Crypto News: February 20th, 2019

Elon Musk and Bitcoin

The crypto news that's been receiving the most buzz this morning has to do with Tesla's CEO Elon Musk. Musk held a podcast interview with advisory services firm ARK Invest's and called Bitcoin's structure "quite brilliant." The tech entrepreneur believes that digital currency is a far better transfer of value than paper money. In the past, Musk has been pegged as the creator of Bitcoin. With his background, it could be quite possible, but the tech entrepreneur has since shut down those rumors. Shame, considering we still don't know who Satoshi Nakamoto really is. In February of last year, Musk tweeted that he owned zero cryptocurrency, which was a surprise to most. Despite the major boost Bitcoin got from one of the world's top tech visionaries in today's crypto news, the digital currency is still trading red. >> Cryptocurrency Bull Run: An Improving Economy Encourages Gains
