Tesla and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk explained J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter-famed British author about Bitcoin on Twitter. He also revealed about owning an infinitesimal share of it.
On Sunday, Rowling took to Twitter and asked regarding how the Bitcoin functions. She tweeted, “I don’t understand bitcoin. Please explain it to me.”
Clearing her query, Musk tweeted, “Massive currency issuance by govt central banks are making Bitcoin Internet money look solid by comparison”.
“I still only own 0.25 Bitcoin btw”, he added.
Reverting to the reason Rowling tweeted, “People are now explaining Bitcoin to me, and honestly, it’s blah blah blah collectables (My Little Pony?) blah blah blah computers (got one among those) blah blah blah crypto (sounds creepy) blah blah blah understand the danger (I don’t, though.)”.
Responding to which Musk replied: “Pretty much, although massive currency issuance by govt central banks is making Bitcoin Internet money look solid by comparison.”
Twitterati also joined the conversation. A follower replied to Musk: “That’s irrational, supported you only saying it’s more solid than paper money .”
Another follower wrote: “There are good reasons why all those fake bot accounts constantly try to push fake bitcoin scams lol, I don’t trust bitcoin far as I can throw it.”
Replying to him, Musk said, “That is why you should only use trusted sources.”
Further he indicated that his company Tesla “might get into mining” previous year.
As per Livemint report, inspite of Twitter’s constant endeavours to prohibit scammers and impersonators on its platform, one impersonator broke into Musk’s official account with a fake lookalike verified account, promising his 22.5 million followers free Bitcoin and ethereum cryptocurrencies.
Later on Musk slammed both Twitter and Google for the increase in trolling networks and scams via fake bots.
“The crypto scam level on Twitter is reaching new levels. This is not cool,” Musk said.
