Elon Musk and his tweet about Ripple’s XRP

Tesla CEO and richest man in the world tweeted, Elon Musk, recently about Ripple’s cryptocurrency controversy, XRP.

In fact, Elon Musk never tweeted anything about XRP or Ripple, since this is a fake profile.

Similar things have happened in the past, for example, with Peter Schiff or Mike Novogratz and, unfortunately, the problem persists.

For example, Jack Dorsey’s tweet announcing the launch of his Bitcoin node was followed by at least two fake profiles inviting people to possible scams.

In this specific case, it is the profile of @XrpJackson, renamed “Elon Musk” with a profile image identical to the original of Elon Musk (@elonmusk).

Among other things, this fake profile also tweeted about Doge and also responded to a tweet from Musk’s official profile.

The fact is that there have been two attempts to artificially raise the price of both XRP and Dogecoin recently, so it is not surprising that this fake profile has decided to try to promote these two cryptocurrencies by misusing the name Elon Musk.

To be honest, it is strange that Twitter accepts such behavior, and perhaps it is Elon Musk himself, the real one, who is asking for fake profiles like this to be blocked.

Could Elon Musk really support Ripple’s cryptocurrency?

While it is known that the real Musk is interested in Dogecoin, it is also known that he never showed interest in XRP or Ripple.

In addition, while Dogecoin and Bitcoin are decentralized projects created by free citizens who somehow “donated” them to humanity, XRP is, instead, it is a project created and carried out by a private company , Ripple, which is obviously not decentralized.

It would be quite strange if, in light of that, Elon Musk became interested in Ripple.

The fact that an attempt was also made in XRP to organize an artificial bomb, which then failed, to apparently protect the cryptocurrency from a SEC attack, should not be misleading. True bitcoiners, who recognize decentralization as the main advantage of cryptocurrencies, would never support a battle to support XRP. And given that Elon Musk is apparently a true supporter of Bitcoin, it would be somewhat surprising if he did.
