It seems that ever since Elon Musk announced that his favourite crypto is DogeCoin, people have gone on to great lengths to somehow connect the “dots” between Musk and any relatable cryptocurrency that might be of interest to him.
Just last month, Leaprate reported that the founder of Dogecoin, Jackson Palmer, said he is ready to sell Dogecoin.com for the colossal sum of $4.2 billion. Elon Musk, after declaring his interest in the crypto, accepted to be the CEO of DOGE. Mr. Palmer was actually of the cryptocurrency space for some time until Elon Musk’s comment. In his tweet, he said that “Funding (not yet) secured”.
Now, the CEO of Binance has “pitched” the idea of SpaceX Coin to Elon Musk, it seems. The pitch was made through Twitter, where Binance CEO said:
SpaceXcoin, Elon Musk. Space exploration shall be funded globally using crypto. Investors shall have their names inked on the blockchain.”
The idea is that cryptocurrency can sponsor trips to space and that Elon Musk, as one of the most respected and successful entrepreneurs of our time, may lend credibility to the entire cryptocurrency “universe”.
Joke or not joke, while the crypto space tries to spark Musk’s interest in the subject, the founder of Tesla and SpaceX often “jokes around” with the cryptocurrency community. For example, on April 29th, 2019, Elon Musk tweeted the word “Ethereum” and shortly after that tweeted “JK (just kidding”.
On the other hand, Musk challenged the creator of Ethereum to name the top best applications of his coin (essentially, blockchain project) and Buterin named 13 plausible applications.
In addition, Musk reportedly does not own any cryptocurrency, except 0.25 of Bitcoin that some friend of his sent years ago.
