Why do you guys fault Elon? We hadn't seen a correction weeks now. It was a matter of time before it dropped with or without a billionaire's tweet.  Roll Eyes

He’s got over 50,000,000 followers on Twitter. The price was bobbing along fine in the mid 50k’s until he started this crusade of FUD.

Look at his tweets & replies. He’s trying to get every man & his dog to see anti bitcoin FUD. He’s a narcissistic, autistic, little cunt. I wish he’d STFU & tweet about his shit cars & pointless rockets instead.

Yes, and he's dumping the price temporary. This is your chance to buy some bitcoins cheaper. It's the way you're looking at it.

This is getting ugly, when’s it going to stop  Cry

$43k?

If that breaks

38% below ATH so $39k ?

If that breaks then we are in Proudhon territory at $24,472 or 66% below ATH and Proudhon takes the El duderino prize and we all get to bow down to Proudhon.

Last quarter Tesla sold more than $500 million worth of carbon credits.
Tesla will miss out on $240 million in revenue this year after European car giant Stellantis (a merger between Fiat Chrysler and the French-based PSA Group) revealed it would need far fewer credits to meet European Union emissions regulations than it initially thought.
This loss is assuming Tesla can’t find another customer for the carbon credits.

Enter Bitcoin miners, Elon Musk trashes Bitcoin for its energy use, at the same time promoting Dogshitcoin, helping Bitcoin price to fall. Then offers to solve the problem by offering to sell Bitcoin miners the spare carbon credits. With these, Bitcoin miners now producing a green coin, can fill OTC orders to institutional investors who can continue with plans to add Bitcoin to their balance sheets whilst meeting their Environmental, Social, and Corporate Governance (ESG) obligations.
The ESG is the single biggest barrier to entry for institutions.
Elon happy to keep a source of profit, strengthens TSLA stock.
Institutional investors happy to buy new non tainted environmentally clean bitcoin. Probably at a premium to cover miners increased costs.
Price starts rising again, everyone happy, except Proudhon of course!

I was cheering you on Farmer Bill, until you got to the point that Bitcoin miners are going to have any kind of meaningful incentive to playing  ball with carbon credit bullshit.  Sure there might be some bad faith miners that play that game, but I really doubt the vast majority of miners are going to give two shits or even less than that about bullshit ideas of carbon credit.

yeah, sure many of us realize that if BTC prices are at a premium, BTC miners probably give less than two shits about how much energy they are using, the kind of energy or how much it costs - as long as they are profitable - which seems to me that in recent times, there has been a lot of surplus in the profits of bitcoin miners.

Another thing that many of us recognize is that if (more likely when) profit margins in BTC mining turn more competitive, there are likely more incentives to search out cheaper energy sources, and BTC miners can be (and even have been) quite portable in that respect, which causes them to frequently seek out energy sources that might not otherwise be usable because of their distance from consumption sources or other inefficiencies that exist in regular markets and causing bitcoin mining to be amongst the most energy efficient of use cases, so the energy misinformation spreaders can fuck off with their opposite of true talking points that are attempting to mislead folks into nonsense theories like the one that you outlined above (no homo .. hahahahaha).

Elon must be on a rampage because i only see on Twitter: tweet not available.

He’s dedicating his Twitter profile to being anti bitcoin. Every tweet is negative towards bitcoin. He’s trying to singlehandedly destroy us.

hahahaha

good luck with that.

Of course, he is not alone.. there are plenty of other anti-bitcoin dweebs out there who spout out nonsense or otherwise engage in bitcoin naysaying, nocoiner, shitcoin pumpening and fence sitting behaviors..,. Let's see how it plays out.  The next 6 hours (for those of you who don't know how to zoom out a wee bit (not including you in this, LFC) are criticaltm.

That would be interesting, if it were to happen.

I doubt bitcoin gives any shits.. even if there may well be a short-term negative impact on BTC prices and even weak-handed peeps who decide to part their lil selfies from their bitcoin based on such manipulations and FUD... and so anyone who has fewer bitcoin when we return to $64,895 (assuming that we do at some point) based on this kind of crap deserves staying poor.

... this is what's happening musk is getting flushed out the back by the decentralised forces aligning against a malignant threat like musk, each bull run has had and slaughtered it's hero turned anti-hero, each of a larger 'import'

... interestingly musk is actually arguably an important figure on the global scale so slaughtering him, or someone of his status, is a right of passage for bitcoin moving to the global stage asset class as a decentralised force

... next time around a president or central banker or ruling regime?

