In 2021, the tech billionaire sold $22 billion in Tesla shares, while this year, in April and August, the new Twitter CEO liquidated shares worth $8 billion and $7 billion, respectively.
Meanwhile, according to his petition with the U.S. According to the Securities and Exchange Commission, Elon Musk reportedly sold another 19.5 million Tesla shares for $3.95 billion on Tuesday.
Following this occurrence, at the time of writing, after peaking at $194.90 per unit, the price of the electric vehicle company’s shares was $191.30, a 2.93% loss.
Elon Musk Remains Silent on Crypto Plans
Following this move, some are asking if SpaceX CEO Elon Musk would soon sell his crypto assets, given that he has previously done so.
Musk’s Tesla sold 75% of its Bitcoin holdings in July of this year, which startled many people who assumed the entrepreneur was serious about keeping his crypto balance in his portfolio.
However, as of now, Elon Musk has remained silent on his opinions on cryptocurrencies, without even mentioning his favorite asset, Dogecoin.
Furthermore, there are unsubstantiated rumors that Twitter has ceased all crypto-related initiatives. When this piece was written, the social media business had not reacted to inquiries regarding the situation.
