Erik Finman is a 19-year-old from Idaho, US, who first invested in cryptocurrency in 2011 (back when Bitcoin fetched about AED45) when his grandmother gifted him AED3700.

Thanks to the crazy increase in the digital currency's value (about AED52,000) and a lot of smart investment decisions, Erik is now a millionaire

He is also a frequent twitter-user

His tweets are mainly advice he has collected down the way

And, according to The National, Eric now has plans to invest into creating a new university in Dubai which, he says, will be the "best of the planet" and “two times better than Stanford”


Because he knows Dubai likes the best.
