Happy February, Blockfolians!
Elon Musk caused quite the stir late last week when he changed his Twitter bio to a single word: #Bitcoin.
He also followed it with this cryptic tweet:
The market loved it - jumping about 10% following the tweet. While those prices came back down over the weekend, Elon followed this up with some further thoughts in his first ever Clubhouse chat.
I do at this point think bitcoin is a good think. I am supporter of bitcoin. I am late to the party but a supporter. Bitcoin is on the verge of getting broad acceptance by traditional finance people.
All that’s left is for him to announce that Tesla or SpaceX have put treasury into BTC.
