The desire to own a cryptocurrency this Christmas came true for a 12-year-old with an IQ higher than Albert Einstein.

Barnaby Swinburne, based in Bristol, England, requested two Christmas presents, a Mensa IQ test and a bundle of cryptocurrencies. According to BristolLive, Swinburne scored the highest possible score of 162 on the test, surpassing Einstein’s IQ of 160. As a result, the student became a member of the High IQ community, which hosts 2% of Mensa’s top members.

Speaking of cryptocurrency, Swinburn’s mother, Ghislaine, said:

“He looked at the markets. For Christmas, he would get an envelope with money, which would turn into cryptocurrency. ”
However, the Swinburne family has not yet revealed the value of the cash and cryptocurrencies purchased this Christmas.

In line with his interest in cryptocurrency, Swinburne wants to grow up and become a programmer. “He’s already taking a university course and wants to go to Oxford,” Ghislaine added.

A Brazilian father gave his newborn daughter 1 Bitcoin (BTC) back in 2017 when the price was around $ 915.80. Fast forward four years: the young lady saw a return of over 6500% when BTC rose above $ 60,000 on October 17.

Father Joao Cangada, who is also the founder of the Brazilian crypto exchange Foxbit, realized that 2017 was his last chance to buy bitcoin for less than $ 1,000:

“As soon as my daughter was born, I bought her 1 bitcoin in 2017, not only as a gift, but also as a way to invest in this new economy. At that time, BTC was worth 5000 R $.
