Bitcoin (BTC-USD) price predictions are a hot topic on Thursday as traders wonder where the crypto is heading on recent news from Tesla (NASDAQ:TSLA).

BTC is falling today as trading volume for the crypto decreased 18% over the previous 24 hours. Tesla is likely partially to blame for that following an update on its Bitcoin holdings in its most recent earnings report.

According to its earnings report for the second quarter of 2022, Tesla sold off 75% of its Bitcoin holdings. Elon Musk, founder and CEO of Tesla, said this wasn’t a verdict on Bitcoin. Instead, he justified the sale as necessary to increase Tesla’s liquidity amid Covid-19 lockdowns in China.

While Musk is still remaining positive on crypto, the recent news has some investors wondering what the future holds for Bitcoin. Let’s go over that with the latest price predictions below!
