50 Cent accidentally made $8 million in bitcoin

In 2014, rapper 50 Cent let people buy his album Animal Ambition using bitcoin. He then let his account lie unused for years, and only just recently discovered that he’s now a bitcoin millionaire, as first reported by TMZ.

At the time, a single bitcoin was worth only $662, and the rapper’s fans could pick up the album for a fraction of that. In total, he pulled in over $400,000. Since then, the value of bitcoin has soared: the price of the cryptocurrency rose as high as $17,000 earlier this month, only to drop under $10,000 in recent weeks. (At the time of writing, bitcoin is now worth a little more than $11,000.) After sitting untouched in his account for years, 50 Cent’s earnings are now worth $7 million to $8.5 million, based on the current fluctuating bitcoin valuation.

Bitcoin evangelists on Twitter were quick to respond to 50 Cent, pitching him the various crypto platforms and coins that he should check out next. One of them even joked that 50 Cent would like the coin DeepOnion because it used to be valued at fifty cents.

50 Cent is just one of many people who acquired bitcoin, only to forget about it. He’s lucky that he remembered his login info — many others have forgotten their old account logins and lost out on potential wealth, which will forever be locked away due to the nature of cryptocurrency.

Eminem Teases Possible New Single Called ‘Walk On Water’

He also seemingly confirmed his new album will be titled ‘Revival.’

Eminem has seemingly confirmed the title of his upcoming album. After weeks of rumors and fake prescription ads popping up for the drug “Revival,” Em posted a mysterious image to his social media of a “Revival” prescription note on Wednesday (Nov. 8) and teased a possible new single off his highly-anticipated album.

The “Revival” prescription note follows the same design as the fake ads that began to circulate on the internet back in October. The note simply read, “‘Walk On Water'” and “Take as needed” with a website link at the bottom of the page.

If you head to the website and quickly examine the content, you’ll find a list of health conditions the prescription drug Revival is supposed to treat. “Tell your doctor about all health conditions, including if you: Have a history of confusion or poor judgment; Are allergic to midwestern tympanic stimulators; Are pregnant or nursing,” the list reads.

While Em hasn’t officially announced the title of the album or release date for “Walk On Water,” he’s set to appear on Saturday Night Live on Nov. 18 and should likely have some new music to share by then .
