During their lifetime the average person works 70.000 - 80.000 hours. So 5 years spent sleeping and never having to work again is a bargain.


craigybacha

It depends what age you are, if you've already worked 60,000 hours then 5 years of your life is probably too much to give up.


AriesWinters

Yep right now as an orphan with no close family ties, I'd take the deal no questions asked. But if I were close to retirement with a loving family, I'd probably choose differently


Adler4290

> close to retirement with a loving family The odds of that for me is worse than BTC to 100k within 5 years.


TomodachiOZ

Its all depend upon age afterall, on what age you are asked to sacrifice, than going to matter ! Whatsover, a 30 year old guy would definitely go for this offer, I mean I am talking for myself


Hairy_S_TrueMan

Depends on how you value work time. If working is the same or worse as being knocked out, then the math is easy. If you find work fulfilling or at least better than nothing, it's much harder. I prefer not to work, but I find I'm a lot happier when I am. There are some brain chemicals I can only get through productivity it seems


povhpower

I am a guy with all the lazy habits, spending father's money like a bad son ! So if someone offers me to sacrifice 5 years for 100 BTC and ETH, then yeah, I would surely gonna go for it !


ghostofthepast450

I already don't have a life.so gladly would take the offer. Edit:Thank u for the awards for confessing that I'm a loser.


Laughingboy14

I see this as an absolute win


[deleted]

Who needs to live above 85 years anyway, at that age you just want to fuck off this cursed planet because you're bored.


surrender_the_juice

85? I’ll be lucky to make it to 70.


Hawke64

After crypto trading I am going to die of old age at 45.


EarningsPal

Can a trader keep up with a holder over 10 years?

Meanwhile Henry Kissinger will be 100 years old in 10 months

At what cost though?

Every dead Cambodian added 1 month to his lifetime

People like that always live the longest.


meeleen223

Another bullrun and I will be too, last one I aged 10 years in a year

You okay buddy ?

No :(


Nobody_37_8

Eeesh, I don't know how to proceed with this conversation without being intrusive, sorry that you aren't okay and you can share if you want to


ecky--ptang-zooboing

Send him a Bitcoin, that should cheer him up


rubenvanherpen

That's just so me here man, I want to get rid of it earlier.


n0vast0rm

Assuming you only read the title. This is not about losing the last 5 years of your life, this is about getting BTC and ETH and being put to sleep (Cryo? induced coma? no one knows) for 5 years. Then when you wake up will be rich because apparently the price of BTC and ETH when you wake up in 5 years is already known.


Orngog

No I think you're missing it, you lose five years *now*.


GrnGeko

Not that they are bored, they are always tired and don't have energy to do anything much.


ecky--ptang-zooboing

IKR?! And I love sleeping, a 5 year nap sounds amazing, even without the crypto


iamwizzerd

Haha right, like what do you think I'm at work for??


PrinceZero1994

As long as my body is kept is reasonable shape then YES.


meeleen223

Put my body in a cryogenic chamber, leverage Neuralink and upload my mind on metaverse(not Zuck's) and I'll take the offer


AriesWinters

Future is now old man


partymsl

I have a life but it's not worth much at all and actually pretty exhausting. So I will gladly take the offer to skip the next 5 years as they don't seem good either.


Bucksaway03

5 years for millions.....even with a sick life that'd be hard to pass up.


Vipu2

Im already wasting MORE than 5 years of my life to get LESS money. So hell yeah I would take this deal.


Chesterbobby

This sub is getting dumber by the day.


563847293810

It’s all about the moons, nothing else. All of these 2-3 paragraph text post, *all* of them, be it indulge-in-fantasy (like this one) or some other anecdotal or pocket-philosophy “analysis” or whatever straight up contradictory nonsense, is only designed to get engagement by appealing to the lowest common denominator. It’s cheap, low effort content churned out on the daily, which turns a very slight profit because it’s operated by some 3rd world click farming center. Might as well just bring back the memes.


