Musk's "the first leader in the currency circle"
Musk can be called "the first king of goods in the currency circle."He has expressed his support for Bitcoin on Twitter more than once, and every public support will drive Bitcoin's rise.He used his own power to send Bitcoin and Dogecoin to historical highs.
Tesla's documents submitted to the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) on February 2th local time show that Tesla has invested a total of 8 billion U.S. dollars in Bitcoin and stated that it may acquire and hold digital assets for a long time. It is expected to accept Bitcoin as a payment method in the near future.Subsequently, Bitcoin pulled up in the short-term and quickly broke through the $15 mark, and maintained its upward momentum all the way, approaching the historical high of $4.As of press time, the price of Bitcoin is 5 USD per coin.
In addition to Bitcoin, Musk has recently begun to publicly express support for the niche digital currency-Dogecoin.According to the Southern Metropolis Daily, after Musk returned to Twitter, he published a series of content promoting Dogecoin.Since then, the price of Dogecoin began to rise and hit a record high on February 2.As of press time, Dogecoin is $7 per coin
Tesla's quality problems: abnormal acceleration, battery fire
However, although Musk has had a lot of "playing with coins" recently, his main business "new energy vehicles" is in trouble.
On February 2, US local time, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) issued a new recall announcement on its website.The announcement shows that Tesla has applied for a “voluntary” recall of 2 Model S and Model X vehicles, on the grounds that the embedded multimedia memory card failures on these vehicles caused the central control screen to not work normally.According to media reports, this recall has become the largest failure recall since Tesla was founded.
In addition, the German Ministry of Transport (KBA) recently released data showing that in January this year, Tesla withdrew from the list of Germany's leading electric car brands, and the rising Volkswagen occupied the first and second places.
It is worth mentioning that just a year ago, Tesla was jointly interviewed by the five Chinese departments due to quality issues.The content is mainly to interview consumers about abnormal acceleration ("suddenly out of control", "automatic acceleration", "brake failure"), battery fire, and vehicle remote upgrade (OTA) freezes, etc., and require Tesla to strictly abide by China Laws and regulations, strengthen internal management, implement the main responsibility of corporate quality and safety, effectively maintain social public safety, and effectively protect the legitimate rights and interests of consumers.
Previously, for spontaneous combustion incidents, automatic driving out of control accidents, and the recent charging failure storm, Tesla officials did not give a reasonable explanation for the vehicle itself, and its response and response methods were mainly "sweeping the pot". , Believes that the cause of the accident is improper use by the car owner, and "should dump" the charging failure to the State Grid, claiming that the vehicle inverter is damaged because the current of the State Grid is too large and the instantaneous current overload is caused.It was quickly "faced" by the State Grid.

According to industry insiders, Tesla officials have never actively addressed the causes of frequent burning or explosion, and have always insisted that it has considerable safety, and does not fundamentally modify the battery assembly and control strategy, which means burning or explosion Accidents may continue to occur.
Tesla's sales in China decline
Also cleared by the world's largest hedge fund
According to comprehensive reports from many media,Tesla1月在国内市场共交付15484辆新车。虽然同比增长，但相较于去年12月份的23804辆减少了8320辆，环比暴跌35%。
Among them, the star model Mdoel 3 delivered 1 in January, a 13843% drop from the previous month, which undoubtedly reflects the slowdown in the growth of the Tesla brand in China.
Some analysts believe that this is mainly due to the large export volume and the slow growth of Model Y's production capacity.Some analysts also believe that it may be affected by the shortage of full chips, and may even be related to a series of "negative" news that Tesla has recently encountered.In fact, Wall Street has never stopped controversy about Tesla.The data on Tesla's positions disclosed by some institutions a few days ago has also been polarized.
On February 2, the 12F report submitted by the world's largest hedge fund Bridgewater Fund to the US Securities Regulatory Commission showed that Tesla cleared its stock in the fourth quarter of last year and sold a total of 13 shares.
