Business 50 Cent Might Of Raked in Millions, Thanks To Bitcoin Published 2 years ago on January 24, 2018 By Vanja K. A few years earlier, 50 Cent’s album sales weren’t doing as good as they used too. For example, 50’s fifth studio album, the “Animal Ambition” didn’t sell much, particularly by Fif’s standards. The 2014 project only did 47K in the first week and it was kinda downhill from there. But, it seems there’s a silver lining after all. During its release, 50 Cent was pretty much a foreseeing genius, as he accepted Bitcoin as payment for his album, raking impressive amounts a few years later. According to various sources, the customers could get a copy of the album for just a fraction of a whole bitcoin. During that time, Bitcoin was worth about $662/bitcoin and it was revealed that “Animal Ambition” pulled in about 700 bitcoin in sales … resulting in $400k in overall sales. Fast-forward to today and it seems that 50 was a money genius, as the rapper’s been sitting on anywhere between $7 million and $8.5 million – if we take current Bitcoin prices into account. And the story gets even better for 50 Cent; if he sold his Bitcoin last month, he could of easily raked in a cool 14 – 16 million. Not a bad payday for what seemed like a flop – to 50’s standards – that is. We’ll be certainly on the hunt for more information about this, but we’re sure 50 is one happy cryptocurrency pioneer someplace. And the window shopping from his much-famed video can clearly be a thing of the past.
