Elon Musk’s Collaboration With Ethereum Turned Out To Be Fake News
A lot of crypto enthusiasts dream of seeing Elon Musk among the owners of a particular cryptocurrency. Of course, if this had become a reality, the crypto industry would have received a “whole army” of new members, fans of the brilliant developer Tesla. Is there no smoke without fire?
Elon Musk and Ethereum
Every year, the list of cryptocurrency adherents replenished with the names of world-famous personalities. Among those who support a digital currency and even own one or another crypto asset, there are government officials, Hollywood celebrities, and leading scientists. Many of them openly declare their faith in the great future of cryptocurrency. Such support from influential people is an excellent trigger for increasing confidence in the crypto industry.
Many of the crypto enthusiasts dream of ever seeing cryptocurrency owners Elon Musk, the CEO of SpaceX. That is why news on the purchase by Elon Musk of a particular cryptocurrency often appears on the Internet. In particular, the new that Elon Musk began cooperating with Ethereum caused a huge stir.
The spark for the spread of this rumor was the tweet of the famous actor William Shatner. He has long been friendly to cryptocurrency and has been considering the possibility of buying an asset. In 2019, he posted hot news on his account that triggered a wave of rumors.
Adherents of Ethereum enthusiastically reacted to this news. But their joy did not last long: Elon Musk denied the information about the purchase of Ethereum and cooperation with Vitalik Buterin. He tweeted about this.
Elon Musk reacted to this situation with irony. Tesla’s developer is known worldwide for his jokes and unpredictable statements, so his reaction was quite expected.
Elon Musk skillfully confuses cards
Rumors about Elon Musk buying a particular cryptocurrency appear regularly. This is due to the fact that he does not give an unambiguous assessment of Bitcoin and he answers slippery to journalists’ questions about cryptocurrency. In particular, in an interview in January 2020, Elon Musk said that “so far he has not decided on Bitcoins.” After some time, he told the author of Harry Potter Joanne Rowling that he owns 0.25 Bitcoin.
Such antics and irony are natural for Elon Musk; therefore, society is no longer surprised by the contradictory statements of this genius. However, the obvious fact is that Elon Musk highly appreciates Satoshi’s contribution to world history and considers him “very smart.” Time will tell if we see Elon Musk among the owners of any cryptocurrency.
