Crypto Weekly Roundup: Elon Doesn’t Dump, He Pumps

This week was defined by two important events:

  • The B Word

Let’s see what happened in both of them.

The B Word

Firstly, let’s look at The B Word talk, which was headlined by a discussion between Tesla technoking Elon Musk, Ark Invest CEO Cathie Wood, and Twitter & Square Founder Jack Dorsey — who was making his best Scott Ian impression.

Here are some interesting talking points from the conference:

  • If bitcoin mining completely embraces renewable energy, Tesla will accept bitcoin for transactions once again.

Best Quote

Elon Musk: “If the price of bitcoin goes down I lose money. I might pump but I don’t dump. I definitely do not believe in getting the price high and selling or anything like that. I would like to see bitcoin succeed.”

The ETHCC Conference

Along with The B Word, the ETHCC conference was also going on with Lord Vitalik Buterin himself headlining the event.

Let’s skim through the main things that he said:

  • Etheruem’s overlord urged the community to innovate and think beyond the world of decentralized finance (DeFi).

Best Quote

Vitalik Buterin: “Maybe a few years from now we’ll have a lot of really exciting things […] that are just providing all kinds of very diverse and real value to all kinds of people, not just within the Ethereum ecosystem but also going far beyond it as well.”

In Closing

So there you go!

If you haven’t watched these talks, then I suggest you go on Youtube and do it at once.

Oh, and before I go, do you like Bitcoin? Do you like free Bitcoin? I sure do.
