The Lone Star State has some five-star talent.

Two Indian-American siblings in Frisco, Texas, are showing a precocious gift for cryptocurrency and business. Ishaan and Aanya Thakur, 14 and 9, respectively, have been earning over $30,000 a month by mining cryptocurrency.

How did they accomplish this? By learning from YouTube videos, and updating their equipment from their earnings and a loan taken by their father, Manish Raj.

“Crypto mining is just like mining for gold or diamonds,” Ishaan told CNBC Make It. “Instead of using shovels, you mine with computers. Instead of finding a piece of gold or a diamond in the mine, you find a cryptocurrency.”