StinkRod

It's so god damn dumb. Why is the question about crypto at all? It's just a question "would you go to sleep for 5 years for $X million dollars?" These types of questions make me realize how childish so many people in this sub are, especially when it comes to thinking about money.


timomies

It would be more interesting to ask would you take the deal if you didn't know what they are worth after 5 years.


RollinDeepWithData

Yea this would be a much better question. OP really fucked this up.

Rokey76

I would DCA into more lottery tickets.


Alanski22

It definitely shows how desperate the average person here is. If you live a happy and successful life you would not give up 5 years of that for more money. These posts show that a lot of people are banking on crypto to change their lives from bad to good, and that is worrisome.


EdgarAllenBoone

That’s what I’m thinking. No way I’d give up 5 years of my life!


563847293810

ArtifexR

Seriously. Most people spend millions trying to prolong their lives a couple of years. 100 ETH would be great be in reality most people just want to live and be healthy and have their basic needs met. Trading about health for some money sounds tempting, but only when you're like 19.


IsaacWatts88

Normally yes, but my kids are young and 5 years I'd miss too much, so no. Money can't replace that lost time.


hjallday182

You could buy new kids.


AriesWinters

Congrats, you're on a list now


Woodpecker3453

Santa's good list?


ILoveAllPenguins

Satan’s*


Mr_Bob_Ferguson

Yeah I’d definitely take this offer if I were single in my 20s though!


Holisticmystic2

I would never give away half my twenties


Available-East-3105

The hours you put at work everyday is time you miss around your kids.


BakedPotato840

I think that helps actually. Lots of people were losing their shit during COVID lockdowns when they were spending too much time with their kids lol


deathbyfish13

Yeah this hits home for me. No way I'm giving up 5 years and missing that good stuff


meeleen223

Every extra day with your loved ones is invaluable, we realize that even more when they're gone


PrinceZero1994

I wish you were my father or mother.


gariant

You can always be the parent you wish you had. My kids are the best part of my life.


DetectiveNickStone

Such a good outlook. That's essentially what I've been trying to do but never thought to word it like that.


dstnman

I’m not crying, you’re crying!


[deleted]

I'm from 1994 too, heck can we be brothers?


wnc_mikejayray

You don’t even know if you only have five years left. It’s a hard no for me as well. My kids being the only reason.


kronus87

I dont even need the coins. Just let me sleep for the next 5 years


yetanotherdave2

People sacrifice more than that for a cigarette every few hours.


getdatassbanned

People will gladly sit in prison for that ammount of money. OP really didnt think this trough


rmsayboltonwasframed

5 years taken from the end of my life? That's a no brainer. 5 years in a coma right now, during my parents twilight years and the formative years of 3 children of close relatives, and a burgeoning romantic relationship that has gone really well for a year (I'm mid 30s with no kids, and this woman might be the last opportunity I have to start a family)? Fuck that. Too many human connections that are invaluable. Besides, how valuable will those coins be if the worst happens and theres legitimately large scale belligerence between world powers? Internet infrastructure will absolutely be a target during the next full scale war. Of course it's unlikely, but we might be on the cusp of something terrible. All in all, OPs proposition doesnt tempt me enough to really consider it.


JustAnIrrelevantDude

Wait... you guys have human connections?


Effective_Series5772

So true ,,, Good point. Even Junk food/Bad food and Vaping sacrifice years and we know it.


[deleted]

Covid alone probably damaged my lung so much that i'll probably die of heart attack in my 60s.


meeleen223

I made a lot of good habbits since started investing in crypto, stopped eating out, stopped smoking cold turkey and buying dumb unhealthy food I really shouldn't be eating and I ate a lot after I quit smoking, only for it to be countered with catching Covid a few times, sucks


Spear-of-Stars

Not today SATAN


Laughingboy14

How about 101 BTC and 101 ETH? *Strokes goatee*


surrender_the_juice

That extra 1 each puts it over the edge for me…. Sign me up.


ChemicalGreek

5 years only? Even if it’s 10 years I’ll take it! You can buy 10 or more years of your life by not having any stress from work because you retired early.


