Bitcoin [BTC] seems to be slowly gaining prominence in the mainstream, with more celebrities and influencers creating a buzz about the coin. This has been observed in many instances with the CEO of Tesla, Elon Musk, speaking about the cryptocurrency market.
He has offered his opinion regarding the cryptocurrency space in the past while speaking about the multiple scam accounts on Twitter that replied to his tweets. This has caused a lot of angst amongst the cryptocurrency Twitter community, referenced by Musk, who stated:
“Great actions by Twitter to delete bogus accounts. Will increase usage by real users.”
In a reply to a Tweet by one of his followers, Musk stated:
“At this point, I want ETH even if it is a scam”
He then later teamed up with the Creator of Dogecoin [DOGE], Jackson Palmer, to combat the scam bots on Twitter. This was done through the use of a script, which was then implemented by Musk to counteract the effects of the scam bots.
More recently, Musk tweeted out that he liked anime, prompting replies from almost 10,000 individuals. To add fuel to the fire, Musk said in one of the replies:

This led many to chime in, including the CEO of Binance, Changpeng ‘CZ’ Zhao. He stated across tweets:
“Lol, it’s spreading. I will buy a Tesla if you accept crypto…I typed bnb first, but switched it out. Let’s grow the industry.”
User Don’tFollowMe on Twitter stated:
“Nah, give me some XRP instead.”
Tommy Mustache stated:
“Elon, when can I buy a Tesla with my Bitcoins? Please make it happen soon.”
This comes after fake reports emerged last week that Elon Musk’s Boring Company was accepting Bitcoin, Ethereum [ETH], Litecoin [LTC] and Bitcoin Cash [BCH] and other cryptocurrencies as payment for their flamethrower.
