50 Cent Accidentally Earns £5m Bitcoin And He Didn't Even Know
50 Cent is apparently SO rich he forget he earned a cheeky £5 million million pounds. Isn’t fame weird? We may be able to find him in da club, but in fact, he can’t find his money.
Or more specifically, he simply let a whole Bitcoin fortune amass while he chilled out and distracted himself doing who know’s what. (Not making new music, that’s for dang sure.)
Rewind to 2014 and the rapper, otherwise known as Curtis Jackson, allowed fans to purchase his album Animal Ambition using Bitcoin – a form of cryptocurrency – apparently earning 700 Bitcoin from sales.
Which doesn’t sound like a lot. But when converted to IRL money, it came to over $400,000, which in today’s value has his Bitcoin bank balance hanging around $7 million and $8.5 million.
