Elon Musk has been the latest target of Anonymous – a well-known hacker group. Anonymous has sent a warning shot to Tesla CEO Elon Musk in a new video detailing his wrongdoings, accusing him of damaging the lives of cryptocurrency investors with his tweets.
Anonymous has reprimanded Musk for his recent maneuvers in the cryptocurrency market in a video that has gone viral on the internet. Musk’s latest tweets, according to the video, show a clear contempt for the regular working person, and his “public temper tantrums” have “liquidated the hopes of hardworking people.”
“Reading from the comments on your Twitter posts, it seems that the games you have played with the crypto market have destroyed lives. Millions of retail investors were really counting on their crypto gains to improve their lives,” Anonymous states in the video below.
It also cites many recent actions by Tesla’s CEO, suggesting that the decisions were taken just for the company’s profit, with no consideration for the future of cryptocurrency in general. The most recent example is Tesla’s decision to discontinue accepting Bitcoin payments for its electric vehicles. According to Anonymous, it is commonly assumed that Tesla was pushed to reject this payment option.
It claims that the majority of the company’s revenue comes from green carbon tax credits granted by the governments of the countries in which it operates. It claims that the usage of Bitcoin was halted in order to protect the government’s income stream.
According to hacker group ‘Anonymous’, Musk was aware of the energy usage associated with Bitcoin mining before using it as a reason for Tesla’s refusal to accept Bitcoin payments. It further claims that Musk acted ignorantly to this in an “effort to play both sides of the fence” when the government’s supply of green credit money was endangered.
