Teenager who invested in bitcoin is now a millionaire

When he was only 12 years old, Erik Finman made a bet with his parents: if by the age of 18 he was a millionaire, they would not force him to go to college. Years later, thanks to his smart investments, he won the bet and won’t attend college. How did he do it? Finman took a thousand dollars that his grandmother had given him for his birthday and invested in Bitcoin.

Back then, the virtual currency had a value of $12 per unit compared to $2,700 that costs today. Over time, Finman acquired a total of 403 bitcoins, leaving him with $1.09 million.
