https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ronald_Wayne
Ronald Wayne (born May 17, 1934) is an American retired electronics industry worker.
He co-founded Apple Computer (now Apple Inc.) with Steve Wozniak and Steve Jobs,
providing administrative oversight for the new venture.
However, he soon sold his share of the new company back to Jobs and Wozniak for $800 US dollars,
and later accepted $1,500 to forfeit any claims against Apple (in total, equivalent to $9,498 in 2017).

As of August 2, 2018, if Wayne had kept his 10% stake in Apple Inc.,
it would have been worth over $100 billion, making him the second richest man on earth.

They’re called native americans.
What Columbus was sent to do by the Spanish was to find a new route to get to India faster; after all,
India was one of the richest parts of the world, where they could trade for riches and go on to the Indies to get in on the Spice trade.
Columbus, unaware of the presence of the Americas, thought that if he sailed west, he would eventually loop around the world and reach Malacca.
However, he ended up landing near Cuba, thus rediscovering the Americas for the Europeans.

While Columbus’ journey is considered a huge historical marker, and an important (re)discovery, Columbus himself was no hero.
On the island where he landed, he and his crew reduced the local population by 90%, forcing the last, miserable 10% into slave labor for gold.
If they didn’t get enough gold, their children and family would be killed.
This horrible policy became the standard for other European colonialists who came to the Americas.
Fast forward to today, and the Native Americans/Indios make up the poorest class in the land that used to be theirs.
So while Columbus was important, he is not to be remembered heroically.
