It’s a well-known fact that millennials are major investors when it comes to Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies, but Izabella Bowles has broken completely new ground becoming a Bitcoin hodler at the young age of two weeks.
Thanks to a cleverly worded ad in the UK’s flagship daily The Times by her father Peter, CEO at Dynamo PR, an award-winning tech agency for disruptive PR strategies across consumer technology, she is now £3000 better off. The ad read:
On the 6th January 2019 to Wioletta (nee Witek) and Peter, daughter, Izabella Anna Bowles, sister to Philip. Weighed 2.2 kg. Bitcoin College Fund: 1ZAB5XeMdvax2S8eZT7GQ6Nj4xjbsw1Y”
By the time Izabella is ready to spend the funds, it could be worth a fortune, in fact, pundits have so far failed to predict that far into the future, but bitcoin reaching hundreds of thousands in the next decade was frequently on the tips of many analysts’ tongues at the height of the currency’s bull run at the end of 2017.
The parents initiated the fund in order to put their daughter through college, and with 300 people making donations so far ranging from £0.30 to nearly £300 it appears she may be on her way, although where Bitcoin goes over the next 18 years is anyone’s guess.
At its height, Izabella’s fund would be worth £15,000 but what college fees will be in 2037 is anyone’s guess. The National Union of Students in the UK claim that fees are currently standing at £10,000 ($12,870) a year.
Unfortunately, Izabella has already accrued a bill; the roughly £200 advertising costs for the placement of the ad in Saturday’s newspaper, which her father may well request back when she turns of age.
