I made a lot of mistakes this past few weeks and I lost a lot of Bitcoin Cash. There is a lot of things that happen to me that I am not aware not it's going to happen. If you want to know what I'm talking about just keep scrolling and reading.

A week ago my phone stopped working and I don't know how to fix it so I send it to a repair center. All of my information is on that phone and I can't access it now. Luckily I send all of my balance to my other wallet (Uphold) before my phone stopped working.

I'm working with read.cash, publish0x, and other things with my phone so I need a new device to use to make an article. I have an old laptop that I'm using during my college. It's a very old device and it's lagging a lot. 

You can still use it for browsing, surfing, streaming, etc. but you can still experience a bit of freezing most of the time.

August 10

I checked my phone at the repair shop but they said that it will take more days to be repaired because they have a lot of pending devices to work on. So I need to wait for a little more and keep continue to use my old laggy laptop.

August 11

I was writing an article on my old laptop and suddenly it shut down and I was panicking because I haven't saved my article before it shut down. I usually saved it while I'm writing every minute but I was busy that time because while I'm writing an article, I'm talking to a customer because I have an online shop as well.

I'm only posting 1 article every 3 days if I'm busy and most of the time I'm online on other social media sites to deal with my customers.

for a couple of hours, my laptop keeps turning on and off and It shows some text on the screen that I don't really understand. that's how bad I am in terms of computer or technology.

I don't know why but I pressed some random keys on my keyboard and it turns on smoothly. after that, I cleaned all of my junk files on my computer to reduce lags and have some free space on it because it has 10% free space on its hard drive.

My Mistake

I uninstalled all of the apps that I am not using on that laptop. It's time to say goodbye as well to my favorite movies and Korean dramas. Then I start writing again with my unsaved article. I stated it all over again from the start. but this time, I saved it every minute.

Then after I finished my article for about 3 hours I opened my read.cash account on my old laggy laptop. The laptop is still laggy and so I decided to clean the browser because I think it is the reason why it is lagging. my browser has a lot of history and maybe cache? I don't what it is but I read some articles and watch some videos about it that you need to clean it often to maintain stability on your device. that's how I understand it.

After that, I just clicked the reset button on my Chrome Browser and It restarts. so I logged in again with my read.cash account and I forgot that I have some balance on that account. I forgot that when I first logged in on that browser it will make a new wallet and I use it temporarily because my phone is not yet repaired or working. 

So I lost about $13 and It's a huge amount for me but I moved on.

Lesson Learn

I Always make mistakes all the time on things that I am not aware of. but the lesson that I have learned this time is always think before you take some action. Just as simple button that I clicked I lost some money. It can be applied in different scenarios in our lives.

You can always make a decision without knowing what will happen if you made that decision. I have had a lot of unplanned decisions in my life that ruin me until now. but what I did is I just note it all the time so that I will not make that mistake and instead of getting myself down because I made some mistakes, I treat it as a lesson and to be aware of it.

Example:

I have a lot of Bitcoin Cash before and I always spend it on things that are not worth it. Then Bitcoin Cash rises up and I should have more value with my Bitcoin Cash if I don't spend it on things that are not valuable.

So this time, I only spend it if I really need it. Don't waste your resources on things that are not valuable.

I thought you lost about 1 BCH or more. As long as you have the seed phase of your wallet any wallet you use. You can always open them. That's why having the seed phase back up is very very important 👍

You can still earn what you lost 👍

Sorry to read you've lost some money. It is good to see though that you consider the lost money as tuition fee for lessons learned. It's the best attitude to have in cases like this. I should know i've paid thousands in tuition fees like these. :P

Ran a man lang nasave lahat ng files mo sa Google cloud or you could have synced it to your google account. $13 malaki na yun. Anyways, makakabawi ka rin.

In all seed Phrase can help to restore your money. I also commited same mistakes in the past but seed phrase helped me. You should keep this phrase in hard form. Sad to hear you lost your precious BCH.
