Bitcoin’s recent volatility may have been influenced by Tesla CEO Elon Musk’s latest revelation that he intends to sell 10 percent of his Tesla holdings. Bitcoin soared over 4 percent over the weekend, rising from $62,941 to $65,512 in just two hours, indicating that the crypto asset is still volatile. Bitcoin’s market capitalization was already valued more than the combined value of numerous fiat currencies at the time of writing.
In February, the cryptocurrency asset caused the Russian ruble to plummet, most likely as a result of Tesla disclosing that it had acquired a total of $1.5 billion in bitcoin.
