KSI made £7million cryptocurrency – and then “lost it all”
KSI said that he made £7 million in bitcoin last year before losing everything in the Bitcoin crisis.
The YouTuber and rapper revealed the news during an interview on Jamie Laing’s podcast, Private Parts, hosted by Made in Chelsea star Jamie Laing.
When he was asked about “a lot of money” he had invested in Bitcoin by the host, KSI replied: “I put £2m into Bitcoin – well, I say Bitcoin. I put [in] £2m last year – November, December – but this was into cryptocurrencies.
“I made £7m and now I’ve lost it all. It’s mental. It’s been a full journey, but I had to experience it. I fully understand it now. I put money in things where I essentially leveraged myself and I kinda over-leveraged myself to a point where I lost money because of it.”
He claimed that the large loss was caused by “the Bitcoin crash,” adding, “It’s pointless to mourn over spilt milk.”
Despite the downturn in his cryptocurrency fortunes, the actor stated that he is “still 100% crypto” and that Bitcoin is “the future.”
Meanwhile, KSI’s latest album, “All Over The Place,” was released on Friday (July 16). Future and 21 Savage make cameo appearances on the track “Number 2,” as well as Yungblud, Bugzy Malone, and Lil Durk.
Speaking about the album before its release, KSI said: “I’m super excited for the people to hear this album. I’ve improved on everything I did with [2020’s] ‘Dissimulation’.
“The singing has improved. The writing has improved. The beats have more layers to it, I’m a lot more experimental, I’m way more comfortable on the mic etc. This album is a reflection of a lot of hard work and passion combined and I’m really proud to be releasing it.”
