Worried about your Bitcoins? A Swiss cryptocurrency trader can store them in a nuclear bunker


Since the Swiss government allowed private firms to buy or rent some of the country’s fallout shelters built during the Cold War period, a lot of new original businesses have popped up. One of them was created by a cryptocurrency trader that decided to use some of the 7,000 available bunkers to safely store digital coins, allowing super-secure mining and trading as well.

Richard Porubcan is the pseudonym of this Swiss entrepreneur, according to Forbes, who’d rather not reveal his true identity. Although this could evoke some suspicions, the trader seems legit: he runs a successful virtual currency mining operation called GMP, which attracts investment through a website called Cryptostocks, and maintains regular contact with his many shareholders.

His operation has a “white” rating on the exchange, which means that he has been playing by the rules and paying back to his investors. Forbes reports that his business is located in a German-speaking part of Switzerland called Kreuzlingen.

That is the most stupid thing I ever read. You do realise that bitcoin is just a number which gets slightly bigger every day until 2140, right? It doesn’t exist in the physical world – otherwise it wouldn’t squeeze through your internet cable. Why would you need to protect a number on the blockchain, or a pair of strings of letters and numbers, from physical damage? Are you going to backup your wallet’s private keys to a memory card, and give it to some guy who won’t tell you his name to “look after” it for you in a dripping… Read more »


That’s just retarded.
DOn’t trust a person with a pseudonym.

Better buy your own bunker in Switzerland, they’re cheap.
