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.

    • Yes I agree Guru, giving current examples is a good way of doing it! I have been trading for over 20 years and in the last 11 years I found myself mainly trading DAX (Germany) 40, because it is the easiest and most profitable. Which market do you find easiest to trade, Guru? Does anybody else find DAX easier to trade than other markets?  I am interested in hearing other traders' experiences.
    • Source: Coingecko  Source link: https://www.coingecko.com/research/publications/2024-q1-crypto-report The cryptocurrency sector has experienced significant growth in 2024, driven by events like Lugano city's acceptance of crypto payments and the approval of the Bitcoin spot ETF. The industry's market cap reached a record high of $2.9 trillion, with $1.1 trillion added in Q1 alone. Bitcoin surged to a new peak of $73k, surpassing its previous ATH of $68k. Top centralized exchanges like Binance, Bitget, OKX, and Bybit saw substantial growth, with Bitget particularly excelling in derivative trading. Bitget's open interest exceeded OKX's and ranked closely behind Binance and Bybit. Spot trading volume surged from $29B in January to $95B in March, elevating Bitget to the top 7 spot in the spot market and maintaining the 4th position in the derivative market among major centralized exchanges. While other exchanges also witnessed significant growth, Bitget's standout performance has made it the focal point of industry attention. What are your impressions of these findings?
    • DogeDay always brings back memories of 2019 when my friends were diving into Dogecoin and joining farming activities. That's why I'm excited to explore the Bitget DogeDay giveaway event. Plus, with tomorrow's BTC halving, the excitement is doubled!
