Imagine waking up one day and suddenly remembering that you owned over eight million dollars worth of #Bitcoin.

His fans were then quick to refer him to other platforms of cryptocurrency apart from Bitcoin and suggested that he does the same thing again, which is to invest in cryptocurrencies since their value might increase several folds into the future.

50 Cent has a history of smart investments.

Investors may suggest that 50 Cent cash in his coins soon, as Bitcoin saw its highest value just under $20,000 before Christmas but has since fallen to $10,962. Had 50 Cent cashed in his sum four years ago, it would have only amounted to approximately $400,000.

50 Cent was among the first musicians to accept bitcoin for his work, starting with his 2014 album Animal Ambition.

From this deal, he obtained over 700 bitcoins.

The rapper, whose real name is Curtis James Jackson III, apparently forgot that he took a chance on the cryptocurrency in 2014 and wound up making nearly $8 million four years later. Since 2014, the price of Bitcoin has skyrocketed.

He is just one in a long list of people who have made their fortune from Bitcoin including Tyler and Cameron Winklevoss, the American twins who became the first Bitcoin billionaires.

It's only recently that the rapper turned actor discovered this bitcoin stash and there couldn't be a better time.

50 Cent, whose real name is Curtis Jackson, has confirmed his incredible earnings on Twitter and Instagram. He later commented on his post: "Ima keep it real, I forgot I did that shit lol".
