Fundamental Analysis Of The Situation

Taking itself too seriously, the crypto market went complete Sherlock Holmes on the Tesla circumstance. And thank God they did, since the experts in fact made some remarkable and really fascinating points. For example:

  • Riding for Elon Musk, Binance’s CZ talked numbers – “Up to $100 billion of btc get traded every day. Someone selling $1 billion is a drop in the ocean.” Interesting and greater than anticipated numbers. And CZ must learn about this subject in specific.
  • The Coin Bureau man minimized the circumstance and its impact  – ”It was just a matter of time that we would see this. The market has actually brushed it off however.”
  • Professional trader MisterSpread stated the obvious in a funny way – “Seriously now, thank you Elon for the big stress test you made Bitcoin go through and showed the whole world that Bitcoin is money after Tesla bought and sold billions worth of it.”
  • For his part, Bitcoin Lebowsky stated the facts– “The fact that Bitcoin is still at 23k after months of miners selling, Tesla selling, the Macro disaster and of course all of the ongoing FUD, is nothing short of remarkable.” 
  • Trader and Arca’s CIO, Jeff Dorman simplified – “If you’ve ever wondered whether or not trading bots control digital asset trading…keep in mind the entire digital asset market just fell on news that one company (Tesla) sold one asset (BTC) 1-3 months ago. ”
  • Swans’ Steven Lubka sees the bright side – “The Tesla news is bullish, now Elon can’t sell his Bitcoin again and it’s been purchased in the 20s by more reliable and less erratic actors.”

That’s among the crucial takeaways, Tesla is no longer in a position of power and Elon cannot quickly control bitcoin’s cost any longer. Also, the network is liquid and can deal with tension extremely. And it’s not managed by trading bots. We discovered all of that and more from a basic trade.
