Elon Musk is a veteran BTC commentator, and he’s also known to comment on some other cryptocurrencies, though it’s been a while since he last tweeted something about BTC. Today, at the peak of a calm weekend, Elon Musk dropped the Bitcoin bomb, tweeting: “Bitcoin is my safe word”.
Immediately after his tweet, bitcoin’s price spiked almost $200 to $23,800, which was the former all-time high (ATH) set on Thursday.
Twenty minutes later, and Musk tweeted a reply to his original tweet, stating that he was “Just kidding, who needs a safe word anyway!?”
Bitcoin has become a part of the mainstream media. It might have been unusual to tweet and discuss bitcoin a few years back, throughout the past few months, but now we see a growing number of some of the most influential figures and companies talk about it.

In January, Bitcoin Wasn’t His Safe Word

Elon Musk’s tweets are famous for their vagueness, whether he tweets about TSLA shares too expensive, Dogecoin, or SpaceX.
However, this current tweet is somehow related to his previous tweet when he was also speaking of the primary cryptocurrency.
Ten days into the current year of 2020, Elon Musk shared his opinion about bitcoin, tweeting: “Bitcoin is not my safe word.” If you had noticed the date today, it is precisely ten days before the end of 2020. Back in January, BTC was trading around $8,000. As of writing this second tweet, BTC is trading at $23,800, a day after setting its all-time high level of $24,200.
As always, his tweet leaves about 40 million Twitter followers asking questions, and it’s undoubtedly a win for cryptocurrency, especially Bitcoin to be in front of such a massive number of audience once again.
It’s also amazing to wait and see where the prices will take from here and if the cryptocurrency will go through another significant leg up.
