Livaneli Yildiran (Rotterdam, February 7th 1994) is a Rotterdam-based cryptocurrency trader and entrepreneur. In 2017 he starred in a mini documentary about new money, produced by VICE and sponsored by ING in which he explains how he managed to earn more than one million Euros starting with only 100 Euro's. Livaneli earned his money trading in cryptocurrencies. The video was viewed over 6 million times and has made a major contribution to the subsequent crypto hype in the Netherlands.
Livaneli's fascination for trade and finance started in his early childhood days. As a little boy he sold trinkets which he had scribbled for free on Queen's Day. Livaneli bought products from the lost and found auctions on the airport where he worked and sold these for profit. One day he bought an ipod for 60 Euros and sold it for 100 Euro's. With this money he made his first investments in cryptocurrencies at the age of 19. The money he earned with this (reportedly more than 1 million Euro's) was partly invested in an investment fund for cryptocurrencies set up with the help of relatives and friends.
In addition to cryptocurrencies, Livaneli also invested in the stock market. Usually in young emerging tech companies that prefer to contribute to a liberal/sharing economy. Aurora cannabis is one of the companies he invested in and spoke about in public, which was another successful and nationwide discussed success. Mostly due to the çontroversial nature but also because people were affraid this was a sign from the experienced cryptocurrency trader that cryptocurrencies were on a dead end. Shortly after this article was published the cryptocurrency market experienced a major downfall that lead to 2018's bear market.
Livaneli is known for his long-term goals and strong discipline. In addition to setting up his fund he is still a student at Rotterdam University of Applied Sciences where he studies Trade Management Asia and learns Chinese so that he can continue his business in Asia.
