Investors gamble on collapsed cryptocurrency

Some Vietnamese are trying to catch the falling knife that is Luna, a cryptocurrency that has lost 98 percent of its value.

Hoai Phuong of the central Quang Tri Province said he invested US$100 in Luna after its price hit $0.00001 Friday night.

"I thought I should try my luck, but I didn’t dare to spend much and I was OK with losing all the money," he said.

The coin was delisted from several exchanges immediately after his purchase.

However, the price rose 10-fold by the next morning. It kept rising until the afternoon when he decided to sell at $0.0005, earning $5,000.

Others shared similar stories on social media of earning thousands of dollars on a wager of a few hundred dollars.

But not everyone was lucky.

Nguyen Thanh of the southern Tra Vinh Province bought 2.5 million Luna tokens on Saturday afternoon at $0.0004.

A day later he sold out after the price dropped to $0.0003, resulting in a $300 loss.

Many experienced traders warn against buying on fear of missing out.

"Luna prices will drop further, and some recent bounces were just a bait," Bang, a trader with five years’ experience and an administrator of a Facebook group on cryptocurrency, said.

"Investors will lose more if they keep buying, because Luna has shown no sign of recovery."

A large number of Vietnamese are investing in Luna, some insiders estimated.

Luna’s crash came as a surprise since it was among the 20 largest cryptocurrencies and many funds invested in it.

After trading at $100 last month it has crashed to near zero now.
