Tesla CEO Elon Musk on Wednesday said he owns Bitcoin, Dogecoin and Ethereum. Musk added that Tesla and SpaceX also own Bitcoin. Musk was speaking at the Bitcoin event “The B Word”, along with Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey, and Ark Invest CEO Cathie Wood.
“I might pump, but I don’t dump,” Musk said. “Outside of Tesla and SpaceX stock, it’s my largest holding,” Musk said.
“If the price of bitcoin goes down I lose money. I might pump but I don’t dump,” Musk said. “I definitely do not believe in getting the price high and selling or anything like that. I would like to see bitcoin succeed.”

Elon Musk also added, “I am not selling any bitcoin, nor SpaceX or Tesla.”
