Musk has talked about Ethereum [ETH] many times. However, the very first topic was related to spam-bots on Twitter, which also led to the “Not giving away ETH” campaign on social networking. Scammers used to mimic the media handles of cryptocurrency influencers on social media handles, including Twitter and Telegram.
This would be followed by these claiming to “giveaway ETH” or any other digital currencies, after users sent a specific amount of crypto initially to a specific address which would be completed. Basically, the scammer would request a user to send ETH to an address, asserting that he’d send back more ETH, leading to many members losing their funds.
On this, Elon Musk had said,
“I want to know who is currently running the Etherium scambots! Mad skillz. ”