Maleficent-Book-7262

Move this comment to the top. The only people who say money doesn’t buy happiness are broke! 😂


Justin534

What!? Broke people need money. The people that say that are unhappy people with plenty of money.


Stuutje98

Well tbh It's more often the rich people who say that. They can say it because they have enough money to be happy and think they are happy despite the money, but we all know it's actually because of the money. The poor people they know how it is to be poor and know the way to fix their problems is with more money. So money doesn't buy direct happiness, but it takes away your worries and living without worries is a part of happiness


surrender_the_juice

It’s nearly always rich people that say that.


AriesWinters

No surprises there, you'd gladly take this deal if you've lived in poverty


Wildercard

Money doesn't buy happiness, but it can remove a lot of unhappiness.


Odysseus_Lannister

Counter to that, you have no idea when your time is up. 5-10 years off your life moves you closer to death no matter how you slice it.


Mr_Trep

Nope. My kids would grow up without me. My parents would age without me. I would miss many moments with my wife and friends. These things are priceless.


WhompWump

The amount of people in here that just have absolutely nobody in their life... but then I remember a lot of people here are like 19 years old and it makes sense. you wake up 5 years later and your parents are gone that money is going to feel different.


Mr_Trep

Yup i'm heading towards 40... I'm sure my answer would've been different when I was 20. Then again... Who would've known what crypto would become back then.


EmoCryCry

My answer would be very different because, I've been sitting in my basement for 5years doing nothing anyway lol.


Bolek7

Never, lifetime is the most valuable currency. Unless your life is shit.


partymsl

My life is not the worst. But still I can happily skip five years of working to get like a 80k a year and instead get like millions. That's just maths.


DerpJungler

I'm 27 and I plan to work for the next years to accumulate as much money as possible. This scenario guarantees me that I'd get much more while also not having to go through the hassle? Yeah I'd sacrifice 5 years of 2-3 weeks of holidays per year to do it lol


TheD1ceMan

Sleep uninterrupted for 5 years and I am getting paid? Sign me up buddy


DrinkMoreCodeMore

You would have to relearn how to talk and walk and perform basic functions. Would not be worth it imo.


[deleted]

If my wife and I can do it together - we only would miss out on time with our dog, can our dog join too? can he get paid in doge?


DerpJungler

Hey hey wait. What can my cats get? Also, I want to know if someone will take care of them while I sleep and accumulate my BTC and ETH


Archtects

No. I can always make money. I cant buy life. What use is giving up 5 years of your life if once you have all that, you get hit by a car the next day. Money doesn't mean as much as life, putting value on the wrong things and forgetting how important and fleeting life is a big mistake. Wish for more life, Dont wish you could waste it to accumulate things you cant keep hold of when you die. Squid games made a perfect example. People where willing to die horribly just for a chance to be rich. The stupid thing is the rich sitting and watching could have been in the perfect position to help all of those people out. If I gave up 5 years of my life to be obscenely rich. Then id happily help others out who didn't. I dont agree with generational wealth or one person hording money. If everyone was just a little kinder and a bit less greedy this world would be a much nicer place to live. I tip all the moons I accumulate out. I dont need moons, I'm happy and content. I wouldn't give up precious life just for a chance at being rich.


Jocogui

Time is the most valuable asset.


Justin534

You're forgetting how much of our lives a lot of us waste just to create a small portion of that amount. It won't buy happiness but it can afford you a sense of comfort, security, and peace of mind. A certain amount of money is needed for that


Froezt

Except when you have a job you waste wayyy more than 5 years of your life working 9 to 5, this much money in crypto would mean you could retire early and actually do something with life.


LearnDifferenceBot

I wasted 1 year here to get moons so I can buy a weddingring. Still not enough.


Archtects

Ooof. I don’t have many moons left. But have the last of mine. I hope you get it soon :)


Wise_Recover9576

Wow thanks bro


Archtects

Im really sorry its like 4 moons I never get moons anymore from the release lol XD


mrdunderdiver

Get some tungsten rings. Cheap but super cool and can’t hurt em.


