Tesla boss Elon Musk has often caused a sensation in the past with his tweets. In the past few weeks, he has provided a real roller coaster ride on the Cyberdevise with his Twitter posts on Dogecoin. Now he has also made another cryptocurrency a big plus - this time by mistake.

In the past few weeks, the Tesla boss has again provided some course roller coasters. Most recently, however, it was not about his own company, but among other things about the crypto fun currency. In a multitude of tweets and memes, the entrepreneur revealed himself to be a great fan of the coin and sent the Internet currency to lofty heights. The Dogecoin hit an all-time high of $ 0.08495 on February 8th. Since the beginning of the year, this corresponds to a phenomenal price increase of over 1,700 percent. But only shortly after Musk catapulted the cyber currency to the record with his tweets, he again caused the currency to collapse with a Twitter post.
One of the first European Starlink users reports how good Elon Musk's satellite internet really is.
Starlink is now accepting pre-orders for its satellite internet from Germany and plans to make its service available in Germany by mid to late 2021. For a good three months now, the space company SpaceX's project has been in the “better than nothing” test, in which around 10,000 customers from the north of the USA, southern Canada and Great Britain were able to try out the service.
The oldest crypto currency in the world,, has already experienced a lot of tailwind from the Tesla CEO this year. The vehicle manufacturer recently announced that it had invested 1.5 billion US dollars in the original cyber currency, which in turn drove the Bitcoin rate to a new record that has since been broken again.
Now a new crypto currency joins the ranks of the Musk profiteers, only this time (supposedly) it happened unintentionally. What happened? In a Twitter exchange with user Mansour Shahrokh, this Musk suggested setting up his own cryptocurrency called ElonCoin, to which he replied that he would only do this if necessary.
This in turn picked up Twitter member CZ Binance and suggested the name MarsCoin. Musk seemed to like the idea and replied, "There will be a MarsCoin for sure."
There will definitely be a MarsCoin!- Elon Musk (@elonmusk)
What he may not have been aware of is the fact that there is already a cryptocurrency called MarsCoin, which promptly jumped on Twitter on February 16 with a rapid price jump responded to a new all-time high of $ 2.50. The cyber currency itself is still very young and has only been tradable on CoinMarketCap since January 18, 2021. From the then opening price of 0.1705 US dollars, the jump to the record high corresponds to an increase of 1,366 percent.
