Look at what the man who urged people to buy $1 of Bitcoin in 2013 is doing now

Of all the regrets you have in life, not investing in Bitcoin might be up there.

And the man who told everyone to invest back in 2013 is proof that it was a shrewd move.

Davinci Jeremie’s decision certainly paid off for him – and his lavish lifestyle is all the proof you need.

In May 2013, Jeremie told the world to invest in crypto.

At the time, the price of one Bitcoin was $116.75.

But, like with most things, a lot has changed over the past decade.

And while it simply sat there – with many forgetting about, losing track of it or being unable to access it – it’s value’s been accumulating.

And some people are kicking themselves for letting it go for less.

Like this guy who purchased two Papa Johns pizza’s using 10,000 Bitcoin in 2010.

To put that into context – that’s currently worth over $250M+.

While the crypto currency’s value has taken a dip recently to be valued at $30,000 – it’s still a sizeable ROI.

At its 2021 high, one Bitcoin was worth $61,000.

Jeremie’s Twitter bio proudly declares him to be a “Family Man, Programmer, YouTuber, and early Bitcoin adopter”.

Chilean native, Jeremie, is certainly living the high life – quite literally with his private jet.

He’s also been able to invest his returns into an enviable car collection and private yachts.

His social media accounts frequently see him in playgrounds for the one-percenters including Monte Carlo and Dubai.

His financial advice video in 2013 urging everyone to invest has a caption that says it all.

“Look, for the price of lotto ticket you can hold Bitcoin (BTC) for 10 years and become a millionaire,” he said.

“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 explains that Bitcoin is a “digital crypto and global money system currency”.

It allows people to send or receive money minus a third party – and trading it is how he continues to make money.

He’s been active on X recently, reassuring investors that the value of Bitcoin will rise again.

“The most common saying of the 21st century will be: ‘I should have bought some Bitcoin when it was cheaper,’” he said in October.

Some of his followers spoke of their regret of not investing.

“I used to watch this guy on YouTube and nearly bought 2,600 bitcoin for £10,” one commented.

“Had my card details in but the server I was buying from kept crashing so I ditched the transaction.”

Hindsight is 20/20.
