US rapper is holding $6M Bitcoin
The 30 years old US rapper, who recently retired from his music business to “focus on being a great father,’” took to his Instagram handle to disclose his latest financial move. He admitted to buying Bitcoin worth $6 million in the past month. Judging by the upticks in the cryptocurrency’s price since October, one can easily conclude that the US rapper’s Bitcoin investment is up exponentially.

From his tweet, the Mexican is also a big fan of cryptocurrency. He wrote on Twitter:
“Bitcoin protects the citizen from government expropriation. Many people ask me if I have bitcoins, YES. I have 10% of my liquid portfolio invested […].”
