Experts Predict Bitcoin To Soar in 2019
With 2018 being less than kind to Bitcoin and the crypto markets, investors and traders alike have got their fingers crossed for 2019 to be the year that sends Bitcoin to its once all-time high of $20,000. But the thing is, we know the highs Bitcoin has potential to reach but what about the lows? Investors are still wondering where the bottom exactly is for Bitcoin. The co-founder of Union Square Ventures, Fred Wilson believes that the bears grip on the market and the losses that many people have had is nearly over saying, ?I expect we will see some bullish runs, followed by selling pressures taking us back to retest the lows.? Wilson goes on to say that the bulls will run once more in 2019 and that the end of the bear market is just around the corner saying: ?I think this bottoming out process will end sometime in 2019 and we will slowly enter a new bullish phase in crypto.?

50 Cent Just Made Millions Off of Bitcoin Entirely by Accident | GQ
According to legend, the man born Curtis Jackson took the name 50 Cent as a metaphor for "change," because rappers, much like people who write about rappers, are big pun fans. (See what I did there?) Lately though, Jackson's stage name has been the source of a lot of irony as the rapper entered, and then exited, bankruptcy. But not only is he on the upswing?it turns out that he might have accidentally become the one thing everyone is trying to become these days: a Bitcoin millionaire. On Wednesday, TMZ reported that 50 Cent has come into a Bitcoin fortune, thanks to the then-strange decision to accept Bitcoin when selling his 2014 album, Animal Ambition?and people took him up on it. Animal Ambition earned 700 Bitcoin, which TMZ estimates to come out to seven million in 2018 U.S. dollars. Imagine that: A sales stunt that was, at the time, effectively meaningless has now, almost four years later, turned into a damn fortune. If this is real, 50 Cent fell ass-backwards into a digital gold mine. This publication was obtained by us on January 16, 2019 1:36 PM. Visit www.gq.com for additional posts.

50 Cent Swears Under Oath He Doesn't Have Any Bitcoin - Motherboard
In the world of Bitcoin, tales of fortunes won and lost abound, but few have attracted the attention garnered by 50 Cent?s Bitcoin saga. In January, the rapper took to social media to brag that he had ?forgotten? about the approximately 700 bitcoins he had received in payment for his 2014 album, ?Animal Ambition.? At the time, those bitcoins were worth about $450,000, but at today?s prices, they?d be worth closer to $7 million (actually, it?d be quite a bit more, if you include all the Bitcoin forks that have happened since then). ?Technology is what?s changing the business gotta get with it,? 50 cent wrote in a 2014 Reddit AMA about his decision to accept bitcoin for the album. ?I take money no matter if its coins or dollars.?

50 Cent No Longer Bragging About a Bitcoin Fortune Now That the US Government Is Interested
It?s been a month since 50 Cent was part of the best feel-good story of the cryptocurrency boom. Following reports that the hip-hop star had earned about $7.8 million worth of bitcoin from sales of an otherwise forgotten album, he seemed to confirm the news on Instagram. But when pressed in bankruptcy court, Fiddy acknowledged that wasn?t the case. TMZ was the first to claim that the rapper had fortuitously accepted Bitcoin payments for his 2014 album Animal Ambition and for some reason had never cashed them out. The report claimed that, at the time of the album?s release, he raked in 700 bitcoins that would?ve been valued around $400,000. These days they would?ve been worth closer to $7.8 million. And Motherboard crunched the numbers to include the forks that occurred in the intervening years, which brought total up to $9.2 million. 50 Cent?s response was coy. In a now-deleted comment on Instagram, he wrote, ?I?m a keep it real. I forgot I did that shit.? Now, however, he claims didn?t actually do that shit.

Rapper 50 Cent: Actually, I'm Not a Bitcoin Millionaire | Fortune Close
Rapper 50 Cent, legally known as Curtis Jackson III, says he isn?t a bitcoin millionaire after all despite his implying that he was just over a month ago. At that time, TMZ published a report stating that Jackson had accepted roughly 700 bitcoin as part of his work on the 2014 album, Animal Ambition. Back then, the bitcoin stash would?ve gone for about $400,000, but with today?s rate, the rapper would?ve been sitting on nearly $8 million. He all but confirmed the news with a screenshot of the article on Instagram with the caption, ?Not bad for a kid from South Side, I?m so proud of me.? Now, however, Jackson says that he doesn?t actually own any bitcoin, and his post from Instagram has been deleted. Chapter 11 bankruptcy documents cited by CNBC and referencing the TMZ report, state that bitcoins received for the album were ?contemporaneously? exchanged for dollars, which would?ve netted him a much lower haul four years ago.

50 Cent admitted that he did not, in fact, make $8 million in bitcoin by accepting the cryptocurrency as a form of payment for his album Animal Ambition back in 2014. In a Friday court document obtained by The Blast, the rapper admits that he has never owned bitcoin, and only went along with the initial report from TMZ because ?so long as a press story is not irreparably damaging to my image or brand, I usually do not feel the need to publicly deny the reporting.? He added, ?This is particularly true when I feel the press report in question is favorable to my image or brand.? It did make 50 Cent initially look like a baller when, at the height of bitcoin?s value, he appeared to be $8 million deep in cryptocurrency. But, to prove that he is bankrupt, he ultimately had to reveal that he does not own any bitcoin. It?s unclear whether 50 Cent is lying to bankruptcy court or earlier on social media.

50 Cent accidentally made $8 million in bitcoin - The Verge clock menu more-arrow no yes Verge3.0_Logomark_Color_1
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.
