  1. "time to sell" (2018) so many people were WRONG WRONG WRONG, kudos to anybody who held out through the 20K mainstream media mark you got balls of fucking steel!

  2. Making profit just got so easy thanks to Mr Russell's Strategy. I really want to use this medium to appreciate his effort and tremendous change in my financial life. i put in 2BTC to his strategy and in a period of a month i got over 8BTC in return, sounds too good to be truth right?! but now i know one don't just become a millionaire without taking no risk, you can also contact him on (offcialrussell.bitflyer@gmail.com please always pass your testimonies for others who doesnt know about this strategy naby people keep to them selves but thank God i was on the right track to meet with this God sent man Russell..

  3. Total bullshit story. If this story is to be believed, 700 BTC @ $650/ea. ≈ $455,000 revenue generated from this album in strictly bitcoin sales. At a price of $9.99 per album digital download, this story is claiming that over 45,000 people purchased this album with BTC. It doesn't seem even remotely possible that that many 50 Cent fans were buying things with bitcoin back in 2014. Idk about you but I don't know anyone who was buying things with bitcoin in 2014, and I know very few people doing it in 2018.

  4. Bullshit. You dont know if he kept that bitcoin. Its normal for online shops to take bitcoin but most of them automatically trade that bitcoin for fiat money right away..
