50 Cent Forgot He Sold Albums For Bitcoin, His Stash is Now Worth $8 Million

He left his account untouched for years – until now!

In 2014, popular rapper 50 Cent allowed people to buy Animal Ambition, his then new album, using bitcoin. He has since left that account untouched and, much to his surprise, he recently found out that he has amassed millions because of it.

According to reports, a single bitcoin back in 2014 was only worth $662 and fans were able to buy 50 Cent’s music for a fraction of the amount. All in all, he made more than $400,000 from album sales. Bitcoin’s value has since skyrocketed and has went as much as $17,000 just this month.

In fact, he even posted about it on social media. As the rapper recently shared on Instagram and Twitter:

“Not bad for a kid from South Side, I’m so proud of me.”

“Ima keep it real, I forgot I did that sh*t lol,” the artist also added.

This, of course, doesn’t automatically mean that everyone should hop on the cryptocurrency craze without thinking.

It’s still best to study more about it before giving it a shot.

“The price of Bitcoin, which is widely believed to be the strongest and most stable of all the made-up measurements of money, has dropped below $12,000.

“Just days ago, Bitcoin was a burgeoning pot of gold as tangible as the leprechauns who wait at the end of the rainbow, rising towards a $20,000 value per coin.

“Yet last week, it fell more than 10 per cent, meaning its total drop in the past month equates to about 40 per cent.

“The drop came amid suggestions from South Korean officials who want to look at imposing new regulations on the currency.

“Finance minister Kim Dong-yeon said the country might ban trading in the currencies entirely, pending a government review.”

That Time Buzz Aldrin Punched A Moon Landing Conspiracy Theorist In The Face

After calling him a liar and a coward, Aldrin, without hesitation, punches the moon landing denier right in the face.

It has been nearly half a century since NASA’s Apollo 11 landed on the moon. Still, a lot of people refuse to believe it. That it was merely a hoax that America put up in order to show excellence and superiority during the birth of space explorations. And one of these conspiracy theorists is none other than the infamous Bart Sibrel.

Apparently, for Sibrel, his claims were not taken lightly by Buzz Aldrin, the second guy next to Neil Armstrong to step on the moon’s surface. Sibrel was caught in a footage, asking Aldrin to swear on the Bible and reveal the truth.
