50 Cent Bitcoin millionaire : Get rich crypto style

50 Cent Bitcoin millionaire

Bitcoin is one of the buzzwords of the year as the crypto currency rose substantially at the back end of last year with early investors bagging a fortune.

One of the biggest winners has to be 50 cent, the rapper recently announced he has recently remembered he’d taken payment for his 2014 album Animal Ambition in a total of 700 Bitcoin from fans.

50 Cent always forward thinking with his investments (he once sold a company he had  shares in Vitaminwater to Coca cola for over 4 billion dollars) stated that he took the payments as he wanted to “stay with the times”

At the time bitcoin was worth around $660 each and ultimately represented a reasonable portion of the rapper’s earnings from the album: Around half a million dollars. Today though, with bitcoin worth north of $10,000 each, that’s a much more sizable amount. Indeed with around 700 bitcoin in total, 50 Cent’s cryptocurrency fortune is worth close to $8 million,.

“Not bad for a kid from South Side, I’m so proud of me,” 50 Cent – whose real name is Curtis Jackson – wrote on Instagram, confirming the news in a post that featured a screenshot of the TMZ article.
