Bitter Twitter 😞 Forever Musk 🤤
Does Elon Musk know what to do with Twitter? Twitter to enable cryptocurrency and stock trading on its platform. Can it become a Super app? Musk launches new AI company X.AI. Tesla's $500M mistake.
Hello, y'all. Papa Elon likes our dispatches. He really does. For reals👇
This is The Token Dispatch; show us some love on telegram 🤟
Twitter, Inc. is now called X Corp.
Twitter is not a public company anymore, so it does not have to report updates like name changes to the SEC.
The new name was spotted in an April 4 document related to far-right activist Laura Loomer’s lawsuit against Twitter and Facebook.
Musk's next step towards building his super app? Maybe.
Twitter has partnered with eToro to enable cryptocurrency and stock trading on its platform.
The partnership will allow Twitter users in the UK to access eToro's trading platform directly from the social media site.
The move is part of Twitter's efforts to diversify its revenue streams beyond advertising.
The company has been exploring ways to monetise its platform, including the introduction of a subscription-based service called Twitter Blue.

TTD Mistake 💀
Tesla's $500 Million mistake
Tesla's Bitcoin affair
Purchase: $1.5 Billion Bitcoin in February 2021. Average price $36,000.
High: Bitcoin hits record high of $69,000 in November 2021.
Dump 1 : ~$272 Million holdings to boost its Q1 2021. Profit ~$101 Million.
Dump 2: ~$936 Million holdings in Q2 2022, 75% reserves. Profit ~$64 Million.
Profit: ~$165 Million from two separate Bitcoin sales.
Loss: Unrealised loss of ~$56.6 Million on Bitcoin holdings as of April 14, 2023
Holdings: 10,725 BTC worth ~$330 Million. 15% below February 2021 purchase.
Mark to Market: Net profit to date ~$108 Million.
Verdict: Bitcoin price has gone up more than 50% since ~$1 Billion Bitcoin sale in July 2022 (Q2 2022). Tesla would have made ~$500 Million if it had waited until today to sell.
