11:36Elon Musk Has Got Bitcoin Profile Picture on Twitter Again
Tesla CEO Elon Musk now has a new profile picture on his Twitter account – the anime Japanese girl in a dress with a Bitcoin logo on it.
Is he trying to impact the market again?
Musk brings back his old Bitcoin profile pic
The billionaire did it shortly after Tesla announced its massive BTC purchase worth $1.5 billion and later spreading the word about starting to accept Bitcoin as payment for Tesla cars.
Back then, Musk tagged Bitcoin in his Twitter bioi section, thus pushing the flagship crypto’s price from the $32,000 level to over $37,000 line.
Back in 2018, the same profile picture got Elon Musk’s Twitter account temporarily blocked.
Bitcoiners fall out with Elon
Some in the community, such as Bitcoin influencer Anthony Pompliano, believe that Musk prepares to launch green Bitcoin mining business in the near future and so far is just pulling focus on the problem for the community.
He seems to have merely brought the environmental concerns regarding Bitcoin to the boiling point as governments after that started the same narrative about the necessity to reduce the global and local CO2 emissions, such as EU and China.
The latter is now clamping down on Bitcoin mining and other high energy-consuming projects, making crypto miners leave for more friendly jurisdictions with cheaper energy.
Iran has also suspended Bitcoin mining for the summer season after massive power cuts in the country.

This made BTC drop another three percent, again showing that the market is particularly vulnerable to Elon Musk’s tweets.
