The U.today website organizes a list of Bitcoin millionaires in 2019.

Therefore, it can be seen that we can't judge Bitcoin's wealthy deification simply from its 10 years of high returns. The rich deification does not exist. What they have experienced in the past 10 years is beyond our imagination. The most important thing is to cultivate ourselves well.
