Graffiti Artist's Unexpected Luck (11 pics)

Facebook is on the verge of cashing in on what could be the largest IPO in history based on the company’s valuation of $100 billion. However, the luckiest person in the whole deal could be graffiti artist David Choe.

 

The artist was asked to lay down some funky art in 2005 in Facebook’s first Palo Alto office. Then president Sean Parker offered Choe cash or stock, and David reluctantly chose the stock thinking it would never be worth much. However, it turns out that his small slice of Facebook stock could be worth an estimated $200 million!

He chose the stock over money now. Which would have been around 10-20k [my guess] But instead he took a chance/risk on the stock hoping it might be worth something someday. That is what all investors do everyday take the risk of losing it all or gaining it all. Congratulations Choe you earned it by taking the risk of never getting a dime.
