Centibillionaire Elon Musk, who has recently been attacking Bitcoin over its environmental issues, has commented on the interview of Kraken CEO Jesse Powell about Bitcoin.

Powell stated that Bitcoin is greener than critics say it is and that Musk should learn more about BTC.

To the first statement, Musk responded on Twitter, asking on what sources this assumption was based and clearly doubting Powell's statement.

Musk has banned Bitcoin payments for Tesla until Bitcoin miners start using renewable energy for fifty percent of their operations globally.
