Eric Finman – the main character of the sensational story of how a teenager has become a bitcoin-millionaire – now shares secrets with those who are interested in investing.
In high school the average score of his certificate was 2.1, he said, almost all teachers believed that he did not have a bright future.
It was so bad that one teacher even advised Eric to quit his studies and work for McDonald’s, as this is all he can eventually come up with.
So he dropped it.
Interestingly, he argued with his parents, Stanford alumni, that if he becomes a millionaire by age 18, he will not have to go to college.
Grandmother started the success
In 2013, Finman cashed his first investment, when bitcoin cost about $ 1200, the teenager received $ 100,000.
Thanks to these tools, he was able to found his first start-up, Botangle, an online learning platform that provides students with digital communication with teachers.
Since then, he works with NASA and manages his bitcoin investments.
Due to the success for which he seized, the bitcoin-millionaire believes that young people need to find what they really like and start “making money”.
A young businessman writes on his Twitter account:
“This is really important for young people. Creating an additional revenue stream will allow you to start investing earlier. “
Currently, Finman owns 401 bitcoins, which today at a rate of 11 211 dollars is 4.5 million dollars.
Not bad for a teenager who invested 1000 dollars from his grandmother 7 years ago and nobody believed in it?
Although many argue that the crypto currency is nothing more than a Ponzi scheme and that they are in a bubble waiting for an explosion – Finman does not share this opinion.
According to him, ” bitcoin is as real as the Fiat . “
The only difference is that crypto-currencies can not be printed indefinitely.
As a result of his enthusiasm, he advises to involve more young people in investing.
In social networks, he added:
“What I really like about bitkoyne is that instead of the rich old people on Wall Street, young people become rich here.”
Finman believes that this is only the beginning and says:
“At heart, everyone knows that crypto-currencies are the future. This is known even by bankers and Wall Street. The only discussion is how long it will last. “
