Just thought i’d share this incase anyone else does this. Last night i was slightly tipsy and i was on eBay and i seen guys were selling small amounts of BTC for 3 times current value and people were buying this. I stupidly jumped on and thought i can make a little profit selling at a fairer price - my eBay blew up and i sold 100 x 0.0018 within 2 hours.

Stupid mistake to make - need to learn to stay off the laptop after a bunch of drinks
Hopefully this saves someone from being as daft as me.
