Kerem claims to have lost $ 170k worth of BTC when he forgot to back up the wallet seed phrase from his iMac before he returned it to the Apple Store. The Apple store then wiped the iMac's HDD and sent it back to the factory for refurbishment/resale.

A quick google search of his name returns the article below on the tops results. (It is the same guy, linked Twitter and Instagram account match).

Is this guy an epic troll? Trying to pull another one on Apple? Or evading taxes?

An computer analyst allegedly tried to blackmail Apple for £130,000 in Bitcoin and £800 iTunes vouchers after posting a video of him hacking into iCloud accounts on YouTube, a court heard.
Kerem Albayrak, 21, allegedly demanded more than £133,000 worth of Bitcoin and £837 iTunes vouchers from the American tech giant.
Albayrak, who lives in Hornsey, north London, appeared at Westminster Magistrates’ court charged with blackmail and unauthorised acts intending to hinder access to a computer.
