Many people on Twitter see Musk’s tweet and profile change as a massive endorsement for bitcoin. Morgan Creek Digital partner Anthony Pompliano commented:

Elon Musk, one of the richest men in the world and the greatest innovator of our time, has only one word in his Twitter bio: bitcoin … Tesla and Spacex adding bitcoin to their balance sheet is now inevitable.

The Tesla CEO overtook Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos as the world’s richest man early this month but has since fallen back to second place, according to Forbes’ real-time billionaire list. Another billionaire, Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey also has his Twitter profile set to just #bitcoin.

Musk has been tweeting about bitcoin regularly. He had repeatedly said before that he only owns 0.25 BTC which was gifted to him by a friend. In December, he pondered about putting some of Tesla’s treasury into bitcoin.

He has also been tweeting plenty about dogecoin and recently participated in a doge pump. His Twitter profile used to display: “Former CEO of Dogecoin.”
