What's the most you've lost in a rugpull?

Initial investment around 5k. Total devalued: 50k

I just bought my first honeypot token on Base. Only put in $40 and it hasn't rugged yet but it's painful watching it go up and being unable to sell. Better luck next shitcoin I guess.

Not a literal rugpull, but I lost $350,000 last year on a single trade.
I'm completely dead inside.

>> No.58359304

Not a rug but I've lost 120k worth of ordinals and BTC this run (I am still above 6 figures on other investments) because I didn't do an xverse hot wallet backup (I have external backups). My distro on my fucking mac crashed and i configured it to inherit secure boot so now I literally can't crack it open, I would need the fucking CIA to do it for me

First day, and also before checking backups, it felt like my entire life was lost. Told myself had I not had in order backups, would have thought about killing my self

Hard lesson learned

Nope. Wasn't even crypto.
Most expensive lesson of my entire life.
Nobody in my life even knows about it outside of one close friend.
Bright side is I don't have to pay taxes on any of my crypto gains until I make that back, so there's that.

lost $1000 in Lady Luck

it was a lottery style gambling coin but it was retweeted from Chainlink's official account because of the use of Chainlink VRF for the random number generator so i figured with that "endorsement" it wasn't a rug

it ran for a few cycles, paid out a few winners then rugged and Chainlink deleted evidence soon after out of embarrassment

It was part of what helped me realize Chainlink probably wasn't going anywhere - I started selling soon after and in hindsight the whole Lady Luck scam was a top signal taking place almost exactly at the ATH of Link

Ultimately I'm glad I got rugged because $1000 was nothing in the end and saved me from bagholding Link all the way down and losing a lot of profit
