Being a millionaire is nothing.
Lets assume the average age of a developer is young 30's. by the time they retire, a million won't buy much at all.

Given inflation if someone currently aged 30 starts a mortgage on an average house now, they will probably be a millionaire in property assets alone by the time they retire.

Yeah autobahns are cool but am I right in thinking that German car insurance has clauses that it becomes invalid over about 90mph?
When I worked in Bavaria some years ago I was told yes you can drive at 100+mph but if you have an accident it could financially ruin your life as at that speed its out of your pocket.

Nobody is stopping you doing your hobby.

What they are stopping is companies that abuse employees by having an employment contract and pay rate for a nominal 40 hour week, but then they punish those that stick to the contract by not working more hours for free.

What they are also correcting is the mass brainwashing of the middle classes that working for free and 60+ hour weeks is somehow something to be admired/looked up to.

Well see that's the thing about a bitcoin wallet with a few million in... Its VERY easy to hide then when the shit has died down, later recover it and untraceably sell the bitcoins.

The only thing the cops would have to go on would be after the suspect starts selling them, by watching any bank account they have access to and how it suddenly got a bunch of dollars credited to it. I'm sure there are plenty of ways around that if the suspect was even slightly clever about it. (offshore companies/anonymous bank accounts etc). Even just doing a few bucks every now and then rather than an high visibility giant transfer might be enough.
