A 23-year-old bitcoiner plans to place an orange flag with the bitcoin logo on the top of Mount Everest. The purpose of this action is to generate attention for global financial literacy.

It concerns Dadvan Yousuf, who on February 28 announced his plans to climb the highest mountain in the world and place the bitcoin flag on the top.

Assets of $300 million

According to the stories, Yousuf bought $340 worth of bitcoin in 2011 and later invested in ethereum and non-fungible tokens (NFTs).

Yousuf was born in Iraq and now has his company in Dubai. If the rumors are true, Yousuf would have a net worth of $300 million as of January 2022.

Now the young multi-millionaire is going to climb Mount Everest and it is his plan to pay tribute to bitcoin at the top of the mountain.

The journey to the top of Mount Everest is anything but safe. In 2023, 18 people died trying to reach the top of the world’s highest mountain.

Many of them perished in the so-called “death zone”, which is located at an altitude of more than 8,000 meters.

Waste problem on the mountain

Waste has also become a huge problem on the even bigger mountain. Many people who climb the mountain leave behind oxygen tanks, food, camping gear and feces on their way to the top.

Yousuf plans to reach the top and then leave absolutely nothing behind on the mountain.

“My goal is to leave no trace. No flags either. Preserving Mount Everest’s pristine nature is crucial to me. I ensure minimal impact and leave only footprints.

Bitcoin has fundamentally changed my life since it came along. As bitcoin approaches its all-time high, I plan to raise the bitcoin flag on top of the world,” said an optimistic Yousuf.

Yesterday the bitcoin price suddenly rose to $64,000, but we are now a lot lower at $61,400.
