A teenager who was bullied in high school is now a self-proclaimed millionaire after investing in cryptocurrency over four years, allowing him to live a lavish lifestyle at just 18.
Samuel Snell, from the Gold Coast, Australia, co-founded the private community ‘Crypto Gods’ where he teaches others how to invest in cryptocurrency and shares different investing strategies based on trends.
He dubs the business as ‘biggest private crypto group in Australia’ with more than 3,000 members.
On TikTok he’s shared a series of ‘a day in the life’ videos where he boasts his extravagant lifestyle of earning thousands of dollars a day, driving his two Mercedes Benz cars and purchasing designer buys.
Cryptocurrency, such as Bitcoin and Ethereum, is a form of digital currency used to buy goods and services but is often exchanged for a profit if the price has increased.
Samuel starts his day by ‘checking his earnings’ overnight which is dependent on how well the market performed, and on one occasion he made $27,000.
In a single week alone, he claimed to have made $20,000 and took his friends on free holiday.
One of the two Mercedes Benz vehicles is worth $350,000 and he also purchased a diamond Rolex watch.
When he’s at home he tracks the daily coin trends on his $20,000 computer consisting of three huge screens, purple LED lights and light-up keyboard.
Samuel is on a mission to show there is no age limit when it comes to growing wealth online – and presently with the rapid growth in cryptocurrency, it’s likely thousands will be able to follow in his footsteps.
‘I started in 2014 and my teachers were saying “stop wasting time with crypto” I now own the biggest crypto group making people money,’ he claimed in a video.
Despite the claims, many online weren’t convinced and wanted a step-by-step guide on how Samuel makes his profit.
‘I’m not going to buy your course,’ one person wrote, and access into the program itself ranges from $50 to $500.
‘If this dude cared about making you rich for real, he would share his portfolio with you,’ another added.
‘Probably his parents’ cars,’ a third said, while others went as far as to call it a ‘scam’.
