” One secret has been revealed. Unfortunately, Ryne Lichmus has lost the keys and cannot access these hundreds of millions. If you can somehow help him get them back, he's willing to share them with you,” wrote Conor Grogan on the X social network.
Lychmus bought the cryptocurrency in 2014 during the Ethereum ICO, when the value of 1 ETH was about 30 US cents. And on November 10, 2021, the asset traded at $4,878, according to CoinGecko. If the founder of LHV Bank sold 250,000. ETH, he would have earned approximately $1.22 billion.
