Elon Musk has taken to Twitter once more to mention blockchain related currencies. This time, the Tesla founder has tweeted with an air of mystery regarding Bitcoin

On Monday evening, Musk uploaded the cryptic Tweet which included an anime character representing Bitcoin:

The anime Bitcoin girl comes as the courtesy of the website Cryptocurrency Girls, which has drawn anime representations in different colors to symbolize the different characteristics of the leading cryptocurrency tokens.

The post received an inordinate amount of attention, with cryptocurrency users showing their excitement at the possible suggestion that Musk is now advocating cryptocurrency.

The tweet caused such a stir that Twitter thought that the tech icon might have been hacked and suspended his account as a result, according to Musk:

At the beginning of this year, Musk confirmed that he was holding very little Bitcoin. He revealed that he owned  “zero cryptocurrency, apart from .25 BTC” after a number of fake Twitter accounts posing as recognized entrepreneurial tech and business figures, including Musk and US president Donald Trump, in attempts to scam users out of their cryptocurrency. At the time. At the time of writing, his Bitcoin holdings had made up $2351.25 USD; a sliver of his $21,4 billion USD net worth. Musk had also not revealed any plans to make that sliver any bigger.

If Musk is, in fact, looking to invest into Bitcoin, as well as promote the cryptocurrency concept, then a shift might be on its way to shake the bear run and head for the bull.
