SpaceX, the aerospace firm led by Elon Musk, reportedly has divested all of its bitcoin holdings, which were worth around $373 million which it had acquired between 2021 and 2022. This move coincides with a period of cryptocurrency market fragility, according to media reports.
Within a span of 30 minutes, the sale of SpaceX's bitcoin assets resulted in the liquidation of approximately $800 million worth of significant cryptocurrency positions. While the exact causal link between this sale and the subsequent liquidations remains uncertain, the timing has given rise to speculations.
Although the reason behind the SpaceX decision to liquidate its bitcoin reserves remain uncertain and the company had not made any statements yet. There are possibilities that the sell odd is unrelated to bitcoin underlying fundamentals.
However, the report added downward pressure on bitcoin’s price amidst the ongoing cryptocurrency bear market. The brief recovery above $28,000 was abruptly halted due to the liquidations.
