Investing in cryptocurrency is basically a pyramid scheme: the ones at the top make a fortune, and the rest get shafted.
Musk et al publicly invested a lot, which pushed the price up, so more bought seeing quick profit. And when they think it's got as high as it can, the big fish sell and rake in the cash, causing the price to crash back down - losing money for everyone else.

Remember: bitcoin and it's fellows have no "intrinsic value" - no currency really does anymore, but most are grounded more or less to a countries economy - the "value" of cryptocurrency is what people will pay for it rather than what it can buy ...
