"Iron Man" encryption action

On April 29th, US time, Tesla CEO Elon Musk released a tweet with only one word: Ethereum.

This is not the first time that Musk mentioned Ethereum. As early as July 2018, Musk complained about the proliferation of Ethereum robot accounts.

In April of this year, Musk praised Dogecoin: "It's so cool, dog money may be my favorite cryptocurrency." And changed the account profile from "the former dog CEO" .

Some people commented that Musk’s move was for the Ethereum, but what exactly does Musk want?

Musk shout

Musk again "calls" on Twitter. He sent out a word: Ethereum (Ethernet). Blockchain media CCN said that shortly after Musk's push, ETH prices reversed the decline and rebounded.

At this time, it was less than one month since the last time Musk shouted a single dog coin.

On April 3, Musk praised Dogecoin: “It’s so cool, dog money may be my favorite cryptocurrency.” And renamed the account profile from “Chencoin’s former CEO” ". At the same time, the price of dog money increased from 0.019 yuan to 0.025 yuan, an increase of 31%.

Shouting is a foreign exchange term, but in the world of blockchain, the meaning of shouting is simple and straightforward. The idea can be understood as an influential person posting a good news or opinion on a cryptocurrency on a social platform. To increase the price of the currency.

But unlike the shoutings that everyone understands, Musk's move to change his account seems to be related to a previous vote on Twitter. The vote was about choosing a CEO for the dog currency. Finally, Musk was elected 49% more than Metal Wall CEO Marshall, Ethereum founder V God and others. Someone told Musk: "You can't refuse."

Shortly after being called the Ethereum, Musk said "jk" under the tweet, which seems to be joke.

Regardless of whether Musk is suspected of shouting, it is undeniable that Musk is the focus of the blockchain world. Up to now, this one-word tweet has received 4,600 messages, 8700 reposts and 100,000 likes. It is the influential influence of the blockchain "big bang" and KOL. He received more than 2620 million attention on Twitter.

On the other hand, bitter mainland co-founder Wu Jihanhan is known as the most powerful person in the blockchain world. He has returned to Twitter for several months, and the first tweet published has just surpassed the 2-digit number.

Realistic Iron Man

Most people's impression of Musk may stay on February 7, 2018, along with David Bowie's Space Oddity, Space X's Heavy Falcon rocket with a cherry red Tesla Roadster slowly slipping in In space, Musk was called a man who rewrote history.

The fans’ impression of Musk is that while they are spreading clean energy on the earth, they plan to colonize Mars while also digging pipes underground in the United States. A Reddit user described Musk as "the same name as Edison, Ford and other great people, and the closest to the real version of Tony-Stark."

In the mouth of the autobiographical writer, Musk is a new symbol of American innovation and technological strength after the economic crisis. It is called "the next Jobs" and is the real version of Iron Man.

In the public information, Elon Musk, known as "Iron Man", the founder of Paypal's predecessor X.com, held $165 million in cash at the age of 31, and now the head of SpaceX and Tesla.

In fact, whether in the traditional technology circle or the blockchain world, it is rare to see entrepreneurs like Musk who are not aware of self-improvement, and no one else can compare fans, the public and the self. The psychology is more understandable.

When curious about Musk's influence as a god, more and more people discovered that it was Musk's words that made the bland market aroused a small splash. The biggest puzzle of people comes from, what is the existence of Musk in the blockchain world?

We can't get more reviews from Musk, but maybe we can get in from another angle, that is, Musk's past experiences and remarks.

In fact, shouting is not a strange word for Musk. Before shouting a single dog coin and Ethereum, Musk was more accustomed to Twitter on his Twitter company, Tesla.

God knows that Muskdo loves Twitter. “Some people like to express themselves with hairstyles, and I like to use Twitter,” he said.

"My Twitter is my real idea, not the well-written corporate public relations drafts, those are old-fashioned propaganda methods," Musk said on Twitter.

