $10k profit.
“So I was really surprised,” she says.
“Then they started making a lot more money than I thought they would and they were able to buy the unit back for me.”
The woman had already been in contact with the Bitcoin Exchange and asked for the seller to refund her money.
The woman has since contacted the seller and they have exchanged their bitcoin for another unit.
Ms Arbertsons story highlights the need for a robust and robust regulatory framework to allow users to buy and sell virtual currencies.
It is also vital that the Bitcoin and other virtual currencies be regulated to prevent fraud.
In a statement, Bitcoin Exchange confirmed the unit was bought for $5,000.
The company also said it would refund Ms Alberting’s money if the seller returned the unit.
“We have contacted the buyer and refunded the money to the buyer,” it said.
