When fans started reacting to this after Elon Musk’s tweet that he bought the football team, Musk said that he was joking. His tweet also got a response from Michael Saylor, who recently said that he will no longer serve as the CEO of MicroStrategy. When asked to buy Manchester United football team, Michael advised Elon Musk to buy bitcoin. Michael told Musk that he should buy some bitcoin.
Michael Saylor recently announced that he was leaving the position of MicroStrategy CEO. He is now going to be replaced by the company’s top executive Phong Le. At the same time, Michael went down the notch and talked about taking over as the executive chairman. Michael Saylor has been the company’s CEO for the past three decades. During this time he has also seen many ups and downs with the company.

At the same time Tesla was also announced to accept bitcoin as a payment option. Then in April, bitcoin was discontinued as a payment option, due to the bad effects on the environment due to bitcoin mining. The company still had a large bitcoin holding by 2022, but Tesla sold 75% of its bitcoin holding in the second quarter. The company bought bitcoin at $31,620 but sold it for $29,000.
Elon Musk announced in March that he would not sell his crypto reserves. Musk has holdings of bitcoin, ethereum and dodgecoin in crypto treasuries.

The price of bitcoin in India stood at Rs 18.67 lakh till the time of writing the news, which is a drop of 2% in the last 24 hours.
