Tesla boss Elon Musk, who is particularly famous for his Trump-like tweeting style, has voiced his opinion about Ethereum (ETH), the world’s second largest cryptocurrency.
At this point, I want ETH even if it is a scam— Elon Musk (@elonmusk) August 28, 2018
Even though this tweet clearly has a rather negative connotation with regards to cryptocurrencies, Elon Musk’s tongue-in-cheek comment has generated thousands of likes and retweets due to his acknowledgment of Ether. This interest is not surprising– Musk’s Twitter was earlier plagues with Ethereum spam bots.
Earlier, the eccentric billionaire also jokingly wanted to launch his own cryptocurrency called ‘Cryptocandy’ in order to spite Warren Buffet, a famed cryptocurrency critic who earlier called Bitcoin ‘rat poison squared.’
