When it comes to investing in cryptocurrency, there’s two things that make it unique from any other type of investment: an investor really can get rich overnight, the people who have invested are different than traditional investors. What makes investors of cryptocurrency different than investors of, say, stocks, bonds, and real estate; is that these investors come from all walks of life. For example, there are wealthy cryptocurrency investors that are part of online anti-establishment groups, and others that bought a few ten years ago, and just got lucky.
Cameron & Tyler Winklevoss
The Winklevoss twins’ cryptocurrency investment is estimated to be worth about one billion dollars. If the Winklevoss twins sound familiar, it’s because they created a website called ConnectU. Many believe this website played a role in Mark Zuckerburg’s creation of Facebook. When it comes to cryptocurrency, though, the Winklevoss twins have held their investment for the past six years. They also run a cryptocurrency exchange that has processed three-hundred million dollars in cryptocurrency transactions.
Anthony De Iorio
Anthony De Iorio is the creator of Ethereum, one of the most popular cryptocurrencies.
His cryptocurrency investment is also thought to be worth nearly one billion dollars. Anthony claims his strategy is to be an early investor, and as soon as the cryptocurrency can be sold for a major gain, to sell it and invest in a new one.
Vitalik Buterin is only twenty-four years old, but his cryptocurrency investment is worth as much as five hundred million dollars.Because of his success in Bitcoin, he has been invited by Microsoft, BP, and JPMorgan to collaborate.
Brendan Blumer is originally from Iowa, but operates his cryptocurrency investments from China. His claim to fame is closing the world’s biggest token sale by raising one billion dollars for a platform that would compete with Ethereum. Blumer got involved in cryptocurrency because as a teenager he would sell characters that he built up in online games. So, he knew there was money to be made in the online investment world.
These four investors show cryptocurrency attracts a wide variety of investors. From a twenty-four year old to long-term entrepreneurs, it’s possible for anyone to make money in cryptocurrency if they do the work.
