MrBeast learned a valuable lesson when a thief broke into his house and made off with $2 million.
MrBeast isn’t strapped for cash, he’s one of the top-subscribed YouTubers.
Just because he doesn’t mind giving it away doesn’t mean he doesn’t want it taken from him.
MrBeast recalled being robbed when he sat down for an interview on the YouTube channel Flagrant, when he was hanging out with the hosts and was asked why he had adetachment from money.
The YouTuber pointed out the differences between money and material objects.
As someone who likes to sleep in a bed, eat dinner at a table and scroll social media on a phone, I have to disagree but MrBeast did at least explain that he was referring to luxuries like fancy cars.
He only realised his lack of need for fancy clothes and cars after he filled his wardrobe with designer clothes that someone chose to break into.
MrBeast explained that he saw his front door had been kicked in and his TV and clothes had been taken.
The first thing that came to his mind was all of the money he had wrapped up in the digital currency.
You might think that the coin would be protected by a password, but MrBeast wasn’t smart enough at the time to keep that password hidden.
It said “Bitcoin private key”, which was a reference to the fact that the YouTuber had recently made public his ownership of the digital currency.
It was his lucky day when he loaded up his computer, which was still there.
The thief was able to move the Bitcoins into a more secure location because they hadn’t gotten their hands on them.
Don’t write them right next to the thing you’re trying to protect, at least if you have to.
