Anonymous Delivers Ominous Message To Elon Musk For Affecting Cryptocurrency Market
| Last updated
Anonymous has sent an ominous message to Elon Musk after the cryptocurrency market suffered a horrendous loss last month.
The Tesla and SpaceX CEO built up the digital currency market (specifically Dogecoin) with tweets and messages of support.
However, his appearance on Saturday Night Live and concern about the environmental impact of Bitcoin caused the whole market to tank disastrously.
People all around the world have lost hundreds, thousands and even millions of dollars.
Many were hoping their crypto nest egg would be their ticket to a new house or early retirement, however these investors have lost everything.
In response, Anonymous has warned Musk to be careful about how he talks about the market.
In a video posted to YouTube, the decentralised international hacktivist collective said: "Reading from the comments on your Twitter posts, it seems that the games you have played with the crypto markets have destroyed lives.
"Millions of retail investors were really counting on their crypto gains to improve their lives.
"Of course, they took the risk upon themselves when they invested, and everyone knows to be prepared for volatility in crypto, but your tweets this week show a clear disregard for the average working person."
They said Musk isn't anyone special when it comes to space exploration and said he's 'the only CEO who has gained a cult following through s**tposting and trolling the world on social media'.
The hacktivist group added the 'carefully curated' image of Musk is getting exposed and people 'beginning to see [him] as nothing more than another narcissistic rich dude who is desperate for attention'.
Musk was slammed for affecting 'hard-working people' who 'have their dreams liquidated over your public temper tantrums'.
He was also accused of making more money from Bitcoin than selling Teslas. Anonymous suggested Musk's environmental concerns about the cryptocurrency world was simplified too much in his tweet.
"This is a conversation that you have been having for over a year and were intimately aware of, but as soon as your main source of income was threatened you pretended to be clueless in an attempt to play both sides of the fence," they said.
Anonymous then dished out a pretty terrifying threat at the end.
"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," the group warned.
