Mexican billionaire emulates Tesla boss Elon Musk

After Elon Musk recently caused a sensation on Twitter when he added a Bitcoin emoji to his profile description, the third richest man in Mexico is now following suit.

Ricardo Salinas Pliego is an entrepreneur and multi-billionaire from Mexico

On Twitter, the third richest man in Mexico added a “#Bitcoin” with an emoji to his Twitter bio over the weekend . Salina’s enthusiasm for cryptocurrency is no coincidence. In November of last year, Salinas also revealed on Twitter that 10 percent of its liquid portfolio was invested in Bitcoin. He said:

A lot of people ask me if I have bitcoins: yes, I invested 10% of my liquid portfolio.

With the declaration of loyalty to Bitcoin, Salinas draws level with Elon Musk on Twitter . The Tesla founder and richest person in the world allegedly caused the Bitcoin price to pump recently when he added #Bitcoin with the associated Bitcoin emoji to his profile description on Twitter. However, Salinas is ahead of its American role model in that the Mexican is already invested in Bitcoin, while the rumor mill is still simmering at Musk.

Elon Musk protegiert Dogecoin

While the first musky Bitcoin investment is expected with high tension, the multi-billionaire on Twitter ensures a good mood. There the Tesla founder regularly posts memes about the fun currency “Dogecoin”. This has the consequence that the price of the “Memecoin” shoots up. The price at the time of going to press is $ 0.0765.

Almost two weeks ago, the sudden rise in the price of Dogecoin caused a sensation. Shortly before, the price pumps of the GameStop share were omnipresent in the media through the r / wallstreetbets. Therefore, quite a few suspected that the same Reddit community could be behind the price explosion of the Dogecoin. Elon Musk’s tweets now do the rest.
