Bitcoin (BTC) Tanks | $126bn (£100bn) Wiped Off Tesla’s Value | Elon Musk’s $44bn Twitter Acquisition | Should Investors Be Concerned?

1 min read

The answer to this question can be linked with Elon’s entire wealth being connected with the market capitalization of Tesla Motors and its subsidiaries. Musk has pledged his shares to fund this acquisition, and BTC has no direct relation to this newly acquired stake of, Elon.

Still, at the same time, the world knows Tesla made a $1.5 billion investment into Bitcoin back in February 2021, which could amount to a similar value as it was repurchased then. While this value is barely 0.2% of the total BTC market value, in case of fresh funds requirement, Musk can quickly liquidate this investment, causing widespread panic for BTC investors.

Bitcoin Price Analysis 

Fundamentally BTC has no value apart from its storage value and widespread user base. Still backed by mining operations that heavily rely on renewable energy, BTC surely cannot remain the top cryptocurrency when others are trying to find ways to reduce energy consumption by overlooking the validation process accepted by its blockchain. Based on the Bitcoin prediction, the price trend could dip further to new levels in the coming days if the selling sentiment remains heavy on the investors.

The Bitcoin price trend has once again become negative as it failed to respect the trendline that was being formed for the last three months. BTC tanking from $48,000 to $37,000 twice within a year indicates negative sentiment. Investors are hoping for a positive breakout, but BTC is trading below its important moving averages, and failure to take support from the immediate level of $37,500 would lead to further loss of value, as the next historical trend support lies at $33,700.

RSI has moved down from close to overbought zones at the beginning of April 2022 to negative with a current RSI of 40. Transaction volumes have taken surprise jumps, but such a trend will continue for some time. On the flip side, a bounce back from $30,000 can be expected since investors would be looking to buy more Bitcoins at a discounted price.

$126bn Wiped Off Tesla’s Value

Investors have wiped $126bn (£100bn) off Tesla’s value amid concern that Elon Musk may have to sell shares in the electric carmaker to fund his personal contribution to his $44bn acquisition of Twitter.

Tesla stock has been targeted despite the company not being involved in the bid but Musk, its chief executive and largest shareholder, is part-funding the Twitter deal with $21bn of his own equity and a further $12.5bn loan secured against his Tesla stake.

The 12.2% drop in Tesla’s shares on Tuesday equated to a $21bn drop in the value of his Tesla stake, equal to the cash stake he committed to the Twitter deal.
