He who hesitates is lost, most of the time. Unfortunately for Richard Sherman, not hesitating cost him a fat pay day. This story by TMZ states that Richard Sherman was accepting Bitcoin on his website as far back as 2013, but converted it all to cash.
…the price per coin was around $2.00 in 2011 … and grew to around $1,000 by the end of 2013. It didn’t really pop again until 2017 — when it soared to more than $19,000 PER COIN!!
I will never know how much Bitcoin he had but I’m going to assume that he had enough that, if he would’ve held off for Bitcoins peak, he could have opened his own damn football league. He could hire Roger Goodell to be his personal bathroom towel boy. He would make it a standard rule that you always run the ball from the 5 when you have the best freaking running back in the NFL and the Shermanator Bowl is on the line.
Unfortunately his net worth is now just a mere $30,000,000. I’m not sure how he is going to make it. Someone told me bologna was going up the other day and I’m not sure how Mr. Sherman is going to take this Earth shattering news.
The next time someone tells you the rich get richer, you tell them about Richard and then tell them to go play in traffic.
I once had the chance to buy Bitcoin when it was around $224. Instead I bought into a a Network Marketing Company and raked in a whopping $2k.
So basically me and ole Richy Rich are going through the same emotions. Call me if you need someone to talk to bro.
