It Was Fun for a While, But Elon Musk Denies Theory He Created Bitcoin And he did so in true Elon Musk fashion.
A few days ago, a man who says he is a former SpaceX intern wrote a Medium post in which he hypothesized that Bitcoin creator Satoshi Nakamoto is actually Musk, citing that the SpaceX and Tesla CEO "is a self-taught polymath."
But, Musk apparently didn't want to let this rumor percolate. He took to Twitter Monday night to debunk the conspiracy.
Not true. A friend sent me part of a BTC a few years, but I don't know where it is.— Elon Musk (@elonmusk) November 28, 2017
Case closed. It seems the only "mining" Musk has been doing is for tunnels to minimize traffic.
