Ricardo Salinas Pliego, a Mexican billionaire, borrowed from Elon Musk’s approach by adding bitcoin tags to his twitter profile. His profile is now “Mexican businessman” bticoin. Ricardo Salinas prigo added bitcoin to twitter. Last year, he revealed that 10% of his liquid assets are bitcoin. Around this time, he released a video showing piles of Venezuelan Bolivar coins being thrown into the trash can, titled “this is inflationary confiscation.” This year, a large number of celebrities have come forward to support the number one cryptocurrency. Although musk is arguably the most recognized figure, there are many other celebrities who have joined the ranks. Russel okung, a Carolina Panthers player who announced his bitcoin holdings at the end of January, tweeted about the benefits of bitcoin ownership. He also added bitcoin tags to his twitter profile and urged his fans to do the same. Several celebrities have followed suit, including singer songwriter joy villa, YouTube user sir. Beast, Sofia Hayat, and reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian. But the third richest man in Mexico is now coming to join the movement. Ricardo Salinas prigo is 171st on the Forbes Global rich list. His net worth is estimated at $13.7 billion. Puligor is the founder and chairman of Grupo Salinas. The group’s business covers telecommunications, media, financial services and retail. Despite his wealth, Mr. puligor is worried about reckless monetary policy. Tesla announced last week its acquisition of $1.5 billion worth of bitcoin. Prior to the announcement, Tesla’s CEO actively tweeted about dogcoin and bitcoin. When he added a bitcoin tag to twitter, the price of bitcoin rose nearly 8000 dollars. The move, known as the “Elon candle,” has been criticized by several observers, including Dr. Nouriel Roubini, who accused musk of market manipulation. Mr. Musk’s former sec branch head, Doug Davison, also believes that Mr. Musk’s actions deserve sec action. “Given the attention paid to Tesla’s CEO tweets, bitcoin pricing, and recent dramatic market volatility, it’s not surprising that the SEC questions the facts and circumstances.” Musk is no stranger to the SEC’s sanctions. They had previously sued him, saying he had violated securities laws by tweeting about the privatization of Tesla. Since then, he has deleted all references to bitcoin on twitter.
