He was also quoted as saying. “We have a monkey with a wireless implant in their skull who can play video games using his mind”.
Elon Musk on Dogecoin and Bitcoin
Bitcoin, GME, stock market and Dogecoin have been in the news a lot the past few weeks and Elon Musk has been tweeting about them all. Previously, Musk has joked around about Dogecoinin the past, but this time he seriously appeared to endorse Bitcoin. He said, “I’m late to the party but I’m a supporter of Bitcoin”, he said. This made the price of Bitcoin go up overnight.
He considered Dogecoin to be a meme currency but didn’t dismiss it. This is what he had to say about Dogecoin: “Arguably the most entertaining outcome, the most ironic outcome would be that Dogecoin becomes the currency of Earth of the future,” Immediately after his comments, the value of Dogecoin dropped a little bit. He even talked about his favourite TV shows and said Cobra Kai was really good and something he enjoyed a lot. He also talked about the whole Gamestop Reddit drama. The interview ran for about 90 minutes in total.
