American rapper 50 Cent took a chance on bitcoin years before anyone knew what cryptocurrency was. In 2014, 50 Cent sold several copies of his album “Animal Ambition” for 700 bitcoins.
At the time, one bitcoin was valued at around Ksh68, 000. The bitcoins, thereafter, sat dormant in his account. Today, the value of one bitcoin has risen to a high of Ksh1.2 million.
50 Cent has 700 of them, which means, he has Ksh861 million in his account, simply because he took a risk.
