Musk and Portnoy’s Bitcoin debate

Curiously, earlier today, CEO of Tesla and SpaceX Elon Musk stood up to Barstool Sports chief Dave Portnoy, telling him that he has been holding tight to his Bitcoin stash. In contrast, Tesla had sold 10 percent of the BTC from its balance sheet to prove the coin’s liquidity.

While, on Monday, Portnoy tweeted that he had bought a single Bitcoin. 

He decided not to buy more for fear of another volatility wave, which made him sell his BTC and LINK back in August 2020 after being convinced to enter crypto by the Winklevoss twins.

Tesla has sold $272 million worth of Bitcoin, securing a profit of $101 million.

The company initially disclosed its mammoth $1.5 billion investment in the world’s largest cryptocurrency in early February.        

Last month, Tesla also adopted Bitcoin as a new payment method.

A long-term bet

During Tesla’s earnings call, CFO Zachary Kirkhorn said that Bitcoin was “a good decision” for the company:

Bitcoin has shown to be a reasonable conclusion, an excellent place to put some of our cash that’s not being used for daily operations…and be able to get some return on that.

The e-car maker views its remaining Bitcoin as a long-term holding:    

We do believe long-term in the value of bitcoin, so we intend to hold what we have long-term.

Kirkhorn, the self-proclaimed “Master of Coin,” also said that the company could buy more in the future.
