Singer, 50 Cents Won’t Forget This One Thing Ever Again: Just An Inkling

So 50 Cent forgot something he possessed that is now worth a lot of money.  It started in 2014 when the singer released the album Animal Ambition.  I have an inkling he won’t forget about this trove of coins ever again.

When Animal Ambition was released 50 Cent became the first artist to accept Bitcoin as payment.  He received about 700 of these cryptocurrencies.  Those 700 Bitcoins are worth over $11,000 each currently, making the lot worth between $7-8 Million.

According to the chart below, in 2014, Bitcoin was worth about $13 each and had recently gone to over $19,000.
