Elon Response To Pump and Dump Comment

Famous investor Dave Portnoy made a pump & dump comment on Elon Musk after learning that Tesla was selling Bitcoin.

Portnoy said:

Do I understand the situation correctly? First Elon Musk buy Bitcoin, pumps up the PRICE and then he dump Bicoin to makes a fortune.

Elon Replied:

No, you do not.  I’ve never sold my Bitcoin. Tesla sold 10% of it to prove that Bitcoin liquidity could be an alternative to holding cash on the company balance sheet.
