In November 2017, Perth was gripped by Bitcoin fever. Not one to miss out on a get rich quick scheme, Dawren made the ultimate sacrifice, he sold his Hi-Lux and bought 1 bitcoin for $7,300.
In just one month, Dawren’s investment had reached an astronomical $19k, shit was about to get real. After telling all his supervisors to suck his dick in the crib room, Dawren quit his well paying FIFO gig to focus on being a cryptoboss.
Being 100% sure the price of BTC would hit $50k in a few months, Dawren upgraded his lifestyle – he leased an entry-level Mercedes, he bought BCOIN007 personalised plates and a proudly rocked a 9ct gold chain from Zamels. He had it all.
He was quick to embrace his new identity as a swaggering fuckhead that dished out unsolicited investment advice on social media, after all, he had climbed the beanstalk of financial freedom and he had slain the giant nagging doubt that this was all too good to be true.
As several of his baby-mummas can testify to, Dawren was never one to pull out, and ultimately that would be his downfall. Instead of selling his crypto at the peaks of its value, he held onto it as desperately as Goerge Pell with a new bar of soap in the shower.
By February 2018, he was back in the red, but repayments on an entry level Mercedes and an Afterpaid trip to Bali weren’t going to just disappear. So he channelled the spirit of the crypto-lord and did what they did best, bought $6000 worth of gear on the dark web.
He went from the tattooed-foot investor to just a criminal overnight and used the illusion of his success to trick the dumbest cunts from his past life into giving him money to invest in more “crypto” (meth). Sure, he’d just let a crackhead suck him off to settle the money owing on a point, but they didn’t know that – all they saw was the glamour.
As it turns out, he wasn’t very good at selling meth either, within 2months things went south for the former $10,000-aire, and after trying to flog an 8ball to an undercover officer at Rockingham station, Dawren landed himself a little stretch at Hotel Hakea.
From “large and in charge” to “charged and convicted”, he had a wild ride. When asked if Dawren had any regrets, he told us, “the meth, probably”.
