crypto news, bitcoin price

Bitcoin price crashed -13% to $50k after Elon made a statement through TSLA the company would not be accepting Bitcoin anymore due to the ‘environmental impact’ of mining. ETH is -6% to $3900 as it continues to be a stronger performer vs. BTC. Movers are AAVE +17%, POWR +16%, YFI -24%, YFII -22%, RLC -20%, GTO DENT STORJ -16%, OGN OMG DOCK -14%, and rest follow lower.

Crypto Twitter is having a field day, questioning Elon’s intelligence as any competent engineer would conduct research before diving into a subject, let alone spending $1.5B in the process. FT (Finance-Twitter) is also having a field day using this flip-flop as fodder for TSLA attacks while also grabbing the popcorn to see how Cathie Wood will react.
