How much money can you make with Bitcoin? In the following we want to introduce you to five people and their story of Bitcoin and becoming famous.
The person who made the most money is Roger Ver aka Bitcoin Jesus. He is the richest bitcoin millionaire with $52 Million. To be fair he was already a wealthy man when he started to dig into the Bitcoin business. He is investing into Bitcoin Startups and is known for making many donations.
His friend Charlie Shrem made $45 Million with Bitcoin and Roger Ver invested into Charlie’s BitInstant. This company was very successful and was founded by him with only 11 years. So Charlie started investing into Bitcoin at a very early stage, when the price was still very low. Unfortunately Charlie ended up in prison because of money laundering in The Silk Road online black market. When he got released in 2016, he started Intellisys where he is selling investment portfolios in blockchain companies.
Another person, who made really good money with Bitcoin is Dave Carlson with $35 Million (he reported he was making $8 million per month in 2016). He is the founder of the mining company MegaBigPower. This company is very successful and he is leading it from his personal basement.
Jered Kenna made $30 Million. Like some of the other Bitcoin-Millionaires, he invested at an early stage (the value was 20 cents). He sold his coins when each bitcoin was worth $258. He is the founder of several companies: Bitcoindark (mining pool), a craft brewery in Colombia and 20 mission collaborative workspaces for entrepreneurs in San Francisco.
The last two people we want to introduce to you are the Winklevoss Twins. The brothers were one of the earliest investors and they also became the first ever bitcoin millionaires. They earned $11 Million by investing into BitInstant Bitcoin in 2013, and founded the company Winkdex (tracking the average price of Bitcoin). In 2015 they opened their first Bitcoin exchange in Gemini.
