Markus wrote: “My goal is to build things, make money and have fun. I’m used to the corporate establishment and don’t see any real break with it – Bitcoin only gives power to new rich people. “Musk answered, “That’s why I’m a Pro Doge.”
In the same thread, Dorsey clarified, “I’m not againstETH. I’m anti-centralized, owned by VC, single point of failure, and company controlled lies. If your target is anti-establishment I promise you it is not Ethereum. Do not believe me and do not trust me! Just look at the basics. “
Musk and Dorsey independently raised concerns to web3 this week. Musk tweeted, “I’m not claiming that Web3 is real – seems more of a marketing buzzword than reality at the moment.” Then followed another tweet: “Has anyone seen web3?” I can’t find it. ”At the beginning of December he did wrote, “Web3 sounds like bs.”
The Tesla boss is a big supporter of the meme cryptocurrency Dogecoin. He’s even known as the dogefather in the crypto community. In addition to Bitcoin and Ether, he also personally owns Dogecoin.
Musk, who was named Time Magazine Person of the year, announced last week that Tesla will accept DOGE for payments. He sees Bitcoin as Store of value and DOGE as the best cryptocurrency for transactions.
In October, Musk revealed another reason why he chose to support Dogecoin. “I spoke to a lot of people on the production lines at Tesla or when building rockets at Spacex’s own Doge. You’re not a Silicon Valley financial expert or a technologist. That’s why I decided to support Doge – it felt like the people’s crypto, “he said explained.
