On February 20, the Tesla and SpaceX entrepreneur wrote a seemingly innocuous comment on Twitter that bitcoin prices “do seem high”.  Two days later, the price of Bitcoin dropped by more than $3,000 within 5 minutes – shortly after the opening of the US stock exchange. The decline plunged as much as 17% within 24 hours.
