The Tesla CEO must be unconcerned about his power in the crypto community. Or maybe he just likes to make waves as a hobby.

But bitcoin crashes to another $6,000 to just around $43,000 after a Twitter conversation with Musk where he hinted that he would be selling all his bitcoins soon. He didn’t actually say that it is done, however, his response to a message causes many people to think that the deed is done.
A Twitter user going by the name @CryptoWhale posted the following tweet:
