What is Christopher Poole's Net Worth?

Christopher Poole is an American internet entrepreneur noted for founding the website 4chan who has a net worth of $2.5 million. Christopher Poole was born in New York City in 1988 and attended Virginia Commonwealth University for a few semesters before dropping out. He originally started 4chan anonymously in 2003, under the pseudonym moot – which is always written in lower case letters. 4chan is an English-language imageboard website. Users generally post anonymously, with the most recent posts appearing above the rest.

4chan is split into various boards with their own specific content and guidelines. Its boards were originally used for the posting of pictures and discussion of manga and anime, as the site was modeled on Japanese imageboards .Christopher Poole's actual name (previously known only as moot) was revealed on July 9, 2008, in The Wall Street Journal. The media has concluded that there is an outside chance that Christopher Poole was not moot's real name, rather an obscure reference to a 4chan inside joke. The Washington Post concurred that "Christopher Poole" could be "all a big hoax, a 'gotcha.' It would be just what you'd expect from the creator of 4chan." In March 2009, Time backpedaled somewhat on the issue by placing the moot persona on the 2009 Time 100 finalists list.
