Today, at the peak of a calm weekend, Elon Musk tweeted that “Bitcoin is my safe word.”
According to cryptopotato, bitcoin’s price spiked almost $200 to $23,800 immediately after his tweet.
Twenty minutes later, Musk tweeted a reply to his original tweet, stating that he was “Just kidding, who needs a safe word anyway!?”
Musk’s tweets are known for their vagueness, whether he tweets about TSLA shares too expensive, Dogecoin, or SpaceX.
Nevertheless, the current tweet is somehow related to his previous one when he was also speaking of the primary cryptocurrency.
Ten days into the current year of 2020, Musk tweeted that “Bitcoin is not my safe word.” If you had noticed the date today, it is exactly ten days before the end of 2020. Back in January, bitcoin was trading nearly around $8,000. As of writing his second tweet, bitcoin is trading at $23,800, a day after setting its all-time high level of $24,200.
Like always, his tweet leaves about 40 million Twitter followers asking questions, and it’s undoubtedly a win for Bitcoin to be in front of such a huge audience once again.
