Abandoned $4.2m mansion of ‘crypto millionaire’ discovered

An urban explorer has discovered the abandoned mansion which is believed to have been deserved by a crypto millionaire.

The extensive mansion – estimated to be worth $4.2 million (£3.14 million) – is complete with a wooden spiral staircase, an indoor hot tub, and a room for mining Bitcoin.

Explorer Dave, known as Freaktography online, explored the southern Ontario, Canada property, sharing footage on YouTube with his 85,000 followers.

“Once a symbol of opulence and wealth, the mansion now stands decrepit and forgotten, shrouded in an aura of mystique,” Dave told Need to Know.

“It is rumored that the infamous ‘Crypto King’ vanished without a trace, leaving behind an empire of shattered dreams and abandoned crypto projects.”

The unknown owner had a large set up in the basement, complete with hundreds of empty boxes for SD cards and other tech equipment.

Also found on the property were thousands of medical-grade masks and surgical gowns, brand new and in boxes.

The home is currently listed as vacant land for development, with the home falling into decay.

Dave added: “As we stepped cautiously through the crumbling ruins, we stumbled upon an unexpected twist – there were signs of someone squatting there.

“A squatter had made this forsaken mansion their home, adding an extra layer of intrigue to our exploration.”

Sharing his incredible find on YouTube, Dave gained over 8,000 views as fans rushed to comment.

One person said: “I find it weird that all that crypto-mining stuff so hidden and wasted GPUs you found down there seems to evoke the same feeling one would get if they stumbled across an abandoned meth lab while doing urban exploration.”

Jeannie added: “It’s pittyful the way people destroy peoples properties.” [sic]

“I wonder what the deal was with all the medical stuff?” commented Bob.

“I liked the house and the pool and tennis courts if done up could be a great house,” said Jonathan.
