It's been over 2 years since my mission and the end of the charity project pineapplefund.org, where I donated most of my Bitcoin.
I have never chased wealth or fame, so all my donations have been anonymous.
Life is a series of events, sometimes mystical.
Briefly about my situation, now my family and I are in quite a difficult situation! I lost access to a laptop with a lot of information that was part of my life, as well as access to a cold wallet with more than 2000 bitcoins! These were my last savings at Bitcoin.
It just so happens that now I have to start my whole life again, and I have a long and hard way to go.
I really hope that I can get access to my cold wallet.
I need about 25 BTC to solve my problems and develop further, it's only almost 0.05% of the amount I donated from the Pineapple Fund.
I never thought that I would ever have to ask for help because I had a fortune, but there are different situations in life, and today I want to ask everyone who cares about my activities and everyone who has received help from me.
Friends, I have been kind to you and I really hope that you will answer me the same and help me in my difficult situation. I believe in the boomerang effect.
Do not remain indifferent!
I believe in miracles and kindness, because lately I have been helping to believe in miracles and to do good for many people around the world!
Pineapple Fund Story
Pineapple Fund was an experiment in philanthropy with cryptocurrency wealth. What happens when your 'play-money' becomes a treasure chest, and you're past the satiety point of money?
I decided to donate the majority of my cryptocurrency to charities around the world, with an open application process and funding charities big and small. I focused on causes I believe in, or causes I know will work from my experiences.
Timed with the 2017 crypto bubble, 5104 BTC was turned into $55 million for charities. I'm happy and proud of the impact that will come, mostly thanks to the amazing charities and the dedicated people behind them.
I'm going to remain anonymous, because the point of the Pineapple Fund is not me. I consider this project a success. If you're ever blessed with crypto fortune, consider supporting what you aspire our world to be :)
$55 750 000
"On a larger scale, the Pineapple Fund created a more mysterious form of cryptocurrency philanthropy.
The organization was started in December by an anonymous donor who goes by the nickname “Pine” and claims to be among the 250 largest holders of Bitcoin in the world. The fund aims to give away $86 million worth of Bitcoin, and has already given $20 million worth of the currency to 13 organizations, including million-dollar donations to the Water Project, which provides clean water to people in sub-Saharan Africa, and the Electronic Frontier Foundation, a digital rights watchdog.
(These donations can be verified thanks to Bitcoin’s digital ledger system, which records every transaction in a public database.)
Whoever Pine is, he or she seems to have found a way to convert Bitcoin into something actually useful.

Who are you and why?
Somewhere in the first days of bitcoin's existence I saw a promise of decentralized money and decided to buy/sell with magic internet tokens. Expectations of crushing income from bitcoins over the years led to much more money than I could spend at that moment, and I donated most of my bitcoins, and just recently under unforeseen circumstances I lost all my other bitcoins along with my laptop.
What are you doing now that you don't have any more big money?
I used to donate most of my money to charity. For your information, the Pineapple Fund was bigger than the whole market bitcoin hat when I came in, and it was one of the richest 250 bitcoin addresses that day.
At the time, I didn't think I could end up in this situation.
Now I'm working and trying to recover from the shock. I believe in miracles and I really hope that someday I will be able to access the lost bitcoins.
The collected bitcoins will be used to solve my current problems and also to work on restoring access to the lost bitcoins.
How many bitcoins do you have now?
I don't have anything right now, so I'm asking for help.
The Pineapple Fund represented most of my crypto-currency holdings, and recently I lost the remaining bitcoins with my laptop.
Why do you remain anonymous?
Advertising has never been the meaning of the foundation, and I don't want fame. I am a simple person and in my life I am very modest, nobody knew about my savings at bitcoin or Pineapple Fund, only my family, they always supported me in all my endeavors.
I have a request from the media...
Feel free to email the contact in this domain and I will get back to you!
Why is the name Pineapple Fund?
I'm very fond of pineapples. Did you know that pineapples contain high levels of bromelin, which proved to be anti-inflammatory, relaxing and digestive?!
