This teenager’s angst is rich.
Erik Finman, a 19-year-old bitcoin millionaire, said if we’re all not millionaires within a decade, we have no one to blame but ourselves.
Finman first made headlines in 2014,
when his bitcoin success story went viral.
He took a $1,000 gift from his grandmother and invested it in the cryptocurrency — quickly turning it into $100,000. The then-16-year-old made a bet with his parents that if he was a millionaire by the time he turned 18, he wouldn’t have to attend college.
Finman is worth about $1.5 million — and doesn’t understand why the rest of us aren’t.
“If you are smart about cryptocurrency over the next 10 years, many people can build their fortunes even better than before,” Finman said in a recent interview with Business Insider.
“I say if you do not become a millionaire in the next 10 years, then it’s your own fault.”
