Monday’s Factors and Events
In a discussion on the popular Clubhouse audio app late Sunday, Musk confirmed he was a supporter of bitcoin.
“I’ve got to watch what I say here because some of these things can really move the market,” Musk said. “Many friends of mine have tried to convince me to get involved in bitcoin for a long time.”
Musk said he once ate a slice of “bitcoin cake” given to him by a friend in 2013, and that he “clearly … should have at least bought some bitcoin eight years ago — talk about being late to the party.”
