New CNBC Documentary Chronicles The Lives of Bitcoin Millionaires and StreetWear

Cam Wolf over at GQ caught up with 19-year-old Eric Finnman 

subject of a new CNBC documentary chronicling the lives of Bitcoin millionaires. It turns out cryptocurrency investors love streetwear—and streetwear retailers love being paid in cryptocurrency.

“I wake up and I'm just in my blanket made of hundred [dollar bills] and I get up and they fall off my face and I jump into my Yeezys as soon as I get off the bed and brush my teeth with a Supreme toothbrush. It's just a day in the life, so if it so happens to be flexing in that day in the life, then what a coincidence,” says Finnman. 

The list of apparel retailers that accept cryptocurrency so far is short, but the ones that have started accepting Bitcoin and the like are particularly bullish on the technology powering it, blockchain. (Let’s get this out of the way: Blockchain cuts out middlemen like banks or Venmo-type apps, allows parties to trade directly, and keeps a running list of all those transactions.) Retailers are as gung-ho about the technology behind Bitcoin as any crypto bro on Twitter, and these aren’t just random stores investing in Bitcoin—huge players like Overstock.com have also enthusiastically gotten into the mix.
