Bitcoin hits 3-month low and then Musk tweets rallies

On a volatile Monday session, Bitcoin recovered from the low of three months and saw that investors initially sold and purchased cryptocurrencies after tweets by Tesla's boss Elon Musk about the Bitcoin holdings of carmakers.

Musk said in his last tweet "Tesla won't release bitcoin." This apparent clarification came after weekend tweets indicating that Tesla considered some of its vast properties, or may have even sold them.

Musk wrote in response: "Indeed."

It was unclear if he confirmed sales or if he just referred until his explanation in Monday's post since he had faced criticism.

Some are starting to call time on a crazy trip to an asset class that this year rose by over a hundred times, more than four times, and Bitcoin gained about 45 percent.
