Elon Musk Just Kidding with the ‘Ethereum’ Tweet; Crypto-Twitter Goes Hysteric Anyway


Elon Musk, one of the most prosperous entrepreneurs and minds of the 21st century is looked up to for plenty of reasons. The CEO of SpaceX and Tesla needs no introduction nearly everywhere on the planet. He’s 26.2 million followers on Twitter and more often than not Musk indulges in light-hearted banter with the Twitter community.

Crypto-Twitter (CT), on the other hand, is known for its hysterics. Any cryptocurrency related tweet be it allegations, opinions, or information invites an avalanche of tweets and it spreads like fire.

Elon Musk once again put this fact to test on early morning 30th April 2019. He just tweeted the title of one and CT went in a frenzy as anticipated. It was re-tweeted more than 3000 times in just two hours.

However, he had also followed the Tweet with a response

Vitalik Buterin, the co-founder and direct figurehead of Ethereum was thrilled by the joke, encouraged Elon into the Ethereum DevCon.

You should visit our Devcon in October 🙂

The Twitter thread grew longer with each passing moment, as Justin Sun came to shilling Tron and Bittorrent. A similar tweet was delivered by Gabor Gurbacs, the CEO and Digital Asset Director at VanEck also delivered a reply shilling his coin.

No. #Bitcoin

It is sort of building up as an inside joke between Elon and the Crypto-community because this isn’t the first time for Elon. Before Elon this season Elon had said that Dogecoin was his favorite cryptocurrency. In the turn of events which followed not surprisingly, the purchase price of Dogecoin started gaining momentum that was extreme in the subsequent days.  Elon Musk, as a result of his entrepreneurial brilliance and being the founder of Paypal has also been occasionally dubbed as ‘Satoshi Nakamoto. ’

Nonetheless, the conviction and optimism of the Crypto-Twitter community happen to be unshaken in the face of market sentiments and criticism. Elon Musk has also been drawn towards it with a positive outlook.

Furthermore, the fanatics are wary of big movements in the market. Any positive or negative piece of news has a considerable effect on the purchase price of the cryptocurrency. This highlights the vulnerability of the markets, currently. It wasn’t seen on this occasion as the purchase price of Ethereum is still below $160. No resistances are tested.

Do you think that the markets are becoming stronger and stabler with time or vulnerability exists? Please share your views.
