A new video could explain how YouTube star Jimmy ‘Mr Beast’ Donaldson really made his money investing in cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin before becoming a huge sensation as an influencer.

The video, created by YouTuber ‘Bulldog Finance,’ digs into Mr Beast’s past, and how – when he first started making videos – he was heavily invested in Bitcoin.

During an appearance on KEEMSTAR’s ‘Mom’s Basement’ podcast, Mr Beast was asked about how his old house was broken into and how he may have lost some Bitcoin, although he managed to recover it and move it to a different wallet.

According to Bulldog Finance, some time ago, Mr Beast purged his channel of all cryptocurrency content. However, there is still some evidence proving that they existed, such an old article that discusses how the YouTuber bought a $100,000 car through cryptocurrency investments.

Additionally, Reddit comments from some of Donaldson’s early fans recall the existence of videos about Bitcoin and other investments. One user even suggested that Mr Beast had an older account on the site by the name of ‘mrbeast6000.’

This account, while not confirmed to be Mr Beast, does have some striking similarities to the YouTuber. For one, while it’s not mentioned in the video, Mr Beast’s own YouTube channel is technically under “MrBeast6000,” as seen in the address bar of his page.

Plus, the account has promoted Mr Beast videos on the Reddit, with the most damning piece of evidence being a League of Legends video posted on the YouTube channel showing the in-game name of ‘Beast60000.’

The mrbeast6000 Reddit account often talked about Bitcoin.

“Based what I would regard to be the balance of probabilities from the content of the account’s past activities, I believe this is Mr Beast’s old Reddit account,” Bulldog Finance claimed.

The account’s comments range from referencing ordering one thousand graphics cards for a crypto warehouse to discussing the risks involved with cryptocurrency investing.

“It’s clear that Mr Beast was a competent cryptocurrency investor,” the YouTuber said. “It’s also clear that by his initial surge in wealth creation that Mr Beast was able to begin upscaling the budget of his videos, introducing a style similar to what we see today.”

It’s certainly a very interesting concept, and could very well explain exactly how Mr Beast began his rise to fame and amassed his fortune.

Chance ‘Sodapoppin’ Morris and Vigors, two key members of the Kitten’s group on the OfflineTV Rust server, are taking a break from the RP server. 

Even though Rust was first released in 2013, it’s experienced incredible levels of popularity in recent weeks thanks to some of Twitch’s biggest streamers.

They’ve, mostly, been flocking to the OfflineTV servers – The Badlands and The Divide – for a bit of roleplaying and PVP action, and it’s given fans some incredible moments. 

While some players have called it out as a phase, and are expecting streamers to move on in one fell swoop, they haven’t just yet. However, a few names are starting to depart from the server, even if it’s just for a break.

Creator’s have flocked to OfflineT’sV RP server ‘The Divide’.

The main two that have departed so far are Sodapoppin and Vigors. They make up part of the Kittens group on the OfflineTV RP server, where they finish every sentence by saying meow. 

Sodapoppin hinted at quitting a few weeks back when the OfflineTV server first got going, but didn’t, and moved over to the new server when more creators where invited. 

He hasn’t played Rust – on stream, anyway – since January 17, saying he’s just not in the mood. “I don’t feel like streaming Rust at atm,” he tweeted on January 18 after a creator skin for his group went live. “I streamed it for 2 hours, but they now made it a drop for mostly everyone’s channel since I have no interest in streaming Rust which is awesome, just filling y’all in.”

Vigors echoed Sodapoppin’s tweet a few hours later, hinting at more members of the Kittens taking a break from Rust.

“Our dumb little group had a fun as f**k time on the rust server but we deciding to take a break for now, he posted. “Met a f**k ton of dope people and am glad I got to experience this last month. Meow.”

In his day not playing Rust, Sodapoppin has still been streaming, but he and others have moved on to different multiplayer games. He’s even made a few returns to VRChat, even getting his Dad to experience it. 

The group could very well return to Rust at some point in the future, but that’ll be up to them. Who knows, everyone else might have moved on to something else by the time they’re ready.
