Curtis Jackson known by his stage name 50 Cent recently realized that he is a Bitcoin millionaire. In 2014, 50 cent permitted that interested crypto-enthusiasts buy his album with Bitcoin, and it seems like he accumulated quite a fortune with this move.
According to TMZ, 50 cent stashed about $8 Million in Bitcoin with the 2014 album sales. He left his Bitcoin sales untouched and had apparently forgotten about them until recently when he remembered to look up on his coins which came up to a rounded figure of about 700 Bitcoins.
50 Cent is a known luminary and visionary and his fifth studio album with which he raked in this sizeable number of Bitcoin is titled ‘Animal Ambition.’ Bitcoin was worth $657 on the date the album was launched – a bitcoin is currently worth $11,000.
The artist seems to corroborate this story as he posted on instagram that: “Not bad for a kid from South Side, I’m so proud of me.” He followed it up with another comment “I’m a keep it real I forgot I did that…” He then uploaded a bitcoin image on instagram accompanied with a statement that says “all moneys is good money over here.”
