The ‘Vladimir Club’ was something that began back in August 2012 on the btctalk forums.
To join, you had to own 1% of 1% of the total supply of Bitcoin – which was about 2100 BTC at the time (21,000,000 * 0.01 * 0.01 = 2100 BTC), but of course lots of Bitcoin was lost since then so perhaps joining the club now is a lot less.
Back then to get in cost around $18,000 ~ $21,000 to get into the club. That was big money to spend on a then still pretty unknown thing.
If you joined the club and were a hodler you’d be sitting on a cool $126m USD today.
I love reading about this sort of thing and the legends of early crypto. I can imagine some of these guys would’ve sold, lost their coins or maybe even amassed more along the way since 2012.
I wonder if there are any exclusive groups out there now that only let you in if you can prove you own X amount of a certain crypto.
