Car and cryptocurrency enthusiast George Tung, popularly known online as CryptosRUs, is an information technology professional, entrepreneur, and content creator. He is best known for his YouTube channels, websites, and courses that showcase his expertise in trading, investing, and research. As of 2023, CryptosRUs has an estimated net worth of $2 million.
Tung is from the Chicago Metropolitan Area. He studied Telecommunications and Networking Technology at Purdue University in West Lafayette, Indiana. In 2004, he earned his bachelor’s degree.
His first job was as a system administrator at Fertility Centers of Illinois. He worked there from 2007 to 2011. Then, he went to Midwest Vein Center and served as an IT manager.
However, he only worked for a month in his second job. Tung joined Upp Technology as the IT infrastructure manager from 2014 to 2015. His last IT job was at ATI Physical Therapy from 2015 to 2017.
After more than a decade of working as an information technology expert, George decided to venture out on his own by joining YouTube in 2017. He focused on something new, a hobby he’s had for a long time, crypto investing.
This is how CryptosRUs was created. Its goal was to cover crypto stories, developments, and statistics. Since its inception, the channel has experienced steady growth. Now, it is one of the leading crypto outlets on YouTube.
One year after creating his crypto-themed channel, Tung established a new account related to his other hobby, cars. It was named Drivers Only. He uploads consistently on his main channels. Now, Drivers Only has 104,000 subscribers, while CryptosRUs has 619,000.
Both his channels have associated websites. DriversOnlyRankings.com is made for car reviews. On the other hand, CryptosRUs.com publishes articles about blockchain technologies and altcoins.
The website has a newsletter for those that want to be constantly updated in crypto. It also has a section for the ‘I Am George’ NFTs listed at the OpenSea marketplace.
Bitcoin 101 is a course George sells online. The goal of his course is to teach students about the fundamentals of cryptocurrency, blockchains, and the factors that influence its price.
Net Worth and Earnings
The CryptosRUs channel is estimated to make $19,900 every month from YouTube ads. That’s about $238,300 annually. Drivers Only also earn around $12,000 every year. As a crypto investor, he is big on Bitcoin. However, he does put money on altcoins, such as ETH, ADA, and LUNA.
He once revealed that he had invested money in BitConnect despite his suspicions that it was a Ponzi scheme. Still, he earned some profits from it. Today, he has 379 subscribers on Patreon that pay from $15 to $500 every month. His $10 course is the last factor of his $2 million net worth.
George Tung is a very private man. He keeps most of his personal details to himself. His marital status is not confirmed, but it is said that he is single. The online figure seems to be focused on his ventures and finding ways to expand them.
