Bitcoin made another appearance on Friday after billionaire Elon Musk defended his electric vehicle maker Tesla’s investment in the popular cryptocurrency. After Musk’s tweet describing Bitcoin as “simply a less stupid form of liquidity than cash,” the digital currency hit a new high of $ 53,263.

“Tesla’s approach doesn’t directly reflect my opinion. Having Bitcoin, which is simply a less stupid form of liquidity than cash, is adventurous enough for an S&P500 company,” Musk tweeted in response to a tweet about causing sub-zero cash returns through negative interest-bearing debt.

“To be clear, I’m * not * an investor, I’m an engineer. I don’t even own publicly traded stocks other than Tesla. However, if the fiat currency has a negative real interest, just a fool wouldn’t look elsewhere. Bitcoin is almost as bad as fiat money. The key word is “almost,” he added.
