High School Dropout
Like most of the kids of his age, German teenager Erik was fed up with schooling. He didn't want to continue, and so he made a bet with his parents.
If he managed to become a millionaire before 18, he wouldn't have had to attend college; his parents agreed. Erik was only 11 years old when he invested 1000 Euros, a gift from his grandmother, in BTC.
The boy got advice on what to do with the money from his brother. In 2011, one BTC cost around $12. In 2013, he started selling his first coins, after which the rate rose to $1,200.

By 2013, Fineman had already made $100,000 out of the 1,000 Euros. With this money, he founded an educational startup in 2014. Things went well, and Fineman soon moved to Silicon Valley, travelled the world giving lectures. He was also named TIME's most influential teen in 2014.

In January 2015, Erik got an offer to sell his company for $100,000. He was also offered 300 BTC as an alternative to fiat money. After a little thought, he chose the bitcoins. He continued to create different businesses, and by 18 he became a millionaire, winning the bet and refraining from university studies.
Although the rest of his family has degrees — his brother Scott went to Johns Hopkins at 16 and now has an enterprise software company, while his other brother Ross went to Carnegie Melon at 16 for robotics and is now pursuing his Ph.D. at MIT — he's happy learning about the real world from experience.
By summer 2017, Fineman owned 403 BTC. As of July 2018, the value of this investment totals around $2.5 million.
