A TEENAGER who was bullied throughout high school is now a self-proclaimed millionaire after investing in Cryptocurrency over four years.
Samuel Snell, from Australia, is now able to live a lavish lifestyle after co-founding 'Crypto Gods' a private community where he teaches others how to invest.
He has dubbed the business as the 'biggest private crypto group in Australia' with more than 3,000 members signed up.
On Samuel's TikTok account, he often posts videos sharing 'a day in the life' where he boasts his thriftless lifestyle of earning thousands of dollars a day and driving his two Mercedes Benz cars.
However, not everyone online is convinced of his claims and some have suggested it is a 'scam'.
Cryptocurrency, is a form of digital currency, such as Bitcoin and Ethereum.
It is used to buy goods and services but is often exchanged for a profit if the price has increased.
In Samuel's 'a day in the life' videos he begins his day by checking his earnings that have accumulated overnight, and on one occasion earns as much as $27k over one night.

In a single week alone, he claims to have made $20k and had even taken his friend away for a holiday with his earnings.
Samuel has two Mercedes Benz cars, the first he bought when he was just 17 years old.
He then went on to purchase a G Wagon for $350k at the age of 18 and is kitted in a diamond Rolex watch and designer clobber.
At home, he tracks his investments on his computer system which costs around $20k and uses three huge screens, purple LED lights, and a light-up keyboard.
Sam hopes to show there is no age limit to growing your wealth online.
In one video Samuel said: "I started in 2014 and my teachers were saying "stop wasting time with crypto" I now own the biggest crypto group making people money."
However, there were many users who were not convinced by Samuel's claims and wanted to see a step-by-step guide on how Samuel makes a profit.
One user exclaimed: "If this dude cared about making you rich for real, he would share his portfolio with you."
"*flexes money and then tells you to buy his course to learn* you’re done." Wrote another user.
A third user responded: "Not buying your course kid."
Buying any cryptocurrency is incredibly risky.
With any investment, there is a risk that the value of your money could go down as well as up. That means you should only invest money you can afford to lose.
Crypto can be riskier than other investments because they are volatile and speculative – their price often rising and falls very quickly, sometimes seemingly for not reason.
Many cryptocurrencies have a short track record, making them difficult to understand and predict.
This type of investment is also not protected by the regulator which means you have no protection if things go wrong.
The UK regulator has warned that Brits risk losing ALL of their money if they invest in cryptocurrencies.
If you are considering investing in any type of crypto, do your research first and only invest money you can afford to lose.
Be wary of scams, too, as the crypto market is often a target for fraud.
Look out for fake celebrity endorsements or social media profiles pushing certain coins.
