A Teenage Bitcoin Millionaire Wants To Make The World’s Best University In Dubai
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
Remember to learn how to have fun. Don't grow old and bitter, or rich and unhappy; make sure you still know how to have a good time.— Erik Finman (@erikfinman) December 28, 2017
His tweets are mainly advice he has collected down the way
Pretend to be who you want to be until you become that person.— Erik Finman (@erikfinman) December 30, 2017
Fake it 'til you make it.
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.
