19-Year-Old Bitcoin Miner Making $54K A Year

Nick Sears, a 19-year-old entrepreneur from Dallesport, Washington, has said no to college and yes to bitcoin when he was 17 years old and helped build a bitcoin mining farm in that town. Now, he earns $54,000 per year.

“I don’t think about going to college at all, just pursuing further knowledge in the repairs of the miners,” Sears told CNBC.

The 19-year-old lives in a room inside the data center he helped build when he was 17 years old. The hydro-powered facility houses 4,500 ASICs, which generate 80 decibels of noise each. But Sears said he has managed to live with the whirling.
