Finma takes tough action: Anger put a damper on crypto prodigy


Dadvan Yousuf (21) came to Switzerland as a refugee. He has made a huge fortune with cryptocurrencies and NFTs. He usually lives in the posh Hotel Dolder Grand in Zurich. He wears a Richard Mille watch worth 600,000 francs on his wrist. Not entirely immodest, he calls himself the “youngest self-made billionaire in Switzerland”. And proves this with various documents when Blick visits him in the luxury hotel.

His big dream: One day to launch his own cryptocurrency. But the financial market supervisory authority Finma puts a big spanner in the works. Almost 24 hours before Yousuf wanted to launch his own cryptocurrency. Finma has now stopped this with a super-provisional injunction. That doesn’t sit well with the Iraqi refugee and his Dhornii foundation.
