As an answer to this, Musk said that in the situation when fiat currency has a negative real interest, only a fool wouldn’t look elsewhere”. Afterwards, he added "Bitcoin is almost as bs (balance sheet) as fiat money. The keyword is almost".
Tesla's CEO mentioned that he's not an investor but an engineer. He disclosed that his BTC holdings are 0.25 BTC which a friend had sent to him a long time ago. This is all crypto holdings he owns.
To be clear, I am *not* an investor, I am an engineer. I don’t even own any publicly traded stock besides Tesla.— Elon Musk (@elonmusk) February 19, 2021
