Space X CEO and Tesla Boss Elon Musk is known for causing ripples in the global cryptocurrency market with his one tweet. One tweet from the US billionaire sets the price of a coin soaring or brings it to the surface. Recently, Elon Musk tweeted a picture of bitcoin with broken heart emoji, triggering its decline. Top-ranked cryptocurrency went down by nearly 7 per cent soon after Musk's tweet. Last week, he also shared a 'childhood' picture of his workstation with Shiba Inu dog featuring in it. Soon, the meme coin price saw a spike of nearly 30 per cent in two days' trading session.

However, this broken-heart emoji did not go down well with an anonymous hacker group, which warned the Tesla CEO of consequences if he continues to manipulate the prices of cryptocurrencies.

It also alleged that his 'games with cryptocurrency market' have destroyed millions of retail investors lives.
