The face of the crypto YouTube channel Coin Bureau is a gentleman known online as Guy. His channel is one of the most popular sources for the latest crypto news. Guy is a former actor who now considers himself a jack of all cryptocurrency trades. As of 2023, Coin Bureau has a net worth of $2 million.
Much of Guy’s personal details are a mystery. However, it is rumored that his real name is Mike Jenkins from Hackney, East London. He has also shared on his Twitter account that his birthday is on October 15, but the year is unknown.
As a child, his fascination with economics began when his father, an accountant, described how the stock market works. He understood that money can grow if put to work rather than lying in a savings account somewhere. After graduating from university with a degree in English, Guy worked in a variety of occupations. He worked as a writer, editor, and instructor and had a few acting gigs.
Diving Into Crypto
Although he worked in a different industry, Guy always followed the financial news. In 2011, his eyes were opened when he watched an interview by Alistair Darling, who exposed how British banks were at their lowest point.
He realized at that time that the current financial system was not only dysfunctional but also unfit for purpose. As a result, once he came across Bitcoin, he was immediately intrigued. Guy first learned about crypto in 2013, when his neighborhood pub in East London began taking Bitcoin as payment.
After two of his buddies stated they were founding Coin Bureau, Guy asked to join the group. They started out as an educational website that published content about blockchain platforms, smart contracts, and crypto in general.
Guy was one of the website’s original writers, and he contributed to many of the site’s early educational articles. The website wasn’t a massive hit but when they started a YouTube channel in early 2019, things changed for the better.
Now, their YouTube channel is one of the most respected in the crypto space. They attracted over 2.2 million subscribers by regularly posting quality content, Most of the growth happened during the bull markets with people looking for what tokens to buy.
Net Worth and Salary
Reports estimate that Guy’s YouTube channel makes an estimated $15,000 per month from YouTube ad revenue. The channel also earns money through affiliate marketing and brand deals with crypto companies.
They receive extra income with Binance’s affiliate program as well as selling their own merch. Their website is active and posts articles every week. This is why Coin Bureau Guy has an estimated net worth of $2 million.
Guy is very secretive about his personal affairs. However, it’s a different story when it comes to his personal crypto portfolio. Over 60% of his portfolio is split between Ethereum and Bitcoin. He also invested money into ADA, SOL, DOT, RUNE, PAXG, LINK, INJ, ATOM, REN, and LIT.
