KSI has revealed that it made £7 million in cryptocurrency last year, only to lose it in the bitcoin crash.
The YouTuber and rapper shared this revelation during an appearance Made in Chelsea Star Jamie Lang’s podcast, private parts.
When asked about the “lots of money” the host had invested in bitcoin, KSI replied: “I put £2m in bitcoin – well, I say bitcoin. [in] £2m last year – November, December – but it was in cryptocurrencies.
“I made £7m and now I’ve lost it all. It’s mental. It’s been a whole journey, but I had to experience it. I understand it completely now. I put money into things where I needed to.” Rupally took advantage of myself and I got myself to a point where I lost money because of it.
He explained that the “Bitcoin crash” caused huge losses, adding: “There is no point in crying over spilled milk”.
Despite the contrast in his crypto fortunes, Star said he was “still completely crypto” and called bitcoin “the future”.
