ERIK Finman became the youngest Bitcoin millionaire at 18 after investing in the cryptocurrency aged 12 - but his teacher told him he'd never amount to anything.

The Bitcoin mogul was told to "drop out" of high school and work at McDonald's because he'd "never amount to anything more in life".

You can still do this via Exodus wallet without KYC, but of course you won't get a very good rate.

"Getting rich" does not necessarily mean amounting to anything. Good for him for making a good decision though.

There is a bit more of a gambling and even business angle to the story. It was not just pure bitcoin investing and sitting on it, and I am not even sure what the details might be, because it appears that he had even invested decent amounts of his earlier investment to increase the quantity of his bitcoin holdings from 100 to 341... ..

From the title i had been thinking that the story was going to be about a barely a millionaire story... with 25 coins or something like that, but instead, it appears that Finman has been in bitcoin for 10 years, got involved in other projects and seems to even be bored of "crypto/bitcoin", and also somehow accumulated way more BTC after some of his early purchases got him to 100 BTC, in the story they are describing him as someone with 341BTC... truly above and beyond entry-level fuck you status - since even now entry level fuck you status is approaching sub 100BTC.

It would be difficult to argue that 341 BTC is not well into fuck you status if he owns those BTC free and clear and without incumbrances, which is also not very clear from the article... but 341 BTC would even be well into fuck you status for a 22 year old (Finman's apparent current age).  

By the way, I would argue that younger folks do have to be careful about attempting to transition into fuck you status too early... because they are likely to have to make sure that their total portfolio value is going to sustain them.. and probably many times, younger people do not mind staying in some kind of a working/active in the world status, but surely if any of us is actually in fuck you status, then the terms of any employment that we might get into would be ones that are totally agreeable to our own preferences and maybe if we are decently well into fuck you status, we would largely be able to create our own terms of employment, as well... frequently a 22-year old will still have a decent amount that s/he needs to learn, and sure there might not be anything wrong with ongoing learning by entering into projects, which seems to have been Finman's approach too.. not really clear from the article.

"Getting rich" does not necessarily mean amounting to anything. Good for him for making a good decision though.

There may be some truth in what you are saying richie - nonetheless, if we look at some of Finman's details, there may well have been some skills involved in how he got from 100 coins to 341 coins.  Admittedly, from the article, we do not know very many of Finman's details, and surely the first 100 BTC do seem to have had been purchased 10 years ago or so at a pretty decent rate of around £700 for the whole lot... so that 100 BTC surely does begin a really good base.... especially by the time we get to the BTC price run starting in late 2015.. having 100 BTC still had the guy at $25k that was largely magnified to nearly $2million by the end of the run... so holding onto the coins through all of that might have been a feat in itself.. especially the subsequent fall in BTC prices, too.  

And, I am not sure what Finman did to more than triple his holdings to 341 BTC.. but supposedly he was involved in "business" for much of the time even before the BTC price run that started in 2015.. so hard to label him as a pure HODLer...so yeah, maybe there are no social redeeming values in however Finman got from point A to point B to point C  - over a 10-year period.... so technically, just on the face of it, I cannot really refuse to agree with you that the tagline of merely getting rich has meant that Finman did end up amounting to something... and probably we do not really know enough.. regarding the skills involved and even his supposed current goals of involving himself and monies in "education," so articles do not always do justice to the particulars.

By the way, there are likely a lot of guys here who have been in bitcoin for nearly as long as Finman, but have not been able to hang onto anywhere close to 100 BTC.... I know that just having the coins does not necessarily cause the person to "amount to anything" - even though there are likely some very decent skills in merely hanging onto a certain quantity of coins through the years.. and not just saying.. I stared with 500 BTC and I have 100 BTC now.. even though that might not necessarily be a bad thing either because in 2015 500 BTC were worth around $125k, but now, 100 BTC are worth around $4.3 million, so it is not even close to being necessary to actually increase your BTC stash.. and the are a variety of ways to play your cards right.... whether just focusing on the getting rich part but some of the skills that might have also been employed.. and maybe the learnings along the way, too?...    Did we learn along the way?  Did we share any of our learnings?  If so how did we share?  If not, then what might have been some of the other ways that we attempted to put our capital to work?  - not that we necessarily have to engage in socially acceptable usages of our capital.  There could be some values in consumption, too.  Perhaps?

Edit:  Ps... I will admit that those two pictures from the article are not exactly flattering or allowing for any benefit of the doubt to Finman...  the pictures are a kind of click bait provocation in themselves, no?

I am starting to think we might see the "These early Bitcoin assholes were lucky and do not deserve the gains they made" narrative heating up pretty soon.  In some ways stories like the above kind of don't help.  People are going to want to believe that our good fortune was entirely up to luck and involved no risk, or work on our part.

Depending on various factors... a couple solutions that the word on the street is good about are changenow and fixedfloat...  Fixedfloat generally offering better rates:

https://changenow.io/currencies/monero?from=eth&to=btc

You *could* need a VPN or TOR connection for some reason I can't quite remember. Wink

Judging by the photo, I'm convinced this little fucker didn't achieve anything... he just took advantage of the achievement of one anonymous guy. In addition, I am not sure that at his age he himself disposed of his coins, because, as experience tells me, teenagers are too impulsive and the likelihood that without a patron he would not have dumped his coins in 2015 is extremely small.

Btw, It's all good, of course, but I'm looking forward to high-profile arrests.  Cheesy
