Answering a Twitter inquiry, tech pioneer and innovator Elon Musk reveals how much cryptocurrency he owns right now. It’s not the much. Really.
Mr. Musk and Cryptocurrencies
Right now, there are scammers left and right on Twitter who impersonate blockchain and bitcoin personalities. You’ll see these tweets pretending to be, for example, Vitalik Buterin of Etherum or Justin Tron of Tron Network. The fake accounts lure people into sending coins in exchange for more coins.
Mr. Musk, whose ties to the cryptocurrency industry is zero, did not escape the eye of such scammers.
However, during one Twitter exchange, Mr. Musk revealed how much crypto he has.
Having .25 BTC doesn’t mean that Mr. Musk doesn’t like the idea of having digital currency. In 2016 he declared that Bitcoin was a “good thing”.
Mr. Elon Musk and Satoshi Nakamoto
In 2017, Mr. Musk’s name was all over the cryptocurrency world. Various reports speculated that he is, in fact, Satoshi Nakamoto, the creator of bitcoin. This speculation died when he publicly denied the reports, and the he had no active involvement with any cryptocurrency.
