    Good for him if he is, but hopefully he diversifies at least some of it out of bitcoin.

    True. I mean it’s not like Bitcoin could ever break $70k right. Oh wait……

    And Micon is big in NFT too. His Twitter avatar is literally a $500,000 gem.
    It's hilarious that we as a society think everyone can be a dr, a lawyer, an engineer. Some people are just fucking stupid. Why can't we just accept that?

    I think he said years ago anyone from forum poker rooms is forever in his rear view mirror. He has not participated in anything related to the forums in a decade. I don't think he is disgruntled, I believe he simply does not give a shit about his former forum life.

    i believe he made promises to do so for all the right reasons.

    From what I could tell, he converted much of his BTC into BCH about 4 years ago.

    He is friends with Roger Ver, co-creator of Bitcoin Cash. In late 2017, Micon was bashing bitcoin and saying it was going to crash in 2018 because the public was pumping it up too much for speculative purposes. He was right, but unfortunately BCH crashed even worse. For awhile the theme of his tweets was anti-BTC and very pro-BCH. I took this to mean that he thought BCH was the future, and had moved much of his BTC into that. Since BCH has had a recovery post-2018 crash, if he held a lot of BCH and didn't get rid of it, he should still be doing very well.

    These are just guesses. I may be completely wrong, but all the signs pointed to it. After that I really didn't keep up with what he was tweeting for the past few years, so I don't know what he's doing presently other than NFTs.

    Bitcoin going on a Heeb run is an even better reason to diversify.

    Well, Sounds like Micon apologized to Negreanu so anything is possible. Go to the 3:30 mark.

    Paging Mr. Witteles........ Any chance we could get a PFA exclusive video of you approaching Micon at the WSOP and offering the olive branch ? Perhaps Drexel and/or DirtyB could join you. If he doesn't accept and screams at you ala Mason Malmuth did to him back in the day, PFA still wins. Whadda ya say Druff ?

    Generally the most important ingredient to becoming wealthy are the connections you make or have. Family, friends, business contacts/relationships. This fact is indisputable. Wealth creation in isolation is an anomaly.

    NickyPipes knows.

    I find humans generally annoying so this is a lesson that came later than it should have.

    Micon made tremendous social connections. People with enormous means and others with big brains in that space.

    I tip my cap.

    Micon currently making a semi-deep run in the razz event. Top 10 stack with 55ish left.

    I honestly wouldn’t be surprised if he was playing better knowing the money isn’t that important to him now.

    The best thing that ever happened to me was sparring with a Moroccan K1 guy in Krabi Thailand when I was just a young lost kid trying to take out some anger

    We all can see Druff lack of business acumen when he uses Brian Micons association with a major player in the crypto industry as a negative/ proof he’s not “that rich”

    Do you understand that “major players” “whales” “sharks” aren’t “friends” and “associates” with “guppies” and “nobodies”

    Don’t you think both those guys had trunk loads of bitcoin and bitcoin cash?

    Micon ran a BITCOIN POKER ROOM

    do you think he only had 50 bitcoin?

    There is a realistic chance the guy had tens of thousands of bitcoin, maybe more, I don’t really know

    He has an absolute fortune, at this point everybody realizes that and is happy for him. He was kind of a “screw up” from what I can tell.

    Here is the difference between Brian Micon and Dan Druff

    Druff: Dodgers down 2-0 in 1st inning “boo hoo I blame management, it’s all over pack your bags, seasons done, was doomed from the start. No point in even watching”

    Micon: Bitcoin is $5, completely off radar “I think this crypto thing is the future, I will tell all my friends and associates to invest and dedicate my life to this. I BELIEVE”

    My favorite Connor McGregor quote is where a journalist asks him what he would say if somebody told him this would all happen. All his dreams would come true, he’d “make it”

    “Stripping it all back, what would you say at the start of your career if somebody told you’d this would all happen, you’d make it, you’d wind up here!” (Paraphrasing)

    “I believe you, because I did believe”

    Whether you like it or not, Micon always believed. He put it all on the line and cashed in like a BOSS

    how many of you would have stood up to the pressure of the FEDS raiding your house with your wife and kids inside?

    Would you have even made it to the police station before you started to Chirp like a bird?

    Is there a man on this forum that would have had the courage to move his family to Aruba and have a big shot lawyer negotiate his return?

    Not a man born to his mother other than Brian Micon had the heart and courage to make that happen for himself and his family and the needs and virgins on this forum should respect that

    Nicky Pipes respects Brian Micon.

    Congrats to Brother Micon for working on restoring the legacy of this community after recent (ahem) developments!

    Brother how do you think “Dan Druff” is feeling right now?

    Still typing away how most of the “vast riches” were converted to Bitcoin Cash?

    I think Brother Druff has successfully privately dealt with the feelings surrounding Brother Micon being the Most Successful of the NWPers after cmoney's death, but his Ali-like return to the WSOP has likely been unsettling.

    Not helped by Brother Micon encroaching on his territory with hotel room complaints, even upping the ante with a video instead of just word salad about air conditioners.

    Coincidence that his body is treating the COVID booster like SuperAIDS laced with swine flu?

    Brother I think not.

    Micon was on camera in today's Negreanu vlog. They were sitting side by side at an event.

    Brother I agree, Micon has been extremely well received at this years WSOP. I am glad for him, I’m sure it’s a dream come true
