Musk founded Zip2, a provider of maps and company directories, PayPal, Tesla through a series of acquisitions, and SpaceX in a protracted series of entrepreneurial endeavors. He has been divorced three times, fathered seven children, a Shiba Inu dog, and his personal life is still more tumultuous.
Musk’s somewhat outlandish nature, meanwhile, might be too much for the restrictions of regulation. He is infamous for agreeing to pay a fine for fraud after falsely tweeting that Tesla was going private for $420 per share with “financing secured” and the US Securities and Exchange Commission. In recent years, Musk has become increasingly interested in the cryptocurrency industry. He has referred to cryptocurrencies as “indestructible” money and emphasized that governments shouldn’t work to impede their uptake.
Musk is still posting his full, unfiltered comments about the bitcoin industry as 2022 approaches. For instance, Musk complained that Twitter was wasting engineering resources on this BS while cryptocurrency scammers were throwing a spambot block party in every thread in response to Twitter Blue’s introduction of NFT profile images.
Musk then tweeted, “I will have a happy meal on TV if McDonald’s accepts Dogecoin,” when cryptocurrency investors started making jokes about working at McDonald’s in wake of the market fall. Aside from amusement, anticipate further cryptocurrency adoption around Musk’s portfolio of businesses as well as the Dogefather purchasing the dip.