Emicron

What use is grinding and grinding if at the end when you finally get comfortable you also get hit by a car?


elstylon

I was going to reply to OP but I don't need to, you just wrote what was in my mind. Money can't buy life.


Longjumping-Quiet-77

Life is even more scarce than bitcoin. This is not a good deal.


Bkokane

Regret in 5 years time


mystixash

2027: BTC - 20$, ETH - .49 cents


uttest2009

Don't make me cry like that, I want this to be come as a fake thing lmao.


Good-Book-6912

Hell yeah. Sign me up. I have often had the idea that I would like to just sleep until I am rich. Mainly because my life sucks, and more money would solve serious problems, like being able to live in an apartment without a lot of noise and a crazy violent neighbour.


Onelinersandblues

Yes. Next question


Harrydinkledorf

Sounds like a way better deal than enlisting in the military. No chance of getting maimed or killed, huge pay out after, no PTSD.


Retr_0astic

You’re basically giving me 30 Million Dollars for 5 years of sleep, that’s not a bad deal. I’ll take Cryo sleep though.


Bpool91

_Crypto sleep_


Explodicle

Cold storage


TarkovReddit0r

I’m 24 so that means losing 5 of my best years to be financial independent rich before 30 Hard question


_DeanRiding

If you're rich then 30 isn't all that different being 25 these days tbh


ComprehensiveEdge578

The best, happiest years for me started in my 30s. I enjoy life way more than I did in my 20s. I still wouldn't give up five years of my life for money. Life is one thing that can never be replaced.


partymsl

I'm just 18 so I basically don't even have to work after this.


Landid218

People sacrifice 4-6 years in the military for less so heck why not


Okinawa14402

Being in military is no where near comparable to sleeping for five years. All your friends and family wouldn’t have seen you for 5 years and some would possibly be even dead.


Landid218

You get: PTSD, bad knees and the equivalent wage of a single cornchip. I get: peace and quiet for 5 years and then enough money to do whatever I want for the rest of my life.


Age_memnon

Being a worker in a hard and stressful job with you wife blaming you for ever financial crisis+drinking and smoking due to stress = -20years of life. Having enough money to say fuck off to everything and everyone would mean that i would regain the lost 20 years and only give 5 of these years to satam so yea, i am gonna be 15 years in profit. Would deffinetly take it


Geolinear

I’ve already sacrificed 5 years to crypto and have neither 1 ETH nor 1 BTC.


BladesAllowed

Sure. Better than 5 in prison


ptmplop

My cat has agreed to it, I'll send his wallet addresses later


Nut_sack_ninja

In a heart beat. I'm going to spend a lot more 5 years stuck working a normal job before I retire. This way I could retire now and spend the rest of my days doing whatever I wanted.


LivingFondant1419

In 5 years most of us will already sell 2 years of that to our jobs for waaaay less money.


PM_ME_CUTE_SM1LE

I’ll gladly do it for free if you extend sleep duration to infinity


Busterlimes

Ive probably already sacrificed 15 to drugs and alcohol, so sure, why the hell not. Take my years


SkaldCrypto

I'd pay 100 BTC for 5 more years.


redneck_comando

Let's do the math. I have 20 years left in the work force. 40 hours a week x 52 weeks x 20 years = 41,600 hours. How many hours in a year? 8,765 hr in a year x by # years I'll sacrifice for bit coin. =43,825 hours. It honestly sounds reasonable.


Jaxsoy

Uhhhhhh yeah… I’d be rich as fuck at 26 years old


Rolling_Repetition

Yes


Layin-the-pipe

I see no downside to this


KindaPC

I already do that because I drink.


vstipic23

Give me the papers, I'll fly over wherever to sign right away. Beats working and despairing for all that time for much less money.


Stlmurph90

Absolutely, working an average job or career would take much longer than 5 years of my life away to build that kind of wealth.


jwz9904

No no no and no


Lobrf1

Bruh skipping 5 years of working full time to not have to work full time again afterwards, sign me up.


