This is a message posted on facebook and YouTube by Anonymous taking Elon Musk to task over his recent meddling in cryptocurrencies and Bitcoin in particular.

Anonymous is a coalition of hackers and self-described freedom fighters who use the “V for Vendetta” Guy Fawkes mask as their logo and who have targeted many organizations over the years, including governments, corporations, Scientology and PayPal.

I do not have a transcript of the video, which has subtitles. But the narrator lays out a litany of accusations against Elon Musk — about his meddling in cryptocurrencies and causing a major drop in Bitcoin prices this week, which the narrator states affected the livelihoods of many small investors, about his business practices at Tesla, about his use of government money to finance his businesses and about investing in Bitcoin. Many of these accusations will ring true to many on this site. The message ends with a chilling warning — “expect us” — implying that the group is coming after Musk.


Here are a few quotes from the message —

people are beginning to see you as nothing more than another narcissistic rich dude who is desperate for attention

it appears that your quest to save the world is more rooted in a superiority and savior complex than it is in actual concern for humanity

You have been open about your willingness to stage coups in order to install dictators in places where your toxic products are being mined

you are just the only CEO who has gained a cult following through sh*tposting and trolling the world on social media

it seems that the games you have played with the crypto markets have destroyed lives

you may think that you are the smartest person in the room, but now you have met your match

We are Anonymous!

We are Legion!

Expect us.

What exactly the Anonymous group plans to do against Elon Musk is obviously not clear, but it is something to keep any eye on.

You will have to pardon me for posting a story on a topic I barely understand, let alone where I can provide any explanations. The world of Bitcoin and cryptocurrency is a mystery to me. Why are so many people, investors and CEOs are swooning over cryptocurrencies? We know why criminal enterprises like them. What value do cryptocurrencies create? Are they just digital tulips? Should you invest in them? How will all this work given the plethora of cryptocurrencies in the market? Are they good for the planet given their enormous energy footprint? Are they good for the future of humanity? How will they affect our politics?

Why is Anonymous targeting Elon Musk? What is Anonymous’ interest in Bitcoin? Is Elon Musk a villain here or is he simply upsetting the Bitcoin Ponzi scheme?

Hopefully, astute kossacks can enlighten us on this complex and puzzling topic.

This was the Elon Musk tweet this week that sent Bitcoin prices crashing –

This was another tweet, apparently propping up something called cumRocket, a cryptocurrency powering the adult entertainment industry. The currency price skyrocketed by over 350% in 24 hours.

Elon Musk has also been promoting a cryptocurrency called Dogecoin.

Bitcoin has lost 44% of its value since its all-time high of $63,314 on April 15, not all because of Elon Musk’s tweets.

There is a Bitcoin conference in Miami this week, where there is no love for Elon Musk.

Here is twitter CEO Jack Dorsey showing his extreme bullishness on the future of Bitcoin –

Dear kossacks — please help make sense of all this — of Bitcoin, of Elon Musk’s and Jack Dorsey’s foray into cryptocurrency, and of the warning message from Anonymous.
