Ben Delo, 34 year old Oxford alumnus and BitMEX co-founder has reportedly become Britain’s youngest self-made Bitcoin billionaire.
Aged 34, Delo, who founded BitMEX in 2014, told Daily Mail that he used to spend 18 hours a day to build his platform. His work has apparently paid off, as BitMEX is currently one of the largest crypto exchanges in the world with a daily trade volume of around $2 billion, according to data from Coinmarketcap.
“I have had my nose down in a start-up for the past four years. I was doing 18-hour days at one point.”
Delo graduated Worcester College, Oxford in 2005 with a first-class degree, majoring in mathematics and computer science. Having experience as Software Engineer at IBM, and assistant Vice President at JP Morgan, the youngest UK’s Bitcoin (BTC) billionaire is now based in Hong Kong, according to Daily Mail.
