Tesla founder Elon Musk sold more Tesla shares a week ago than he needed to pay his current tax liabilities. At that time, the amount was $ 8.8 billion, but he continues to sell shares in the company.

He sold another 934,091 shares this week for $ 1.05 billion. Since the beginning of this month, he has sold nearly $ 10 billion worth of shares in the company. Initially, he announced that he would sell 10% of the company’s shares, at that time they were valued at $ 21 billion. That is, he has now sold about half of the planned number of securities.

The sharp drop in Tesla shares happened after a poll in which Elon Musk asked readers if he should sell the company’s shares. Then the rate fell from 1200 to 1000 dollars, but then there was an adjustment, and now the companies give about 116 dollars per share.
