Tesla CEO Elon Musk is making quite a bit of recognition as the “Internet Meme” as he makes his presence significantly known on the internet. As of now, Tesla stocks have tripled in value compared to last year. The company is well on its way to becoming the largest tech company in the world. As Elon Musk himself tweeted out this Friday on 25th of March 2021 quite boastfully saying that his company will be the best in the world and he went on to add that it will happen so within the span of a few months. He then proceeded to delete it within some time.
Elon Musk is a confident CEO and almost never has deleted his tweet. It is clear that Musk aims high and wants his company to be at the top. The CEO has actually learnt the way of making a name for himself on the internet has become more popular amongst the youth as a source of controversial memes. As people say all publicity is good publicity Elon musk wants to capitalize on that sometimes by writing the most over the top tweets and sometimes taking part in the meme culture as he did recently with his tweet on the reddit thread r\Wallstreetbets fiasco.
Elon Musk has also been an avid supporter of Bitcoins that are a type of cryptocurrency that can be mined. He went on record to say that people could buy one of his Tesla cars in Bitcoins and that Bitcoin isn’t converted to currency during the transaction and is preserved as a Bitcoin. Musk on Twitter wrote, “You can now buy a Tesla with Bitcoin.” He further noted, “Tesla is using only internal & open source software & operates Bitcoin nodes directly. Bitcoin paid to Tesla will be retained as Bitcoin, not converted to flat currency.”
Elon Musk has promoted Bitcoin a handful of times on social media and he seems to be quite passionate about it. His company Tesla recently invested $1.5 billion in cryptocurrency and he seems to be quite proud of it. In the past, Musk’s own wealth has seen massive ups and downs because of only what he has shared on his social media account. One tweet, for instance, had Musk saying prices of Bitcoin were high. It contributed to Musk losing $15 billion in a very short time.
Although Elon Musk actively abuses social media he is a very smart businessman as he invested in the Research and Development of Electrical cars and more cleaner sources of energy, with that much foresight Musk is one of the world’s richest persons and is challenging the No. 1 spot of Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos. His wealth has seen massive increases in recent times as the world moves towards electric mobility.
