Stating that Bitcoin investors should be careful, Gates said, “If you have less money than Elon, you should be careful.”

Elon Musk on Bitcoin
Despite his investment of $ 1.5 billion, Musk pointed out that there is excessive pricing in Bitcoin. Gates, Warren Buffett and the US Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen were among those who were critical of Bitcoin lately.
Billionaire investor Warren Buffett emphasized that cryptocurrencies do not have any value and do not produce anything.
On the subject of Bitcoin, Yellen used the expressions including “Bitcoin is very speculative, people should be careful. The cryptocurrency, which is often used for illegal finance, is inefficient.”
Meanwhile, Bitcoin prices rose rapidly, especially with Tesla’s $ 1.5 billion Bitcoin investment, of which Musk was the boss, and reached the $ 59,000 limit.
Elon Musk had already changed his Twitter bio to #bitcoin and it brought a dramatic increase in the value of the leading cryptocurrency.
Musk’s choice of Bitcoin investment was perceived as a sign of a new era due to the increasing interest of companies in the crypto money market, thus stimulating the demand in the crypto money market.
In the following days, Musk drew attention to the excessive pricing in Bitcoin this time, and the prices of Bitcoin were pulled below $ 50,000.
