He says he has thought about returning the money due to doubts about its provenance, but that option a contract giving the buyer the right, but not the obligation, to buy or sell an underlying asset or instrument at a specified strike price. was impossible because he lost the chat and now doesn’t even have contact with the person. A few days before the video was posted, he had taken to Twitter to find out how to recover an account onTorChat.
I closed this conversation without knowing that he had transferred me over ten million euros in Bitcoin and it’s the stupidest thing about it. It really makes me feel terrible because I was teasing him in the conversation. First he sent me a tiny transfer of four euros and I teased him like “oh, I’m going to invest investing is when you put money in a financial scheme with the intent of making a gain. it in a McDonald’s menu”.
I’m going crazy, does anyone know if there is a way to recover your TorChat account if you lose it?
