Teenage Bitcoin Millionaire: “it’s Your own fault if you’re not a Millionaire in 10 years”

Nineteen-year-old Erik Finman, who turned $1,245 given to him by his grandmother into a Bitcoin fortune of $1.5 million, has tough advice for anyone who wants to get like him.

“If you do not become a millionaire in the next 10 years, then it’s your own fault,” the German teenager told Business Insider, citing the insane proliferation and rise of cryptocurrencies.

 

“The advance of cryptocurrencies is unstoppable,” Finman said. “A single crash does not change that. People will continue to invest in it and become increasingly emotionally connected with digital currencies.”

This runs counter to all the paranoia surrounding Bitcoin. One economist recently said the Bitcoin burst would be the “biggest bubble in history.”

Kids don’t smoke. Be responsible.

“New business models and innovations are still emerging in this area, and therefore, there are many investment opportunities,” he added. “It’s a new kind of gold fever, or a new kind of Silicon Valley — there are really plenty of opportunities.”

Finman, who posts Instagrams of him lighting up cigarettes of 100 dollar bills and from luxury Audis, does not pay much mind to the recent downturn in Bitcoin value.

 

“The advance of cryptocurrencies is unstoppable,” Finman said. “A single crash does not change that. People will continue to invest in it and become increasingly emotionally connected with digital currencies.”

This runs counter to all the paranoia surrounding Bitcoin. One economist recently said the Bitcoin burst would be the “biggest bubble in history.”

Finman is also unbothered by anyone offended by his brash comments.

“Haters are mad at me for that you can become a millionaire in 10 years if you want it bad enough!” he ranted in a recent Instagram post
