Countless success stories have been told over the years, but none of those tales have been as heart-wrenching and eye-opening as the story of one, Khalid Ahmed, more famously known as ISELLCOIN online. His remarkable journey of triumph over tragedy and ultimately gaining financial freedom began at the age of nine when he received a shocking diagnosis.
When all odds seemed to be stacked against him, Khalid Ahmed rose from the ashes and claimed his rightful success through Bitcoin, but let’s not get ahead of ourselves. The story began when he was a young boy. At the age of nine, Ahmed was diagnosed with Crohn’s Disease, a type of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) that causes inflammation of the digestive tract. The disease can lead to abdominal pain, severe diarrhea, fatigue, weight loss and malnutrition.
After his diagnosis, Khalid Ahmed would go into septic shock and was forced to be confined in a hospital bed. At the time, he felt that what he was going through was the worst thing that could ever happen, but he later found it to be more of a blessing in disguise. The young boy would spend most of his time in hospital rooms. Unfortunately, the mounting hospital bills would prove to become too difficult for his parents.
As a result, Khalid Ahmed and his family would lose their home in Victorville, California. When Ahmed learned about losing the house, he made it his mission to ensure his family would never find themselves in the same situation ever again.
Khalid Ahmed grew up to be a big introvert and a recluse since he spent most of his time in the hospital. He would eventually find a special group of people who shared the same interests as him, and they would bond over stuff like computer parts, graphics cards, and video games. After school, Ahmed would flip old computer parts from when he tried to get smoother frame rates in the games he played, generating small amounts of money for himself.
In 2015, Khalid Ahmed’s entire life would change when a client offered a remarkable price for four AMD Radeon graphics cards. “Initially, I thought the cards were for a video game, but the client revealed that it was used to mine Bitcoin,” shared Ahmed. Thus, he began doing extensive research on the topic and quickly fell in love with the DeFi world.
He used the profits he earned from the transaction to purchase as much Bitcoin as possible, utilizing at least 50% of his profits as an initial investment. Ahmed also started a second job at a movie theater to help fuel his investment opportunities in BItcoin. Despite having only invested small amounts of money into Bitcoin, the unprecedented rise of the cryptocurrency earned him six figures.
Once he struck gold with his investment, Khalid Ahmed immediately gave the money to his parents, who were able to purchase a house in West Covina due to his contribution. This was his way of giving back to his family for helping pay for his medical bills after spending several years in the hospital. It seemed as if his mission was finally over, but he had more plans to continue his financial success.
Ahmed continued to purchase Bitcoin throughout his college days, taking his business of flipping computer parts online. Eventually, he expanded into the world of e-commerce, working with partner suppliers in China. Once he gained e-commerce success, he began leasing multiple warehouses in the United States to the point that he would end his collaboration to manufacture and mainly focus on selling in the United States.
Eventually, Ahmed sold his pocket knife company and outdoor niche store for seven figures. He used the money to retire his parents and bought them a second home in Ontario Ranch, California. Currently, the successful serial entrepreneur is running a weighted blanket business and computer parts company while working as an angel investor. He continues to invest in cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin and Ethereum and has recently found interest in NFTs. His most recent angel investment is the United States’ most exclusive gym, Dogpound.
