50 Cent Is A Bitcoin Millionaire

50 Cent is now a Bitcoin millionaire. According to NPR, the rapper just found out that he hit it big in the cryptocurrency game. Before Bitcoin was big, 50 Cent took a chance on it in 2014 when he accepted it as a payment for his album “Animal Ambition.”

The album gave him 700 bitcoins, which was worth around $460,000 at the time — meaning one bitcoin was worth $662 then. Now they are worth close to $7.7 million.

He tweeted, “A little bitcoin anyone? LOL. I know I make you sick but excuse me… I’m getting to the bag #denofthieves.”

According to Vulture, this comes after the rapper filed for bankruptcy in 2015. He famously posted pictures of money stacks spelling out “BROKE.” Fortunately, he paid off his $22 million debt in 2017. What’s more is now he has millions in Bitcoin — so it seems like he’s more than safe financially.
