Entrepreneur and investor Bobby Lee, founding member of Bitcoin Foundation, has confirmed that he is true to his word. A futuristic electric vehicle, Tesla Cybertruck, is at stake when Bitcoin (BTC) rockets over $40,000.
The most generous giveaway in crypto history
Today, Jan. 8, 2021, Bitcoin (BTC) has routinely printed new all-time highs over $41,500. This means that the breathtaking mark of $40,000 may become a support for flagship crypto price dynamics. For Mr. Lee, that means that he has to keep his promise from June 2020 and send a Tesla Cybertruck to one lucky follower.
On June 2, 2020, Bitcoin (BTC) entered five-digit waters for the first time since Black Thursday in Crypto, witnessing a double-digit daily price spike. Mr. Lee announced that he was going to buy a Tesla CyberTruck in 2021 with nothing but one Bitcoin (BTC).
To prove that he was dead serious about this prediction, he promised to give away one free Tesla CyberTruck to a lucky person just for liking and retweeting his announcement. The bet is good until late 2021, so its terms were honored yesterday.
This memorial tweet was retweeted 8,800 times with 607 quote tweets and 10,400 likes in seven months. And its confirmation gained 6,000 retweets in less than half a day!
Will Elon Musk keep his promise?
Meanwhile, Mr. Lee added that, to meet all conditions of the bet, Elon Musk should release Tesla CyberTruck in 2021. The unveiling of the dual-motor AWD vehicle is scheduled for late 2021, while the single-motor versions are expected to arrive in 2022.
The price of one CyberTruck will vary between $39,900 and $69,900.
With its ongoing upsurge over $41,500, Bitcoin is up 315 percent since Bobby Lee’s tweet. However, it needs to gain 69 percent more to be able to buy the most luxurious self-driving editions of Tesla’s futuristic truck.
