A recent tweet by Crypto Rand caught the attention of the cryptocurrency sphere. The tweet lists members of the Billionaires Bitcoin Club. While not a real club, it does show a number of prominent individuals, who just happen to be billionaires, that have made the decision to invest in Bitcoin.
One of the common targets that every investor has in mind is to join the club of billionaires. The journey to reach the first billion is always difficult. Growing your capital thereafter is comparatively easier since you have a massive power of capital and a great influence in all the money markets. Most billionaires took much less time to reach $10 billion from $1 billion than they took to reach from $100 million to $1 billion.
