Zenbini argued that Musk’s taking a personal stance on Bitcoin, bidding up the price and then saying Tesla had invested in it, was also a market-disrupting crime.The SEC should monitor manipulation of asset prices by market influencers.
Earlier this month, Tesla bought $1.5 billion worth of bitcoin, and previously announced that it would accept bitcoin for payment.Bitcoin soared as high as $48,000 as a result.

Tesla will have to recall about 12,300 Model X cars worldwide, German auto authority says
On February 12, the German Automotive Authority (KBA) said on its website that Tesla had to recall about 12,300 Model X cars globally due to body molding problems.
KBA said the vehicles involved in the recall include Model X vehicles manufactured between 2015 and 2016, which are at risk of having parts of the body structure fall off.
In fact, this isn’t the first time Tesla has recalled cars.
The move comes after the US National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) ordered Tesla to recall 158,000 Model S and X vehicles.Under pressure from US regulators, Tesla announced a recall of nearly 135,000 vehicles for touchscreen problems.
Statistics found that Tesla Motors (Beijing) Co., Ltd. also recalled some imported Model X series cars produced between March 16, 2016 and October 16, 2016, a total of 4,053 cars.
It’s worth noting that most of the vehicles affected are Model X and Model S models built in 2015 and 2016.
