Bitcoin-Rapper thick in the business | Sido & Kool Savas, Gramatik and 50 Cent
By Andre Eberle – 24 April 20180
Gramatik, real name Denis Jašarević, is a well-known DJ and music producer, who is especially popular in the USA. Already in 2016 he published the title “Satoshi Nakamoto” which today has over 320,000 views on YouTube.
The Slovenian emigrated to the United States and settled in Brooklyn. So far he has sold more than 100,000 songs. He is also a big Bitcoin fan who has been dealing with the subject for a long time.
Also in the show of Gramatik the day before yesterday a Bitcoin-Meme was shown: HODL. The term HODL is used by many people, including rappers.

The origin of HODL and what it means
This Bitcoin-Meme was created when the drunken Bitcointalk user GameKyuubi “holding” could no longer spell correctly. He explained in 2013 why he would become Bitcoin HODLn. HODLn means holding bitcoin, crypto currencies or other assets for the long term.

In a very entertaining way GameKyuubi explained that he was a bad trader. He can’t see ups and downs and not just make a milliono bucks like other good traders “pit paf piffy wing wong wang”.


Sido & Kool Sava’s Hodln
Also Sido & Kool Savas, two well-known German rappers to whom not much more needs to be said, used the term HODLn for their new track. Even Julian Hosp, the German-speaking crypto guru who wrote the book “Kryptowährungen einfach erklärt “*, can be seen in the intro to the song.
Shortly after the release of the music video for “Hodln”, Rapudate reported that Kool Savas bought a sports car with Bitcoin. Savas brought his ledger Hardware Wallet to pay a fancy McLaren with Bitcoin.

50 cents
50 Cent was the first famous rapper to accept Bitcoin for the sale of his album “Animal Ambition” in 2014. The album cost 5.50 US dollars, the equivalent of 0.0088 Bitcoin. Through his album he could take 700 Bitcoins in total. He had rediscovered it in 2018 and was very proud of himself, as he announced on Twitter.

However, since he filed for private insolvency in 2015, he would have had to declare this find with retroactive effect and probably hand it in. Shortly thereafter, 50 cents deleted his tweet and in the insolvency application he stated that he had no Bitcoins at all. He merely wanted to take advantage of the positive press, which portrayed him as a good businessman.

This resulted in the following meme: “50 cents really doesn’t have any bitcoins these days. Monero is his crypto currency now.”
