If I were in your case, I would slowly drift from a full-time job (admitting you have one) to a part-time job to some kind of entrepreneur, venture capitalist or patron of the arts.

First, make sure to diversify your wealth: buy some USD, some Gold and Silver (look at Goldmoney.com), other currencies (EUR, GBP, AUD, JPY, CHF), maybe some other cryptcurrencies. I'd also start to consider other ways to invest money like stocks and bonds and physical wealth: land, house, cars, etc...

Once the money is diversified and your career is safe, I would travel a lot to find the place where I would want to buy a house and live for the rest of my life. The traveling part is also necessary to widen your perspective on life. I've done one month alone in Japan, it changed my outlook my life.

I would also pay for some body/mind unity: I'd learn meditation with the best teacher I can find, get the the best massage possibles, start a new sport like Taichi and eat the best possible food. Spoil yourself but try to do it in a healing manner.

Be EXTREMELY CAREFUL OF: drugs, alcohol, prostitues, gambling, ... This can fuarrrk up your life that you will regret being alive (or so I heard). However, I would consider doing some kind of authentic ayahusca retreat. I heard a lot of good about that.

Then I would start to really consider the future. I'd read a ton of book and spend maybe a year or two really opening my horizon as much as possible with that question in mind: "what can I do to help myself and others at the same time?"

I'd love to go on kickstarter, patreon and support any project you want. That's a nice goal, it gets the money circulating but that's not enough.

Once you are grounded in your body, mind and are reasonable with your cashflow, then you can start consider building something for the ages. Don't do anything before a serious crossexamination though.

Anyway, never tell anyone about your exact wealth and get some accountability partner, maybe some kind of psychologist to make 100% sure you are not going insane. People who won the lottery usually ends up in a worst place than they were before. Take that as a warning, people get mad with money.

Let me repeat that point, consider that this money can be the worse thing that will ever happen to you. Do everything you can not to get overwhelmed by it.


So in summary: diversify your wealth, get some accountability partner (I recommend a personal coach/psychologist), travel a lot, take care of your mind, take care of your body and health, widen your intellectual horizons, become the best person that you can be for yourself and for others simultaneously.

I wish you the best life possible but be careful not to get crushed by going there too fast.

I hope you found that useful. If you don't mind, there are always a few books that I want to buy. I cherish the idea of being able to possess The Collected Works of C.G. Jung

I'd back the "donate to free software projects" thing. If you are not lying you could very likely fund some nice stuff for the masses. Also, as the person before said, don't tell people in meatspace at all. They will crawl out of the walls to try and scam you out of your cash. Not even your family. Keep any purchases below the table to everyone except the IRS.

Welcome to the Billionaires Boys Club!
With that kind of money you can make a killing with HFT, especially in the forex markets and futures.

Now seeing as you're sitting on a cozy sum, you should look into moving the funds you wanted to place in cold storage to a cc which offers actual anonymity properties such as XMR being the safest bet, or ZEC being a slightly risky endeavor, to ensure the utmost highest levels of privacy and no chainanalysis gets you got.

For all those giving financial advice (buy gold, convert all to fiat, buy cars), what even?

Well, Musk started with a billion and managed to build the most successful car startup and seems to be on track for getting a human on mars. But unless you're really confident, that's probably too big an ask.
Isn't the sole reason behind Canonical/Ubuntu's existance basically some rich fuarrrk who didn't know what to do with his money? You could start something like that. A sane Linux distribution, with Cubes OS security, Nix package management, a UI designed by people who know something about UI, decent marketing campaign behind it, etc.
Fund whatever entity is responsible for GPL enforcement, I heard they are in dire need of funding.
From my point of view, anything that serves the public good is worth investing into, whether that be software, vidya, green technology, or similar.

Help me kick off my professional poker career Lainon.

Or like, I don't know, buy some nice soykaf and donate a bunch. The important thing is to have fun with it and try not to regret anything that happens. Keep in mind that the other day you didn't have this money and if it were to go away you'd be no worse off than you were. Money creates problems, but if you play it smart and safe you can avoid most of them.

bitcoin is a digital currency, which is created by some computational method by computers over the whole world, and the rate of production varies greatly. In its infancy, creating new bitcoins was relatively trivial, and they were worth almost nothing. Apparently OP was active in bitcoin production back then (or bought a large amount), as he now has a million of them laying around (or at least claims so). Looking at http://www.coindesk.com/price/, a bitcoin is worth just a bit above 1000 dollars at the time of writing, meaning OP is a billionaire now.
