Elon Musk: Bitcoin, coronavirus and Tesla

The tech billionaire continued to vent on Twitter about Tesla, coronavirus and Bitcoin.

Elon Musk, CEO of Tesla, 48, tired of flattening the coronavirus curve, called for freedom, Bitcoin, and complained that Tesla’s stock price was too high [na opinião dele]. Musk is an active Twitter user, but the billionaire really took an interest in the latest issues.

The electric car company’s shares fell immediately and have so far lost $ 15 billion in value. And his girlfriend, the Canadian singer who will give birth to Musk’s first child on Monday, is now “mad” at him. Oh, Elon!

Elon Musk and Bitcoin

On other occasions Musk has said he is not an enthusiast for the largest cryptocurrency by market value, but he has also said that BTC has a relevant role to play in society.

Among the few Twitter accounts that Musk interacted with during his storm of tweets was… a Bitcoin Twitter account, which tweeted that “the price of Bitcoin is too low”. Musk responded with a joke.

“How much does a Bitcoin anime cost?”

Why is Elon Musk angry?

Musk’s main complaint appears to be in quarantine against the coronavirus, which he has had enough of. “Now give people back their FREEDOM,” he tweeted.

Musk previously tweeted that “being afraid of the coronavirus is stupid” and called the US government’s measures “fascists”. Liberals, like author Tom Woods, joined Musk on his criticisms of the state.

“At the moment, Elon Musk is better than almost all prominent liberals, most of whom make timid suggestions”

“Anger, anger at the death of the light of conscience”

High-profile liberals in the crypto community followed suit, with John McAfee and Musk agreeing that “our democracy has been hacked” and Bitcoin.com founder Roger Ver calling for an end to the quarantine.

Many consider Musk’s comment about the coronavirus dangerous. In March, he tweeted a link to an article that boosted the drug, chloroquine, as a cure for the coronavirus pandemic. The article was written by two Bitcoin fans, James Todaro, managing partner at Blocktown Capital, and Gregory Rigano, lawyer and inventor of the blockchain platform IKU.

This angered people, as Bitcoin entrepreneurs “did not do any original research, but gathered long quotes from other scientists, who did very limited research,” tweeted Joan Donovan, a social media researcher at the Shorenstein Center.

Musk was in trouble because of what he said on Twitter earlier, and last year agreed that lawyers would approve written communications – including tweets – about Tesla in advance.
