Jeweler, Actor, and Musician Ben Baller took to Instagram to reveal what he considers his biggest financial regret. He wrote that he once acquired 300 BTC when the leading cryptocurrency was changing hands at $700, which he later sold at the rate of $1000, making a decent profit of $90,000. But at the time of writing 300 BTC are worth more than 3 million dollars.

People often ask me and DM me about what my biggest financial regret is… I tell them I had 300 BTC when it was $700 and I sold them at $1,000 😩😭. Nothing fucks with my head more than that. NOTHING! I was coming off the my biggest financial year ever too, so I should have really just kept them. But that made me think if it happened once, then It’ll come back to me again. It has. I been blessed. But still 😤. What’s your biggest financial regret? #Bitcoin #CryptoCurrency #BTC
Ben Baller is not the only celebrity who regrets selling bitcoin prematurely. The famous skater, Tony Hawk, tweeted that he has been riding the wave since last six years and hasn’t bailed yet. He seems bullish about the crypto. Snoop Dogg and 50 Cent back in 2013 announced to sell their albums in bitcoins but did not follow through.
@coinbase dm your info. I want to make it happen.

Well-known singer Akon talked about bitcoin on Breakfast Club radio show he said that he believes cryptocurrencies are more stable than fiat currencies. He further explained that unlike government-issued fiat money, Bitcoin is ultimately controlled by the people.
Celebrities investing in bitcoin can be useful to the crypto community as it would make more and more people aware of the cryptocurrencies.
