On July 2, it is reported that the co-founder of the BitMEX exchange and an Oxford graduate Ben Delo has become Britain’s youngest billionaire.
He, who used to work as a software engineer for IBM before relocating to Hong Kong to work for JP Morgan, has discovered wealth in the crypto industry. The Hong Kong-based young man believed in crypto which, in turn, made him be someone worth $3.6 billion.
Delo, who founded BitMEX in 2014 spent almost 18 hours a day to build his platform. As of today, BitMEX is one of the largest crypto exchanges in the world with a daily trade volume of around $2 billion.
With the same lifestyle as American billionaire investor Warren Buffett and businessman Bill Gates, he said he would rather donate his money to several charities than waste it on luxurious eccentricities.
In 2005, Delo graduated with a first-class degree, majoring in mathematics and computer science in Worcester College, Oxford.
A representative of BitInfoCharts claimed in January that the company figured there were no more than 35 Bitcoin billionaires worldwide, and possibly as many as 200.
If the market continues to persevere in the future, the number of billionaires may rise as well.
