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.

Tana Mongeau has responded to a video of her ex-girlfriend Bella Thorne who was filmed kissing another influencer in a TikTok that’s had millions of views.

Bella Thorne was at Clubhouse BH this week, the creator collective founded by Daisy Keech. The “Shake it Up” actress collaborated with influencer Teala Dunn in TikTok videos.

But in one video she was seen kissing her directly on the lips. The clip has already racked up more than 8 million views and 1.5 million likes.

It’s unsurprising that the pair are hanging out, as Teala and Bella have known each other for several years after both appearing on Shake It Up together. Bella makes regular appearances in influencers’ social media posts and even music videos.

Teala recently joined Clubhouse BH and has come under fire in recent weeks for repeatedly posting TikToks that use the same joke, over and over. Her video with Bella Thorne even plays into the same joke where she begins the video saying: “Fun fact, actually really really sad fact.”

Bella is also the ex-girlfriend of popular YouTuber Tana Mongeau. They dated for over a year but broke up in February 2019, and have thrown shade at each other over social media since.

Tana responded to the kiss by duetting the TikTok from her own account, adding: “People really pretend to be my friend,” and then commented “It’s a joke…kinda? Like?”

TikTokers and other influencers weighed in with their opinions too. Harry Jowsey commented: “What happened last time someone hung out with your ex?” referring to drama between the two and Francesca Farago in September.

Francesca and Tana were rumored to be dating, but they got into a fight after Tana posted a video with Harry, Francesca’s ex-boyfriend.

Another user got over 10,000 likes on one comment under Tana’s TikTok that said: “Teala hasn’t even done anything to me, yet she triggers me so much and idek why.”

Teala herself commented: “Girl what???” Despite claiming her response is a joke. But the pair appeared to have resolved any issues that may have come up after Teala tweeted: “Ummm I freaking love @tanamongeau everything’s fine y’all there’s no drama,” and Tana responded with love heart emojis.

Whether a romance is blossoming between Teala and Bella is yet to be determined.