Klutzy-Gas3786

Hahaha I’ve been to prison and done that for free. Yes sir, I would definitely for 100 eth


Strict_Ad_2416

I would not if i have to sleep for 5 years because my partner would be alone for that long and i value her more than any amount of money. I would however if i just lose the last 5 years of my normal lifespan because i would gain way more time by not having to work ever again.


probook

No way. My kids are little. I wouldn’t moss these years for anything


sarotphan

Gotta respect you people, I can sacrifice anything for that btc.


[deleted]

[удалено]

36.5million after 5 years? with inflation thats what, like $3.50 no thanks. Ill take the time with my wife and kids.


TillyDanger

Not worth missing out life with my partner. So no


clawrence1158

Good thing brother, we have to live our life like that here.


vonmew

Buddy I've sacrificed 5 years of my life for less $ than that already.


einsteinpubes

I’ll suck your dick for 34 dogecoin


Waxiir95

Nope got a baby coming in February. Wouldn't miss that for the world.


md7951

Well yeah that's something reasonable to me but I will still pass because I have a lot of people in my life and I need to care about them right now, so no for that.


N0tMac

Make it 3 years and you got a deal.


gautam_777

You don't negotiate with Satan.


N0tMac

Oh, didn't know this offer belonged to Satan, i love Satan, where to sign?


gautam_777

We're gonna need some blood.


N0tMac

Take one liter, i don't care.


gautam_777

Satan might just give you a fanboy discount.

Winter-Elderberry657

Hell yeah, I'll be retiring at 35. I'll just need to hit up a rehab clinic after a 5 year coma.


kazkdp

Don't want 100 ETH. Can I have btc instead?


Liarus_

For Bitcoin?, Absolutely!


Darth_Toxess

Well I don't have a lot of responsibility, the only thing that might make me hesitate from taking the offer is my mother and little brother.Damn this is certainly hard to accept, it's like the devil is tempting you.


Live-Confection5552

I’d talk my Missus into doing this no problem.


Solutar

Absolutely not, time is literally the most valuable thing we have.


XnoonefromnowhereX

Crypto already took 10 years off my life


Yuurkoo

Shit for that much money také even 10years off me.


bobi1

Only if I knew how long I have to live. 70+ years yeah take 5; less then 20? No way


Tbeauslice1010

No. What if I took the deal and died immediately because I was going to die in 5 years anyways.


[deleted]

Nice try xi jing ping


saskatchewaniankush

If I could just be put to sleep for 5 years, I'm game. I need a break. As long as it doesn't shorten my overall lifespan, like I get +5 at the end


Bawl_Out

For me no ​ I've already been locked up and time doesn't stop for anyone. I have an actual chance to make the money your promising to me while I'm awake

I won't exchange 5 years of my life even for 100.000 BTC. Not even one year.

Bold of you to assume I haven’t been sacrificing my waking hours, for a pittance in comparison, this whole time


Just_Gaddy

No

No. Time is invaluable.


unnone

I mean in like 8.5 years thats the amount of time in hours youd have slept and worked anyway. You're just frontloading some time.


jwilson146

Lose 5 years of my life so my family will be set for life..... where do I sign


TattooedPolitician

Yes.


badgerinthegarage

Sleep for 5 years? Yes please. Oh and bitcoin- deal


uuonderlust

Can I pick which 5 years? I'll give you 100 - 105. I'll even give you 106 cause I'm nice like that.


PrimarySwan

I wasted the last 7 years for absolutely nothing besides and intimate knowledge of Netflix and Prime libraries. So yes. For 100 BTC you can have 10 years. That's how long ago I turned down 100 BTC for practically nothing.


walkatxsranger

I think we all wasted so much time in the life and i am talking about the majority of the people not about the some billionaire. For people like us i am sure that everyone will take the 100 bitcoin deal here.


SantoSturmio

I mean most people "waste" more than half their life working so..
