50Cent made over $7M selling album with Bitcoin in 2014

50 Cent has made over $7million between 2014 and 2018 when he sold his fifth studio album, “Animal Ambition.”

TMZ reports that the rapper, who was born Curtis Jackson, has been unveiled as one of the top American celebs that bought into cryptocurrency business led by Bitcoin earlier than others.
50cent reportedly took a chance on Bitcoin years before anyone knew what cryptocurrency even was, to sell his album but now enjoys the risk as he’s been paid off more than 7 million times over.

The history

In 2014, 50 decided to accept a fraction of Bitcoin for the sale of his fifth studio album, “Animal Ambition,” online.
As at that time when the rapper became the first to accept Bitcoin, his accrued sales were valued at around $662 per bitcoin.
It was further reported that “Animal Ambition” pulled in about 700 Bitcoin in sales totalling over $400,000.
Interestingly, the fund sat dormant in 50‘s account for years till the value of Bitcoin steadily and astronomically grew in 2017 to over $10,000.
Till 2018, Bitcoin’s value has fluctuated between $10k and $12k per coin, hence, 50cent has arguably kept something between $7 million and $8.5 million for four years.

L. A Prisoners Infect Themselves With Coronavirus To Get Early Release (VIDEO)

Published

By

A group of silly L.A area prison inmates were very eager to contract the dreaded coronavirus .

They attempted this because they believed that would trigger their ticket out of prison.

According to the L.A. County Sheriff Alex Villanueva who made the startling revelation Monday, said about twenty-four (24) inmates at the Pitchess Detention Center in Castaic attempted (and somewhat succeeded, apparently) to infect themselves way back in mid-April 2020.

The Sheriff revealed that their department saw an increase in spike in confirmed cases out of nowhere.

He said that when they investigated, they found a high number of inmates living in one block of the prison appeared to be deliberately trying to infect each other with COVID-19 any way they could from behind bars.

When Alex Villanueva played the surveillance footages he and his team combed through carefully , and it showed several inmates hanging out in a common area and passing around what Alex described as a hot cup of water, as well as one face mask they’d each put on all in hopes of getting sympathy from a judge to spring them from the facility and let them go home.

But it turns out, their little ploy worked but, only halfway.

Villanueva reported that 21 of the inmates (out of 50 in the block) caught the ‘Coronavirus.

“What they won’t catch is a break” said the Sheriff.

The Buhari administration has been known for enforcing the Nigerian people to patronize Nigerian made goods though without much strategy to make life easier while this transition to economic growth is enforced. Many Nigerians have tagged it a harsh move that is insensitive and inhumane but moreso, Reno Omokri has singled out signals of hypocrisy in the President of Nigeria by outlining certain traits of family moves of the President that shows that he(Buhari) as the No.1 citizen has no regards for anything made in Nigeria but yet wants other Nigerians to embrace Nigerian made goods.

Reno Omokri ‘s tweet reads:

His kids schooled in England. His wife just returned from a 3 month UK stay. His daughter gave birth to his grandchild in Spain (made in Spain), yet
