Dave Portnoy trolled Musk on Twitter, saying that he put in the cue ball, hoisted it, pumping the price into heaven and leaking it.
To which Musk replied that he did not sell his bitcoins, while Tesla sold 10% of his bitcoins.
No, you do not. I have not sold any of my Bitcoin. Tesla sold 10% of its holdings essentially to prove liquidity of Bitcoin as an alternative to holding cash on balance sheet.

By some estimates, Tesla made about $ 100 million from the cue ball in a month, more than ever selling its cars.
