Members of the group claimed that, when reading comments on the businessman’s Twitter account, “it appears that the games he has played with the crypto markets have destroyed lives.”
Mexico City, June 6 (RT) .- The group of cyber activists Anonymous published this Saturday a video in which threatened to the CEO of Tesla and SpaceX, Elon Musk, charging the employer for manipulating the value of the bitcoin.
“Over the past few years, you have enjoyed one of the most favorable reputations of anyone in the billionaire class because you have taken advantage of the desire many of us have to live in a world with electric cars and space exploration,” they stated in a video that appeared on a YouTube channel associated with the group. They then said that, however, Musk’s “carefully created” public image “is being exposed and people are beginning to see that he is nothing more than another narcissistic rich guy who is desperate for attention.”
Members of the group claimed that, when reading comments on the businessman’s Twitter account, “it appears that the games he has played with the crypto markets have destroyed lives.” “Millions of retail investors were really counting on their crypto earnings to improve their lives,” they claimed, adding that the billionaire will never understand because “he was born into wealth stolen from a South African apartheid emerald mine and has no idea what the struggle is like. for the majority of working people in the world ”.
Anonymous said investors in cryptocurrencies knew to prepare for volatility, but Musk’s tweets posted this week “show a clear disregard for the average hard-working person.” While the dreams of working people were “liquidated by his public tantrums, he continues to taunt them with memes from one of his million-dollar mansions,” the group claimed.
“You may think you are the smartest person in the room, but now you have found your match,” they noted, ending the recording with the phrase: “Wait for us.”
BITCOIN FALLS AFTER MUSK POSTS
This Friday, Musk shared a meme of his own authorship about the separation of a couple, accompanied by the hashtag #Bitcoin and the emoji of a broken heart. Following the publication, the price of the cryptocurrency fell 7 percent.
Previously, the South African tycoon was a great promoter of cryptocurrencies and even his company began to accept bitcoin as a form of payment for its electric cars, until Musk became a critic of this currency citing environmental arguments. This May, it announced that Tesla was no longer accepting bitcoin as a payment method because, it argued, its mining process was consuming too much energy.
Those comments caused a huge drop across the crypto market. After hitting a record high of more than $ 64,000 in April, bitcoin plunged to roughly $ 30,000 in May.
