As her very first investment, Camille Requiestas impulsively chose to put $500 into bitcoin. Two weeks after making the investment in November, the price of bitcoin surged from $8,000 per coin to $20,000 per coin, according to The Wrap. Requiestas, a 28-year-old TV reporter in California, told The Wrap she excitedly watched her investment grow. "I just did it kind of blindly, which is probably not smart. But I knew I wanted to invest in something," she said.
