You can call him a genius or you can call him lucky - but either way - he's filthy rich.
Davinci Jeremie is the man who told everyone to buy just $1 of Bitcoin 10 years ago and pretty much no one listened.
In May 2013, when Jeremie told the world to invest in crypto, the price of one Bitcoin per 1$ was $116.75.
At its peak in 2021, one Bitcoin was worth a whopping $61,000.
Even though crypto has taken a dip in recent months, its value is still at $30,000.
He describes himself in his Twitter bio as a 'Family Man, Programmer, YouTuber, and early Bitcoin adopter', as one of his posts is captioned: "Me living like a boss!"
To be fair, that seems to be quite an accurate description.
And his incredible life apparently all came from his savvy investment in Bitcoin.
Along with the video he posted back in 2013, Davincie wrote: "Look, for the price of [a] lotto ticket you can hold Bitcoin (BTC) for 10 years and become a millionaire. It's time you stop living in fear. If it goes to zero you lose $1, who cares!!!
"But if I'm right I want all of you to thank me, it will not make me happy if you come back to me in 10 years saying 'dude, I wish I listened to you back 2011 or 2013'."
He added an explanation in his video, posting: "Just so you know, Bitcoin is a digital crypto and global money system currency. I talk about technical analysis of Bitcoin, Ethereum, and crypto and how I make money trading BTC.
"Bitcoin allows people to send or receive money across the internet, without a third party."
He's also been reassuring followers on Twitter that the recent slump in Bitcoin is nothing to worry about.
Taking to social media, one follower joked: "Can you next do a story about those who bought Bitcoin at $64,000?"
Another added: "I used to watch this guy on YouTube and nearly bought 2,600 bitcoin for £10.
"Had my card details in but the server I was buying from kept crashing so I ditched the transaction."
"He didn’t tell me. I should sue," someone else quipped.
For most of us, the dream of never having to work again will always remain a dream.
