Bitcoin’s Price Has Been Tied to Elon’s Twitter Activity This Year

The change in Elon’s profile picture comes only a day after he posted two memes on Twitter suggesting that he and Tesla, were once again parting ways with Bitcoin. The Crypto Twitter community went on to blame his two memes for yesterday’s Bitcoin dip from $39,500 levels to a local low of $35,555 on the same day.

The two memes shared via Twitter add to a long list of Elon Musk’s tweets that have had an immense impact on the price of Bitcoin and all digital assets since Tesla revealed it had bought $1.5 billion worth of Bitcoin in February of this year.

Therefore, it can be loosely concluded that the CEO of Binance was cautioning crypto investors and traders against taking Elon Musk’s tweets on Bitcoin and crypto, as financial advice.
