Elon Musk’s Tesla proved to be the supreme paper fingers following the electric powered car maker bought 75% of its Bitcoin (BTC) holdings in the 2nd quarter. I say, fantastic riddance. The cult of persona is not good for Bitcoin, and neither is a technologist who treats the asset as his plaything. As significantly as we are conscious, Musk hasn’t bought any of his personalized Bitcoin stash and Tesla continue to has an approximated 10,800 BTC on its publications. Nevertheless, the a lot less we have to listen to about Musk and Bitcoin, the far better.
In this week’s Crypto Biz, we chronicle Tesla’s sale of BTC, KuCoin’s fight versus faux information and Cathie Wood’s sale of Coinbase inventory.

To establish a crypto space with considerably less FUD, #KuCoin is heading to launch an Anti-FUD Fund.

Cathie Wood’s ARK Expense Management seems to be distancing by itself from Coinbase amid allegations that the cryptocurrency exchange was included in insider investing.

The cult of temperament surrounding its founders established an picture of a enterprise that could do no wrong. Then, it all arrived crashing down.
