Musk assures no Dogecoin sold
Elon Musk’s Tesla made headlines after shedding 75% of its Bitcoin holdings, as per the Q2 Earnings Report. The electric car manufacturer cited concerns of operating profit and profitability for the Bitcoin sale. Though Tesla has not revealed its Dogecoin holdings yet, Musk affirmed DOGE holders that the car company has not sold its meme coins.
Tesla started accepting Dogecoin in exchange for a select range of its merchandise, therefore it is a known fact that the electric car company holds DOGE. Musk’s announcement is an important one for Dogecoin holders for two key reasons.
While Bitcoin is still reeling from the $966 million sale by Tesla, the European Central Bank announced a 0.50% rate hike leading to further losses. Bitcoin is now battling bears to recoup its losses and hold its ground at the $23,000 level.
Dogecoin price was also hit by the ECB announcement and suffered a nearly 6% decline over the past 24 hours. However, DOGE holders expect a recovery in the meme coin.
In the earnings conference call, Musk explained why the firm sold Bitcoin and said,
We have not sold any of our Dogecoin.
