Elon Response To Pump and Dump Comment
Famous investor Dave Portnoy made a pump & dump comment on Elon Musk after learning that Tesla was selling Bitcoin.
Do I understand the situation correctly? First Elon Musk buy Bitcoin, pumps up the PRICE and then he dump Bicoin to makes a fortune.
No, you do not. I have not sold any of my Bitcoin. Tesla sold 10% of its holdings essentially to prove liquidity of Bitcoin as an alternative to holding cash on balance sheet.– Elon Musk (@elonmusk) April 26, 2021
