Elon Musk’s Newest Title: “Most Hated Person in Crypto”

Based on his series of anti-Bitcoin tweets over the past several weeks, it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out that SpaceX rocket entrepreneur, Elon Musk, is not well liked within the crypto-community. He added even more haters following his latest Twitter post on Thursday, June 3rd where he cryptically used the heartbreak and Bitcoin emoji together at the top of the tweet. Implying some type of breakup…or something.

No one knows what Musk was trying to convey exactly in this tweet, but it managed to result in a 5% drop in the price per Bitcoin within hours. Hundreds took to the Twitter webs to chastise Musk for his nonsensical tweets that end up hurting everyday investors.

Musk’s series of silly tweets over recent weeks have not only hurt the holdings of individual investors, his actions are hurting his own reputation among potential customers of Tesla (NASDAQ:TSLA) vehicles, as well as his other consumer offerings including: Starlink satellite services, home solar systems, battery walls, and SpaceX flights.

As Yahoo! (NASDAQ:AABA) Finance first reported, favorable public sentiment toward Musk recently reached an all-time low based on research from sentiment measuring firm Awario, which tracked the positive-to-negative ratio regarding tweets about Musk.

According to Awario, in January 2021 Musk had the same percentage of positive versus negative tweets. In May, the positive-to-negative sentiment dropped about 25% – marking the lowest level since Awario started tracking public sentiment for Musk last October.

Ironically and inexplicably, he has done this damage to himself – eroding public support, trust, and respect, one ridiculous tweet at a time.

Since March, Musk has named himself the “Technoking of Tesla” and the “DodgeFather” – perhaps it’s time Musk accept another title from cryptocurrency influencer FABRI, who tweeted it to his more than 400,000 followers on Twitter.

Hmmm…”most hated person in the crypto world” – it has a nice ring to it, perhaps since it’s the ring of truth.

On the Flipside

  • If Musk continues to deride Bitcoin via Twitter, he could spark a shareholder lawsuit from Tesla investors.
  • Tesla bought $1.5 billion worth of the cryptocurrency earlier this year. Musk’s social media antics have caused that particular Tesla asset to decline hundreds of millions in dollars in value.
  • In 2019, Musk settled a suit with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission that placed restrictions on what he could tweet about Tesla and cost his company $40 million in fines.
  • Since Bitcoin is not considered a security by the SEC, it’s likely that Musk’s senseless, anti-Bitcoin tweets will continue unabated.
