Bitcoin Takes Off Thanks to Elon Musk


Recommended Posts

Investing.com -  Bitcoin rebounded strongly yesterday and last night, after spending approximately 24 hours below the key psychological threshold of $ 30,000, peaking at $ 32,800 yesterday, after an increase of more than 9% in about 15 hours.

Bitcoin's gains yesterday morning could only be explained by a rebound against cheap buying after Bitcoin fell below $ 30,000, but they were then heightened by an intervention by Elon Musk, the boss of Tesla (NASDAQ:TSLA) (NASDAQ: TSLA ).

On the occasion of the B World conference on cryptocurrencies which was also attended by Jack Dorsey, the boss of Twitter (NYSE:TWTR), and Cathie Wood, the manager of Ark Invest, Musk certainly declared that Tesla will undoubtedly accept Bitcoin as a means of payment again, thanks to the growing proportion of renewable energies used by Bitcoin mining.

Elon Musk, Tesla and Space X have invested in Bitcoin

He also confirmed that he owns Bitcoins in a personal capacity, along with Tesla (which we already knew) and Space X (which was expected but not confirmed).

"I do own Bitcoin, Tesla owns bitcoin, SpaceX owns bitcoin, and I personally own some  Ethereum and Dogecoin of course."

He also assured that these investments are there for the long term:

"We don't sell bitcoin, I don't sell anything personally, and SpaceX doesn't sell bitcoin either," he said.

“If the price of bitcoin goes down, I lose money. I can pump but I don't dump,” Musk said. “I absolutely don't believe in pushing the price up and selling or anything like that. I would love to see bitcoin succeed,” he also said.

While there were other factors behind yesterday's Bitcoin rebound, these comments by Elon Musk undoubtedly helped Bitcoin.

Despite everything, the graphical context calls for caution, as Bitcoin has failed to maintain above $ 32,000, and a downtrend line visible in hourly data since June 29 is currently located towards $ 33,000, a threshold that must therefore be crossed for the technical profile of BTC / USD to really improve.

    • While Layer 2 scaling solutions have helped alleviate congestion on blockchains like Ethereum, Layer 3 rollups are emerging as the next frontier for achieving ultimate scalability and cost-effectiveness. Three prominent layer 3 rollup stand out; ZKlink, Immutable X, and dYdX, each having its distinct strengths. .ZKlink stands out as a prominent player in this space, offering unique advantages compared to other Layer 3 protocols. While Immutable X Built on StarkNet focuses primarily on NFT marketplaces and gaming applications. dYdX utilizes StarkNet for rollups, achieving high throughput for trading activities. With each of the above focusing on a particular user in crypto space, ZKlink take it a bit far by prioritizing interoperability, liquidity solutions, and developer customization. ZKlink also the ability to bridge the gap between different blockchain layers and optimize scalability which makes it a significant force in shaping the future of decentralized applications.   The recent Bitget  listing of ZKLink native token further created buzz around the project due to the anticipation of the round one airdrop. Considering the fact that only ZK link utilizes fast financial transactions throughput using the innovative Ts-Evm makes it more unique and position it as the frontrunner in layer 3 rollup race.
    • I've been exploring numerous methods of passive earning over the years aside from spot trading. These methods include staking, futures trading, OTC trading, bot trading, copy trading, and launchpool. I've achieved some successes along the way, and now I'm trying to streamline and focus on just a few passive income opportunities. Actually looked into a project I encountered on X while browsing for opportunities. Branded as UPLAND, I was kinda drawn due to its Gamefi (NFT, metaverse) affiliation on Bitget's launchpool. Let's see what exploring this token fetches me this time 😁🤞🏻 Would love your shared experience(s) using this feature if any and what it's really like?
