Aaron Selenica, 21, says he “fell into the crypto craze” last fall after hearing about Bitcoin from his friends and joining the University of Connecticut’s crypto club. He saw ads for Voyager at the school’s basketball games and eventually invested about $15,000 in Bitcoin on the platform.
Now, his holdings are worth about $6,900 and he doubts he’ll even be able to get that back. He knew investing in crypto came with risks, but he never expected the platform to collapse.
“It feels like I was robbed,” he said. “I just don’t understand how this could be legal. I’m not going to invest on another platform. I’m done with crypto.”
