High school kids turn techpreneurs

When John was 15, he started a server rental business for gamers and then another that allowed people who took surveys to, say, read a book for free online. "In these stints, I developed an interest in payment processing. I began to research the area, and delved into bitcoins. I thought that with bitcoins, one could bring down remittance charges to a fraction of what money transfer companies charge. It would even allow, say a farmer in Mizoram with no registered business and no bank account to do business with someone in the US," John says. Alongside his Symbiosis course, John is now busy building a bitcoin transaction platform that he hopes the world will do business on one day.
