    But he didn't win the lottery, he earned the money... it is fairly safe to say that he will be able to earn more money in the future.

    He is 12... if a "normal" 12 year old spent ~8.5% of his money he would be watching a movie at the theater with some popcorn. That is a GREAT investment too... Your jealousy is showing...

    When he was 10, he said his grandparents bought it for him...and they bought his dad a Ford Focus. So now he earned it when he was 9 with a Google app?

    Remarkable how the inconsistencies come so quickly to light.

    Get me this kid's full name and the name of the supposed app he sold Google 4 years ago. Then we'll talk. Until then...

    Yes, you ousted me. I am incredibly jealous at this kid for dropping nearly 10% of his wealth on shit he can't even use or make money on and am in no way just a dude who's financially conservative. Glad we cleared that up.

    Ahahaha
    I bet you're one of those idiots who posts pics of their new $300 Ifag devices then says anyone who doesn't like it is a hater aren't you? Grow the **** up. Like your tech bullshit, there are a shit load of people who aren't interested in cars at all, let alone blowing 750k on ones you can't even drive.

    I don't really find anything far fetched that it couldn't be real.
    Although I agree that it doesn't seem fake. Why in the hell would he not plug his app in a interview then he would make more money off of it.

    Because it's fake

    Every track day I've ever been to you must hold a valid drivers license to even get on track, no license no racing. He claims his grandparents bought him the first one, but newer video all of a sudden he is a programmer and bought them himself? What parent in there right mind would give a 9 year old control of 8.5 million? Just does not make any sense. I would put money on that all the cars are his dad's or grandparents and this is just a publicity stunt.

    I will be honest I am jealous of that kid.... But making an app is the best way to make a lot of money. I made some stupid iPhone app like 4 years ago all it does it play siren sounds. Its called Sirens Galore btw haha. I have made approximately $4,000 total off of it over a few years. Thats not a lot of money but its nice to have an extra $50ish coming in every month for what ever, in my case most likely for gas. So it is true if you were to make a game or something really unique you make will make a good amount of coin. I really would like to make another app but coding is difficult and I dont have the patience for it. So if the kid actually programmed his app and didn't use a cheater application that does it for you hats off to him.

    I said it didnt "seem" fake but granted i only watched the first 2 minutes of the first video. I thought if you rented the track you don't need a driver license. Only for track days could be wrong. only thing I picked up is that he didn't mention his app and usually people are pluging the shit out of them to get more purchases. That seems fake to me lol.
