Tesla and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk has said that “cryptocurrency is his safe word” in a tweet that was posted on April 13.
Cryptocurrency is my safe word
— Elon Musk (@elonmusk) April 13, 2019
Musk was responding to a user who jokingly asked if Musk was secretly bitcoin creator Satoshi Nakamoto. The billionaire entrepreneur has spoken about bitcoin and cryptocurrencies extensively in the past, mostly on Twitter.
Musk Mentions Speaks of Bitcoin and Crypto Yet Again
Musk has talked about cryptocurrencies several times in the past, even calling it “quite brilliant” and saying holders deserve a Nobel Prize for delayed gratification.
Musk has also joked in the past about Dogecoin being his favorite cryptocurrency. The Dogecoin Twitter handle polled followers on who they would like to see become the CEO of Dogecoin – and Musk trounced the competition. Musk obliged, changing his bio to read Dogecoin CEO and making a few tweets about the project.
Musk has appeared on the Joe Rogan Experience, the popular podcast that has also seen the likes of Jack Dorsey of Twitter (who also has positive words to say about bitcoin), though he had nothing to say about bitcoin or cryptocurrencies then.
