Elon Musk claimed to have quickly identified SBF. The founder of FTX had contacted him as part of the redemption of Twitter. ” My bullshit counter was ‘redlining‘. It was like this guy was a fraud “.
This morning, the CEO of Tesla, Space X and recently Twitter joined a chat room on his social network dedicated to the potential hack that seems to have hit the bankrupt crypto-exchange FTX last night.
During a speech, Elon Musk returned in particular to Sam Bankman Friedsignals Coindesk. The founder of FTX had contacted him earlier this year in connection with the takeover of Twitter.
To be honest, I had never heard of him. But then a ton of people told me he had huge amounts of money he wanted to put into the Twitter deal. And I talked to him for about half an hour. And I know my bullshit counter was ‘redlining’. It was like this dude was a fraud (this dude is bullshit),” Musk said.
For the American billionaire, who preferred to turn to CZ and Binance to bring Twitter from Web3so there was a strong chance that SBF “don’t make it”.
“Everyone was talking about him like he walked on water and had a zillion dollars. And this [n’était] not my impression… this guy is right – something is wrong, and he has no capital, and he won’t make it. It was my prediction,” he said.
The new CEO of Twitter also invited investors to keep their digital coins in cold wallets and not on scholarships. He concluded his intervention by advising to position oneself on Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETH) as well as on his favorite token: Dogecoin (DOGE).
“I think there is probably a future for BTC, ETH and DOGE. I can’t really talk about the others. But if you have one of these three […]I think it can work well,” he said.