According to the Wall Street Journal, Musk issued an average of 94 tweets per month from 2016 to 2017. By the middle of 2018, he had a monthly push of 400. From the time of launching, he kept staring at Twitter all the time.

$20 million in punishment

On August 7, 2018, US time, Musk woke up in the Los Angeles home, made a movement, and drove the Tesla Model S to the airport. He posted a message, considering the price of $420 per share. The company is privatized.

Before the news was released, he did not discuss with the board of directors or even discuss it with anyone. The price of $420 per share was not calculated.

This is exactly during the stock trading period, Tesla's share price soared, 7% a day, short-selling, potential losses once reached as much as $800 million.

Musk was accused of manipulating stock prices and the SEC immediately launched an investigation.

Three months later, the US SEC announced that Musk, because of publicly distributing false and misleading speeches, was suspected of securities fraud, would no longer serve as chairman of Tesla, and would not be allowed to serve as chairman of the board within three years. Sko and Tesla each paid a fine of 20 million US dollars.

This is not the first time Musk has shouted. On April Fool's Day in 2018, Musk joked on Twitter that Tesla was bankrupt and stimulated the company's share price to fall by 7%.

After the privatization of Tesla, the company set up an agency called “Information Disclosure Committee” in accordance with the penalty clause. In short, it is Musk’s “Tweet Steward”, responsible for the release of the stock price in Musk. Before the tweet is reviewed.

On February 19 this year, Musk issued a statement: “Tesla built 0 cars in 2011 and 500,000 units in 2019”, and is proud of his achievements in the past 8 years. However, the figure of “500,000” does not coincide with the expected “up to 400,000 units” released by Tesla’s financial report on January 30. The SEC then decided to file a complaint with the court after questioning Teslado's mail on the charge of Musk's "contempt of court."

On April 28, Musk and the SEC reached an agreement on Musk's use of Twitter (publishing information on Tesla's production, sales and privatization). The agreement specifically stipulates that Musk will publish information about Tesla in the future. Must obtain prior approval from their lawyer.

That is to say, Musk will issue information about Tesla afterwards, and he will also be handed over to the lawyer for approval. In the securities market, Musk’s right to speak is shown, but in the free world of the blockchain, Musk’s shouting is not Obstruction, even being encouraged.

In addition to the thrill of manipulating prices through the push, what is the connection between Musk and the encryption world?

Only 0.25 bitcoins

Mask’s attitude towards cryptocurrencies is embarrassing.

"Except for the 0.25 bitcoins that my friends sent me years ago, I have no cryptocurrency in my hands," Musk said at the beginning of last year.

On the other hand, he is close to the cryptocurrency.

In May of last year, Musk said on Twitter: "Then send encrypted candy." Irony Buffett does not understand virtual currency only knows to eat sugar, but this has nothing to do with virtual currency.

In February of this year, Musk said in an interview with the ARK Invest blog that password currency is much better than banknotes in terms of transmission value. Bitcoin's architecture is very smart, but on the other hand, the creation of password currency is too energy-intensive.

Last year, a foreign media called Blokt revealed that Blockchains LLC, a blockchain technology company in Nevada, announced that it has partnered with Tesla CEO Musk to build a pilot nature at the Tahoe-Reno Industrial Center (TRIC), the largest industrial park in the United States. The Smart City project is built on the Ethereum.

There have been foreign media reports, SpaceX former intern Gupta said that Musk is the founder of Bitcoin, Nakamoto.

The intern believes that Bitcoin is written by people who are proficient in C++, a language that Musk uses extensively on SpaceX. The “Super High Speed ​​Rail” paper published by Musk in 2013 shows that he has a deep understanding of cryptography and economics.

Later, Musk personally clarified that the report that "Bitcoin founder Nakamoto is Mask" is not true.

"Are you Nakamoto?" On Twitter, a netizen named Ikir asked Musk, and Musk never responded. The netizen immediately said: "He is, because he has been challenging himself."
