On Monday, vocal Bitcoin hater and gold bug Peter Schiff took to Twitter to share that Tesla has actually been losing its share price after purchasing Bitcoin.

Today, Elon Musk responded to Peter Schiff, using only one emoji for that: an eggplant.

Musk has not appreciated Peter Schiff's opinion on Tesla's choice of asset

Schiff tweeted that after announcing its $1.5 billion Bitcoin bet earlier this year, the company's shares plummeted 20 percent.

He considered this outcome "Not an example other CEOs will likely follow."

Elon Musk responded to that, sending the Euro Pacific Capital CEO an eggplant emoji.


The chief of Binance, Changpeng Zhao, wrote that he had googled the meaning of this emoji and shared a screenshot in the comments.

Judging by what CZ found, it is clear that Elon Musk has not appreciated Schiff's opinion of the behavior of Tesla's stock price, nor does he value Schiff's opinion of business overall.

As reported by U.Today earlier, on Monday Elon Musk tweeted "Dojo 4 Doge." Dojo is the supercomputer being developed by Tesla to train neural networks.

Some redditors believe that Musk mentioned DOGE and Dojo in one tweet because he may want Dogecoin to power Dojo.

Prior to that, Musk suggested in his tweet that DOGE whales should sell their large holdings of this meme-coin that he favors.
