Man Robbed of $1.8 Million in Ether at Gunpoint

I'm lil bit disappointed this morning. Someone robbed my account in coins.ph(e-wallet we use in Philippines). Somebody turned my cash to bitcoin and send it to his wallet. How could somebody done that without my authority or knowledge. I have my account secured and everything.

Is there anybody here can help me tract the gainer of my money?

[uncensored-r/Bitcoin] I was robbed on Blockchain wallet and not so sure how it happened.

The following post by cool1007 is being replicated because some comments within the post(but not the post itself) have been silently removed.
The original post can be found(in censored form) at this link:

The original post's content was as follows:
Hi,
I am not looking for people to trash me or talk smugly at me, I realized I made quite a few mistakes, probably the most important one is not being an expert in cryptocurrencies or a super tech savvy (or at least a decent one, heh). I am sharing this story to warn people so they can be smarter than me.
Today I decided to enter my blockchain wallet and try to secure it even more because I planned to buy some more bitcoin. First grave mistake, I did not have 2FA enabled because it was not a big quantity I had (about $130 worth). I did not remember the URL address so I Googled it and clicked the first link that showed, it was an ad for blockchain.com (see image https://flic.kp/21uoHtN).
The site looked legit, so I logged in my wallet and asked for email authorization. I checked my email, I got an email from blockchain.info asking me to authorize the login. Notice the screenshot https://flic.kp/21xaZpn , the IP the site says I am requesting the authorization. I am not using a static IP, it changes frequently and I did not know at that moment what my IP was. I click authorize and enter the site.
Here, blockchain.info shows me a screen that they had received 2 authorization requests, one on the left side with the IP I showed you above, and the "current" request coming from a different IP (my real IP) on the right side. I was puzzled, but stupid as I am, did not think anything wrong with it, I authorized the entry. By the time I did that all my alarms fired off, closed the browser. Entirely. This time, I entered the site by typing the address blockchain.info (now that I remembered) and logged in. I received a new authorization email (from the same source) but this time it says it comes from a different IP (my real one, check image https://flic.kp/Zs2TVo). I hit authorize and entered to find I have an active transaction which sent all my wallet balance to 2 different wallets.
I decided to research the IP from which the first authorization request came from, I saw it is an IP from Trinidad and Tobago :( ... so there you go, someone there pulled a scam on me, easy as pie.
You can check the transaction here: https://blockchain.info/tx/1e93bb16f25c3209dd65357d8237594b0ac2ee2b6af056dcdbe0f35ddf717edd
My heart stopped. You might think $130 is not much (my initial investment was like $50), but to me, it was a decent amount. I earn about $600 a month, I live in Ecuador, not in the first world. I work from home because I have Osteogenesis Imperfecta type III so I am confined to a wheelchair. Companies don't hire people that need help even to go to the bathroom.
Anyways, that's it. The scam was very well done, I used to feel proud of being able to spot them miles away, but not this time. So, BE CAREFUL. Activate all your securities, double check URLs. If your instinct tells you something is wrong, LISTEN TO IT.
I hope this helps someone else :(

How do I prevent someone from stealing all my bitcoin at gunpoint?

If someone steals the cash I am carrying, it's only a fraction of my money. If they steal my credit card, I can call and block it, and whatever they purchase in the meantime is insured. What happens if someone makes me transfer him all of my bitcoin at gunpoint? How can I get it back at a later point. Has the system considered that possibility?

My life story since no one wants to listen irl. post yours!

So im 19, im from Birmingham in the UK. I did pretty well in school up in till 16, I went to an all boys school (not one that you pay for but you had to pass a test to get in). I did well in my exams at 16. I was selling packs off the dark web at the time, giving them to a dealer (my age) who would sell them and then return the money plus some profit to me (he screwed me multiple times after about 30 runs). This involved buying bitcoin and the guy who I was buying it from offered me a job where I would take orders using natwest "get cash" at the ATMs which allowed you to put in a 6 digit code and get up to £130 from the atm, this meant I had his login and acces to some of his bitcoin. I did this for about 4 months before the guy who was selling for me (weed, MDMA and cocaine) got me into weed and I stole the bitcoin in the wallet (£2,400) for me to buy weed with (I was buying an oz every day for weeks). I then set up the guy selling bitcoin and robbed him for £5000 after sixth form (school). Which I ended up getting kicked out of for having weed on me.
I was then addicted to weed and to get money for it I would steal off my parents, this went on for months with me stealing 1000s of pounds and smoking kilos on kilos untill eventually they disowned me at 17 and left me on the streets. I had now met some serious gangsters (who stabbed people, one had been to prision for an attempted murder) and he let me stay at his house. To make money to survive he suggested I do county lines (going to a village/town in the countryside to sell crack and heroin for a gang) I did this and long story short the gang tried to do me over so I robbed them and came back to birmingham. This gangster was sick of me staying at his place so I got into a care home. Whilst I was there I robbed a food delivery truck to eat. I also got into lots of fights and ended up getting stabbed twice in the legs and beaten up many times. I ended up getting kicked out of the care home for breaking the rules three times and ended back on the streets sleeping in a car. There was a service provided by the council where I met up with my parents once a week to talk and they eventually let me stay at home again.
I continued to smoke lots of weed and ended up developing cannabis psychosis where I was hearing voices (I had also taken acid many times this is definatley a factor) but the voices got worse and worse and I was talking to them all day and night and my parents took me to a hospital for an assessment. They ended up sectioning me (forcing me to go to mental hospital against my will) and I ended up staying there for 3 months (I even made a VLOG ). Once I was released I had no friends really as the gangster ones were mostly toxic manipulative people so I cut them off and I didnt talk to anyone from school. I was depressed and alone for months untill I rekindled it with and old school friend and we ended up taking MDMA together a few times and one of the gangsters who was good became close again. My depression also went (permanatley) away after taking ketamine (its a miracle drug) and my life is good now. If you read this far I love you leave a comment!

