Sriki also boasted of a fabulous lifestyle, claiming to have made over 20K Bitcoin in profits but spent it all on the lifestyle of luxury. He explained,

“I didn’t save anything. Blew it up on the luxurious lifestyle which I continued by spending around Rs 1 to Rs 3 lakh a day on alcohol and hotel bills on average. The price of bitcoin during the time of this hack was around $100 or $200, which I shared with my friend Andy from the UK.”

He ran out of luck towards the end of 2020 where his associates were arrested on some other charges which later led to him and opened the Pandora box.
