Crypto Enthusiast Khalid Ahmed Shares How to Overcome a Difficult Journey

Khalid Ahmed is a crypto enthusiast who is already achieving milestones at the age of twenty-four. After going through the most difficult challenges in his life, he experienced success in the industry. Today, he’s driven to inspire people through his journey, showing them that anyone can bounce back from impossible odds.

Khalid’s medical bills due to his Crohn’s Disease at the age of nine were one of his driving forces to become successful early. The young crypto enthusiast is also known as ISELLCOIN online and was compelled to reach financial freedom early. If not, he and his family would not be able to live the comfortable life they are living now. After his diagnosis, he experienced a septic shock. But Ahmed saw this experience as a blessing instead of a curse. Fortunately, when he was in his sophomore year in high school, he experienced complete remission from his Crohn’s disease. 

Khalid’s success started when he met a guy who was a little bit older than him and was willing to pay a high price for the AMD Radeon Graphics cards he possessed. So naturally, the young man became curious and asked him why he needed to have four of the same cards and what game he was playing to possibly need that much power. He told Khalid that he would use it to grow his Bitcoin. Ever since that day, his life has changed forever. 

“This affected me differently because the house was taken from my parents from the bank after they couldn’t pay the mortgage while paying my medical bills,” recounts the young Crypto enthusiast. “I ended up getting a second job at a movie theater to put extra money into Bitcoin,” With the small amount of money he placed into Bitcoin and experiencing the exponential growth he received, his thousands amounted to six figures. He sold a significant portion of his bitcoins and gave all the money to care for his parents. Finally, Khalid Ahmed was able to buy a house in West Covina for his beloved parents. He was then able to pool in some money and started expanding his business into selling video game rigs with graphics cards included. 

Thankfully the business did well, and so he started building connections with the Chinese suppliers. That gave a chance for rising e-commerce-based businesses such as Marvel and DC-inspired pocket knife online stores, hiking and outdoor niche-based online stores, and weighted blanket stores to scale their businesses even more. 

All of his online stores became steady and consistent. He began to lease multiple warehouses in the United States to keep up with increasing demand. Still, then he eventually began to produce and sell exclusively in the United States. That boosted his reputation and allowed him to be identified as a fellow businessman. Ahmed then successfully sold his two companies for seven figures. 

Today, he is still hands-on with his two expanding companies, the weighted blanket company and his computer part company full time, and is an angel investor. He invests in Bitcoin and Ethereum and has started investing in NFTs. His most recent angel investment is a company called DOGPOUND, the most exclusive gym in the United States. Other famous investors in the startup include Tom Holland. Ahmed hopes that his story will inspire others to keep fighting even when things get tough.
