Elon Musk, once loved and respected across the bitcoin community, now faces a lot of criticism due to the sheer influence he holds over price fluctuations. According to this recent poll on Twitter, 82% voted in favor to ban Elon Musk from Twitter.
While many well-known, crypto celebrities have expressed their frustration, the latest development is surely eye-catching. The anonymous hacker movement is well-established as anti-government and has targeted the North Korean Government in the past, as well as PayPal and Mastercard. Now, they have a message for Elon Musk.
“…recently your carefully created public image is being exposed, and people are beginning to see you as nothing more than another narcissistic rich dude who is desperate for attention.”
Later, the decentralized group accused Musk of constantly trolling the crypto market. Ergo, affecting lives and sentiments.
“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 further added:
“It appears that your quest to save the world is more rooted in a superiority and savior complex than it is an actual concern for humanity.”
Towards the end of the video, Anonymous had a message directed straight to the billionaire in question. It read,
“You may think you are the smartest person in the room, but now you have met your match. We are Anonymous! We are legion. Expect us.”
Now, having said that, Musk didn’t directly respond to such allegations face to face. However, a recent Twitter post might suggest that it’s some kind of response to the video.
Other community reactions…
Growth Lead at Kraken, Dan Held too expressed his frustrations with regard to Musk. He had earlier stated:
“It’s supremely disrespectful. We embraced him [Musk] with open arms and he kind of just trashed it… It felt very “trolly.” It was just ridiculous,” he said.
Podcast host, Peter McCormack was quite vocal about this as well. He had stated:
“Bitcoin is bigger than Elon. Bitcoin is bigger than anyone else. The market now knows that he’s just jerking around. We don’t really care about what Elon has to say about Bitcoin anymore.”
