"I'm going to need someone to explain what the hell is going on and send me a check. I have a megayacht shaped like a penguin waiting for me," the American wrote to Coinbase as the balance of his digital portfolio grew.
Christopher Williamson, a resident of Manchester (Georgia, USA), invested 20 dollars in the Rocket Bunny cryptocurrency on June 15 without suspecting that when he woke up the next day his investment would be worth more than 1.4 trillion dollars. Stunned, Williamson tried to sell his asset, but it was no longer the same price when he tried to move the money to another digital wallet, so he decided to contact directly with the representatives of Coinbase, the popular cryptocurrency trading platform that he had used, to clarify your financial situation and how to receive the amount that appeared on your mobile screen.

"I'm going to need someone to explain what the hell is going on and send me a check. I have a penguin-shaped megayacht waiting for me," the man wrote in a tweet addressed to both the official Coinbase and Rocket Bunny accounts. In an email later sent to Coinbase and shared with Fox 5, the new 'billionaire' assured the platform team that if they decided to pay him, he would invite them all to his megayacht, the construction of which he planned to order custom-shaped. penguin.

This Monday the "display error" showed him that his Rocket Bunny reserves had multiplied to 173 billion dollars, but Williamson could not carry out any operation, because his account was temporarily frozen while the technical team worked on his case.
The man reported that Coinbase responded to him only after his story received extensive media coverage and that, try as he might, he was unable to move his Rocket Bunny to convert it to Ethereum. "I was able to move Ethereum, but every time I try to move the Rocket Bunny cryptocurrency it malfunctions and it won't let me do it. Again no help from Coinbase. It's like I've been blacklisted," Williamson told Newsweek, stressing that the The problem does not have to do with Rocket Bunny, but only with the trading platform.
In any case, whatever the outcome of his situation, Williamson already has a great story to tell his grandchildren: that for a few days, in the summer of 2021, he was a billionaire who was about to buy a yacht. giant in the shape of a penguin.
