Elon Musk reveals his safe word... it's cryptocurrency

Elon Musk has been playing with the emotions of the cryptocurrency industry for many months now, hinting at his affection for bitcoin and cryptocurrencies without actually pulling the trigger and jumping in himself, or better yet, accepting Bitcoin in exchange for a Tesla…

Musk’s relationship with cryptocurrencies seems to flitter between genuine interest in its innovativeness to interest in its meme potential…

However, it’s the latter which has prompted Musk’s latest acknowledgment of the crypto industry, with Elon musk revealing his safeword as cryptocurrency:

Whether or not Musk actually screams out “cryptocurrency” when things get a little too heated in the bedroom is beside the point; the real issue on the lips of every crypto enthusiast is, when will he pledge himself (and Tesla) to the cause?

Musk’s affection with the cryptocurrency industry isn’t simply because of its ample deliverance of high-quality memes but also due to its fundamental use cases.

Back in February the Tesla CEO called Bitcoin “brilliant’ adding “paper money is going away. And crypto is a far better way to transfer values than a piece of paper, that’s for sure.”

So will we see Musk finally follow in the footsteps of Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey and fully support this nascent industry? Perhaps…  for now, however, we’ll have to make do with the memes.
