‘Expect us’: Hacktivist group Anonymous threatens Elon Musk for ‘playing games’ with Bitcoin.
Anonymous is a decentralized international activist/hacktivist collective/movement widely known for its various cyber-attacks against several governments, government institutions and government agencies, corporations, and the Church of Scientology.
Recently, Anonymous has threatened Tesla CEO Elon Musk to “expect” them, saying the games played by the entrepreneur with crypto markets seemed to have destroyed lives. In a video posted on the Facebook page of Anonymous, the hackers said that the “carefully curated” image of Elon Musk is getting exposed, and people are “beginning to see him as nothing more than another narcissistic rich dude who is desperate for attention.”
Anonymous said that people have started learning that the vast majority of Tesla’s income doesn’t come from selling cars but from government subsidies and selling carbon tax credits for the innovation with clean energy. “This, technically, isn’t your innovation though, because you aren’t the founder of Tesla. You simply purchased the company from two people much more intelligent than you are, Mark Eberhard and Marc Tarpenning,” they added.
The group also claimed that Tesla has made more money by holding Bitcoin for a few months than they have by selling cars for years. They even suggested that it is more than likely the Bitcoins were purchased with money from government subsidies. “It is now widely believed that you have been forced to denounce your company’s involvement with Bitcoin to keep that green government money flowing into Tesla’s coffers,” Anonymous said.
“You may think you are the smartest person in the room, but now you have met your match. We are Anonymous! We are Legion! Expect us,” the group warned.