I've just set up a bitcoin wallet but it seems dodgy

I just googled 'set up bitcoin wallet' and the default google answer gives you directions on how to set up a Coinomi wallet.
So I set one up but the 'buy' button (for buying bitcoins) is greyed out, so I went onto their subreddit to ask for advice and there's a few people saying their coins got robbed. Looks like a scam?
Does anyone know where I can find a hassle-free, easy to download & use bitcoin wallet that isn't going to rip me off?
Thanks in advance for any replies

What am I missing?

I’ve done a fair bit of reading on Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies. I understand the concept (I think!) and the technology, but what I struggle with is why some proponents of Bitcoin (and other cryptos) believe this will become a ‘currency’ in the way most people understand one?
When I read about the price of a Bitcoin going to $1k, $10k, $100k.... it seems to me that people treat it as an asset rather than a currency. There’s always a lot of talk of people holding (or ‘hodling’).... what are they doing? Waiting for it to reach even bigger valuations? Do they then plan to cash in their Bitcoins for regular fiat cash? That’s not a currency, that’s an investment - and one that relies on the oft-quoted ‘greater fool theory’, i.e. tulip fever.
Aside from these thoughts, if we were to think of it as a currency, where’s the protection for the owner? For example, if I have money in the bank, it’s protected (to a degree), if the bank gets robbed or if I’m the victim of fraud, in most cases my money is protected. Even if the bank folds, the government still guarantee a certain amount.
With Bitcoin, there’s so many stories of wallets being compromised, people losing keys, exchanges going bust or getting hacked or being found out to be scams. Where’s the protection? If I forget the password to my online banking, there’s no way the bank will say “tough, you’ll never see your money again”, I can just reset it with some security checks - but that does not seem to be the case with Bitcoin keys.
One other question I had - there’s not just Bitcoin, there’s lots and lots of cryptocurrencies now. I can’t just start printing my own money (well I can, but it would have zero real-world value) but anyone can create a coin and run an ICO. What is making people think it’s a good idea to exchange dollars for some made-up coin? Are they, like Bitcoin speculators, just taking a gamble that the price will increase and they can offload their holding for ‘real’ cash?
TLDR - Is anyone actually using Bitcoin and other cryptos as currency in the way most people understand, or are they all just speculators in a tulip-style bubble that will ultimately only benefit a small minority?
I’m very interested in the technology and find it all quite fascinating, but I just can’t see this catching on with the masses. I bought a small amount of Bitcoin (BTC 0.0001) purely out of interest in the process and how it all works, but I can’t see what advantage this is over ‘traditional’ cash?
I want to ‘get it’ - but I just don’t! Please help me understand. Thanks!

When will Bitcoin be focusing on improving privacy?

I think bitcoin has a BIG problem with fungibility and being so traceable.
Will this ever be improved on the core itself or we will need workarounds offering pseudo-privacy forever which are clearly not good and most users will never use them?
Bitcoin's traceablilty, lack of fungibility and it's public transparent ledger are really big problems which make it impossible to be adopted as a common currency.
I can, for example, know how wealth is the person who I'm paying. Criminals could choose who they want to rob by knowing the exact ammount this person holds and who this person is paying (possible new victims).
In addition, a bussiness could check your funds and raise the price based on your wealth.
Also Bitcoin is not fungible which means that a bitcoin that may come from a criminal source could easily end up in your wallet; say you sell a product and this criminal buys you (nothing wrong here, you recieve a payment and he recieves a product). Now imagine the police catches this criminal and follows the trace of his payments, you could end up as suspect because you recieved a payment from his address...
These problems, like the non-existent privacy, make Bitcoin a very bad option as a currency. There are few workarounds like coinjoin, but they make the system less usable.
