An artist who agreed to be paid in shares of Facebook instead of receiving money when, seven years ago, painted the first headquarters of the company is about to become a millionaire. With the entry into Facebook`s purse, David Choe shares worth over 150 million euros.
Graffiter paid in shares of Facebook became a millionaire
David Choe, 35, was invited to paint the walls of Facebook`s first office in Palo Alto, Calif., in 2005. The payment could be made in cash - some few thousands of dollars - or in shares.
While considering the idea of the company "ridiculous and useless," David Choe decided to take action, says "The New York Times."
Now, after Facebook`s decision to enter the stock, David Choe is one of about a thousand employees holding shares that are about to become millionaires.
Some years after the work at headquarters, David Choe is a successful artist, and although he refused to comment on its new wealth, it is known that he returned to paint a mural on the new headquarters of Facebook, there is even a video that appears to work aided by Mark Zuckerberg, the founder of Facebook.
