El Paso, (Entravision). The Daily Telegraph claims Idaho high school dropout Erik Finman made a bet with his parents that if he made $1 million by the time he turned 18 he wouldn’t have to go to college. His grandmother loaned him $1,000 when he was 12 before he invested the money in Bitcoin. A year later, the investment was worth $100,000. Finman then used his money to start an online teaching company. His 403 Bitcoins are now worth $1.09 million. Finman doesn’t recommend college. “I would recommend the internet, which is all free. You can learn a million times more off YouTube and Wikipedia.”
