SkyBridge Capital founder Anthony Scaramucci has dropped a bombshell on Twitter, claiming that Elon Musk’s aerospace manufacturer SpaceX now owns Bitcoin on its balance sheet:
Elon Musk didn’t stop with Tesla. I understand that SpaceX owns Bitcoin on its balance sheet.
Scaramucci claims that the second-richest person on the planet currency has $5 billion worth of Bitcoin, which includes his personal holdings.
We can only speculate about whether or not SpaceX actually got into Bitcoin since it’s not a public company, meaning that it wouldn’t report its purchase to the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.
As reported by Cryptoreportage, Tesla disclosed $1.5 billion worth of Bitcoin on its balance sheet in an SEC filing dated Feb. 8. Its massive BTC purchase is already more profitable than the e-car giant’s whole year of car sales.
Scaramucci expects Bitcoin to topple the $100,000 mark by the end of 2021.
