Hackers from the Anonymous group accused the billionaire Elon Musk of excessively influencing the bitcoin rate and neglecting the investments of ordinary people. Anonymous published their appeal to the entrepreneur on the Web.
“Millions of retail investors were counting on cryptocurrency profits to improve their lives. <…> Of course, they took the risk when they invested, everyone knows that you need to be prepared for the volatility of cryptocurrencies, but your tweets this week show a clear disregard for an ordinary working person, ”the hackers said in a video message.
On Friday, Musk tweeted with the hashtag #Bitcoin and a broken heart emoji. After this post, the price of the cryptocurrency fell by more than 6%, to about $ 36,750 and continued to fall.
“While hardworking people are dashed by your public hysteria, you continue to mock them with memes while in one of your mansions. You may consider yourself the smartest person, but now you have met your equal. We are Anonymous. We are legion. We’re going, ”Anonymous said in a statement.
The author of the video claims that Musk does not share the ideals that he publicly defends. He mentioned that Tesla refused to accept bitcoins due to the environmental friendliness of the cryptocurrency, but referred to an article by the Sunday Times, which says that the company continues to mine lithium, which also pollutes the environment. He also mentions that child labour is used in production.
