The last few days have been key for Bitcoin. And this is so, not only because of the spectacular increase in its price that has allowed it to reach historical maximum prices. But, especially, because of the progress it is making within the traditional financial market, convincing great business figures like Elon Musk to invest in virtual currency. And now, according to journalist and crypto influencer Max Keizer, Larry Ellison, founder of Oracle, could also buy Bitcoin.
Tesla’s entry into Bitcoin
Just two days ago Tesla, one of the largest and most important companies in the world, generated an earthquake in the financial market after announcing the purchase of 1.5 billion dollars in Bitcoin. In what represents the largest investment made by a traditional company in cryptocurrency.
This, of course, has strongly driven the price of Bitcoin. Which after spending several weeks stuck around $ 35,000, shot up in a matter of hours. Going from $ 37,916 for Bitcoin on February 7 to $ 47,697 two days later. This being the most important price jump for BTC so far in 2021.
However, amid the excitement about the increase in the price of BTC, the most important aspect of it is often forgotten. Well, beyond the gains that a new increase in the price of Bitcoin has generated. The fact that Tesla, the company of Elon Musk, the richest man in the world, has invested such an amount of money in a cryptocurrency. It is a very important signal for the financial markets, which will start to trust even more in Bitcoin and crypto assets.
Will Larry Ellison and Oracle be next?
For that reason, it is not surprising how many rumors have emerged in the last few hours, around which could be the next big company to buy Bitcoin. With some versions targeting big giants like Apple and Amazon, or their CEOs and shareholders individually.
However, so far the strongest rumor within the crypto world is that spread by Max Keizer. Journalist, writer and crypto influencer who through his account Twitter has commented that, according to a source, the next person to enter the cryptocurrency market will be Larry Ellison, founder of Oracle.

Of course, this is not an official purchase announcement, and thus far there has been no reaction from Larry Ellison or Oracle to Keizer’s comment. Which hasn’t stopped users in the crypto community from taking the rumor practically for granted, due to Keizer’s reputation as a trusted source. Being a matter of time for this rumor to be denied or confirmed.
