Two or three months back, an Old School Runescape player who passes by mazrim_lol on Reddit guaranteed that a “genuine information rupture” had made him lose 45 billion coins on his fundamental record. His cases were expelled by various different players, a few of whom proposed that it was his own blame for not having the record legitimately anchored, or that he may lie about it totally.
