Why It Matters: This is the latest Musk's tweet that showcases how much influence he has over the cryptocurrency market, despite recent analysis suggesting that it has been fading away.
His ability to cause the entire crypto market to surge when announcing an investment and adoption of Bitcoin BTC/USD by his electric car manufacturing company Tesla Inc. TSLA and then crash it by announcing dropping it revealed a major weakness in the asset, according to recent remarks by Miami mayor Francis Suarez.