Who needs enemies with friends like this: https://twitter.com/elonmusk/status/1393738154889338884?s=21

It’s becoming stranger and stranger  Roll Eyes

Regardless, the increased Bitcoin fear in WO posts strengthens my feeling that this correction is nearing its end.

Man I'm so glad he keeps blabbing, showing the world just how much of an idiot he truly is. This is great. Keep going, Elon.

"Better to stay quiet and be thought a moron, that to open your mouth and remove all doubt."

Think people just overestimate him and think of him as some kind of a god, but he's just going through the typical phases like the majority. Currently he hit the "shitcoin" phase. This will pass once he learns about lightning then he'll be back to BTC, just needs some time

Yeah, were going below $35k now. The chart in 2018 is the same like this, potentially fall to -40%. But I dont know, adoption is stronger than 3 years ago. Who knows. Smiley

Someone moved 19k+ coins to Coinbase before Elon started his FUD tweet this week so i guess he already sold and probaly buying back later.

In India and Pak we say “bandar k hath machis aajae tu wo pooray jungle ko aag laga deta hai”

That translates to “if a monkey gets his hands on a matchstick box, he will burn down the whole jungle”

That’s what literally happened in case of Elon... he got a matchstick!!!

Wait, did he really try to sell carbon credits to Bitcoin miners?

If Tesla gets paid to sell carbon credits, doesn't that make them liable for the actual emission?
Let's see how much carbon credit costs: Opisnet:
Quote
The auction settled at $17.80/mt
Let's assume this is a reasonable estimate for the price. If Tesla sold more than half a billion dollars worth of credits, that means Tesla "covered" 28 million tonnes of emissions in just 3 months. Tesla only sold 185,000 cars during this time. Does that mean they can sell 150 tonnes of carbon credits for each car they sell? Let's assume their average car drives 250,000 km during it's lifetime, that makes 600 grams CO2 per km, which is about 5 times the average emission of new cars in Europe.

So: is my math wrong? Or is Tesla liable for much more emissions than even the most inefficient gas cars or all of Bitcoin mining?

Those are all possible, but I have a hard time giving very great odds to something like $24,472 playing out by June 21.. so sure we could have some ups and downs along the way and gosh grinding down to $24,472 in a bit over a month would be painful and likely shake a lot of weak hands. 

Just assuming that something like that could happen, I am not even sure if we would be out of the bullrun, and it could well set us up for a 2013 like scenario of a double top.  Not saying that the top of $64,895 might not already be in, but surely, there seem to be quite a few different scenarios of getting to new ATHs of supra $64,895 even if it were to take a few months to get back to that point.. even 5-6 months or so which would kind of mimic the 2013 price dynamics situation in terms of severity of dump and getting stuck lower and getting the reversal back up...   

But, yeah, we have a lot of this time is different, but still no one should really be able to deny that there remains a lot of froth to be shaken out - even though the shaking out can happen in a variety of ways, one of the easier ways might be to shake out by dumping everything "crypto" related rather than attempting to figure out which coin or project might have more froth than another.. and surely we could get some potential attacks on some of the chains too in order to exacerbate where ever we might be at this time. .but then also.. the bottom of $45,127 (as I type) could be in.. so there are a lot of scenarios, and I would not proclaim to know much of anything beyond 50/50 and even appreciating that there currently may well be down momentum, but we know that even existing states of down momentum can end up stopping at any time, whether there is a final wick or not.

Yeah.. but we are not in 2018 right now... where did you get that?

Your using a 3 year fractal or whatever the fuck you are doing is out of touch with dominant and credible BTC price prediction models..

So, if you can explain ur lil selfie, why you are using 3 years as your reference then maybe whatever you are suggesting might play out more convincingly.. but I am having a hard time with it, as you have framed our currently seeming price predicament.

I am not even saying that 40% plus of a correction is not off the table because we are already at 30%, but still that needs to be considered within the right framework, no?

Thanks for your input, I postulated this idea with the intent of it being trashed.

Personally, I'm not on board with the (hidden) agenda that is being promoted as climate change, the crap about bitcoin mining and energy use that has been pushed into the consciousness of the general public through the MSM has been incessant. However I do know that potential institutional investors experience great difficulties getting Bitcoin onto their balance sheets in a squeaky clean way due to their legal departments insistence on adhering to the corporate governance stuff.
