“Not Alike” is not the debut of the oldest cryptocurrency in the world of rap music. Earlier, rapper Akon created his own cryptocurrency.
In January this year, Curtis Jackson, known as 50 Cent, was named the owner of millions of dollars in bitcoins. He won digital coins selling a few years ago the album “Animal Ambition” for digital coins. Interestingly, he later denied that he was the owner of any bitcoin, and his lawyer allegedly said that Jackson “never owned and does not own a bitcoin account or any bitcoins”.
