Elon Musk is one of the inarguably one of the world’s greatest minds. He’s been part of Zip2, X.com, SpaceX, Tesla, SolarCity, Hyperloop, OpenAi, Neuralink and now The Boring Company (with flamethrowers).
Throughout these projects one theme is apparent. His aim is to help the human race deal with a variety of issues that are currently being experienced or will be a major issue in the future. This includes dealing with the fossil fuel consumption levels in the car industry by developing an electric car company called Tesla, as well as looking towards space exploration through his SpaceX company.
Therefore, when Elon Musk speaks or does anything for that matter, people take notice. This is why when he was pictured with a book about cryptocurrency in his hand, the internet rumor mills went crazy.
