Why Elon Musk doesn’t like NFTs?
This change comes after Twitter announced that they are capable of transacting in crypto. That means users can send or receive cryptocurrency, Bitcoin to be more specific. Previously, Musk announced that Tesla would accept Bitcoin in payments for its cars. Because of his Environmental concerns, he retracted his decision.
In another Tweet, Tesla CEO said that while the company is spending engineer resources, crypto scammers are playing with the market.
Elon Musk doesn’t believe in the Metaverse idea. However, he believes that we need another planet that we can escape to when our world ends. For him, there is a time that every creature on Earth will die as the sun expands.
