Hacker group Anonymous threatens Elon Musk for his various decisions regarding cryptocurrency. According to this group, Musk destroyed the lives of crypto investors with his company’s decisions “public temper tantrums “on social media. It claims that Musk’s public image is created for hidden purposes and now it is crystal clear.
Anonymous has now started targeting Ion Musk. He is being warned in a new video that tells him what he has done wrong. Anonymous threatens Elon Musk calling him responsible for the loss of crypto investors with his tweets.
The video mentioned how his recent tweets showed a disregard for the average working person that his “public temper tantrums “have liquidated the dreams of hard workers.
The group states in the video, “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 counting on their crypto gains to improve their lives.”
The video also highlighted many actions of the Tesla CEO, saying that his decisions were purely for the sake of his own company’s profits with no interest in the future of cryptocurrency in general.
For instance, recently Tesla stopped accepting Bitcoin payments for its electric cars. According to Anonymous, it is now believed that Tesla was compelled to denounce this payment option.
The hacker group says Tesla generates much of its revenue via green carbon tax credit from the governments of the countries in which it operates. Moreover, it alleges that it wanted to maintain this flow of revenue by stopping Bitcoin use.
Anonymous believes that Tesla’s CEO was aware of the energy consumption associated with Bitcoin mining before citing it as the reason to discontinue the Bitcoin payments.
It further alleges that Musk acted clueless about this in “an attempt to play both sides of the fence” when the supply of green credit money from the government was threatened.
Elon’s alleged unfair practices
These allegations by Anonymous were not limited to Bitcoin. The hacker group states that the Tesla CEO has enjoyed the “most favorable reputations of anyone in the billionaire class” for the recent past by tapping into the general public’s desire for electric cars and space exploration. This “carefully created public image,” however, is now being exposed.
Stating him as “nothing more than another narcissistic rich dude,” the video mentions that his quest to sustain the world is more rooted in a superiority and savior complex than to save humanity.
To pinpoint this, Anonymous cites the instance of multiple complaints by Tesla employees over strict working terms faced by them. It also considered the young children employed in lithium mines to produce lithium, the major component of lithium-ion batteries used in electric cars, or most other electronic devices for that matter.
In the video, Anonymous says that Musk is “not the only show in town” and that his competition is growing every day. Blaming him for social media trolling and memes affecting the lives of many others, the video sends warning shots to the Tesla CEO, stating- “you may think you are the smartest person in the room, but now you have met your match.”
Musk has taken note of the warning video. Since the video’s appearance online, the Tesla CEO has sent out a tweet saying “Don’t kill what you hate, Save what you love,” and has a new blacked-out Twitter profile picture. Perhaps the updates have no relation to the Anonymous video, however.
